Power Rangers: Pirate Squadron
(standard disclaimers apply. The subs that I've based this on are the property of TV-Nihon, and are downloadable at .com. The Super Sentai series is owned by Toei/Bandai, and Power Rangers is owned by Saban Entertainment and Nickelodeon. This fiction is based on the 35th Super Sentai, Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.)
The Cruel Space Empire is attacking Earth with large lasers. A huge fleet of Battleships is seen. The Henchman of the Empire, the Metalmen are marching in a downtown location. Then, a huge group of costumed heroes comes and fight the villains, with the lead one exclaiming that "Earth has who stand against all evil!"
The camera zooms out, and the viewer can see a mix of 199 of the Super Sentai and Power Rangers heroes. The narrator continues, that they protect the world with love, dreams, and peace. The Sixteen Super Sentai teams, along with the Eighteen Power Rangers teams, have always protected the smiles of the people.
The teams are shown facing a huge army of Metalmen. Each hero is fighting well against the Enemy, but the numbers are just too great. Each team uses their Special Technique to defeat the Metalmen. Soon, the Metalmen are defeated, but the fleet remains. Seeing it us their only chance to defeat the Empire, a Red Hero, the Super Sentai Akaranger, gets all of the Heroes to combine their powers and destroy the Empire's Forces. The souls of the lost Power Rangers, along with the living Rangers and Sentai Heroes, give up their powers, and the Battleships are defeated.
This, however, came with a high price. All of the remaining heroes permanently lost their powers. The Super Sentai fades into Legend, and time passes.
Camera shifts to a pirate ship flying through space. A mechanical bird is shown flying around inside of the ship.
NAVI: I sense it! I sense it! It's Earth! The Galaxy's Greatest Treasure!
A guy with green hair, named Don, walks up to the bird.
A picture of Earth comes up on the viewscreen. A girl wearing regal clothing walks up. Her name is Mai.
MAI: What a lovely planet! The people here must live comfortably.
A second girl, who is directly in front of the viewscreen, whose name is Alexis, stands comfortably.
ALEXIS: That's the usual commentary that you would expect from Mai! I just see a giant jewel!
DON: You are always thinking about things like that, Alexis!
A man wearing a blue jacket, similar to the others, walks up the stairs to the room with the two girls, Don, and Navi. His name is Joe.
JOE: Who cares about that? What we want is on that planet.
Joe goes over to a treasure chest. Opening it, we can see that the chest contains representations of the Rangers and Sentai who gave up their powers in the PROLOGUE.
JOE (cont): The greatest treasure in the galaxy.
MAI: You're just acting cool! I bet that Mr Joe is secretly excited about going to this planet!
DON: Is it really on this backwater planet? I mean, it looks like they cannot even travel through space yet. This treasure is supposedly worth as much as the whole galaxy.
The camera pans to a mysterious figure in red, sitting right next to the treasure chest with the keys. He is wearing a longer red coat with eagles on the lapels. This is Captain Marvellous.
MARVELLOUS: (confidently) Of course it is there.
The camera quickly pans back to the rest of the crew. The girls are smiling, Joe has his thumbs in his pockets (looking cool), and Don is neutral. An alarm goes off, and Navi speaks up.
NAVI: Oh no! Oh no!
Don goes over to the console and pushes a couple of buttons. The viewscreen changes to a fleet of Empire vessels.
DON: Oh, no! This is bad. They've found us!
Joe crosses his arms across his chest and slowly turns to face Marvellous.
JOE: What should we do, Captain? If we mess up, this could create a big problem.
MARVELLOUS: Then just make sure that it goes well.
DON: That's your decision?!
MARVELLOUS: That's what pirates do. (He gets up out of his chair holding a Pirate Key.)
Cut to Opening Credits:
NARRATOR: These youths travel the great seas of space searching for adventure and romance. They revolt against the Empire and proudly follow the pirate name. They are the Power Rangers: Pirate Squadron!
[the song "Go, go, Power Rangers plays with selected clips of the five Pirates. Every time the word 'go' is mentioned, it is a shot of the whole team.]
END MAIN CREDITS.
The main title appears on the screen. "Episode One: The Space Pirates Arrive!"
Marvellous is behind a ship's wheel in full Ranger costume.
MARVELLOUS: Ready the Mains!
Cut to the Empire's Lead ship, where a blue monster is conversing with a couple of Metalmen. The Metalmen are holding wanted posters for the pirates.
VILLAIN: So, it is the Wanted Pirates, huh? Crush them so that I...we can collect the reward! Together, they are worth 2 million! Fire!
