Part I, By Crusader Vega
Light years from our planet that we call Earth, in the vast andromeda galaxy, is the planet of Kitann. The inhabitants of this world are not much different from you and I, that is except one. One individual is isolated from the rest of the world. He lives in the ancient shrine to Lady Borealis, a specter who sees all time, and uses her gift for good. Our story begins on one day when this individual, whose name will be kept a secret for now, is standing in front of Lady Borealis' crystal container talking with the being.
Figure: My lady, I sense a disruption in the space/time continuum.
Borealis: Yes. I have felt it as well. It is hard to explain, but the disturbance is not from anywhere in our universe.
Figure: Where then?
Borealis: It is emanating from our planet, but our planet in a different dimension. There is a great evil attacking our world. It wants to destroy the universe, and all other universes as well.
Figure: My lady, is there anything we can do?
Borealis: There is a way. You have appeared to the Power Rangers of Earth before. They have the Dream Key.
Figure: I don't understand.
Borealis: The Dream Key is not only a bridge between the world of humans and the world of fantasy, it also a link, a gateway, between all dimensions. You must appear to the rangers again in your transparent form as you have before. You must tell them to use the Dream Key to reach the paradise dimension of Austoros.
Figure: Why there?
Borealis: All will be revealed in time. Hurry. This disruption causes all beings locked in time warps, like myself, to grow ill. I can sense Zordon of Eltar growing deathly ill as we speak. Now, go. Please hurry.
The light from the crystal fades away, leaving the figure standing there in the shadows. The figure raises a hand to the crystal, revealing a golden, ranger-like glove.
Figure: I won't let you down, my lady. I won't let you down.
Let us now go to Earth. On the shores of the great Atlantic Ocean is the city of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. In one of the many parks, there are two figures seated on a park bench. The two people are talking with each other about familiar subjects.
Theresa: Keith, I don't know if I can carry on without you.
Keith: Does protecting the world from evil mean so little to you?
Theresa: Saving the world is no small feat, but it hurts me to see you so alone.
Keith takes Theresa's hand in his.
Keith: A man who has friends like you is never alone.
Theresa: Keith, I just don't want to hurt you.
Keith: Theresa, nothing you can say or do can ever hurt me. I've never felt so alive in my entire life. The Brown Crystal really made me appreciate life a lot more. I really care about you. I want what's best for you. And right now, you need to be a ranger. Don't worry about me. I'll be fine.
Theresa: Whatever you say. My feelings for you will never change.
Their faces lean toward each other, quickly closing the distance between the two. Before their lips can meet, a strange humming is heard from the fountain in front of them.
Keith: Oh, not this again!
Instead of one of Zedd's monsters facing them, a transparent golden figure is seen standing in the fountain. It is the same figure that was described before.
Theresa: What in the world…?
Figure: Rangers, I need your help.
Keith: Who are you?
Figure: I cannot tell you that at present. There is a disturbance in the fabric of the space time continuum. If this tear continues to grow, our universe will be destroyed, as well as all other universes.
Theresa: So, why do you need us?
Figure: The only way to stop the tear is to travel to the paradise dimension Austoros. I searched your planet. You are the only two who can survive the trip.
Keith: But I'm not a ranger anymore.
Figure: I am aware of that. I sent you to your Command Center to receive the Dream Key. I see, too, that you have bestowed it to your friend here. The magic I used to search your planet will not fail. Ranger or not, you must come and help me. Please. I ask you as a fellow ranger.
Theresa: We'll go in a heartbeat. What do we have to do?
Figure: Use the Dream Key. The Dream Key can take you both to Austoros.
A white flash of light forms the Dream Key in Theresa's hand.
Theresa: Keith, are you sure you want to do this?
Keith: You don't see me running away, do you?
Theresa: Okay, then. Here goes. Dream Key, provide us both safe passage to the plane of Austoros.
The Dream Key leaves Theresa's hand and opens a dimensional gateway above the park bench. In a second the two teens are sent flying through a tunnel of negative space. The air around them swirls violently, creating a monstrous vortex. The two teens hold tightly to each other for dear life. In a flash, the Dream Key is returned to Theresa's hand as the two teens set foot on the ground of Austoros.
Part II, By Lamont Stewart
Lamont did not find the Dodo bird on the first planet he went to, so he reactivated the vortex, and went in it. He was traveling to the next dimension, when he was stopped in the middle of the wormhole. He said, "What's happening here?"
That is when he heard a voice, which said, "You have been chosen for a special assignment."
Lamont said, "Huh, what?"
The voice said, "We have been monitoring you and some others for quite some time now. We monitor anybody who has access to power. We first noticed you when you activated the Dragonzord Power Coin a while ago."
Lamont said, "I'm glad that you think I can help, but I have a mission to complete."
The voice said, "You will get back in plenty of time to stop the aliens, and find the Dodo to give them. However, all you have gone through so far, starting with the coin's activation has been a test. Your work with the Lightstar Rangers, and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers were preparation. Not to mention your leadership of the L-team now, and branch of the Railroaders."
Lamont said, "So everything I have gone through has been training for this thing I'm about to do?"
The voice said, "Yes, and in fact, this will be training for some future events in your life. You have been through a great deal. You're not even in your own time period, and you can't return to your time until 1996. Not to mention you're a nineteen year old trapped in your thirteen year old body."
