617-RMVy

  • During a brutal fight with giant Darkonda, the engines were disabled and the Astro Megazord's power was soon completely depleted, making the Megazord collapse and DECA's voice die out; the lights, however, remained on, so some power remained, with some presumably left available to keep Zhane's healing chamber active.

    619-IOBS

  • After their victory against Body Switcher, the Rangers were in the workbay, where they took off their helmets, and the four Rangers went to their lockers while Andros slipped out to check on Zhane in the hidden healing chamber off the engine room.
  • A monitor beside Zhane's cryogenic chamber in the healing chamber displayed a normal heartbeat.

    620-SvSv

  • Zhane was morphed as the Silver Ranger inside the cryogenic tube.
  • Answering the question of who the person was, which Ashley had asked before knowing Andros was there, Andros replied, "His name is Zhane. He's the Silver Ranger," but after a commercial break, his answer would change to, "His name is Zhane. He's my best friend."
  • Andros began to explain his and Zhane's story from two years ago to the teens, recalling, "We were a team. Invincible. Until the day Dark Specter attacked our home planet, KO-35."
  • The villains had been everywhere, relentless, Andros described; in the streets of a city under siege, with rubble and burning cars strewn about, white-striped Piranhatrons had fought KO-35 troopers, as well as Andros and Zhane, morphed as the Red and Silver Rangers.
  • Zhane had told Andros there was just too many of them.
  • When Andros had been knocked down defending some troopers from a monster, the monster had prepared to deliver a final blow to him, but Zhane, having been fighting Piranhatrons, had rushed in and tackled the monster, causing a large explosion.
  • Amidst all the flaming city rubble, morphed Andros had carried the lifeless Silver Ranger over his shoulder between two rows of troopers as civilians walked nearby.
  • Andros had then brought Zhane to the Megaship and frozen him in an attempt to save his life.
  • Andros hoped that the instrument would heal Zhane over time, but he'd already been there two years, and Andros didn't know when or if he would ever wake up, but for now, the machine kept Zhane alive.
  • After electrical malfunctions were occurring throughout the Megaship and the ship had crash-landed, several Kadix beings boarded the Megaship; more beings outside attacked exterior panels, and DECA announced a malfunction in the healing chamber.
  • In the healing chamber, the heart monitor was flashing "Emergency" although the heartbeat was fine.
  • On the cryogenic tube, a drop of condensation rolled down the glass.
  • Moments later, the heart monitor suddenly flatlined, causing morphed Andros, outside, to put his finger to the left side of his head and sense that something was wrong with Zhane.
  • Andros collapsed onto his knees in defeat, thinking Zhane had died; he then got back up and pounded a large group of Kadix beings in a rage.
  • The heart monitor started again, and as more drops rolled down the glass, Zhane's hand stirred.
  • Moments after that, the cryogenic bed opened, and Zhane emerged, chasing the Kadix beings out of the Megaship (sending them flying the last distance out of the space hatch).
  • Zhane then stepped out of the ship, looking at his hands.
  • Andros was shocked to see Zhane was alive.
  • Zhane asked, "Andros?" and then, looking at Lunatick confronting the five Space Rangers, remarked, "This looks like trouble."
  • Lunatick shouted an alien language at Zhane, and Zhane didn't understand it but intended to make him eat his words, summoning the Super Silverizer to fight him.
  • After apparently destroying the monster, Zhane remarked to himself, "Yes," while posing with his back to the explosion, pleased at having been victorious.
  • Inside as the Rangers ran through a corridor, Andros and Zhane stopped to do a friendly gesture of hitting together their alternating forearms (high right arms, high left arms, low right arms), then shaking hands while gripping the handshake with their free hands.
  • Zhane remarked it was just like old times; Andros was quite glad to see him, and Zhane asked, "You didn't think I'd abandon my best friend, did you?"; Andros replied, "Never. Come on!"
  • As the five Rangers flew the Megashuttle to dock with the transforming Megaship, Zhane went to the bridge, still morphed.
  • Seeing an external view of the Astro Megazord flying to Kadix on the viewscreen, Zhane remarked, "Wow, I didn't know we could do this!"
  • Looking at Alpha, Zhane said, "You must be Alpha. Hey."; Andros may have mentioned Alpha before heading off to the shuttle with the others.
  • As the bridge quaked when the Megazord fell into a sinkhole created by giant Lunatick, Zhane asked Alpha if he needed a hand.
  • Later, as the five teens approached the bridge, Zhane was telling Alpha a story about a giant monster grabbing him and lifting him up.
  • Alpha was mesmerized by the story, and Zhane was now helmetless, having short, bleached blond hair.
  • Slipping his Digimorpher out of his belt and clicking it open, Zhane described grabbing the Digimorpher and calling his Silver Cycle.
  • Amused, Andros corrected, "As I recall, I was the one he grabbed and lifted up."
  • In the past, Andros and Zhane had somehow fought giant monsters apparently without having a Megazord at their disposal.
  • Zhane wore no earrings.
  • Smiling, Zhane told Alpha he'd have to finish the story later, and Alpha said he couldn't wait.
  • After hugging Andros, Zhane asked what had happened to him, asking, "How'd we get here?" and Andros explained he'd been in hypersleep for two years, surprising Zhane.
  • Andros introduced his friends, and T.J., Cassie, and Carlos told Zhane their names.
  • Startling forward as though enchanted by Zhane, Ashley stepped forward and extended her hand, introducing herself.
  • Andros explained that the gesture was called "shaking hands" and was a greeting, but Zhane not only said he knew that, but had also almost extended his hand in return before Andros's explanation.
  • Enchanted in return, Zhane remarked that he'd never met a female Power Ranger before, but why he completely ignored Cassie is unknown; he then told Ashley it was nice to meet her and kissed her hand.
  • Zhane's most recent memory was of the attack on KO-35, and Andros took him away happily, having a million things to tell him.