A huge fleet of Empire Ships starts to fire on the Pirate Galleon, which starts to return fire. The ship turns hard to starboard and fires some more. This manoeuvre is fairly successful, as most of the enemy vessels are destroyed. The remaining ships concentrate fire on the Galleon. A large fireball is seen, but emerging from the fireball is the Pirate Megazord! Megazord quickly dispatches the rest of the ships.
ALEXIS: From here, it's a straight shot to Earth!
DON: Yeah! I hope that the treasure is really there!
MARVELLOUS: Of course it is there.
The Megazord transforms back into the Pirate Galleon. Shot switches to Earth, where the people of California are going about their normal lives. The Galleon appears through two huge skyscrapers. It puts down its anchors on top of a building, and the Rangers descend from the ship with ropes. They face the crowd that's showed up from on top of a building. Marvellous pulls out a bullhorn.
MARVELLOUS: (over bullhorn) Listen here, Earthlings! We are the Pirate Squadron. [chattering in the audience, with lines such as, 'did he say pirates?'] I am Captain Marvellous. This planet has the Greatest Treasure in the Galaxy, right? I want you to give it to me. ['Does something like that really exist?']
ALEXIS: (taking bullhorn) There is no use in hiding it!
MAI: (taking bullhorn) You should really not do that, Ms Alexis. [to the crowd] I wish thee fair tidings, Earthling Commoners. [she points at a crowd member] You there? Do you know anything?
COMMONER: I don't know anything about it, ma'am.
MAI: Have you heard any rumours about it?
COMMONER: I very deeply apologise, but I have no clue what you are talking about. I don't think that anyone here on Earth knows what you are talking about. [turning to the crowd behind him] Right?
JOE: This isn't what I was told.
DON: I told you it wasn't here [shaking Alexis, who hits him in the stomach]
ALEXIS: What shall we do, mon capitaine?
MARVELLOUS: We go eat.
DON: We don't have any of this planet's money! I'm sure that they don't take Imperial Zagins here.
Cut to Marvellous and Alexis in a jewellery shop. A salesperson is looking at a ring through a microscope.
SALESPERSON: This is absolutely amazing! This is one of the best pieces I have seen in years! (going over to a calculator, he punches in a number. Showing the calculator to the Pirates, he says) I'll give you $129,000 for it.
MARVELLOUS: One hundred and twenty-nine thousand 'dollars!'
ALEXIS: That's my ring you pawned, and it is just a loan! [walking on the street] You'd better pay me back, with interest!
DON: [to Joe, walking behind Alexis and Marvellous] He has no intentions of paying her back, does he?
JOE: He's a pretty carefree guy.
MARVELLOUS: [looking around] This is a pretty nice planet. There should be good food here.
DON: Then let's go to an expensive restaurant and have a gorgeous meal!
Marvellous spots a small café, serving coffee and sandwiches. Cut to above Earth, where a new spaceship, the Gigantic Horse is orbiting the Earth. On the bridge is Cyborg Bari, Chief of Staff General Tost, Technical Officer Hallu and Son of the Emperor, Prince Gill
GILL: Bari. Hallu. Are the preparations for the invasion of Earth ready?
BARI: Hai, bosu. ('Yes, boss'). We have your favourite Commander on standby, my Lord. He is the most cold-blooded of all your Commanders.
Hallu: I have developed the ultimate weapon, majesté. I would love to see your face, full of joy, when you see it in action.
GILL: No holding back. Show them the power of the Mighty Cruel Space Empire!
BARI/Hallu: (together) Oui, majesté. What about the pirates?
GILL: No need to worry about them. Pirates are mere flies compared to our Empire!
Tost: If you underestimate them, it may not be good.
GILL: (raging) You DARE DEFY ME? I am the Emperor's son! [to the helmsman, a Metalmen] Full Speed Ahead! Set a course for Earth!
Cut to the inside of a snack bar, which is different on the inside. In an homage to Ernie's Bar of MMPR, this place has an eating area and a workout area.
DON: Why this place?
MARVELLOUS: It looked interesting.
MAI: A taste of the commoner's lifestyle can be very interesting. A very good experience.
ALEXIS: The only unusual thing here is how ridiculous this is.
JOE: (to Marvellous) How are we gonna find the Greatest Treasure?
MARVELLOUS: Don't be in such a hurry.
A waiter comes over and takes their order. Soon after that, in an homage to Day of the Dumpster, the whole establishment starts to shake. Alexis' money starts flying all over.
ALEXIS: My money!
WAITER: Look out the window! MONSTERS!
Marvellous looks out the window and sees row upon row of Metalmen attempting to take over the Earth. A huge spaceship is once again attacking the city.
