- Prince Gasket's palace and arena in another dimension
In an area which looked like the surface of the
moon with a dark blue sky overhead (perhaps a
part of Gasket's palace or an area
outside the Machine Skybase), Louie Kaboom wondered what a sound was, and
Archerina then attacked him as Gasket watched.
With a blue energy bolt from his finger, Prince Gasket made Tommy vanish from Angel Grove Lake; Tommy would later be shown, as Zeo Ranger Five, restrained in a chair in
a dark room with Gasket's Brain Drain device on his head.
Tommy's communicator signal was being blocked.
When the Power
Chamber traced Tommy's energy residue to
another dimension, the monitor displayed a map of several cocentric
rings with adjoining rectangular areas, one of which Zeo Ranger Five was in; this appears to
indicate that Tommy was being held in a room off
the main area of the Machine Arena (which would be shown in 442-Kng1).
Displaying the map that looked like a map of the
Machine Arena, the Power Chamber monitor
gave an approximate coordinates of the "dimensional rift" as 34 72 4".
According to Gasket, the dark room in which Tommy was located (apparently, from the display in
441-ZR5?, a part of the Machine Arena) was
also a part of Gasket's own palace.
The Machine Arena had a red tint to everything;
around the walls were banners, each bearing a large gear design with a
smaller gear to the lower right of the larger gear.
fought Cogs in the Machine Arena to test his
strength, dozens of monsters, both those
belonging to the Machine Empire and
those having been used by Rita and Zedd, were in the stands.
At the lake was
a transport area where, when the holographic entryway was activated, a
translucent image of Zeo Ranger Five
lured people (the Rangers, Gasket intended) into a warp to the Machine
The holographic entryway sucked in morphed Jason and, soon afterward, Bulk and Skull; while Jason appeared in the middle of the arena, Gasket had Archerina deposit the two stowaways into a
holding cell, where he'd deal with them later.
There was alien writing
on a sign on the wall in the arena's holding cell.
Jason ran into a large,
spherical green energy grid surrounding the inner area of the arena when
he tried to escape; the grid was invisible unless actively repelling
As he introduced the fight between Altor and Gold
Ranger, Gasket seemed to be speaking
into Video Vulture, the
camera for the image the Power Chamber's
Viewing Screen was receiving.
When Tommy decided to
fight Gold Ranger, Gasket called for positions, and Tommy then slide-teleported through the green
Elsewhere in the facility was a storage room of
some sort, guarded by Cogs.
The control room of the arena was off an open
courtyard (with a tree visible in the distance above the courtyard in
To teleport away,
the teens touched their communicators and turned into energy but
immediately resolidified, as the forcefield blocked their escape.
The teens were unable to
summon their Zeonizers (or, in Jason's case, to morph) in the Machine Arena while Gasket's forcefield was blocking their
As Trider continued
destroying everything in sight in the control room, the room eventually
exploded with Trider inside, apparently
destroying the Cogs behind Bulk and Skull; Trider soon emerged from the flames, unharmed.
After the control room had been destroyed, the
energy grid appeared and then dissolved, allowing the teens to teleport
back home and Trider to take Bulk and Skull home.
When the Rangers
destroyed Protectron, Gasket teleported himself, Archerina, Klank, and Sprocket away, and they were all then with
Machina in an industrial-type area with the
gear banners from the Machine Arena on the walls; this was probably a
different area of Gasket's palace, since
there was never a daytime sky over the Machine Skybase.
As part of Gasket's and Archerina's plan to isolate Kat, one doorway in the west wing of Detective Stone's whodunit party mansion was a
glowing yellow gateway which led to a dungeon which Archerina referred to as her own.
Adam, Tanya, Rocky, and Tommy all eventually wandered through the yellow
gateway and ended up in the dungeon, where their communicators and teleportation didn't work.
Tommy tried calling Zordon
when the four teens were unable to find any way
out, but they were then shown walking down a tunnel after they'd found
that their communicators didn't work.
The captured teens were
unable to call the Power Chamber or teleport from Archerina's dungeon, but when Alpha found a frequency that could reach the teens, Zordon's voice
came over their communicators, telling
them to adjust their communicators to
his frequency, which they did by turning the outer silver dial on their
communicators; after this, Zordon was able to teleport them into the Power Chamber.
Alpha was unable to find a frequency that would
reach Jason's communicator, but Jason was not in the dungeon, but rather the
mansion where Kat's communicator had worked.
Spying on Detective
Stone, Bulk, and Skull in a Viewing Screen just like the one in the
Machine Skybase's balcony room, Gasket and Archerina were standing in a rocky lunar area with a dark blue sky overhead, much like
the area in which they'd attacked Louie
Kaboom in 440-TJOB.
In their dark blue-skied outdoor room, Gasket had Archerina turn Detective
Stone's supposed secret weapon into a monster; to accomplish this
task, a blue energy gear fired from the base of the Machine Skybase's main tower, turning Detective Stone's Mechaterpillar fishing lure into
the Mechaterpillar monster.
In an industrial area with trees and sky in the
background, Gasket and Archerina used two sets of headphones and a
small dish device to listen to the conversation between Sprocket and the newly-returned King Mondo in the Machine Skybase.
Gasket and Archerina retreated to their own planet for now, and Gasket said he would come up with a new
plan, saying if Mondo caught him, he was