Lamont said, "I'm glad you think that I could be helpful, but I'm sure that there are others better for this job then I am."
The voice said, "Oh, there are. We have chosen others for this mission too. You were our last choice."
Lamont said to himself, "I was picked last. Oh man, not again."
The voice said, "Just because you were picked last, doesn't mean that you won't be important to this mission. In fact, you are one of the smartest of the people we picked for the mission. We have picked these people because each of them will provide something to it. No one person is that much powerful then the others. This will test your Courage, Power, and Wisdom. Not to mention test theirs too."
Lamont said, "I will get back to my own Earth in time to stop it from destruction right?"
The voice said, "Yes, your time, will be going more slowly until this mission is over. However, first you must go through one more test."
Lamont suddenly appeared on a planet, and in front of him was the first monster he ever faced. The monster said, "I am Reversaeonator, and revenge will be mine. I will reverse you back into a sperm and an egg."
Lamont said, "First you will have to catch me, pal. It's L-team time!" He held his ring in the air and said, "Knight!"
He transformed into his L-team Ranger outfit, and started to battle Reversaeonator. After a five-minute battle, he pulled out his sword, and sliced the monster in half.
Lamont demorphed back to his normal self, when the strange voice returned and said, "Excellent, I knew you were smart. You are now ready for our mission. Step into the vortex."
A vortex opened, and Lamont stepped inside, not knowing what was in store for him.
Part III, By Andre Coles
Blade's Quarters – Space Station
Blade is asleep in his bed as he hears a strange voice.
Blade/Parallax (Groggy): Kat?
The Seeker appears.
Seeker: No such luck, sir.
Blade pops up and pulls a gun.
Blade/Parallax: Who the hell are you?
Seeker: I am the Seeker, guardian and keeper of the Axis of Time.
Blade/Parallax: So, what does that have to do with me shooting you right now?
Seeker telekinetically lifts the gun from Blade's hand.
Seeker: Listen, mighty Parallax! I sense that all reality is in great danger.
Blade/Parallax: Okay I'm listening. How do I stop this danger?
Seeker: Stop this you shall, but you can't stop it alone But an Emerald Knight will be needed for this mission.
Blade/Parallax: A Green Lantern.
Seeker: Precisely, build a ship, a strong one, and take it into space and I will do the rest.
Blade/Parallax: I will help.
Seeker: But be warned, great Parallax, you may not be whole upon your return.
Space Station Meeting Room – Space – Months Later
The Galaxy League is preparing for the maiden voyage of the Strarjammer.
Blade/Parallax: This is a proud day for the Galaxy League, as we prepare for the launch of the Starjammer. This ship is the first of many joint projects between the United Earth Defense Force and the Ranger Teams.
He shows the scematics and pictures of the ships.
Blade/Parallax: This combines Zord technology with Robotechnology. We hope to get the efficiency and precision of the Veritechs and Mechs and the spiritual aspect of Zord technology.
The hatch opens to reveal the ship.
Blade/Parallax: This member of the Green Lantern Corps and I have been selected for this test flight. We're just gonna take a trip around the block and be back soon enough. The scientist team will examine the scematics from our flight upon our return.
Blade and Ramses proceed towards the ship and they go inside.
Starjammer – Space Station Hangar
Blade and Ramses are at the controls ready to begin their flight.
Blade/Parallax: Beginning flight sequence.
Blade/Parallax: Ignition….and launch.
The ship launches.
Blade/Parallax: Ramses, there's something that I need to tell you.
Ramses: What about, sir?
Time has passed and Blade has told Ramses about the mission.
Ramses: You mean to tell me, you spent months on building a ship based on a dream you had. I would just like to say off the record, sir, that that is the stupidest thing I've ever…
Blade points outside the window and they both see the Nexus.
Ramses (stunned): …heard.
Blade: Let's go Ramses. We're going right into it.
Ramses: Are you nuts?
Blade: Trust me. Prepare for light speed!
They speed into the nexus. They are inside, and it's shaking the ship.
Ramses: We're shaking apart, sir! I don't know how much longer we can hold out!
Blade/Parallax: Use your ring! It should help!
He uses his ring to encase the ship in a Green Bubble.
Blade/Parallax: It seems to be working, but the ship is still shaking apart. I'll magnify the power of the ring.
He uses the Parallax Power Staff. He zaps Ramses ring and amplifies it's power. They get through the Nexus.
Austoros – Daytime
The ships lands on the surface of Austoros. The door opens, and they walk out.
Ramses: We're stuck here. How are we going to get home?
Blade/Parallax: We'll get home.
Ramses: What are we doing here, anyway?
Blade/Parallax: Saddle up, Cowboy. We're gonna save all reality.
Part IV, By B.L. Schroeder
Keith and Theresa steadied themselves. They looked around, and saw a beautiful scenery; flowers of all different colors decorating the area, blending well with the magnificent forest green of the grass and trees.
"So, what do we do now?" Keith said.
"Try to find any sign of the tear's origin.Velociraptor!" Theresa cried. She morphed into her White Ranger uniform. The pair cautiously began to eplore the area.
