Power Rangers: The Return of Lord Zedd
Chapter 1 – Scene 1 – Somewhere in the Deep Reaches of Space, 6 years ago
After the cataclysmic battle with the newest Queen of Evil, Astromema, the Red Space Ranger Andros makes the difficult decision to shatter Zordon's energy tube in order to save the galaxy. With this epic battle ending in victory for the Space Rangers and evil believed to be defeated once and for all, the space rangers retired and become unable to morph again. A year later, Andros flies off to the planet of Eltar after picking up a mysterious energy reading on his radar.
"NOW APPROACHING: PLANET OF ELTAR."
As the Astro Megaship's navigation computer alerts Andros.
Andros looks out his ship's bridge window to get a better view of his location. His eyes shift back and forth then looks down at his computer viewing the information it gives off.
"This is kind of intriguing to find such a powerful energy reading here. D.E.C.A., take her down near where that reading is coming from on the surface."
Within moments, the ship begins its atmospheric descent into the planet upon Andros's command.
"STAGE ONE: ATMOSPHERIC DESCENT, INITIATED."
Upon hearing D.E.C.A., Andros walks away from the window and sits down in his captain's seat and buckles himself in preparation for the descent. Within moments, the ship begins to shake due to entering the planet's atmosphere.
"STAGE 2, DESCENT SEQUENCE: BEGINNING - T-MINUS: 5 MINUTES, UNTIL STAGE 3."
As 2nd stage of the descent began, the ships exterior began to heat up and flame up due to ship's entry into the atmosphere. Andros gripped tightly to his chair's arm rests as the shakiness got worse with each passing moment. Within 5 minutes, the visual outside the command bridge's windows became clear.
"ENTERING ELTARIAN ATMOSPHERE: COMPLETE. STAGE 3, COOLING AND LANDING STAGE: INITIATING. ASTRO-MEGASHIP LANDING, IN T-MINUS: 2 MINUTES."
Andros continuously looked watched out the command bridge's windows as the ship landed. On the planet's surface, he could see an individual who seemed to look "divine" and seemed to have a bright aura about him. Then the figure stared intently at the Megaship as it landed. Andros quickly unbuckled his seat belt and ran out to his ship's hatch. Suddenly, a familiar voice spoke as if in complete joy over his 'expected' arrival.
"Ah Andros, it's good to see you're alright. I'm sorry for causing so much trouble and your ship.
Andros stepped off the ship's ramp and slowly walked up to the man who stood before him in surprise.
"Zordon?! I thought you were gone…I shattered your energy tube during the invasion. How can you be here?"
Zordon walked up to Andros and placed his hands on his shoulders then spoke in a calm voice.
"It seems that you didn't destroy me when you shattered my energy tube a year ago, but rather freed me from a time warp that Rita Repulsa had put me into a many millennia ago. I have only just arrived here on Eltar myself after having navigated myself here, in this time and space."
After Zordon's explanation, Andros's mind continues to wonder of what service he can be to Zordon, all while still wanting to ask so many questions that have been plaguing him in years past. Before he can ask utter a single word, Zordon smiles slightly and adds:
"I am sure you have many questions for me, Andros, but I will answer them all in time. But for now, we should return to Earth. Earth is several light years away from here and there is much we must do first before we reach Earth. Will you assist me in this task, Andros?"
Andros, without question, answers with a firm 'yes' and runs back inside to the ship's bridge. Zordon follows closely behind and then sits in the passenger seat closeby. Within moments, the ship takes off and leaves planet Eltar, on its journey back to Earth.
