- planet in a prohibited sector; crossroads for the forces of evil and other intergalactic criminals/fugitives
Upon realizing that Darkonda had kidnapped his sister, Andros secretly went to the planet Onyx, a red
planet with yellow rings, located in a prohibited sector.
Beneath Onyx on the Megaship's star chart was "Onyx" and "661
32;" this presumably set it within the Milky Way, if the numerical address were 661.32 to signify local coordinates.
Onyx had a blue sky with an orange tint to its
atmosphere, and the area where Andros went to
spy on the villains gathered there was like an
Old West town in the desert.
Pulling up to the Onyx
Tavern where two Quantrons and two Tengas stood beside a parked Velocifighter, three more Quantrons were driving Piranhatron bikes.
Beside the saloon were a staircase, a satellite
dish, and some crates behind which Andros put
on a cloak.
Inside the saloon, the Onyx Tavern, were Octophantom (just leaving), Sinister Simian, Batarax, Darkonda, a Crocovile, Skygantor, two "Gray" aliens, Psycho
Yellow's monster form, Marvo the
Meanie, and numerous other monsters, mutants, and aliens,
including what looked like a cyborg woman, a hammer-headed silver
robot, and a dinosaur-like bartender who served an ant creature a
steaming canister of sugar bowl zinger; Darkonda teased the ant that he looked just like
his aunt, not amusing the ant.
upstairs; down the hallway above was a "Bottled Drinks" sign, and Darkonda went past that and knocked on a door
beside a "Rooms" door.
An aged elven fellow opened the door a crack and
apologized that they were closed, but Darkonda forced his way in and picked up the
elf, ordering that he give him a vial of strength potion.
The elf scurried into the back to look while Darkonda waited outside.
Speaking with Ecliptor
in the back, the elf told him to hurry, or Darkonda would destroy him; Ecliptor gave him a vial of red liquid to give
Darkonda, then picked up the elf and insisted
he'd never been there.
Hearing something, Darkonda approached the door, and as the elf
returned with the vial, Darkonda looked
inside, but Ecliptor had stepped back into
the shadows; Darkonda then took the vial and
At a table, some villains played a card game with
circular cards; the dealer was a hooded monster razor-edged teeth,
playing with a green-skinned alien with two bulges in his head and a
hideous face, a creature wearing a metal mask with eyeholes and
grin-like mouth slots, and a villain known as Skygantor.
The dealer won, and the green-skinned alien got
up, with Darkonda taking his seat.
Darkonda put down a
blue gem and told the dealer to deal, but a cloaked Andros then joined the game.
When asked by Skygantor who he was, Andros, speaking in a low throaty voice, replied
he was just a traveler, and Darkonda agreed,
"Aren't we all," and had the dealer deal.
The circular cards had "Onyx Tavern" printed on
Each card player put down one crystal, making a
total of five.
On the walls of the tavern were several
dinosaur-like lizard monster heads.
As the dealer dealt three cards to each player,
Darkonda took out a wad of necklaces and
jewels to bet with.
Skygantor put down five crystals,
and Andros put down five more; the
silver-masked player put in a necklace, and Darkonda added a pearl necklace, calling.
When Skygantor took out five black keycards to bet with, the dealer
yelled that they were worthless, but Darkonda
carefully examined them with intrigue, asking where he'd gotten them.
Skygantor defensively told the
dealer, "I stole them when we battled on Eltar!"; the dealer was unimpressed.
Skygantor added, "They were Zordon's! They must be worth something!" and Darkonda agreed, saying the keycards were priceless.
Giving in, the dealer then shrugged, "Eh, it's
only money!" and shoved in his whole pile of necklaces and gems.
Skygantor showed his hand, and the
cards had orange, red, and yellow squares and triangles on them.
Skygantor had three zanabas, but
Darkonda topped that with five zanabatars
(still only three cards).
The silver-masked player and dealer were beaten,
and the dealer threw down his cards and grumbled, "Not again!"
Andros laid down his
cards, and upon seeing it was a zinta, Skygantor stood and aimed a large
gun at Andros, telling him, "You cheat!"
