Eastern Rangers Episode 16: Power Theives

Act 1
Scene 1
Setting: Outside the megazords. The now unmorphed Gridster Rangers are standing in front of the Eastern Rangers. There is a long silence before anyone speaks.

Scott: It doesn't matter if you know who we are, you still don't have the power to stop us.

Beth: This is not the end Rangers.

Jeremiah: And don't even bother trying to tell anyone who we are. Unlike when we revieled your identities there are no other witnesses here.

Jeff: See you soon losers.

The Gridster Rangers run away from the battle. There is a flash of light and they vanish.

Victor: We have an advantage now. Let's use it.

Max: First we better get these zords outta here.

Alpha's voice comes in over the communicator.

Alpha's voice: One step ahead of you.

The zords teleport away, and the Rangers power down.

Scene 2
Setting: Gridster's Palace.

Gridster: Hmm. Scott is right, they are more powerful than the Eastern Rangers. I think one more boost of power will give them enough to finally finish this war.

A destroyer behind him speaks up.

Destroyer: But master, you've already given them all the power you have.

Gridster: Maybe, but there is a vast supply I haven't tapped yet.

Destroyer: There is?

Gridster: Of course. The Eastern Rangers themselves! I'll drain their power and give it to my Rangers.

He glances at the Earth.

Girdster: Sleep well tonight Eastern Rangers, for tomarrow you give me what I need to take over the world!

Act 2
Scene 1
Setting: The main lobby of Angel Grove high. The Eastern Rangers are gathered around.

Kara: Anyone notice we don't have the massive heards of fans today?

Joe: I think the reporter thing worked.

Tai: Good thing cause I was gonna start flipping out.

Victor: Guy's, can we focus here. What's important now is to track down the Gridster Rangers and stop them before the can morph.

Karen: Yeah. We can't beat them with their powers. And now that we know what they look like we can avoid any major conflict.

Max: Only one problem. Anyone bother to find out their names?

Tai: Umm...

Victor: It's gonna be like trying to find a needle in a haystack, but it's our only chance.

The bell rings for class.

Victor: Meet back here after school and we'll start.

Joe: Sounds good.

Tai: Got it.

Kara: Later.

They break up and go to class.

Scene 2
Setting: The lobby. Class has ended and the Eastern Rangers are meeting up again.

Joe: Ok everyone, we need to move fast. Everyone will be heading home soon.

Karen: Joe and I will go watch the busses at the north side, Max and Kara go to the south side, Victor and Tai take the middle.

Tai, Victor, Max, Kara: Got it.

They split up and head for the busses. Crowds of people sweep past them.

Tai: This is harder than I thought. Everyone is moving too fast.

Victor: Just keep your eyes open.

Tai: I know.

Scene 3
Setting: The lobby. The Gridster Rangers are standing there.

Jeff: Did you see those dorks out there watching for us?

Scott: Yeah.

Jared: This is the perfect chance to sneak up on them.

Beth: Gridster will be pleased.

They seperate and head for where the Eastern Rangers are. They all sneak up behind them and at the exact same moment grab them and teleport away.

Scene 4
Setting: Gridster's Palace. The Gridster Rangers are standing there.

Gridster: Excelent. We'll leave them down there a little while to suffer, then go drain their power.

Keith: As you wish master.

They exit the main room.

Scene 5
Setting: A holding cell inside the palace. The Eastern Rangers are looking around for a way out.

Max: This sucks! How could we let them do that?

Kara: Simple. We were too busy looking for them to realize they'd be looking for us too.

Victor: The worst part is they knew that.

Joe: They've grown more powerful since they first appeared.

Karen: Hate to think how strong they'll get now that we're out of the way.

Tai: Shut up! We're not beaten yet.

Kara (sarcasticly): Just like the Zeo Rangers aren't.

Victor: Enough! I have an idea.

Tai: Yeah?

Victor: If we all focus our coins we should create enough energy for a teleportation.

Karen: Let's do it then.

Max: One problem. This place has some kind of feild around it or we'd have gotten through to Zordon.

Joe: Still there should be enough power for one of us to go.

Tai: And who's the lucky winner?

Karen: I think you should.

Tai: Why me??

Max: Yeah, I think they'll notice his big mouth is gone.

Joe: Everyone pick a number between 1 and 10.

Victor: 2.

Tai: 7.

Kara: This is stupid.

Joe: Just play along.

Kara: Fine, 5.

Karen: 3.

Max: 10.

Joe: It was 6. Tai and Kara, pick again.

Tai: You can go.

Kara: Forget it. 4.

Tai: Fine! Be that way. 9.

Joe: It was 7. Tai goes.

