Eastern Rangers Episode 7: Timeline

Act 1
Scene 1
Setting: A gym. Tai and Victor are working out. Tai is lifting weights while Victor spots him.

Victor: Come on. One more. You can do it.

Tai is struggling to lift the barbell. He finaly manages to get it up and places it back in it's notch.

Victor: Great job man. I've never seen you lift that much.

Tai: That was definitly the most I've ever done.

Victor: Now if we could just talk Joe into building up some muscles.

They both laugh a little.

Tai: Now that would be amazing.

They walk over to a bench and sit down.

Scene 2
Setting: The Moon Palace. Gridster and Liquidor are talking.

Gridster: Liquidor, have you ever heard of the creature they call Timeline?

Liquidor: Hum, I don't think so. Why?

Gridster: He has the power to controll all of time. If we could get him to work for us then we could simply erase those Power Punks.

Liquidor: Want me to make a few calls?

Girdster: It would do no good. He only fights for good. We must take controll over him.

Gridster looks directly at Liquidor.

Gridster: And I beleive you could be the one to do just that.

Liquidor: Really? How?

Gridster: Easy, you just pose as a glass of water. When he drinks you take controll of him.

Liquidor: I love it.

Gridster laughs as Liquidor teleports away.

Act 2
Scene 1
Setting: The gym. Tai and Victor are on the bench. Some punks walk over to them.

Head punk: So, you the one who just lifted that set over there?

Tai: Yeah.

Punk: That was my bench. Everyone knows that.

Victor: Look, we've never been here before. It won't happen again.

Punk: It better not, or I'll break your heads.

Tai (to Victor): Don't take that from him. You could take him.

The punk was walking away and turns back as he hears Tai.

Punk: You think you could take me little whimp?

Tai: I know I could. You're all talk.

Punk: Is that so? I'll see you boys outside in an hour. We'll see who's the strongest.

The punk walks away.

Victor: Good job Tai. I thought you were gonna try not to be so impulsive.

Tai: It just sliped out. Besides, we can take him.

Scene 2
Setting: Somewhere in space. Timeline is monitoring the void of time. Liquidor arrives and hides behind a rock.

Liquidor: This is going to be too easy.

Timeline begins to walk over to a pool of water. As he cups his hands for a drink Liquidor transforms into liquid and enters the water. Timeline scoops him up and drinks him. He only takes a few steps then screams in pain.

Timeline: Aaaahhhhh! What's happening?

He shakes a few times then his voice changes to Liquidor's.

Timeline: Now that's more like it. Gridster will be pleased with me. Now to destroy those Rangers.

He teleports away.

Scene 3
Setting: The gym.

Victor: Look, I realy don't think this is a good idea.

Tai: What are you affraid of? We've taken out a bunch of monsters. How can one bully be stronger than a monster?

Victor: This is completly different. Those monsters are trying to destroy Earth, this guy is just looking for some attention.

Tai: So let's make him think twice.

Victor: You're the one who needs to think twice. This is a bad idea.

Tai: There's no way I'm backing down from him.

Victor: If your fighting I'm leaving.

Tai: Then leave.

Victor gets up and starts walking away. As soon as he gets out the door his communicator goes off. He goes back inside.

Tai: I knew you wouldn't leave me to fight alone.

Victor: Don't think I wouldn't. The only reason I'm here is because the communicator went off.

Tai: Oh man. I realy wanted to fight this guy.

Victor: Let's go.

They both get up and go to a corner of the gym. Victor activates his communicator.

Victor: I read you.

Zordon's voice: I need all of you at the Power Chamber now.

Victor: We're on our way.

They teleport out.

Scene 4
Setting: The Power Chamber. Victor and Tai teleport in. They walk up to Alpha.

Tai: What's happening?

Alpha: Wait until the others get here.

A few minutes later the other Ranger's arrive.

Zordon: Rangers, we have a very bad situation developing.

The Rangers look puzzled.

Zordon: There is a creature in a distant universe that can controll the powers of time. He is known as Timeline.

Kara: What does he have to do with this "crisis"?

