# LOOK, LEXIAN ANOTHER OF DREGON'S PLAGUE SENTRIES.
I'D LIKE TO PULL HIS HORNS OFF.
( laughing: ) THE FOOLS! THE POISONOUS GASES THEY DIG UP ONLY HASTEN THE DESTRUCTION OF THEIR PLANETS.
YOU WILL GET YOUR CHANCE SOME DAY, DEX.
DREGON WILL BE PLEASED.
OH, AY-YI-YI.
ALPHA, WHAT IS TROUBLING YOU? HOW CAN I BE OF ANY HELP IF YOU'LL NOT TELL ME WHAT THE PROBLEM IS? ZORDON, I'M AFRAID NO ONE CAN HELP.
THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO FIND OUT.
PLEASE TELL ME, ALPHA.
WHAT HAS HAPPENED? OH, I SUPPOSE YOU'RE RIGHT.
I WAS MONITORING THE GALACTIC SCANNER WHEN I PICKED UP A DISTRESS SIGNAL FROM THE PLANET EDENOI.
YOUR HOME PLANET? NO WONDER THAT DISTURBS YOU, ALPHA.
I'M WELL AWARE YOUR MEMORY BANKS CONTAIN FOND MEMORIES OF EDENOI.
THERE'S MORE.
I WAS ASSEMBLED ON EDENOI BY THEIR LEADER LEXIAN BUT MY SCAN PICKED UP NO TRACE OF HIM AND THE PLANET APPEARS TO BE UNDER HEAVY ATTACK.
EDENOI IS VERY FAR AWAY.
FOR NOW, ALL WE CAN DO IS CONTINUE TO MONITOR AND HOPE FOR MORE INFORMATION.
OH, ZORDON, I JUST KNOW DEEP IN MY CIRCUITS THAT SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG! BEHOLD THE LORD OF EVIL, COUNT DREGON, IS ON THE BRIDGE.
Dregon: WHAT HAVE YOU TO REPORT? THE ATTACK IS PROCEEDING AS EXPECTED ACCORDING TO THE PLAN, COUNT DREGON.
YOUR BRILLIANT PLAN! AND WHAT OF THE PLANET, HIGHNESS? DESTROY IT.
Aisha: HI, KIM.
HOW ARE YOU FEELING TODAY? AWFUL.
HOLD ON A SECOND, OKAY? I STILL HAVE A TEMPERATURE.
I HATE HAVING THE FLU.
LOOK, JUST REST AND DRINK PLENTY OF LIQUIDS.
I'll check with you later.
OKAY.
SAY HI TO THE GUYS FOR ME, ALL RIGHT? WILL DO.
FEEL BETTER.
BYE.
BYE.
( coughing and sniffing ) THANKS, ERNIE.
HEY, NO PROBLEM, AISHA.
HOW'S KIM? SHE STILL HAS A FEVER BUT I THINK SHE'LL LIVE.
( both grunting ) HEY, WHAT'S UP? I JUST CONTACTED ALPHA TO CHECK THE CLARITY OF THAT NEW CHIP I INSTALLED IN THE COMMUNICATORS.
Rocky: AND? WELL, I'M NOT EXACTLY SURE BUT ALPHA SOUNDED DIFFERENT.
HOW DO YOU MEAN? SAD, I GUESS.
I MEAN, I KNOW IT SOUNDS STRANGE 'CAUSE HE IS A ROBOT.
BUT HE DEFINITELY SOUNDED DOWN.
MAYBE HE'S JUST LONELY.
DO ROBOTS GET LONELY? HE'S MORE THAN A ROBOT TO ME.
TO ALL OF US.
HEY, LET'S GO PAY HIM A VISIT.
COOL.
( snarls ) OF ALL THE ROTTEN LUCK, WHY HIM?! HEY, ZEDDIE BOY! YOU'RE SLIPPING! THE POWER RANGERS ARE DOWN THERE ON EARTH NOT UP IN SPACE.
WHO CARES ABOUT THEM? THAT GIANT THING IN THE MASK, COUNT DREGON HAS REARED HIS UGLY HEAD AGAIN! HE AND HIS SPIDERFACE ARE BLASTING SOME PLANET TO RUBBLE OUT IN THE ANDROMEDA SECTOR! CURSES! SO? THAT'S GOOD.
