Hacktrack was a robotic satellite dish-themed Galaxy Warrior. He serves as the main villain of the episode "Hack Attack".

History

Hacktrack is sent to steal Sarah's technology and encounters all five Ninja Steel Rangers whilst they picnic in a forest with an army of Kudabots. While the other Rangers battle the Kudabots, the Pink Ranger personally battles Hacktrack, but gets overpowered. She then starts to phase out and disappears into a Holo-Projector, revealing it is really a holographic clone of Sarah. The monster snatches the device and teleports away. Hacktrack then returns to a city and uses an Antennae Dish club to absorb the Holo-Projector, and uses it to make eight giant holo-clones of Galvanax, which begin attacking the city.

Hacktrack later returns and attacks the Rangers before he steals the Pink Ranger's Techno-Gadget that can "make the clones stronger." However, this turns out to be a trick as the Techno-Gadget is actually a computer virus which short-circuits Hacktrack, causing all eight of the giant Galvanax clones to shut down. Hacktrack reboots himself to recover from the virus. He fires energy rings, but they get deflected by the Blue Ranger's Element Star Ninja Water Attack, and the water itself short-circuits Hacktrack again, allowing the Yellow and White Rangers to use the Ninja Earth Attack on him. He is then destroyed by the Five Ranger Ninja Strike, Steel Slash Final Attack. He is Gigantified by Cosmo and the Rangers summon the Ninja Steel Megazord to battle him. Hacktrack flies, prompting the Rangers to form the Ninja Steel Megazord Dragon Formation but the Megazord can't reach into space where Hacktrack travels so Mick creates and gives the Rangers a Ninja Power Star that allows them to summon the new Astro Zord. They combine with it to form the Astro Ninja Steel Megazord and Hacktrack on the Moon and destroy him with the Astro Ninja Steel Megazord's Cosmic Blast Final Attack. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Hack Attack

Personality

Hacktrack was quite a childish and selfish monster, wanting technology for himself. Due to this, he filled himself with a virus that was created by the Pink Ranger that was his undoing but he was very loyal to Galvanax.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Teleportation: Hacktrack could teleport to any location at will.
  • Reboot: Should Hacktrack get a virus, he could reboot himself to heal. As such, as long as he was still intact and hadn't blown up, he was essentially undefeatable.
  • Flight: Hacktrack could fly at high speed thanks to the jet thrusters under his feet.
    • Interstellar Travel: Hacktrack could travel into space while flying.
  • Space Survivability: Hacktrack could survive in outer space as shown in his battle with the Astro Ninja Steel Megazord.

Abilities

  • Extraordinary Jumper: Hacktrack could jump at incredible heights.

Weaknesses

  • Oblivious Nature-Hacktrack was extremely obsessed with technology and would absorb any technology without thinking of potential sideeffects.
  • Viruses-Hacktrack would be temporarily crippled by internalized viruses which he could reboot from but would prevent him from creating giant clones and make ones already existing vanish.

Arsenal

  • Antenna Dish Club: Hacktrack wielded an antenna dish-like club for combat.
    • Technology Absorption: Hacktrack could absorb any type of technology into his satellite.
      • Clone Creation: By absorbing the Pink Ranger's cloning device, Hacktrack could fire light and dark blue-purple colored energy lasers from his club that could create giant clones.
    • Virus Absorption: Hacktrack could absorb viruses into his club as well.
    • Energy Rings: Hacktrack could fire blue energy rings from his antenna dish club.
    • Lightning Beam: Hacktrack could fire a light purple lightning beam from his club.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Design

  • Hacktrack's design incorporated a satellite dish and a robot.

Etymology

  • His name was a portmanteau of the words Hack and Track to fit his design.

Notes

  • Hacktrack was the first monster to debut outside of the Warrior Dome seeing as he debuted when he ambushed the Rangers in the park.
  • The footage of Hacktrack used in "Grave Robber" was previously deleted footage from "Hack Attack" which was originally a fake-out death in his original Japanese episode.
  • The shot of Hacktrack growing was exclusively American made because, in Ninninger, he grew and disappeared off-screen so the viewer did not get a close-up of his face.
    • This was presumably cut for time because,  in Ninninger, Raizo Gabi confronted Brody's counterpart which lasted too long for the American episode to include.
  • Hacktrack lacked his Sentai counterpart's fake smiley face because this face was only used around children and the unmorphed Ninningers.
