Scorpion Rain

Hi! First off, to anybody reading this, thank you for showing interest and taking the time to read my work. This is my first time posting a fanfic, so I hope you enjoy it .

Basically, I've always been interested in the fabled "Scorpion Rain" hoax that was to take place between Zeo & Turbo. In essence, here is my version of the story. I tried to keep in as much of the hoax's story as possible as well as working in my own ideas. I wrote it in a script program as if it was a real episode of Zeo and tried to keep the same type of language and dramatization that was in the series at the time. It's split into 2 "episodes". Part 2 is done, but has to be translated into a different program before I can put it up here. It should be up either later tonight or tomorrow. Enjoy!

==========================================================


POWER RANGERS ZEO: SCORPION RAIN PART 1

INT. ERNIE'S JUICE BAR

Tommy is in the middle of a set of lifts on the bench press. Adam and Rocky are sparring in the background. Kat walks in and heads for Tommy as he puts the weights up.

KAT: Hi, Tommy!

TOMMY: Hey, Kat! What’s going on?

KAT: Aren’t you suppose to have a spotter when you work out?

TOMMY: Yeah, Jason was suppose to be here, but he never showed.

Kat frowns and lowers her head.

KAT: How is he doing?

TOMMY: As well as can be expected. Losing the Gold Ranger powers was tough for him. We just need to give him some time to sort things out. He’ll be okay.

Tommy stands up and walks with Kat to a table.

KAT: I’m sure you’re right.

TOMMY: Yeah. I don’t know anyone tougher than Jas. Hey! What do you have there?

Kat looks at the flyer in her hands.

KAT: Oh, just a flyer for a museum class. It’s on paleontology. You want to come? I think you’d enjoy it.

TOMMY: Me and Paleontology? Heh. Yeah, I’ll get to that right after my racing class.

KAT: A simple “not interested” would suffice.

Jason walks in, lost in thought.

ERNIE: Hey, Jason! How are you doing?

JASON: What? Oh. Hey, Ernie.

Adam notices Jason and points him out to Rocky. The two walk over to him.

ADAM: Hey, Jason. We haven’t seen you around much lately.

JASON: Sorry about that. I’ve been busy.

ROCKY: Ah! Are you spending a lot of time with Emily?

JASON: Uh… here and there. I saw her the other day.

ADAM: Rocky and I were just sparring a little. You want to join us?

JASON: Thanks for the offer, guys, but I’ve got to go. I’ve got… things to do.

ROCKY: You just got here

JASON: Later!

Jason leaves. Tommy and Kat come up to Rocky and Adam.

TOMMY: What was that all about?

ADAM: I don’t know. He’s seems pretty down.

KAT: Maybe we can do something to cheer him up.

ROCKY: Yeah! It’s been awhile since we’ve had a party!

TOMMY: That’s a great idea! And I know exactly who to invite.

KAT: So, what should we do until then?

TOMMY: Just hang tight. We’ll do it this weekend. You guys get the food. I’m going to make some calls.

Tommy heads off to where Jason went.

ADAM: See you, Tommy!

KAT: I just hope things stay quiet until we get this party over.

ROCKY: We haven’t heard a word out of Mondo and Machina since the last battle. Maybe they’ve left for good.

ADAM: We should be so lucky.


DISSOLVE TO:

INT. LORD ZEDD'S PALACE

Lord Zedd sits in his thrown. Rita, Goldar, Rito, Squatt, Baboo, and Finster fill the foreground with various putties running around in the background.

LORD ZEDD: It’s great to be back! With that pile of bolts, King Mondo, out of the way, there will be nothing that can stand in the way of my plans to destroy the Power Rangers and their precious planet!

RITA REPULSA: You’re all talk, Zeddie! So what if we have our castle back? What’s so different between now and the years we fought the Rangers before the Machine Empire showed up?

Zedd leaps to his feet, posing menacingly.

LORD ZEDD: I’ll tell you what’s different, my disgusting bride. I’m on a roll!! Mondo and his family have retreated to repair themselves, I have my palace back, and now I will once again have access to my greatest weapon! A weapon the Power Rangers cannot defeat!!!

GOLDAR: You mean you’re going to revive…?

LORD ZEDD: That’s right, Goldar. Even as we speak, it is being uncovered and recharged. Soon, it will be at full power and Serpenterra will live again!!!

CUT TO:

EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

Jason walks along the sidewalk, looking around at the trees. Again, lost in thought. Tommy jogs up from behind to greet him.

TOMMY: Hey, Jas! I haven’t seen you in a few days.

JASON: Oh! Hey, Tommy. What’s going on?

TOMMY: Well, if you’re not too busy, I was thinking you’d like to get together with the guys and have some fun this afternoon.

JASON: Sounds good, bro. But… I don’t know…

TOMMY: You’ve been in a funk for weeks, man. Do you want to talk about it?

JASON: … I guess you’d be the only person who could relate. It’s about losing the Gold Ranger powers. It’s just that… being a Ranger was such a major part of my life. When I left before, it was on my own terms. I made the choice to give up the power. But this time… I feel like a part of me is missing. This big chapter in my life has ended without any real sense of closure. I didn’t even get to help you guys fight Mondo in that last battle.

TOMMY: Hey, I know where you’re coming from. When I lost the Green Ranger power, I felt empty and had to go somewhere and regroup. It was a difficult time. But you know what got me through it?

JASON: What?

TOMMY: My friends… being there for me and letting me know that I was just as strong as I ever was, with or without Ranger powers.

Jason nods and smiles.

JASON: You’re right. Thanks, Tommy.

TOMMY: Anytime. Now, how about that get together?

JASON: Wild horses couldn’t keep me away, man.

Just then, a group of cogs teleport into the park,
running around chaotically. Jason and Tommy see them
and poise for battle.

TOMMY: Whoa! How about wild cogs?

JASON: I’ve been looking to burn off some energy.

TOMMY: Let’s do it!!

Tommy and Jason battle the cogs until they final disappear.

TOMMY: That was weird.

JASON: Yeah, they seemed sporadic; as if they were just running loose.

TOMMY: I guess if Mondo’s down for the count, the rest of the Machine Empire is falling apart.

JASON: Either that, or they’re afraid of something on the moon.

TOMMY: Aw man, I don’t even want to think about that. We better teleport to the Power Chamber.

JASON: Right.

Using their communicators, the two teleport out of the park.

CUT TO:

INT. POWER CHAMBER

Tommy and Jason arrive in the Chamber. The lights are off and everything is dark.

JASON: Hey! What happen to the lights?

Immediately, the lights pop on and the other rangers jump up, shouting "surprise!" Jason is amazed and is extremely excited to see everyone.

JASON: Hey! What’s going on? What’s the occasion?

