Chapter 1: Double Threat
He appeared within several hundred miles of Corinth City; this mysterious, mechanical creature was called Terrorbyte, his design was similar to Kilobyte with the only discernible differences being he had blue eyes instead of red, and had what appeared to be a scar on his left cheek area. And aside from a few minor differences mostly cosmetic, to the uninformed you could of sworn he was Kilobyte with a few upgrades.
"Master Venjix should have built some sort of highway system; all of this sand is positively ridiculous." he spoke for the first time in hours with a British accent.
"Where the devil is this 'Corinth City', anyway? I've been walking for what seems like days now, and still no sign of life... Only, dirt as far as the eye can see."Terrorbyte said to himself as he continued to walk through the vast wasteland, stopping for no reason for several more hours until something catches his eye...
"Well, what do we have here?" he pondered to himself as he eyed a parked vehicle in the distance. Slowly, he begins to make his way down the hillside where he was standing.
"A primitive transportation vehicle; what do the humans call them again? Oh, yes... An automobile." Terrorbyte said to himself as he approached the vehicle.
"What a piece of junk." He said as he ran his hand down the side of the vehicle beginning at the hood, he approaches the window where there appears to be a skinny, middle-aged man fast asleep.
"He looks so peaceful... Too bad I have to wake him." And with that, Terrorbyte grabs hold of the man's collar and forces him out through the window.
"Rise and shine, sleeping beauty." he said in a sarcastic tone.
"Ugh..." he said in a groggy voice, his eyes still closed, after a second his hands slowly make they're way to his eyelids, and with a yawn, he rubs the sleep from his eyes and proceeds to open them.
"Where...Where's the fire?" the man asked, one eye open, while he rubs the other one. He was obviously hung-over.
"Hmm..." Terrorbyte uttered as he put his hand to his chinin thought.
"Ah!" the man screamed as he finally realized who or what was speaking to him.
"You're not a very healthy looking human, I'll give you that."
"W-W-Who in the world are you?" the man asked, sitting up from the ground.
"Well now, that all depends... I could be your best friend, or I could be your worst nightmare."
"W-What do you want?" the man asked.
"Some information... Do you happen to know the location of one Corinth City by any chance?"
"And why should I tell you?" the man asked; this causes Terrorbyte to swiftly pick him up by the front of his shirt, raise him into the air, and then bring him back down to eye level.
"Because if you don't, I might just loose by temper, and trust me, you wouldn't want to see that..."
"Okay... Okay... Okay..." the man replies in utter fear.
"That's better." Terrorbyte replied as he loosened his grip on the man and sat him back down on the ground.
"Well, I'm waiting..."
"Corinth City? Good luck finding that, its just a myth. In fact, you won't find cities around here, not since Venjix took over."
"You're not very bright, are you?"
"What's that suppose to mean?"
"If there's nothing I can't stand, its a drunken human." Terrorbyte said as he lifted the man off his feet for the second time.
"Hmm... you know what? I need to approach this from a slightly different angle..." Terrorbyte began, sitting the man back down to ground level.
"Okay, here's the deal... you scratch my back, I scratch yours... what will it take for you to give me the information I require?" Terrorbyte asked.
"I'll tell ya what it requires, fella... booze, booze, and more booze!"
"That's what I thought... here's a dollar, go drawn yourself in intemperance..." Terrorbyte said in a mocking tone as he threw a dollar at the man.
"A dollar? How am I suppose to buy booze with a dollar?" These words sets Terrorbyte off, he rushes the man and lifts him up.
"Now see here... I haven't the time nor the patience for your nonsense... Are you going to tell me what I want to know, or do I have to get violent with you?"Terrorbyte said, annoyance as well as anger in his voice.
"Okay... Okay... But please put me down, I'm scared of heights!"
"If you insist..." and with that, Terrorbyte swiftly loosens his grip and sends the man quickly plummeting to the ground.
"You're pathetic... Scared of heights indeed..."
"You've wasted enough of my time as it is... Tell me what I want to know, or else..."
"The coordinates; they're written down in my bag over there..."
"You just saved your life..." Terrorbyte said as he approached the man's bag that sat on the hot ground; he swiftly empties the bag until he finds the coordinates written down on a piece of paper.