    621-Envy

  • The teens and Zhane were on the Megaship in Earth orbit.
  • Andros was walking down a hallway, trying to think of how to ask Ashley on a date, when he stumbled upon Zhane standing very close to Ashley in the workbay, with his hands on her shoulders behind her as he attempted to teach her telekinesis.
  • Zhane was now unmorphed, wearing a black version of the five teens' gray Megaship uniforms.
  • Zhane lifted up a scanner device with telekinesis and grabbed it, and Ashley giggled and touched his arm, making Andros secretly storm off.
  • When morphed Ashley was knocked down like the others in the fight with Crocotox, Andros rushed to her side to make sure she was all right.
  • When Andros was grabbed and slashed, Ashley joined him in holding back Crocotox while Zhane came in and kicked the monster back, making Ashley remark, "What a gentleman!"
  • Upon involuntarily demorphing from a time limit in his powers, Zhane, hidden from the others' line of sight, ran off.
  • As the Rangers looked for Zhane after Crocotox's destruction, thinking Zhane might have been stunned, the unmorphed Zhane walked out and waved.
  • Carlos warned Zhane not to demorph there, as someone might see him, and Zhane replied, "Oh yeah, sorry."
  • Agreeing with Carlos, Ashley held Zhane's hand with both of hers and told him he had some great moves and asked if he could teach them a few.
  • Just then, Darkonda's image appeared in the sky and told them, "Rangers, you'll be busy forever destroying my army of Crocotox! I have thousands more where that one came from! Soon the Earth will be mine!"
  • As Ashley went to the Synthetron in the workbay after the battle, Andros watched her, thinking.
  • After Ashley had generated a brownie for herself, Andros began to nervously ask Ashley something, and she was smiling, wondering what he was going to say, but as the others left, Zhane came up to them and suspected Darkonda had to have some sort of lab and asked Ashley if she wanted to help him start scanning.
  • Ashley agreed, and Zhane took her brownie, almost walking off.
  • When Ashley asked Andros what he wanted to ask her, Zhane stayed, amused, and messily devoured the whole brownie.
  • Upset, Andros said to forget it and walked off.
  • After the teens believed they'd found Darkonda's lab on the bridge, Zhane walked into the workbay to tell Andros, saying he had a feeling Darkonda wasn't just bragging, but Andros, working on an open box setup with a glowing rod device, hurt himself slightly and then glared at Zhane angrily.
  • Zhane went on, saying Darkonda might have more of the monsters, maybe even a whole hatchery.
  • When Andros couldn't find something in his locker, Zhane volunteered a part on the table where Andros had been, and he took it, saying, "Thanks for nothing."
  • When Zhane asked, "Excuse me?", Andros asked what he thought he'd been doing with Ashley; Zhane asked, "With Ashley?" Andros went on that he'd seen them together and that they'd looked pretty chummy, then said, "You don't waste any time, do you?"
  • Smiling, Zhane explained they were just friends, and that he knew Andros liked her and he wouldn't step on his toes.
  • Andros started to walk off, still upset, but Zhane grabbed his sleeve and said he couldn't be serious, as they were best friends; leaving, Andros said that nowadays he wondered.
  • As Andros and Zhane came onto the bridge, the others told Andros they thought they knew where Darkonda's lab was, as DECA had located it on the planet Dekata 5.
  • As the teens prepared to leave, Ashley cheerfully told Zhane to come on, but Andros said they'd handle this.
  • Carlos pointed out they could use all the help they could get against Darkonda, but Andros forcefully stated Zhane stayed; as the others began to leave with confusion, Zhane lied that he wasn't feeling so hot.
  • Lingering, Ashley asked if he'd be okay, and he said he would; she touched his arm before leaving.
  • Alpha told Zhane not to worry about it and offered him a cup of milk.
  • Sitting on the bridge, Zhane remembered himself and Andros walking through a field in their Megaship uniforms, laughing together.
  • Andros had said, "I'm talking forever! No kidding! Really!" and Zhane had replied, "Why not? You and I will prove it!"
  • In another flashback, they were standing before each other in probably the same area; Andros said they'd vow to fight as a team forever, and they both agreed as they bumped their left forearms high, right forearms low, and then shook hands; this happy alliance had to have occurred prior to Dark Specter's invasion two years ago.
  • Zhane then recalled the battle on KO-35: Zhane had called for Andros to look out, at which point the monster had slashed Andros back; as the monster had prepared a finishing blow, Zhane had shouted, "No!" and rushed in to take the hit.
  • Zhane had then slashed the monster back and bear-hugged him; as the two were falling, Zhane had called out, "Andros, run!!" and they had both been engulfed in an explosion as they'd hit the ground.
  • Chuckling at the ridiculousness of the situation, Zhane said Andros was his best friend and got up to go help the Rangers, making Alpha chuckle, "That's the spirit!"
  • Zhane teleported unmorphed down to a beach on Dekata 5, where Alpha called him over the Digimorpher, and Zhane had him scan for the others.
  • Suddenly, Ecliptor confronted Zhane, laughing, "The legendary Silver Ranger lives."
  • Zhane dodged twice, then tried to counter but was beaten into submission and grabbed by the jacket; Ecliptor then threw him back into the sand.
  • Popping open his Digimorpher, Zhane remarked he'd better not risk using up all his powers, and he didn't morph as Ecliptor kept coming.
  • Soon, Ecliptor hurled Zhane onto the sand again and told him he was nothing without his friends to help him, at which point Zhane heard Andros grunting and suddenly looked into the sky and briefly saw a translucent image of the Rangers trapped in a net in Darkonda's lab, with Andros saying they had to find Zhane.
  • Ecliptor said Zhane's destruction would make him a legend.
  • Zhane dodged Ecliptor's two sword swings, then kicked Ecliptor in the stomach to buy himself time to morph.
  • Overpowered and pinned on the ground, morphed Zhane called for the Silver Cycle, which struck Ecliptor and sent him flying off a cliff.
  • Zhane, pleased that his morph was still holding, touched both hands' fingertips to his forehead and then announced it was time to help the others, then flew off on his Silver Cycle glider.
  • Soon, as Zhane sped into Darkonda's facility riding his Silver Cycle, he raced past the blue Crocotox's energy barrier, and T.J. called out to tell Zhane to find Darkonda's lab, and Zhane said he was picking up a signal.
  • After turning around a corner, Zhane rammed through a Crocotox in his way and then blasted through a wall, smashing into Darkonda's lab and blasting everything in sight.
  • Minutes later, after involuntarily demorphing immediately after destroying the red Crocotox outside, Zhane, upset, remarked, "Not again," and looked up, perhaps at the Astro Delta Megazord.
  • Later on the bridge with Zhane, Andros apologized and said he thought he'd overreacted; Zhane, stonefaced, said he'd definitely overreacted, but when Andros extended his hand, Zhane smiled and shook it, saying he forgave him.
  • Before going, Zhane told him that the times he'd been with Ashley, she'd spent most of the time asking about Andros.
  • As Andros asked what kind of questions, Ashley walked in and exchanged parting glances with Zhane as Zhane was leaving.
  • Then, on Megadeck 6, Zhane looked around secretively before going into the closed-off engine room, where he'd had Alpha waiting to talk with him.
  • Zhane asked if Alpha could keep a secret, then admitted there was something wrong with his morphing powers and that he needed Alpha's help.

