Chapter 01- Ultimate Legacy: Shattered

The Wheel of Time had broken.

Reality had shattered.

The Pattern had ripped into pieces. But loose strings remained. Loose timelines and shadows of the main reality. These shadows dimmed to nothingness, and these strings evaporated, but they did so slowly.

Broken strings overlapped and tied together — then unwound. Cords of reality unknotted and unraveled into smaller fibers of existence.

Eventually the Pattern and all its possibilities would cease to exist, shredded into nothingness.

Until then, one string remained from the main reality. One warped timeline, amidst a storm of broken dimensions and shattered parallel worlds.

Within this timeline, a ship sailed through what remained of space.

***

The Legacy Galleon soared through a reality storm on the outskirts of what may have been the Milky Way Galaxy. Tyler Oliver couldn’t tell. Not anymore.

He gripped his command wheel and steered towards the center of the storm.

“What are you doing?” asked his crewmate, Mat. “That’s the wrong way! We’re supposed to be heading out of the storm, not further in! Danger bad. Safety good.”

“Relax,” Tyler said casually. “It’s just a Level Six.”

“It’s a Level Seven!” Mat shouted. “The last Level Seven splintered a whole quadrant into pieces.”

Tyler waved his hand dismissively. “Six. Seven. We’ll be fine.”

The storm smashed the galleon, which shifted off course. Distortion energy battered the hull and rocked the five crew members within their cockpit.

Tyler’s crewmate, Seth, knitted his brow. “This isn’t fine.”

Tyler smirked. “You worry too much.”

“You don’t worry enough,” Mat said.

“Can we please not get killed?” Kira asked.

“We’re not getting killed,” Tyler said. “We’ve been through worse before. Now come on…through the heart of the storm!”

He snapped his wheel, and the ship blasted through the center of the distortion.

Energy discharges thrashed the ship with massive bursts of spark that nearly destroyed the vessel. But the Legacy Galleon emerged safely in a normal sliver of space-time.

Mat sighed and leaned again his wheel. “I swear, you’re going to give me a heart attack. Am I too young for a heart attack? Because I think I’m having one. Right now.”

Kym smiled at him. “You say that every time we pass through a storm.”

“That’s because it’s true every time we pass through a storm,” Mat said. “We can’t keep this up for much longer.”

“Hopefully we won’t have to,” Seth said.

“Um, guys…?” Kira asked as she looked out the viewport. “Have any of you looked outside, by chance?”

The crew looked to see an Earth, surrounded by enemy ships that belonged to the Armada. Before the Wheel of Time splintered, the Armada traveled from parallel timeline to parallel timeline, from dimension to dimension, conquering everything in their path.

“The Armada…” Seth said.

“And that’s an Earth,” Kym said. “We finally found an Earth.”

“But which one?” Kira asked.

“Let’s find out,” Tyler said.

Mat arced an eyebrow. “I don’t suppose the bajillion Armada ships are a concern to you?”

Tyler shook his head. “What we need is on that planet.”

Seth nodded. “The Final Secret.”

Tyler pulled his morpher from his jacket. “Full speed ahead, guys. Let’s make this showy…”

Mat sighed and muttered. “I hate it when he says that…”

***

The Legacy Galleon throttled towards the Armada forces. The enemy took notice and dispatched a wave of cruisers.

The ships fired beams of green energy that exploded around the Galleon with bursts of spark and flame. The blasts singed the ship’s energy shields and ablative armor, which withstood the barrage.

The Ultimate Red Ranger, Tyler Oliver, grasped the wheel of his ship. “Arm the port cannons. Fire!”

The ship entered the enemy formation and opened fire with its port cannons. The cannons blasted through Armada ships with bursts of spark that tore through their hulls.



The Legacy Galleon fired another barrage, which tore through a formation of enemy ships. The vessels exploded into scrap metal.

“Hard to starboard!” the Red Ranger shouted as he snapped his wheel to the right.

The galleon flew head-on towards a wave of Armada ships. The cruisers opened fire with green energy beams that stabbed the galleon’s armor with bursts of spark.

The galleon throttled forward. Its bladed bow tore through an enemy ship, splitting the vessel from bow to stern with a massive explosion.



The Rangers used the explosion for cover to fly further into the enemy formation.

The enemy ships opened fire with massive volleys of energy blasts. The particle beams battered the Galleon with massive bursts of spark and flame.

When the flames cleared, the galleon had shifted shape into a robo: The Ultimate Megazord.

The Megazord armed a pair of curved sabers, ran across the moon, and leapt at the Armada ships.



The robo twisted and turned while hacking through vessels. Its blades tore through hulls and ripped through engines, blowing the ships apart.

Cruisers opened fire with energy beams. But the Megazord twisted, dodged and throttled forward. The robo moved faster than the ships could target.

The Ultimate Megazord twisted away from an energy beam, landed on a ship, and stabbed through its bridge. The vessel exploded, and the Megazord throttled through the explosion.

The robo somersaulted through space and leapt at the remaining vessels with a flying kick.

The Ultimate Megazord armed its gauntlet cannon and fired bursts of energy that tore through the cruisers.



The Armada vessels burst into flames and crashed into one another with a chain reaction of explosions.

The robo kicked a ship and pushed it backward. The vessel smashed against another ship, and another, and then another. The Megazord flipped backward as the chain of ships exploded.

“We did it…” said Kira, the Yellow Ranger. “From here, it’s a straight path to Earth.”

“I hope it’s really there,” said Mat, the Green Ranger. “Otherwise this was a huge waste of time.”

The Red Ranger leaned casually on his wheel. “It’s there…”

He snapped his wheel and aimed the Megazord towards the planet. The robo disassembled, combined into the Legacy Galleon and dove through the Earth’s atmosphere.