They gather around and hold out their coins towards Tai's. They all glow. There is a spark and Tai teleports away.

Scene 6
Setting: Angel Grove High. Tai teleports in.

Tai: That was rough. Hope I don't have to do that again. I beter get to the Power Chamber quick.

He teleports away.

Scene 7
Setting: The Power Chamber. Alpha, Billy, and Zordon are talking.

Zordon: Keep trying Alpha. The Rangers couldn't have just vanished.

Alpha: Wait! I'm picking up Tai's signal!

Billy: This can't be right. It says he's right here.

He teleports in.

Alpha: That solves that.

Zordon: Tai, where are the other Rangers?

Tai: The Gridster Rangers kidnaped them.

Billy and Alpha at the same time: What?!

Tai: Look, the others are in Gridsters palace. We have to find a way to get them back.

Zordon: Why did they kidnap them?

Tai: I have no clue. We combine powers and teleported me out before anything happened.

Billy: I'll start trying to reconfigure the teleportation device. Maybe if I can increase the power to it we can get them back.

Tai: I hope so. They seemed a little too happy to have us all there.

Scene 8
Setting: The holding cell inside the palace. The Eastern Rangers are sitting around. No one is talking. The Gridster Rangers walk up to the cell.

Jeff: You guys don't look like you like your new accomodations very much.

Kara: Just wait till I get my hands on you. I'll......

Beth: Shut up. Scott, open the door.

Victor: What?

Scott opens the door. The Gridster Rangers step inside the cell.

Keith: Time to get what we want.

Jeremiah: Hold on! The blue one isn't here!

Joe: We sent him back.

Karen: He's getting help right now.

Jared: Too bad it'll be too late when he gets here.

All the Gridster Rangers place their hands on the Eastern Rangers.

Jeff: Let's do it.

They drain the energy from the Eastern Rangers. The Gridster Rangers walk away laughing as the Eastern Rangers lay helpless on the floor of the cell. They don't even bother to close the door.

Sun Ranger: Should we use their energy now?

Comet Ranger: Just a little bit of it. For a test run.

All Gridster Rangers: Elemental engergy activate.

They begin to glow. The color of the light they give off changes. It is made up of the colors from the Rangers they drained.

Planet Ranger: I can feel it. It's awsome.

Black Hole Ranger: Let's tear this city apart.

They walk down the streets crushing what they can and blasting everything else. People are fired at while they run.

Star Ranger: This is fun.

They all laugh as the surrounding area is starting to burst into flames.

Scene 2
Setting: The Power Chamber. The alarm is going off.

Alpha: Oh no! What's going on.

Billy: I'm bringing up a visual on the viewing globe now.

An image of the destruction the Gridster Rangers are causing appears on the viewing globe.

Zordon: The Gridster Rangers are attacking. We must find the other Rangers fast.

Tai: I'll go hold them off.

Zordon: No Tai. I detect an unnaturally strong energy around them. It is not safe.

Tai: Maybe not, but look.

The image of them attacking innocent people appears on the viewing globe.

Tai: It's not safe for me not to go either.

Zordon: Be careful, and let the power protect you.

Tai: IT'S MORPHIN TIME!

(Lightning Morphing Sequence)

Scene 3
Setting: The city. Tai teleports right in front of a group of people the Gridster Rangers are about to blast.

Sun Ranger: Oh look, he's gonna play hero.

Comet Ranger: With the power we drained from your friends you don't stand a chance.

Tai: What?

Black Hole Ranger: We took their power and added it to our own.

Star Ranger: Time to finish our collection.

They blast him. He flies through the air and hits the side of a building. He falls to the ground, then strugles to get up. They fire at him again. He takes a direct hit, but is still trying to get up. Cosmic Ranger walks up to him and steps on his back, pushing him to the ground again.

Star Ranger: Don't bother getting up. This will only take a second.

They all place their hands on Tai and drain his energy. As they step back he demorphs.

Comet Ranger: Now let's finish him off.

Scene 4
Setting: The Power Chamber. Billy, Alpha, and Zordon are watching the fight.

Zordon: Teleport him back NOW!

Billy presses a button on the console.

Scene 5
Setting: The fight. The Gridster Rangers are about to fire a blast. They fire it. Tai is teleported away just as the blast hits. The Gridster Rangers think they have a direct hit.

Planet Ranger: Only 5 more to go.

The smoke clears and they see that he is gone.

Black Hole Ranger: What! NO!

Comet Ranger: Nevermind. We can get him later. Let's get back to trashing the city.

Scene 6
Setting: The Power Chamber. Tai is laying on a table at the side of the room.

Alpha: Just stay still. Your energy has been badly drained.

Tai(softly): I....didn't even have a chance. They were too strong.