    622-SvSc

  • Another day, presumably the next day, Zhane was lying on the med table in the infirmary, wearing his uniform but with a gray tank top rather than his jacket and silver turtleneck as Alpha took an electrode off his temple.
  • Looking at a panel device and the readout on the kiosk by the wall, Alpha found that it was serious; when Zhane pressed for more information, Alpha said he didn't have much time: after two and a half minutes, Alpha said, Zhane would demorph every time.
  • Zhane said he had to find a way to restore his full morphing powers.
  • Andros and Cassie prepared to tell the others the really bad news on the bridge when Zhane came in from the lift with a panel device; he was confused by their concern.
  • Andros told Zhane he'd been working too hard, but Zhane replied hard work wasn't going to kill him.
  • Between tapping at his panel device, Zhane looked at the "Computer Systems" console, then the display panel for the front center seat.
  • Confusing Zhane, Andros had Zhane sit, and Cassie put his feet up, with Andros taking the panel device.
  • When DECA announced the Praying Mantis's attack on Earth, the teens began to rush out; when Zhane started to get up, Andros and Cassie made him sit, with Cassie telling him just to take it easy.
  • Shortly after the Rangers had left, Zhane nervously tapped his fingers on the controls in front of him and grabbed an apple that was lying there on the controls.
  • Zhane wondered how the others were doing without him, then, as he was about to bite the apple, had DECA bring up the fight on the viewscreen.
  • Zhane had green or brown eyes.
  • Concerned upon seeing the monster striking the Rangers with a flying blade, Zhane rushed out toward the workbay to help.
  • After ramming Praying Mantis on his Silver Cycle, Zhane got off his parked cycle and soon wielded his Silverizer against the monster despite Andros and Cassie's intentions for him to stay behind them.
  • After Zhane had been blasted, Andros wanted Zhane to stay behind while they handled it, but Zhane went forward alone, saying he could handle it.
  • As Zhane did a final slash with his Silverizer after blasting Praying Mantis, he was apparently slashed back, stunning him, and Cassie and Andros had him take it easy.
  • As the Rangers took over, Zhane noticed patches of demorphed areas fading in and out on his suit, and he ran off so he wouldn't demorph in public.
  • After Praying Mantis had retreated, the Rangers looked around and called out for Zhane, and he cheerfully trotted up unmorphed.
  • Zhane said he was fine, asking why he wouldn't be, and as he put his arm around Ashley and T.J. patted him on the back, Andros told Cassie they had to tell the others about Zhane's condition, thinking he was dying.
  • Later in the workbay, the five teens ate a meal at the table, having been called there by Andros there to talk, and Andros and Cassie told the teens the shocking news.
  • Walking from the bridge to a doorway across the hall, Zhane heard the conversation as Cassie noted Zhane had been demorphing as soon as the fight was over, and Carlos assumed he was too weak.
  • Grinning devilishly, Zhane remarked to himself, "So that's why Cassie and Andros are acting so freaky. (chuckles and rubs hands) They think I'm dying!"
  • Ashley remarked, startled, that Zhane was acting so brave, and as Carlos wondered what they could do, Zhane walked in, curious, and they quickly catered to him.
  • When Cassie asked how he was, Zhane cleared his throat and guessed he was fine.
  • T.J. gave Zhane his seat, Cassie poured Zhane some juice, and Carlos offered him some of his spinach from a silver plate, but Zhane said he hated spinach.
  • When Zhane asked for some pie, Ashley put a piece on a plate for him, but Cassie argued with her that it wasn't good for him, with Ashley arguing that that's what he wanted; meanwhile, Zhane watched with amusement.
  • Later back in the infirmary, Alpha found that Zhane's morphing energy had slowly been drained during his hypersleep, and he now needed a concentrated dose of high-voltage electricity to restore it.
  • Other that that, Alpha, said, he was perfectly healthy; grinning, Zhane beckoned Alpha closer to tell him a secret, and when he said the others thought he was dying, Alpha was shocked, saying he had to tell them the truth, but Zhane didn't think so.
  • When the teens found that Praying Mantis was attacking again, DECA volunteered to alert Zhane, but the teens adamantly told her not to, since he needed to rest.
  • The teens ran into Zhane in the hallway and told him they were going down for only a minor disturbance on Earth.
  • As the five teens prepared to take the jump tubes, Zhane offered to go with them, but Andros told him to stay and take it easy; Zhane tried to tell them the truth, but they rushed off down the tubes.
  • Returning to the bridge and watching the ensuing battle on the viewscreen, Zhane was frustrated, asking, "What good is the Silver Ranger if he can't even morph?"
  • Suddenly inspired, Zhane had DECA bring up a global weather map, and he looked at a spectrographic worldmap on a monitor, planning to find a lightning storm.
  • Alpha firmly told Zhane it was too dangerous, but Zhane said it was his only chance.
  • When the map zoomed in on California, Zhane pinpointed a red storm cluster in southeastern California and ran off to go to it despite Alpha's yells otherwise.
  • After climbing a mountain where a violent thunderstorm was directly overhead, Zhane held up his Digimorpher, which was then struck by numerous successive lightning bolts, recharging his powers.
  • Morphed Zhane appeared to be blown up in the fight against Praying Mantis, horrifying the Rangers, but he soon flew in on his silver glider, unharmed.
  • Some time after the monster's destruction, the teens, with Alpha in the workbay, were upset that Zhane had lied to them.
  • When Zhane came in, the teens pretended to pamper him, and Cassie gave him some juice which he spat out because it was spinach juice, given to him since he was so sick.
  • Zhane realized they'd caught on and said it was just a joke and that he'd been planning to tell them eventually.
  • When Zhane admitted he'd never felt better, Andros gave him the cleaning supplies to clean the Megaship top to bottom.