"Now then... Get up and get out of here, before I change my mind about sparing your life."
"Yeah... Yeah... You don't have to worry about me, I'm gone!" the man said as he quickly got to his feet and rushed to his car door where he swiftly jumped in, ready to take off.
"Hmm... Nothing like a little target practice..."On the end of this note, Terrorbyte suddenly turns around, pulls out his plasma blaster, and swiftly fires it at the man's vehicle, destroying it in a tremendous explosion, Terrorbyte laughs as he looks at the twisted, burning wreck.
"Oh, how wonderful! What a show!" Terrorbyte said as he began to clap his hands together in applause.
"Although, I can't help but wonder why he was out in the middle of nowhere and not in the sanctuary of Corinth..." Terrobyte pondered as he put a finger to his chin in thought.
"Who cares? I have more important business to attend to..." he said as he walked off towards the coordinates of Corinth.
Several hours later, it is night fall and the citizens of Corinth are all fast asleep, totally unaware of what is about to happen...
Terrorbyte had managed to easily infiltrate the city; and took good measures to ensure he wasn't seen by anyone.
"The signal appears to originate from this building..." Terrorbyte said silently to himself as he held up some sort of device. The building is none other than the Garage, the former base of operations of the Power Rangers.
"The security in this city is pitiful..." Terrorbyte said as he approached the building.
"No guards, no defense grid, nothing... This is too easy." Terrorbyte said as he got closer. Suddenly, the device in his hand goes off with a beeping sound.
"The signal is even stronger now, this must be the place..." Terrorbyte said as he finally reached the building, the only thing standing in his way being a garage door.
"A simple garage door; that's it? I would of expected more..."
"There doesn't seem to be anyone around, so I guess I'll just let myself in..." Terrorbyte said as he drew his weapon and fired it, blowing the door to bits. Terrorbyte calmly steps over the metallic debris of the door and into the building.
"So this is where the good doctor escaped too after Venjix took over... The place doesn't match her personality at all." Terrorbyte said as he surveyed the place.
"What I'm looking for must be around here somewhere..." Then, as if right on cue, the device starts beeping like crazy...
"I must be close, this thing is going crazy..."
"I'm close... But where... where is it?" Terrorbyte asks himself as he points the device in all directions trying to get a fix on the signal. The device beeps wildly at a set of metallic doors leading to Dr. K's lab.
"Apparently, me and doors just don't mix... or automobiles for that matter..." he jokingly said as he approached the doors. He pulls out his blaster and fires it...
"There it is! Right there!" he said as he swiftly entered the room. There is a briefcase lying on a table in the room, Terrorbyte approaches it, sticks his finger into the locking mechanism of the case, and it opened with a familiar click. He then proceeds to open the case.
"The morphers..." He said to himself as he looked at the contents of the box, six morphers, one for each Ranger Operator.
"Which one is it?" he thought to himself.
"Ah, here it is... the Series Red morpher... where the very essence of my master is trapped..." On the end of this note, he takes out some sort of device; it flashes for a few seconds and comes to a stop.
"Yes... Soon you'll be back where you belong master!"
"You're very essence has been extracted from the morpher... my mission was a complete success!" before he can celebrate however, he hears a noise of a screw hit the floor from the garage portion of the complex.
"Huh?" he says as he promptly shuts the case back, and puts the extraction device in his pocket for safe keeping. He then makes his way out of the lab.
"Who's there?" he shouted, as he made his way out of the lab.
"Didn't your mother ever teach you its not nice to steal?" a voice answers back.
"Where are you? Show yourself!" Terrorbyte replied to the mysterious voice.
"If you insist..." the voice steps out of the shadows to reveal the skinny familiar figure of Ziggy Grover.
"A human? Oh, I'm shivering in my boots..." Terrorbyte taunts.
"Not just any human..." Ziggy says as he shows his wrist to the villain.
"A Series operator?"
"Yep... Now how about handing over that device you got there, big guy?"
"It makes no difference, you're no match for me..."
"Because I have a black belt in..." before he can finish his sentence, he has to dodge one of Terrorbyte's attacks.
"in karate... but I guess you don't care!"
"You're right, I don't!" Terrorbyte shouts as he delivers a kick, but Ziggy is able to jump out of the way.
