Operation Lightspeed (1)

In the Sahara desert, three nomadic travelers stumble upon a set of ruins. They wander inside, and unseal the cover on a tomb. This releases set of ancient demon spirits, which immediately float off towards America. Word of the spirits' release spreads to a city called Mariner Bay, to a secret military operation known as Lightspeed. The man in charge, Captain William Mitchell, responds to this news by unsealing a set of files. He sends his daughter Dana, a member of Lightspeed and an in-training Paramedic, to seek out each person listed in the color coded files. Carter Grayson, Joel Rawlings, Kelsey Winslow, and Chad are all brought by helicopter, and then submarine, to the Lightspeed Aquabase, located beneath the waters of Mariner Bay.

There, Captain Mitchell briefs them on the situation. It seems that 5000 years ago, the area Mariner Bay was founded on was run by demons. A Warlock was able to capture them, and imprison their spirits inside a tomb. They've since been awaiting the day when the demons would return to reclaim their land. Lightspeed has developed technology to combat the demons, by making the four of them, each chosen for their special skills, to become Lightspeed Power Rangers. At first, the four have doubts, until Carter recalls recently seeing a strange spirit in a burning building. They reconsider, and are given Rescue Morphers. Dana discovers that she will be the fifth member, Pink, having been groomed by her father to be a Ranger for many years.

In a pocket dimension located above the city known as the Skull Cavern, the demon spirits take up shop. Diabolico, Loki, Vypra and Impus. It's explained that they are preparing for the return of their ruler, Queen Bansheera, by destroying Mariner Bay and restoring the Queen's palace where it once stood. They send one of their lesser demons, named Ghouligan, to begin the assault. Captain Mitchell tells them to use their Rescue Morphers, which they do. They Morph into Lightspeed Rangers, and use their added strength to save the citizens, and destroy Ghouligan with their Rescue Blasters. They're cheered by the civilians, and are later commended by those at Lightspeed. Captain Mitchell reminds them that what they faced was only one monster, and tougher ones await.

Lightspeed Teamwork (2)

At the Skull Cavern, discussion between the demons turns to finding the headquarters of the Rangers. Loki reveals it's underwater, and that water is dangerous to demons. An additional demon is introduced, Jinxer, a fly-like servant. Diabolico orders him to create a monster capable of wiping Mariner Bay off the face of the Earth.A meeting is called at the Lightspeed Aquabase. On the way to Weapons Lab, Joel bumps into a beautiful, dark haired female with glasses and a lab coat. He tries to impress her with his Rescue Morpher, and status as the Green Ranger. While he goes off to buy her flowers, she meets with the rest of the Ranger recruits. Her name is Ms. Fairweather, and she's the genius behind the technology used at Lightspeed. She introduces them to the Rail Rescues, a set of train cars which carry their individual Lightspeed Rescuezords into battle. In the city, an apparent asteroid strikes down, and creates an unnatural volcano. From within that, a giant rocklike demon named Magmavore emerges. Our heroes go on alert, including Joel, who missed the debriefing. The Rangers board their Rail Rescues, and use their Rescuezords to take care of several disasters in the city. After saving a few lives, time comes to combine the Zords into the Lightspeed Megazord. At first, Joel hot-dogs his Aero Rescue, thinking he can handle everything himself. He eventually listens to commands from both Mitchell & Fairweather, and the Megazord is formed. The Lightspeed Megazord combats Magmavore, and finishes him off by lifting him up with its ladder-arms and tossing him back into the volcano he was spawned from. Later at the Aquabase, Joel gives Fairweather the flowers. He begins to talk bad about the brainiac Zord designer who was trying to tell him how to fly earlier. She's offended by his remarks, and chews him out. His teammates laugh at him, when he realizes Fairweather's the designer he was badmouthing, and he just got shot down.

