"What's it gonna be?"
―Trakeena's final words before her “death”.[src]

Trakeena is the primary antagonist of Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, where she is portrayed by Amy Miller. When she reappears in Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue, she is portrayed by Jennifer Burns due to Amy Miller walking off due to disagreements.

Character History

Lost Galaxy

Trakeena was born the daughter of the galactic ruler and warlord Scorpius and an unknown female, though her mother may have been a humanoid (alien with the appearance of a human), as she speaks highly of her human beauty in spite of her insectoid features. Scorpius considered Trakeena to be the evil princess of his alien army and spared no expense to spoil and protect her, but she did not like being treated as a child as she became older. During her teenage years, she although did enjoy being spoiled by her father she wanted to become a warrior to prepare herself as ruler of her father’s army when she would have to succeed him and would frequently sneak away with her father's generals in efforts to prove herself as a warrior despite his disapproval. At some point, Trakeena comes to learn of the demise of United Alliance of Evil caused by Z-Wave, one of the villains who were being purified by Zordon's sacrifice at the hands of Andros were Rita Repulsa, Lord Zedd, Divatox and the now former Astronema, Karone, with Trakeena's family were luckily survive for not getting involved with the alliance's war against Power Rangers on certain planets aside Earth and Aquitar.

In one such case, the general Treacheron had allowed Trakeena to come with him, but when confronted by Scorpius, he claimed that Trakeena had followed him to battle just to save his own neck. Upset at being sold out, and with help from Impostra, Trakeena convinced Scorpius that Treacheron was a traitor and had him locked up. Their feud continued as Treacheron tricked Trakeena into searching for a silver goblet just so he could ambush her once he was free from his cell. She was saved only thanks to the intervention of the Galaxy Rangers.

Eventually, Trakeena learned that Scorpius wished for her to enter the cocoon and become an insect with great powers like him. Not wanting to lose her mortal beauty the transformation would cause, Trakeena fled to the planet Onyx when he tried to force her. As she wandered into the tavern and found that her prestige did her no good in facing the ruthless patrons, Trakeena met Villamax and his aide Kegler. Villamax offered to train her to be a great warrior and taught her swordplay and martial arts. In time, Trakeena became a truly incredible fighter, and later introduced her newfound strength to the tavern when they tried to give her trouble again.

Trakeena's personal victory became dashed when word reached her that Scorpius was dying, for he had been manipulated by his new general Deviot to attack the Galaxy Rangers and had been gravely wounded in the battle. She returned to the Scorpion Stinger to be with her father in his last moments and to apologize for running away. As Scorpius died, he willed that everything he had was now in Trakeena's hands, and his remaining power was sealed in an ornate staff for her own use. As to the cocoon, Trakeena put it in storage as she felt she didn't need it, but also wanted to keep it around just in case.

Now with all of her father's resources at her command, Trakeena began focusing her vengeance on Terra Venture and the Galaxy Rangers. Deviot told her that Scorpius was destroyed by Leo Corbett, the Red Galaxy Ranger. She would later capture and face off against him in a one-on-one sword duel, but would lose the chance to exact her vengeance when they were both attacked by Deviot's assassins Teksa and Kubak. Trakeena killed Teksa with ease and left Kubak to the Rangers, promising to destroy them for the death of her father. She would continue to attack Terra Venture multiple times, and at one point had the Psycho Rangers restored only for them to be destroyed by the combined might of the Galaxy and Space Rangers. After Kendrix's sacrifice on destroying the Sword of Darkness used by Psycho Pink, Trakeena was able to expose Karone's identity immediately due to her full knowledge of the former Astronema's involvement on Zordon Wave, but unable to steal the Pink Quasar Saber when Kendrix's spirit saved Karone and chose her as the second Pink Ranger.

Trakenna Transforms to Tracy

When Terra Venture was pulled into the Lost Galaxy by Deviot, Trakeena was unwilling to follow, fearful of being unable to escape. When the colony emerged some time later, Trakeena destroyed the ship of Captain Mutiny, who was pursuing it as a show of her power over the galaxy.

Trakeena after fusing with Deviot

When Deviot returned to Trakeena (having escaped the destruction of the castle) and claimed to have been forced into slavery by Captain Mutiny, she refused to believe him as she now knew he was plotting against her. Fleeing for his life, Deviot attempted to enter the cocoon but didn't make it before Villamax caught up. In desperation, he grabbed Trakeena and dragged her into the cocoon with him, causing them to fuse into a single being. Trakeena would emerge alone, her body now bearing some of Deviot's armor, but the fusion also made her as ruthless and evil as he had been.

Trakeena launched a full-scale assault on Terra Venture by arming her Stingwingers with suicide bombs to destroy the colony. Though she succeeded in bringing Terra Venture down and destroyed the Stratoforce and Centaurus Megazords at the cost of her entire army, this wasn't enough as she wanted the entire population of Terra Venture to suffer. This didn't sit well with Villamax, who had simply sworn to help her destroy the Power Rangers, and things came to a head when she was ready to destroy the escape shuttles carrying Terra Venture's population. When Villamax refused to destroy the shuttles and laid down his sword, Trakeena mercilessly killed him.

