[Recap of "Save Our Ship"]
The Ninja Turtles are still confused over their reluctant teleportation from the end of the previous episode onto the city streets. They get the answer when Astronema, Elgar & Quantrons teleport in! She reveals her role behind their mysterious transfer (Venus somehow recognizes her as the Princess Of Evil) and that she plans to use the five mutants to destroy the Power Rangers. The Turtles laugh at her, saying that the Rangers are just "pretend" and even if they WERE real, why would they fight them? She then picks up her wrath staff and blasts a beam into their eyes, filling them with a purple essence of evil!
On board the Astro Megaship, Andros introduces the Rangers to his Galaxy Glider. They'll each have their own, using the sleek designed boards to be less vulnerable to attack than in the big clunky Megaship. No time for training, DECA detects a monster named Electrotramp attacking Angel Grove's power supply. The Ranger teens hop through their assigned Jump tubes, setting off an automatic Morph, launching them on their Gliders down to Earth. Upon landing at the power plant, they begin to take on Electrotramp, but none of their special weapons do much good on the crafty villain. His electroballs start beating our heroes back, when suddenly a blast of five green beams strike one of the powerballs, saving the Rangers from an electric jolt! The smoke clears, the Ninja Turtles stand revealed and soon take on the monster themselves! Using their usual, slapsticky fighting attitude, they are able to turn one of the monster's Electroballs on himself by playing a goofy game of Ninja Baseball. Electrotramp reverts to useless static and the two teams greet each other. The Power Rangers are shocked the Turtles were in fact real (yet they know each of the Turtles names), likewise with the Rangers being nothing but a myth to the green gang. Andros stands offside, suspiciously watching the Ninja team, and when they mention hearing the Rangers have a spaceship and ask for a lift back to New York, he's even more cautious of them. Despite Red Ranger's pleas to his teammates over the coincidence of their arrival, the others figure the Turtle's reputation speaks for itself and have Alpha teleport all ten of them to the Astro Megaship. Andros doesn't trust them one iota, but heads back to space to keep a close eye on the mutant fivesome.
The Ranger teens give the Turtles a complete tour of the Megaship, answering questions about nearly everything. Ashley tells Donatello the Jump Tubes can lead to either the Gliders or the Mega Shuttle. Leonardo whips up a pizza on the Synthetron. Donatello presses Ash for some more info on DECA's navigational knowledge, while Andros spies on them via a viewing screen in the engine room. Cassie leads Raphael & Venus into said room, showing them the Mega Accelerator. Ralph asks how fast the ship can go, but DECA states Maximum Hyper Rush Velocity is classified. Alpha informs everyone the Megaship is over New York City, so it's time to head to the bridge and say goodbyes. Once alone, Andros questions Cassie as to why the Turtles are so interested into the details of the Megaship, but she chalks it up to curiosity. Meanwhile, in one of the Megadecks, someone breaks open the Main Computer Control Terminal panel and begins to do some rewiring. DECA is aware of this, like always, and warns Andros. He rushes to investigate, finding Donatello, Leonardo & Mikey as the sneaky culprits! He's too late to stop them, they've already modified DECA to speak Turtle-lingo and work against our heroes. Andros quickly beats the mutants off him and runs away. On the bridge, Ashley & Cassie witness the Megaship turning around and leaving orbit, with Ralph & Venus explaining the ship is now an official "green machine" and under their control. Astronema teleports aboard wearing her battle armor, along with a few Quantrons & her new right hand monster, Elgar! Ash & Cass fight through some of the metallic minions, but in the process of escaping the montage of evil, Alpha is captured! Andros continues eluding three of the Turtles, as nearby TJ & Carlos wind up bumping into a surprise group of Quantrons! Astronema is amazed at how clean the bridge is, but puts her admiring of Alpha's dusting skills off and informs DECA to take only her commands, and set a course for the Teonta Galaxy.
Astronema reports to Dark Specter on the viewing screen of the Megaship bridge with the great news of the Rangers' capture. He finds it poetic that they'll crush the Rangers with their own mighty Astro Megazord. Leonardo mentions one of the five is still missing, Astronema shuts him up before Specter can hear. She threatens to toss him and his friends into the nearest black hole unless they find Andros and soon. Meanwhile, down in the Engine room, the four captured Rangers are tied up and are being watched by Q-Trons. Andros is lurking behind the Mega Accelerator, using his telekinesis to move a pair of apparent pliers into wire cutting position as TJ watches the whole thing. Andy accidentally loses his train of thought, and the pliers fall to the floor making a clatter. One of the Quantrons questions them on what the noise was, Teej Nonchalantly handing him the cut wires and giving the robodrone a sharp kick! The Rangers then rush towards the jump tubes, passing the Turtles and making an escape to the Mega Shuttle (morphing upon sliding through the tubes). Since there can be no Megazord without that shuttle, Astronema has DECA (with the Turtles running the steering controls) set the Megaship to follow the Rangers. Andros maneuvers the shuttle through a nearby reversed polarized magnetic field, in hopes of jamming the Megaship sensors. Astronema learns too late what they're headed for, and the turtles can't veer the Ship away in time, so they end up going straight through the magnetic field! This not only slows the Megaship down, but counteracts the effects of Astronema's spell on the Ninjas! The restored good Turtles refuse to do anymore of her dirty work, but she will have the last laugh, commanding DECA to self destruct the Megaship before teleporting away to safety! The Turtles are excited about having the spaceship all their own, but scream in terror upon hearing the one minute countdown to destruction! The Mega Shuttle has landed on a nearby planet, and the Rangers are running for absolutely no reason at all, when Astronema and a bunch of Q-Trons teleport in front of them. She orders the attack, and while the Rangers put up a good fight, they're ultimately outnumbered. Back on the Astro Megaship, the Turtles head to the command terminal to rewire DECA and stop her from self destructing the ship. Donatello gets some mystical calming help from Venus, helping him figure out it's the green wire he needs to reconnect, restoring DECA to normal in time to prevent an Astro MegaBoom. Astronema is enjoying the ringside seat to her robodrones giving the Rangers quite a beating, even joining in by tossing a Wrath-arang at Red Ranger, taking him down. Suddenly, the Turtles stand above him holding his Spiral Saber, but instead of using it on him, Leonardo hands it to Andros, offering to lend a hand in the battle. Red Ranger feels they're being honest about being good this time, and soon they join the Power Rangers in helping to fight off the evil metal warriors! The Turtles and Rangers pair into groups, Cassie & Mikey, Donny & TJ, Ashley & Ralph, Venus & Carlos, and finally Andros & Leonardo! These combos end up being too much for the Quantrons, as they stack the robodrones into a defeated pile in front of Astronema. She teleports out with her beaten cronies, but vows revenge on everyone there. The two teams shake hands, make friends and head to the Mega Shuttle arm in arm!
The Ninja Turtles say good-bye to the Power Rangers, and apologies are exchanged. Invitations are extended both ways, if the Turtles are ever in space, drop by the Megaship. Rangers in New York, drop by the sewers! DECA doesn't hold a grudge against Donatello for reprogramming her, but still zaps him in the bottom half of his shell. Before they leave, the Turtles ask one favor and get it: to take a ride on the Galaxy Gliders! Good thing for them the Gliders seem to have a built in environmental shield, or else it'd be vacuum splat turtle for dinner tonight!