    623-Date

  • As the five Rangers were fighting Horror Bull in a plaza downtown one morning, Astronema (in her gear) watched with Quantrons from around a corner.
  • Morphed Zhane sped through the crowd of Quantrons on his Silver Cycle, making the angry Astronema dodge.
  • With a smirk, Astronema summoned from orange energy the Destructoid monster, which knocked Zhane off his bike.
  • After fighting the monster well, Zhane asked Astronema if that was all she had, saying he'd expected more from her this time; angry, she blasted at him with her staff repeatedly.
  • As Zhane flipped aside, one of Astronema's blasts struck Destructoid, making him howl in pain, and Zhane clapped, congratulating Astronema.
  • Destructoid growled at Astronema and attacked her and the Quantrons around her, saying no one did that to him; meanwhile, Zhane was amused as she cowered from the monster, and he asked how she liked it.
  • When Destructoid attacked Astronema, she tried to block with her staff, but he threw her aside, apparently knocking her out; alarmed, Zhane leapt onto his silver glider and snatched Astronema from the monster's clutches, flying off with her.
  • In what looked like a jungle somewhere, Astronema was lying on the ground with something rolled up as a pillow when she came to and looked around in surprise.
  • Astronema warily watched from the bushes as a helmetless Zhane cooked something in a pot at a campfire.
  • Astronema saw her staff leaning against a tree nearby and looked at it slightly evilly, but when Zhane turned to bring her what he'd been cooking, she lay back down and pretended to be sleeping again.
  • Zhane came up to Astronema with a steaming metal mug and a cloth he'd wet at the stream nearby.
  • As Zhane touched the cloth to her forehead, Astronema startled and sat up; she asked incredulously what he was doing, and, concerned, he told her to try this, as it was good for her.
  • Begrudgingly trusting toward him, Astronema took a sip but then was disgusted by it; Zhane took it back, saying he wasn't the best cook in the world, then sipped it by the fire and decided it definitely needed more salt.
  • As Zhane sprinkled some more salt from a plastic box dispenser into the pot over the fire, Astronema sneaked up behind him with her staff aimed at him.
  • Astronema curiously told him, "I could destroy you right now. You know that, don't you?" and as he stood and looked at her and the staff, he replied, "You could, but I don't think you will," at which point he stuck a marshmallow on the end of her staff, telling her to try it.
  • Astronema looked at the marshmallow in confusion, and Zhane took the staff to show her something; she asked what he thought he was doing but didn't resist.
  • Zhane proceeded to toast the marshmallow in the fire with the staff, and she then took the staff back and eyed him curiously.
  • Zhane told Astronema it was called "toasting marshmallows" and told her to try it; looking at him, almost curiously amused, she delicately removed the marshmallow and, entertained, took a nibble, looking at Zhane demurely.
  • As Zhane smiled and asked if she thought it was good, she suddenly looked at him and lost her smile, pointing her staff at him and backing away.
  • Astronema sternly told him not to think she owed him anything, as they were enemies now and forever; before vanishing, however, she smiled softly and thanked him for saving her.
  • Zhane called out for Astronema to wait, but she was gone.
  • Later in the day, Zhane was lying in bed in his quarters, looking at a photograph of Astronema (probably a 5"x7"); the photo showed a distrustful Astronema in a wooded area with her battle gear, staff, and her current hairstyle; how Zhane had obtained this photo is unknown.
  • When Cassie and Ashley rushed in, Zhane hid the picture, and when they asked him to come to the movies with them, he thought he would just hang out in his room, but they dragged him along anyway.
  • Later, Astronema was lying on her bed looking at a photo (again, probably 5"x7") of morphed Zhane holding his helmet and smiling in front of a black background; how she'd obtained this photo is also unknown.
  • As the six teens left the movie theater, Zhane hung behind the others, deep in thought; he stopped to dreamily look at the poster for Star Crossed Lovers and imagined himself and Astronema in place of the main characters, embracing to kiss.
  • In casual clothes along with the others, Zhane was wearing a gray shirt and a watch in place of a communicator.
  • As Zhane turned to walk away, he collided with Astronema in teenager form (henceforth referred to as Karone), causing her to drop her books all over the sidewalk.
  • Zhane apologized and helped her pick up her books.
  • Shyly picking up her books as well, she said she was so clumsy, and he said it was totally his fault.
  • The two bumped heads while picking up the books.
  • Looking at her, Zhane was in awe, and when she asked, "What?" he said he'd thought he was someone else.
  • Smiling and awestruck after helping her up, Zhane said he had to catch up with his friends and said "see you," then trotted off, accidentally leaving behind his folded photo of Astronema which she was delighted to find.
  • As Zhane joined the teens, purple energy bolts from behind struck nearby, sending people running and the teens ducking behind things.
  • While everyone was distracted, a red arrow with a note on it shot into the tree Zhane was hiding behind.
  • On a pink piece of paper bordered with hearts and fern leaves was the note: "Meet me by the campfire at five o'clock. - Astronema," with a bright red lipstick kiss on it and a new photo of herself attached; in the photo, she was now smiling over her shoulder, not wearing her battle gear.
  • After reading the note, Zhane gasped and looked at his watch.
  • A bit before five, Zhane frantically ran into his Megaship quarters in civilian clothes, carrying a bouquet of roses and many shopping bags of clothes; while getting ready for his date, he casually tossed his Digimorpher onto a chair and then covered it with a shirt.
  • Soon, as Zhane happily strutted down the hall toward the workbay with the bouquet and wearing a silver shirt, Zhane hid when he heard Alpha in the bridge fretting over the Rangers' situation.
  • Alpha found Zhane sneaking by, having been trying to reach him, and had the put-out Zhane look at the situation, dragging him into the bridge.
  • After seeing Horror Bull flipping and fighting the Rangers as Alpha told him the others needed him, Zhane looked at his watch and asked if Alpha was sure, making Alpha whine in protest, "Zhaaaane!"
  • Finally padding himself down, Zhane found no Digimorpher and went back to his room to search for it; clothes were strewn everywhere, but he finally remembered it was under the pile on the chair, and he morphed.
  • After racing in on his Silver Cycle and striking Ecliptor and Horror Bull in passing, Zhane helped the others as they got up, but T.J. fell back down, and as Zhane helped him up again, he remarked that they were worse off than he'd thought.
  • After Ecliptor had retreated and Horror Bull had grown after being defeated by Zhane, Zhane hopped onto his Silver Cycle and told the others he had to go, then raced off between the giant monster's legs.
  • Forlorn, Astronema was later sitting and fidgeting with the ground when morphed Zhane rode up on his Silver Cycle.
  • Zhane waved "hey," and Astronema stood up with a wicked smirk; when he leapt off the bike and demorphed with the bouquet, she amusedly blasted the roses with a purple energy bolt from her finger, as well as more around him, and she chuckled girlishly as he stood back up, completely fried and covered with mud.
  • Zhane protested that those had been long-stem roses, and Astronema shouted, "Nobody stands me up, buddy!!"; she turned as though to leave from disgust, but as he told her he hadn't stood her up, she paced and grumbled that he was late.
  • Zhane argued that he wouldn't have been late if she hadn't sent any monsters, but with exasperation, she yelled that she hadn't sent any monsters and blasted at him again.
  • The reader will note that Zhane had been willing to date Astronema despite thinking she'd purposely sent Horror Bull to fight them.
  • Zhane asked if they could talk about this, but, hurt, Astronema said there was nothing to talk about and that she never wanted to see him again, and she teleported away as Zhane was crushed.
  • Later on the bridge, the teens argued privately about which was to go and talk to the depressed Zhane, who sat in uniform, despondent at a center seat.
  • Ashley was shoved forward, and she awkwardly asked Zhane if he was okay, but he didn't reply.
  • Andros, shoved forward next, agreed that Zhane looked a little bummed, but he still didn't answer.
  • Cassie, shoved next, smoothly told him, "You can talk to us about ANNNything," but he merely looked at her and quietly said "thank you" before walking out.