***

The Legacy Galleon flew over the desolated cityscape of Angel Grove. The city looked like a graveyard of gutted buildings and rubble.

Parts of the rubble hovered in midair and crackled with distortion energy, the same type of energy that ripped apart space and time.

“What happened here…?” asked the Pink Ranger, Kym.

The Blue Ranger, Seth, shook his head. “That’s the question we need to answer…”

The Rangers’ ship hovered to a stop, and they powered down their armor.

“Let’s get to the surface…” Tyler said.

***

The rangers walked through the vacant streets for nearly two hours. They saw no one, dead or alive.

Kira shook her head. “I’m starting to think there’s nothing’s here…”

“We’re not even sure where here is,” Seth said. “Not yet, at least.”

“No, this is it,” Kym said. “This is the Earth our parents came from. I can feel it…”

An energy distortion tore through a nearby building with a burst of light, which reflected like stained glass. The distortion ripped over the street and opened a portal.

A figure staggered through the portal and nearly collapsed. He looked as if made of stained glass. He called himself Kiva.

The being fell to his knees, and his skin cracked.

“Well…” Mat said. “It’s sad that I don’t find this odd.”

“What is he?” Kym asked.

Kiva climbed to his feet, but he quickly lost his strength and fell to his knees. Glass chipped from his skin.

“The Armada…” he whispered. “They’re coming.”

“Um, they’re already here,” Mat said.

“Or were,” Kira said. “We took care of them.”

Kiva shook his head.

“They’re never gone…” he whispered.

Distortion fields tore through the skies. Dozens of X-Borgs dropped from the portals and landed on the street.



Kiva glared at the grunts and tried to climb to his feet. But he could barely stay conscious.

Tyler and his teammates stepped between the Rider and grunts.

“How many time are we going to have to rip you apart?” he asked the villains.

More X-Borgs dropped to the street, along with more powerful grunts called Zergs.



An Armada Action Commander, Shika’ban, marched in the lead.



“It’s you…” the monster said as he glared at the rangers. “Cursed renegades…There’s a bounty on your heads. And you show yourself here?”

“Seems that way,” Tyler said.

Shika’ban grunted with disbelief. “Hand over the Fangaira, and I will let you walk away, this one time.”

Seth shook his head. “You’re the one who’s going to walk away…or be destroyed. Your choice.”

“You fools!” Shika’ban shouted. “We are the Armada! Destroyers of the Blood Dimension! Tamers of Demon World Earth! Conquerors of-”

“Enough,” Tyler said as he pulled out his morpher in one hand, and a Ranger Key in the other.

His teammates did the same.

“It’s morphin’ time!” he shouted. Together they called out: “Ultimate Transform!”

They inserted their Ranger Keys into their morphers and turned the Keys. Their morphers called out: “POOOOOWER RANGERS!”

They morphed into their Ranger forms and stepped into fighting poses.

“Ultimate Red Ranger.”

“Ultimate Blue Ranger.”

“Ultimate Green Ranger.”

“Ultimate Yellow Ranger.”

“Ultimate Pink Ranger.”

“Ultimate Task Force…” They called out together: “Power Rangers!”

The Red Ranger unsheathed his Power Saber with one hand and his Power Blaster with the other. “Let’s make this showy…”

He blasted X-Borgs with bursts of spark that knocked them away from the action commander.



He shifted his aim and blasted Shika’ban; bullets sparked against his body and sent him staggering backward.

The Rangers charged, and the grunts returned the charge.

The Rangers hacked and blasted their way through X-Borgs. Their sabers tore through robotic bodies, and their blasters punctured through their armor and whipped them off their feet.

The Red Ranger slashed an X-Borg aside and blasted a second grunt at point-blank range.

The Pink Ultimate Ranger jumped onto a ruined rooftop. She slashed an X-Borg and blasted a second grunt.

More X-Borgs surrounded her, faster than she could keep up. So she snapped a grappling line and swung through the air. She angled her descent towards another building while blasting the grunts below.

The Yellow Ranger dashed through a group of X-Borgs while chopping left and right, ripping them apart with bursts of spark. She side-kicked an X-Borg to the ground and blasted a second X-Borg in the faceplate.

Meanwhile, blaster firing, the Blue Ranger leapt from a ruined rooftop and landed on a neighboring building.

A wave of grunts swung their clubs at the Ranger. But he spun and swiped his blade wide, slashing them back.

The Blue Ranger leapt from the building, landed on the street with a somersault and rolled to his feet with a swipe of his sword; the blade ripped an X-Borg in half.

The Green Ultimate Ranger landed on a ruined building and slashed an X-Borg aside. The Ranger stepped back, lost his balance — and fell off the building. But he landed on a cable, which stretched towards the street, where he blasted a group of X-Borgs aside. The cable bounced back up, and the Green Ranger opened fire, shooting every X-Borg in sight.

The Red Ranger jumped against the side of a building and hopped off while blasting a trio of X-Borgs. He landed and swung his blade through a butterfly pattern that hacked several grunts aside. Then he swung his blaster and fired a round of bullets that ripped a wave of X-Borgs before they came close.

An X-Borg snuck up behind the Red Ranger. But he turned and chopped the grunt to the ground with a burst of spark.

Two X-Borgs leapt at the Red Ranger and chopped their clubs. The Ranger used his sword to block, and then blasted their guts with bursts of spark.

The Red Ranger hurled his blade, which slashed through a grunt’s chest near the Blue Ranger.

The Red Ranger looked towards the Green Ranger.

“Mat,” he called out, his voice calm and casual, even in the heat of battle.

“Right!” Mat shouted.

The Green Ranger tossed his sword at the Red Ranger, and the Blue Ranger tossed his blaster at his leader.

The Red Ranger grabbed the sword and kicked the blaster through the air.

