  • Merely by looking at the outside of the small ship, Billy saw that a monitor suggested there was a heartbeat in the miniature pilot. (02:50)
  • Zedd said the Earth was 6,000 miles wide, but its actual diameter is almost 8,000 miles. (03:59)
  • Approaching Earth in Serpentera, Zedd had apparently locked onto the teens’ location in a workshop where they were constructing a decoy Bookala doll and Lightning Diamond, and he sent Weldo to the workshop as well, but he still remained oblivious to the teens’ plan to trick him with the decoys. (07:49)
  • Billy’s and Adam’s morphs were switched, placing “Triceratops” before “Mastodon”. (08:09)
  • When Billy, Adam, and Aisha morphed, a frame of Rocky’s morph was shown after Aisha’s. (08:11)
  • At the end of Rocky’s morph sequence in this episode, there was neither a zoom-in nor a Red Ranger helmet. (08:52)
  • Zedd continued to remain oblivious after the Bookala teleported back to the Command Center from outside for the Rangers to prepare their trick; only after the Rangers had set up the trick did Goldar observe that the Rangers were preparing to send the Bookala (actually their decoy Bookala doll) back into space. (10:08)
  • Tommy congratulated Adam on thinking to put the Bookala’s ship, with the decoy items, out in the open where Zedd could see them, but Zedd never before had a problem seeing into buildings, with the probable exception of the Command Center. (10:28)
  • When the Thunderzords arrived after being summoned, each Dinozord was first shown transforming into its respective Thunderzord in the mountains. (16:26)
  • It is unclear why Tommy didn’t call the White Tigerzord to join the Rangers in battle. (17:10)
