Act 1
Scene 1
Setting: The Moon Palace.

Gridster: I cannot believe that those kids have defeated two of my monsters.

Terrabot: Well it's not like they did it without breaking a sweat. Skeletron and Liquidor fought hard.

Gridster turns. He looks annoyed.

Gridster: So you think you can do better, huh?

Terrabot: Well no, I, um, just thought they tried.

Gridster: You will face the Rangers next then.

Terrabot walks away slowly. He mumbles something under his breath.

Terrabot: Great, just cause they failed I get senteced to death.

Scene 2
Setting: The Power Chamber. Billy is working on the Fire Staff.

Alpha: What exactly are you looking for Billy?

Billy lifts his head up and turns to Alpha.

Billy: I noticed a strange energy pattern coming from it during the last battle. I'm trying to locate it's source.

Zordon: Just be patient Billy. There is no hurry to find it as long as it is not harmful to the Ranger's powers.

Billy: That's just it Zordon. I'm not sure it's not.

Act 2
Scene 1
Setting: The youth center. Many different clubs and organizations have tables set up for a membership drive. Tai and Karen are looking at the different clubs.

Tai: Isn't this great?

Kara: Yeah. I hope I can find something I can really get into.

Tai: Shouldn't be too hard. There's enough to chose from.

Kara sees an enviromental club set up a few tables down.

Kara: Let's go check this one out.

She grabs Tai and pulls him over to the table. A club member greets them.

Club member: Hi. Would you like some information on Club Cleanup?

Tai: Ummm.

Kara: Sure.

The member hands them a pamphlet. Kara starts looking through it. Her eyes light up.

Kara: This should be fun. I'll join.

Club member: Great!

She slides them a clipboard.

Club member: Just sign here.

She points to the first blank line. Kara grabs the pen and signs. She slides it to Tai.

Tai: No thanks. He slides it away.

Kara: Oh don't be a spoil sport.

Tai: I'm too busy.

Club member: We don't want to force anyone to join.

Kara: Alright. Maybe I can talk him into it later. Thanks a lot.

Club member: Our first project is at the park Saturday morning. Be there.

Scene 2
Setting: Angel Grove Park. Kara has just arrived. All the other club members are there. The member who signed her up greets her.

Club member: Hi Kara. I'm Julie.

Kara: Hi. So where do I start?

Julie: We'll start by cleaning up litter. If you go over to that table you can get a bag and some gloves.

Kara: Sounds good.

She walks over to the table. She slips on a pair of gloves and grabs a bag. She goes back over to Julie.

Julie: I have to stay here in case anyone is running late. Just follow those guys over there.

Kara: Ok, bye.

She walks off and joins the others. They begin circling the park and picking up trash.

Scene 2
Setting: The Moon Palace. Gridster is viewing Kara and the rest of the club.

Girdster: It's so nice of them to clean up my new planet for me, don't you think Terrabot?

Terrabot: It sure is.

Gridster: I can use this opportunity to destroy the White Ranger. What can you do for me?

Terrabot: I could use my hate pollen. She'll be so miserable the other Rangers won't ever be able to stand her.

Gridster: Sounds kind of weak. What else can you do?

Terrabot: That's about it master.

Gridster becomes agitated.

Gridster: You're about useless! Why did I ever create such a weakling?

Terrabot shrinks back a little.

Terrabot: I don't know.

Gridster: It doesn't matter. Just as long as you defeat that Ranger.

Terrabot: Yes sir.

He teleports away.

Scene 3
Setting: The Power Chamber. Billy is still working with the Fire Staff. Suddenly a flash appears on the monitor. Billy looks up quickly.

Alpha: What was that?

Billy: I don't know. Help me bring up the sequence.

They both work at the consoles. The image flashes past again in reverse.

Billy: Right there Alpha.

Alpha: Right.

He presses a button and the sequence plays through again.

Billy: That's strange. It looks like...

He doesn't finish the sentence and starts altering the sequence.

Zordon: What have you found?

Billy: I'm not sure. Can you bring up the energy signature of the Fire Ranger power.

Alpha: Bringing up now.

The energy sequence plays above the image. They are very simillar.

Billy: Amazing. Look how close they are.

Zordon: This could be very important.

Billy: Let's overlay the signals.

Alpha turns a knob and the signals overlap each other. Billy, Alpha, and Zordon all stare in disbelief.

Alpha: It can't be.

Billy: But it is.

Zordon: Yes, it is a new Ranger power.

Scene 4
Setting: Back at the park. Kara is just tossing a full garbage bag into the back of a truck.

Julie: Not bad. How many is that for you?

Kara: Four so far today.

Julie: Keep it up and we might get this whole park done today.

Kara chuckles a little. Her communicator goes off.

Julie: What was that?

Kara: I'll be back. I gotta take care of something quick.

Julie: Don't be gone long.

Kara: I won't.

She runs to a nearby picnic shelter and hides behind it. She activates her communicator.

Kara: Go ahead.

Billy's voice: Hurry, I need to see all of you at the Power Chamber.

Kara: Ok.

She presses a button on the communicator and teleports away.

Scene 5
Setting: Power Chamber. Kara is the last to arrive.

Kara: What's going on?

Zordon: When we created the Fire Staff we recognized 5 powers it contained.

Billy: During the last battle I started noticeing a new energy pattern.

Victor: What does that mean.