TANYA: We figured you could use a little fun, Jason.

JASON: Aw, you guys are the best!

ZACK (OS): Figures. We go to all the trouble to get here and he hardly notices us.

Jason turns around and is amazed by the sight of the other four original Rangers. Zack, Billy, Trini, and Kimberly stand together smiling at Jason.

JASON: Zack! Kimberly! Billy! Trini! What are you guys doing here?!

TRINI: We got some time off from the Peace Convention and thought we’d check in on you.

BILLY: I was looking for an excuse to take a vacation from Aquitar.

KIMBERLY: Hey, how could I refuse the chance to get together with the best friends I ever had?

JASON: This is incredible!!

Jason turns to Tommy and points at him playfully accusing.

JASON: You! This is all your doing, isn’t it?

TOMMY: Hey, everyone helped.

ZORDON: I take it you are pleased, Jason?

JASON: I don’t remember the last time I was this pleased, Zordon.

ALPHA 5: Aiyaiyayiyai!! This is so exciting!

ROCKY: What are we waiting for? Alpha, hit the music and break out the food!

Music plays and we see a montage of scenes from the party with the ten teenagers interacting together.

We see Trini and Tanya talking

TANYA: That’s sounds like really amazing work you’re doing.

TRINI: Yes, it’s very rewarding.

Kat and Kimberly chat

KIMBERLY: So you and Tommy are…?

KAT: Yep. He’s great. You’re not jealous, are you?

Kimberly smiles teasingly

KIMBERLY: Jealous? No! You took my powers, my boyfriend… why would I be jealous?

Tommy comes up

TOMMY: I can’t tell you how disturbing it is to see you two talking to each other.

KIMBERLY: I’m just catching up on all the embarrassing things you’ve been doing since I’ve been gone.

TOMMY: Aw, man.

We see Zack and Adam dancing with Alpha

ADAM: I know exactly what you mean, Zack. The Black Ranger was completely under-appreciated.

ZACK: See? I knew you would get it. I’ve got this theory that…

ALPHA 5: Aiyaiyaiyaiyaiyaiyai! This dancing concept is too complex!!

BILLY: If you want, Alpha, I can write a program to assist you in your pattern movement efficiency.

ZACK: What’d you say, Billy?

TRINI: He can help Alpha dance better.

ZACK: Ah! Cool!

DISSOLVE TO:

INT. LORD ZEDD'S PALACE

Rita comes up to Zedd who sits on his thrown.

RITA REPULSA: Hey, Zeddie! We’ve finally cleared all the Machine Empire junk out of the castle.

LORD ZEDD: Excellent, my pet.

RITA REPULSA: And the rest of the cogs have been dumped on Earth.

LORD ZEDD: What?! You sent them to Earth? Now?! Serpenterra is nearly recharged and you do something that could alert the Rangers to our presence?! You imbecile!!

RITA REPULSA: Well excuse me! Who died and made you king?

LORD ZEDD: Where is Rito and the putties?

RITO: You rang, Ed?

LORD ZEDD: It’s Zedd, you bonehead!! And yes, I want you and Rita to find the cogs on Earth and destroy them without being seen by the Rangers.

RITO: Okie dokey!

GOLDAR: What about me, your highness?

LORD ZEDD: You will stay with me, Goldar. When Serpenterra is ready, I will need your help in piloting it to Earth and to the end of the Power Rangers!

GOLDAR: Yes, my lord.

CUT TO:

EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

Bulk and Skull saunter into the park wearing trench coats.

SKULL: Hey, Bulkie, what are we doing here? It’s Saturday. I want to watch cartoons!

BULK: Not today, numskull! We’ve had no duties of international intrigue since we left Detective Stone. So, we need to build up our reputations to earn some notice.

SKULL: Yeah!!…. How?

BULK: We’re detectives, Skull! And finally, we can solve the greatest mystery of all… the identities of the Power Rangers!

SKULL: This again? Bulkie, I just want to go home.

BULK: With Sherlock Bulkmeyer and Doctor Skullivitch on the case, no mystery will go unsolved. Just keep your eyes open for anything strange.

Rita, Rito, and the putties teleport into the park to hunt for cogs. Skull notices them and taps Bulk on the shoulder.

SKULL: Bbbbbbbbbbbulk… you mean… like that?

Bulk turns around and goes wide-eyed. The two back away and run off screaming.

RITO: Hey! I remember them!

Several cogs pass through some trees.

RITA REPULSA: Never mind those two! Get those cogs!

RITO: Oh! Right, sis. Go, you clay brains!!

CUT TO:

INT. POWER CHAMBER

The alarm in the chamber goes off, causing the 10 teenagers to halt their activities.

TOMMY: What’s going on?

ALPHA 5: Aiyaiyaiyaiyai! I don’t believe it!!

ZORDON: Rita and Rito are in Angel Grove park with a pack of putties and cogs.

JASON: That’s right! I forgot! Tommy and I ran into some cogs in the park earlier.

ADAM: It figures this would happen today.

ALPHA 5: Zordon, that’s not what the alarm is alerting us to!

BILLY: What do you mean, Alpha?

ALPHA 5: It’s Zedd! He’s on the moon and he’s recharging Serpenterra! Aiyaiyaiyai!

TOMMY: Aw man! Not Serpenterra!

TANYA: Great! How are we going to take care of Rita on Earth and Zedd on the moon?

TOMMY: We’ll have to split up. Alpha, try to contact Trey on Triphoria.

ZORDON: Wait, I have another idea, Tommy. Alpha, you know what to get.

ALPHA 5: Right away, Zordon.

KAT: What do you have in mind, Zordon?

ZORDON: This is indeed an emergency. The five of you cannot extinguish these two threats alone. You will need help. As you know, the dino power was overloaded and wiped out in your first battle with Rito. However, the power coins were undamaged. Alpha began working to recharge them while you were on your quest for Ninjor. But, when you gained the spirit of the animals, the dino power was unnecessary. But the coins are indeed partially charged.

JASON: Wait… are you saying…?

ZORDON: Yes, Jason. The power will not last long, but for a short time, I shall request that you, Zack, Billy, Kimberly, and Trini return to your duties, one last time, as Power Rangers.

KIMBERLY: No way!! Really?!

ZACK: Yeah! Slammin’!

BILLY: Affirmative. It would be nice to have one last battle as a Ranger.

TRINI: You can count on us.

JASON: This is great, Zordon!

Tommy walks over to Jason and puts his hand on his shoulder.

TOMMY: This is one heck of a day, isn’t it?

JASON: Just what the doctor ordered.

ZORDON: While Jason and the others face Rita in the park, the Zeo Rangers shall head to the moon and stop Serpenterra before he departs.

TOMMY: Right.