"Say goodbye!" Terrorbyte said as he fired his weapon. Only seconds before the blast hits, Ziggy is able to activate his morpher.
"RPM, get in gear!" he shouted, instantly transforming into the Green RPM Ranger; he is able to dodge the explosion before it hits, and somersaults his way out of the path of the blast.
"You missed me!"
"I won't miss next time!"
"You couldn't hit the broadside of a zord!"
"You little worm!" Terrorbyte said in anger as he engaged the green ranger in hand-to-hand combat.
"You don't stand a chance, boy."
"Well, neither do you... whatever you are!"
The fighting continues as Terrorbyte delivers several punches and kicks, all of which Ziggy is able to dodge.
"Man up and face me, Ranger Operator Series Green!" Terrorbyte said tauntingly.
"Why? You're not even a man!" Ziggy said as he blocked Terrorbyte's hands with his own. He delivers a kick that sends Ziggy hurtling several feet backwards; Terrorbyte prepares to draw his weapon.
"Oh, man!" Ziggy jumps out of the way in the nick of time as Terrorbyte's plasma blaster goes off, it hits the kitchen area where it ricochets until it reaches Scott's car, blowing the hood off.
"Woah! Scott is not gonna be happy!"
"Aah!" Terrorbyte yelled as he ran for Ziggy, sword drawn,
The fight continues; Terrorbyte delivers a kick, but its caught by Ziggy.
"Uh... unhand me you wretched little..."
"If you insist!" Ziggy releases his leg, flinging him backwards onto the floor.
"Alright, we can do this the easy way..."
Before Ziggy can finish his sentence, Terrorbyte swiftly picks himself up off the floor and runs towards Ziggy.
"Or the hard way!" Ziggy is barely able to dodge Terrorbyte's moves, the machine delivers a strike to the side of Ziggy's rib with his sword, causing his suit to emit sparks, he grabs it in pain.
"Aah!" Ziggy yelled in pain.
"A pity you humans bruise so easily..."
"You're not leaving here with that case!" Ziggy said, pointing a finger at Terrorbyte.
"I beg to differ!" he said as he drew his weapon, ready for the kill.
"Me and my big mouth..."
"It's been fun..." Terrorbyte said as he started to raise his blaster.
"But I've got to run..." the blaster fires, hitting Ziggy and propelling him backwards to the other side of the garage, where he collides with a table, flipping it over with him on it.
"Anybody get the number of, whatever that was?" the groggy Ziggy asked to no one in particular.
"I'll definitely feel this in the morning..." Ziggy said as he picked himself up off the floor, he proceeds to dust off his suit with his hands.
"Oh, you're going to be feeling a lot more in the morning when I'm through with you!" Terrorbyte appeared seemingly out of nowhere. He jumps Ziggy, and forces his head down on a table.
"I could kill you here and now, I could break your neck, severe your spine, and a lot worse..."
"Is there a point to this story?"
"Not one that you'll learn..."
"Yeah... I guess not!" Ziggy said as he freed himself from Terrrorbyte's grip, he delivers a head-butt sending the machine stumbling backwards.
"Let's get it on... Turbo Ax!" Ziggy yelled as the weapon materialized into his hands, he charges at Terrorbyte with the weapon.
Before any one of them can get a hit in; the shear weight of the ax causes Ziggy to stumble right past Terrorbyte, and get the ax caught in the open window of Scott's car.
"What do you call that?" Terrorbyte asked
Ziggy grunted as he attempted to get his weapon free
"Just give me a minute here."
"Sorry to say, you don't have a minute!" Terrorbyte yelled as he prepared to fire his weapon. Ziggy sees this, and attempts to open the car door in order to get his ax free.
"Oh, come on! Locked?" Ziggy said in panic.
"Wait a minute..." Ziggy said to himself as he reached into his pocket where he pulls out a set of car keys.
"Yes! I knew it was a good idea to take Scott's car for a joyride!" And with that, he places the keys in the keyhole, turns it, and its unlocked. He opens the door, gets his ax free, and swiftly moves out of the way right before Terrorbye's plasma blaster strikes the door, blowing it off.
"Oh, man! Scott's really not gonna like that!" Ziggy yelled in a panicked voice.
