The Astro Megaship was a spacecraft that served as the base and personal transportation for the Space Rangers and Galaxy Rangers' base of operations.

Overview

The Astro Megaship was a vast spaceship made up of six decks with at least sixteen rooms to live in, machines designed to create food out of nothing called Cynthitrons, a hangar full of gadgets and containing the Megatank, and its own sentient AI named D.E.C.A. who was only ever heard via speaks and seen as red periscopes. Aside from the shuttle hangar, the Megaship consisted of 6 decks for its crew which contained a vault where the Astro Morphers were eventually stored at the heart of the ship. The Astro Megaship was capable of faster than light travel allowing it to voyage between solar systems. From the ship's bridge, the Megaship's crew operated the entire ship. The ship's steering controls, sensors, weapons systems, communications equipment, as well as D.E.C.A. were all accessed from here. The bridge was located on Megadeck 1 along the front part of the Astro Megaship. The SimuDeck, located on Megadeck 5, was the training room. The advanced holographic and robotic technologies in the SimuDeck allow the Rangers to practice their skills in a realistic yet safe environment. The SimuDeck could be programmed to display any type of location and can also create automated opponents for Rangers to fight such as Craterites. Since the SimuDeck could be programmed to recreate any environment, it can also be used for non-combat purposes such as recreation.

After the Lost Galaxy Rangers took up residence inside it, the living quarters were no longer used (perferring to live in Terra Venture itself) and the Astro Megaship was used far less regularly. However, the recreation room for eating and having fun was completely dismantled and replaced with and turned into a docking bay for the Jet Jammers.

Weapons

The Astro Megaship was quite capable of defending itself from attackers with its shields, thick hull, and 2 double barreled laser turrets. D.E.C.A. normally handled firing the Megaship's weapons but they could be controlled manually from the bridge. The Megaship also came equipped with 2 ion cannons mounted on the bottom of the Megaship.

Zord History

Past

The origins of the Astro Megaship was created by Zordon and Alpha 5 on Eltar. It came into the possession of Andros and served as his base of operations during his attacks against the United Alliance of Evil.

In Space

Whilst Andros discreetly attends the United Alliance of Evil on the Cimmerian Planet, D.E.C.A picks up the Mega Shuttle drifting in space and brings it aboard. It was owned and piloted by Andros, created by Zordon and Alpha 5 on Eltar. He met up with the former Turbo Rangers and Alpha 6. Andros initially wants nothing to do with them until they are captured by Astronema and he recruits them into his new Space Rangers although they soon find that they are outmatched by the Sphinx Ship's firepower. However, Alpha reconfigures the Mega Shuttle to be able to combine with the Megaship to form the Astro Megazord which easily destroys the ship. Tvicon.png TV STORY-From Out of Nowhere

Realizing that the Astro Megazord is unformable without the Mega Shuttle, Astronema tries to destroy the NASADA facility where it is being held with Ecliptor but it escapes and the Megazord defeats him. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Save Our Ship

The Astro Megaship is later used by the Space Rangers to scout out a planet only to come into conflict with Scavengers and the Lunatick monster which hatches out of an egg onboard their ship. They are overwhelmed until the comatose Zhane the Silver Ranger awakens due to a malfunction and helps to defeat Lunatick with the Astro Delta Megazord finishing him off. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Survival of the Silver

The Astro and Delta Megazords are used to help the Mega Winger in battle against Red Ecliptor but the latter is completely destroyed and the former completely crippled before they defeat him. Although the Megaship remains operational after this, the damage prevents it from being used in battle again. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Impenetrable Web

After the United Alliance of Evil is wiped out at the expense of Zordon's life, the Astro Megaship is used to go to a celebration of KO-35 before returning to Earth. Once there, the Space Rangers abandon it since it is no longer needed and place the Astro Morphers into storage in the Megaship's vault. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Countdown to Destruction

Lost Galaxy

A year later, the Megaship has been turned into a museum with Alpha 6 as the curator and overseen by Damon Henderson before launching with the new space station Terra Venture. After Maya of Mirinoi comes to beg for help against Furio, Kai convinces the two to help him steal the ship to rescue his friends after they go through a portal to the planet. After escaping Mirinoi with the Quasar Sabers and becoming the Galaxy Rangers, the Megaship becomes thier base of operations but is rarely used. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Quasar Quest

When the Psycho Rangers return from capture and kidnap most of the Galaxy Rangers, the Space Rangers reclaim thier Astro Morphers and help to destroy them although Psycho Pink survives. Tvicon.png TV STORY-To The Tenth Power

When the Galaxy Megazord has trouble against Psycho Pink, the Space Rangers use the Astro Megazord one last time to destroy her. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Power of Pink