Lamont set foot on the surface of Austoros. "Whoa! this is awesome!" Lamont commented to himself, as he was mesmorized by the scenery. Suddenly, he saw a large portal open above a nearby clearing. "What's that?!" he cried as a large space ship came through the portal. Lamont ran behind a large stone nearby, and watched as the space ship landed. A section of the space ship opened, and two figured stepped out. Lamont could here their voices, but not quite make out what they were saying. They looked somewhat like rangers, and they were most likely some of the others that had been chosen for the mission.
"Hey!" Lamont yelled, as he came out from behind the stone.
Blade, in his Parallax uniform, saw Lamont, and blasted at him, not knowing that there were others on this mission besides himself and Ramses.
"Wh–wh–What the hell?!" Lamont cried, as he jumped out of the way of the blast, and back behind the stone. "Oh, okay. So that's the bad dudes, eh? Well, then. They'll be getting a little taste of my medicine. It's L-team time!" Lamont raised his ring to the air. "Knight!" Lamont cried, as he changed into him L-team persona.
"Blade, if you've dragged me into something we can't handle–" Ramses began.
"Okay, Ramses. I understand. But, this Seeker guy obviously thinks we can handle this, and, judging how he's the guardian of the Axis of Time, I'd give him an edge. Listen, go fly over and grab the guy I blasted at. Maybe we can get something out of him."
"Allright," Ramses sighed, and flew off.
"Here comes that green dude. Oh, man, why can't I fly?" Lamont commented, watching Ramses fly over. Suddenly, he felt something clamp on to his leg. He looked up in time to see green, translucent leg irons lift him off the ground by his legs and carry him over to the heavily-armored man near the space ship. He hung upside-down by the leg irons.
"Who do you work for?" Blade asked him.
"What? I don't work for anybody!" Lamont cried.
"Listen, you alien scum! I'm taking you down, whether you tell me what I want to know or not. So, you might as well tell me," Blade said. Ramses landed beside him.
"I don't know what you're talking about! I'm Lamont Stewart, from Earth! Look, I'm human!" Lamont cried, as he demorphed.
"That doesn't mean you're on the good side! Tell me, now!" Blade cried, grabbing Lamont's collar. Lamont gulped.
"Listen! I was brought here to FIGHT the bad guys! Not be one!" Lamont cried, finally realizing that these guys were on his side, however twisted they seemed to him.
"Listen, Blade. I know that you're here on a mission, but I think that this guy is on our side. He might know more than you about all this. Besides, he's just a kid," Ramses said. Lamont looked at him squarely.
"Release him," Blade ordered. The leg irons disappeared, and Lamont fell to the ground. "What do you know?"
"Well, I know that we're here….AS A TEAM," Lamont boldly stated. "That's pretty much all I know."
"Okay. Sorry about the blast. I'm trying to be cautious. This is Ramses, a Green Lantern, and I'm Parallax, leader of the mighty Galaxy League of Power." Blade put his hand, offering it to Lamont. Lamont took hold of it, and wearily stood up.
"What's the Galaxy League of Power?" Lamont asked.
"It's the super power of warriors of good in our universe," Ramses explained.
"Well, let me fill you in on what I know. Somehow, all reality is in some kind of danger, and we're supposed to stop it," Blade informed Lamont.
"Are there any others besides you?" Ramses asked Lamont.
"Not with me, no," Lamont said.
"So, a team of three is supposed to defeat a threat to all reailty?" Ramses asked.
Meanwhile, Keith and Theresa were traveling through a wooded area, and still hadn't found anything. Suddenly, a black figure jumped out in front of them. He held a rifle-like weapon in front of him.
"Who are you?" the figure asked, menacingly.
"We are the Power Rangers," Theresa explained, cautiously backing up, ready to draw her weapon at a moment's notice. "Who are you?" she asked, suspiciously.
The figure lowered his weapon. "I am Zika, the second generation Magna Defender. I am sorry, but I know little of this world. I was not sure whether you were friends or enemies. I had to be sure."
"It's allright. We understand. Are there others here?" Keith asked.
"I have surveiled a group of three across the ridge. I believe that they are on the side of good," Zika told them, pointing to the area where the group he talked about were at.
"Then let's go and meet them. We don't know how much time we have," Keith said, and began to walk in the direction Zika had pointed to. The others followed.
Meanwhile, Blade, Lamont, and Ramses stood just outside the Starjammer, under its shade.
"…Well, it'd probably help if we knew what was going on before we tried making a plan," Lamont explained.
"But, we still need to–" Blade stopped when he saw three figures come over the to the north. "Ramses, check them out."
"Yes, sir," Ramses said. He flew off to investigate. He noticed that one wore a ranger uniform, and came down in front of them. "Hello. I'm Ramses. You are a ranger?"
"Yes," Theresa told him.
"And you?…The Magna Defender!" Ramses remembered him from legends he had learned as a child.
"Yes. You know of me?" Zika asked Ramses, surprised.
"Yes! You were one of the greatest warriors ever! That is, in my dimension," Ramses explained.
"Well, then, I am not alone in the multiverse. Where are your comrades?" Zika asked.
"Near our ship, the Starjammer, over there." Ramses pointed to the Starjammer. "Here, let me take you." Ramses created a bubble around the three and carried them with him as he flew to Lamont and Blade. He landed, and placed them beside him. The bubble dissipated. "Parallax, these are fellow warriors for our cause."
"Good. I am Parallax, leader of the Galaxy League of Power, the superpower of good in my universe," Blade introduced himself.