The Green Ranger caught the blaster, which he dual wielded along with his own gun.

The Blue Ranger pulled the Red Ranger’s sword from the grunt’s chest, and he dual wielded the weapon along with his own blade.

The Green Ranger jumped onto a cable and wrapped his legs around it like a trapeze. He swung over the street while leaning down and firing both blasters, which ripped through grunts with bursts of spark.

The Blue Ultimate Ranger charged through grunts while slashing through intricate patterns that ripped them apart.

A group of X-Borgs crouched and held their staffs like bazookas. The staffs fired their maces like cannons that streaked towards the Blue Ranger.

The Blue Ranger twirled his blades and slashed the blasts aside with massive bursts of spark and flame.

Meanwhile, the Pink Ranger and Yellow Ranger exchanged weapons.

The Ultimate Pink Ranger swung her blasters and fired volleys of bullets. The blasts tore through grunts’ armor and whipped them off their feet.

The Yellow Ranger somersaulted through the air and landed while chopping her swords through an X-Borg. She spun and slashed a solider to her side.

The Blue Ranger, Pink Ranger and Green Ranger regrouped around the Yellow Ranger.

The Yellow Ranger sighed as another wave of X-Borgs moved towards them. “There’s a ton of them…”

The Red Ranger walked to his teammates. “Time to go Legendary…”

The Pink Ranger nodded. “Good idea…”

The Red Ranger snapped open his belt buckler to reveal a Ranger Key shaped like the Red Tyranno Ranger, of the Battle Task Force Power Rangers. The other Ranges pulled Battle Task Force Keys from their bucklers.

They armed their morphers.

“Dino! Buckler!” They inserted their keys into their morphers and shifted form with bursts of energy. Their morphers shouted: “BAAAAAATTLE TASK FORCE!”

They transformed into the Battle Task Force Power Rangers: Tyler became Tyranno Ranger Red, Mat became Mammoth Ranger Black, Seth became Tricera Ranger Blue, Kira became Tiger Ranger Yellow and Kym became Ptera Ranger Pink.



They armed their weapons.

“Tyranno Sword!”

“Mammoth Breaker!”

“Tricera Lance!”

“Tiger Daggers!”

“Ptera Bow!”

“Let’s bring ‘em together,” the Red Ranger said.

The Rangers combined their weapons into a cannon. They stood in formation and aimed forward.

“Power Blaster!” they shouted. “Fire!”

The cannon fired beams of energy that combined into a single blast. The blast exploded through X-Borgs with a massive shockwave that ripped them to pieces and shook the streets.

From the rooftops, a group of Zergs led another wave of X-Borgs that jumped towards the Rangers.

The grunts bashed the Rangers with club and mace swings, taking them by surprise and scattering them.

Tyranno Ranger swung upward; his blade slashed an X-Borg with a burst of spark that whipped the grunt off its feet.

The Rangers regrouped and stood back-to-back as the grunts swarmed around them.

They pulled out another set of Ranger Keys and armed their morphers.

“Samurai! Scribe!” They inserted their keys into their morphers and shifted form with bursts of energy. Their morphers shouted: “SAAAAAAMURAI RANGERS!”

They transformed into the Symbol Task Force Samurai Rangers. Tyler became Samurai Red, Seth became Samurai Blue, Mat became Samurai Green, Kira became Samurai Yellow, and Kym became Samurai Pink.



They unsheathed their Spin Swords and bashed through the grunts with a flurry of chops and slashes. Their blades struck hard and fast, tearing through bot after bot before they could counter or defend themselves.

The Red Ranger parried and chopped through an X-Borg. The Blue Ranger dodged and slashed a Zerg’s gut. The Yellow Ranger and Pink Ranger stood back-to-back and slashed a group of X-Borgs apart. And the Green Ranger hacked through a trio of grunts in front of him.

The Rangers regrouped and armed another set of Ranger Keys.

“Magical Source! Mystic Force!” They inserted their keys into their morphers and shifted form with bursts of energy. Their morphers shouted: “MYYYYSTIC RANGERS!”

They transformed into the Askani Task Force Mystic Rangers. Tyler became Mystic Red, Mat became Mystic Green, Seth became Mystic Blue, Kira became Mystic Yellow and Kym became Mystic Pink.

They snapped towards the next wave of grunts and armed their staffs.



“Magi Magica!” they shouted as they thrust their staffs forward.

The staffs fired waves of elemental energy that swept through the grunts with massive bursts of spark and flame, hurling them backward as secondary explosions tore through their bodies.

The Rangers lowered their weapons, having cleared the last of the grunts.

Shika’ban stepped onto the street to face the Rangers. “That was quite the show…but I’ve grown tired of it.”

He aimed his cannons and fired missiles that streaked towards the Rangers. The missiles exploded around them with massive bursts of spark and flame. The impact smashed them backward and knocked their weapons from their hands.

Mystic Red’s staff flew through the air and shimmered as it depowered back into its Power Saber form.

The Red Ultimate Ranger leapt through the air, grabbed his saber, and angled his decent towards the monster, as did the other Rangers.

They landed one-by-one while chopping the monster, forcing him several steps backward.

The Red Ultimate Ranger pressed forward. He slashed and hacked the monster with bursts of spark. Then, he chopped towards the monster’s head. But the monster used his forearm to block the blow.

The Red Ranger slashed the monster’s arm aside and jump-kicked him; the impact bashed him off his feet, and he crashed and skid across the street.

The Rangers regrouped.

“Let’s finish him off,” the Red Ranger said.

They slid their Ultimate Ranger Keys into their sabers and locked the keys into position. Their swords ebbed and pulsed with power as they stepped into fighting stances.

The blades spoke the command: “FIIIIIINAL WAAAVE!”