"Fight me, blast it!" Terrorbyte shouted as he thrust his sword in Ziggy's direction, luckily he teleports out of the way just in time.
"Where... Where did he go?" he said to himself as he surveyed the room.
"You can run Ranger Green... but you can't hide!" he said as he circled the room, attempting to locate Ziggy with his scanners.
"Hmm... the suit must have a cloaking device of some sort... I'm not getting any readings" he said to himself.
Meanwhile, several feet away Ziggy slowly makes his way to Terrorbyte's back in an attempt to ambush him, he senses this though, and quickly turns around and fires his weapon at nearly point-blank range into Ziggy's abdomen area, sending him hurtling several feet back, where he de-morphs.
"Did you really think I'd fall for that old trick?" he said pointing the tip of his sword at the helpless operator.
"Not to worry... This time I'll let you go, but the next time we meet... you won't be so lucky, farewell!" Terrorbyte said as he threw a smoke-emitting capsule on the floor, and within seconds disappeared.
"Uh... what was that all about?" Ziggy asked himself as he leaned up from the floor.
"What is going on down here?" a familiar voice asked, the voice of none other than Dr. K, as she made her lean figure down the stairs.
"Ranger Green!" she yelled in a panic as she rushed to his side.
"Boy, doc... am I glad to see you!... don't tell me you slept through all that?"
"Well, unlike some people I know... I actually require eight-to-ten hours of sleep nightly! Now then, what happened here?" the doctor asked.
"Some nutcase busted in here and threw me around like a rag-doll is what happened!"
"You started it, no doubt..." the doctor replied in a sarcastic tone.
"Well, he's gone now..." he said as he got up and dusted himself off. On the end of this note, Dr. K's face suddenly grew a concerned look, as she eyed the charred remains of the doors leading to her lab.
"No..." Dr. K said to herself softly, as she began to make her way to the lab entrance.
"Hey, doc... where are you going?" Ziggy asked, but the doctor didn't bother answering back.
"Whats up, doc?" Ziggy asked as he got up and began to follow her.
Slowly, the doctor continued to walk towards her lab, taking caution to step over the debris of the doors. She quickly makes her way towards the case containing the morphers and promptly opens it, Ziggy standing right behind her.
"Oh no..." Dr. K said in a concerned voice.
"Oh no what? Doc... You're starting to scare me..." again, she said nothing.
"...Doc?" Ziggy said, still not getting an answer.
Later that morning...
The newly constructed control tower was humming with life, soldiers making they're way in and out of the building, one soldier in particular, Maria Vasquez stopped to salute a familiar face.
"Colonel Truman..." Vasquez said, this causes the Colonel to turn around in his seat to make eye contact.
"At ease, soldier..." the Colonel replied as he stood up from his chair.
"Vasquez, how are you?" the colonel inquired.
"I'm fine, sir... You'll be happy to know that I'm back at one-hundred percent, and ready to serve anyway I can..."
"Well, we can always use all the help we can get but you know... you don't have to call me colonel anymore, after all... it is peace time you know. You could always call me Mason."
"I don't want to sound disrespectful, sir... I prefer to call you colonel."
"Very well, as you were..."
"Oh, uh... Colonel Truman?"
"Well, sir... I feel as if I have to do something, I just can't stand around and do nothing... is there anything I can do, anything at all?"
"Well, I could use a secretary of sorts... What do you say?" the colonel asked.
"Yes sir! You can count on me!" Vasquez replied excitedly.
"Alright then..." the colonel said as he saluted Vasquez, she in turn does the same thing.
Following this, Vasquez walks off, and the colonel notices Hicks giving him a strange look.
"A secretary, sir? Are you serious?" the corporal asked.
"Well, I had to give her something to do... I just didn't have the heart to tell her no..."
"We all due respect, sir. A secretary of all things?"
"Get back to work, Hicks!"
"...I mean... what are they good for anyway?" Hicks said under his breath.
"What was that, soldier?" the colonel asked.
"Oh, nothing sir..."
"I bet..." The colonel said before walking off to his office.