    624-ZhnD

  • On the desert planet Centaur B, Zhane and Andros were in brown cloaks in a fierce sandstorm wearing facemasks, with Zhane using a scanner to lead them to the first of several energy sources the teens had detected.
  • Some time later, Andros told Alpha they'd lost contact with the others, but Alpha said the atmosphere was too dense for the ship's scanners, so Zhane had them keep heading for the second energy source, which was where the others had been heading before they'd lost contact.
  • Later, the four teens were chained up in front of an angry mob who all wanted their destruction, incited by the general Yatru into thinking they were spies.
  • Yatru ordered for them to be taken to the surface and destroyed, but the cloaked and masked Zhane and Andros stormed in and ordered them to be released; Yatru said they were more spies and told the guards to capture them, but the two pulled Astro Blasters and aimed them at the guards.
  • Andros declared that they weren't spies, and nor were the four teens; he and Zhane then removed their masks as he declared they were Power Rangers, stunning the crowd.
  • Taikwa knew Andros and Zhane, and Andros was surprised to see her there; she explained that they had been in hiding since escaping from KO-35.
  • Yatru insisted that the teens were spies and ordered for them to be destroyed, but Andros and Zhane again aimed their Astro Blasters at the guards; the guards were confused and reluctant to act, so Andros had them lower their Astro Blasters.
  • Frustrated, Yatru said he'd destroy them himself if he had to, and Coralizer stormed in; as chaos ensued, Yatru fled the scene, but Zhane chased him through the tunnels of the compound.
  • After morphing, Zhane tackled Yatru, but the general fought back fiercely.
  • After getting a bit of a pounding, Zhane summoned the Super Silverizer and delivered a slash to Yatru's chest as the general charged, and he then morphed into Darkonda.
  • Soon, Darkonda was pounding morphed Zhane, and he knocked the Silverizer from Zhane's arm and then slashed him back.
  • Kinwon threw Zhane his Silverizer, calling out his name, and Zhane slashed Darkonda in the stomach, causing him to reel back and explode after declaring that he'd be back.
  • Morphed Zhane thanked Kinwon, telling him he'd saved his life, and Kinwon hugged him.
  • Soon, Zhane had decided to stay to help the Rebels, as they were building weapons to defend themselves against Dark Specter.
  • Ashley sweetly kissed Zhane on the cheek, and the teens all said goodbye, with Andros hugging Zhane.
  • Zhane planned to be back someday when they least suspected it.

