Hey guys! Guys! We're on Power Rangers In Space!!! This is going to be awesome. Expect our recaps to be polarized. We both love this season, but we have different FEELINGS about it. :D
There is a huge Evil Party! Zedd makes jokes about Rita! And Divatox is totally bragging about blowing up the rangers. THERE ARE PUTTIES! AND COGS! AND OMG THIS IS THE BEST PARTY EVER!!!!!!! Oh but there is a masked figure wandering the crowd. And then Divatox gets blasted by some purple electricity. Because Astronema is there!!! I love her.
AND WE GET NEW AWESOME THEME SONG!
I'm just so happy we get to see Rita and Zedd again. :D I LOVE THEM SO.
Dark Spectre shows up and makes a toast. Weird hooded guy keeps staring at Astronema. She totally knows he's a spy. Because he didn't drink during the toast. Because... I don't know why. But Robed Hooded Figure
kicks some major bad guy butt all on his own! And his cloak comes off and he's TOTALLY THE RED RANGER. Like we didn't all see THAT coming. He escapes on his galaxy glider and then Divatox and Rita argue over who is going to go get him. Astronema wins and she wasn't even in on the fight.
Meanwhile, Cassie, Ashley, TJ, Carlos, and Alpha are still in the shuttle. Alpha is malfunctioning. His speech chip was damaged and YAY NO MORE ANNOYING VOICE! A spaceship comes up and pulls them in. They are, understandably, a little hesitant to go wandering, but TJ is brave and awesome and leads them all out of the shuttle anyway. IT IS THE ASTRO MEGASHIP AND I LOVE IT SO. They are being watched by it, but they don't know that yet. They are REALLY BAD at sneaking.
They find the engine room and Carlos sort of figures out there are cameras on the wall, but he totally doesn't get that it's Deca and she's sentient. ANYWAY! They keep exploring, more boldly this time, wondering if there is anybody else on the ship. Ashley finds the replicator
and makes herself something to drink which leads Carlos to find still hot food and assuring them somebody was there at some point.
They find the bridge and are totally awed by it. Alpha starts pushing buttons and reveals that they're near a planet. TJ wonders what planet it is and it's totally Jupiter, but probably supposed to be something else.
But then Mysterious Red Ranger has an Epic Space Battle and I ADORE ANDROS, OKAY? He catches strange people on his bridge, OH NOES! Because Andros is delightfully anti-social. And runs away, literally. They use a Jefferies tube
to get to a lower level of the ship and find him, but then he totally tries to beat them up in the hallway. We like this because it means lots of super hot ass shots of the cast. This is one damn fine looking group of people.
Astronema attacks the ship and manages to disable it within a few shots! She's so awesome. The ship is losing power, so the rangers all head to Engineering
, y'know, where they were before and saw the warp core
. TJ notices a cable unplugged and reattaches it, just in time to keep the ship from destroying itself by crashing into
Mysterious Non-Gas Planet That Looks Like a Gas Giant From Space. Instead they have a controlled crash
on a rocky surface. THERE IS EPIC MUSIC! While Andros looks for "the intruders". There is no time for questions, though, because Astronema is right behind them.
We learn that Astronema's little mooks with bat'leths
are called Quantrons. I prefer to call them Klingon Mook. So I just might. Andros runs out of the ship to go fight. The others follow because they are such Big Damn Heroes.
TO BE CONTINUED!
OMG THIS IS SO AWESOME.
(side note: I really need a team in space icon, if anybody can point me to one...)