Zordon: Gridster has found some way to controll Timeline. He is attacking Angel Grove as we speak.

Tai: If he's working for Gridster then we have to stop him.

Karen: Wait, Gridster is controlling him. He isn't doing this on purpose.

Zordon: You're both right. We can't let him terrorize the city, but we must not hurt him if it can be avoided.

Victor: We'll be carefull. Ready guys.

Tai: Let's do it.

Joe: I hope no one gets hurt.

All Rangers: IT'S MORPHIN TIME!

Scene 5
Setting: Downtown Angel Grove. Timeline is chasing someone down the street.

Victor: That's far enough!

Timeline turns around.

Timeline: You think you can stop me?

Kara: We don't want to hurt you, but don't think we won't.

Timeline: Tough words coming from someone in white spandex.

Kara: I'll show you tough!

She begins to move towards Timeline. Joe reaches out to stop her.

Kara: What gives? Let me at him!

Joe: Calm down. We can't beat him and you know it.

Karen: We have to reason with him.

Timeline: Try all you want to convince me otherwise, but I'm destroying this city.

He reaches out. Two blasts leave his hand and strike a nearby building. It is completely destroyed.

Victor: Don't make us do this.

Timeline: What, this?

He fires at the Rangers. They fly out and land hard. When they get back up Victor speaks.

Victor: We have no choice. Let's get him.

Timeline: Yes, do try Rangers.

Scene 6
Setting: The Moon Palace. Gridster is watching happily.

Gridster: I think I'll send down some help so he can prepair his time portal.

A group of destroyers teleport toward Earth.

Scene 7
Setting: The battle. Timeline is trying to avoid the Ranger's attacks with some success.

Timeline: You'll have to try harder than that.

Tai: Fine by me.

He throws a punch. Timeline ducks but Tai kicks him in the gut.

Timeline: Aaaahhhh. That hurt.

Tai: There's a lot more where that came from.

Timeline backs off. He gets a few yards away from the Rangers when the destroyers arrive.

Destroyer: Prepair your time portal, we'll get the humans.

Timeline: Ok.

The destroyers charge at the Rangers.

The destroyers completely surround the Rangers. They all reach for their blasters and aim towards the Rangers.

Joe: This looks bad.

Kara: We're gonna get toasted.

Victor: Everyone, on the count of three jump in the air.

Tai: What good will that do?

Victor: You'll see. One, two, THREE!

They all jump. As they do the destroyers fire and hit each other. They all fall to the ground and explode. The Rangers land unharmed.

Karen: Good idea Victor.

Victor: It doesn't take a genius to know you don't fire towards your own men.

Timeline steps in front of the Rangers.

Timeline: I hate to break up the little victory party but you haven't won yet.

Tai: We'll get you.

Timeline: I don't think so.

He waves his arms out in front of him. He then swings his left arm in a circle.

Timeline: Time portal, open.

A portal opens in front of him. It begins sucking things into it. The Rangers are getting pulled into it.

Kara: This is just great. I don't think jumping is going to solve this one.

Victor: It's too strong. Maybe if we blast it.

He pulls out his laser pistol. He fires but the beam is sucked into the portal.

Victor: So much for that.

Joe: This is really gonna hurt.

The Rangers are about to be pulled into the portal when a green beam comes out of it and surrounds them. It ties them together and pulls them thourgh. As soon as they are gone the portal closes.

Timeline: Let's see you stop Gridster now.

Act 3
Scene 1
Setting: The Power Chamber. Billy, Alpha, and Zordon are watching the viewing globe. An image of the Rangers dissapearing into the portal is on it.

Billy: I can't stop the portal Zordon.

Zordon: My sensors indicate that it is an entry way into the time vortex.

Billy: Can we stop it?

Zordon: Unfortunatly no. I fear we may have lost them forever.

Scene 2
Setting: Inside the time vortex. The Rangers are unmorphed. The entire area is open. It is just a bunch of swirling colors with no ground, sky, or any other features.

Karen: What is this place?

Joe: I have no idea but I don't see an exit sign anywhere.

