Episode Summary

EDIT

Accidentally freed from 5000 year long imprisonment, a band of Demons, led by a creature named Diabolico, return to the city of Mariner Bay, built upon the ground they once called their homeland. They seek to revive their ruler, Queen Bansheera, and plot wipe out the humans to reclaim their rightful property. Prepared for their return, a secret government agency known as Lightspeed recruits a team of five young adults, each an expert in a specific field (a firefighter, a stunt pilot, an extreme sports enthusiast, a diver, and a nurse in training), to become the team of Power Rangers to rescue Mariner Bay from this menace.

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The Rangers just pick up their Rescue Morphers randomly, with nothing on each one to determine who gets what color.

      • Dana, despite having the files for each of the Rangers, and knowing fully well there are five Rangers on this team, is completely oblivious when Captain Mitchell makes her Pink. Or maybe she's just pretending to be stupid!

    • QUOTES (2)

    • NOTES (10)

      • This is the only season, to date, that shows the full names of the Rangers in the credits. The only exception to this rule is Dr. Tommy Oliver, in Power Rangers Dino Thunder.

      • The Ghouligan monster is a partially black repaint of Psycho Red's Monster Form, first seen in PRiS' "Silence is Golden".

      • The desert ruins, later called the Tomb of Forever, will return in "The Cobra Strikes".

      • First appearances of the Lightspeed Aquabase, the Rescue Morphers (as well as the Lightspeed Rescue Ranger powers), the Lightspeed Rover, and the Rescue Blasters. Debut of Diabolico, Vypra, Loki, the Batlings, and the Skull Cavern.

      • Available in North America on the "Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue" VHS.

      • After a lengthy absense, Power Rangers returned to GMTV with Lightspeed Resuce airings (the U.K is a year behind the United States) but was edited way too much and shown only on the occasional English holiday and vanishing before the season even concluded, this would occur again with several other seasons on GMTV

      • Miss Fairweather (Monica Louwerens) is on the opening credits, but does not appear in this episode.

      • This is the first season of Power Rangers to not feature any regularly returning cast members; Paul Schrier (Bulk) was the last to go last season. For the first time also, an Alpha robot is never present.

      • This marks the first time in Power Ranger history that the Ranger powers were man-made. Similarly, this is the first human Ranger team to never keep their identities a secret from the public.

      • POWER RANGERS LIGHTSPEED RESCUE begins with this episode.
