((I'm not getting notified either - I just unsubscribed and resubscribed to the thread. Hopefully that helps!))

Jenkins chuckled quietly to himself, as the comment was made for Lacey to hear back at the base, but was glad Lux was listening in over the comms to him, too.

"Mildly is putting it, well, mildly. Dr. Phil should host an episode for Power Rangers," He replied.

Chambers looked out the window of The Patriot and sighed. She didn't want to disrupt the integrity of this test, but she was also feeling that this situation had passed the scope of being a test a while ago...

***

Derek had not had many interactions with Gabe since the fiasco with JB's twin and Dean kidnapping his family ((I've forgotten - did Mrs. Morales die from her wounds?)). It was good to see him again. Derek had always appreciated Gabe's optimism.

"Well, I'm glad you're still around. Last year's events sure did whittle down your roster," Derek said, placing a hand on Gabe's shoulder.

***

JB nodded to himself, happy that Jezebel was doing as well as he'd hoped as the field leader. This was, after all, a test in a real situation from SPD to gauge how well Cyber Unit would work as an autonomous, yet SPD funded, team.

***

Manx instinctively looked to Cruger, mixed thoughts floating her mind. If whatever that was ended up being useful, she'd kick herself for wasting more of it. If it was a dangerous agent of destruction of Nek's, this would be the perfect opportunity to destroy a portion of it.

Anubis coughed before replying. "Our scans are inconclusive as to the nature of the contents of these boxes. We have them quarantined here at SPD, and some have violently exploded out of some boxes. Red Ranger, as the field leader, what is your recommendation?"

(Gabe's mom did die, yeah)

"I mean, Derek still jumps in with them a lot," Lacey said, shrugging. "We still get some of the crazy. That's just kind of how it works with Power Rangers. I'm surprised we haven't seen any actual monsters yet."

Lux cut in abruptly. "Please don't jinx it."

***

Gabe looked up at Derek and gave a nod. "Couldn't stay away if I wanted to. People still need help and there are way too many bad guys still on the loose. Hospital treating you okay?"

***

Jezebel looked over the convoy. If all of these trucks were full, no matter what they did it would require a significant amount of work, and the more time they spent the greater the chance of Nek sending someone to stop them.

"We're destroying the rest," she said. "I'll send the drivers away."

"Actually, while you were fumbling with your key card there was some sort of monster that A Squad detained. Caused a bad interaction between Charlie and Jenkins," Sampson reported to Lacey. "We still don't know how it is related to this whole mess."

***

Derek smiled behind his visor. Only the life of a ranger could accustom people to be in the midst of world changing events against madmen like Nek, and yet be completely complacent enough to step back and chat about mundane things like work.

Patriot Ranger shrugged. "It's good. What I worked and trained for my whole life. My supervisor is ticked that I'm juggling residency and being a superhero. If I didn't have the clout I had, there's no way I would have been accepted into any residency with my situation. I also don't need to sleep more than three hours a day because of my nanites, so that's a plus I suppose.

"How about you? You ever miss the EMT life?"

***

Cruger smiled.

Good choice, He thought.

Manx was less than happy, the scientist in her hoping her sample in quarantine would be enough to satiate her curiosity.

Curiosity did kill the "Kat", remember? She jokingly reminded herself.

"Okay, the protocol is set," Cruger announced. "JB? You may go and help destroy the containers. I want you to then escort Cyber Unit to my office for a debrief and assessment."

***

JB didn't know to be ecstatic or worried.

"Yes, sir!" He exclaimed.

He then stood up and punched in the coordinates to Cyber Unit, opening up a portal to their location. With great vigor, he rushed into the portal, morphing as he did.

"Zenith: Ascension!"

Landing next to Blake and Jezebel, Zenith Ranger gave them a thumbs up.

"So, fearless leader, how do we eliminate these containers? My scans are Inconclusive about what they are. I don't know if they will cause a nuclear explosion if we attack them or anything." Zenith stated.

Roman was just looking around the building as he was thinking on a few things holding his Orange Lockseed and was holding it tightly as he was thinking about the past that has happened to him, shaking about it as he was looking around to think if he was a ranger or something where they will be?

"Charlie kind of causes bad reactions with everybody, doesn't she?" Lacey said in a low voice to Sampson. "I think she feels left out with all these other Rangers running around."

***

"Three hours of sleep? You're going to outlive every nurse I know," Gabe said, impressed. "Sucks about your boss, though. I can't totally blame guys like him because the time they need doctors the most is usually when we're fighting monsters and knocking down buildings. I do miss it, though."

