Aquabase power core
- Aquabase energy generator
Vypra planned to leave the Aquabase in the dark by destroying Mariner Bay's two power stations.
When Joel, victim of Clark's prank, tried testing a
faulty wire hookup to the experimental blue Mega Battle torso armor, the entire Aquabase momentarily blacked out, only a few
essential panels remaining on in Ops before
the generators kicked back on.
At a concrete area with a smallish door similar
to a doorway that might be found in a submarine, a hypnotized Captain Mitchell unlocked the door with a
sequence of buttons and entered an engine room with valves and pipes
rather than complicated electronics.
Near a control console were four gray metal
cylinders; the top section of each contained four red glowing sections
within a black containment area, and within the gap between the top and
bottom sections flowed bluish-purple wavy energy in a column shape.
suffered no noticeable harm from placing his bare hands within the flux
to set Jinxer's medallion within the leftmost
column's energy flow.
At the controls, Mitchell made the right three columns
shut down their energy, and the energy in the first column charged the
medallion; at this point, all of the Aquabase's external lighting shut off, though
an emergency generator would restore power to the four towers, leaving
the domes dark.
A bright red beam shot out from the Aquabase's central dome and, in Mariner Bay, flowed into Olympius's Star
In Ops, only the
controls and monitors remained online.
With the power disabled, the Aquabase's atmospheric systems were going
down, and the base would eventually run out of air.
Fairweather told the teens she'd
overridden the power to the Megazords, but
Mitchell had control of the rest of
the base; the Rangers were furthermore able
to morph unimpaired.
To stop Mitchell, Miss Fairweather had security meet her in
Fairweather led a security team with flashlights down a sigiled corridor with pipes along the walls.
At the door marked "No Admittance" and
"Authorized Personnel Only," Miss
Fairweather got no response from using the door intercom and then
had the guards use blue laser torches to cut the door open, which they
did after several minutes of cutting.
When the medallion was smashed with an emergency
axe from the wall, the red beam stopped, restoring power to the Aquabase, and all four energy columns would
soon be shown to be back on.
A tech in the engine room apparently found
everything to be normal before he was abducted by Arachnor, but none of the energy
columns could be seen or heard to be operational at the time.