ALPHA 5: Here they are, Zordon.

Alpha holds up a special case which opens up to reveal the six dino morphers. Jason, Zack, Billy, Kimberly, and Trini each pick up their old morphers.

TOMMY: Good luck, Jas.

ZORDON: Go now, Rangers. And may the power protect you.

JASON: All right!! It’s morphin time!!

ZACK: Mastodon!

KIMBERLY: Pterodactyl

BILLY: Triceratops!

TRINI: Saber-Tooth Tiger!

JASON: Tyrannosaurus!

CUT TO:

INT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

The five Mighty Morphin' Rangers flip into the park and confront Rita and the putties.

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Back off, Rita!!

ZACK MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: The originals are back!!

BLUE MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Get off our planet!

YELLOW MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: ‘Cause we’re the Power Rangers!

PINK MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: And you’ll never be rid of us!!

RITA REPULSA: You five again?! I thought we destroyed you!! Arg!! Putties, get those teenagers!

The putties attack the Rangers.

INT. POWER CHAMBER

TOMMY: Man, it’s good to see them in action again.

KAT: Yeah, but we’ve got our own business to take care of.

TOMMY: Right. Everybody ready?

ADAM: Let’s do it, Tommy.

TOMMY: It’s Morphin’ Time!!

KAT: Zeo Ranger 1: Pink!

TANYA: Zeo Ranger 2: Yellow!

ROCKY: Zeo Ranger 3: Blue!

ADAM: Zeo Ranger 4: Green!

TOMMY: Zeo Ranger 5: Red!

The Zeo Rangers morph and stand ready.

ZORDON: Alpha, teleport them to the moon right away.

ALPHA 5: Yes, Zordon.

ZORDON: Good luck, Zeo Rangers.

The Zeo Rangers teleport out of the Chamber.

ALPHA 5: I hope they can do it. Aiyaiyaiyaiyai!

CUT TO:

INT. LORD ZEDD'S PALACE

The Zeo Rangers arrive at Rita's Castle.

RED ZEO RANGER: All right, guys. We’ve got to stop Zedd before he can power up Serpenterra.

ZEO RANGERS: Right!!

LORD ZEDD: You’re too late, Rangers!

The Zeo Rangers turn around to see Zedd up on a ledge
high up.

LORD ZEDD: Serpenterra is ready and soon your world will belong to the might of Lord Zedd!!!

PINK ZEO RANGER: We won’t let that happen!

LORD ZEDD: Tough talk, Pink Ranger! Tengas, keep these heroes busy!!

A squad of Tengas materialize and attack the Zeo Rangers.

YELLOW ZEO RANGER: What are these things?

GREEN ZEO RANGER: Old friends. Here’s a little advice. They’re not friendly.

BLUE ZEO RANGER: What happened to Zedd?

PINK ZEO RANGER: He’s gone!

RED ZEO RANGER: He must be heading for Serpenterra! Kat, follow me. You guys finish off the Tengas.

ZEO RANGERS: Right!!

Red & Pink Zeo rush off.

CUT TO:

EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

The Mighty Morphin Rangers battle the putties and the cogs.

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Man! These guys never give up!

BLACK MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: We can’t stop. The others are counting on us!

RITA REPULSA: Take this, Power Brats!!

Rita zaps the Rangers with her staff.

DISSOLVE TO:

INT. LORD ZEDD'S PALACE

Red & Pink Zeo rush into a room and stop.

RED ZEO RANGER: I… I think we lost him.

PINK ZEO RANGER: No! Look! Over there!

Pink Zeo points to an opening ahead of them where Serpenterra rests.

RED ZEO RANGER: That’s it! Hurry, Kat! It’s about to take off!

The two Rangers rush up to Serpenterra and pause, looking up at the Zord in front of them.

RED ZEO RANGER: Aw, man! That is one ugly zord!

PINK ZEO RANGER: Tommy, this way! There’s a door!

The two rush up a platform into Serpenterra before it closes and the Zord lifts off the ground.

INT. SERPENTERRA

RED ZEO RANGER: This is weird.

PINK ZEO RANGER: You can say that again.

RED ZEO RANGER: If we can find the control room, we should be able to shut down Serpenterra before it reaches Earth.

GOLDAR (OS): Not likely, Red Ranger.

Goldar step forward with Zedd behind him.

GOLDAR: You should not have come on board.

LORD ZEDD: This zord will be your final resting place.

Red Zeo calls upon the Zeo sword and begins battling with Goldar. Red Zeo gets the upper hand and pushes Goldar back. In anger, Goldar fires a blast at Red &
Pink Zeo, but they duck it and the blast explodes a control panel on the wall.

LORD ZEDD: Goldar, you fool! You’ve destroyed one of the circuit breakers! We’re going to crash!

RED ZEO RANGER: Thanks for the help, Goldar.

PINK ZEO RANGER: Tommy, what are we going to do?

RED ZEO RANGER: We better teleport.

Red & Pink try to teleport, but nothing happens.

PINK ZEO RANGER: Nothing’s happening!

RED ZEO RANGER: We must be moving too fast for the morphing grid to get a lock on us.

EXT. ANGEL GROVE

Serpenterra enters Earth's atmosphere and looms over Angel Grove, heading for the ocean.

The Mighty Morphin’ Rangers stop fighting and watch the Zord pass overhead.

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: It’s Serpenterra!

BLUE MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: It’s going down! The Zeo Rangers did it!

PINK MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: All right!!

ALPHA 5 (VO): Aiyaiyaiyaiyai! Rangers! Tommy and Kat are on board, but I can’t teleport them out!!

BLACK MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: You mean they’re on Serpenterra?!

YELLOW MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Oh no! What can we do??


INT. SERPENTERRA

LORD ZEDD: Goldar, quickly, follow me!

GOLDAR: Yes, my lord.

Zedd and Goldar rush off.

PINK ZEO RANGER: We’re going to crash!

RED ZEO RANGER: Kat, hold on to something!!

INT. ANGEL GROVE

Serpenterra crashes into ocean and sinks into the water. The Mighty Morphin’ rush up to the edge of a hill in the park and watch the zord sink.

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Tommy! Kat! NO!!!

FADE OUT.

To Be Continued.

Wow...excellent work! Not only do we learn how the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers regained their powers, but we get a glimpse into what happened between Zeo and Turbo! Very believable plot and dialogue...this script really works! Well done!

My only comments are:
-Shouldn't Kim and Tommy have had more of an interaction? I mean, all Kim did was send Tommy a note saying she's in love with someone else...I'd like to know what closure happened between that episode and "Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie."
-Adam must end up with the Black Power Coin to use in "Always A Chance," just in case you forgot.
-Good job remembering that Tanya had never met the Tengas--I'm impressed!
-SIX original morphers? Ooh...will more come out of that detail (like possibly an explanation of what happened to the Dragonzord...since Serpentera crashed into the ocean, maybe that's what will happen next!)