They swung their swords and fired blades of energy that slashed through the monster with massive bursts of spark. Secondary explosions tore through his body as he collapsed and burst into flames.

***

Kiva leaned against a building and breathed heavily. His color dimmed as his skin cracked and pealed.

The rangers walked towards the Rider, and Tyler leaned down next to him.

Kiva looked up, his eyes dimmed. “You’re…Rangers.”

Tyler nodded. “And what are you?”

“Kiva,” he said. “A Kamen Rider…”

Seth crossed his arms over his chest. “What do you know about the Armada?”

Kiva did not hear the question. “You have…the Keys. Your Ranger Keys. How?”

Kira knitted her brow. “What do you know about our Keys?”

“They’re the only chance of saving…everything,” Kiva said. “Reality is broken. Space. Time. All of it.”

Tyler nodded. “We know. We’ve been trying to find out how to fix it.”

“Your Keys will show you the answers,” Kiva said. “You can use them to unlock time shards. Reality fragments. In doing so…you will learn all that you need.”

“OK then…How do we unlock these time shards?” Seth asked.

“…I don’t know.”

Mat snorted. “That’s not exactly helpful.”

“What can you tell us about the Shattering?” Tyler asked. “How did this happen in the first place?”

“The ultimate betrayal…” Kiva whispered. “Use your Keys. Unlock the time shards. And you will find your answers…”

His eyes dimmed to gray, and his skin drained of color.

With his final breath, he whispered a name: “Rachel…”

***

The rangers regrouped in the Legacy Galleon. Tyler sat in his chair and leaned back. He pulled out his Ultimate Red Ranger Key and flipped it between his fingers.

Mat paced anxiously. “So, we risked our butts fighting a bajillion Armada ships and cronies for nothing.”

“I wouldn’t say it was a risk,” Tyler said as he kept his eyes on his Ranger Key.

“That’s not at all surprising,” Mat said.

Seth leaned against the wall and crossed his arms over his chest. “What Kiva said, about using our Keys to unlock these time fragments…Do we believe him…?”

“What do you remember?” Tyler asked, his eyes still on his Key. “All of you?”

“From before the Shattering?” Kym asked. “Nothing. None of us do. You know that…”

Tyler nodded. “We don’t know anything about our past, or how space-time shattered.”

Mat arced an eyebrow. “Riiiight. We’ve established that several times. Where are you going with this?”

He tightened his grip on his Key. “I remembered something. When I got this Key.”

“Remembered what?” Kym asked.

Tyler didn’t answer. He preferred to keep his thoughts and past a secret.

After he received his Key, he saw a glimpse of his life before the Shattering. Or possibly…his death.

“Tyler!” Tommy Oliver shouted as he shook his son’s body. “Tyler, get up! Come on…Come on, buddy, get up…”

Tommy looked up and glared. “You…You did this…”

He flashed with red energy and morphed into the armor of the Dragon Ranger of the Heaven Fire Star.


“It doesn’t matter,” Tyler said. He flipped his Key and stuck it in his belt.

He stood and opened a chest, where they kept the rest of their Ranger Keys. He reached in and shuffled the Keys, as he would a chest of gold.

“I think he was right. We use these Keys. We find the Ultimate Secret. Then our work is done,” Tyler said.

“It’s that easy?” Kira asked skeptically.

Tyler smirked. “I doubt that. I doubt that very much.”

He closed the chest.

***

A lone figure crouched on a ruined rooftop and watched the Legacy Galleon leave Earth’s atmosphere.

He waited, and then lowered his head.

Few knew the stranger. Those who did called him Decade: Destroyer of Worlds.

So we're going to get the last few chapters of New Gen uploaded alongside the start of Gokaiger. Interesting choice...

I'm still wondering about the origins of these Legendary Rangers. Pulled from different timelines and dimensions? Aged up forcefully by the end of the world? So many options...

Yeah, I didn't want to wait. The Marvel Secret Wars storyline really has me motivated to crank out Gokaiger chapters because of the similarities (coincidental. I've had the start of Gokaiger in mind for quite some time. But, of course, now that Secret Wars has come out, I do want to use some of those ideas).

You'll learn more about the Legendary Rangers as the story progresses. I will say there is no one answer.

Anyway, I'll have a New Gen chapter up this weekend of next week, then have Gokaiger up the week after (I have the first three Gokaiger chapters written, so this gives me some more time to focus on the final chapters of ToQger, RPM and Magi).

Love the cast picture. Wouldn't it have made more sense to make Rocky's son Blue, Adam's Green, Billy's Yellow and Kim's Pink? And does this mean Kira and Tyler are brother and sister, or half brother and sister since Kim was Tyler's mom?

Also, THANK YOU for having the first Legendary morph be Mighty Morphin, as it should have been in the show.

Also, THANK YOU for having the first Legendary morph be Mighty Morphin, as it should have been in the show.
Thanks, and good question! I concerned myself more with matching personalities than colors. A son of Rocky's would be more like Doc, a son of Adam's would be more like Joe, etc. So none of the colors really match, accept for Tyler as Red.

And yes, it was a given I had their first Legendary Morph be Mighty Morphin, unlike in Super Megafarce.

I'm curious on how your going to go with the Silver ranger. Will he be a original character who joins the group, or will he be another offspring from the original team. I know Trini's dead, but I'd think Zack's child would be great as the sixth ranger. And also Jason's Child since we haven't heard from him since the Champion Saga.

Plot twist, because time and space is broken, the Silver Ranger is actually both Jason and Zack's kids merged, creating a girl named Trini Scott-Taylor...

OK, crazy times over. In all seriousness though, I am still wondering how these guys even came into being, since it's (presumably) not been long enough for them to age normally, nor did I even think the others had kids yet. Then again, time and space are broken, so there's that >_>

Yeah that's a "weird" possibility. But since time and space are broken, we could have cameo's from the other rangers in their prime (especially the one's that died during the Champion Saga).

