The zords jump into the air and begin to form together. Before they join there is a flash of light and each zord falls to the ground and shuts down. The Rangers are ejected and the zords teleport away.

Tai: What was that all about?

Karen: I don't know, but it can't be good.

They all teleport to the Power Chamber.

Alpha: How odd. I'll run a check on them.

Victor: I'll contact Billy. He might have an idea.

Billy's voice can be heard on the communicator.

Billy: I'm on my way.

There is a flash and he teleports in. Alpha shows him a printout from the computer.

Billy: This is interesting.

Karen: What is it?

Billy: Well it seems all of you are connected emotionaly to your zords. Are any of you not getting along?

Kara: Well...

Joe: I kinda...

Karen: You see, he...

Tai: I was just trying to...

Billy: As long as you have bitter feelings towards each other the zords will also reject each other. You have to get over this now.

Joe: I'm sorry I forgot your birthday Karen.

Karen: I forgive you, but try a little harder next time.

Joe: I will.

Kara: Well Tai?

Tai: What? I didn't do anything!

Kara: Why you little!

She tries to punch him. Max pulls her back.

Max: The world needs that Megazord. Just let it go.

Kara: Fine. Forget about it Tai. Just please stay out of my personal life.

Tai: Sure.

Billy: Speaking of Zords, Max, I almost have yours done.

Max: My own Zord? This just keeps getting better.

Billy: I have a few more details to finish but that's it.

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.

Karen: Let's show this guy what we're made of.

The Amethyst Ninja, Onyx Deputy, and Firezord walk in front of Shadower.

Victor: That's far enough.

Shadower: You three aren't gonn stop me.

Kara: Then how about the 5 of us.

Shadower turns around. The Lightning Ninja and Diamond Slasher are behind him.

Tai: Make this easy on yourself and give up.

Shadower: Never. Dark rift!

A shadow falls over the Lightning Ninja and Diamond Slasher. Shadower turns to the others and does the same thing. All the zords stumble a little, then sparks fly from them.

Victor: Is everyone ok?

Joe: I think so.

Tai: My zord is still in one piece.

Karen: My power grid is breaking up.

Kara: I don't think we can take him like this.

Victor: Then we won't.

Joe: Think we can get the Megazord to work this time?

Tai: It's worth a shot.

All Rangers: 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.

All Rangers: Elemental Megazord, power up!

Shadower: So you got it to work this time. Big deal. I can still take you out.

Victor: Just try it.

Shadower punches the megazord. Sparks fly and it takes a few steps back. It lifts it's arms and grabs Shadower. He is picked up and thrown away from the city. He begins to stand back up.

Victor: Elemental Megazord Sabre!

A sabre drops from the sky into the Megazord's hand. At the base of the blade are the symbols of the Ranger's elements. The symbols light up as the blade strikes Shadower. A white light begins to shine inside him.

Tai: That should do it.

Karen: Not quite, look.

The light darkens and Shadower starts laughing.

Shadower: I told you you couldn't take me.

Joe: That is not good. That was our strongest attack.

Victor reaches for his communicator.

Victor: Zordon, we can't take him. We need the Gold Zord.

Scene 3
Setting: Inside the Power Chamber. Victor's voice is heard.

Zordon: We are almost finished.

Billy walks into the room.

Billy: Just a few more adjustments on the console should do it.

He presses some buttons. A status report appears on a screen. A bar on it begins to fill. When it completes the screen changes and says "Thunder Battlezord Ready". Billy turns to Max.

Billy: It's finished. You better get out there.

Max: BACK TO ACTION!

Setting: The battle. The Elemental Megazord is struggling with Shadower. Max arrives.

Kara: Look, it's Max.

Max: Thunder Battlezord power, now!

The zord holding bay opens. A gold streak of light leaves. As it strikes the ground there is a loud blast. The zord appears. It is Gold with white stripes. Two large blasters are mounted to it's shoulders. Max teleports into the cockpit.

Max: Thunder Battlezord, power up!

He walks over to Shadower.

Shadower: Oh, another tin can to trash.

He slames the Elemental Megazord into the ground and heads for the Thunder Battlezord.

Max: Guys, hit him with the sabre while I blast him.

Victor: Right.

Max: Thunder Destroyer.

The blasters fire and nail Shadower. At the same time the Elemental Megazord sabre hits him. He squints in pain, then falls to the ground.

Shadower: No! It wasn't suppose to work this way.

He explodes.

Victor: Now that is more like it.

Kara: Not bad Max.

Max: Now we can really show Gridster who's stronger.

Gridster: I guess so.

Scene 2
Setting: Angel Grove park. All the Rangers are there. Kara, Tai, Max, and Karen are sitting on a bench. Joe and Victor are on the ground beside it.

Kara: That was way too close.

Joe: Yeah, I don't know about you guys but I don't want to risk not being able to use the Megazord when we need it.

Victor: Then all we have to do is not hold a grudge.

Karen: That's easier said then done. Especialy when your boyfriend forgets your birthday.

Joe: But I....

Max: I think we should just drop this before Gridster tries to kill us agian.

They all laugh.