The colonel sat in his office going through papers, mostly trivial things such as keeping the numerous markets around the city stocked with food, the scheduling of the Corinth Gazette deliveries, making sure all the citizens had decent jobs, reading complaints sent by citizens who didn't have decent jobs, and wading through his mail, which had begun to pile up in six months.
After going through the routine of reading the angry letters and cutting out coupons, the colonel threw an envelope to his desk and leaned back in his chair with a sigh.
"I'm too old for this." he said softly. As he's leaning back in his chair, he notices the picture of himself and his late son, Marcus. Eyeing the picture, he picks it up.
"You should see Scott... You'd be so proud of your brother..." the colonel said softly, a feeling of melancholy coming over him.
He's momentarily brought out of his funk by the sound of an intercom.
"Yes, Vasquez? What is it?" the colonel asked as he pressed the talk button.
"Dr. K and Ziggy Grover are here to see you." she replied.
"Oh, alright then... send them in." he said.
"Yes sir." she replied.
Dr. K and Ziggy are in the colonel's office several seconds later.
"Ah, Dr. K... Mr. Grover..." the colonel said as he gestured towards them.
"To what do I owe this pleasure?" the colonel asked.
"Colonel... we have... some news..." Dr. K began.
"News"? The colonel asked as he raised an eyebrow.
"And... I'm afraid its not good news..." she continued.
"Why do I get the feeling this isn't a social call?" the colonel asked.
"I wish it were, believe me colonel I wish it were..." Dr. K replied.
"But, we've got big problems..." she continued.
"It has to do with Venjix..." Ziggy added, this causes Dr. K to elbow him in the shoulder.
"Well, I can't wait to hear this one... Vasquez, hold all my calls for today... Thank you."
"Okay, I'm all ears." the colonel said.
Meanwhile, in the wasteland, Terrorbyte wanders the perimeter of what used to be the base of operations for his master, Venjix Palace; still left standing after six months.
"This shouldn't be too difficult..." he said to himself.
One guard is stationed in front of a mound of dirt, clutching his blaster in hand. On the opposite side stands the lone machine, prepared to go in for the kill. scanning the ground, Terrorbyte eyes a small pebble, he promptly picks it up and throws it, gaining the attention of the guard.
Who's there? Come out and show yourself!"
The guard yells, but Terrorbyte remains on the opposite side. Slowly, the guard begins to approach the giant dirt mound, his blaster drawn. After several seconds, he's merely a few feet away from Terrorbyte's hiding place. He turns the corner and strangely enough, Terrorbyte has completely disappeared.
"Strange, I could of sworn I heard something back here..."
"Indeed you did!" Terrorbyte said from atop the pile of dirt, his plasma blaster drawn and ready to fire.
Before the guard can react or even think, Terrorbyte fires on him, a glowing light can be seen, and agonizing screams can be heard from the other side where the guard was stationed.
Following this, Terrorbyte puts the blaster up near his mouth, and blows away the smoke emitting from it in a show of victory. He jumps down from the pile of dirt, and proceeds inside the palace.
The interior of the palace is no different from the exterior; guards are stationed all around the place. Terrorbyte makes his way down one of the many hallways scattered throughout the palace, he stops at the very edge of the hall and leans against the wall to avoid being seen by the passing guard.
He then sticks his head out to make certain there are no more passing by guards, and after a few seconds, he continues his trek towards the central control room of the palace. About halfway there, he stumbles across a bolted metal door, of course this is hardly an obstacle for the machine, he draws his blaster and fires it, blowing away the door as if it were mere plastic.
"An intruder, we're under attack!" the guard yelled to his men, but it was too late. Terrorbyte proceeds to blast them, the blasts easily piercing through they're armor, killing them instantly. Following this, the guards drop to the floor likes flies.
"How strange, I would of expected more out of Corinth's finest..." Terrobyte said to himself as he calmly stepped over the dead bodies and proceeded onwards through the palace.
Meanwhile, in the central control room of the palace, a small band of Corinth soldiers are hard at work loading numerous technological devices into various crates scattered throughout the room, the devices are meant to be shipped back to Corinth for study.
"Okay, people... Lets get a move on! The colonel wants this Venjix tech safe and secured in Corinth before sundown!" the commander of the group yelled out as he surveyed the goings on in the room.
