- transforming spaceship given to Space Rangers by Phantom Ranger
After the Rangers
had joined Phantom Ranger on Hercuron too late to stop the villains from leaving with Zordon, Alpha told the
Rangers of a monster attack on Earth.
When Phantom told
the Rangers he would go after Zordon, Andros gave an
undecided "hmm," at which point Phantom pulled out a flat silver square
containing a mini-disc and told him that it controlled the Delta
Megaship, a mighty weapon which they would need.
Phantom told Andros that he had to retrieve it immediately, as
it was completely unprotected; Andros asked,
"But Phantom Ranger, what about--?" but
Phantom insisted, "Please, take it."
On his Galaxy
Glider, Andros flew through a dense region
of asteroids, beyond which he suddenly screeched to a stop upon seeing
the Delta Megaship, in its docking station, before him.
The Delta Megaship
was apparently in orbit around an Earth-like planet, but, on the other hand, the Earth would often also be shown erroneously in the
background of other various space scenes.
After flying into the Delta Megaship, inside a
room with unknown silver constructs, perhaps screens or holding pods, Andros called Phantom to tell him that he was inside, and
asking where to go; Phantom had him to
go into the control room on the lower level.
Andros was quite
unfamiliar with the interior of the Delta Megaship.
Initially thinking he'd hit a dead end in the
room with silver constructs, Andros then
spotted a passageway with pipes and other structures on the walls, at
the end of which was a sliding door marked "Control Room," with the word
"SECOMI" by door buttons.
Inside the doorway was the Delta Megaship's small
control room, with three control walls and no seats.
Phantom told Andros to open the security disk reader; initially
unsure where it was, Andros found the front
panel, where there were three buttons labeled with mostly Greek letters
on the console below: there was a left orange button, a center green
button which he pressed, and a right red button surrounded by a clear
In front of Andros, a
panel with a yellow triangle and an I.N.E.T. logo split open to reveal two
disc holders which rotated up.
Before going unconscious, Phantom told Andros to insert the disc into the primary slot;
not knowing which was the correct slot, Andros
randomly inserted the disc into the left slot, making an alarm sound,
and the room was lit by flashing red light.
A female voice announced, "Sequence initiated,"
and began counting down from ten, making Andros
panic; after the countdown, the voice then said, "Security disk scanning
sequence complete," relieving Andros to know
he'd chosen the correct slot.
As the security disc panel closed back up, the
voice announced, "Delta Megaship ready for Battlizer command."; preparing to summon the Battlizer, Andros
remarked, "Battlizer! All right!",
apparently familiar with the device.
Doing the Astro
Morphers' pre-morph pose in reverse,
first touching the Battlizer and then
holding out his hand, Andros called for the
Delta Megaship to go online, at which point the docking station flew away.
Just like the one on the Astro Megaship, there was a large red M on
the top of the Delta Megaship (or the Delta Megazord's back).
Andros, hoping the
others were okay, spoke into his Battlizer
to tell them he was on his way; perhaps interpreting this as a voice
command, the Delta Megaship then engaged its rear boosters, surprising
Andros a bit as he was rocked around.
As the Delta Megaship soon approached the Earth, the voice announced, "Initiating Megazord
transformation."; Andros's only reply was,
As the ship entered the atmosphere, it suddenly
erected a round red energy barrier in front of it as it partially
transformed in a flash while turning over.
After landing, the Delta Megazord's face panel
and top head cannons rotated down.
The Delta Megazord was the first known Megazord not to consist of any combining
On the chest of the Delta Megazord was a yellow
M, and on its legs were outlines of the standard rectangle emblem; more gold rectangles were on its back.
On the Delta Megazord's forehead was a gold
triangle, and on the back of its head (or the forehead of the Astro Delta Megazord) was a strip of
Ranger-colored squares, just like
those found on the Space Rangers' chests.
The numerous triangle icons on the Delta Mega, as
well as the Delta Mega's name itself, were references to the Delta
Megaship's triangular shape, resembling the Greek letter "delta," which
was an equilateral triangle.
Andros could give the
Delta Megazord verbal commands by speaking into the Battlizer.
On command, the Delta Megazord's turret hands,
known as the Gyro Blasters, spun, and the Megazord aimed and shot rapid
alternating bursts of machine gun shells at the Crocovile monsters, stunning them.
The Astro and
Delta Megazords stood side-by-side, and as
the monsters charged, the Megazords fired
their Astro Megazord Blaster and
Gyro Blasters, respectively, with the Astro
Megazord blasting the green one and the Delta Megazord blasting the
brown one; after an explosion, both monsters vanished in flaming energy
which flew into the sky and exploded.
