Questions about SPD and Dino Thunder

Hello all. I'm a Wikipedia editor and I've been involved in a few minor conflicts about these two series.

First, was Sky's father ever given a name? Currently, the issue at hand is whether or not he should be called "Sky's father" or "Officer Tate" (and there was an idiot who was trying to push that he was Wesley Collins/Red Time Force Ranger).

Second, what are the Dino Thunder Power Rangers' titles? Would Kira (for example) be the Yellow Dino Ranger or the Yellow Ptera Ranger?

Sky's father was simply called "Sky's father"

I always thought they were like Dino Thunder <color> Ranger or such for their names.

It would take me sometime to confirm, but I'm pretty sure they were referred to as <color> Dino Rangers.

As for Sky's Dad, The 2nd Evil is correct. They never even said Officer Tate, so he wasn't named at all.

i think maybe ptera sounds better , since whenever they did role calls in the show they would say dinosaur names.

Oh for f's sake, you guys are right. How could I forget Thunder Storm? They blatantly obviously said "[dinosaur prefix] Ranger" there. =/

Maybe once I get some sleep, my mind won't be so much like swiss cheese.

For Ryulong, a correction needed for Dino Thunder Episode 5. The link goes to a band, not to the episode summary itself.

Yellow Dino Ranger, Red Dino Ranger ect. They never referred to themselves ar Yellow Ptera Ranger or Red Tyranno Ranger for example. Sometimes they would yell out their dinosaur power but they were called Dino Rangers usually

The thing about Wiki's is, if you don't know what you're talking about, don't talk about it.

The Dino Thunder Ranger term was never used. They were called Dino Rangers.

I'm just trying to clarify, as there has been problems trying to figure out what was used. I can't remember either, even though I have seen the series (not recently, though). From what I can tell, they called out "<dino> Power" and they are usually called the <color> Dino (Thunder Power) Rangers.

And specifically, in the "Thunder Storm" morphing sequence, they just call out their Dinosaur, just like the Ninja Rangers do their "Power of <element>" thing (People love putting the morphing sequences up at youtube).

the only refrence they really ever made to their dino names was when they were talking about the zords and called them by name or when they did a roll call and yelled out their individual powers: "Tyranno, Tricera, Ptera, Brachio and Drago"

I understand that, and I'd like to help you

The Dino Thunder Ranger term was never used onscreen, nor did the team ever refer to themselves as (Dinosaur) Ranger (not on a regular basis). Also, not only did other characters in the series adress them as the Dino Rangers (such as Mesogog in Back In Black and Dustin in Thunder Storm Part 1) but the theme song also features the Dino Rangers term.

So, the correct terminology would be "[Color] Dino Ranger" and they are collectively called the Dino Rangers (Dino Thunder Power Rangers is used for the group page, though, because it utilizes the series title)?

There's a few people it could be. If you sent the IP to the Mods (and if they had the time) I'm sure they could tell you who it was.