"Well, what do we have here?" Terrorbyte said outloud as he suddenly burst into the hallway, blaster drawn and ready.
"Terrorbyte? We're under attack!" the commander yelled as he attempted to rush the machine, before he can make it, Terrorbyte fires his blaster, striking the man in the back, the force of the blast forces him onto the floor, the guards stand in place in shock at what just transpired, as smoke emits from the commander's lifeless body.
"Die, humans!" Terrorbyte shouted as he opened fire on the soldiers, who were standing on the platform near the technological pillar that Venjix once resided, they take cover behind the pillar.
"Humans... Always hiding away from certain death!" Terrorbyte yelled as he continued to blast everything in sight, he then promptly swings his blaster like a machine gun, blowing away part of a crate, and nearly blasting a nearby soldier in two who jumped out of the way just in time.
Following this, a group of soldiers enter the room through the hallway atop the platform, totally unaware of what is happening.
"What a surprise... welcome to the slaughter, kiddies!" the bloodthirsty machine screamed as he opened fire on the clueless group of soldiers, his blasts hit they're intended target perfectly, and the soldiers drop down to the floor lifeless.
"Who's next?" Terrorbyte asked to no one in particular as he pointed his blaster back and forth trying to attain a target.
Unbeknownst to Terrorbyte, a young soldier stands behind one of the nearby crates, his blaster was drawn, but he was sweating like a jock, knowing that he could very well cease living at any moment. Suddenly, the young soldier foolishly rushes in, intent on neutralizing the enemy by any means necessary.
"Huh?" Terrorbyte uttered.
However, before the young soldier can react, Terrorbyte trips both of his feet in mid-run, before he hits the floor, Terrorbyte grasps the man's neck and legs, and with a grunt, Terrorbyte breaks the young man's neck and back, killing him. He then tosses the young man's body aside like a pin-cushion.
"All too easy." Terrorbyte said.
"Come now..." Terrorbyte began, eyeing the remaining soldiers on the platform.
"We all must die sometime." Following this, more soldiers suddenly began to flock to the floor where Terrorbyte was standing.
"Well... It appears the cavalry has arrived, no matter..." Terrorbyte said as he engaged the soldiers, he delivers a kick to one that sends him hurtling into a crate, grabs one by the collar and smacks him, he then proceeds to kick him to the ground.
He jumps up to the platform where the other soldiers are, and proceeds to take them out as well. He delivers a kick that sends another soldier hurtling into another crate, he then delivers another kick that sends one soldier flying head first into the attack bot pit.
As for the rest, Terrorbyte simply shoots them, putting and end to the short battle. The remaining soldiers drop to the floor dead, Terrorbyte puts his mouth up to his blaster and blows away the smoke emitting from the tip.
"That was almost too easy"
"Now then..." He began, approaching the control panel near the pillar.
"Its time for your homecoming, master..." he said as he began to type a few buttons on the panel. He then takes out the extraction device containing Venjix's essence and places it into a small hole in the console.
"Any second now, and you'll be back where you belong..." On the end of this note, the pillar starts to hum to life, the optical eye blinks, indicating the presence of Venjix.
"Uh!" Venjix moaned.
"What... What happened? Where am I?" Venjix asked in slight confusion.
"Back in your palace, where you belong Master..."
"Is that you, Terrorbyte?" Venjix asked.
"In the flesh, if I had flesh..." Terrorbyte said jokingly.
"Tell me, Terrorbyte... what has happened during my absence?"
"Well, you've been trapped in the bio-field for the past six months... Following your last encounter with the Rangers..."
"Ah, yes... Its all starting to come back to me now... Tell me, how did I end up here?"
"I extracted your essence from the red ranger's morpher..."
"Ah... You freed me then? Truly... You are a loyal soldier, Terrorbyte! I'll make sure to reward you for this."
"Thank you, your grace..."
"Now then... We must begin preparations to mobilize and rebuild my armies!"
"I couldn't agree more, commander..."
"I want you to begin work on new Grinders immediately!"
"As you wish."
"We shall let the citizens of Corinth know that Venjix is back! And this time, for good! Those foolish humans think that they're rangers had destroyed me, how foolish they'll feel for letting they're guard down! The world, as well as Corinth City will be mine once again!"
End of Chapter 1