"I'm Lamont Stewart, former Green Ranger, current L-team leader, a super-hero group in my universe," Lamont introduced himself.
"Keith, former Brown Ranger."
"Theresa, White Ranger."
"I am Zika, second generation Magna Defender," Zika introduced himself.
"Well, then, we were just talking about…." Lamont began, but stopped when he felt a sudden rumble under his feet. Suddenly, to the west, a large army of horse-riding, armor-clad warriors came riding over the horizon. To the east, a massive robotic army marched forward. The two groups halted, awaiting for the other to make the first move. The group of six heroes stood in the center of it all, waiting to see what happened next.
Part V, By Crusader Vega
The armies surrounded the rangers on all sides. With no escape eminent, Blade/Parallax turns to the others.
Blade/Parallax: Okay, people. We're going to have a fight here. Is everyone ready to kick some alien butt?!
Zika: Ready and waiting!
Lamont: Let's go!
Theresa: Now it gets interesting!
Keith: Uh, I seem to be a little misplaced here. I don't have my ranger powers anymore.
Blade/Parallax: That's right. Wait! Ramses, can your ring duplicate itself?
Blade/Parallax: Take Keith into the Starjammer and give him a Green Lantern ring.
Ramses: Okay, but will it work with someone from a different dimension?
Keith: Let's not take too long to find out!
The army of robots begins to march down the hills toward the ship. Ramses opens the door to the ship and he and Keith step inside, the door closing behind them safely.
Ramses: This will take just a second.
Ramses puts his ring hand into the other and brings them to his forehead. A green surge of light protrudes from his open palm. When the light fades, a green ring, an exact copy of Ramses', is seen in Ramses' cupped hand.
Ramses: This ring will turn you into a Green Lantern. It is very powerful. It can create plasma-based objects from your imagination and will. However, it is ineffective against the color yellow.
Keith: Cool. How does it work?
Ramses: It works telepathically with your mind. It will take a while to fully get used to it.
Keith: Well, let's get started. There's no time to waste!
Ramses places the ring in Keith's hand. Keith slowly puts on his ring finger. A green glow surrounds Keith's body, and the ring's symbol glows brightly.
Ramses: I've never seen this before.
Keith: What's going on?
Ramses: You're from a different dimension. The ring is analysing your body structure and chemistry in order to function properly. I don't think it will harm you.
Keith: So what do I do now?
Ramses: Try to create a suit. You need some form of disguise.
Keith closes his eyes and clenches his fist tighly.
Suddenly, the lantern symbol on Keith's ring releases a bright green light flash. Keith is seen clothed in a green suit, following the pattern of the rangers of his dimension, adorned in the center diamond with the Green Lantern symbol.
Ramses: Well done.
Keith: It's cool, but does it have to be green?
Ramses: Is that a problem?
Keith: No. I'm just used to seeing brown.
Ramses: It takes a while to get used to. We need to get back outside to see how the others are holding up.
Outside, the others have engaged the robotic warriors in battle. Theresa charges her spear and takes out thirty of them with one slice. Lamont slices wildly with his blade, destroying everything in his path. Zika is firing his gun, and Blade/Parallax is standing against the ship, waiting for his chance to fight. The hatch opens and Ramses and Keith join Blade/Parallax.
Ramses: Blade, what are you waiting for?
Blade/Parallax: These pathetic droids are not worthy of my combat. I am waiting for a real challenge.
Keith: I don't get it.
Blade/Parallax: I see the ring has worked. You two go ahead. I may join the battle shortly.
Ramses jumps into the midst of some unoccupied robots and drops a ten ton weight, crushing about 40 of them. Keith meets him.
Keith: How do you do that?
Ramses: Remember, the ring works telepathically. Concentrate.
Keith tightens his fist, then slaps ten robots to kingdom come with a blow from an enlargened hand.
Ramses: That's it.
Keith: This is going to be fun!
A group of robots descend on Theresa, surrounding her in a tight circle. The circle is sent hurtling away when Keith slugs them with a green baseball bat.
Keith: The very same.
Blade/Parallax: Okay, guys. Now it's my turn.
Blade/Parallax opens his hand and sends a red shock wave across the valley, annihilating everything in its path. Everything except the rangers. As the team observe the mangled metal and scattered transistors on the ground, a thought occurs to them all, this was only one of the armies. A laugh from the lead horseman of the other army atop the hill is heard.
Horseman: Ha! You think you've won? Those things were weak! We will not even have to come down there to take you!
The horseman fires a beam from his staff which encases them all in containment spheres.
Blade/Parallax: Don't worry. I'll get us out of this!
Blade pushes his hands against the circumference of his sphere, releasing electrical charges to try to shatter the six spheres. He struggles with all his might, but the spheres do not break.
Blade/Parallax: What's happening? I'm one of the most powerful beings in the universe!
Horseman: Ha! In your dimension, perhaps, but we are the inhabitants of Austoros. We can match any power working against us. Our Queen will be pleased to see our bounty. Ride for the castle, soldiers!
Part VI, By Andre Coles
Fields of Austoros – Daytime
As the six warrriors, Keith, Theresa, Zika, Lamont, Ramses, and Blade, are being carried to the castle in the energy spheres. Blade is thinking of a way to get out. he remembers that he can communicate with Ramses telepathically through his Green Lantern Ring. He begins to do so.