Anyways, you've clearly got everything under control. I hope you acknowledge all the issues I mentioned, but it's your story, and judging by how it's going so far, the end will be just as excellent as the first part. Thank you, and keep up the great work!

Ok, very well done. Now that I think of it, it strikes me odd that no one has ever done a Scorp rain fic before. meh. I loved the diolauge at the command center, that was good, especally the Kimberly/Kat/Tommy convo.

Unfortunetly, I must "slap you in the face" a bit

1. Billy can't be a power ranger. Not a big boo-boo, as many others do it too, and it's a vastly overlooked fact.

2. How do you explain the fact that the coins where still badly damaged in "Always a chance"?

3. #3 is more of a personal note then criticisim. I normaly don't read Script style Fics. But, whatever floats your boat.


Other then that, it all looks good. Can't wait to see more.

I think I may be able to respond to your queries:

1. Why not? He was the Blue MMPR before, and the only powers that he couldn't handle were the GOLD Ranger powers, not any ranger power at all.

2. Zordon said the coins were only good for another morph. The rangers will morph, and the coins will be charred. 'Nuff said.

3. I'm sorry it's not working for you, because I'm liking it a lot like this--it's sort of reading like an episode. I'm not insulting you--I'm just sorry that then fic isn't as appealing to you in script format. Too bad--to each his own.

If I misunderstood any #1, please correct me. Thanks!

Scorpion Rain part 2

Here's the 2nd part. Thanks for all the compliments so far. I'm glad people are enjoying it. Some of you figured out my schemes pretty quickly. Thanks to all who are reading! Enjoy the conclusion!

==========================================================


POWER RANGERS ZEO: SCORPION RAIN PART 2

NARRATOR: Previously on Zeo, Jason was depressed about losing the Gold Ranger powers, prompting Tommy to invite some old friends into town to cheer him up.

JASON: Zack! Kimberly! Billy! Trini! What are you guys doing here?!

NARRATOR: Meanwhile, Lord Zedd began recharging Serpenterra, planning to invade Earth once more.

LORD ZEDD: With that pile of bolts, King Mondo, out of the way, there will be nothing that can stand in the way of my plans to destroy the Power Rangers and their precious planet!

NARRATOR: Zedd sent Rita and her minions down to Earth to destroy the remains of the Machine Empire, prompting Zordon to reactivate the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers for one final battle.

ZORDON: The power will not last long, but for a short time, I shall request that you return to your duties, one last time, as Power Rangers.

NARRATOR: While the Mighty Morphin’ Rangers battle Rita on Earth, the Zeo Rangers fought on the moon to prevent Serpenterra’s return, leading to Kat and Tommy being trapped on board the menacing zord as it crashed into the ocean.

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Tommy! Kat! NO!!!

NARRATOR: Can the Mighty Morphin’ and Zeo Rangers stand together and end the threat of Zedd and Rita once and for all? Find out today on Power Rangers Zeo!!!

EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

Pink & Black MM Rangers hold back Red MM who is desperate to run off to the ocean and save his friends.

PINK MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Jason! Calm down!!

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Tommy! Kat! We’ve got to save them!!

BLACK MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: There’s nothing we can do! They can take care of themselves.

RITA REPULSA: Ahahah! How sad! Those two goody goodies have finally met their end! But don’t feel too bad. You’ll all be joining them shortly. Hahahahah!!

DISSOLVE TO:

INT. SERPENTERRA

Inside Serpenterra, water rushes into the insides, and the water level begins to fill up as Red & Pink Zeo stand on guard.

PINK ZEO RANGER: Tommy, what are we going to do?

RED ZEO RANGER: We’ve got to get out of here, but something’s interfering with our teleportation. Maybe Serpenterra’s made up of some sort of dense metal that we can’t get through.

PINK ZEO RANGER: We’ll have to swim for it.

RED ZEO RANGER: We’re sinking too fast. You might have a chance, but I don't have the training you have. I’d never make it to the surface in one breath.

PINK ZEO RANGER: Then, what do we do? I'm not leaving you behind.

RED ZEO RANGER: We’ve got one slim chance. If we’ve landed where I hope we’ve landed, we may be okay. When we get outside, follow me.

PINK ZEO RANGER: I trust you, Tommy.

Tommy pulls out his gun and blasts the door open.

CUT TO:

EXT. OCEAN

The two Zeo Rangers swim out of Serpenterra and Tommy heads downward. The two come across a dark solid object that they somehow enter.

INT. ZORD

RED ZEO RANGER: Aw man! I can’t believe that worked!

PINK ZEO RANGER: Where are we, Tommy?

RED ZEO RANGER: Kat, welcome to the Dragonzord.

PINK ZEO RANGER: This is the Dragonzord?! I don’t believe it! I’ve heard stories, but… wow.

RED ZEO RANGER: It’s been sitting here on the ocean floor since it’s last battle. From here, we can teleport back to the Power Chamber.

DISSOLVE TO:

INT. LORD ZEDD'S PALACE

The Zeo Rangers finish off the tengas which disappear.

BLUE ZEO RANGER: Well, that takes care of that.

YELLOW ZEO RANGER: What happened to Tommy and Kat?

GREEN ZEO RANGER: I haven’t seen them since they followed after Zedd.

BLUE ZEO RANGER: If they’re already gone, then there’s no reason for us to be here. Let’s teleport back to Earth.

ZEO RANGERS: Right!

The Zeo Rangers teleport away from the moon.

CUT TO:

EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

The Mighty Morphin Rangers battle the putties in the park while Rita watches.

RITA REPULSA: Finally, things are going our way!

RITO: This is pretty cool, sis. What’s next?

RITA REPULSA: Now that they’re tired out, we’ll use a monster to crush them once and for all! Finster!! Where’s my monster?

FINSTER: Coming, my queen. I did not have time to create a monster up to my usual standards, but this should do it.

Finster comes out with a hulking monster made up of orange rock, covered in spikes.

FINSTER: His name is Query and he has the power to…

RITA REPULSA: Never mind all that! Just get him out there.

Query rushes the Mighty Morphin Rangers, slashing them to the ground, one by one. The Zeo Rangers teleport into the scene.

RITA REPULSA: Arg! Not you three!

GREEN ZEO RANGER: We missed you too, Rita.

BLUE ZEO RANGER: You’ve overstayed your welcome, witch. Time to send you packing.

RITA REPULSA: Not this time, Power Brats! Magic wand, make my monster grow!!

Query grows and begins attempting to squash the Rangers.