DON: Oh, no! The Empire's Flagship! We must have only fought the advance troops earlier! If they're here, it means that they're serious about conquering this planet.
A monster shoots his gun and blows up a building. A teacher and her students are seen running out of the building.
TEACHER: We'll be OK!
The monster corners the frightened children.
MONSTER: There is no use in running! There is no place to run! You will perish! [Teacher is inaudibly begging for the children's lives]
JOE: What should we do?
ALEXIS: I hate to say this, but this planet might have no future.
JOE: It would just be another part of the Empire's territory
MAI: Just like our* home planet. We would not want that to happen to another planet.
Indecisive, Marvellous looks around. He sees the monster threatening the children and their teacher.
MARVELLOUS: I don't like it.
Just as he is about to shoot the teacher, Laser Blasts come from behind, hitting him. The monster turns around to see the Pirate Rangers walking coolly towards him.
MONSTER: You are the wanted pirates! What are you doing?
MARVELLOUS: Who knows, Idiot?
MONSTER: You're just looking for treasure! If you go right now, I will forget I saw you.
ALEXIS: Be quiet, idiot!
JOE: You're the one who's going to disappear!
MAI: I don't wish to listen to what you have to say.
DON: Me neither. I hate guys like you!
MONSTER: Are you out of your minds? We are the Cruel Space Empire! Do you know what happens to those who defy us?
MARVELLOUS: We do. But... it's the plank for those whom I dislike! [pulling a cellular phone and key from his pocket. The rest of the crew is doing the same]
RANGERS: [Inserting key into slot] It's Morphing Time!
Cut to space, where letters are flying. The X goes through Marvellous and the others twice, transforming them into Pirate Rangers. Marvellous puts his hand in front of his face.
MARVELLOUS: [moving hand from right to left across face] Ranger Red
JOE: [putting his hand on his helmet, as if to take it off] Ranger Blue
ALEXIS: [making a three finger gesture the opposite direction of Red] Ranger Yellow
DON: [miming pushing his pants down] Ranger Green
MAI: [putting her hand over her heart] Ranger Pink
RANGERS: [together] We are...Power Rangers: Pirate Squadron
Returning to Earth, each of the Rangers takes out a sword and a laser gun. Immediately, Marvellous starts shooting at the Metalmen, who start to fall immediately. The teacher and students come out from a corner.
TEACHER: Could it be? A new Super Hero team fighting to save the Earth?
The children look bewildered, obviously not knowing what their teacher is talking about. The team cut down more Metalmen with their swords, shouting fight noises. Occasionally, one of the team will throw their weapon to another, so that they can use a double-weapon technique. They each hit their belt buckle, and out comes a figurine with the shape of a Mighty Morphing Power Ranger [obviously, without a sixth member, they don't have green or white]
RANGERS: [inserting MMPR key, together] It's Morphing Time! [after transformation] Mighty Morphing Power Rangers!
Red hits the Metalmen with the Power Sword, Pink hits some with her Power Bow, Yellow [with skirt] hits some with the Daggers, etc. The Metalmen go down easily
TEACHER: That's the Mighty Morphing Power Rangers! But how? They haven't been seen for years!
MONSTER: That was quite a good show, but I grow tired of it. Auf Wiedersehen, Rangers!
The monster shoots grenades at the Rangers, causing them to turn back into Pirate Rangers. They quickly slash at the monster, getting good hits in until...
MARVELLOUS: Finish him off!
RANGERS: [inserting Ranger keys into their guns and swords] Final Wave!
The rangers send their glowing swords at the monster, destroying it. As it explodes, the team coolly turns around so that the explosion is at their back.
ALEXIS: [unmorphed] We've done it now!
ALEXIS: The empire will surely regard us as enemies now, even if not before.
MARVELLOUS: [with no fear in his voice] That is correct.
MAI: What shall we do?
Marvellous turns around to see the teacher and the children standing behind them.
CHILDREN: Thank you, Rangers! For saving us.
TEACHER: You truly are heroes, we really thank you.
Marvellous looks uncomfortable, and starts to walk away.
ALEXIS: We're Space Pirates—we just came for treasure.
TEACHER: Why did you fight them, then?
MARVELLOUS: [looking like he is trying to reassure himself that is the correct reason] I was just mad because I didn't get to eat my lunch.
The team walks off into the city, while the teachers give each other a look that clearly says, "What?"

*Mai, a princess on her home-world is using the royal 'our'
The characters used to write Ahim in Japanese also spell I'm. Mai comes from the Dutch Mij, meaning 'my'
I couldn't think of any feminine American sounding name with 'Luke' in it, so I used a standby