Zordon: I'm affraid that even with all of you together you can't defeat them now.

Tai: There must be a way. Even if we can't defeat them we have to stop them from destroying the city.

Billy: I have a device in my lab that should be able to re-energize you. I'll go get it.

He teleports away.

Alpha: I'll begin scanning the video of the fight to check for weak points.

Alpha is scanning for a while. After 15 minutes Billy arrives. He is holding a device that looks like a bar with lights on it.

Billy: This should do it.

He moves the bar through the air over Tai. The lights flash in different patterns until he stops. Tai stands up quickly.

Billy: How do you feel?

Tai: Better than ever. Wow! That thing works good.

The computer starts to beep.

Zordon: Alpha, stop the scan. The teleportation device has locked onto the Rangers signals. Bring them back immediatley.

Alpha walks over to another console and presses a button. The 5 Rangers teleport in. They are all collapsed on the floor.

Billy: Alpha, Tai. Help me get them spread out.

They arrange the Rangers so they are all laying straight and are 3 feet away from each other. Billy runs the rod along Victor. He then moves on and does the same with all the others. Slowly they start to wake up.

Victor: Where are we.

Zordon: Stay calm Rangers. You are back home now.

They all stand up.

Kara: They drained our energy.

Zordon: We know. The Gridster Rangers are using it to attack the city right now.

Max: We have to stop them. Let's go!

Tai: Wait! I tried to hold them back. They beat me without even trying.

Zordon: Do what you can to hold them off Rangers. But I'm affraid that it's impossible now to defeat them, so be very cautious.

Victor: We will.

All Rangers: IT'S MORPHIN TIME!

Scene 7
Setting: The city. The Gridster Rangers are blasting storefronts. The Eastern Ranges step in.

Max: That's about enough.

Comet Ranger: You! How did you get out?

Victor: Doesn't matter. You stop this now.

Planet Ranger: What are you? My mother?

They charge at the Eastern Rangers.

Victor and Comet Ranger fight. Comet Ranger ducks Victor's punches. He then counters by picking him up and throwing him into a sewer drain. Star Ranger slashes Tai with his weapon. Kara bodyslams Black Hole Ranger. He then grabs her arm and throws her into Tai. Planet Ranger blasts Karen. Joe runs over to help her and get blasted himself. He keeps moving until Cosmic Ranger drop kicks him. Sun Ranger smears mud over Max's helmet making it impossible for him to see. He walks into a street lamp and falls down.

Comet Ranger: See how pathetic they are.

Victor crawls out of the sewer. The others get up and regroup.

Max: Anyone have a plan?

Victor: Just last until they run out to energy and have to power down.

Kara: Not much of a plan.

Tai: That's all we can do. These guys are just too strong.

Max: I miss the days when it was just us verses a monster.

Sun Ranger: Enough talk. Let's just finish them off.

Act 4
Scene 1
Setting: The city. The Gridster Rangers are approaching the Eastern Rangers.

Kara: Give us your best shot.

Tai: I REALLY don't think you want them to do that.

Black Hole Ranger: I agree with him. We can finish you off anytime we please.

Victor: Stand your ground guys.

Comet Ranger: Heroic words for someone who's about to be destroyed.

All Gridster Rangers: Elemental energy activate!

They begin to glow with all the colors of the Eastern Rangers.

Joe: Incredible. Our power allowed them to do that?

Tai: Affraid so.

They prepair to fire an energy beam at the Eastern Rangers.

Tai: This is gonna hurt!

They fire. There is a huge blast. The Eastern Rangers are sent flying in all directions. The spot where the beam hit is now a 4 foot deep crater, and it's 2 feet wide. The Eastern Rangers land hard.

Karen: Tai was right. That did hurt.

Kara: There's a first time for everything I guess.

Tai: Oh man.....

Victor: Enough jokes you guys. They're gonna blast again. LOOK!

They are each about to fire beams.

Max: Move it!

The Gridster Rangers fire, but the Eastern Rangers get out of the way just in time. The individual beams don't leave near the craters that the large one did but they still cause signifigant damage to the area. The Eastern Rangers gather.

Victor: Get your weapons. Fire Staff, power up!

Tai: Lightning Strikers, power up!

Kara: Diamond Cutter, power up!

Karen: Amethyst Blaster, power up!

Joe: Onyx Chargers, power up!

Max: Thunder Sabre, power up!

Victor, Tai, Kara, Karen, Joe: Eastern Blaster, power up!

