  • The evil Borrdwings brings former Dino Thunder Rangers Conner, Ethan and Kira to the future, where they meet up with the S.P.D Rangers.

    9.5
    Okay, I liked the premise of this episode, with the former rangers of the previous season being sent to the future, but I was highly ticked off that Trent and Dr. Oliver barely had had any screen time, which somewhat ruined it for me. It was a good episode, but it could have been better.
  • I Really Liked It When Conner,Kira, And Ethan Used Their Own Dino-Based Powers On The Krybots. You Know, With Conners Super Speed, Kiras Ptera Scream, And Ethans Tricera-Armored Fists. Plus, I Especially Liked It When The S.P.D.\\\'s S.W.A.moreless

    I Really Liked It When Conner,Kira, And Ethan Used Their Own Dino-Based Powers On The Krybots. You Know, With Conners Super Speed, Kiras Ptera Scream, And Ethans Tricera-Armored Fists



    Plus, I Especially Liked It When The S.P.D.s S.W.A.T. Teamed Up With DinoThunders Super Dino Mode. It Was So Totally Classic!!!!!!!!
  • Dino Thunder/SPD Team-up episode.

    10
    Broodwing obtains the Red, Blue, & Yellow Dino Gems from the planet Onyx and with the help of Professor Cerebros brings Conner, Kira, & Ethan the three main Dino Thunder Rangers to the future while on their way to their high school reunion. Broodwing tries to get them to help him destroy the world but they grab their Dino Gems and run. After fighting off some Krybots the B-Squad arrives and drives Broodwing away. They bring the Dino Rangers to SPD Command Center and explain to them about Grumm & Broodwing. A Dragoul appears in the quarry and B-Squad goes to check it out. Dragoul flees but then hundreds of Krybots, Blueheads, & Orangeheads attack. Cruger goes to help the rangers while Omega Ranger goes into the city to fight the giant Dragoul that has appeared. The B-Squad & Cruger are getting beaten badly and then things go from Bad to worse when Grumm and Morgana show up to join in the fight. Kat regenerates the Dino Morphers and the Dino Rangers go to help the SPD Rangers. Together the two teams beat the robotic army and the B-Squad help Sam destroy the Dragoul. With their Z-Rex Blaster the Dino Rangers send Grumm packing. Kat then send the Dino Rangers back to 2005 with no memories what so ever. Then Conner goes on to start soccer camps for kids all of the country, Ethan goes to Reefside Tech and develops software which SPD eventually uses, and Kira goes on to become a great signer who Sydney grows up listening too and admiring. Back in 2025 Broodwing says that the rangers may have destroyed the first Dragoul but another one is waiting to defeat them.



    Some of my favorite Quotes:



    Ethan: I’m not complaining but our Command Center was a cave.



    Sydney: Sorry, but I don’t date older guys.

    Jack: Ohhhh!



    Cruger: Get Off My Truck!



    Sydney: No offense but fighting dinosaurs is so old.

    Ethan: Weren’t you guys taught to respect your elders!

  • Don't get me wrong, I mean it's good to see Conner, Ethan and Kira again but other then that, the teamup was ok but, it wasn't bad. Although Kira at the end asked if Tommy was there or not. As for Trent, he wasn't there other than the clips.moreless

    7.0
    About an year after Conner, Ethan, and Kira, retire as rangers, they were trasferred to the future thanks to Broodwig and Professor Cerbos who agree to work together. Anyway, He wanted the Dino Rangers to take over the world but they refussed. Meanwhile at SPD Headquaters, after Kat recived an ranger energy, the SPD Rangers (thinking that the A squad made it back alive) rushes to the scene. However, it was just Conner, Kira, and Ethan. They meet and the SPD Rangers get an recap on the Dino Rangers past. Meanwhile Grumm and Morgana prepare to invade earth but they seem to win over the 6 SPD Rangers. Dispite Crugger telling the Dino Rangers they can't help, with Kat's help the Dino Rangers help out anyway and saved the day. As for Sam, he had his hand full with the Dragol. Eventually the 5 original SPD Rangers help him out. As Conner, Ethan and Kira leave, they learn about their sucess. Anyway they return to Reefside High when Kira asked if Tommy was still there or not. Overall, the epiode wasn't bad but they could have done better besides we still have one more SPD/Dino Thunder teamup left to go, and lets just hope that it's better then this.