Trial by Fire

The five Lightspeed Rescue recruits go on their first training run in a test area. Carter gets the fastest time, but the lowest score, due to his reckless attitude. Meanwhile, Vypra implants quake spikes beneath a skyscraper, attempting to level the city with an earthquake. The Rangers come and stop her, but as she escapes, she damages a crowded parking lot. Captain Mitchell orders Carter to put out the fires before attempt to save the people. He reluctantly does so, while a small boy is injured badly when debris falls on him. The boy goes into a coma, reminding Carter of his youth, when as he child, he became trapped in a burning building. A mysterious fireman pulled him out, and since then he's tried to follow in the man's footsteps. Carter feels he's not cut out to be a Ranger, only to discover that by putting out the fire, he prevented nearby gas tanks from exploding. By the fact he followed Mitchell's order instead of his gut reaction, he prevented the citizens from even deadlier damage. Mitchell assures Carter that he believes he's a great Red Ranger. Carter helps his team destroy Vypra's quake spikes, and destroy a new giant demon. Later, the boy Carter failed to save comes out of his coma, safe and sound.

Riding the Edge

While roller skating one morning, Kelsey manages to save a woman named Nancy Cooper's dog Dorsie. Later, Kelsey learns that Nancy is an ace pilot, who'll be flying a Mariner Bay Space Shuttle into space for a routine quick mission. Meanwhile, Diabolico introduces himself to the Rangers, via an image in the sky. He informs them about his plans to wipe out the city and rebuild Queen Bansheera's palace. He sends a mutant named Whirlin' to attack the city, in the form of a deadly twister. Nancy's shuttle is caught up in it on her way back to Earth. The Rangers all use their Lightspeed Rescuezords as a team to guide her out of control shuttle to safety. Whirlin' is destroyed by the Lightspeed Megazord Saber, and Nancy is gratefully reunited with her pal Kelsey, after learning that she's the Yellow Ranger.

A Matter of Trust

The Rangers are given the task of helping a scientist named Dr. Hanson deliver a powerful fuel cell to the Aquabase. Dana, though, is told by her father and commanding officer, Captain Mitchell, to pick up an old friend of his instead. She reluctantly does so, driving the old southern man, named Earl, to the Aquabase. The other Rangers encounter a demon called Fireor, who tries to get the fuel cell from them. Dana wants to go to their aide, but her father denies her permission. She believes Earl and her father are going fishing, only to find out that the ice cooler he has with him actually contains the true fuel cell. Vypra learns the other Rangers are just a decoy, and attacks Earl & Dana. They manage to get away, and keep the fuel cell from getting too overheated. After the cell is taken to the Aquabase, Dana rejoins her teammates, and they stomp out Fireor's flames for good with the Megazord.

Wheels of Destruction

At the Aquabase's Weapons Lab, Ms. Fairweather is working on new tools for the Rangers. Joel tries to ask her out, only to get called off to action. A bat demon aptly named "Gold Beaked Monster" is joined by the Batlings, but ends up being destroyed easily by the Rangers' Rescue Blasters. Vypra shows up suddenly, in her new super-fast custom made buggie, known as the Vyprari. She makes quick work of the Rangers, blasting them with its weapons system. The Rescue Rover gets damaged heavily in the fight. Soon at the Aquabase, Joel continues flirting with Ms. Fairweather. Due to a misunderstanding, she leads him to believe that he's building a supersonic jet pack just for him. His ego is popped when she reveals to the whole team that she's created Lightspeed Cycles for each one of them. Using the Ranger-colored bikes, they're able to knock the Vyprari down a peg. Plus still have time to easily defeat another aptly named demon, called Elestomp, with just the Rescuebird! Later, Joel tries to persuade Fairweather into getting more personal. She makes up a lie about Lightspeed Regulation 322.1, which states there is to be no fraternization between squad members. He's disappointed, but she promises that if there were no rule against it, they'd have a great time. His spirits lifted, Joel heads out on his Green Lightspeed Cycle for a test run, happily cheering all the way.