COUNT DREGON IS THE EVILEST OF EVIL.
I LIKE COUNT DREGON.
( snarls ) WELL, I HATE HIM! I HATE HIM EVEN MORE THAN I HATE THE POWER RANGERS.
WHAT DID YOU DO? WAKE UP ON THE WRONG SIDE OF YOUR HYPERBARIC CHAMBER THIS MORNING? FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER COUNT DREGON HAS BEEN TRYING TO ONE-UP ME.
TO BE MORE EVIL MORE DASTARDLY THAN ME.
LOOK! WE CAN'T EVEN CONQUER ONE MEASLY LITTLE PLANET.
( growling in anger ) TAKE A CHILL PILL, ZEDDIE AND LISTEN TO ME.
FINSTER'S WORKING ON A WONDERFULLY NASTY MONSTER THAT'S GOING TO BLOW EARTH OUT OF THE SKY.
THE POWER RANGERS WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO DEFEAT THIS NEW MONSTER.
SINCE WHEN HAVE ANY OF FINSTER'S MONSTERS BEEN ABLE TO WALK AND CHEW GUM AT THE SAME TIME? ZEDDIE, BABY, TRUST ME.
THIS TIME, THERE'S NO WAY OUT FOR THE POWER RANGERS.
DEJA VU.
THE PATH OF SIGNALS DEFINITELY SHOW SOME INTERFERENCE WITHIN THE PLANET'S ENVIRONMENT.
OH, I KNEW IT.
THEY REALLY ARE IN TROUBLE.
HOW FAR IS THIS PLANET, ZORDON? EDENOI IS LOCATED IN THE NORTHERNMOST CORNER OF THE GALAXY, IN THE CONSTELLATION ANDROMEDA.
IT IS FAR BEYOND OUR REACH.
WHO INHABITS IT? THEY ARE CALLED EDENOITES, ADAM.
A HIGHLY INTELLIGENT AND GENTLE RACE OF PEOPLE AS ALPHA HIMSELF CAN TELL YOU.
THE PLANET'S LEADER, KING LEXIAN ASSEMBLED ME HIMSELF AND GAVE ME LIFE.
HE WAS LIKE A FATHER TO ME.
ALPHA, WE'RE YOUR FAMILY HERE.
WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP? I'M AFRAID THERE IS VERY LITTLE YOU CAN DO TO ASSIST.
AT SUCH A GREAT DISTANCE, THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE ALL OF YOUR POWERS.
THE RISKS OF SUCH A JOURNEY ARE TOO GREAT.
TAKING RISKS NEVER STOPPED US BEFORE, ZORDON.
I THINK WE SHOULD GO CHECK IT OUT.
AY-YI-YI! WOULD YOU REALLY DO THAT FOR ME, RANGERS? I HAVE RESERVATIONS ABOUT THIS VENTURE.
BUT IT APPEARS TO BE THE ONLY WAY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE SITUATION ON EDENOI.
REMEMBER, RANGERS, YOU ARE ONLY GOING TO INVESTIGATE.
PLEASE TRY TO FIND OUT WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO KING LEXIAN.
REMEMBER, THE DISTANCE MAY AFFECT YOUR POWERS.
DO NOT BECOME INVOLVED IN THEIR CONFLICT.
ZORDON, WILL YOU BE ABLE TO CONTACT US IF AN ATTACK ARISES? YES.
THAT NEWLY INSTALLED CHIP WILL MAKE THAT POSSIBLE.
GOOD WORK.
WE COULD JUST TELEPORT BACK IF WE WERE NEEDED.
YEAH.
I SAY WE DO IT.
- FOR ALPHA.
- OH.
FRIENDSHIP IS A POWERFUL GIFT, RANGERS.
I COMMEND YOU FOR YOUR COURAGE.
ALPHA, CAN YOU CONTACT KIMBERLY FOR US? LET HER KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON.
YOU CAN COUNT ON IT, TOMMY.
VERY WELL.
PREPARE TO MORPH.
RANGERS, PROMISE TO BE CAREFUL.
I'D NEVER FORGIVE MYSELF IF ANYTHING HAPPENED TO YOU.