During the final battle with Trakeena, the Astro Megaship is used as a desperate attack to stop the suicide attacks by the Stingwingers commanded by the insane Trakeena. However, it is severely damaged when the Scorpion Stinger caught the ship in its pincers and begins crushing it so the Galaxy Rangers are forced to activate the self-destruct and flee. They barely escape before it explodes, killing D.E.C.A and severely damaging the Scorpion Stinger which causes it to crash on Mirinoi's moon. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Journey's End

Astro Megaship Mark II

The Astro Megaship Mark II is the successor of the Astro Megaship, created in the shipyards of KO-35. For Tommy Oliver's mission to stop General Venjix from unearthing Serpentera, Andros introduced the Astro Megaship Mark II, which was reportedly "fresh off the construction yards of KO-35" and is reportedly the fastest spaceship in the galaxy. This Megaship serves to transport the Red Rangers to the moon, and it is also where the Veteran Red Rangers are briefed. The Alpha robot present on board is Alpha 7; the rebuilt Alpha 5 since Alpha 6 is still living on Mirinoi. The Astro Megaship Mark II was constructed and commanded by Andros as part of an assault on the Machine Empire's remaining generals. It was on that Megaship that Tommy and the other Red Rangers meet for their mission on the Moon, to stop the Machine Empire and Serpentera. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Forever Red

Appearances: PRIS Episodes 1-43, LG Episodes 2, 3, 5, 9, 11, 13-15, 22, 26-33, 39, 42, 44, WF Episode 34

Astro Megashuttle

Astro Megashuttle launchpad

The Astro Megashuttle was originally a space shuttle built to accommodate astronauts on a search for new planets. The shuttle was a part of the NASADA space program, built on Earth and ready for launch in its own silo. After the destruction of the Power Chamber, the Rangers could not go after Zordon to save him. Justin, the Blue Ranger, snuck into the NASADA building and told the commander that the Power Rangers needed to use the shuttle on an emergency mission. The commander agreed to allow the Rangers access to the shuttle, and from the ground Justin watches as his friends blast off into space, ending the Turbo series.

After the Rangers left Earth, they came across a larger ship that uses its tractor beam to pull the shuttle inside, in spite of the Rangers' outcries. The series begins to pick up once the shuttle docks with the ship. During the first few episodes, the shuttle is used to ferry the Rangers back and forth from the Astro Megaship to Earth. Astronema notices that without the shuttle the Astro Megazord cannot complete its transformation, prompting multiple attempts to destroy the shuttle.

Capabilities: Being the Astro Megazord's head was one of the major operating systems the shuttle had, though before it was the head to the Megazord, it was a self-contained space shuttle. The shuttle had its own thrust capabilities, though it needed major boost power to blast off from the ground into orbit; thus, it had its own booster rocket sled attached to the bottom, used on at least two occasions. It isn't clear where the boosters would go when not in use; however, it could transform into the Astro Megazord Blaster.

Appearances: PRT Episode 45, PRIS Episodes 1-43, LG Episode 31

Astro Megazord

The Astro Megazord was armed with the Astro Megazord Blaster (a transformed state of the MegaShuttle's booster sled),  the Astro Megazord Saber (usually formed out of energy in the Megazord's hand), and the Astro Megazord Shield (typically attached to the underside of the Megaship when not in use), The Astro Megazord Saber had multiple attacks. First, it could be charged with energy and be used to deliver any number of powered-up slashes to the enemy. They could launch the Astro Megazord Saber into a monster's shoulder and energize it, obliterating them.

The Astro Megazord had two unnamed finishers; the first (and most commonly used) was energizing the Astro Megazord Saber with yellow pixelated energy before unleashing a devastating energy slash. The less commonly used finisher involved charging up the Astro Megazord Blaster to maximum power and unleashing a devastating spiral blast out of its barrel strong enough to obliterate monsters.

Appearances: PRIS Episodes 2, 3, 6-17, 20, 21, 23-26, 29-31, 36, 37, 40, LG Episodes 31

Astro Megazord Dino Charger

The Astro Megazord represents the Space Rangers for the In Space Dino Charger, released as part of a special set of Dino Charger Power Packs. In Space's case, it featured the Red Space Ranger, the Silver Space Ranger, the Astro Megazord, and the In Space title. This Charger was paired with the Lightspeed Rescue Dino Charger.


Astro Megazord Ninja Power Star

The Astro Megazord Ninja Power Star is a special Ninja Power Star that bears the likeness of the Astro Megazord and is marked with the kanji for "machine". This star was originally a part of the Ninja Steel toyline, but was ultimately never released.


Behind the Scenes

  • According to Shuki Levy, during the production of Turbo's "Honey, I Shrunk the Rangers", the Astro Megazord originally was going to be called the "Galaxy Megazord" but this was scrapped after the episode was cancelled. The name Galaxy Megazord was used in Lost Galaxy.

Notes

  • The Astro Megaship was the first base that could transform into a Megazord.
  • The deluxe toy had the capability of attaching the Astro Megazord Blaster to the Megaship for additional armament; this configuration was never used in the show.