Cyborg Rangers

When a demon named Strikning attacks, the Lightspeed Rescue Rangers are unable to stop him. Luckily they get back-up in the form of five robotic doubles, the Cyborg Rangers! They share the same Lightspeed powers and suits, but with darker boots & gloves, plus antennas. It turns out, that the higher ups in the Lightspeed military chain of command (that being an older man named General McKnight, and his main scientist, Dr. Harlan) are behind them. Captain Mitchell is helpless, as McKnight strips the five human Rescue Recruits of their Morphers. It's decided that those "kids" are less reliable than the five platinum-alloy skinned, super-strong and remote controlled Cyborg Rangers. Fairweather has concerns about the one thing they lack that only a human can bring: a heart. Soon enough, the Cyborgs fight Strikning, and wind up short-circuiting. They go berserk, attacking Dr. Hansen and destroying buildings. The five powerless Ranger recruits manage to save Hansen, and Captain Mitchell reinstates them. They regain their Rescue Morphers, defeat the demon, destroy the rampaging Cyborg Rangers, and are thanked by a humbled General McKnight.

Up to the Challenge

Chad goes for a morning scuba swim in the waters around the Aquabase. Soon, he eats breakfast with Kelsey, and convinces her to try some Tai Chi with him in the city. While calmly practicing together, a punk named Brian spots the well-known Blue Ranger, and tries to pick a fight with him in order to impress his girlfriend Sheila. Chad, the karate expert, takes him down without missing a beat. Soon, all five Rangers face a new demon, Smogger. He can release deadly sprays of gas and firepower. Kelsey ends up getting caught in a backdraft created by the demon, and gets blasted into a coma, despite Chad's attempt to save her.

Meanwhile, Brian, having lost his girlfriend, seeks Vypra's help. He wants to destroy Chad, so she grants him increased power, turning him into her own zombie. Chad & Brian fight later, viciously. Chad manages to convince Brian that what he's doing isn't right, and they break the spell together. Kelsey wakes up in the hospital, and drags herself into battle. Ms. Fairweather gives her a new weapon, the Rescue Speeder, which is a high-powered sidecar to the Red Lightspeed Cycle. She uses it to help defeat Smogger. Later, Brian changes his dominating-female influenced ways, and happily teaches a karate class. Kelsey plans to teach the shy Chad how to talk to girls.

Go Volcanic (1)

Dana takes the day off to head up to the nearby dormant volcano known as Mount Jasmine. She makes the mistake of taking the bus there, and ends up being held at gunpoint when the bus is taken captive by a bank robber. Meanwhile, in Skull Cavern, Queen Bansheera makes her spirit-form debut. The demons explain the situation, with the city now where her palace once was. They increase their efforts to wipe out Mariner Bay, with the baby Impus coming up with a plan (Jinxer, his babysitter, can understand the cooing creature) to channel Mount Jasmine's lava flow through the city. They send the demon called Trifire (a three headed dog) to initiate this.

His actions cause the volcano to become more active, and for the bus with Dana, the hostages, and the bandit, to swerve out of control. Everyone comes together to keep the bandit from falling to his doom when the bus ends up hanging off a cliff.

As the Rangers prepare to finally defeat their enemy, Captain Mitchell orders them to hold their fire and allow the Titanium Ranger to live, they do so, and walk away from him, despite his pleas to finish the fight with him.

Truth Discovered (2)

This wasn’t the case, in truth, Mitchell was forced to surrender Ryan to Diabolico when the Demon offered to save his life after the wreck, but as a consequence, Ryan would live under his hand.

Falkar plants explosive feathers everywhere, and the only way to deactivate them is to defeat the Demon Troika before sunset.

Ryan, whilst contemplating where he should go, is told by an elderly woman to follow his heart, only then will he reach his destination. Ryan's soul searching finally tells him to do the right thing, after saving the life of a young child from Falkar's feathers, Ryan opens the box and finds the Titanium Morpher, Ryan morphs into the Titanium Ranger and helps the badly wounded Rangers defeat the Demon Troika. After their victory, Ryan is welcomed into Lightspeed Rescue, but later that night, Ryan has a terrifying vision of being tortured by Diabolico, who burns the tattoo of a Cobra onto his back, with each day the Cobra will crawl up Ryan's body, until it finally strikes, and kills him. When Ryan wakes up, he finds the tattoo on his back, his vision has become reality...