Blade/Parallax (Telepathically): Ramses, are you receiving me?
Ramses ring begins to glow. He puts it to his forehead.
Blade/Parallax (Telepathically): Ramses, can you hear me?
Ramses (Telepathically): Yes, sir. What's your plan? You do have a plan, right?
Blade/Parallax (Telepathically): Of course.
Keith's ring begins to glow. He immitates Ramses behavior and puts his ring to his froehead and hears them talking.
Keith (Telepathically): Hello.
Blade/Parallax (Telepathically): What? Keith? Oh yeah, you've got a ring now. Look, I'm able to telepathically talk to Ramses and you through your rings. Green Lanterns can also do that by themselves.
Keith (Telepathically): Cool. I heard the word "plan". You've got one, Blade?
Blade/Parallax (Telepathically): Yeah. I'm gonna try to break these spheres.
Ramses (Telepathically): But we can't. Don't you remember him saying that?
Blade/Parallax (Telepathically): He said we can't break our own spheres. But what about someone else's? A high frequency blast should do it.
Keith (Telepathically): Worth a try!
Blade/Parallax (Telepathically): Alright, Keith, I'm breaking you open first.
Blade zaps Keith's sphere and it breaks open.
Keith: I'm free!
He frees Blade.
Blade/Parallax: Sweet. Your turn, Zika.
He frees Zika.
Blade/Parallax: No problem. Get Lamont.
Zika blasts Lamont's sphere and Lamont gets out.
Lamont frees Theresa.
Theresa: What about Ramses?
Blade/Parallax: No sweat!
Blade shatters Ramses sphere.
Ramses: Took long enough.
Blade/Parallax: Let's get outta here!
The Mystic Soliders proceed to attack them.
Blade/Parallax: These guys obviously want a beatin.
Lamont: And hey, who are we to disappoint?
Blade/Parallax: Spread out. These guys look like they're gonna be tougher to beat then those mechanical misfits.
They spread out and begin to battle the Mystic Soilders and are overpowering them.
Lamont: These guys are a joke!
Blade/Parallax: My sentiments exactly.
Theresa: Those robo guys are coming back around!
Blade/Parallax: Well then, they can get some of this, too.
The Robotic Army begins to attack the Mystic army and the Ranger Team.
Ramses: How do you want to proceed?
Blade/Parallax: They're attacking all of us. So these Mystic Knight guys can't be all that bad. Theresa!
Blade/Parallax: Their leader is up on that mountain. We'll hold them off, you try and reason with him.
Theresa: What if he doesn't listen?
Blade/Parallax: Then knock him off the cliff.
She goes through some robots and some mystic warriors to get to the leader.
Horseman: What are you doing here?
Theresa: Listen to me! Those robots are attacking all of us! We need to join forces to defeat them.
Horseman: Join forces?!
Theresa: Together we can defeat them.
Horseman: Fine. For now.
They jump down from the cliff and begin to join the fight.
Keith: I think I'm getting the hang of this, Ramses.
Keith: Yeah! Watch this!
He forms a soccer ball with his ring and kicks it at the robots. When it hits the ground, it explodes.
The horseman begins to slice up many of the robots while Theresa is doing the same.
Blade/Parallax: Time to finish these guys off! PARALLAX POWER RUSH!
The Parallax Power Rush destroys the robotic army. They spot Tech, the general of the robotic army, getting away.
Lamont: This one's mine.
Blade grabs him by the shoulder.
Blade/Parallax: No. We've got other things to deal with.
Lamont pushes him to the ground.
Lamont: Who died and made you leader?
Lamont flies away.
Blade/Parallax: What was that all about?
Horseman: I'm afraid we are in the Field of Rage.
Keith: The Field of Rage?
Ramses: I've heard of it. When you set foot in it, it fills you with the rage of a million men, but I thought it was just a legend.
Horsemen: You're in Austoros, my friend. The birthplace of legends, the realm of fantasy.
Theresa: Well, why weren't we filled with rage?
Horsemen: Well, you were protected by my magical powers. The Green Lanterns here were protected by their rings. The armor of the Magna Defender served as his protection. And your powers protected you as well, Parallax.
Zika: Shouldn't his powers have protected him?
Horsemen: Yes, but the young ranger's mind is in great turmoil. He's a man inside a boy. And the frustration from that has begun to manifest itself.
Blade/Parallax: I know the feelin.
Horsemen: Forgive me for not introducing myself. I am Kaz. Master Warrior of the Austoros dimension and the General of her majesty's armies.
Blade/Parallax: Well, we are…
Kaz: I know who you are. You are the Warriors selected for our dire mission, that I can see now. We must go. There isn't much time.
Theresa: Shouldn't we get Lamont first?
Kaz: Yes, we should. Come.
They follow him.
Lamont flies after Tech and tackles him as he lands.
Lamont: Where do you think you're going?
Tech: I was planning a strategic retreat.
Lamont: Well, plan on a strategic defeat!
Tech: I really don't think so. But, if you wish to embrace death . . . !
They begin to fight. Tech gains the upper hand first and punches Lamont in the head. He goes to run him through, but Lamont grabs the sword and kicks him in the stomach.
Lamont: Are you gonna fight or do I finish you off right now?
Tech: I'm not done yet!