Thanks for the comment! I will probably make the Silver Ranger's story simple. I have a few ideas and just need to pick one.

I will say, though, that I know what I am doing for Basco. I'm going to keep the Gokaiger plot thread of him being a former partner of the Red Ranger. That will make an interesting parallel between Tyler and Basco and Tommy and Billy (and we will learn more about Tommy and Billy's feud through the flashbacks during that arc).

Rare straight answer: No Trini Scott-Taylor.

Time and space are broken, so the Ultimate Power Rangers each could have come from the future, or alternate futures, etc. There's no timeline now, it's just a shattered mess. We'll explore this more and more pretty much every chapter.

You are correct that, except for Tommy and Kim, none of the other Rangers had children as of UPR New Gen Year Five.

Yes to cameos from the other Rangers in their prime. Not just cameos, but a few Tie-Ins featuring some of those characters (but they won't have their powers...).

Chapter 02- Ultimate Legacy: The Worth of this Planet

The Legacy Galleon flew through a reality storm that battered its hull and singed its armor. The impact nearly knocked the rangers to the floor of their cockpit.

“This again?” Mat asked. “Really?”

Tyler said nothing. He snapped his wheel, and the ship throttled through the edge of the storm.

Kym sighed with relief when they made it to safety. “Thank god…”

“I’m pretty sure God hates us,” Mat said.

The ship swerved to port and faced a planet: An Earth.

“Again?” Kira asked.

“Is it the same one?” Seth asked.

Tyler looked at a readout next to his wheel. “No…it’s different.”

“And I suppose we’re landing there,” Mat said, less than enthused.

“Look on the bright side,” Kym said. “No Armada-”

Mat shushed her. “Please don’t jinx it.”

An alarm beeped on Tyler’s console.

“Aaaaaand you jinxed it,” Mat said.

***

The rangers moved into the main crew hold. Mat walked to a small control pedestal and pulled up an image on the main monitor. The image showed an Armada fleet.

“They’re persistent little buggers,” Mat said. “Persistent and annoying. They’re in a holding pattern between the moon and Earth.”

“They don’t look like they’re going anywhere anytime soon…” Kira said.

“What to do, what to do,” said the rangers’ bird-like droid, Navi.

Navi stood on a pedestal above Tyler’s chair. Weeks ago, Mat had salvaged the droid, originally called Takku, and rebuilt him.

Kym looked through the nearest viewport. “I hope the people there are OK…If there are people.”

“It doesn’t matter,” Seth said.

Kira nodded. “Right. It’s not like we can save the universe one planet at a time. We need to find the Ultimate Secret. Of course, every time we try to do that….we get caught up in a fight. It’s no wonder the Armada has its eyes on us…”

“We’ll just have to find what we need and leave,” Tyler said casually.

“If it’s here,” Seth said.

“If it’s not, we still leave,” Tyler said. He looked to Navi, the droid who originally told them about the Ultimate Secret’s connection with Earth, without knowing the specifics. “Bird, do your…vision-telling thing.”

“I’m not a bird! I’m Navi!” the droid said.

“Just do it,” Tyler said.

Navi snapped open his wings and fluttered off his pedestal. “Tresa Navi-gai-to!

The droid shot up and bashed against the ceiling. He fluttered downward, as if in a daze.

“A human in black…of magick…will tell you something…useful,” he said as he landed on his pedestal. “That’s all.”

Seth shook his head. “What’s that even mean?”

“That’s…obscure,” Kira said.

“I was going to say useless,” Mat said. “But a lead’s a lead. I’ll take pretty much anything I can get at this point.”

“A person in black,” Kym said as she looked out the viewport. “I wonder who we’re looking for…”

***

The rangers landed on an Earth that looked normal, between 2001 and 2010 AD, not that they could tell. Not really.

“Huh…” Mat said as he watched people go about their daily lives. “Weird…”

“What?” Kym asked. “Everything seems normal.”

“That’s what’s weird,” Mat said.

Dozens of people moved about the city plaza, and many seemed to wear black. Nuns. Men in suits. Teens in slick jackets.

Kira shook her head. “How are we supposed to find the right person?”

Mat shrugged. “We could just start asking. That wouldn’t be awkward at all.”

“Hey…” a voice said from nearby. “You’re Rangers…aren’t you?”

They turned to see a 13-year-old boy: An alternate version of Teddy Oliver, younger brother of Tommy Oliver through adoption, and the former Red Samurai Ranger. The boy wore a black jacket and rode on a bicycle.

“You know us?” Seth asked skeptically. “You shouldn’t…”

Most people barely understood the nature of their existence in the shattered realities, let alone possessed the ability to recognize people from outside their reality fragments.

“I just…” Teddy said. “I just do.”

Teddy dropped his bicycle and walked towards the rangers. “I think I saw you…somewhere else. You used the Keys…the Power Rangers. Samurai Rangers. Mystic Rangers.”

“Our Ranger Keys?” Kym asked.

Tyler pulled out his Mystic, Samurai, and Battle Task Force keys. “You saw us use these? You weren’t even there to-”

Teddy snatched the Samurai Red key and kicked Tyler backward.

The boy ran to his bike and hopped on. “You left. Just like you’ll leave again. You wouldn’t even stand up to the Armada!”

“What the hell’s wrong with him?” Mat asked.

“He’s Fragged,” Seth said, a term used to describe people whose minds shifted back and forth between the past, present, future and alternate realities.

Teddy sped away on his bike.

Tyler smirked. “It’s been a while since I’ve had a good chase.”

Tyler ran after the boy.

“Tyler, wait!” Kym shouted as she followed.