However, this had bought enough time for the Astro Megaship to catch up and protect the shuttles. Trakeena used the Scorpion Stinger's pincers to attack the Astro Megaship, forcing the Rangers to self-destruct it. As a result, the Scorpion Stinger was sent crashing down to the nearby moon where it was destroyed, and Trakeena was badly injured. With her father's words echoing through her mind, she entered the cocoon and mutated into a green, humanoid muscular insect with immense powers. She powered up Terra Venture's remains and attempted to drop the wreckage on the colonized planet, and at the same time was able to fight off all five Galaxy Rangers. In the end, Trakeena was seemingly destroyed by Leo's Battlizer when he fired his weapon at point-blank range. 

Lightspeed Rescue

In Lightspeed Rescue's Trakeena's Revenge, it was revealed that she had survived and managed to return to her human form. However, the kamikaze attack from the Battilzer had left Trakeena horribly scarred; donning a mask, she vowed to make the Galaxy Rangers pay for taking her mortal beauty. Deciding to destroy their homeworld as payback, Trakeena headed to Earth.

Keeping herself in secret, she employed the double agent demon Triskull to capture humans from Mariner Bay, intending to use their life energy to restore her back into her insectoid form so she could regain her great powers. Triskull claimed to the demons of Skull Cavern that he would give the energy to them so they could restore the body of their leader, Queen Bansheera, to its proper form. Trakeena wasn't concerned by the demons, knowing that at full power she could easily destroy Olympius and Queen Bansheera.

Things proceeded well, with Trakeena hiding in a secret thirteenth floor of an office building, while Triskull captured humans for her purpose. Unfortunately, her actions soon caught the attention of Lightspeed Rescue, who teamed up with the Galaxy Rangers to foil her. Making matters worse, Olympius, aware of Triskull's betrayal, decided to destroy both him and Trakeena along with the Rangers. To do so, he created a dagger covered with poison stronger than that of ten taipans. As Olympius and his forces battled the Lightspeed Rangers and Galaxy Rangers, he thought that it would be more efficient to let Trakeena destroy them than himself.

Trakeena's third and final form

Taking advantage of having both sides fighting, Trakeena strapped herself into the machine and began siphoning the life energy to return to her insectoid form. However, Olympius decided to "let Trakeena have her wish" to mutate, tossing the dagger into the room. It tainted the life energy, causing Trakeena to lose control of the mutation process; becoming energy, she flew into the city and became a giant purple monstrosity. Olympius left satisfied, knowing that one of his enemies would be destroyed, if not both. The Galaxy and Lightspeed Rangers teamed up to battle her. Despite the help of the Galactabeasts, the Galaxy and Lightspeed Rangers were unable to stop her until the Omega Megazord became infused with the Lights of Orion. Trakeena was then destroyed forever.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Trakeena's Revenge

Power Rangers: Super Legends

Trakeena in her battle armor in Power Rangers: Super Legends

Trakeena appeared in Power Rangers: Super Legends as one of the many antagonists. She was in her green battle armor in the Playstation 2 and PC versions while in the Nintendo DS version she was in her original form, and sent her henchmen to fight against the Rangers. She attempted to destroy Terra Venture. After being defeated by Leo for the first time, she decided to destroy Terra Venture's power core. Leo managed to stop her again, but Trakeena then grew bigger and challenged the Galaxy Megazord, but was defeated.

Power Rangers Legends

Trakeena appeared in Power Rangers Legends as one of the three main antagonists (alongside Lord Zedd and Master Xandred). She was in her original form, but wielded her powerful staff which she used to attack the Rangers. She sent her Stingwingers and even Villamax to fight the Rangers, but after they were all defeated she attacked them herself. However, Trakeena was defeated.   

Power Rangers Legacy Wars

Trakeena is among the villains who feature in Power Rangers Legacy Wars. According to her in-game profile, her mother is an unknown human female, though the canonicity of the game's information is not known.

Personality

When we are first introduced to Trakeena in the series, she appears to be a young woman bent on trying to prove herself to her father and rule by his side. She would tag along with Scorpius' generals and bully them just because she could. Trakeena is the Princess of Scorpius' army and as such, she is pampered and spoiled by her father, he doesn’t discipline her, and never raises his voice or punishes her. She throws around her father's name in order to threaten Scorpius' generals (though this doesn't work as well on Onyx). She is also cunning and very manipulative. She was easily able to bend Furio to her will and convince her father that Treacheron, who is a very loyal general to Scorpius, is a traitor.

Trakeena was incredibly vain and proud. On one occasion, she had the monster Crumummy steal the beauty from all the female inhabitants of Terra Venture, because she hated the thought that they might be those more beautiful than herself. When faced with the possibility of losing her beauty to become as powerful as her father, Trakeena ran away.

