602-FON2

  • As the five Rangers entered the Megaship's bridge after their first battle together, Alpha was holding the black box he'd salvaged from the Power Chamber; the box now had wires hooked up to it, and Alpha appeared to push some buttons on the top of the box, saying, "I think I've finally gotten it!"
  • Soon afterward, as the Megaship was under fire from Astronema's sphinx ship, Alpha broke the code for the Astro Megazord; he explained to the Rangers, "This box contains the code that links the shuttle with the Megaship, creating the Astro Megazord. It's all part of Zordon's master plan!"
  • The Rangers then slid forward in seats into the Megazord cockpit located in the front of the shuttle, and the controls flipped down; see "Astro Megashuttle" for further cockpit entries.
  • The Megaship's shuttle bay doors opened and released the Megashuttle; as the shuttle came back around, the Megaship began unfolding, with the ship's sides unfolding into the Megazord's legs and the portions underneath the ship forming its arms.
  • Approaching, the Megashuttle transformed into the Megazord's head and docked onto the Megazord as the Megazord completed its transformation.
  • As soon as the Astro Megazord had been successfully formed, Andros peered out from the cockpit and remarked, "It worked!"; having watched from the Dark Fortress, Astronema remarked with sarcasm, "That was impressive."
  • The Megazord cockpit, in the front of the shuttle, was in the Megazord's forehead.
  • The text on the Astro Megazord's diagrams in the cockpit was "Galaxy Mega"; the reader will note the similarity to the name of the Galaxy Rangers' Galaxy Megazord.
  • The Astro Megazord was the first known Megazord not to consist of multiple component Zords; in fact, neither of its components, the Astro Megashuttle and the Astro Megaship, was ever called a Zord.
  • The Megazord had a gold rectangle emblem on its belt.
  • Moments later, the Megazord was holding the Astro Megazord Saber, and, using the shuttle's thrusters in its back, the Megazord flew by Astronema's sphinx ship and delivered a slash which caused the ship to explode.

    603-SOSh

  • To fly down to Earth, the Megazord held out the Astro Megazord Shield as a heat barrier.
  • When giant Ecliptor created six mirages of himself to confuse the Rangers during their Megazord battle, Carlos told Ashley to use her Lightstar helmet mode, and once her helmet symbol (a digital camera) had lit up, the Megazord's eyes had flashing yellow squares, and a search screen flashed "Target Lock," locking on to the real Ecliptor; a similar search would be done for Destructipede by Cassie in the Astro Delta Megazord in 612-GrEv, without the helmet activation.

    606-SatS

  • When the Rangers were chained up below on the planet Kalderon and confronted by the giant Clawhammer monster, Alpha thought to take the Megaship down to the planet, thinking they couldn't help from up there, and he then called for the Astro Megazord transformation.
  • In a blue sky background, the Megaship opened and transformed its legs with the shuttle still attached; the shuttle then flew out and through a space background, but it was back in the blue sky when it combined with the Megazord.
  • When giant Clawhammer threw a spinning energy blade at the Megazord, Alpha, piloting the Megazord from the front left seat on the bridge, called out, "Defenses online!" and the Megazord caught the energy blade around its saber and hurled it back at the monster.
  • After grabbing the Astro Megazord Saber in its claw, giant Clawhammer slashed a gash into the Megazord's chest, left shoulder, and left hip, then knocked it off a cliff so that it almost fell into a lava pit.
  • After punching Clawhammer away from the pit and climbing up once the Rangers took control, the Megazord kicked Clawhammer in the groin four times in a row, headbutted him twice, then swung it around by its antennae until they snapped off; the Megazord then threw the monster into the lava pit, where it exploded.

    607-ARAT

  • The Megazord was now repaired.
  • In blue sky, the Megaship transformed with the shuttle still attached, then completed its transformation as the head docked on.

    608-WPCS

  • The Megazord again formed in blue sky, with the Rangers definitely in the shuttle at the time; the same would occur in 609-CrIn, 614-BaSt, 623-Date, and 624-ZhnD.

    611-DDsc

  • The four Rangers were able to pilot the Megazord while Andros was away (though the Megazord did poorly against the Crocovile monsters); Carlos sat in Andros's center seat until Andros had returned.

    612-GrEv

  • The Megazord transformed in space, but the head attached in the blue sky background.
  • When the evil Delta Megazord stopped firing, pleasing the Rangers, but then suddenly aimed to fire again, T.J. told Cassie to activate the shields, but she exclaimed that they were stuck, and the Astro Megazord was blasted repeatedly in the chest.
  • Andros called Alpha to tell him to calculate a frequency to attempt reverse polarization (as had removed the evil spell from the Ninja Turtles in 604-ShSh); although the frequency was unknown, Andros asked for the closest estimate, and Alpha gave 03 at .28.
  • On the keyboard in front of him in the Astro Megazord, Andros typed in a sequence which flipped the keyboard over into a control port for the Battlizer; saying this could be their only chance, Andros detached the Battlizer device from its wrist holder and plugged it into the port on his controls, and the Astro Megazord then began generating a steady orange beam of energy waves from the tiny circle in its chest, competing with the green beam from the Dark Fortress above.
  • Andros told the others not to stop firing until he gave the word, and then, despite the others' insistence that they had to back off as the temperature redlined, Andros continued, thinking they were wearing the Delta Megazord down.
  • The Evilyzer finally shorted out, but Andros then declared that they were out of energy, and Astronema, listening from the Dark Fortress, concluded that she'd beaten them.
  • As the Astro Megaship approached in space, the Delta Megaship split up into component parts with purple light, and the Astro Megaship opened up with blue light to form the Astro Megazord again in preparation for the Astro Delta Megazord formation.

