|This article is about a/an episode in Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger.|
The Birth (誕生 Tanjō) is the first episode of Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger, the first of an opening two-parter.
A Japanese space shuttle is launched to explore the planet called Nemesis that has gotten close enough to the Earth to allow for travel. On Nemesis, the adults of the shuttle crew accidentally break the seal on the prison that is holding the Bandora Gang, releasing the evil sorceress Bandora and her henchmen. Bandora swiftly disposes of the adult crew and heads toward the Earth. With her massive magic power and her giant monster Dora Titan, Bandora starts to wreak havoc on Earth. Barza, disguised as an apartment super, tries to confront Bandora but he's apparently powerless in front of the powerful sorceress. When Bandora challenges him with hostages - the shrunken space shuttle with two children left inside - Barza decides to bring the five warriors back from suspended animation. He has secretly guarded them for 170 million years. Four of the warriors - Goushi, Dan, Boi, and Mei - rush into Bandora's headquarters, but are captured in a trap. The last warrior, Geki, rescues them and the five transform into the Zyurangers. They smash Bandora's clay soldiers and take hold of the shrunken space shuttle, but the shuttle is taken away by giant Dora Titan.
