Space.17: Lighting the Dome of Darkness! (闇のドームを照らしタイヨウ！ Yami no Dōmu wo Terashitayō) is the seventeenth episode of Uchu Sentai Kyuranger. It features the debut of Lucky's new power up modes: Taiyou Shishi Red and Shishi Red Moon and the debut of 03*04*10 RyuTeiOh. It also features the return of Kotaro Sakuma, albeit in the communication.
With Scorpio's kick, Champ has been destroyed. Champ's body was sent to the Rebellion HQ to be repaired, while Stinger watches over him. The Orion is filled with dark shadows. The Kyuranger's feel they need to find the Ryokotsu Kyutama as soon as possible in order to compensate for Champ's condition. But the Rashinban Kyutama has not completed its charge yet. Garu is angry before Champ's situation and gets angry with Balance when he mentions his attitude won't help change anything. At this rate, they can only destroy as many Moraimarz on Earth as they can. They eventually find themselves inside a very dark dome, of which the inside reflects the Kyuranger's emotions...

- Balance pummeling Shaidos while under the influence of the Hikari Kyutama is a small joke to the ability of the Stands of anime/manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Yuki Ono, who voices Balance, is also known to have voiced Josuke Higashikata in Diamond is Unbreakable.
- It may also be a slight reference to the "Ripple" power used during Pt. 1 and 2 of JoJo, where the hero uses the power of the sun within their fists.
- Shaidos' power likewise may be in reference to the JoJo Pt. 5 stand "Black Sabbath", with the ability to hide and attack from shadows; with it's main defeat by way of Giorno Giovanna and his stand, Gold Experience. (thus TenbinGold's importance)