They fight again. Tech kicks Lamont to the ground. Lamont then kipps up and tornado kicks Tech, who comes back strong with a roundhouse right hand. Lamont struggles and gets up and is choked by Tech.
Tech: You pathetic weakling! As much as I would enjoy to strangle you to death, I have to get back to base. So I'll just finish you off right now!
Tech throws Lamont to the ground and raises his sword. As he is going to deal the final blow, he is blasted from a distance by Blade.
Blade/Parallax: Get the hell away from him!
Tech: I see you have some very powerful allies, I'll be seeing you again.
Keith: You okay?
Lamont: Yeah. I don't know what came over me.
Kaz: You fell prey to the Field of Rage. It's a good thing the spell is broken.
Blade/Parallax: I know. You were a little tough to handle for a little while there.
Lamont: It won't happen again.
Theresa: We know.
Kaz: Now we must proceed to the castle of Austoros. It will be a long journey.
Blade/Parallax: Don't worry about that; we've got the Starjammer.
Kaz: Very well then, let us go!
The Starjammer takes off and heads toward the castle.
Part VII, By The All Stars
They raced to the Starjammer, hoping that nothing else would go wrong. They all boarded the ship and set course for the east.
Horseman Leader: Set course for the Winged Palace, which is where my master awaits.
The team went to a special room where they talked.
Keith: How did we get here? I mean, I don't know about you, but . . .
Lamont: Yeah, I know what you mean. I was just a normal kid. Well, normal as anyone else.
Blade: I know what you mean.
Theresa: Well, I'm bored. I know! Why don't we tell each other how we got here?
Horseman Leader: Here, I have a special power. You can see the story play out as you tell it.
Blade: Cool, I'll go first.
Blade: My story . . . well, my story starts out more sorted than most of yours. See, I was a petty thug. I didn't have a home and had to steal what I needed to survive.
Outside 7-Eleven Nighttime
Officer: Allright, son. We're taking you downtown.
The officer shakes his head in pity at him ad stuffs him in the pattywagon.
Courthouse, the next day:
The judge is sentencing Blade.
Judge: Well, son, since this is your first offense, and with no home, I'm sending you to St. Mary's Orphanage. I hope you get your life back together. Court is adjourned.
They take Blade away.
Blade: I got adopted alright, by the Olivers. Fightin some putties one day, I saw a sword — a Golden Sword — which would make me the Gold Ranger. I was cloned and my clone became the Silver Ranger. While fighting on the planet Phadeos, I was taken my Mondo and Machina.
The Moon – Space
Blade is brought before King Mondo.
Mondo: So, this is our disruptive slave?
Machina: Yes. I've heard a lot about you, but I feel I don't know anything.
Sprocket: His name is Blade. He was the leader of Omega Rangers on Phaedos. He led the rangers on Earth, too.
Mondo: Well, well, well. It seems to me that I have the perfect warrior for my next mission.
Blade: Screw you! I'd never work for you!
Mondo: Oh, but you will! Let's see. Machina, hand me Zedd's old book of spells.
Machina hands it to him.
Mondo: Great. Here's the spell. Wind and water, storm and waves, make what is good my evil slave!
Blade is transformed into an evil slave.
Blade: If it wasn't for my friends, I would've been Mondo's slave forever. But, they broke the spell and I became Zeo Ranger 7, White. I was back on the team fighting evil on Earth but that would come to a whole new level.
Tommy: What are we gonna do?
Adam: We can't do anymore.
All their suits begin to glow.
Tommy: What's goin' on?
Adam: Our suits are glowing!
Rocky: I can't move.
Aisha: Neither can I!
Kat: It's like the power is being sucked out of me.
The suits turn into energy balls and they are drawn inside of Blade. He becomes Zeo.
Blade: Time to say good night!
Powerbot: What are you?
Blade zaps Powerbot with the Zeo staff and he explodes. The powers are returned to to the rangers. They are congratulating Blade.
Blade: I would become Zeo — the Zeo Ranger. When the other six could stand no more, their powers would be combined within me and I would beat up on the opposition. I even started dating my girlfriend, Kat. I took some time off when the Turbo Rangers came on the scene, but later returned when they needed me. But, in no way was I prepared for the Reckoning. I don't even wanna get into that. It was horrible, but we bounced back.
Blade: It seems like one year ago was like a century ago. Last year, we emerged victorious over the Evil Council. But, we had to rebuild. I'm happy to say that civilization is where it was 20 years before the Reckoning.
They all clap.
Blade: But the universe still has problems. That's why the Turbo Rangers, Zeo Rangers, and Lightstar Rangers, along with the Rangers of Aquitar and the Omega Rangers of Pheados, and even non-Ranger entites such as the Thundercats from Thundera and the U.E.D.F, have joined forces to become the Galaxy League of Power. A great force for good now and for generations to come. We will not let the Reckoning happen again.
Blade: We formed the Galaxy League of Power and kicked ass on a galactic scale, but a fatal injury by Lord Zedd literally killed me. But my girlfriend Kat brought me back to life. And gave me immortality. I thought my humanity was gone so I became cold.
Colt: How could a human being do such a thing?
Blade: I'm not human, Colt.
Blade creates a helmet and puts it on.
Blade: Not anymore.
Blade: Zordon had to drag me back to Earth. Ever since then, I've been fighting the Evil Council and Dark Parallax, another evil duplicate of myself. Well, that's my story.
