The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers were on a distant planet securing an ancient mystical artifact Zordon wasn't to clear on the specifics all they knew was that it held the power to defeat the Machine Empire.
Jason, Billy, Zack, Trini, Kat, & Tom were neck deep in Cogs. Tom with the power of the Green and White Ranger was doing the most damage, but he couldn't do it alone he siphoned off some of the power to Kat to give her Power Bow more strength and give her more protection.
They were about to be overrun by the Cogs and their five bug themed generals, when suddenly several blasts massive fire balls significantly thinned them out. Tom was leery about the new comer because whoever it was riding on something that looked an awful lot like Serpentera. "Jason take everyone and get the Zeo. I will handle this with our new ally." Tom took back the power from Kat. The five original Rangers ran to the abandoned citadel.
A purple Power Ranger leapt from the belly of the beast and joined Tom. "Interesting." Was all the new Ranger said. They fought and defeated the Machine Empire generals.
"Tom I know you want to stay and help your friends, but you are needed to defend not only your Earth, this universe, but the every possible universe in existence from a threat far greater than any Power Ranger in the entire multiverse has ever seen. You will become the Orange Ranger." Before Tom could respond to the Purple Ranger his friends came back as the Zeo Rangers. "Tom we came back as...." Kat stopped when they realized they weren't needed. "Tom we scoured the place but there were only five crystals." Tom knew what that meant his powers were not strong enough to fight against the Machine Empire. "I am going with our friend" Before Tom could finish his sentence Wes interrupted. "He has been selected to join an elite team of Rangers fighting a threat greater than your Machine Empire." Wes opened up the dragon mouth on his staff and placed his transformation globe into it. He walked up to Tom and closed the mouth. The globe expanded to surround them both and they were taken back to their base.