DON'T WORRY, ALPHA.
IT'S MORPHIN TIME! TIGERZORD! MASTODON! TRICERATOPS! SABER-TOOTHED TIGER! TYRANNOSAURUS! ( Rangers grunting ) ALL RIGHT, GUYS, THIS IS THE BIG ONE.
ZORDON, WE'RE READY.
AY-YI-YI! MY MEMORY BANKS WILL NEVER FAIL TO RETRIEVE THIS DAY'S EVENTS, RANGERS.
IT GIVES ME A WARM FUZZY FEELING IN ALL MY CIRCUITS.
TOMMY, BE PREPARED for anything upon your arrival.
The selective coordinates will land you near the worst disturbances on Edenoi.
STAND BY TO TELEPORT.
ALPHA, ENTER THE COORDINATES.
RIGHT! ENTERING COORDINATES NOW.
INITIATING TELEPORTATION SEQUENCE.
ALL RIGHT, GUYS HERE GOES.
All: POWER RANGERS! OH, THANK YOU, ZORDON! THANK YOU! ( growls ) BLAST! WHERE ARE THEY? WHAT?! WHERE ARE THOSE RANGERS?! WHAT ARE THEY UP TO?! AMAZING AS IT SEEMS, MY DEAR I CAN NO LONGER DETECT THEM EXCEPT FOR KIMBERLY WHO HAS SOME HUMAN AILMENT.
AW, PO BABY.
THE PERFECT TIME FOR AN ATTACK, MY LORD.
WHAT A BRILLIANT IDEA.
NOW, WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT? ( growls ) IS HE FOR REAL? WE MUST CONQUER EARTH BEFORE DREGON GETS HIS EYE ON IT.
CAN FINSTER'S MONSTER REALLY DELIVER? OF COURSE, ZEDDIE-POO.
NO ONE COULD PUT ONE OVER ON US.
TOGETHER, WE'RE UNBEATABLE! UNBEATABLE! I DIDN'T MEAN YOU, GOLDIE BLOCKS! I'LL GO CHECK ON FINSTER.
( grunting in disgust ) ( growls ) ISN'T SHE SOMETHING, GOLDAR? YES, MY LORD.
SHE'S SOMETHING, ALL RIGHT.
( growling ) Rita: FINSTER! I DON'T SMELL MONSTERS COOKING! TALK TO ME, FINSTER! WHAT'S THE DEAL? WHERE'S MY MONSTER?! UH JUST A LITTLE LONGER, MY QUEEN AND YOU'LL HAVE IT.
MM-HMM.
WELL, GET ON WITH IT! PUT THAT PUPPY IN THE OVEN AND GET TO COOKING.
THE RANGERS ARE OUT OF SIGHT.
NO ONE CAN STOP US NOW.
UGH! YES, YOUR CRUELTY.
EARTH WILL BE OURS! ALL RIGHT, EVERYBODY BE PREPARED FOR ANYTHING.
Aisha: YOU HEAR THOSE EXPLOSIONS? YEAH.
THEY'RE GETTING CLOSER.
SOMEBODY OUT THERE IS USING SOME HEAVY-DUTY FIREPOWER.
WHY? THERE'S NOTHING HERE BUT ROCKS.
IT'S GOT TO BE A SPACESHIP TRYING TO DISRUPT THE PLANET'S SURFACE.
IF WE DON'T TAKE COVER, WE'LL BE DISRUPTED.
( yelling ) WHICH WAY SHOULD WE GO? THEY'RE BLASTING ALL AROUND US.
HEY, IT STOPPED.
PROBABLY NOT FOR LONG.
LET'S GO.
RIGHT.
THIS ROCK FORMATION OUGHT TO GIVE US SOME COVER IF THE SHELLING STARTS AGAIN.
WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT WHERE IT'S COMING FROM AND WHO'S DOING IT.
WHOEVER THEY ARE, THEY'RE CLOSE.
WHERE ARE THE EDENOITES? I THINK I JUST FOUND OUT WHERE SOME OF THEM ARE.
BUT WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE THEY DOING? I THINK I SEE MOVEMENT.
WHOA.
HEY, GUYS, COME HERE! COME OVER HERE AND CHECK THIS OUT.