Ramses: That was a great story, but I'm next.
Ramses: In my reality, I was raised on Eltar. I was the son of its most noble citizen, Zordon, who protected our world from the forces of evil. Not to mention I inhereted the warrior skills of my mother Dulcea.
Lamont: Zordon and Dulcea! Talk about serious ranger material.
Ramses: That's exactly what he thought. He obsessed over my training, my body, mind, and soul all my life. Then came the day he offered me a power coin.
Zordon's Home – Eltar
Zordon: Ramses, my son. It is finally time to take your place with the Power Rangers. Come!
Zordon shows the power coin.
Zordon: Be my Blue Ranger.
Ramses: I am honored, father.
Ramses: I fought by his side for years. We defended Eltar from everyone who attacked. But, he didn't want to stop there. When Lord Zedd's forces led by Rita first appeared, he got obsessed. He wanted to protect the whole universe from him. Everyone wanted to leave. Well, except for me.
Command Center – Eltar
Zordon: Come now, Ramses. We must be leaving.
Ramses: I'm sorry, father, but I'm not going.
Ramses: Father, there is so much to be done here on Eltar. With the Power Rangers gone, new forces will surely attack. We must defend it!
Zordon: If you will not step up and take the responsibility of defending the universe, I strip you of your Ranger Powers!
Ramses: But father–
Zordon: I am ashamed of you. You are no son of mine!
Ramses: I wasn't a Ranger, but I was still a hero! I was Ramses, Master Warrior of the Planet Eltar! Just like my mother on Phadeos. I became a Green Lantern soon after and my family is even getting along again.
Lamont: Wow. Those were great stories, but you haven't seen anything yet.
Lamont: Well it really all began, about five years before I got my powers. I met this kid named Eric Griffith; we became friends during 1993, when I was 13…the first time.
Then, two years later, he just started a rumor about me, and spread it around the school. It got so bad that I had to go to another school my junior year, Miami Valley Career Technology Center.
There I met Rene Cerney, who told me about the Internet. After I graduated from both schools, I went to the library and got an e-mail account. Then I went to the ABC Boy Meets World message board, and met Krysta Seltzer. She was planning a trip to go see Boy Meets World, so I jumped at the chance.
I got there and watched the show, and it was great. The next day we drove to a nearby auction, where I bought a box. I got back to the place that I was staying at, and in the box there was a coin and watch. That is where everything got weird. I activated my powers and was teleported to the ruins of the old Command Center.
Then a lot of stuff happened, I lost my powers, and got Ninja Powers. I went through all three zords, the Dragonzord, Dragonzord-Knight Thunderzord, and the Dove Ninjazord. I was the Green Ranger for a couple of months. Then, I got this weapon that could reverse this spell called Merging. Sometimes the enemy would merge an innocent human with an object to turn it into a monster. We had to stun them, then I would turn the person back to normal.
Then we fought the biggest battle of all time on three planets. That tapped out our resources. So the enemy attacked then, while we were week. However, we fought back, and finally eliminated all evil in our part of the Galaxy.
Ramses: You got rid of all evil?
Lamont: Well, just the ones close to us. Evil is everywhere and will be 'til the New Heaven on Earth is created.
Anyway, we got rid of the evil, but there was a booby trap left over from the war. One more monster was created; they pulled out Barney the Dinosaur from the TV. So, when I morphed I was thrown back in time. I went to another Ranger time, and I helped out there. Then the enemy reversed the Earth back in time to the past. When we got the Zeo Crystal, the Earth was returned to normal. However, I didn't get any older than thirteen. Then, I was finally ready to go home, but King Mondo sent me back to 1993. Lucky for me, that was the time I was thirteen, so no one knew the truth but me. However, this time there was something different about my time period. There was organized crime about. I don't know if it was new to the time period, or if it was there before. I guess my ex-ranger sense detected it. Well, my friends and me formed a group called the Railroaders. Then some of us found new Powers, and formed a sub-group called Lamont's Team, or the L-team.
We fought for a while, then were in space, and needed to travel to other dimensions to get some exstinked animals. And that is how I ended up here.
Keith: Well, I guess it's our turn.
Keith moves over to the seat next to Theresa as he begins his oration.
Keith: Matthew, Eugene, Jerry, and I have been friends for as long as Ican remember. One day, a bad earthquake hit our hometown of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. Everyone ran like a stampede of wildebeasts out of the youth center. Everyone, except us. We were sent to a secret Command Center in the desert. There, Zordon gave us the power of four ancient dinosaurs to save our planet from Rita Repulsa. The dinosaurs were Iguanadon, Brachiosaurus, Protoceratops, and Allosaurus.
Theresa: I moved to Cape Hatteras and began training in martial arts. I entered a tournament on the grounds of the lighthouse there in Cape Hatteras. I beat Jerry, but not by much. Later, when I was walking home, I was kidnapped by a squadron of putties and taken to Rita's Palace. She placed a spell on me and gave me the Velociraptor Power Coin. I became the evil White Ranger. The rangers fought for a while, and finally turned me to the side of good.
Keith: Soon, Lord Zedd returned to our galaxy and took over Rita's position. His monster was so strong, it froze our dinozords! Zordon called us to the Command Center to give us new zords that possessed the Strength of the Storm.
