- lost volcanic island inside Nemesis Triangle; former prison of Maligore
Elgar referred to Lerigot's Golden Key
as the key to the island of Muiranthias.
After receiving Divatox's ultimatum that they surrender Lerigot, Zordon believed
that Divatox planned "to use Lerigot and his Golden
Key to pass through the treacherous Nemesis Triangle into another
dimension," and that once there she would "likely travel to the lost
island of Muiranthias and attempt to join forces with an evil creature
named Maligore, at which point not even the
Zords (presumably the Zeozords, Super
Zeozords, etc.) would be able to stop them.
The Turbozords which
the teens created would allow them to pass
safely through the Nemesis Triangle to rescue their friends from
Communication between the Rangers and the Power Chamber was impossible while the Rangers were inside the Nemesis Triangle.
In the Power
Chamber, Zordon told the Rangers to take their Turbozords across the "great desert" to the sea; there they would find
the Ghost Galleon, a phantom ship which
would take them and their Zords to the

It's unknown why Divatox didn't merely teleport the subcraft closer to the Nemesis Triangle rather
than wasting at least a day traveling by sea.
There were reefs at the ocean bottom near the Nemesis Triangle which caused Divatox to have the subcraft ascend.
The Nemesis Triangle, shown as the Ghost Galleon approached, was a wall of dark
blue dense cloudy material, with a stormy sky above, lightning all
On Divatox's subcraft, warriors were being shaken up, and there
were flashes of light in the sub, both on the
bridge and in the bilge.
Underwater, the barrier of the Nemesis Triangle
was a rippling wall of reflective material.
Purring in tones with his eyes closed, Lerigot unleashed gold sparkles of energy from
the Golden Key, sparkles which flowed from
the subcraft's exterior into the wall of the
Nemesis Triangle, and the subcraft freely
passed through with flickering light around its edges at the points of
entry; this scene was confirmed by the flashback in 501-SIT1.
Lightning bolts struck the masts of the Ghost Galleon as it approached the triangle.
When the teens held
their keys toward the center of their
circular group, Ranger-colored
light glowed from each key's blade, and
the teens seemed to have trouble holding them
steady; an orange burst of light then flung the teens back, and the galleon passed through the rippling,
translucent, dark blue wall of the Nemesis Triangle.
In the crow's nest some time later, Justin used a pair of black binoculars to spot
As the Ghost Galleon approached Muiranthias, Adam told the others that Zordon had said Maligore's volcano was inside the Serpent's
Temple, but Zordon hadn't mentioned anything
about a volcano or a Serpent's Temple in the Power Chamber.
The Malachians were savage tribal warriors
who inhabited the island of Muiranthias; according to Divatox, they were the guardians of Maligore.
Far off in the distance behind the Ghost Galleon as it approached Muiranthias
appeared to be another island.
Above or near the sealed doorway leading into Maligore's temple was a mountain in the shape of
a large sinister-looking monster face.
Outside the temple, Divatox let Lerigot out
of his cage and removed the mind blocker on him, then gave him the Golden Key, which he used to unlock the door to
the temple with a swirl of golden energy specks, despite Yara's protests.
Divatox took the Golden Key back after the temple had been
The unlocked door to the temple swung open when
Divatox pushed it.
The temple was adorned with steaming jugs of human skulls; Divatox
and crew entered through a giant stone
cobra doorway, and there was a flaming lava pit in the center of the
Divatox commented on
how much she liked the temple's interior, as though she hadn't seen it
Justin, leading the Rangers, found an open cave entrance to the
temple, making Lerigot's unlocking of the
front door for Divatox completely unnecessary.
Somewhere on Muiranthias, a volcano began to
erupt just before Maligore broke out of the

plains area surrounded by mountains), where they fought giant Maligore with the Turbo Megazord.

a jet was visible in the sky above Muiranthias as the Turbo Megazord destroyed giant Maligore.
The volcano continued to erupt after Maligore had been destroyed.
Elgar, steaming as he
attended Divatox's gathering of villains some time later, said he was still a
little crispy from the Pit of Eternal Fire.