WHOA! WHO ARE THOSE GUYS? NOW, WHERE HAS DEX GONE? THEY MUST BE EDENOITES, BUT HOW CAN WE BE SURE? WHAT ARE THEY DIGGING UP? ACCORDING TO THE DATA AT THE COMMAND CENTER THIS AREA IS HONEYCOMBED WITH POCKETS OF POISONOUS GASES JUST BELOW THE SURFACE.
THAT WOULD EXPLAIN THE GAS MASKS.
BUT WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO RELEASE POISON GAS? YEAH.
I DON'T GET IT.
( all kiaiing ) HUH? INTRUDERS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? WAIT.
WE MEAN YOU NO HARM.
WE COME TO YOUR PLANET IN PEACE.
HA! A LIKELY STORY.
WE RECEIVED A REPORT THAT YOUR PLANET WAS IN DANGER.
YOU LIE! WE SENT NO MESSAGE TO THE LIKES OF YOU.
YOU POSE AS FRIENDS, BUT YOUR GARMENTS BETRAY YOU.
YOU WERE SENT BY COUNT DREGON TO ENSLAVE OUR PEOPLE.
THAT'S NOT IT.
WE'RE FROM THE PLANET EARTH.
WE DON'T KNOW WHO COUNT DREGON IS.
HE LIES.
THEY MEAN TO ATTACK US.
I CALL UPON THE POWERS OF LIGHT AND TRUTH TO BECOME MASKED RIDER.
ECTO-BAY, ACTIVATE! NOW YOU SHALL PAY.
WHOA.
THIS GUY DEFINITELY HAS THE WRONG IDEA ABOUT US.
HEAR ME.
THERE'S NO ROOM ON THIS PLANET FOR COUNT DREGON AND HIS EVIL PLAGUE PATROL.
IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO STAND WITH ME NOW DEFENDERS OF EDENOITE.
COULDN'T WE TALK ABOUT THIS? SILENCE! WORDS HAVE NO MEANING ON A PLANET UNDER THE CAPE OF WAR.
GUYS, COME ON NOW.
HOLD ON A SECOND.
FOR EDENOI, MY FRIENDS.
( kiaiing ) STOP, PLEASE! WE DON'T WANT TO FIGHT YOU.
WE DON'T WANT TO FIGHT, GUYS.
IT'S FINISHED, YOUR HIGHNESS AND LOUDNESS.
I'VE COMPLETED THE MONSTER.
YOU'LL BE PLEASED.
IT IS TRULY A MAGNIFICENT CREATURE.
IS IT GOOD ENOUGH TO DESTROY ANGEL GROVE? YES, OF COURSE.
THEN MOVE IT, FINNY! LET'S SEE SOME ACTION NOW! MM-HMM.
BRING THE CREATURE TO ME, FINSTER.
I WANT TO RULE THE EARTH BY SUNDOWN.
RIGHT AWAY.
AH WHAT A TEAM WE MAKE.
YOU SAID IT, ZEDDSTER.
NOW THE POWER RANGERS ARE KAPUT.
( both laughing ) YOU GOT TO BELIEVE ME.
WE'RE NOT THE ENEMY.
ARE YOU NOT INTRUDING ON OUR WORLD? ALL INTRUDERS ARE ENEMIES OF THE EDENOITES.
YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND.
LET ME EXPLAIN WHY WE'VE COME HERE.
WAIT! NOW HOLD ON A SECOND.
WE ONLY CAME BECAUSE ALPHA ASKED US TO.
ALPHA? DID YOU SAY ALPHA? WE HAVE TO TALK.
YOUR PLANET SURFACE IS BEING DISRUPTED.
BUT HOW? HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT? PREPARE TO BE CRUSHED, INTERLOPERS LIKE ALL THOSE WHO DARE TO CROSS THE MASKED RIDER.
THIS IS GETTING US NOWHERE.
YOU'VE GOT TO LISTEN TO US.
NOTHING YOU CAN SAY WILL SAVE YOU.
YOU SEALED YOUR OWN FATE BY COMING HERE.
NOW YOU SHALL PAY THE ULTIMATE PRICE FOR YOUR ACTIONS.
YOU GOT TO BELIEVE US.