DISSOLVE TO:

INT. POWER CHAMBER

Red & Pink Zeo teleport into the Chamber. They remove their helmets.

ALPHA 5: Aiyaiyaiyaiyai! You’re back!

ZORDON: It is good to see you both alive and well.

RED ZEO RANGER: Thanks Zordon, what’s the status report?

ZORDON: The Zeo Rangers have teleported into the park to aid the others. But they are under assault by another of Rita’s monsters. They need the Zeo Megazord right away.

PINK ZEO RANGER: We better hurry, then.

RED ZEO RANGER: Back to action!!

CUT TO:

EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

Red & Pink Zeo teleport into the scene.

GREEN ZEO RANGER: Tommy! Kat! Are we glad to see you!

RED ZEO RANGER: We’ll catch up later. Right now, we need Zeo Zord Power now!!!

The Zeo Zords come forth and the five Zeo Ranger leap into them.

INT. ZEO ZORDS

RED ZEO RANGER: Let’s bring them together! Zeonizer crystal, power up! Let’s do it!

Red Zeo locks in his crystal.

RED ZEO RANGER: Initiating Zeo Megazord sequence now!!

The Zeo Megazord is formed

ZEO RANGERS: Zeo Megazord ready for action!!

CUT TO:

EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

The Zeo Megazord battles Query and finally destroy him.

RITA REPULSA: Finster!! Your stupid monster got beaten! It was pathetic!!

FINSTER: I tried to warn you.

The Mighty Morphin Rangers gather together and cheer on their friends.

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Yeah!! Way to go, guys!

CUT TO:

INT. ZEO ZORDS

RED ZEO RANGER: That’s that! Looks like everything’s under control again.

LORD ZEDD (OS): Think again, Red Ranger!

A huge explosion rocks the Megazord cockpit, shaking the Rangers.

BLUE ZEO RANGER: What was that??

PINK ZEO RANGER: Look!

RED ZEO RANGER: It can’t be!!

CUT TO:

EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

From the ocean, Serpenterra flies towards the Megazord, firing shots at the Zeo Megazord.

CUT TO:

INT. SERPENTERRA

Goldar mans the controls while Zedd stands behind him, laughing victoriously.

LORD ZEDD: Did you really think a little water and a few cut wires would destroy my greatest creation? Serpenterra is far from finished! Fire again, Goldar!

GOLDAR: Yes, my lord.

CUT TO:

EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

Serpenterra flies closer, blasting the Megazord directly.

CUT TO:

INT. ZEO ZORDS

Explosions rock the cockpit, causing malfunctions throughout the control panels.

YELLOW ZEO RANGER: We’re losing power fast!!

RED ZEO RANGER: Eject!!

CUT TO:

EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

The Zeo Rangers fall out of the Megazord. The Mighty Morphin’ Rangers rush to the fallen Zeo Rangers' sides.

BLACK MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Are you guys all right?

PINK ZEO RANGER: The Zeo Megazord!!

Serpenterra blasts the Zeo Megazord again and it explodes, causing chunks of metal to fly everywhere.

RITA REPULSA: Hahahah! This is the greatest day ever!!

YELLOW ZEO RANGER: What do we do now?

RED ZEO RANGER: Everyone, back to the Power Chamber!

The ten rangers teleport away.

CUT TO:

INT. SERPENTERRA

LORD ZEDD: Yes. Run, Rangers. For the next time we meet, you will all be destroyed!!

DISSOLVE TO:

INT. POWER CHAMBER

The ten rangers teleport into the Chamber and power down.

TOMMY: Zordon, the Zeo Megazord’s been destroyed.

BILLY: Maybe with a few months, we’d be able to rebuild it, but Zedd won’t wait a day, let alone a month.

ALPHA 5: Aiyaiyaiyaiyaiyai! What are we going to do??

ZORDON: Don’t panic, Alpha. There must be a way to stop Serpenterra once and for all.

ZACK: What about the original Megazord?

KIMBERLY: Sorry, Zack. When Rito destroyed the Thunder Megazord, the Dinozords were destroyed in the process.

JASON: What about the Super Zeo Zords and the Red Battlezord.

ZORDON: An excellent suggestion, Jason, but I am cautious about utilizing the remaining Zords until a strategy has been formed. If we lose those Zords, we will have no defense against Serpenterra and Zedd’s invasion.

ALPHA 5: Zordon, what about the new powers we’ve been working on?

ROCKY: New powers?

ZORDON: No, Alpha. That which you speak of is far from ready.

TRINI: Then what are we going to do?

ADAM: Maybe we can contact Trey. With Pyramidus, we may have a chance.

BILLY: Perhaps the Alien Rangers could assist us.

TOMMY: No. Trey and the Alien Rangers would take too long to get here. If we don’t do something now, the world will fall before Zedd.

FADE TO:

INT. ERNIE'S JUICE BAR

Bulk and Skull waltz into the juice bar and take a seat.

ERNIE: Hey, you guys. What’s going on?

BULK: Oh, nothing Ernie. We’re just waiting for what we deserve.

ERNIE: Then I better get away before lightning strikes twice.

SKULL: Hey, Bulk. Why do you think Detective Stone wanted to talk to us?

BULK: Skull, no doubt we wanted to beg us to come back and work for him.

SKULL: Oh, good. International intrigue isn’t quite as exciting as I thought it would be.

BULK: Or as profitable. But when Stone gets here, act cool. Don’t let him know that we want to come back.

SKULL: Right, Bulkie. Cool as ice.

Stone walks in and approaches the boys.

DETECTIVE STONE: Bulkmeyer. Skullivitch.

BULK: Detective Stone.

Quiet pause for a moment. Skull breaks down, grabbing at Stone's pant leg.

SKULL: Please take us back! Please!!

Bulk grabs him off and throws him back onto the stool.

BULK: You idiot! Cool as ice?

DETECTIVE STONE: I’ll make this quick, boys. I spoke to the chief of police today. And after a substantial amount of negotiating, we have agreed to a set of terms that will allow the three of us to return to our duties as police officers.

BULK: Police officers?

SKULL: Really?

DETECTIVE STONE: Really.

Bulk & Skull jump up and down, cheering and hugging in celebration. They stop suddenly and try to casually shake Stone's hands.

BULK: Thank you, sir. I think we’ll take you up on your offer.

SKULL: Hey, what did you mean by “negotiating?”

DETECTIVE STONE: Honestly? I begged until he agreed.

BULK: Works for us.

DETECTIVE STONE: Well, gentlemen, get ready. The law needs us once more.

Bulk and Skull salute Stone when the building is suddenly shaken by an explosion outside.

DETECTIVE STONE: What was that?!

ERNIE: Everyone evacuate! The city’s under attack!