    630-DSR2

  • As the Rangers used the Astro Megazord, Delta Megazord, and Mega Voyager to attempt to push Dark Specter's giant asteroid off-course from Earth, Andros said they just needed a little more power, at which point the new Mega Winger flew in piloted by Zhane and added the needed extra power.
  • Zhane said he was back, saying he'd known they'd miss him eventually; he then said, "Now let's take care of this," probably having already known about the asteroid.
  • After the Megazords had changed the asteroid's course, the teens were on the bridge of the Megaship when Zhane entered from the workbay.
  • The teens were happy to see Zhane.
  • Zhane explained that the Rebels had built the Mega Winger and that it was awesome.
  • DECA announced that the Dark Fortress had been located in quadrant 446.7 behind the planet Vraden; Andros asked DECA to pinpoint Karone, and Zhane was surprised he'd found his sister.
  • As Andros worked at the "Operations & Safety" console, Ashley pulled Zhane aside and told him they'd found out Astronema was Karone and that Darkonda had kidnapped her; T.J. said she'd defected to their side but that something had happened when she'd gone to the Dark Fortress to reprogram the asteroid.
  • Zhane exclaimed that he'd known there was something good about Astronema.
  • As Andros prepared to head out, Zhane joined him, saying he had an interest in her too, confusing Andros.
  • Morphed, Andros and Zhane flew through space on their gliders and caught up with a Velocifighter, then surreptitiously leapt onto its back for it to take them to the Dark Fortress.
  • After the Velocifighter had landed in the Dark Fortress's cargo bay, Andros and Zhane sneaked off without being seen, then demorphed behind some crates and kept going.
  • As they went, Andros asked Zhane, "You went out on a date with my sister?" but Zhane explained he hadn't known it was his sister, and it hadn't even really been a date.
  • As they sneaked elsewhere, Andros tapped Zhane on the shoulder and asked, "Just one date?"; Zhane replied that it really hadn't been anything.
  • Andros and Zhane soon tackled two patrolling Quantrons and then emerged wearing their complete suits.
  • Looking for Quantrons, Elgar spoke to the disguised Andros and Zhane, telling them to keep their eyes open for Power Rangers.
  • Passing two more Quantrons, Andros and Zhane entered the control room and found Astronema sitting in her strategy seat in her quarters.
  • As they removed their helmets, Andros talked to Karone, but she didn't respond; instead, she turned to them blankly with circuitry along the right side of her face, and her suit had been modified for a more mechanical look; she still wore her locket.
  • Astronema's face was pale, and with a calm, evil smirk, she told Ecliptor to get them.
  • As Zhane struggled with Ecliptor, Andros told Karone he was her brother, but she blankly replied that she was Astronema.
  • After throwing off all his Quantron armor in a burst to fight other Quantrons, Zhane convinced Andros that they had to go, as Astronema had been brainwashed, and Andros angrily threw off his armor and left with Zhane while Astronema watched unmoved.
  • Fighting off many Quantrons in the warehouse area outside, Andros and Zhane morphed, then hijacked two Velocifighters for their escape, probably Zhane's idea.
  • Later, while the Mega Voyager fought giant Frightwing, Zhane flew Mega Winger down from the Ganymede base to help, then soon transferred its wings to form the Winged Mega Voyager.
  • Later on the bridge with Zhane and Alpha, Andros looked at a display of the circuitry on Karone's head as DECA told him Karone's emotions had been overridden by computer programming; Karone was still inside Astronema, but she was no longer in control, and Andros swore to get her back somehow.

    631-RGPs

  • Zhane wasn't with the Rangers to fight the owl monster one evening, and he didn't initially go with them to the Surf Spot the next day or to the Warehouse District to confront the Psycho Rangers impersonating the Space Rangers.
  • Just as the Psycho Rangers were draining knowledge from the Rangers after pummeling them, Zhane arrived from his cyber-tunnel and crashed in on the Silver Cycle, and the Psychos vanished after being blasted by the cycle's headlights.
  • As Zhane helped the Rangers up, Andros told Zhane it was fortunate for them that he hadn't been far away.
  • From the Megaship soon afterward, T.J. called Zhane; in civilian clothes at a market downtown, Zhane was scanning with an AmScanner before answering his Digimorpher.
  • Zhane secretively ran to an empty area nearby before answering, yet his Digimorpher looked like a normal cell phone; thus, his hiding was probably far more conspicious than it would have been for him to merely answer the phone.
  • Immediately after hanging up, Zhane was attacked by Psycho Blue and Psycho Black; he would later regain consciousness tied to a chair in a cobweb-filled room of the old library, then soon shatter a clay container and use a shard to saw through his ropes.
  • After the Psychos had fried the Rangers but had then been warped away, Zhane rushed over to help the collapsed Rangers.

    632-COnC

  • Zhane was now absent, but the Mega Voyager did use Mega Winger's wings.

    633-Rift

  • Zhane was again absent from the Megaship and would remain absent during Ashley's kidnapping and the Rangers' fight with Psycho Pink.
  • As giant Psycho Pink, in monster form, was stomping on the Mega Voyager, Zhane flew down blasting with Mega Winger, telling the teens they could always count on him if they were down.
  • Psycho Pink's vines grabbed the Wing Blaster from Mega Winger, and she blasted the Zord with its own weapon, embarrassing Zhane.
  • When Cassie suggested they use the Mega V-3 Missile Mode, Zhane had them wait until Psycho Pink was distracted by grappling Mega Winger in her tentacles.
  • Zhane wasn't with the teens on the Megaship after Psycho Pink's destruction.