    613-Grma

  • Once the Astro Megazord had been assembled to fight giant Termitus, Ashley had then switched seats with Andros to pilot the Megazord from the center seat.

    614-BaSt

  • After the Rangers had landed in the Astro Megazord to fight the giant Barillian Bug monster, the Megazord turned to look at the monster, then calmly beckoned him in; as the monster attacked, the Megazord dodged every one of his swings, with Andros deftly maneuvering the Megazord with his inner joysticks.
  • Upon summoning the saber, the Megazord glided forward on the ground, and in front of Ranger-colored lines of light, the Megazord sliced through the monster with a gold streak following the saber; the monster turned into flaming red energy which flew into the sky and exploded.

    615-TJId

  • Inside the lid of T.J.'s Astro Morpher (and presumably the others as well) was a silver instruction panel listing the Morpher codes: beside 335 was a Space Ranger helmet, 541 was the Astro Megazord's head, and so on.

    616-FDrk

  • After calling for the Astro Megazord, the Rangers were shown rushing into the shuttle's cockpit from its rear doors; at this point, the shuttle was still within the Megaship, which transformed after Andros had called for the Astro Delta Megazord.

    617-RMVy

  • After the Astro Delta Megazord had separated and the Delta Mega had flown off, a monitor seemingly on the Astro Megaship's bridge showed schematics of the Astro Megazord with the flashing text "Sealed On," and Alpha, near the "Communications" console, said separation was complete.
  • As giant Darkonda ravaged the Astro Megazord, piloted by Alpha from the bridge, with his attacks, he eventually impaled the left side of its stomach with his bone weapon.
  • In the Megaship's engine room immediately afterward, two cables were loose, and mist illuminated orange from the engine was filling the area; DECA announced a system failure alert as the engine died.
  • As the ravaged Astro Megazord crackled with blue electricity minutes later, DECA spoke in a sluggish voice to warn of the energy levels nearly depleted; her warning kept repeating, slowly dying out.
  • The monitor above the "Power Requirements" box on the "Computer Systems" console on the bridge showed below an "Energy Levels" title two dropping energy bars, with large red numbers on the right counting down from 15%.
  • Once the energy levels hit 0%, the Megazord sparked and collapsed; the lights on the bridge remained on.

    620-SvSv

  • Later, after Zhane had awoken and Lunatick had grown, the Megaship was able to fly into space and transform into the Megazord.
  • Seeing an external view of the Astro Megazord flying to Kadix on the bridge viewscreen, Zhane, having been in a cryogenic sleep for two years, remarked, "Wow, I didn't know we could do this!"

    626-SOLk

  • The Rangers fought giant Batarax in the Astro Megazord; when Cassie planned to use the sonic neutralizer to jam the monster's radar, Batarax emitted a steady sonic blast from the speakers in his ears.
  • Cassie noted as her helmet symbol lit that he'd changed frequencies and she couldn't correct it; the Megazord sparked repeatedly, paralyzed by the noise as its power was being drained, and Cassie said the sonic scanner was offline.
  • As the Megazord nearly collapsed, the scanner suddenly locked, and the monster's signal was neutralized; Batarax looked down toward the ground and planned to change frequencies, and the Megazord's display showed red sonic beams coming from giant Batarax and blue sonic beams hitting him from a device atop a van, quite probably Professor Phenomenus's RV.
  • The Megazord now had full power and all systems were back online.

    636-EnWi

  • A short while after Psycho Yellow had infected the Mega Voyager and giant Psycho Black had shackled the Mega Winger and Delta Megazord, Psycho Red was pummeling Andros below when Alpha flew the Astro Megazord down to help.

    637-A&St

  • Giant Jakarak's beam turned the Astro Megazord Shield and the Megazord's left forearm to stone, but they would return to normal once the Delta Megazord had blasted off the monster's tentacle.

    702-QsQ2

  • The Megaship was aboard Terra Venture and had been converted into a museum; the Megashuttle was absent from its shuttle bay.

    731-PPnk

  • To help the Galaxy Rangers fight giant Psycho-monster Pink on planet Rashon after the Space Rangers' return, the four Space Rangers (lacking Cassie) flew the Megashuttle to combine with the Megaship and form the Astro Megazord, although it was uncertain when the shuttle had arrived, as it had never been shown inside the Megaship.
  • The Astro Megazord used its shield as a protective barrier as it flew down to Rashon through the radiating energy disturbance from the Savage Sword below.
  • Before the Megazord landed, a beam of five Ranger-colored lasers (though the colors of the Galaxy Rangers rather than Space Rangers') blasted giant Psycho-monster Pink from above.
  • During the fight, Andros was for some reason wearing the Battlizer, or at least its black wristband.

    603-SOSh

  • When giant Ecliptor created six mirages of himself to confuse the Rangers during their Megazord battle, Andros called for the Astro Megazord Saber once Ashley had locked on to the real Ecliptor with her Lightstar helmet mode, and the Megazord then struck the real Ecliptor with its saber in the form of a yellow energy whip.
  • To follow up this attack once the saber had returned to normal, the Megazord then leapt into the air and sliced through Ecliptor with its saber glowing with a yellow energy mosaic; Ecliptor then exploded into tiny bits.
  • In the center of the radial disc in the saber's hilt was a very tiny gold rectangle emblem.

    607-ARAT