CUT TO:

INT. SERPENTERRA

LORD ZEDD: This is perfect! The city is easy pickings now that the Rangers are out of commission. There is nothing left that can stop me!

DISSOLVE TO:

INT. POWER CHAMBER

The viewing screen shows Serpenterra attacking the city. The ten teenagers angrily watch. Tommy turns to Zordon

TRINI: This is so awful!

ROCKY: I feel so helpless.

Kimberly approaches Tommy and pulls him to the side.

KIMBERLY: Tommy, things keep getting worse and if we don’t make it through this, I just wanted you to know that… I’m sorry.

TOMMY: For what?

KIMBERLY: For… everything. Leaving, the letter, everything. I care so much for you, Tommy, but I had to move on.

TOMMY: … I understood. I won’t lie, Kim. It hurt. It still hurts. I thought you were the only one for me.

KIMBERLY: I’m sorry.

TOMMY: … It’s ok. Like you, I moved on. But you’ll always have a piece of my heart. You were my first love.

KIMBERLY: Are we still friends.

TOMMY: Always.

Tommy and Kimberly embrace in a hug. Kat watches from the other side of the Chamber and hides a look of hurt. She shakes it off and turns to Zordon.

KAT: Zordon, there must be something we can do.

ADAM: The city’s being trashed. If we don’t stop Serpenterra now, Angel Grove is history.

JASON: Even if we can’t win, we’ve got to go back out there and stand up to Zedd and Rita.

ZACK: Agreed. We’ve been in tough situations before, but if we work together, we can beat this thing.

KIMBERLY: Yeah, with the ten of us working together, there’s no evil in the universe that we can’t stop.

TOMMY: Together… hey! That gives me an idea!

KAT: What are you thinking, Tommy?

TOMMY: Zordon, do the power coins have enough energy to sustain another battle?

ZORDON: They do, but once again, I must warn you. Their power is limited and they have already been used up a great deal from the last battle. Using them now will be risky.

JASON: We’ll take that risk, Zordon. What’s your plan, Tommy?

TOMMY: If you, Kim, and the others can keep Rita and her goons off our backs long enough, I think me and the Zeo Rangers can stop Serpenterra once and for all.

JASON: You got it.

ZACK: Definitely.

TOMMY: All right, then. Let’s make this quick.

ZORDON: Be careful, Rangers. And may the power protect you all.

TOMMY: It’s Morphin’ Time!!

ZACK: Mastodon!

KIMBERLY: Pterodactyl!!

BILLY: Triceratops!

TRINI: Saber-Tooth Tiger!

JASON: Tyrannosaurus!

KAT: Zeo Ranger 1: Pink!

TANYA: Zeo Ranger 2: Yellow!

ROCKY: Zeo Ranger 3: Blue!

ADAM: Zeo Ranger 4: Green!

TOMMY: Zeo Ranger 5: Red!

CUT TO:

EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

The ten Rangers flip into the park and we are treated to the standard team-up pose by each Ranger.

BLACK MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Mighty Morphin’ Black Ranger!

PINK MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Mighty Morphin’ Pink Ranger!

BLUE MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Mighty Morphin’ Blue Ranger!

YELLOW MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Mighty Morphin’ Yellow Ranger!

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Mighty Morphin’ Red Ranger!

PINK ZEO RANGER: Pink Zeo Ranger!

YELLOW ZEO RANGER: Yellow Zeo Ranger!

BLUE ZEO RANGER: Blue Zeo Ranger!

GREEN ZEO RANGER: Green Zeo Ranger!

RED ZEO RANGER: Red Zeo Ranger!

RANGERS: Power Rangers!!!

Huge unnecessary, but cool explosion behind the ten rangers as they pose.

RITA REPULSA: You all again?! Putties, get them!!

Red MM ranger looks to Red Zeo

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Good luck, Tommy. We’ll buy you as much time as possible.

RED ZEO RANGER: Thanks, Jas.

The Mighty Morphin Rangers rush into battle with the putties while the Zeo Rangers gather together.

RED ZEO RANGER: All right, guys. We know Serpenterra is too much for any single Megazord. What we need is a great deal of power. And there’s one thing we each have that is filled with power.

PINK ZEO RANGER: What?

Red Zeo holds up a crystal.

RED ZEO RANGER: The Zeo Crystals. With the combined power of the Zeo Crystals, we should be able to destroy Serpenterra once and for all.

YELLOW ZEO RANGER: But, Tommy, the Zeo Crystals are the source of our power! If we lose them, we lose our powers.

RED ZEO RANGER: I know. It’s risky, but it may be our only chance.

GREEN ZEO RANGER: Then what are we waiting for?

BLUE ZEO RANGER: Let’s do it.

PINK ZEO RANGER: For the Earth!

The Zeo Rangers hold out their hands and the crystals materialize. They hold their crystals up at the sky, pointing at Serpenterra's location.

CUT TO:

INT. SERPENTERRA

GOLDAR: Master, the Rangers are up to something.

LORD ZEDD: Foolish brats! They think they can stop me without their precious Zords?! Charge them, Goldar, and leave none alive!

GOLDAR: Yes, my lord!

CUT TO:

EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

The Mighty Morphin Rangers battle around the Zeo Rangers, keeping the putties away.

PINK ZEO RANGER: Pink Zeo Power!!

YELLOW ZEO RANGER: Yellow Zeo Power!!

BLUE ZEO RANGER: Blue Zeo Power!!

GREEN ZEO RANGER: Green Zeo Power!!

RED ZEO RANGER: Red Zeo Power!!

The crystals glow brightly.

CUT TO:

INT. SERPENTERRA

LORD ZEDD: Fire, Goldar! Destroy the Rangers once and for all!!

CUT TO:

EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

ZEO RANGERS: Fire!!!

The crystals fire a blast of immense energy that shoots right through Serpenterra, causing a mass explosion.

CUT TO:

INT. SERPENTERRA

GOLDAR: Lord Zedd, we’ve been hit!!

LORD ZEDD: Evacuate!!

The two teleport out of the zord.

CUT TO:

EXT. ANGEL GROVE

Serpenterra, smoking and damaged flies out of control and heads out into space.

CUT TO:

EXT. SPACE

Serpenterra heads straight for the moon, crashing into a mountain side, which buries the giant zord under rock and dirt.

CUT TO:

EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK

The Zeo Rangers lower their crystals. The Mighty Morphin Rangers finish off the putties and rush to the Zeo Rangers.

BLACK MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: All right!! You guys wasted that thing!

BLUE MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Great job, guys!

BLUE ZEO RANGER: Yeah, but… not without a price.

The Zeo Rangers' costumes flicker in and out briefly, showing their weakening powers.

RED ZEO RANGER: We used almost all the Zeo Power to fire that blast.

