- young Junior Ranger; helped Rangers against Triskull to rescue her mother
Heather, a young girl perhaps ten, with brown
hair in pigtails, had a red ball as she played hide-and-seek with her
mom in a park, winning again.
Heather's mom had them head out to stop by her
husband's office on the way home.
As the two collected their things, the five teens drove by in the Rescue Rover, siren wailing, and Heather
excitedly exclaimed, "Look, Mommy, the Power
On the thirteenth floor of a glass skyscraper,
Heather's mom knocked on her husband's office door while Heather
followed her ball into an empty office.
As Heather watched through the office windows,
surrounding doors suddenly opened, and at least four sword-wielding Ghouls, creatures with gray faces in
black cloaks, swarmed out and grabbed the mother as Heather watched,
carried the kicking and shouting woman inside what had been her husband
Tim's office, and Heather ran away.
In what was now a dark laboratory, Heather's mom was cornered on
all sides by Ghouls until she was
backed against shelves of bottled miniature office workers, including
her miniaturized husband.
The woman's husband Tim was calling out from the
tube behind her for her to get him out of there.
Tim then called for his wife, perhaps named
Sharon, to watch out, and the blue demon Triskull stepped out.
As Sharon screamed, Triskull laughed and teleported her in miniature
into the last empty tube.
Triskull had the Ghouls begin taking her life energy
at once; as was happening to Tim, Sharon became cold as green sparkles
were drained from her with pulsing red energy rings at the top of her
tube, flowing into an apparatus where Trakeena was hidden.
Learning they had a witness, Triskull was dispatched by Trakeena, and he morphed into an office security
employee to handle it.
At the lobby, Heather described her encounter to
a receptionist, but the lady didn't believe her.
As Heather was disappointed, an office security
agent, secretly Triskull in human form,
believed her and took her to the elevator where Ghouls were waiting for her, and she
As human Triskull
laughed evilly and grabbed Heather from behind while a Ghoul grabbed her hand, she shrieked
and threw her ball, which bounced off the Ghoul's head and then hit Triskull in the face, allowing her to flee.
In her tube, Heather's mom was growing weak as Olympius checked on the life force energy which
was to be given to Queen Bansheera, but Trakeena would then emerge planning to
doublecross the demons and use the energy
to destroy the Galaxy Rangers' precious
In a park plaza, Heather was crying on a fountain
edge when Carter offered to help, telling her
his name; seeing the Rescue Morpher on
his wrist, she asked, "You're a Power
Ranger?" and he chuckled that he was.
Heather told Carter of
the monster, apparently referring to one of the Ghouls, but she was disappointed to
see Carter didn't believe her either.
Human Triskull walked
up, and Heather startled; the man returned the ball she'd left, saying
little kids had the wildest imaginations, and Carter agreed politely as the man left.
Carter privately told
Heather he did believe her, leaving to check the guy out, but as he
followed the man in secrecy, he spotted Heather sneaking up as well, so
he pulled her aside.
Heather planned to help Carter, insisting he'd taken her mom, and she
wanted to help find her, so Carter agreed but
said she had to do what he said.
Heather was delighted, asking, "Kinda like I'm a
junior Ranger?" and Carter searchingly agreed.
Heather stood and saluted with a cry of,
"Lightspeed Rescue!" but Carter pulled her back
down behind the bush for them to get going.
Following human Triskull in an alley, Carter and Heather were soon confronted by five Ghouls, whom Carter attempted to fight while unmorphed.
Grappled by three Ghouls, Heather repeatedly bashed one
in the head with her ball, but a Ghoul grappled her, and the pounded
one prepared its sword to strike her as she screamed.
Suddenly, the Blue and Yellow Galaxy Rangers leapt in and kicked the Ghouls away, and Carter fought as well after looking at them and
Watching the fight, Heather passed out.
In Joel, Chad, and Carter's quarters in the Aquabase later, Heather lay in the bottom bed
of Chad's bunk as Carter
came to check on her, Dana by her side saying
she'd be fine.
Heather asked if he was going to save her mom,
and Carter replied they were going to do their
Carter asked Heather
where she'd seen the monster; she sat up to show him, but he laid her
back down, saying she was awesome.
Just then, Chad ran up and
reported trouble, and as the teens, Leo, Maya, and Kai met in a hallway, Heather ran after them.
Carter told Heather she
couldn't come this time, but she protested he'd said she was a junior Ranger, and the other Lightspeed and Galaxy teens nodded approvingly, so he let

explosions around the Rangers, and Heather
shouted in protest from the Rover as Triskull vanished, leaving the eight unmorphed
teens weak in the rocky rubble as Heather ran up to them.
Carter told Heather they
were okay and that they were going to get her mom now; as they couldn't
storm the building while it was filled with innocent people, Carter had an idea and asked for Heather's help.
In the lab as the
life force cylinders neared full, Triskull
informed Trakeena; she tapped on Tim's tube
and said as Heather's mom struggled to stay conscious that the universe
would tremble when it saw her green again.
Hiding behind bushes near the glass skyscraper,
Carter told Heather to pull the fire alarm when
no one was watching; she protested that her dad had told her not to
except in an emergency, and he agreed but said this was a special case.
Walking up to the building, Heather remarked to
herself that being a junior Ranger was a
After sneaking past the front desk, Heather
pulled the alarm, and people panicked a bit and began running out.
Among fleeing people, Carter stopped Heather and congratulated her,
having her wait nearby as they went in; Leo and Carter would then go up after Triskull alone.
On the thirteenth floor, morphed Leo and Carter kicked in the
lab door, finding the shrunken people
whose life energy was almost completely drained.
Attacked by Ghouls, the Red Rangers attempted to
fight back until being joined by the Green and Pink Galaxy Rangers.
Victorious, the four saw the nearly full life
force liquid cylinders, and Kendrix said they
had to figure out a way to free the people, and fast.
Just then, Trakeena
emerged from the shadows with her staff, startling Damon and Kendrix;
blasting them twice, Trakeena sent them
crashing out the wall of the skyscraper with her second bolt.
As the Rangers fought the demons in the street below, Trakeena sat in her metal chair apparatus and
began to mutate with the life force energy, but a purple dagger would
fly in and taint the process, causing her to fly out in a purple cloud.
As green speck trails from their tubes, the
victims in the lab materialized lying on
the floor and came to following Trakeena's
Police and paramedics helped the groggy people as
they emerged from the building, Heather's parents finding their daughter
outside with the Lightspeed and Galaxy teens.
Happily hugging her parents, Heather told them
she'd helped the Rangers, and Carter
approached, giving Heather a silver "Lightspeed Rescue" badge bearing a
Lightspeed sigil as he told them that she
was in fact an official junior Ranger.
Heather was amazed, and her mom hugged her