While the Rangers
fought five monsters, Andros called the Delta Megazord to fight giant Destructipede, and the Astro Megaship and docking station flew from the
Delta Megaship, allowing it to fly to Earth and
A beam of green waves from the Evilyzer aboard the Dark Fortress washed over the Delta
Megazord, turning it evil and breaking Andros's
control over it.
The Delta Megazord, not firing as ordered, closed
up its face and flew off, then suddenly swooped frighteningly low over a
street downtown, blowing many buildings apart with blue lasers from its
The Delta Megazord then landed and opened its
face, then shot blue energy bursts from its Gyro Blasters into all the
buildings below, causing many explosions and much destruction.
When Andros ran
screaming for the Delta Megazord to stop, it turned and shot at him,
making a huge explosion near him on the rooftop where he was.
As the Delta Megazord beat on the Astro Megazord, Andros attempted ordering the Delta Megazord to
stop, which it did after the second order; it then, however, suddenly
aimed and fired again with blue pulses from its Gyro Blasters, catching
the Rangers off-guard.
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 beams from the Dark
On the left of the Battlizer port were three lit squares, the top
two being "Brace Setup" and "<Greek delta symbol&rt; Mega E.M.F."
On the right of the port were five squares which
included "Delta Mega" and "Super Galaxy Mega" (alternate name for Astro Delta Megazord).
The aforementioned "Delta Mega" button serves as
the origin of this guide's use of the term "Delta Mega" to
simultaneously refer to both forms of the Delta Megaship and Megazord.
After the Delta Megazord had been bombarded for
some time with the reverse-polarized beam, the Evilyzer finally shorted out, charred and
inoperative, and the Delta Megazord then flew into space and transformed into ship mode.
Saying there was only one way to find out if the
Delta Mega (calling it "he") was back on their side, Andros had the Astro
Megaship, following the Delta Megaship, attempt to link up.
As the Astro
Megaship approached, the Delta Megaship split up into component
parts with purple light.
With rumbling turbulence (only during this first
assembly), the Delta Megazord's legs formed leg coverings over the Astro Megazord's, the back of the Delta
Megazord's head formed a covering in front of the Astro Megazord's head, then the Delta
Megazord's back and arms locked on (after approaching and withdrawing
once from the turbulence); finally, the shoulder turrets rotated into
position, and a lock somewhere was shown engaging, completing the Astro Delta Megazord formation.
After Andros had
initiated Astro Delta separation
from the Megazord cockpit, the
cannons and head and leg coverings disengaged; the Rangers then ran into the Delta Mega's
control room before the main chest portion detached.
With the Delta Mega's control room door as
"south," Ashley took the west wall, Carlos, Andros, and T.J. the north, and Cassie
At the corner in the middle of the
"Communications" console on the Astro
Megaship's bridge was a new clear
plastic tube into which Alpha placed the Mega Vehicle keycards, and they flew up toward
the ceiling; in the Delta Mega's control room, the cards would fly down
to Ashley in an identical tube.
The Delta Megazord flew into space, where it would eventually transform into the
Delta Megaship for its flight toward Jupiter.
In the control room on their voyage, Ashley scanned something approaching from behind
at her station, and the giant spawn
monster then latched onto the rear of the Delta Megaship with its
On Andros's command, the
Delta Megaship fired its afterburners, sending the spawn hurtling away.
the Delta Megaship's scanners detected no indication of any weapons on
A male operator voice spoke over the ship's audio
system, "Release controls. Navigation is now remotely controlled."
The Delta Megaship flew up to the moonbase, where a bay door opened, and the ship
flew down a long tunnel, after which it stopped and the operator voice
said, "Vehicle secured."
The Rangers got
out of the Delta Megaship and found their way through the moonbase, eventually leaving the ship there and
riding the Mega Vehicles back to Earth.
Later, the Astro
Megaship and Delta Megaship were back in the docking station in orbit.
Flying down from the sky to help the Astro Megazord on Centaur B, the Delta Megazord shot blue
lasers from its antennas.
Wearing the Battlizer, Zhane,
working on his own initiative, called in the Delta Megazord while in the
Mega Winger cockpit.
To distract the Psychos while the others recovered the Mega Voyager, Zhane
piloted Mega Winger and controlled the
Delta Megazord with the Battlizer.
The Delta Megazord shot the tentacle right off
giant Jakarak's forehead,
removing his stone spell from the Astro
When the Delta Megazord approached giant red Ecliptor on Ganymede,
Ecliptor pressed a button on his sword's
hilt; his sword crackling with red energy bolts, Ecliptor delivered a flaming red energy slice
which made the Delta Megazord explode and fall back in pieces.
Onboard voice: "Initiating Megazord transformation."
