- magical book associated with GalaxyRangers and Lost Galaxy
One day, somewhere between the Earth and the Eurolean
Galaxy, Terra Venture received a
static-filled emergency transmission from an alien (referred to in this guide as an
alien crewmember) begging for help;
their ship was under attack, with explosions in the background, and the
alien frantically didn't know if
anyone could hear him.
Presumably weeks or months later (see "Missing time"), Terra Venture came within ten kilometers of
the alien ship, and a crew of soldiers approached in a heliship, not seeing any sign of an
On the ship's web-covered bridge, a control wall
was still looping the distress transmission, which had been recorded an
unknown period of time in the past.
At the bridge's transmission seat was a crewmember's skeleton wrapped in
sticky webbing; a faint glow briefly came from its chest inside.
Slightly disgusted, Leo
pulled open sticky flaps/panels that might've been clothing, a cocoon,
or even the alien's chest cavity; he revealed and pulled out the Galaxy
The book had a thick brown leathery cover, with a
square indentation on the cover containing its golden emblem, a vertical
twist wrapped around three evenly-spaced vertical dots.
Mike reported to Terra Venture that the message had been
playing over and over and that whatever had been there was now long
gone, but Kai suddenly detected an unknown lifeform rapidly moving in an erratic
path through the tunnels toward the soldiers; it had probably reacted to the
disturbing of the Galaxy Book.
As the soldiers
moved through the tunnels after the creature had abducted their teammate

attacked when they shouted and aimed at it.
creature, with a humanoid physique but quite monstrous features,
dropped down and attacked, slashing them and their weapons, knocking
Leo grabbed his dropped
rifle after being knocked back and shot at the creature, but it leapt up the wall
onto the ceiling, where it crawled along dodging the laser fire, then
dropped down and shoved Leo against a railing,
making him drop the Galaxy Book over the edge.
After the creature had retreated, Leo said they were the only ones left, and Mike said they had to get his team back; Leo then realized the book was missing from his pack.
Below, near a cobwebbed crewmember skeleton, the alien creature picked up the Galaxy
Book, the front square of which was glowing blue.
Later, as Leo and Mike released their fellow soldiers, who had been sealed, unharmed, into
cocoons near some similarly cocooned alien crewmember skeletons, Leo saw a glowing spot of light near the chest of a
crewmember skeleton in a cocoon,
and he tore it open to find the Galaxy Book having been recently placed
inside the cocoon over the crewmember's chest.
As the soldiers
climbed up, Leo told Mike
he'd gotten the book, but just then, the creature from the ceiling peeked
around the corner, apparently preparing to attack.
Leo and Mike grabbed their weapons off the floor and ran in
another direction to buy the others some time as they fled.
After Leo and Mike had blown open an exterior hatch, the heliship flew up beside the doorway;
Leo leapt across the void into the heliship, and Mike began to leap holding the Galaxy Book, but the
alien creature caught his foot, not
letting go until Blue Ranger
flew by and slashed him with his Quasar
Escaping in the heliship as the alien vessel exploded, Mike and Leo sat down and
looked curiously at the mysterious Galaxy Book, wondering what this
book's story was.
In the Science
Division, scientists were all over working on various displays from
the Galaxy Book.
Kendrix was given a
color copy of a page from the book.
Stanton entered and asked the senior scientist, Dr. Kovek, if there was any luck with
the book, but Dr. Kovek replied that they couldn't even tell him what
the title was, as they just weren't getting anywhere.
said they were completely in the dark, but they would keep working on
it, as he was sure they would come up with something.
Meanwhile, Kendrix was
flipping through pages of the actual book, filled with symbols and
The pages of the