Andros kicked Skygantor's legs out from under
him and caught his gun, aiming it back at him; he growled at Skygantor, "You're the one who was
cheating, and you're lucky I'm in a good mood today," then set the gun
on the table and walked over to the bar to look through the keycards, which were the only prize
he'd taken from the table.
Darkonda ordered from
the "server" two Onyx juice specials for the traveler and himself, and
Andros would drink from the steaming cup.
Spotting the Morpher on Andros's arm, Darkonda
slashed at him, calling him Red
Ranger, at which point the bar patrons began to get anxious, either
from the mention of the Ranger, or merely from
the fight breaking out.
The bartender kept wiping the bar as the fight
moved past the bar near the steps.
As the fight moved up the steps, a female alien
planning to go down was frightened off.
At various locations in the Old West streets of
Onyx were Quantrons, Piranhatrons, Coralizer, Punchabunch, Cogs, the Toy
robot, Octophantom, Stag Beetle, Marvo, and Tengas.
One shop on the street Andros flew through was a restaurant, and another
was a bank, with another a motel.
Recalling the struggle on Onyx when interrogated by Astronema, Skygantor described the Red Ranger's presence and said
that Darkonda had eventually discovered he
was a Ranger in disguise.
In space upwards of a year after 643-CTD2, was an orange planet with lighter and darker areas that made the planet
look geologically active, as well as a green moon; this planet was later
called "Onyx" despite it not looking like the ringed Onyx in 616-FDrk.
through a blue-skied desert, perhaps a salt flat, leaving her staff
behind in the desert; she eventually staggered into the Onyx Tavern.
Onyx's air was no longer tinted red as it had
been in 616-FDrk.
At the bar were numerous human-like tough guys, but each having a slight
modification/mutation in the face; the dinosaur-like bartender was still
At a table, Villamax
played the round card game with a tough-looking Western-type human.
At the stairs, Villamax's friend Kegler said a happy, "Well, goodbye then," to an
alien with insect antennae like Trakeena's, a red face, and a gold cloak.
Among assorted human-like and alien beings in the saloon were
several past monsters (all of them based on
living creatures), including Rhinoblaster, Fearog, Waspicable, a Barillian Bug monster, and Termitus.
Also in the saloon were an ant-like monster playing cards with the Barillian Bug, as well as what
may have been the alien dealer from 616-FDrk.
Trakeena entered the
bar, and everyone looked at her as she approached the bar.
Trakeena pushed her
way between two rough human-like bar patrons and rudely ordered a drink.
On the wall behind
the regular bartender was a stone cobra head quite resembling the one in
the Tomb of Forever on Earth.
One of the men, an unsavory man with an
alien-shaped snout in place of a nose, leered at Trakeena; the other had an alien-shaped forehead
and wore a metal mouth/nose mask.
Trakeena took the
mouthplate guy's green drink and drank some, making him angry, but she
then spit it out on the snout guy's outfit; he told her his mom had
gotten him that.
The mouthplate guy wanted an apology for his
friend, and she began to walk off sarcastically, saying the next time
she came there, the drinks had better be free.
The snout guy grabbed Trakeena's arm, and when she went to hit him,
the mouthplate guy grabbed her arm, letting the snout guy hit her in the
stomach, then threw her back, knocking her back into the table where the
Barillian Bug and ant monster were playing cards.
Trakeena charged, but
a black-haired guy with an eyepatch and gross protruding head bumps (), sitting at a table nearby, tripped her, and the snout guy threw her,
making her feet slam onto Villamax's table.
Getting up, Trakeena
grabbed a glass bottle and hit it repeatedly against the side of the
table but couldn't break it, making the crowd laugh at her.
A dinosaur-like monster head with horns was on
Trakeena threw the
bottle, but the snout guy caught it and shattered it in his hand, then
bumped arms gleefully with the eyepatch guy.
Trakeena was thrown
right out of the saloon by the three guys, and when they approached her
outside, Villamax said it was no way to treat
Villamax, whom the
three guys didn't know, took off his shortsword belt to teach them a
lesson in manners.