GREEN ZEO RANGER: We knew the consequences.

PINK MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: But you did it! You beat Serpenterra and stopped Lord Zedd!

LORD ZEDD (OS): I wouldn’t go that far, Pink Ranger.

The ten Rangers turn around to see Zedd standing before them with Rita, Goldar, Rito, Finster, Squatt, Baboo, and some random putties behind him.

LORD ZEDD: Once again, you Rangers have ruined my chances at domination.

RED ZEO RANGER: Haven’t you figured it out yet, Zedd? Evil never wins.

LORD ZEDD: Not true. Before I came here, I won many battles. I controlled an empire which trembled at the sound of my name. I was feared throughout the universe, but then I met you. And time and time again, you have defeated me. I will have my revenge, Red Ranger. And I will have it now. Face me!

RED ZEO RANGER: You want me, Zedd? You got me.

Zedd poises for battle with his staff ready. Tommy calls upon the Zeo Sword and draws closer.

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Be careful, Tommy!

Zedd & Red Zeo begin battling each other fiercely. The clash their weapons and come face to face.

RED ZEO RANGER: You know this will end like all the other times, Zedd: With you defeated.

LORD ZEDD: There’s just one small difference this time, Tommy.

RED ZEO RANGER: And what would that be?

LORD ZEDD: You dying powers.

With that, the Red Zeo powers flicker out and Zedd uses the moment to beat down Tommy with his staff. Zedd rushes Tommy and attacks him.

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Tommy!!

BLACK MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Hang tight, buddy! We’re coming!

Red & Black MM rush for the battle, but Goldar jumps in the way and slashes Black MM with his sword. Black MM falls to the group and the others rush to him. There
is a huge gash down his chest straight down the center of the power morpher on his belt.

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: You’ll pay for that, Goldar!

GOLDAR: I think not. You and I have an old score to settle ourselves.

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: If you wanted to dance, all you had to do was ask.

Red MM begins battling Goldar. Meanwhile, Tommy tries to dodge Zedd's assault.

LORD ZEDD: What’s the matter, Tommy? Waiting for your Zeo powers to kick in again? You’re wasting your time. You used too much energy in defeated Serpenterra. And without your Ranger powers, you cannot defeat me.

PINK ZEO RANGER (OS): Tommy, get out of there!

Tommy, on the ground, tries to back away from Zedd who places his staff against Tommy's throat.

LORD ZEDD: It’s over at last. The world will be mine. And you will never stand in my way again.

Red MM kicks Goldar away from him for a moment.

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Tommy! Catch!!!

Red MM throws a morpher towards Tommy and it lands close by. Tommy eyes it and rolls out of Zedd's range, towards the morpher. Tommy grabs the morpher and looks
at it. We see that it is the old white ranger morpher.

TOMMY: Ok, Zedd. Time for round two.

TOMMY: Tigerzord!!

The White Ranger is reborn. He pulls out Saba and prepares for battle.

LORD ZEDD: It doesn’t matter what costume you wear. I will win this battle.

White Ranger and Zedd battle each other fiercely, matching each other blow for blow.

Meanwhile, Red MM battles Goldar, gaining an obvious advantage.

White Ranger flips off of the trees in the park, which Zedd smashes into splinters. After awhile, White Ranger leaps behind Zedd and slices him across the back, causing the usual small explosion. Zedd roars in pain and falls to his knees.

The other Rangers rush to White Ranger's side and the White Ranger powers begin to flicker in and out.

WHITE RANGER: It’s over, Zedd. You’ve lost.

Rita and the minions help Zedd to his feet.

RITA REPULSA: I can’t believe you let him beat you! This is giving me such a headache!

LORD ZEDD: Do you ever shut up?

RED MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: Had enough, you two?

LORD ZEDD: You may have won the day, Rangers, but be warned. I will not let this defeat go unpunished. A day will come when I shall return and have my glory restored.

WHITE RANGER: Do your worst, Zedd. Because in one form or another, we’ll always be here to stand against you and any others who would threaten Earth. We won’t ever bow to your force. We’re the defenders of justice, chosen by Zordon to protect the world from scum like you. We’re the Power Rangers.

BLACK MIGHTY MORPHIN RANGER: And don’t you forget it!!

Zedd and his group teleport away. There is a pause and the ten rangers remove their helmets. They cheer and celebrate their victory.

FADE TO:

INT. POWER CHAMBER

The ten teenagers stand in the Power Chamber.

ZORDON: Congratulations, Rangers. You have achieved a great victory here today.

ALPHA 5: Our sensors indicate that Zedd and Rita are not on the moon. They have left the solar system.

JASON: You mean they’re really gone?

ZORDON: It would appear so. For four years, the ten of you have worked to fight back the forces of evil. You have shown great bravery countless times and have proven to be honorable men and women beyond reproach. I thank you for your hard work and dedication in keeping the planet safe from those who would hope to destroy it. Greater Rangers could not have been chosen.

The ten teens look around to each other and smile.

ADAM: What about our powers?

ZORDON: The Zeo Powers are in a fragile state at this point. They, along with the power coins, have a small amount of power left in them. If you find yourself in an emergency that would require them, I caution you all to use them sparsely.

ZACK: Yo, Adam! Catch!

Zack tosses Adam the sliced black dino morpher.

ZACK: Keep it; as a token of the past.

ADAM: Wow! Thanks, Zack.

TOMMY: So, Jas, still bummed about losing the Gold Ranger powers?

JASON: Y’know, after today, I think I’ve found my closure.

TANYA: Zordon, what are we suppose to do now?

ZORDON: Live, Tanya. The world is once again at peace. I know that if trouble strikes again, the Power Rangers will be ready. Until then, enjoy your lives.

ROCKY: I think we can do that.

BILLY: This is truly the end of an era.

TOMMY: All right, guys. One more time.

Tommy sticks out his fist and the other nine teenagers hold out their fists, forming a circle.

TEENS: Power Rangers!!!!!

FADE OUT.

The End.

NARRATOR: Next time on Power Rangers, a alien magician escapes to Earth to avoid the clutches of the evil space pirate, Divatox. The Rangers must protect their alien friend and stop Divatox from unleashing her evil fiancée. But when Rocky is injured, a new problem arises. Can the Power Rangers find a new Blue Ranger and save the Earth from this dangerous new threat? Find out in the theatrical feature “Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie!”


==========================================================

Thus ends my little story. I hope everyone likes it. I tried to set up all the issues that seem to pop up in future seasons. Adam has the dino morpher for "Always a Chance", the explanation for the lack of Zeo Powers in the Turbo movie (minus Kat's small morph), Jason having the morpher in Forever Red where Serpenterra is dug out, and the reason for Tommy having Zeo powers in "Forever Red," but not in Dino Thunder (he used the last of his power).