Kendrix stumbled upon a
torn page with the remaining left half showing a color drawing of the
After hours, alone in the Science Division, Kendrix continued looking through the book's
pages, again coming to the torn Galactabeast page.
With sudden inspiration, Kendrix looked through the loose photocopy pile
beside her, finding the other half of the torn page.
The other half showed three more Galactabeasts, a red humanoid shape
with the body of a rhino, a standing blue phoenix, and a grayish-blue
shark above them; these were the original Galactabeast forms of Deviot's three evil Zords: the Zenith
Carrierzord, the Centaurus Megazord, and
the Stratoforce Megazord.
When and why the
half of the page containing the three lost Galactabeasts had been torn out is
unknown, as well as when and where the Science Division had obtained it.
Presumably later the same evening after Deviot's evil Zord attack, Kendrix and Kai worked
alone on a Science Division computer to attempt to translate the symbols
on the page of the Galaxy Book showing the Galactabeasts, but Kai
said it looked like it was impossible to decode; apparently the pages
had been scanned into the computer in
addition to the printed reproductions.
Kendrix thought the
book might be the only way to stop the evil Zords, though she didn't yet realize
that they were the three lost Galactabeasts shown in the book.
The Galaxy Book was now in a glass case in the
front of the lab by the windows, turned to the Galactabeast page with the loose half lying
next to its other half.
During the evil Zords second attack, the Galaxy Book
was now turned to a different page inside its glass case when Kendrix sneaked into the still-deserted Science Division.
A while after displaying "Searching" while on the
Galactabeast page, Kendrix's computer
continued searching with images of the three evil Zords slowly replacing the drawings of
the three missing Galactabeasts
while Kendrix urged, "It's gotta be there.
The presence of a picture of the Zenith Carrierzord despite its isolation indicated
that the Zord had been located somewhere inside Terra Venture.
The book was now
turned to the Galactabeast page again
inside its case.
Suddenly, the computer displayed, "Found," and showed the
three Galactabeast drawings beside
images of the three evil Zords, then
made an equals sign between them to indicate that they were one and the
Headquarters that same night, Stanton addressed an assembly of GSA officers; nearby in the empty Science Division, the Galaxy Book was now closed in its case.
During Stanton's speech (specifically, right
after his remark about mysteries ahead), the square on the Galaxy Book's
cover began to glow bluish-white.

finally concentrate on the Galaxy Book; she was the first person to
speak the book's name, which scientists in the Science Division would later use as

successfully stole the Galaxy Book in a cloth bag, but Maya would take it from her and hide it in some
bushes while fighting the monster.
It's unknown how the
Galaxy Book was returned to the Science
In the near-empty Science Division during the Space Rangers' stay on Terra Venture, Kendrix was flipping through the Galaxy Book when
she came to a page bearing a drawing and information of the Savage Sword, the name of which
she then exclaimed to herself right after a fellow scientist had left
Beside the Savage Sword drawing (shown in
its third form) was a red design of two concentric rings around a red
circle with four radial lines; at the end of each line, interrupting the
outer ring, was an additional red circle.
Below the red design was a solar system diagram,
comprised of small, medium, and large-sized planets; in the inner orbit was a medium red planet; in the middle orbit was a medium yellow
planet, lined up with the first, and sharing
an orbit with a large red planet; in an outer
orbit was a medium blue planet lined up with
the other three in a straight line, sharing an orbit with a medium red
planet and a small planet, perhaps blue.
Kendrix discerned that
the Savage Sword was on the
planet Rashon, to which Terra Venture happened to be extremely
Psycho Pink said
she would be unstoppable with the Savage Sword; Kendrix told Cassie that
the sword was more powerful than all the Quasar Sabers combined.
In a mountainous area on Rashon, Psycho
Pink arrived, weakly recalling that the Galaxy Book had said the Savage Sword was somewhere in
the area, and she soon spotted the sword sticking out of a rock, as the
Quasar Sabers had been kept on Mirinoi.
The Savage Sword began in a simple
form, but after two transformations from draining Cassie's energy, it would transform into the
massive form shown in the Galaxy Book.
One night in the Science Division, a researcher named
Ramsey began to speak out words from the Galaxy Book as he made them out
from his monitor.
When Ramsey spoke, "Keonta, Karova, Melanta," the
Galaxy Book began crackling slightly with blue energy in its glass case.
The second word, "Karova," was the name of KO-35's star system.
The proper third
word was apparently "Melanite," as revealed in 742-EsLG.
approached and asked Ramsey what he was working on; Ramsey replied that
that certain phrase appeared to be particularly important.
As Kovek read
the three words again, he looked back and saw the crackling, back but
now a bit stronger.
Approaching the book, intrigued, Kovek repeated the three words twice,
and the blue energy bolts continued increasing with violent intensity.
Consulting the monitor, Ramsey added, "Hakova!"
and powerful blue energy bolts ripped through the area, shorting out
much of the colony's power as lightning bolts
crackled down from the control tower
and into the city dome, striking at least
one building in the city.
Mike found that the energy
pulse had burned out all of the transformers, which could perhaps be
replaced within 48 hours.
ordered to Kai that the book was to be locked up,
with no further research until they learned what was going on.
Some time later that night, the mysterious Guardian arrived on Terra Venture; on his forehead was the gold
symbol from the Galaxy Book's cover.
After being thrown in a detention cell for
attempting to steal the book, the Guardian
explained to Kai that he was the guardian of the
Galaxy Book and that it had been stolen centuries ago; recently, it had
sent forth a small energy pulse after someone had begun to recite the
Keonta spell; had the entire spell been spoken, he said, the result
would have been unimaginable.
The Galaxy Book, said the Guardian, had never been meant to be a research
experiment; he needed to take it back and guard it, and, he said, it was
Kai's destiny to help him.
The next morning, the Guardian showed Kai a
holographic projection, showing Kai picking up the
Galaxy Book from sand with the other teens
behind him; able to see the future, the Guardian spoke, "Everything will transpire as
written, in time."
When Deviot attacked Kai to get the Galaxy Book which Kai had stolen from the Science Division, the Guardian fought him, shocking Deviot with the warrior's presence.
Picking up the box containing the Galaxy Book
after the Guardian was weak, Deviot remarked that it was finally his.
Before vanishing from a fatal blast from Deviot, the Guardian
told Kai that he had to guard the book now.
As the other Rangers arrived, Deviot said he'd just begun, opening the Galaxy
Book and proceeding to read the Keonta spell: "Keonta, Karova, Melanite,
After the first four words, the sky grew dark,
and blue energy bolts began crackling from the book.
Deviot read the rest of

