When Jason holds out his morpher, the power coin is not in the usual upright position.
The voice effect used to change the Red Alien Ranger's voice is different than the one used for the Alien Rangers in MMAR.
INCORRECTLY REGARDED AS A GOOF: The Machine Empire Generals still existed, despite the rest of the Machine Empire being wiped out in "Countdown to Destruction (2)". It was stated in "A Zeo Beginning (2)" that the ME had broken off from the United Alliance of Evil, and were conquering galaxies on their own. The Generals were busy ruling those during King Mondo and family's time near Earth. Whatever happened that made the Machine Empire return to the UAoE between "Good as Gold" and "From Out of Nowhere (1)", apparently left the Generals exempt from involvement in Dark Specter's plans. Since they weren't actively involved with the domination of the universe in CTD, Zordon's wave didn't touch them. This is pretty much an unspoken truth, that Zordon only stopped the invading forces led by Astronema, not ALL evil everywhere.
INCORRECTLY REGARDED AS A GOOF: The lack of Rocky DeSantos, the second MMPR Red Ranger. Attempts were repeatedly made to contact Steve Cardenas, but he was unreachable, right up through post-production. Not that it would have mattered, since his only Red power belonged to Jason first. The Red Ninja Powers from season 3 were the only power officially "lost", and even if he had them, they were just a step between being unmorphed and being morphed. If anything, as that, he'd be a liability to the others. Use of the MMPR: The Movie suit would be impossible, since they were owned by 20th Century Fox and not Saban, which by now was owned by Disney.
When all of the Red Rangers place their fists together near the episode's end, the camera angle facing upwards shows a lack of Leo's hand, despite his being visible in all other shots. This is due to the fact he wasn't there for original filming, and it was impossible to digitally add him to that particular shot.
During the "comparing Red Ranger deeds" at the end, when Andros says he saved two worlds, his lips don't match the dialogue. According to the shooting script, he originally stated, "I destroyed Zordon! What about that?!"
After Tommy hits Gerrok with the Zeo 5 Power Kick as he briefly starts to fly away you can see part of the stop motion camera used to make the "Matrix style" shot in the bottom left corner of the screen
Each Alien Ranger had a particular symbol, represented on their helmets, belts, Battle Borgs and even the Shogun Zords. But the belt Aurico wears isn't his circle, but the pentagon shape of the Black Alien Ranger.
Not neccessarily a nit, but Tommy's Zeo morphing sequence skips his spoken line, "Zeo Rangers 5: Red!"
As Jason and Cole run toward Serpentera as it takes off, the shot is reveresed, placing Jason's Blade Blaster holster and Cole's Crystal Saber holster on the wrong sides. The holsters should both be on the left hip.
INCORRECTLY REGARDED AS A GOOF: Tommy uses his Zeo Powers, despite how they haven't been seen nor mentioned since the Turbo Movie. Clearly, the Zeo Powers were retired somehow, for some reason. They were never destroyed. They were never stated to have been converted into the Turbo Powers (as some fans incorrectly thought). So, whereever they went, for this mission of all-reds, Tommy got his back for this battle only.
INCORRECTLY REGARDED AS A GOOF: TJ uses his Turbo powers, though they were destroyed in "Chase Into Space (2)". As we saw in "True Blue To The Rescue", the Turbo Powers were not lost after all. The red car TJ drives here is intended to be Lightning Cruiser (with a makeover), and since Red Turbo used to summon the power of his Zord, Red Lightning, much like how Justin could become Blue by powering through Storm Blaster, TJ seems to be able to become Red Turbo through Lightning Cruiser.
INCORRECTLY REGARDED AS A GOOF: TJ is Red Turbo Ranger, though we last saw him as Blue Space Ranger. It's possible that since we last saw him, his space powers were destroyed. Or, since he is the only Red Turbo who doesn't have another "red power" (unlike Tommy), for this mission of all reds, he took up the mantle of Red Turbo one last time.
INCORRECTLY REGARDED AS A GOOF: TJ claims the Machine Empire was defeated by the Zeo Rangers, when they were actually destroyed by Zordon's wave in "Countdown to Destruction." He's actually referring to the Zeo Rangers repelling King Mondo's invasion of Earth throughout the PRZ season. Though their final battle was unchronicled (outside of the semi-canon "Scorpion Rain"), fact was, the Zeos ran the ME away from Earth somehow before PRT (despite how it's generally believed Dark Specter summoned them away, along with Rita & Zedd. From a human standpoint, the Zeos got rid of them).
INCORRECTLY REGARDED AS A GOOF: Bulk being back on Earth, as he was last shown on Mirinoi. "Trakeena's Revenge" established a wormhole between Mirinoi and Earth existed. He could get back home, he would get back home (to Skull), and this ep makes it clear he did.