***

Tyler and Kym dashed around a corner that seemed to shift in time. The streets degraded. Grass and weeds grew through cracks in the concrete. The city looked as if in ruin.

A Flux World, they called it: A world that fluctuated between the past, present and future.

The rangers barely noticed. They experienced these occurrences often as part of their normal lives.

Tyler stopped when he noticed Kym behind him. He lowered his shoulders with a silent sigh. “Why are you following me, Kym?”

“I’m worried,” she said. “I don’t want you to hurt that kid.”

“You think I’d do that?” Tyler asked.

“I…” Kym hesitated. “I don’t know. I’m following you because…I don’t know.”

Tyler rolled his eyes. “Fine…do what you want.”

“Fine,” she said as she followed Tyler after the boy.

***

Thirteen-year-old Teddy Oliver pedaled as fast as he could. He felt drawn to the Samurai Red Key, as if it belonged to him somehow.

His mind raced in a panic. The Machines. The Gedoushuu. Sauron. The Mogralord. N’ma…N’ma…

The final name threw him into a panic. What did it mean?

He skid to a halt when he saw Tyler standing on a pedestrian bridge above the street. The ranger stood casually with his arms crossed over his chest.

“Hey kid,” he shouted. Tyler leapt to the street and extended his hand. “I’ll take that Key back.”

“Why?” Teddy asked. “It’s not like you’ll use it to protect us. Right?”

“Not really, no,” Tyler said. “We’re thinking big picture.”

Kym joined Tyler on the street.

Teddy took several steps back while clutching the Ranger Key.

“This key…” Teddy said. “It doesn’t even belong to you. It belonged to the Earth. To its champions.”

“I don’t care who it belonged to,” Tyler said. “It’s mine now. The person who saved my life trusted me with it. I need it…to keep my promise.”

“That’s not my problem…” Teddy whispered. “I have my own reasons for needing this key. For fighting the Armada.”

“You can’t…” Kym said softly.

“Why do you want to fight so badly, anyway?” Tyler asked.

Teddy shook his head. “I’m not…” His mind scattered. “My friends. My brother…they died in the Legend War.”

Tyler recognized the name…

Weeks after waking in the Shattering, Tyler fought a group of X-Borgs on a support beam. Explosions flared around him as he flipped a grunt from the beam and punched a soldier’s gut.

An X-Borg chopped its staff and bashed Tyler to his knees. The grunt lifted its staff to strike again.

But a red-clad figure dashed past the X-Borg and cut him down. The figure, a Ranger, slashed through X-Borgs with bursts of spark. His blade tore through their bodies and scattered them to pieces.

Another wave of X-Borgs dropped onto the support beam. The Red Ranger stood between the X-Borgs and Tyler, keeping his back to the teen.

“You’re not done yet, Tyler,” he said. “Your journey’s just started.”

The Red Ranger turned, crouched next to Tyler, and lifted a treasure chest. “These belong to you now. Use them to fight, and find the Ultimate Secret. The Final Prophecy.”

The chest contained the Ranger Keys.

The Red Ranger pushed the chest into Tyler’s hands. “Do you understand? You’ll take your place…someday…in the Great Legend War.”

The Red Ranger stood, held his sword back, and charged towards the X-Borgs.

Tyler climbed to his feet. He watched the Red Ranger hack and slash through dozens of X-Borgs. Explosions erupted across the support beam and engulfed the Ranger, along with his opponents.

The shockwave hurled Tyler off his feet.


Teddy shook his head. “I don’t want to see it anymore,” he said. “People getting killed...”

Tyler knitted his brow and felt a pang of guilt. He focused his life on finding the Ultimate Secret, never giving much thought to the people trapped within the shattered realities.

Suddenly, a wave of Armada ships passed over the city.

Teddy knitted his brow and ran towards the ships.

“Teddy, wait!” Kym asked.

“His name…” Tyler asked. “How did you know his name?”

“I…” Kym shook her head. “I don’t know.”

The Armada dropped dozens of X-Borgs onto the streets.

***

Seth, Mat and Kira watched the Armada ships from a distance.

“They’re back…” Seth said coldly.

“Not again…” Mat said as he cowered behind Kira. He placed his hands on her shoulders. “What’ll we do? Running sounds good. Can we run?”

Kira swatted his hands away. “For now, let’s find Tyler and Kym.”

***

The X-Borgs dropped to the streets alongside an Action Commander, Bongon. Gray armor covered the creature’s bulky green body, with tendrils and tentacles snaking from its face, arms and legs. The villain carried a green, organic shoulder cannon.



Bongon waved his cannon and fired bursts of energy that blasted through buildings with clouds of rubble and debris.

The creature laughed with madness. “This feels! So! Good!”

Ragged citizens screamed and ran with panic. X-Borgs chased after them and opened fire with their staff cannons. The blasts tore through the helpless people, whipping them off their feet.

Teddy ran to the scene and gripped the Samurai Red Key. Tyler and Kym followed.

Tyler pulled out his morpher — and handed it to Teddy.

Teddy arced an eyebrow, surprised.

“You said you wanted to fight, right?” Tyler asked.

“Tyler…” Kym cautioned.

Tyler ignored her. “If you beat them, you can keep the key. If you don’t, you keep nothing. Got it?”

“Tyler,” Kym said. “That’s ridiculous. You can’t-”

Teddy took the morpher. He inserted the key and turned. “SAAAAMURAI RANGERS!”

Energy flashed around him as he morphed into Samurai Red.



Samurai Red looked down at his hands. “I…I did it!”

The Red Ranger unsheathed his sword and charged to attack.

“Teddy…” Kym started after him, but Tyler grabbed her arm.

“Let him go,” Tyler said.

Samurai Red dashed past two grunts while parrying their staffs; he turned and cut them down with bursts of spark. He spun to his side and side-kicked a grunt, then slashed upward with a burst of spark.

