Chronology
Preceded by Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
Followed by Power Rangers: Zeo

Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers (often abbreviated as MMAR and often simply called Alien Rangers) is a Power Rangers miniseries set at the end of the third season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. As with the rest of 3rd season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, this series adapted footage and costumes from the eighteenth Super Sentai series, Ninja Sentai Kakuranger.

This also marks the re-usage of the intro version of the MMPR theme song for Megazord battles, a practice which had ceased in Season 2 when the original Rangers received the Thunderzords.

Synopsis

The five Alien Rangers

Master Vile has used the Orb of Doom to reverse the ages of everyone on Earth, including the Power Rangers. With his team now children and having no powers, Zordon recruits the Alien Rangers of Aquitar for help. These Rangers are humanoid, partially aquatic aliens and though Earth's environment is ultimately inhospitable to them, they agree to help. Master Vile's plans are foiled, and he leaves in annoyance, but Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa remain and intend to conquer Earth.

Hoping to restore everyone's proper ages, Billy Cranston builds a regenerator machine powered by the Ninja Power Coins. However, only Billy is restored to normal before the device is stolen by Goldar and Rito Revolto. The coins are then destroyed by Rita and Zedd. With the human Rangers' powers destroyed, only the Aquitian Rangers stand between Earth and the forces of evil, and they can't remain forever. Ultimately, Zordon realizes only one thing can restore everything to normal: the Zeo Crystal, which the human Rangers had split into five sub-crystals and scattered throughout time to keep it from Master Vile.

The five young Rangers are each sent back to a different point in time to find a sub-crystal. Upon success, they are returned to the present. All the while, the Aquitian Rangers, Billy, Zordon and Alpha 5 fend off the forces of Lord Zedd and Rita. The villains also plot to destroy the Command Center and steal the completed Zeo Crystal.

Ultimately, Zedd and Rita succeed in summoning the Aquitian Rangers' arch-foe, Hydro-Hog, to destroy them. After a great deal of difficulty, the Aquitian Rangers destroy him. Meanwhile, Aisha Campbell acquires the final sub-crystal in Africa. However, she chooses to remain in exchange for the sub-crystal and new friend Tanya Sloan goes in her place. Once the Zeo Crystal is recombined in a machine devised by Billy, Earth is restored to normal. The teenaged Rangers bid thanks and farewell to their Aquitian counterparts, who return to Aquitar. However, Goldar and Rito Revolto steal the Zeo Crystal out of the Command Center and their bomb goes off soon afterwards. The Rangers are teleported to safety just before the Command Center is destroyed.

Aftermath

This mini-series set up the transition from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to Power Rangers: Zeo. The two-part premiere of the latter resolved the cliffhanger ending and established the Rangers' new powers (as well as new foes, the Machine Empire).

The Aquitian Rangers are later seen or referenced in further seasons. Cestro returns unmorphed in "Graduation Blues", seeking Billy's help against the Hydro-Contanimators. Cestro later briefly appears with Delphine in "Revelations of Gold." The Aquitian and Zeo Rangers also team-up in the "Rangers of Two Worlds" two-parter, the first instance on the series of two full teams appearing together. (The two-parter also centered around Billy rapidly aging as a result of his use of the regenerator.) In "Countdown to Destruction" in Power Rangers in Space, the Aquitian Rangers battle and are overwhelmed by Divatox's forces. Aurico later appears morphed in the Power Rangers: Wild Force episode, "Forever Red", which saw every previous Red Ranger (save Rocky) united to stop the remnants of the Machine Empire.

Allies

Villains

Zords

  • Battle Borgs: Humanoid zords used by each Aquitian Ranger that were brought with them from Aquitar to Earth. They are similar to the Shogunzords, although less armored. They were controlled through telepathy.
  • Shogunzords: The Aquitian Rangers also had access to the original Power Rangers' Shogunzords and were able to form the Shogun Megazord (most of the monsters they fought were eliminated this way). Along with the Falconzord, they could form the Shogun Mega Falconzord, which they used to defeat their most feared nemesis, the Hydro Hog.

  • = these Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers episodes, despite being considered part of the mini-series, use the Season 3 opening of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers instead. The reason for this has never been specified, though it is likely because the Alien Rangers weren't established as regular characters until these very same episodes.