    Final score: an 7 out of 10.moreless
  • A lot better than Wormhole was!

    8.5
    Show opens with the DinoThunder rangers being transported by Broodwing and then quickly escaping to join SPD who find out they are from the future.



    Only disappointing part of this episode was that no further explanation was given as to why Broodwing brought them to the future, he just sorta brought them, lost them and gave up trying to find them.



    Of course the team ups are always fun to watch, this one was a lot better than Wormhole, which lacked in story and defaced Jason David Frank by having some other person do his voiceover.



    Overall, a nice, fun episode. I can't wait for the final episodes of SPD.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (7)

    • The end credits incorrectly list Conner's name as "Connor"(sic).

    • Kira and Conner claim the B-Squad can't be the Power Rangers because THEY are, yet they've just heard Broodwing tell them "welcome to the future", and they've MET other Ranger teams. They've watched Tommy's diary, they know other Rangers still exist. And considering they come from 2005, after they beat Mesogog, lost their powers and retired a year ago, they wouldn't consider themselves Rangers so easily.

    • Conner, Ethan and Kira attend, in the year 2005, a reunion of the graduating class of Reefside High 2004. Exactly what's the point of a one-year high school reunion?

    • Ethan and Kira need everything about SPD explained to them, despite having learned about SPD and the Troobians in "The Hidden Episode" (which may or may not be canon any longer, since it wasn't written by any of the regular writing staff).

    • When facing the several dozen Krybots of various heads, Doggie claims he's never encountered so many troops before. Yet, he took on a hundred Krybots in "Shadow (2)", and was knee-deep in a sea of Troobian forces during the fall of his home planet, Sirius.

    • The DinoThunder Rangers regain their braclets for their Dino Gems, without any explaination as to how they reappeared. Especially odd is the Dino Morphers have to be "pulled from the archives" and "recharged", despite how they come with the bracelets and only run off Gem power (the Gems were already restored in the first scene).

    • Jack's badge info listed his Dekaranger weapon names

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Kat: Good-bye, Dino Rangers. Your memory of us will be erased, but we won't forget you.

    • Jack: Look's like Gruumm's bot factory has been working overtime.

    • Gruumm: Cruger, using Rangers from the past may have won this battle, but I have a surprise of my own in store.

    • Kat: I'm detecting an alternate Ranger energy in downtown.
      Bridge: But we're not downtown. I mean, I'm not downtown. I don't think I am.
      Z: Don't look at me! I'm all here.

    • Commander Cruger: Welcome to our base, Rangers.
      Kira: But he's a dog...sort of.
      Bridge: Pets as authority figures -- you get used to it.

    • Commander Cruger: I'm sure Broodwing went to a lot of expense to bring you here. He'll won't give up on you so easily.
      Conner: We'll take him on and anyone else who gives us trouble.
      Z: You haven't met Broodwing's boss. Gruumm is as nasty as they get.
      Kira: Well I say, bring it on. We're Rangers. We can deal with it.
      Sky: Correction -- you were Rangers. We've been especially trained to take on Gruumm's army.
      Syd: And no offense, but fighting dinosaurs is so over.
      Ethan: Weren't your guys taught to respect your elders?

    • Ethan: So when can we expect to hear your first big single?
      Kira: Oh, I'm already over the radios. Singing a cat-litter jingle.

    • [surrounded by Krybots]
      Conner: Any thoughts on what these things are?
      Kira: They're not Tyrannodrones, but they're definitely up there in the creepy department.
      Conner: Any ideas on how to get out of this?
      Ethan: I'm still trying to figure out how we got into this.

