Power Rangers Turbo

Running through 1997, Power Rangers Turbo was the fifth season of the Power Rangers franchise and was launched by Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie. It adapted a lot of footage from Gekisou Sentai Carranger.

The series opens with the Power Rangers celebrating the defeat of Maligore. Soon graduation time rolls around and Tommy Oliver, Kat Hillard, Adam Park and Tanya Sloan all graduate and leaving the new 12-year-old Blue Ranger Justin Stewart at school after he has skiped a couple of grades because of his intellect.

Just as normal life resumes, Divatox attacks the Power Rangers; then Zordon and Alpha 5 depart to return to Eltar (Zordon’s home planet).

In their place comes Dimitria of Inquiris and Alpha 6. Other changes include Lt. Stone taking over the Juice Bar and Bulk and Skull being turned into chimps.

As the series progresses The Blue Senturion arrives from the year 2000, with a message for Dimitria and the Rangers that Lord Zedd, Rita, The Machine Empire and Divatox will team up to destroy the universe, but fails to show complete message due to Divatox corrupting it!

Later, Tommy, Kat, Adam and Tanya, all of whom are leaving for college, are asked to pass on their powers to students T.J. Johnson, Cassie Chan, Carlos Vallerte and Ashley Hammond as the new Red, Pink, Green and Yellow Rangers respectively with Justin being the only remaining member of the team. Also, from time to time, the Phantom Ranger turns up to help!

The team eventually learns that Dark Specter has captured Zordon, though Zordon is able to warn the Rangers not to rescue him as it would leave the Earth defenceless. A short while later, the Rangers lose both the Turbo and Rescue Megazords in a battle with the most powerful monster that Divatox created, Goldgoyle.

As Dimitria and the Blue Senturion leave for Eltar to help Zordon, Divatox finds the Power Chamber’s location. Her army of grunts and monsters infiltrate the Chamber, defeating the team and destroying the Power Chamber.

However, before Divatox tries to finish off the Rangers, she receives a message that Zordon has been captured and under the order of Dark Specter leaves for the Cimmerian planet.

The powerless Rangers then leave Earth and head for space to save Zordon, with Justin choosing to stay behind with his father, although Justin does make an appearance in an episode of Power Rangers in Space to help the Space Rangers. These events lead to the next incarnation of the franchise, entitled Power Rangers in Space.
