  • Quotes

    • Hawk: (when the Captain doesn't return from his recon patrol) I don't like it. He's been gone too long.
      Pilot: Trouble?
      Tank: What else is new?

    • Scout: Captain! Bio-Dread at 4 o'clock!
      Captain Power: Has he seen us? (the Jumpship shudders and sparks fly)
      Tank: He's seen us.

    • Scout: (referring to Soaron) What's he doing out here? How'd he find us in all this?
      Captain Power: Maybe he didn't find us. Maybe we found him.

    • Zig: Don't play wrong-dumb with me! Saw you I did! You with your promises, take them away to safe haven, and what did they get but the big bio-bird himself and you fry 'em with... But my folks are law believers. Taught me right. We're gonna give you a.. trial, that's the word. And then we're gonna kill you.
      Captain Power: Not much of a trial.

    • Captain Power: (to the fake Captain Power Jason) Pretty Power Suit. Too bad it's not the real thing- because you're gonna need it!
      Jason: You don't really think I came alone... (a squad of Bio-Dread troopers come out of hiding) Did you?
      Captain Power: If you had a thousand of them, they wouldn't keep me from you.

    • Captain Power: (to the fake Captain Power) I made a promise to my father that I would never take a human life, that I would protect and preserve all people. You almost made me forget that promise. Almost.