The Red Ranger charged through the enemy ranks, parrying and blocking their blows, and slashing them down with his sword. He swung the blade through quick and fluid patterns, hacking through their limbs, bodies and weapons.

The X-Borgs tried to surround the Red Ranger. But he twisted and turned through the group while swinging his sword and slashing through the grunts left and right.

A group of five X-Borgs pounced towards Samurai Red from ahead. The Red Ranger charged forward and cut a grunt down with each step.

Kym and Tyler watched from nearby.

“You think he’ll be OK?” Kym asked.

“Who knows,” Tyler said.

Seth and the others ran to the scene and regrouped with their teammates.

“What’s going on?” Mat asked.

Kira knitted her brow. “Who’s that?”

Seth shook his head with disbelief. “The boy who stole the Ranger Key…”

Samurai Red spun and swung through a wide arc that slashed three grunts, whipping them back with bursts of spark.

The Red Ranger hopped forward and chopped his sword through a grunt’s chest, driving the grunt to the ground with a burst of spark.

Samurai Red cut the last X-Borg down.

He turned his attention towards the Action Commander, charged, and lunged with a chop.

But Bongon blocked and grabbed the Red Ranger’s sword. “Looks like you don’t know your place.”

The monster tossed the boy aside. He crashed and tumbled across the street.

Bongon stalked towards the fallen Ranger.

Slowly, Samurai Red climbed to his feet. He lunged with a chop. But the monster blocked, kicked the Ranger’s gut, and bashed the back of his neck. The blow sent him staggering forward.

Bongon stomped the fallen Ranger’s back, lifted him by the neck, and kneed his gut with bursts of spark.

The monster hurled the boy aside. He smashed against the side of a building and crashed to the ground. The impact knocked him from his armor with a flash of red light.

The morpher and Samurai Red key fell and skipped across the street.

Bongon laughed and walked away.

Kym ran to Teddy’s side and leaned next to him. “Are you okay…?”

Teddy shook his head. “It’s no use…I’m not strong enough. I can’t…I can’t protect the Earth.”

“So you finally get it?” Tyler asked as he picked up his morpher and key. “You want to protect the planet? Find a different way to do it.”

“How?” Teddy asked.

“Figure it out yourself,” Tyler said as he started to walk away. He stopped and looked over his shoulder. “Hey…The people here…Most of them don’t even understand what’s happening. They’re Fragged. Echoes. Is this place even worth protecting?”

“It is,” Teddy said.

“Why?” Tyler asked.

Teddy hesitated. “If you’re really Rangers…You should figure that out yourselves.”

Tyler smirked. “Maybe we’ll do that…”

The ranger walked away as his teammates joined him.

***

Bongon blasted through streets that looked like the setting of a 1950s movie.

Citizens ran and screamed with panic as the monster opened fire. X-Borgs and Zergs joined the monster, who laughed with joy at the destruction he caused.

Nearby, Tyler and his teammates walked to the scene.

Bongon looked to the warriors. “You…the wanted renegades. What are you doing here?”

“Looking for something,” Tyler said as he and his teammates armed their morphers and Ranger Keys.

“It’s morphin’ time!” Tyler shouted. Together they called out: “Ultimate Transform!”

They inserted their Ranger Keys into their morphers, which called out: “POOOOOWER RANGERS!”

They morphed into their Ranger forms and stepped into fighting poses.

“Ultimate Red Ranger.”

“Ultimate Blue Ranger.”

“Ultimate Green Ranger.”

“Ultimate Yellow Ranger.”

“Ultimate Pink Ranger.”

“Ultimate Task Force…” They called out together: “Power Rangers!”

The Rangers armed their swords and blasters.

“Let’s make this showy,” the Red Ranger said.

He opened fire; bullets blasted through X-Borgs with bursts of spark.

The Rangers charged with guns blazing. Their bullets tore through the cybernetic soldiers, puncturing through their armor and exploding within their circuitry.

They smashed through the enemy lines with blades slashing, tearing through X-Borgs with bursts of spark.

The Red Ranger hacked two grunts aside and blasted an X-Borg at point-blank range.

The Blue Ranger stabbed through an X-Borg’s gut, pressed forward, and punctured through a second grunt. He whipped his blade free, ripping the two grunts apart.

“Kym!” the Blue Ranger shouted to his teammate.

The Pink Ranger tossed him her sword, and she tossed him his blaster. The Pink Ranger caught the blaster and spun, firing bullets that ripped through X-Borgs that tried to surround her.

A group of X-Borgs armed their staffs like cannons and fired at the Green Ranger. The Ranger dove aside as their blasts sparked around him.

The Green Ranger rolled into a crouched position.

“Mat!” the Yellow Ranger shouted to him.

The Yellow Ranger tossed him her blaster, and he tossed her his sword.

The Green Ranger caught the blaster and fired volleys of bullets that blasted through a wave of X-Borgs.

The Yellow Ranger caught the sword and dual-wielded through a wave of X-Borgs. She hacked and slashed, tearing them apart as she pushed through their ranks.

Nearby the Red Ranger stabbed through an X-Borg’s chest.

A trio of Zergs aimed at the Ranger and fired bolts of blue energy.

The Red Ranger grabbed the X-Borg and used him as a shield. The bolts blasted the X-Borg with massive bursts of spark.

The Red Ranger tossed the X-Borg aside and blasted the Zergs. His bullets sparked against their armor and knocked them several steps back.

The rest of the Rangers regrouped around their leader. The team inserted Ranger Keys into their weapons and stepped back.

The keys and weapons pulsed with power as they energized: “FIIIIIINAL WAAAAAVE!”

The Pink Ranger and Yellow Ranger fired energized bullets that blasted through a Zerg. The Blue Ranger and Yellow Ranger dashed forward and slashed through streaks of energy that tore through a grunt.