WE'RE HERE TO HELP.
I BELIEVE NO ONE.
WE SHOULD BE FIGHTING TOGETHER.
YEAH.
HOLD UP, WILL YOU? NEVER.
YOU CAN GO TELL COUNT DREGON YOU HAVE FAILED.
DOUBLEFACE, WHO ARE THESE MULTI-COLORED CREATURES WHO BATTLE MASKED RIDER? UNFORTUNATELY, THE SHIP'S COMPUTER IS UNABLE TO IDENTIFY THEM, MY LORD.
BUT, CLEARLY, THEY ALSO SEEK TO POSSESS MASKED RIDER'S POWER SO THEY TOO MUST BE DESTROYED.
YOUR MAJESTY, HEAR WHAT I SAY.
IS THERE NOT A BETTER WAY? DESTROY THE FIVE, YES.
GIVE THEM OUR WORST BUT LET THEM DEFEAT MASKED RIDER FIRST.
SILENCE, YOU GENETIC JUNK PILE! IF THEY DO DEFEAT MASKED RIDER THEY WILL ACQUIRE HIS POWERS BEFORE WE DO.
THAT CAN NEVER HAPPEN.
RIGHT.
MOUNT AN AERIAL ASSAULT AT ONCE.
YOU WILL CONTINUE UNTIL THEY'RE ALL DESTROYED.
WHY DO YOU CONTINUE? GIVE UP AND GO BACK TO DREGON.
HUH? COME ON, HOTSHOT.
HOLD STILL A SECOND, WILL YOU? WAIT A SECOND.
WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO TO CONVINCE YOU? ALL IS READY FOR A FULL AERIAL ASSAULT, COUNT DREGON.
AWAITING YOUR COMMAND.
WHEN WE ATTACK, WE SHALL BLAST MASKED RIDER AND HIS COLORFUL PLAYMATES TO OBLIVION.
EVERYTHING WILL FALL INTO PLACE.
WILL THE FOOD GET ANY BETTER? BE QUIET YOU SILLY SPACE MOLLUSK.
COMMENCE SHOOTING NOW.
YOU TWO CAN'T HOLD ME DOWN.
THEY'RE FIRING AGAIN.
AND RIGHT AT US THIS TIME.
WAIT A MINUTE.
DREGON'S SHIP IS FIRING AT ALL OF US.
EVEN DREGON ISN'T LOW ENOUGH TO FIRE ON HIS OWN SOLDIERS.
WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO TELL YOU.
WE CAME HERE TO HELP.
BUT WE'VE BEEN GETTING BLASTED SINCE WE GOT HERE.
WE MUST KNOW IF THEY ARE TELLING THE TRUTH.
HOW WERE YOU ABLE TO FIND US? OUR FRIEND ALPHA 5 BELIEVED YOU WERE IN DANGER.
WE'RE THE POWER RANGERS.
FRIENDS OF ALPHA ARE FRIENDS OF OURS.
WELCOME TO EDENOI.
SOMEHOW, THEY'VE ALL ESCAPED DESTRUCTION COUNT DREGON.
HOW DO YOU PROPOSE WE FIX THAT? FIRE AGAIN.
FRIENDS, WE MUST SEEK SANCTUARY.
THIS WAY, QUICKLY.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO TELL ME TWICE.
COME ON.
COME ON, GET INTO THE CAVE.
HURRY, THIS WAY.
ONCE MORE, WE ARE ALL SAFE TO FIGHT YOU ANOTHER DAY, COUNT DREGON.
INCOMPETENT FOOLS! YOU'VE LET THEM ESCAPE.
SEND THE PLAGUE PATROL AND FIND THEM IMMEDIATELY OR HEADS WILL ROLL.
NOW BE GONE.
CONSIDER IT DONE, COUNT.
CYCLOPTOR IS ON THE JOB.
THEY SHALL NOT ESCAPE MY WRATH.
YOU CAN'T BECOME A MARTIAL ARTIST UNLESS YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR MIND.
ONCE YOU DO THIS, YOUR BODY WILL FOLLOW ALONG.
MARTIAL ARTS STARTS WITH THE STRONGEST MUSCLE IN YOUR BODY: YOUR MIND.
