Space.40: Opening Event! Deathball of Hell (開幕!地獄のデースボール Kaimaku! Jigoku no Dēsubōru) is the fortieth episode of Uchu Sentai Kyuranger. It features the debut of the Cassiopeia and Ya Kyutamas.


The Kyurangers have successfully acquired 3 of the 4 necessary items required to break through the barrier protecting planet Southern Cross, Jark Matter’s homeworld. As they headed to the Cassiopeia System to reclaim the last item, the Kyurangers receive a declaration of war from the Karo of the system! “From now on, I will challenge you all to the trials of Jark Matter’s baseball game, Death-Ball!” The Kyurangers are extremely confused, but they have no other choice. The Kyurangers form a league of their own to deal with the baseball threat! However, Spada seems to be following behind Lucky, as he does not follow the rules told to him by Shou Ronpo and Raptor regarding baseball… Now, the fight for the universe set in this game is about to begin!