Victor: I think we should try to find a way out.

Tai: And where would we start? We have empty space, some more empty space, and then even some empty space.

Kara: Yeah, really. We might as well stay here since there is nowhere to go.

Victor: We'll never know if we don't try. Come on.

Joe: Maybe Kara is right. This may be the only area where the portal opens. If we leave we could be stuck here forever.

Victor: Then we'll mark this spot. If we don't find anything we'll just come back here. Does that please everyone?

Karen: That should work. There's no harm in looking around.

Kara: I just don't think we should.

Tai: How about Kara and I stay here while you, Joe, and Karen look around. If you find anything just come and get us.

Victor: I don't like it, but it's at least a plan. We'll be back in two hours.

Tai: Ok, see you then.

Victor, Joe, and Karen start walking away.

Scene 3
Setting: The Moon Palace. Gridster is standing in front of Shadower, Terrabot, and Cybertron.

Gridster: This is our moment of triumph. Those pathetic Rangers are finaly beaten.

All the monsters cheer.

Gridster: Now is the time to crush the city.

He waves his arms around.

Gridster: My dark army, arise!

Clones of Terrabot, Cybertron, Shadower, and Liquidor appear.

Gridster: Take your clones and destroy Angel Grove.

They all yell and teleport to the city.

Scene 4
Setting: Power Chamber. Billy and Alpha are working on the console.

Billy: We have to find a way to get them out of there.

Alpha: I'm trying. I can only work so fast.

Zordon: They are lost in the time vortex. It is impossible to locate them.

The alarms go off.

Alpha: Aye ay ay ay ay. What's going on?

Zordon: Gridster has sent an army of monsters to destroy the city.

Billy: This is awfull. We have to find the Rangers.

Scene 5
Setting: The time vortex. Victor, Joe, and Karen are searching for a way out.

Victor: See anything?

Joe: Just the same stuff we've been walking through for the last 4 hours.

Karen: There has to be a way out of here.

Joe: Face it, we're hopelessly lost in another universe.

Victor: We should've found the others 2 hours ago. Where did they go?

Karen: I think it's more like where did we go.

Joe: Everything looks the same. We probably made a wrong turn.

Victor: We'll just have to keep looking.

They continue walking.

Scene 5
Setting: The Power Chamber. Billy and Zordon are trying to find the Rangers. Alpha is watching Gridster's monsters trash the city.

Alpha: This is terrible.

Billy: At least when he got the Zeo Rangers we had the Fire Staff. Now we have nothing.

There is a loud crash and the power goes out. Zordon fades away.

Alpha: Uh oh.

Billy: This doesn't look good.

There is a flash of light. Blue and white beams fill the room.

Billy: Hold on Alpha. It's probably Gridster.

The beams begin to take shape. Tai and Kara appear. Billy and Alpha look on in amazement.

Tai: Wow, it worked.

Kara: I can't beleive it.

Tai: I just hope the others find him too.

Billy walks up to them.

Billy: Find who?

Scene 6
Setting: Inside the time vortex. Victor, Karen, and Joe are still lost.

Joe: I'm too tired to go on.

Victor: We'll take a break, then we have to keep looking. Tai and Kara probably think we left without them.

Karen: I hope we find them soon.

A red light begins walking towards them.

Joe: Oh great. What is that?

Victor: I'm not sure. It looks like, but it can't be.

Karen: It's the Red Zeo Ranger!

Act 4
Scene 1
Setting: The time vortex. Karen, Joe, and Victor stare at Zeo Ranger 5.

Karen: Do you think it's really him?

Joe: It's probably one of Gridsters traps.

Victor: Maybe, but if he knows what happened to the others we have to take a chance.

Karen: After you Vic.

Joe: Yeah, go ahead.

Victor: Way to show some bravery guys.

They all walk towards Zeo Ranger 5. He also approaches them.

Red Zeo Ranger: I see your in a bit of a bind.

Joe: Really? I just thought it was a nice place to visit.

Karen nudges him in the side.

Karen: This isn't the time Joe.

Joe grabs his side.