Victor throws the Fire Staff into the air. It stays suspened horizontaly. Tai throws up the Lightning Strikers. They land sideways on top of the Fire Staff. Kara tosses the Diamond Cutter. It sets on top of the Strikers. Karen throws the Amethyst Blaster. It lands on top of the Cutter with it's handle forming the handle of the Eastern Blaster. Finaly Joe tosses the Onyx Chargers and they hook onto the bottom of the Strikers. The Eastern Blaster falls into Victors hands. The other Rangers stand to his sides.

Victor: Fire!

The blaster fires a beam made up of the Ranger's colors. It hits right in the middle of the Gridster Rangers. There is a loud noise but no explosion.

Comet Ranger: Watch this.

The Gridster Rangers place there hands in the beam, which is now just hovering in the middle of them. It reacts to the power they have stolen from the Eastern Rangers and gets bigger. The Gridster Rangers push the beam back at the Eastern Rangers. It goes back into the blaster making it explode. The Rangers are knocked back.

Karen: I don't believe it!

Joe: We're toast.

Max fires a beam from the Thunder Sabre. Sun Ranger reflects it into a nearby builing. Glass falls all around the area.

Sun Ranger: You didn't really think that was gonna work did you?

Max: Well I was kinda hoping.

Comet Ranger: Enough. GRIDSTER ZORDS, POWER UP!

A portal opens in the sky and 6 meteors fall down. They strike the ground and the Gridster Zords appear. The Rangers teleport to their cockpits.

All Gridster Rangers: GRIDSTER MEGAZORD POWER NOW!

The Zords jump up into the air. Comet zord retracts it arms, legs, and head. Star zord transforms into and arm and attaches to the left side of Comet zord. Black Hole zord also forms into an arm and connects to the right side. Planet zord becomes the left leg and Cosmic zord becomes the right leg. The Comet zord head re-emerges with a helmet on. The Sun zord spilts apart and attaches to the rest of the Gridster Megazord as armor.

Victor: Let's do it!

Victor, Tai, Kara, Karen, Joe: ELEMENTAL ZORD POWER, NOW!

Max: Thunder Battlezord power, now!

Scene 2
Setting: The zord holding bay. The main door opens. An orange, blue, white, purple, and black streak of light leave. When they arrive at the scene the orange one touches down and in a ball of flame the Firezord appears. The blue one lands. Lightning surrounds the Lightning Ninja and then dissapears. A bright flash of light shines as the Diamond Slasher appears. Crystals grow from the ground and the Amethyst Ninja emerges from them. The black light touches down and the light forms the shape of the Onyx Deputy. The Rangers teleport to the cockpits.

The zord holding bay opens. A gold streak of light leaves. As it strikes the ground there is a loud blast. The zord appears.

Victor: ELEMENTAL MEGAZORD POWER!

The Zords jump up into the air. Firezord retracts it arms, legs, and head. Lightning Ninja transforms into and arm and attaches to the left side of Firezord. Diamond Slasher also forms into an arm and connects to the right side. Amethyst Ninja becomes the left leg and Onyx Deputy becomes the right leg. The Firezord head re-emerges with a helmet on.

Joe: I hope that power they took from us didn't transfer into the megazord too.

Victor: If it did, we're finished.

Max: I'll distract them, you get ready to attack.

Victor: Sounds like a good plan.

Thunder Battlezord circles around behind the Gridster Megarzord. He fires at it to get it's attention. It turns around to fight back. The Elemental Megazord Charges towards it to tackle it.

Star Ranger: Transfer the power to the zord and we'll show them what true power is.

Comet Ranger focuses his energy into the megazord. It blasts Thunder Battlezord then quickly turns and blasts the Elemental Megazord.

Karen: It's too fast.

Kara: It was never that fast before.

Tai: I bet they put more power into it.

Thunder Battlezord attempts to fire again. Before it can the Gridster Megazord turns around and slams it's fist right through the zord. Sparks fly and the zord starts shaking.

Max: It's gonna blow!

He bails out.

Victor: Oh man. Not the Thunder Battlezord!

Tai: Look out!

As everyone looks ahead the Gridster Megazord's other fist smashes into the Elemental Megazord. The controll pannel starts going crazy.

Joe: We can't hold it!

Karen: We have to bail out.

Victor: NO! We stay with it. If they take down the zords nothing will stop them.

Tai looks down at the pressure gauge.

Tai: No choice. This things history.

Victor: If our megazord is going down so is theirs.

He activates the self destruct sequcence.

Joe: Whatever you say. But let's go!

They jump out of the Megazord and land on the ground. Max runs over to join them.

Victor: Everyone get down. It's gonna blow!

They all duck. The Elemental Megazord explodes. Pieces of it land all over the city. The force of the blast doesn't even scratch the Gridster Megazord.

Victor: That's impossible!

Joe: No way!

Karen passes out.

Kara: If I didn't see it I wouldn't beleive it.