Billy: Well at first I thought it was a glitch in the power system but when I checked it out it matched the sequence of your powers perfectly.

Tai: Whoa. Does that mean what I think it does?

Zordon: Yes Rangers. There is a 6th Eastern Ranger power.

The Rangers all look at each other in shock.

Joe: Wow, another ranger could really come in handy.

Karen: Gridster will never stop us now.

Billy: I'll start on a morpher immediatly.

Victor: Great.

Kara: Oh! I almost forgot. I have to get back to my club.

Karen: See you Kara.

Tai: Yeah, have fun picking up trash.

Kara: Bye.

She teleports away.

Scene 6
Setting: Angel Grove park. Kara runs back to the group.

Kara: I'm back.

Julie: Took you long enough.

Kara: Sorry, it was important.

Julie: Whatever. We gotta hurry and catch up to the rest.

They walk towards the rest of the group. As soon as they get out of sight Terrabot teleports in.

Terrabot: Time to get down to business.

He sneaks through the park and gets ahead of the group. The group begins working again.

Terrabot: This will be easier than I thought. Hate Pollen!

Tiny spores come out of openings on his body. They float over to the group.

Julie: Wow. There sure is a lot of pollen.

Kara: Yeah, it's wierd.

As the group members breath it in their eyes flash red.

Julie: Hey stupid! What do you think you're doing?

Kara: Well, I'm trying to get some work done but you keep geting in my way.

Julie: Nobody is forcing you to stay. Just leave.

Kara: I might.

Terrabot is laughing behind some bushes.

Terrabot: This is perfect. If I can't destroy those Rangers surley she will.

Victor: Come on guys, over here.

They head to a back corner.

Victor: We read you.

Zordon's voice: Destroyers are attacking in the park. You must stop them.

Kara: Whatever.

Victor and Karen run towards a group of destroyers. Karen grabs one by the arm and flips it onto the ground. Another tries to trip her but she jumps. She kicks it in the chest on her way down.

Karen: Thought you were pretty slick, huh?

Victor is locking fists with one. It kicks him in the stomach. As he stumbles back he pulls out his laser pistol and fires. The destroyer falls. Joe blasts three with his Onyx Charger. Tai jumps up and kicks one into two others. All three fall. Kara is standing away from the action. Joe hits one more then they all vanish. The others walk up to Kara.

Tai: We could've used some help there.

Kara: Why should I help you out?

Victor: Because you're a Ranger just like us.

Kara: Really?

She powers down.

Kara: Then I quit.

She drops her morpher on the ground and walks away.

Joe: Did I miss something here?

Karen: I think we all did.

Scene 5
Setting: The Power Chamber. Billy is at the console working. The other Rangers are behind him talking.

Victor: What happened with Kara?

Zordon: I am searching for that answer as we speak.

Joe: I know one thing. We definitly have to get her back or we're toast.

Karen: Gridster will waste no time if there are only 4 of us.

Billy walks over to them.

Billy: Actually I've almost completed the morpher for that new power we discovered.

Victor: Great. It looks like we may need it.

Zordon: I've discovered why Kara is acting so strangely.

Tai: I bet she's just sick of us.

Zordon: In a way that is correct.

Tai looks surprised.

Tai: What?!

Zordon: She is under a hate spell cast by Terrabot.

Billy: I'd look for a way to help but the computers are all tied up working on that morpher.

Tai: Don't worry about it. I'll just talk to her.

Joe: Oh great. He'll just make it worse, I bet.

Tai: Thanks a lot for the vote of confidence Joe.

Joe: I'm just saying you two don't get along the best.

Tai: Whatever. I'm going.

He teleports away.

Scene 6
Setting: A street in Angel Grove. The sun is setting. Kara is walking down the street when Tai catches up to her.

Tai: Kara! Slow down. We need to talk.

Kara: There's nothing to talk about. I'm sick of risking my life for a bunch of losers who could care less.

Tai: They do care. In case you haven't noticed this city depends on us.

Kara: Not on me. Not anymore. I quit.

Tai: But...

Kara: Just leave me alone. If you follow me I'll call the cops.

Tai: But I.....

He stops dead in his tracks. She just keeps walking.

Tai: That didn't go very well.

Tai: Lightning Strikers, power up!

Karen: Amethyst Blaster, power up!

Joe: Onyx Charger, power up!

Alpha: Calm down everyone, please.

Zordon: I think we may have a solution to your problem.

Victor: What do you mean?

Zordon: Allow me to introduce the newest editon to your team.

A tall kid comes out of a doorway and walks to the center of the room.

Zordon: This is Max. He is the new Gold Thunder Ranger.

All the others look on in amazement.

He charges at the Rangers. Victor trips him up. He goes flying into Tai and Joe who both kick at the same time. Karen jumps on his back and he lands hard face first.

Max: My turn. Thunder Sabre, power up!

His sabre appears in his hands. He holds it above his head. The blade glows and he swings it right at Terrabot's head. Terrabot's body goes limp.

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: Go to Elemental 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.

Zordon: Not just Power Rangers. The Eastern Rangers.

Scene 2
Setting: Angel Grove Youth Center. Kara and Max are talking.

Max: So what was the coolest thing you guys have ever done?

Max: You can do that?

Kara: One thing you'll learn about being a Ranger. You can do anything you set your mind to.

The End

Back to Eastern Rangers