    • Broodwing: Fools! Do you think you could get away from me that easily?
      Ethan: We've run away from a lot worse than you, buddy. [realizing what he said] Ooh, that didn't come out right at all.
      Kira: Who are you? What do you want with us?
      Broodwing: Your powers are legendary throughout the galaxy. Fight alongside me, and we'll bring down this wretched planet.
      Conner: Maybe your suffering from a lack of oxygen from being in that punch bowl too long. But in case you didn't notice, we're the good guys.

    • Jack: We're Power Rangers. Space Patrol Delta.
      Kira: Wait a minute, you can't be the Power Rangers.
      Z: Why not?
      Conner: Because we are.
      [the three show their Dino Gem bracelets]

    • [watching the DinoThunder Rangers' past on the viewscreen]
      Kat: The archives show the Dino Thunder team have faced off against some of the most treacherous villains in all of history.
      Conner: Ah, memories.
      Jack: But that was years ago.

    • Gruumm: I couldn't let my soldiers have all the fun.
      Morgana: We want to play too.
      Commander Cruger: Let's play.
      Gruumm: Cruger, you and your precious S.P.D. have stood in my way long enough. It ends now! [he blasts at the Rangers with his staff]

    • Gruumm: At last, no more Power Rangers.
      [Conner, Kira and Ethan arrive]
      Gruumm: Huh?
      Conner: Think again, bonehead.

    • Conner: It's obvious we should stay. We work great together.
      Syd: Nice try. But I don't date older guys.
      Jack: Ooh!

  • NOTES (14)

    • Last appearance of Jack's Battlizer in any mode until "Wormhole".

    • This is the first teamup to not involve a villain from a past PR incarnation.

    • Aside from flashback footage on the SPD monitors, Trent is not seen nor mentioned. Similarly, Dr. Tommy Oliver is briefly mentioned, but not seen.

    • This episode takes place from a DinoThunder standpoint post "Thunder Struck (2)", and relates the eventual fates of the main three Rangers: After a rough start, Conner opens up a series of soccer camps to help kids. Ethan attends Reefside Tech, and eventually designs software so important it's still being used in SPD's computers. Kira, having left for New York to pursue a singing career, first doing commercial jingles, eventually becomes a big singing star Syd grows up admiring.

    • Morgana's battle suit and Gruumm's battle bike make their return (and final) appearances.

    • Kat becomes aware of the DTs by a spike in the Morphing Grid, the Power Ranger power "source" first referred to during the days of MMPR, and last mentioned in PRDT's "Strange Relations".

    • Broodwing mentions attaining the Dino Gems on the planet Onyx, the monster mingling world from PRiS' "Flashes of Darkonda" and PRLG's "Heir to the Throne" & "Protect The Quasar Saber" (its first mention since then, despite its CGI exterior shots being reused several times this season).

    • First time the Red SPD Battlizer's Cyber Mode has appeared without Sonic Mode.

    • First time the S.W.A.T. Command Truck has been used by non-SWAT Rangers (this being Shadow Ranger).

    • First time Shadow Ranger has morphed alongside the rest of the SPD team.

    • First team-up to involve both extended sentai footage and Megazords since "Trakeena's Revenge (2)".

    • This episode's plotlines lead directly into "Impact", which debuted more than two and a half weeks prior to the debut of this episode.

    • Debuted on Toon Disney, at a special day and time of Tuesday at 9:30pm E&P, following a "Strength in Numbers" team-up marathon. ABC Family debut date: Sunday, October 16, 2005 at a special time of 10:30am E&P.

    • "Power Rangers S.P.D." meets "Power Rangers DinoThunder". Their second meeting will come later on, in the ('debuted' on DVD) episode "Wormhole".

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Cruger: Get off my truck!
      A little homage to Harrison Ford's "Get off my plane!" line from Air Force One.

    • The SPD Command Center console's center piece lifts up with the Dino Gems inside it. The shape of the console, as well as this rising center piece, are designed almost exactly like the TARDIS console from the original BBC sci-fi series, Doctor Who.