Theresa: In an attempt to turn me back evil, Zedd found that my powers could not ever be used for evil again. He then directed his thoughts at Keith, and tried hard to take Keith's powers! Keith resisted, but a brown crystal containing his remaining powers was extracted from his body.
Keith: I fought to retake the crystal, but it shattered in my hands. I lost my powers and can no longer be a ranger.
Theresa: This posed a problem for our team. The Phoenix Stormzord was the offensive weapon to the Mega Stormzord. Without it, we could not attack monsters.
Keith: A transparent gold, ranger-like figure appeared to me and sent me to the Command Center. It told me to tell Zordon to let me use the Dream Key.
Theresa: The Dream Key was entrusted to Zordon of our dimension. It has the ability to send messages to and from the fantasy world of Fantasia. Keith used the Key to summon the Raindragon Gigas to our dimension. Gigas is a very valuable ally.
Keith: Just this morning, we were in the park when the same figure appeared to us again. This time, it told us to use the Dream Key to go to the paradise dimension of Austoros.
Theresa: And here we are now.
Ramses: The Dream Key? Interesting. Anyway, Zika, I know part of your story, but what else is there?
Over 10,000 years ago, my father was the unstoppable Magna Defender. He battled Scorpius and his forces throughout our galaxy. I was his protege, being trained to be his predecessor. To, I was soon struck down by Scorpius. My father thought I was dead, but I wasn't. Soon, Furio, one of Scorpius' henchmen retreived me….
A young Zika lay on the ground. Though he seemed lifeless, he was able to tell what was happening. Suddenly, a large, red figure stepped out of the shadows.
"Ah, Zika. Won't your father be proud that you will soon be a warrior of evil?" Furio said. He reached down and picked up the young, motionless body, and teleported away.
When I was able to move again, they began forcing me to become evil. If I did not train, they would torture me. I heard many stories of my father, most of which told that since his son had died, he had grown cold and set on revenge. I was able to escape from my quarters and live in the secret spaces aboard the ship. One day, Treacheron returned with the most saddening and most motivational news I ever heard…
The young Zika hid behind a wall, listening to the warriors talk about their day of battle, murder, and massacre. He heard Treacheron over all the voices.
"OH! You should have seen him! He boasted about how he was going to destroy me! Ha! That'll show him!" Treacheron boasted.
"I can't believe it! Treacheron, killing the mighty Magna Defender! Who would have thought!" Furio congratulated.
Zika could not believe it. He sat down and cried for his father.
I had to find a way off the ship. I was finally able to one fateful day…
Furio entered the teleportation room. He set in coordinates for the planet Horath. He made his way towards the teleportation chamber. But, he was suddenly grabbed from behind. It was Zika.
"So, there is the son of the Magna Defender. Well, boy, you have to learn a lesson: do not try to escape the wrath of Scorpius!" Furio heaved his sword at Zika. Zika was able to move out of the way in time for the sword to pass by him and penetrate the wall behind him.
Furio ran to grab his weapon. He was finally able to pull his sword from the wall when he heard Zika. "Teleport!" Furio turned around in time to see Zika disappear from the chamber.
"No!' Furio cried. He heaved his sword at the teleportation chamber. There was a flash of light, and the teleportation systems went down.
I traveled to the planet Tyrune, our home planet, but I really wanted to find my father, or his body, whichever I could. The Tyrunian people knew of my father, and as a result, they allowed me to borrow one of their ships. I traveled to the planet Uri, where I found what I was looking for…
Zika searched the area for any sign of his father. Suddenly, he came along a gleam. Running towards it, he realized it was his fathers sword.
"Finally….," he picked up the sword, "I will honor my father and be," he raised it high, "the Magna Defender!" Suddenly, he transformed into the Magna Defender.
Zika: From there on, I took on my father's role. I also had an advantage with the forces because I had been taught to be one of them.
Lamont: Whoa. That's cool.
Blade: Those were all good stories, but we are now here at the palace.
They went inside, and there they were introduced to the Princess. Lamont and Blade gasped when they saw her, for she looked like Kat.
Princess: I am glad to see you warriors. We are in great danger as is all reality. You have already met Tech, the one behind all of this. He has plans to rule, and has been planning it for some time. However recently a weapon has appeared from one of your realms.
Lamont: Oh my gosh, that is the Reverser.
Blade: What can it do?
Lamont got a computer.
Lamont: Let me show you. This is you in full Parallax form. Now the Reverser is fired upon you. Now, if it stays upon you, this will happen.
On the screen, Parallax was turned into Zeo, then into the White Zeo Ranger, then into the Gold Ranger, next back into Blade, then to a child, a toddler, a baby, and back all the way into a sperm and an egg.
They saw what happened on the screen.
Blade: Wow. That is some weapon.
Theresa: How can we fight this?
Princess: There is a great power upon this planet, and I am willing to give it to you warriors, and you can take it back to your own realms.
Keith: Cool, our Powers will be upgraded!
Princess: Yes, as well as the powers of your comrades when you return. However, first you must past three tests. The first will test your courage. The next test will test your power. Finally, the last test will test your wisdom, only then will I allow you to go on the quest through the Spooky Forest to claim your upgraded powers. Then, you will have the ability to defeat Tech.
Ramses: Wow! That is a lot of stuff to do.
Lamont: And not a lot of time to do it in. Come on, we don't have a moment to spare.