Joe: Sorry.

Victor: Can you help us?

Zeo Ranger 5: I see we've left the earth in good hands. I met up with some friends of yours earlier.

Karen: Where are they?

Zeo Ranger 5: They went home. You need to hurry. Gridster has cloned his monsters and they are pulverising Angel Grove.

Victor: How do we do that?

Zeo Ranger 5: Focus on your thoughts and eliminate any bad feelings or thoughts.

Joe: Are you comming with us?

Zeo Ranger 5: I can't. The other Zeo Rangers and I are traped in another vortex and cannot leave it.

Victor: We will save you.

Zeo Ranger 5: I know you will. Hurry, Angel Grove needs you.

He vanishes into thin air. The Rangers just look at each other puzzled.

Joe: Think it'll work?

Karen: I don't see Tai or Kara anywhere so it must.

Victor: Let's do it.

They all close their eyes, then vanish.

Scene 2
Setting: The Power Chamber. The power shuts off again and Victor, Joe, and Karen appear in the middle of the room. Tai and Kara rush over to them.

Tai: I thought we'd never see you guys again.

Victor: That was definitly weird.

Karen: At least we're back.

The power comes back on. Zordon re-appears.

Zordon: I'm glad to see you all made it back but there is business to attend to. Behold the viewing globe.

The Rangers turn to look. Images of Gridster's army are shown.

Tai: Now's the time for action.

Billy: I've created a device that can block Timeline's portal, but it won't run for long.

Victor: Got it.

All Rangers: IT'S MOPHIN TIME!

(Onyx Morphing Sequence)

Scene 3
Setting: Angel Grove. The monsters are attacking the city. The Rangers teleport in.

Tai: Oh man, how are we ever gonna stop them all.

Victor: Consentrate on the clones, I'm sure we can take them out.

Cybertron spots the Rangers.

Cybertron: Look, Power Rangers!

Terrabot: Impossible! Timeline banished them.

Kara: Well we got out.

Shadower: Get them!

The 4 clones charge at the Rangers. The Rangers dodge blows from each. Victor tries to kick one and it blocks him. Another one comes from behind and is about to grab him when Karen puts it in a headlock and flings it through the air.

Victor: I owe you one.

Karen: Don't mention it.

They continue fighting with little success. Shadower's clone slams Joe and Tai. Kara is also knocked down. Victor and Karen rush to help them.

Kara: They're too strong. We need some fire power.

Victor: Right. Weapons online!

Victor: Fire Staff, power up!

Tai: Lightning Strikers, power up!

Kara: Diamond Cutter, power up!

Karen: Amethyst Blaster, power up!

Joe: Onyx Charger, power up!

The Ragners go after the clones. Tai holds out his Lightning Strikers and zaps Cybertron's clone. The clone is hit hard. As it is hit Victor sees the real Cybertron fall to the ground.

Victor: That's it. Everyone, if you get the clones you get the monster!

Kara: Time for some clone bashing.

She throws her Diamond Cutter. It goes right through Terrabot's clone. They both go down. Karen walks up beside her.

Karen: Not bad. Watch this.

She blasts Shadower's clone.

The defeated clones vanish and Cybertron, Terrabot, and Shadower vanish. The Rangers regroup.

Tai: Allright, we kicked monster butt.

Victor: Good job guys.

Liquidor's clone and Timeline step out in front of them.

Timeline: Forget me already? I'm hurt. I'll just have to send you back to my time vortex.

He waves his arms out in front of him. He then swings his left arm in a circle.

Timeline: Time portal, open.

Nothing happens.

Timeline: What?!

Victor: We were ready for you this time. Let's finish this. Eastern Blaster power now!

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.

Karen: Remember, aim for the clone.

Victor: Got it.

All Rangers: EASTERN BLASTER, FIRE!

The beam hits the clone but it is not defeated.

Timeline: Hahaha. Did you think you'd beat us so easy?

Joe: Well we were kinda hoping.

Victor: Let's do it again, back into position.

Scene 4
Setting: The Moon Palace. Gridster is yelling at the defeated monsters.