Gabe had been quietly let go several months before by his own hospital, though he'd taken it willingly. He was more than ready for some downtime, and he still had his family to focus on. Losing his Mom had been rough on everyone. It had taken months before his Dad would even let him suggest training in case he needed to take up his morpher again. It put everyone at risk. Only after a lot of arguing and even more counseling had they settled into acceptance that trouble was coming no matter what they did, so they might as well be ready.

"With all the color changes I'm surprised you didn't show up in, I don't know, yellow?" He asked.

***

Jezebel looked up as the Zenith Ranger joined them. "I doubt even General Nek would use nuclear weapons to protect whatever's here, but we should still be careful. I'd like to get all of the trucks close together, then blast them. Obsidian will use one of his energy constructs to contain the explosion."

Sampson nodded. "I've only met her briefly, but she seems rather unpleasant."

***

"Well, like I said... nanites. I'm not really human anymore!

"Yeah... I guess you could say I'm being selfish, save for the fact I still do my job. It is hard when things like today happens, but there have been so many lulls since Digital that I've only gone on patrol looking or Nek a few times a week compared to what I used to do. And I've had the same suit since this whole thing started, so showing up in yellow would've been weird!" Derek said.

That got him thinking... was it time for a change? The suit he wore was a symbol of his time as Nek's pawn, even if the majority of the time he wore it, it was for fighting for justice. It was an interesting thought he'd never entertained before, but now it was permeating his thoughts. Every time he fought for evil, whether it was under ignorance or mind control, it was as Patriot Ranger.

Maybe a new suit would give me a new start? He thought.

***

"These energy constructs are super helpful! Fantastic!" JB stated in delight, running from there to use his ranger strength to push the trucks together.

Lacey warmed to the topic. "I know, right? I don't know what her problem is. She's the highest-ranking Ranger [i]on Earth[i] basically, but even though she must be super busy she hates anyone else helping! It's like nobody else is allowed to be a hero while she's around."

***

"Eh, what does human even mean anymore?" Gabe asked. "I've heard there are people living on alien planets who can move stuff with their minds and they qualify as humans. If the most selfish thing you're doing is hunting General Nek, I think you're doing pretty well. And hey, some of us know when we've got a good thing. I'm perfectly happy to stay wearing green--though I dunno, Jezebel's well on the way to a full set so maybe I'll have to switch in like 2030 so she can try it."

***

Jezebel focused on the humans around them. Now that she knew what she was doing it was easier to direct her thoughts, notice the red energy hovering around the heads of the truck drivers and security guards. None of them resisted, which meant no fighting, but it still felt...wrong.

"Sometimes when you think the world is out to get you, you lash out first," Sampson reflected out loud. "I know I used to be that way... it's what led me to being on Nek's team to begin with."

***

"Haha, yeah. Maybe Jezebell will be 'green with envy', eh? Hehehe..." Derek stated, fully proud of his statement.

***

"Alright... it looks like everything is in place. So Blake is gonna create a shield around the cargo, right?" Zenith Ranger asked as he made his way back to the Cyber Unit team.

“Look who comes out from behind the computer.” Blake said as he made a giant energy construct around the trucks

"Hardy-har-har," Fake chuckled JB. "You know that wasn't my choice, man. Glad to be here, though. So... how are we gonna blast this?"

"Yeah, but why would she think everyone's out to get her?" Lacey asked.

***

Gabe groaned. "That was painful, dude."

***

"Glad to have you back, JB," Jezebel said. "I'm not entirely clear on our arsenals, but we should have sidearms. Blake, if you'll just leave an opening for us to shoot into."

Sampson thought for a moment before replying. "Well... for me it really boiled down to insecurity. Attack before being attacked. I wouldn't be surprised if it is the same for her."

***

Derek chuckled more. "Well, I suppose that's why I'm the serious one around here. Anyway, looks like they're getting ready to blast some stuff. Shall we?"

***

JB quickly fit his Triassic Shield Disk into his Avatar Morpher, transforming into his Triassic Mode.

"Alright," He stated. "I'll zap the explosion into the Triassic Dimension if it escapes Blake's containment. I'm ready to blast away when you guys are!"

Blake nodded and slung a black ball of morphin energy at the trucks, he left a small opening. He took a step back. "Zenith, FIRE IN THE HOLE!!!!!" he yelled

"Oh. Yeah, I've known some kids like that." Lacey looked down at her coffee, slightly guilty. "Do you think there's anything we can do to try to make her feel better?"