During the Alien Ranger's time on Earth (end of MMPR Season 3), they each had a red and gold laser pistol in a holster on their left hip. However here in all shots of Aurico morphed as the Red Alien Ranger, his only weapon is the sword on his back. His laser pistol is missing.
T.J. shouldn't be able to use the Turbo Lightning Sword when morphed as the Turbo RAM, of which the Sword was a part, was destroyed in the battle with Goldgoyle in "Chase into Space (1)".
When T.J. morphed, he inserted his Turbo Key into the wristband of his Turbo Morpher (something done throughout PRT, simply because the motions combined with the position was very hard to place the key in the slot).
INCORRECTLY REGARDED AS A GOOF: "Jason shouldn't have his powers because the Command Center was destroyed". It was established in "Always A Chance" that the original Dino Coins could still operate without the CC being around. Unlike Adam's in that one, Jason's T-Rex Coin here was somehow not damaged by the grid overload in "Ninja Quest (1)". As for why Jason has the coin and not Rocky, either two sets of coins were made in "The Power Transfer (2)", or Rocky, who has no need of a working Power Coin now that he's Blue Zeo, gave it back sometime after the Turbo movie.
INCORRECTLY REGARDED AS A GOOF: All nitpicks about the moon aren't nitpicks at all, they're mistakes on the viewer's part. There's been gravity, air and a sunny atmosphere on the moon since the show began back with "Day of the Dumpster". It's called "consistancy."
When Serpentera was first seen, the Thunderzords were ants compared to its size. But when Cole flies into its mouth, he's nearly the size of the zord's head. Perhaps the new Neo-Plutonium fuel caused a molecular shrinkage. Or being buried on the lunar surfaced compacted its form due to its low gravity. Or Venjix, having rushed into Serpentera without figuring out all of its features, had it in a mode which made it smaller, and didn't have time to transfigure it to massive mode.
After Leo demorphs, the ME Generals come out. If you look at the rangers in the long-shot, Leo is still in his ranger suit briefly.
General Venjix: What? 10 Red Rangers?!
Jason: Well, what are we waiting for?
Tommy: Let's do it guys!
Jason: It's Morphin time! Tyrannosaurus! Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger!
Tommy: It's Morphin time! Red Zeo Ranger! Hyah!
T.J.: Shift into Turbo! Red Turbo Ranger! Hyah!
Andros: Let's rocket! Red Space Ranger!
Leo: Go, Galactic! Go, Galactic!
Carter: Lightspeed Rescue! Red Lightspeed Ranger! Hyah!
Wes: Time for Time Force! Time Force! Hyah!
Eric: Quantum power! Quantum Ranger! Hyah!
Cole: Wild access! Hyah! Red Wild Force Ranger!
Aurico: Red Alien Ranger! Hyah!
Tommy: All right, guys, let's do it.
Tommy: I was starting to wonder whether you'd show up at all.
Jason: You didn't think I was going to let you do this without the original Red Ranger, did you?
Cole: (amazed) Wow. So, that was Tommy. He really is the greatest Ranger.
(the other Red Rangers laugh and scoff)
Cole: What? What'd I say?
T.J.: Well, I wouldn't go that far. After all, I was the one that replaced him.
Jason: Are you kidding me? I was doin' all the work while he was at the Juice Bar kissing on Kimberly.
Carter: All right, well, at least his haircut's regulation now. Right?
Eric: Yeah. My Q-Rex would eat this Dragonzord for lunch! (gestures like a dinosaur munching down)
Leo: He never discovered new galaxies!
Wes: Hey, wai-wai-wai-wait. I changed history. So why does he have a fan club, and I don't?
Andros: Hey! I saved 2 worlds! What about that?!
T.J.: Wai-wai-wai-wai-wait! Did I ever tell you guys about the time I got baked in that giant pizza?
Everyone else: (without spunk) Yeah.
Venjix: We finally found it. Cogs, keep digging! Zedd was a fool to leave this buried here. His loss, our gain.
Tommy: (concerning Serpentera) Aww man! That is one ugly zord!
Jason: (to the Machine Empire generals) You know, if you miss King Mondo that much, I promise we can help you join him.
Jason: You must be the new guy.
Cole: Hi! I'm Cole!
Jason: *pats Cole on the arm* Good.
Cole is the only Wild Force Ranger to appear morphed in this episode. The other four Rangers only appear briefly in this episode and have no lines (though did all speak in a deleted scene).
Bulk & Skull's claims of meeting Lord Zedd and Rita harkens back to MMPR Season 3's "Master Vile and the Metallic Armor (2)".