Trakeena is power hungry, like her father. After becoming queen, she sits upon her throne trying to find new ways to destroy the Rangers in order to conquer and rule the universe. She quickly destroyed Captain Mutiny after he arrived in her galaxy to preserve her position as ruler of the universe.

Trakeena was later forcefully fused with Deviot inside the cocoon and Deviot's wicked nature completely consumed her. Trakeena was the dominant personality, but Deviot's wicked nature warped her mind and she lost all restraints. She became focused purely on wreaking havoc and destruction. Her thirst for destruction took her evil to a whole new level.

After being poisoned by Olympius' dagger, Trakeena became completely feral; speaking exclusively in mindless feral roars and feminine (albeit distorted) yells with her only goal being destroying everything in sight.

Appearances: LG Episode 6


Trakeena Insect Form

Powers and Abilities

  • Power-Trakeena in this form was easily one of the most unstoppable enemies in Power Rangers history, easily defeating all five Rangers in battle and nearly killing everyone in Terra Venture. However, Ransik is still more powerful than her since she was still outdone by Leo's Batillizer whereas Wesley Collins' Red Fire Warrior form was no match for him.
  • Staff Summoning-Trakeena was able to summon her newer staff into her hand in a flash of green lightning.
  • Super Jumps-Trakeena was able to jump seven feet in the air with a single leap to launch her opening attack on Leo during her apparent final battle.
    • Jump Glides-Trakeena could also launch herself forward into a glide to try and get ahead of her enemies.

  • Whip Creation-Trakeena could bring her hands together and then pull them apart to generate a small green whip which she used to wrap up Leo and throw him into a wall.

Abilities

  • Strength-Trakeena was able to take down and badly hurt Leo just by jumping up and multi-kicking him into some debris and restrain him one-armed.
    • Energy Reflection-Trakeena was strong enough to easily catch and throw back the Quasar Launcher finisher with her bare hands.
  • Durability-Trakeena was more durable in this form, being able to shrug off multiple blasts from the Astro Cycles and the Red Capsular Cycle’s Fireball Mode. Even a point-blank suicide blast from Leo's Battlizer just scarred her although it robbed her of this form.
    • Fall Immunity-Trakeena was able to plunge a good five or six stories onto solid concrete from the Terra Venture control room but was completely unfazed.
  • Hand to Hand Combat-Trakeena was completely unmatched in this form, being completely undefeeatable even when the Rangers fought her five on one. She was only beaten by a suicide attack from Leo.
  • Piloting-Trakeena was able to very accurately pilot Terra Venture to the landing spot for the inhabitants on Mirinoi.

Arsenal

  • Staff-Trakeena retained her newer staff but never used it in actual combat in this form.
    • Power Restoration-Trakeena's greatest display of power when she slammed the butt of her staff into the Terra Venture control room's floor to generate green lightning shockwaves which re-powered the entire space station enough for an attempted suicide attack.
  • Claws-Trakeena now had razor sharp claws on her fingers to hack and slash her enemies.
  • Table-At one point, Trakeena threw a cafe table at Kai which sent him to the ground.

Appearances: LG Episodes 45


Trakeena Final Form

Powers and Abilities

  • Power-Trakeena's demon form was one of the stronger enemies in Lightspeed Rescue, defeating three Megazords with ease and surviving all of their finishing attacks. It took the Omega Megazord empowered by the Lights of Orion to bring her down for good.
  • Fire Breath-Trakeena could breath massive waves of fire from her maw capable of devastating Mariner Bay and ripping buildings clean in two with a single blast.
  • Lightning Vision-Trakeena could fire devastating light green lightning beams from her eyes that took down the wrapped up Omega Megazord and Max Solarzord with one hit.
  • Arm Extension-Trakeena was able to stretch out her arm in attempt to grab the Omega Megazord, but it was cut off by the Galaxy Megazord's saber.
  • Fire Wave Generation-One of the most powerful attacks in Power Rangers history where Trakeena fired a massive orange fire wave from around herself after being hit by the Omega Megazord and Orion Galaxy Megazord finishers. This took down the Omega Megazord, tore the Orion Galaxy Megazord into its individual Galactabeasts and ejected the Galaxy Rangers all in one hit.

Abilities

Etymology

  • Her name was inspired by and is an altered spelling of the trichina worm, a species that caused the disease trichinosis.

Notes

  • Trakeena was the first humanoid villain shown to be killed in the series. All previous humanoid villains were purified of their evil or had their fate not revealed.
  • Amy Miller would later marry Reggie Rolle, the actor who played Damon Henderson the Green Galaxy Ranger.
  • Miller was originally supposed to reprise the role in Lightspeed Rescue. She initially accepted, but was dissatisfied over the fact that the Lost Galaxy cast were receiving less screen-time than a child guest-actress. When Saban attempted to cut hers and Danny Slavin's salary, Miller walked off prior to shooting first unit work. Jennifer Burns replaced her, and the change explains why Trakeena has an armor plate covering most of her face.
  • Amy Miller stated on her Instagram story in May 2020 that the reason Trakeena's green armor was rarely used was due to the fact it severely restricted her movement.