Then, the Red Ranger fired an energized bullet, and then slashed his sword. The blade fired a wave of energy that splashed against the bullet, forming a surging energy pulse that tore through the soldier with massive bursts of spark.

The three Zergs collapsed and exploded into flames and shrapnel.

Suddenly, Bongon stomped towards the Rangers and fired a volley of missiles. The Rangers dove aside as they slashed the missiles with bursts of spark.

The general laughed as he stalked towards his opponents.

“Don’t be so cocky, renegades…I’m not as easy to beat as Zergs!”

The monster fired a volley of missiles that streaked towards the Rangers.

They quickly armed a set of Ranger Keys.

“SPD! Emergency!” They inserted their keys into their morphers: “DEEEEEECA RANGERS!”



They morphed into the DECA Rangers, armed their blasters, and fired at the missiles. The Rangers blasted the projectiles from the air with massive bursts of spark and flame.

When the last bullet exploded, they turned to Bongon and opened fire. They blasted the monster with bursts of spark that knocked him several steps backward.

The monster grumbled with annoyance and armed a pair of fist blades. “I’m not done yet…I can do more than just shoot!”

He charged to attack.

The Rangers armed another set of Ranger Keys.

“Ninjetti! Change!” They inserted their keys into their morphers and shifted form with bursts of energy. Their morphers shouted: “HUUUUUURRICANE TASK FORCE!”

They transformed into the Hurricane Task Force Power Rangers: Hurricane Red, Hurricane Yellow, Hurricane Blue, Crimson Thunder and Navy Thunder.



They unsheathed their blades and dashed through blurs of motion. They past Bongon while slashing the monster with bursts of spark. They moved faster than sight and hacked the monster, cutting his armor and piercing his flesh, each blow sparking on impact.

The Rangers landed as secondary explosions tore through the monster. But he stood his ground.

The team armed Red Ranger Keys.

“SAAAAAMURAI RANGERS!” Tyler shifted into Samurai Red.

“GAAAAAAO RANGERS!” Seth shifted into Gao Red.

“SEEEEEERAPH RANGERS!” Mat shifted into Seraph Red.

“JUUUUUUUNGLE FURY!” Kira shifted into Jungle Fury Red.

“MYYYYYSTIC RANGERS!” Kym shifted into Mystic Red.



Samurai Red lifted his sword. “This is going to hurt…”

Mystic Red and Red Seraph moved in.

Mystic Red thrust her staff. “Magi Magika!

Red Seraph slid a card into his morpher and snapped it shut. “Tensou!

Mystic Red fired a wave of flame, and Red Seraph fired a burst of wind that intensified the flame. The super-heated blast washed over the monster with massive bursts of spark that tore his body.

Gao Red and Jungle Fury Red pounced through the flames and launched at the monster with a flurry of punches and kicks. They moved like animals, bashing the monster back a step with each blow.

They stepped aside, and Samurai Red pounced between them. He swung through streaks of fiery energy that ripped through the monster with massive bursts of spark.

Bongon collapsed, and his body exploded into a sphere of flame.

The Rangers turned and walked away, as Samurai Red held his blade casually over his shoulder.

***

The rangers returned to the Legacy Galleon, which flew above the city.

Mat and Kira looked out the viewport as the sun set in the distance.

“Nice…” Mat said at the sight of the setting sun. “That’s not something you see much of these days…”

Kira nodded. “I wonder what happened to that boy?”

“Who knows…” Seth said as he leaned back on the couch.

Kym walked towards them. “You know…what Tyler did? I think in his own way…he was looking out for Teddy.”

Seth arced an eyebrow. “By throwing him into a fight?”

“I did say ‘in his own way,’” Kym said. “I don’t know. It’s hard to put my finger on. But it’s almost like Tyler knew him. Like we all did, maybe.”

“Whether we did or not, he wasn’t any help,” Seth said. He looked to Navi. “Was your prediction wrong?”

Navi fluttered his robotic wings. “What? No, I’m never wrong. I’m Navi.”

***

Tyler stood on the bow of his ship and crossed his arms over his chest. He thought of Teddy, and a fragment of memory flashed through his mind.

“Samurai Scribe! Ha!” Energy flashed around Teddy and his teammates as they morphed into their armor.

They joined dozens of other Rangers and champions and leapt into battle.


Tyler lowered his head and looked to the Samurai Red Key. Teddy…I think I watched you die.

---To be continued…Chapter 03


Teddy Oliver at age 13. Younger brother of Tommy Oliver by adoption. Became the Red Samurai Ranger at age 18.

It was funny, so thanks! And I appreciate the high hopes for the season. I'm really in the mood to dive into it, I also loved Gokaiger and want to keep as many of those elements as possible, while really using the massive UPR mythos I've put together, and exploring the whole time-and-space are shattered concept.

For those of you who didn't get the sneak peak I posted briefly, Y3 features Mystic Force and Nick. We will learn Nick's true origin, Koragg's backstory, and how Udonna came to Briarwood.

No to Kou himself. Kou's kid would certainly make sense. Or...Dr. Doom! Just kidding. Or am I...? Yes.

Now be serious. If you were going to make Silver a Marvel character, you'd use a human version of Uata the Watcher. Somebody who could have watched the long war and grown into a fan of the Rangers.

Of course what I want to see you do is have the Rangers discover that despite having the appearances of teams that used mind, spirit, soul etc, they are only drawing from the body. Actually have it that part of their interacting with the previous teams is unlocking things like chi so they can use the powers to their fullest. Have the transformation device act as the means to draw on the different powers as needed, but default to body if they don't know enough to wield them correctly (time for that laptop Maya's grandfather had to make a reappearance.. or Billy's files)