Gridster: YOU'RE ALL WORTHLESS! THE RANGERS WERE TRAPED. HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN!

Terrabot: We're sorry master, but the clones had a side effect.

Grister calms down some.

Gridster: At any rate I still have Timeline. I think I'll just give him a little boost. Grid powers, strengthen him!

Scene 5
Setting: Angel Grove. A portal opens in the sky. Timeline and Liquidor's clone are taken into it. There is a flash of light as the portal closes and they reappear as giants.

Timeline: Try to stop us now.

Tai: They just gained a major height advantage.

Kara: Then maybe we should even up the score.

All Rangers: WE NEED ELEMENTAL ZORD POWER, NOW!

Scene 6
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.

Victor: Let's get them guys.

Joe: Anyone notice that the clone isn't timeline?

Karen: Yeah, so?

Joe: Nothing, just wondering.

Tai: Enough talk, we have a score to settle.

Lightning Ninja moves up and advances towards the clone. The clone tries to punch it but Tai avoids it.

Tai: So you wanna play rough? Take this.

Lightning Ninja lifts its sword in the air. A bolt of lightning leaves it and strikes the clone. It is unharmed.

Tai: What?! I could use some help here.

Firezord, Diamond Slasher, and Amethyst Ninja are all fighting Timeline.

Kara: We're a bit busy right now.

Timeline blasts Firezord and Amethyst Ninja. They fall back.

Victor: Get him Kara!

Kara: I'm on it. Blade Cut.

Diamond Slasher deployes it's blades and swings at Timeline. He is hit in the arm. He laughs as he reaches out and grabs Diamond Slasher and throws it to the ground.

Karen: You were saying.

Kara: Shut up.

Meanwhile Joe goes to help Tai.

Joe: Maybe if we attack together we can stop him.

Tai: Good idea. Lightning Sword.

Joe: Twin Blasters.

Their attacks hit him at the same time. He is still not hurt. He blasts the zords and they fall to the ground.

Joe: We can't stop him.

Tai: We need more power.

Victor: We'll have to switch to Megazord mode.

Kara: Then let's do it.

All Rangers: Elemental Zords, Megazord mode!

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.

All Rangers: Elemental Megazord, power up!

Victor: Aim for the clone first, then we'll get Timeline.

Tai, Joe, Kara, and Karen: Right.

All Rangers: Elemental Megazord blast.

A blast of energy is expelled from the Megazords chest. It hits the clone and it falls to it's knees.

Joe: A little more should do it.

Victor: Elemental Megazord Sabre!

The sabre drops from the sky and the Megazord catches it. The symbols light up as the blade hits the clone. A white light shines inside it and it desintegrates. As soon as it does Timeline goes into convulsions.

Timeline: Wh..at is hap.....en...ing!

Liquidor is tossed out of Timelines body. He is beining to desintegrate.

Liquidor: Nooooo. My plan was perfect. P....E....R...F...E....C....T!

He falls to the ground and explodes.

Joe: You don't see that everyday.

Kara: Yes! Another one bites the dust.

Karen: I think we should go help Timeline.

The Elemental Megazord walks over and helps Timeline up.

Timeline: Thank you Rangers.

Tai: No problem.

Act 5
Scene 1
Setting: The Power Chamber. Timline is talking to the Rangers.

Timeline: I'm sorry for all the trouble I've caused you.

Karen: Don't worry about it. Liquidor was controlling your body.

Tai: Besides, if it weren't for you we wouldn't have gotten to talk to the Red Zeo Ranger.

Timeline: That reminds me. I have some important news to tell you.

Zordon: Go ahead my old friend.

Timeline: You won't understand what I'm talking about now, but when the time comes this may very well save the earth.

Victor: We're listening.

Timeline: When the power is lost seek out the real source of your powers.

Joe: He's right, it makes no sense.

Timeline: I must go. I hope to see you again someday Rangers.

All Rangers: Goodbye.

Alpha: Goodbye.

Zordon: Goodbye, until we cross paths again.

Timeline teleports away.

The End