    634-FOAK

  • Despite not being with the teens during their strategizing on the Megaship, Zhane rode up on the Silver Cycle while the Rangers fought the four Psychos in the plaza downtown; he told the Psychos that if they were messing with his friends, they were messing with him.
  • After Zhane was frustrated by the Psychos' continuing to pound the Rangers after he'd asked who was first, he saw Cassie thrown back by Psycho Yellow, and he rushed to help her; she told him they could use his help.
  • After T.J. had lost consciousness from injury after the Psycho Rangers had been warped away, the teens and Zhane were beside T.J. in the infirmary when he awoke.
  • T.J., upset that his plan hadn't worked, started to get up, but the others made him stay, and Andros said they were working on a new plan.
  • Inspired some time later, T.J. rushed to the bridge with Cassie; Andros and Ashley were already there, and Carlos and Zhane entered together from the Megalift, having been called there.
  • As the teens and Zhane watched, T.J. spraypainted all five Ranger figures on the strategy table blue, pleasing all of them as they understood T.J.'s plan.
  • On Earth after T.J. had blasted the three Psychos with his Astro Blaster while Psycho Blue was confused by the five Blue Rangers, blue lightning bolts suddenly rained down from above, confusing and weakening the Rangers; the three Psychos, meanwhile, appeared dazed.
  • A silver Psycho Ranger, Psycho Silver, walked up, alarming the three Psycho Rangers; as T.J. was alarmed as well, asking who it was, Psycho Silver replied in a distorted Zhane voice, "Guess."
  • Considering that Zhane had known of T.J.'s plan, that the plan had been working, that Zhane hadn't told the Rangers of his own plan, and that Zhane's plan wouldn't succeed, whatever it was he was hoping to accomplish, it's quite unknown what on Earth Zhane could have been thinking.
  • After posing, Psycho Silver said, "I'm the Silver Psycho Ranger, and I'm here to destroy the Power Rangers once and for all!"; the Rangers all appeared apprehensive, but Psycho Black told him to dream on, as the Rangers were theirs.
  • Psycho Silver pulled out a sleek, evil version of the Super Silverizer bearing the Psychos' N insignia and told the Psychos while approaching the Rangers that they had no idea who they were dealing with, boldly insisting that the Rangers were his.
  • Psycho Silver leapt in and slashed all of the Rangers, appearing to cause them actual harm.
  • As Psycho Silver defeated the Rangers, the Psychos were angered rather than intimidated, but as Psycho Red and Psycho Black approached the stranger, Psycho Blue blasted them both and told them he'd handle Psycho Silver alone; they warped away with disgust.
  • Psycho Blue held out his hand, making painful mist blow up around Psycho Silver; he then prepared to attack the one Blue Ranger left standing, but morphed T.J., from elsewhere, leapt off Psycho Silver's shoulders and slashed Psycho Blue's left eye with the Astro Axe, cracking it.
  • As Psycho Silver stood with the Rangers, the four impostor blue suits shattered away.
  • Zhane removed his helmet triumphantly as Psycho Blue was stunned, then, after being blasted at, clicked open his Digimorpher and morphed into Silver Ranger.
  • After the Winged Mega Voyager had destroyed giant Psycho-monster Blue, Andros congratulated Zhane on the assist, jokingly calling him "Psycho Zhane."
  • On the Megaship, Andros told Zhane in a corridor that since the Mega Voyager's circuits had been overloaded, he wanted to make sure the Megaship was ready if they wanted to form the Astro Megazord, and Zhane agreed, "You got it," walking off as Andros took the lift to the bridge.

    635-SiGo

  • After the four teens had located Cassie at the mall from the Megaship while the Psycho teens were hunting her down using her voice, Zhane interrupted in a clown suit with balloons as the Psycho teens were surrounding Cassie in a secluded area; he winked to Cassie over his oversized glasses.
  • After Zhane had pranced away around a corner, the three refusing his offers of candy and such, Zhane's and Cassie's voices, around the corner, talked about fooling the Psycho Rangers.
  • Hearing Pink Ranger, the Psycho teens rounded the corner to find Zhane's discarded clown items; from elsewhere, Zhane called out for them to catch them if they could, and as the Psychos pursued him, morphed Zhane was racing away on the Silver Cycle with a boombox strapped to his back.
  • After the six Rangers had defeated the Psychos but caused them to grow to giant size in their monster forms, the five Rangers had summoned Mega Voyager.
  • While Psycho Black pounded the grappled Mega Voyager, Zhane flew down in Mega Winger blasting Psycho Black, and the Delta Megazord also flew down to help.
  • After the Mega Voyager had been stolen once the five Rangers had ejected, the teens and Zhane went to the Megaship bridge to scan for the stolen Megazord.

    636-EnWi

  • Suddenly, the computer pinpointed the Mega Vehicles, and Andros, looking at the display, said it was a planet in the M94 galaxy.
  • Zhane stood in the teens' path, suspecting the easy discovery was a trap, so he planned to go after the V-Zords as a distraction while the others took another way in.
  • As Andros walked down the hallway of the Megaship with an apple as the teens unwound after destroying the Psycho Rangers, he was confronted by Psycho Red (who snatched the apple from him), but after being pounded, Zhane removed the helmet of his Psycho Red costume, having been joking around; to get back at him, Andros flipped Zhane onto the floor.
  • The origin of Zhane's Psycho Red costume, much like the Psycho Silver suit he'd worn in 634-FOAK, is unknown, though the Simudeck might be a possibility.

    639-Ghst

  • While the Rangers fought the resurrected Psycho Rangers in Secret City, Andros told Alpha to get ahold of Zhane and tell him to go after the data cards in the control room.
  • Zhane, not having appeared since 636-EnWi, ran up to Secret City's main tower in civilian clothes.
  • When Ecliptor confronted him outside the tower, Zhane morphed and quickly defeated him with the Silverizer .
  • In the Data Laser's control room, Zhane opened a file cabinet drawer which contained hundreds of data cards all lined up; quickly figuring out the computer, he proceeded to restore everyone after his first three test subjects, which turned out to be Bulk, Skull, and Professor Phenomenus.
  • Once the last of the people had been teleported home, the Rangers led the Psychos into the room, and Zhane attempted to maneuver the laser over the Psychos during the fight in the test room.
  • Watching the blue and red dots dance around the monitoring screen on the controls, Zhane remarked, "I knew all those years of playing video games would pay off one day!"
  • Zhane told Andros to get them all to the center, and after much struggling, the Rangers finally pushed them all together into the center, at which point Zhane scanned them up.
  • Suddenly, the ground rumbled, and T.J. assumed the Psychos had overloaded the system; as the controls went haywire and the five Rangers ran out, an explosion knocked the Psychos' data cards from Zhane's hand.
  • White beams began spraying out from the Data Laser, and the tower then exploded, taking Secret City with it; there was a large explosion of water in the ocean, and the five unmorphed teens collapsed onto the sand at a rocky beach.
  • The teens called out for Zhane, and he came up to them, having been unsuccessful at getting back the data cards.