then rip in two. Reality ends, time is tossed, as galaxies found become

With orange energy bolts, Deviot was morphed into a monstrous,
greenish-yellow, biomechanical form.
The sky lightened, and the book fell to the
Deviot said he had more
power than they could ever imagine, and he proceeded to pound the Rangers; apparently invulnerable to their
Orion powers, he said the power he now
held was limitless.
After the apparent destruction of giant
monster-Deviot, the Rangers ran down a hillside toward the
Galaxy Book, but it suddenly blew open with blue energy bolts, and a
bluish cyclone enveloped the book, keeping the Rangers back with a strong wind.
Blue energy bolts from the book struck around the
Rangers, sending them flying down a hill
and apparently demorphing.
The teens soon
approached the book after things had calmed, a large black charred area
extending around the book.
Kai approached and picked
the book up just like the Guardian's hologram
As Kai recalled the Guardian's words of seeing into the future as he
flipped through the book, the sky grew dark again, and Leo had the teens go.
In the tunnel leading to the city dome, the teens
stopped suddenly, realizing the surrounding space was full of
brightly-colored nebulae, making the starscape a huge pattern of rainbow
Thinking, Kai repeated the
phrase, "Reality ends, time is tossed, as galaxies found become galaxies
lost," and realized with astonishment that they were in the Lost Galaxy, and Damon
couldn't believe it; how Kai (and probably the
other teens) had known of the Lost Galaxy is unknown, though it's doubtful
that their only experience with the term was the reference to "galaxies

up in some energy storm, Mutiny laughed,
saying it was always the same story; every hundred years or so, he said,

but whether Mutiny was being truthful is
After Mike had allowed
himself to be kidnapped to infiltrate Barbarax's slave
camp, Leo and Kai were alone
in their room.
Getting the Galaxy Book from his bunk, Kai said the book had gotten them into this mess and
would get them out; he'd apparently been keeping the book ever since
stealing it from the Science
Division in 735-EnLG.
Leo wished Kendrix were there, as she'd know what to do.
Kai flipped through the
pages to find the Keonta spell which Deviot had
read, and he soon found the page.
Kai read the four words, "Karontu, Karova, Melanite,
Hakova," but nothing happened, perhaps because the first word was
supposed to be "Keonta."
The Keonta spell's page was near the end of the
Leo thought to try reading
the spell backwards to reverse it.
Leo wrote the four words in
backwards spelling as Kai read them out in his
improper pronunciation again.
The two began to read the backwards spell,
alternating words: "Avokah," "Etivalem," "Avorak..." at which point Leo nervously gave Kai the
notepad to finish, sliding back a bit.
On the page was no
main script for the spell, unless it was the border of strange designs
around the center area of the page.
When Kai spoke the final
reversed word, "Atnoek," nothing happened, but then suddenly a blue
energy bolt sent them both flying back.
Leo and Kai watched from behind the couch as the violently
crackling Galaxy Book then turned into spectral blue energy (quite like
the blue energy spirits associated with Magna Defender) and rippled right out the
window; this is the last time it was seen.
In space with thundering blue bursts, a glowing
yellow energy fissure tore open in space, opening a ripple-edged portal (like those in 701-QsQ1) containing a rapidly-flowing
purple/blue/white twisting tunnel (like the one shown in the transition
to Mirinoi in 701-QsQ1).
As GSA officers watched the
widening portal, someone remarked, "The portal!" implying it was identical to the
(unseen) one which had brought them to the Lost
When asked if he had
any ideas where they could land after they'd escaped the Lost Galaxy, Stanton brought up a monitor display of
a planet within reach, what would later be
revealed to be Mirinoi, which might or might not have been located in the Lost Galaxy originally.
Mirinoi was now shown to be a bright green planet
with white cloud wisps and a rocky gray (insanely close) moon, though
the planet had not previously been shown with clouds or a moon.