Critiques are always appreciated. Thanks again for taking the time to read! Tell your friends

...I'm blown away. TreyX, this fanfic is THE BEST I've ever read--if it were posted online, it could easily be mistaken for a real Power Rangers episode. Before I give you all the praise you deserve, however, I have a few questions:

-The Dragonzord. I'm glad you acknowledged that it was still there, but why didn't you just have it destroyed by Serpentera so that it couldn't be used again? Do you want to save it for some future fic?

-You saved the Super Zeo Zords from destruction, but were obviously thinking when you made this choice...may I ask why you made it?

-This isn't a criticism, actually. I was just wondering: do you have any idea who Kim began dating after Tommy? You beought closure to the relationship and explained why they were comfortable together in "Turbo," which is what was relevant, but I'm still curious nonetheless.

Anyways, onto the more important remarks:

Wow, TreyX...I'm EXTREMELY impressed. You managed to tie up all loose ends nicely (even the one about Kat you DIDN'T think you covered makes sense--why she thought she had to morph, and why she de-morphed shortly thereafter) and gave Zeo the great ending it always deserved. This piece of work is excellent, and should be preserved for all future fanfic writers to use as a model. In fact, seeing as how Amit himself considered "Scorpion Rain" to be canon, I myself will now and forever more consider these two episodes to be in continuity, the "lost episodes," if you will, and season finale of "Power Rangers Zeo." You're an excellent writer, and I wish you luck in the future. This fic will be immortalized for some time to come, and you should be very proud of this masterpiece. Well done!

That.....was awsome. I love the "High, unnessasary explosion" part.

GC: a response to your comments.

1. No, Billy was hit by protons or whatever when the command center exploded. Billy cannot be a ranger. But, as many have used him, I'll let it slide, as it's vastly overlooked.

2. Fair point. I missed that part.

3. I said that was more of a personal opinion then a critisizment.

Also, Kat demorphed because she hit the water in mid morph in T:APRM, not because the powers where weak. Just thought I'd point that out.

Also, with the super Zeo zords, according to CommanderCrayfish (I belive), only the Zeo zords where destroyed. Not the Super Zeo.

1. I'm sorry, but I still think you're incorrect. Billy said that his absorption of the molecules made him resist the GOLDEN powers, not ranger powers in general. You can't even generalize and say Zeo Powers, because then how would every other teen have gained the Zeo Powers? They should've been hit with just as many molecules as he! So no, Billy can harness ranger powers (especially the ones he'd previously wielded), just not the Golden Ranger powers. Nothing in the show suggests otherwise. If yoy still don't believe me, visit:

http://www.rovang.org/wg/goldranger.htm

2. OK

3. I know. I was just saying that I felt bad that you didn't enjoy the story as much as I did.

Also, in the original script, Kat de-morphed because the Zeo Crystal was taken by Billy. Clearly, the editors just didn't want to delete the scene. Besides, rangers have been in water before without harm--what's the change?

And I was only saying that it doesn't make sense that the Super Zeo Zords just rotted away in storage like when, oh, say, Metallasaurus or Goldgoyle were attacking. Having them be destroyed would have made more sense, since this was his own fic anyways.

But TreyX, those few criticisms should not outweigh the greatness of your fabulous fic, as I have already said. Be proud.

Hi. Thanks all for the flattering compliments so far.

GS: I didn't destroy the Dragonzord because (a) it has no power without the Green Ranger power and was therefore, no threat and (b) I love the dragonzord too much to destroy it.

And I don't remember who Kim is dating now. She mentions him briefly in her breakup letter to Tommy, but doesn't elaborate.

As for Kat's brief morph in the Turbo movie. Yeah, it's basically because she was in mid-morph (as far as anyone can tell), but I'm going to ignore that and pretend it's because her powers are weak.

Y2Ktm2: On the topic of Billy, he states that he absorbed a high dosage of negative proton molecules which resist the Gold power. You could argue either way about whether it resists all powers or just the Gold power. I think he'd be ok to use his old morpher (plus, it just wouldn't be the same MMPR team without Billy).

Plus, thanks for reading even though it was in script format. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Don't worry Trey, he's incorrect about Billy. And I forgot that the Dragonzord needed the Draggon Dagger to be summoned--so, with the Green Ranger in the past, Dragonzord is pretty useless as you said. Thanks for clearing that confusion up. But I still have one more question: what about the Super Zeo Zords?

Once again, excellent work! Will you be writing any more fics soon? I sure hope so!

1. SCRIPT FORMAT? That is the cardinal sin of all P.R Fanfics, hell, of ANY Fanfic, reserve them only for MISTIES or HUMEROUS fanfics

2. That does NOT read like an episode of Power Rangers, I felt like I was reading "Perry Mason", TWO FLIPPING HOURS OF "PERRY MASON"

3. It is credible you are trying to be as accurate as you can, don't stray too far from the path like you already have

4. FOREVER RED: THE NOVEL Green Senturion, THAT is the "greatest P.R Fanfic" ever written, and if THIS buster wants to emulate Scorpion Rain, he'll read that FIRST

Way to go, TreyX, awesome job. I loved every bit of it and I could even imagine the fight scenes in my head. Again, awesome job.

3. It is credible you are trying to be as accurate as you can, don't stray too far from the path like you already have

4. FOREVER RED: THE NOVEL Green Senturion, THAT is the "greatest P.R Fanfic" ever written, and if THIS buster wants to emulate Scorpion Rain, he'll read that FIRST
1. Have you ever heard of following the SPIRIT of the law and not the LETTER of the law? Script format works in this case, very well in fact, and I'm sorry you don't approve. But it was his choice, so you can't say that script format is almost always wrong, especially when it appealed to a lot of people this way. I don't think the extra detail was needed in this case.

2. Haven't seen Perry Mason, so...care to explain the comparison?

3. I concur.

4. Okay...where the hell do you expect him to be able to find a version of Scorpion Rain? That thing is as elusive as the Phantom Ranger's identity. Just because he didn't follow the hoax script word-for-word doesn't make his version poor--on the contrary, he covered up all Zeo's loose ends, and wrote his OWN interesting version of the story which people other than a select few can enjoy. I thought this fanfic was excellent, but not having read FR: The Novel, I can not compare the two. Is that fic actually posted somewhere, or do I have as much chance of finding it as finding Scorpion Rain?

TreyX, not everyone will like your fic, of course. But so far, the majority does, and you did mainly everything right. Some people (but not Dr. R.K.Z.) are just disapproving of your script format because that's what they've been taught not to use, and can't function while reading it. They're ignorant. They should enjoy it the way it's written instead of going spastic, and be able to enjoy the teamup/finale episode fans have always wanted in Zeo.