    640-IWeb

  • Probably months later, the powerless teens were captured by Darkonda's army of Quantrons on the desert planet Forza while the Megaship was trapped in the Dark Fortress's energy web.
  • As Darkonda ordered the teens to be destroyed, a massive explosion flung Quantrons about; as a vehicle drove up in the distance, the teens didn't know who it was, but as soon as morphed Zhane called out from the new Galactic Rover to ask if they needed any help, Cassie suddenly realized it was Zhane.
  • Darkonda charged at Zhane, and he raced at Darkonda; after giving him one last chance, Zhane drove right through Darkonda, destroying him.
  • Zhane introduced the teens to the Galactic Rover.
  • Told by Alpha that Ecliptor had discovered Mega Voyager's location and was going there to destroy it, Andros told Zhane he had to stop him, and Zhane hopped back into the Rover, then flew his silver glider to Ganymede.
  • Inside and then outside the moonbase, Zhane fought the red-colored, superpowered Ecliptor clumsily with the Super Silverizer ; outside, Ecliptor was impervious to the Silverizer slashes and blasts.
  • Ecliptor grew to giant size, making Zhane asked if he didn't think it was a little unfair.
  • As the Mega Winger was being pounded, the Rangers arrived with the Astro and Delta Megazords.
  • Shortly after Ecliptor and the Astro Megazord had left, the damaged Mega Winger sparked and collapsed amongst the ruined moonbase interior, with Zhane replying to Andros's call for help by saying that he was down himself.
  • Later, unmorphed Cassie, T.J., and Zhane surveyed the absolute destruction inside the moonbase.
  • Zhane found a console that was still working, and Cassie said it was from the main computer bank.
  • Zhane gave the teens on the Megaship the good news that the power systems were intact and that they'd have it fixed in no time.

    641-LITS

  • As the five Rangers, abducted to a desert wasteland perhaps on another planet and unable to contact the Megaship, tried desperately to fight the seemingly indestructible Tankenstein, Zhane suddenly raced in driving the Galactic Rover.
  • The Rover eventually destroyed Tankenstein, but it was reassembled and enlarged by the Satellasers.
  • When giant Tankenstein self-destructed high above the ground holding the Mega Voyager, pieces of the Megazord rained down on the desert; the five unmorphed and blackened teens soon got out from the wreckage, relatively unhurt.
  • Zhane drove up in the Galactic Rover, removed his helmet, and asked if the teens were okay.

    642-CTD1

  • As Cogs, Quadrafighters, and perhaps Piranhatrons (with the Piranhatrons only shown in a preview for this episode) attacked KO-35, Taikwa entered a large command tent and told Kinwon that the villains had penetrated the outer barrier and that the inner defenses were already being pushed back; she handed him some documents.
  • Other generals were with Kinwon, as was Zhane, in his Megaship uniform.
  • Kinwon said they couldn't resist Astronema's attacks much longer and needed reinforcements, so Zhane left, planning to return with the other Rangers.
  • As morphed Zhane flew through space on his silver glider, he was shot at by Velocifighters, but the Megaship destroyed them.
  • Walking toward the bridge with Andros, Zhane told him that the Rebels were under attack and needed help, but Andros explained that villains were invading all over, listing Dark Specter, Astronema, Divatox, and Rita and Zedd.
  • Learning of the various invasions taking place, Zhane was surprised to realize the villains were trying to conquer the whole universe, and Andros agreed with the sentiment.
  • As the Megaship blasted at hundreds of Velocifighters still in Earth orbit, Zhane volunteered to stay on the Megaship, and the others flew down to Angel Grove.
  • Soon, Zhane flew the Megaship into the atmosphere under fire while large amounts of steam were pouring out of the engine room; he suddenly took the Megalift to Megadeck 6 and declared while rushing out near the engine room that he needed the Mega Winger.

    643-CTD2

  • That night in the ravaged Angel Grove, unmorphed Zhane stumbled up to the teens' campfire in civilian clothes, telling them he'd survived but the Mega Winger hadn't.
  • When asked, Zhane told them the Rebels had surrendered.
  • As Andros hoped to go to the Dark Fortress to get through to his sister, Zhane told Andros to face that there was no more Karone, but Andros refused to believe that.
  • The next morning as Astronema, frustrated by the Rangers' remaining in hiding, prepared to let the destruction of Earth begin, the four teens and Zhane trotted up and watched worriedly from behind a wrecked bus.
  • When people, initiated by Bulk, began stepping forward and declaring that they were Power Rangers, the teens were awed; angry, Astronema ordered for them all to be destroyed, and as her forces closed in, she and Ecliptor blasted into the crowd, causing chaos to erupt below.
  • Suddenly, the teens and Zhane called out from atop a stone wall, and T.J. declared that they were the Power Rangers, awing the crowd into silence.
  • In front of the crowd, the teens morphed and began fighting Astronema's troops, aided by the crowd after Bulk and Skull had rallied to help them.
  • After the energy wave from Zordon's destruction had dissolved the villains and demorphed the Rangers, the people cheered, and everyone hugged and congratulated the teens and Zhane, with Skull giving Cassie an enormous hug from behind.
  • The teens soon wandered through the crowd, giving high fives, but were otherwise left alone; they seemed a bit shaken up despite being happy about the victory.
  • Probably another day on KO-35, the four teens prepared to fly home in the Megaship while Andros, Zhane, and Karone were planning to remain on KO-35.
  • As the four teens readied for liftoff, Andros got in to go with them, saying his home was with them, and Karone and Zhane went with him.
  • Entering, Zhane said the "Megazord," referring to the Mega Winger, was in the shop and asked for a ride.
  • As the teens and Karone talked happily, Zhane sat at a command station and kicked his feet up, making the teens and Karone laugh.

    730-TenP

  • Upwards of a year after 643-CTD2, the Space teens visited Terra Venture to help the Galaxy Rangers against the Psycho Rangers, but no mention was made of Zhane.