An extended Bulk and Skull scene involves them listing all of the Footsoldiers up to now, as well as mentioning them fighting the Machine Empire (PRZ's "King for a Day (2)"), getting turned into chimps by Divatox (although it was Elgar in PRT from "Shift into Turbo (1)" - "Honey, I Shrunk the Rangers (2)"), Professor Phenomenus (whom Skull wants to avoid), and Stone Canyon (sister city of MMPR's Angel Grove). The scene also features more dialogue from Tommy, who is confirmed to their "boss" at Club Bulkmeier's.
This is the final time the phrase "May the power protect you" is used on the show.
This episode features the first and only appearance of the Astro Megaship, Mark II. It replaces the original (and reuses the model prop of it), which was destroyed in PRLG's "Journey's End (2)". Similarly, this is the first and sole appearance of Alpha 7. His suit is made up of pieces of both Alphas 5 and 6 (as well as the voice of the former, and had more lines in a deleted scene).
This marked the first (and final) appearance of Lord Zedd's Power Zord, Serpentera, since 1996's "A Zeo Beginning (2)".
This marks the first time Cogs have been seen since PRiS' "Countdown to Destruction (2)", and also the final time they ever appear. Similarly, this is the first time we've seen both Bulk and Skull together since that episode.
Other involvement by former Power Rangers include Archie Kao (Blue PRLG Ranger) voicing General Venjix, Catherine Sutherland (Second Pink MMPR Ranger, Pink Zeo Ranger, and First Pink Turbo Ranger) voicing Tezzla, and Walter Jones (First Black MMPR Ranger) voicing Gerrok.
TJ's full name is finally revealed to be Theodore Jay Jarvis Johnson (though his last name had been known to the fandom thanks to series bible info from a fruit roll promotion years prior).
Skull plays with the "Space Rangers vs Psycho Rangers" chess set from PRiS' "Five of a Kind".
Available in North America on the "Best Of Power Rangers: The Ultimate Rangers" DVD.
As originally planned, the plot was not about Machine Generals finding Serpentera, but robed alien priests attempting to resurrect Dark Specter; A Ten Zord battle was in the early planning stages, but never made it to script; and the original shooting script revealed Kimberly to be married to Skull.
Features the first time Jason (Austin St. John) morphs as the Mighty Morphin Red Ranger since "The Power Transfer (1) in 1994 (or "Opposites Attract" that same year not counting stock footage). Also Tommy's (Jason David Frank) first morph as the Red Zeo Ranger since 1996's "Good as Gold and TJ's first Red Turbo Ranger morph since 1997's "Chase into Space (1)".
The Red Alien Ranger is the only one not to have his Morphing Sequence shown. He stays morphed the entire episode, and is also the only Ranger to not be played by his original actor in some manner.
Danny Slavin (Leo) filmed his Mirinoi scenes in "Forever Red" separately from the other actors, he was digitally inserted into several group shots when de-morphed, and only his back was shown at the episode's climax. He had intially decided not to participate in the episode due to a previous falling out with the production crew.
The Machine Empire Generals were recycled suits from Saban's Big Bad Beetleborgs/Beetleborgs Metallix: Venjix (Shadow Borg); Gerrok (Green Hunter Borg); Tezzla (Lady Borg); Steelon (Dragon Borg); and Automon (Fire Borg's head on Lightning Borg's body).
Features the Red Rangers of MIGHTY MORPHIN' POWER RANGERS" (season one), "MIGHTY MORPHIN' ALIEN RANGERS", "POWER RANGERS ZEO", "POWER RANGERS TURBO" (second half), "POWER RANGERS IN SPACE", "POWER RANGERS LOST GALAXY", "POWER RANGERS LIGHTSPEED RESCUE", "POWER RANGERS TIME FORCE" (its Quantum Ranger, as well), and, of course, "POWER RANGERS WILD FORCE".
Tommy's "Aww Man! That is one ugly Zord!" line was a reference to the fan film Scorpion Rain, which episode writer and season story editor Amit Bhaumik was involved with. That line was uttered (by Amit as Tommy) in a similar situation. A few backstory elements in this episode, such as Zedd "leaving" Serpentera on the moon and the Zeo Rangers having a previously unseen final battle with the Machine Empire, were also subtle nods to it (the fan film has never been made public, due to never being finished, though these events are not impossible to reconcile with what little was known onscreen concerning those gaps in PR history).
Wes refers to Tommy having a "fan club", which is a reference to his actor Jason David Frank, who does indeed have one.
The scene of the eight Red Rangers marching toward the camera at the NASADA hangar, in slow motion, with triumphant music, just before they go into space, is a reference to the astronaut movie, The Right Stuff.