Destructoid was across the
The three guys attacked, but Villamax beat them up, making them run away.
A place across the street from the saloon had
Some time later, perhaps weeks or months (see "Missing time"), Trakeena returned to the saloon, where the same
two guys were at the bar, and the third at the table.
Soccadillo was now in the
saloon as well.
With two fingers, Trakeena held down the snout guy's arm he was
holding his drink with, took the drink, and released, making him punch
himself in the face.
Trakeena drank the
green liquid, then shattered the glass in her hand in front of the
mouthplate guy's face.
Trakeena beat up the
two guys and spin-kicked a chair held by the third guy, shattering it,
making the three run away; she then joined Villamax outside, done showing off.
A "Billiards" sign hung on the wall outside the
The night after Kendrix's death, Trakeena and crew watched as the four Rangers flew into space after the missing Quasar Saber.
Knowing news about the saber would travel fast in
the underworld, Trakeena sent Villamax to check for rumors, and he knew
exactly where it would end up; presumably he thought of Onyx.
Soon after finding the Quasar Saber in his field on Gwinnet, the short humanoid Runtus had sent or taken it to an auction
on Onyx, perhaps having received gold nuggets in
payment; learning this, Deviot sent word to Trakeena by way of Ironite.
In the Onyx Tavern, a crowd of monsters and some humanoids had gathered for an auction; the
auctioneer was a bearded bald man with bone spikes in his head, dressed
in a Victorian nobleman outfit; his assistant, a pale woman with purple
hair in a red dress, held a silver laser cannon, for which the bid rose
from 160 to 180 Zanabatars.
Present at the auction were Oysterizer, Flamite, the ant moster from 721-Heir, Marvo the Meanie, Sinister Simian, Piranhatrons, the dealer alien from 616-FDrk, Soccadillo, Termitus, a red Crocotox, both Shark Brothers, the blue beetle monster, and future
Hoping to entice higher bids, the auctioneer said
certainly this weapon that had belonged to Tahaga the Great was worth
more; thinking it still worked, the auctioneer accidentally shot a red
laser beam which shattered a masked bar patron's drink of bubbling green
liquid, and the auctioneer apologized.
speaking an alien language bought the weapon for 250 Zanabatars.
As the assistant took the cannon behind a curtain
into a back room, guarded by two humanoids in cloaks, the auctioneer
introduced the crown jewel of the auction for which they'd all been
waiting, "the Pink Ranger's
The assistant came out holding the Quasar Saber, followed by two Piranhatrons.
The auctioneer began bidding at 1,000 Zanabatars,
and the crowd clamored to bid, rapidly escalating to 12,000.
Among the crowd were humanoid women, some as mutated as the males.
Sitting at the bar with long black hair, Astronema called out one million, stunning
Stunned by Astronema's presence, the auctioneer composed
his wits and welcomed her, trying to confirm her bet; approaching slyly,
she offered instead that everyone present would get to keep their lives
if she got the Quasar Saber, shocking the
The auctioneer took the Quasar Saber from his stunned assistant and
presented it nervously to Astronema, and she
told him to continue, casually spinning the saber in her hand and in
turn making his trousers drop, revealing boxer shorts with dollar signs
As Astronema prepared
to leave, Trakeena stood with Villamax on the upper balcony as she shouted
down that Astronema had betrayed the
darkness and become good; before revealing the secret, she appeared to
be the only person present who knew that Astronema was now Karone.
Villamax leapt down
and approached Astronema, and two Piranhatron grabbed her as she tried to step
back; knocking the Piranhatron back, she
pinned a guard to the wall with the nearby piano, and then dodged Villamax's sword.
As Astronema dodged
backwards over a railing, her black wig fell off, revealing the long
straight blonde hair of Karone.
When Karone actually
swung back at the attacking Villamax with the
Quasar Saber, Villamax was sent falling into a chair, and she
was surprised by the strength of her blow.
Karone fled the building
as Trakeena ran down the steps after her.
