  • First season that had new characters and new villains.

    8.8
    I got to say that this was kinda like the Mighty Morphin Power Ranger except this was a darker version. The villains here were good because they were menacing. Also this episode showed that the Quasar Saber chooses the Power Ranger and not by a person to person who chooses them. This episode showed the Rangers will face tougher situation and the risk along the way is higher. The characters is now more serious and the villains here are more evil than any other Power Rangers Series. Plus this series has added more drama and the action between the Power Ranger and the villains have advanced.moreless
  • New Mature direction. Writing becomes more geared towards adults and the stakes are much higher than they've ever been before.

    After the initial campiness of season 1, it was refreshing to see that things got more serious in the first half of season 2 before reverting to a more goofy, comedic kind of show. The seriousness picked up again in season 4 and this time stayed throughout the entire season. Things mellowed out in season 5 although there were a couple of times when the situation got really dicey for the Power Rangers. Although the action took a backseat to the writing in season 6, the series tone matured as the villains got more complex and not everything was as black and white as it used to be. The start of season 7 however, showed Power Rangers storywriters at the top of their game. Not only were the villains more complex than ever,

    not only were the stakes and the dangers much higher, but the actions that both the heroes and the villains did were that much greater. The new villains of Trakeena and company were no longer the kind of villains that would toy around with their opponets the Power Rangers. And many of the villains didn't hesitate to use force against the innocent. Bottom line: the villains would've certainly destroyed anything providing if the forces of good didn't stand up to them. Because of all of the conflict and turmoil going on in this season of the Power Rangers, it is (in my opinion) by far the most realistic season of Power Rangers ever seen on television ever!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • The Rangers' morphers this season are called Transmorphers. This was the original name for the MMPR Power Morphers in the unaired "Day of the Dumpster" pilot episode.

    • When the Quasar Sabers are glowing (when the Rangers are about to receive their powers) there is a brief shot of the PINK Quasar Saber, but it is glowing YELLOW.

    • When Yellow Ranger is in the tree, the stunt rope is visible.

    • Umm, why didn't Kai and Damon (or at least Alpha) attack the evil aliens with the Astro Megaship? They would have had a clear advantage and possibly could've intimidated the evil aliens away. At the very least, they should've taken some Astro Blasters (considering it was a museum, there had to be some on board) or at least SOME king of weapon.

    • INCORRECTLY REGARDED AS A GOOF: Damon seems to know Mike's name without being told it. Kai gets to the Megaship quickly without using a shuttle to Earth. According to the script (and evidence onscreen), the Astro Megaship Museum was on Terra Venture (possibly as a secret weapon in case the colony ran into any hostile aliens, the five Astro Morphers could be given to five new heroes). Hence why the flyer for the museum lacked a location, and was lying on the floor of a TV-stationed helicraft. For those coming aboard the colony wanting to know about the galaxy they're about to venture through, the museum's info would be just the ticket.
