Mike goes to Captain Mutiny's slave camp wanting to free the slaves. So he allows himself to be captured by Barbarax and taken to the slave camp. Meanwhile, Kai reads the Keonta Spell backwards and an inter-dimensional portal opens, providing an escape from the Lost Galaxy. Mike befriends a slave named Haley and together they free the slaves, including her grandfather and make it to the Astro Megaship. But, Mike and Haley are stopped by Captain Mutiny, Barbarax and Deviot blocking their way to escape. So Mike chooses to stay behind and fight off Mutiny just so the Astro Megaship could escape to the portal. He fights off Mutiny only to be defeated himself. Just when Mike feels that all hope is lost, he receives contact with the original Magna Defender's spirit telling him to never give up because he has one final task to do. As the portal begins to close, Mike shows up in the Defender Torozord and manages to reopen it, however the Zord is destroyed in the process. Terra Venture makes it through the portal pursued by Captain Mutiny who pilots his castle through intent on conquering the new galaxy he's found only for Trakeena to show up who quickly destroys the castle killing Mutiny and his crew. Mike survives, however he loses his powers in the process. Later, the spirit of the Magna Defender appears to Mike thanking him for continuing his legacy with honor.

- Terra Venture is incorrectly shown to have all its engines working.
- When Mike states that "this is crazy, we've got to find a way to stop him," his mouth appears to continue moving even after he's finished speaking.
- Mike volunteers to be captured as the villains wouldn't know who he was; however, he was personally responsible for foiling Hexuba's nightmare spell while unmorphed.
- It may be that the villains still had not actually made the connection that Mike was the Magna Defender, simply assuming that he was a civilian.
- Despite it having being under heavy guard previously, Leo and Kai were shown to have possession of the Galaxy Book with no explanation.
- It's possible that they were allowed access in hopes of finding a way out of the Lost Galaxy given the dire situation Terra Venture was in.
- Defender Torozord was grossly oversized in this episode, holding open the portal which was as big as Terra Venture despite having always been shown to battle inside the colony's far smaller domes.
- Leo recovers the unmorphed Mike floating in outer space. Mike should have died from exposure to the vacuum of space and lack of oxygen.
- This is, however, consistent with how space has always been portrayed in Power Rangers, with a breathable, Earth-like atmosphere even on the moon.
- This episode marks the first time in Power Rangers that a sentient zord is destroyed.
- This episode marks the return of Trakeena, Villamax, and Kegler.
- This episode marks the final appearance of the Galaxy Book and the end of the Lost Galaxy arc.
- There isn't much Sentai footage.
- Mike loses the Magna Defender powers, but he later regains them prior to Legendary Battle.