***

"Oh yeah, blowing stuff up is like 80% of what we do," Gabe said, and moved to join Jezebel and JB. The former was nodding.

"Good, a backup is always useful. How do we summon weapons, Blake?"

Blake shrugged his shoulders, " I dunno, I usually call for my weapon out like this, OBSIDIAN SABER!" he yelled, his sword appeared in his hand. "So yea, just call out your weapon."

((Hey, guys. Yeah, I don't know what is happening with my notifications. I followed the steps and I'm still not getting them. If you guys could just let me know on Discord when you post, I'll follow up that way. I'm so brain dead without notifications, LOL))

Sampson paused before answering Lacey, ignoring the happenings on his monitor from the newly minted Cyber Unit team. "Well, what eventually pulled me out of my own web of self-destruction was this team. They've really become my family and, well... they are what drove me backstab Nek. Heh... best decision I ever made. Problem is, I don't know how to replicate what happened to me. At the same time, I highly doubt Charlie is as far gone as I was... I dunno..."

***

JB watched as Blake's blade materialized from his hand. Nodding slowly, JB could feel his cheeks growing red from embarrassment.

"I know we were planning on this being a trial run, but I guess we should have gone over mechanics, like weapons and such, before thrusting you out to the field."

Derek chuckled. "Alright, well I'm just excited to see all of your guys' new firepower. Let's get to seeing some fireworks, huh?"

JB nodded. "Okay. Let's blow stuff up."

"Yeah." Lacey thought about it. "What about Charlie's team? Do you think they could help bring her back down? Or are they a problem too? I don't think I've seen them in action before."

***

"But do you have to already know what your weapon is called or--"

"SCARLET POLEAXE!" Jezebel's shout interrupted Gabe's question as the weapon materialized in her hands, a long pole tipped with a spike and an axe blade. Holding it upright it was taller than she was, though not for long. Working smoothly, as if she'd been doing it for years, she folded the pole in half and twisted the axe handle, transforming the weapon into a double-barreled shotgun.

"Okay then. Uh...Emerald Shield!"

A green shield materialized on his arm, oblong and covered in gleaming circuitry patterns. "Okay, not great for blowing stuff up but still handy."

((I got the notification!!!!))

"To tell you the truth, I know next to nothing about the rest of her team. They always gave off a hive mind kind of following, ya know? Like they just do whatever Charlie tells them to." Sampson replied. "Oh, look! They're gonna blow stuff up!"

***

JB looked at Derek. "I guess the morpher upmorphed the info to their brains?"

Derek laughed. "'Upmorph'? Seriously?"

"What? It's a legit term!" JB protested, half offended, half joking.

Suddenly, Jenkins' voice was heard being broadcast from The Patriot's speaker system. "What are you waiting for!? Blow it up!"

Derek laughed some more. "Jenkins hasn't seen legit action in a while."

(Excellent!)

"Yeah, though, like, I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. It'd be nice if all of these guys were a little quicker to follow orders, you know?" Lacey said.

***

"I checked the manual," Jezebel replied. "Green Ranger, there's a trigger on the inside of your shield that allows it to fire energy rings, if you want something more offensive."

"Oh! Okay, I just took a guess," Gabe said, checking behind the shield. Sure enough he found the trigger, and holding the shield tilted towards the trucks, he fired. Three green rings shot off the side of the shield and slammed into the vehicles with a bang. Jezebel's shot physically jolted her back a step, and one stack of boxes completely exploded in a shower of glass dust and shredded cardboard. Greenish smoke billowed out of the mess.

JB watched as one explosion became many, in a domino-like fashion. It was almost mesmerizing... until one of the explosions erupted within Blake's "bubble" quite... profoundly.

"Whoa!" Derek cried out as a multicolored eruption was seen.

"Woohoo!" Jenkins was heard crying out over The Patriot's loudspeakers.

"Will you stop acting like a child!?" Chambers' voice was heard from the background on the speakers, chastising Jenkins.

Focusing on the site of the explosion, Derek used his bionic senses to look over the wreckage.

"Wait... guys...?" He said, rushing over to the spot as Blake's shield dissipated.

"What is it, Derek?" JB asked, jogging to catch up.

"It looks like... the explosions broke holes through the floor..." Derek said, kneeling down to peer into the new opening in the flooring.

"And?" JB asked, folding his arms across his chest.

"Uh... I think there's something down there... something I wouldn't believe if I didn't see it myself..." Derek said slowly.

JB approached closer and peered over Derek's shoulder. "What in the...?"
