|This article is about a/an episode in Power Rangers Time Force.|
Ransik sends out a mutant named Notacon, who doesn't want to be evil. Frax's device forces him to do bad, but Trip discovers his true nature and sets out to protect him from not only the fugitives but from the Silver Guardian Eric!
Frax releases Notacon, only to find he's a sweet and gentle mutant, who was arrested for a minor crime. Frax attaches a device to Notacon to control him, but Notacon escapes. In the city, people are afraid of the mutant. Trip finds him and learns he was in the vault for stealing vegetables. He only stole because he was hungry; no one would feed him because of his appearance. His only desire is to be frozen again. Eric shows up wanting to kill the mutant and is willing to do almost anything to accomplish his goal. However Trip convinces Eric that not all mutants are the menace and Eric refuses to kill Notacon. However, Frax takes control of Notacon's body and forces him to attack the Rangers. Notacon tries to resist but Frax makes him grow. Ultimately the Shadow Force Megazord battles a controlled Notacon while Trip tries to use the Electro Booster to destroy Frax's control device. Notacon is too strong for the Shadow Force Megazord, but Q-Rex joins the battle. However, instead of trying to destroy Notacon as is initially believed, Eric has Q-Rex hold him down, allowing Trip to destroy the control device. With that gone, the other Rangers in the Shadow Force Megazord refreeze him. However Trip promises to help Notacon in the future.

- For an unknown reason, Eric does not wear his red beret in this episode.
- Lila can be seen in place of Nadira in some shots.
- Ransik is shown to be quite a hypocrite; he initially wanted to kill Notacon for being useless, then orders Frax to force Notacon to fight the Rangers when they attempted to help him. (Overall a pointless effort as the Rangers would end up freezing Notacon again, regardless).
- Some facts about Eric are revealed:
