Disclaimer: This story is in no way bringing me a profit. Power Rangers and Power Rangers Turbo are all characters that belong to Saban. And the only thing I own is my idea for this story. Note: Ok, if the title isn't quite obvious some rangers are going to go to the past. I tried to do this story on the best of my knowledge of Power Rangers, and to make sure their is no confusion in determining the Turbo team from the Power Ranger team, I have color coded them.
Kat: Hey Tommy how's the racing going we haven't seen you in weeks.
Adam: Hey why the long face.
Tommy: I got a call last night. Jason's in the hospital.
Kat: What happened? Is he all right?
Tommy: Last night he was injured while fighting in a tournament. His parent told me that he will never be able to compete again, he'll be lucky if he can even walk after what happen to him. ( Tommy was feeling very depressed, and was unable to express his feeling to his friends)
Tonya: That's awful, we have to go cheer him up, let's go visit him.
Tommy: I don't know guys. He's always been there for me, now I can't do anything to help him
Kat: (places a hand on Tommy's shoulder) Yes you can Tommy, by being there for him during this time of difficulty you can help him through it.
Justin: (Justin rides up on his bike) Hey guys why all the long faces.
Tonya: I'll tell you later Justin.(Not wanting to get further on the subject, since Tommy was having difficulty dealing with Jason injury) Why don't we all go for a swim.
All five teenagers agree, and off they went to go play on the beach. Meanwhile Divatox was getting ready to put her latest plan into play.
Divatox: (glowing with happiness, as she looks through her periscope) I am so glad I was smart enough to sent a detonator to earth a couple of years ago. If I'm right then it should be going off with a big bang in about (pauses as she thinks) 5 minutes. The Rangers will never know what hit them .
Elgar: (scratches his head) Umm Antie D, when did you sent the detonator?
Divatox: (gives him a look) Well bone head, remember when we were fighting off some Sa-warriors of the Planet of Saaur.
Elgar: Yeah, what a bunch of pussies. We threw detonators at their ships...
Divatox: (cuts him off) You know the story, but to make it short, remember we had an unidentified thing floating in space, and we decided to blow that up too.
Elgar: Yeah, but I don't get what your saying
Divatox: DO I HAVE TO EXPLAIN EVERYTHING TO YOU WORD FOR WORD? At the time Lord Zed, placed Rita in a containment cell, and that's what the unidentified object was.
Elgar: How come Rita's not dead, then?
Divatox: Two reason: 1. She crashed landed on earth, and the detonator flew off the container; 2. When the detonator landed, it got reprogrammed, and after figuring out it's location I was able to determine when it was going to go off. So I then decided to let the rangers enjoy there last days of happiness. (giving an evil laugh)
At the beach Adam, Tonya, and Kat were setting up lunch on a picnic table, while Tommy and Justin swam in the water. All of a sudden there was a loud booming sound coming from the direction of the park. The sky started turning dark purple, as though thousands of poisonous gases were mixing with in the atmosphere. Tommy and Justin both popped their heads out of the water. They both knew this had to be one of Divatox's plans. Just before Adam, could yell to Tommy, he dropped to the ground, as though he was choking from the poisonous atmosphere. Tonya and Kat were reacting the same way. Tommy looked at his friends, and wanted to rescue them, but him knew it wasn't possible. He pulled Justin underwater, before either of them could be affected. Both disappeared in bright light colors, as they pressed their communicators.
At the Command Center, Dimitria and Alpha 6 shook their heads in disappointment, as though they should of known that this could of happened. Just then two streaks of light appeared one in blue and the other red.
Alpha 6: You guys were lucky to escape that death trap, if you would of stayed their any long you would of suffered the same fate.
Tommy: Dimitria what happened? (hoping that Dimitria will give him a straight answer)
Dimitria: Isn't quit obvious Tommy, Divatox knew something we didn't, and our sensors didn't pick it up, the question you should be more worried about is how this could of happened.
Alpha 6: (Alpha 6 does a scan of Angle Grove, to determine the location of the problem) Well everyone in Angle Grove is effected, it's just a matter of time before the hole world gets a taste of this stuff to.
Justin: (Justin looks at the Command Center's equipment) Well I don't understand why we didn't pick this detonator up before, the only way it could of been dismissed is if, well, it's location was ignored. We never shut down the Command Center, so how could we of missed it.
Tommy: (He thinks, then he opens his eyes wide) Justin we never shut down the command center, but Zordon did once, then their was that time when Zed blew this place up, and the time (lowers his head in shame, as thought his worst nightmare has returned to him) when I destroyed the Command Center.
Justin: (He became shocked) You? How could you do such a thing.
Dimitria: Justin it is not relevant to discuss Tommy's past doings, people have reasons for their actions, even if their actions are hard to understand.
Justin: (He took that as a hint not to talk about it.) Ok then, so one of those three dates was the date the detonator was planted. Alpha, we now currently know the signature of the detonator, so we should be able to trace all daily inspection files in the log, to find a signature that matches what were looking for.
Alpha 6: Good thinking Justin.
Tommy: Dimitria what are the condition of the people of Angle Grove.
Dimitria: My censors say that they are all sleeping.
Tommy: Well are they going to be ok when they wake up.
Dimitria: Tommy you were once in deep sleep, by the same stuff, you tell me?
Tommy: ( Gives a long think) Oh man, when they wake up they'll all be slaves to Divatox.
Justin: Is their a way to reverse the effects, how were you saved Tommy?
Tommy: I was saved by my friends, there is no way we can save everyone at once.
Dimitria: Not true Tommy, their is always a way.
Alpha 6: I found the date the detonator first existed.
Tommy: What's the date.
Alpha: According to the log it was the date you became the White Ranger, the Command Center was shut down, to make the newest member to the team.
Justin: Ok we know when this thing came, now what?
Tommy: Alpha, Dimitria, twice as a ranger I was sent back in time, do you think it's possible for me and Justin to go back in time, to stop this from happening.
Dimitria: (Smiles) Yes I do believe it could be possible, but we would
need a huge power source.
Justin: (Starts to rub his skin) Gosh wish I would of listened to Kat when she said I should wear some suntan lotion.
Tommy: Justin you're a genius, we can use the sun as a power source, got any big mirrors Alpha. Alpha 6: We just so happen, to have one in storage just give me an hour and well be ready, set, and go on this.
A hour passed.
Alpha 6: Everything is set to go
Dimitria: A word of caution, rangers, do not make contact with yourselves or your friends. If you must then seek Zordon's help. (Both Tommy and Justin nod their heads)
Alpha 6: Yo yo yo! Don't think about leaving until I tell you where it is. According to the log, Rita landed on earth, at the same time, there's a good chance that, that is the reason the detonator is here in the first place.
Tommy: I should of known. All right I think were set. Justin have the backpacks ready?
Justin: Yep, Let's get going
Alpha entered the information in to the Command Center's computer. All of a sudden a blue swirling pool formed before Tommy and Justin. Dimitria said, "May the Power Protect you rangers." Then both Tommy and Justin jumped through the pool. They had no idea what could be waiting for them on the other side.
The whirlpool opened up at Angle Grove Park, just after the birth of the white ranger. Tommy and Justin were thrown out of the whirlpool, and were surrounded by nothing but calm and quiet surroundings.
Justin: The was cool! I've got to do that again. (acting very energetic)
Tommy: (with a more serious look, as he helps Justin off the ground) Later Justin when we destroy what we came for. I believe Rita Landed over there. (he points his finger to a hill not far in the distance)
Tommy and Justin start to walk in the direction of the hill. Once they reach the hill they see six teenagers, holding a canister over their heads. Tommy notices and recognizes them and hardly pulls Justin to the ground behind the bush.
Justin: (Whispering) Ouch! What did you do that for?
Tommy: Sorry I had to do that. The Power Rangers are right in front of you. And that canister they have in their hands contains Rita Repulsa.
They watched as the canister containing Rita was placed right back into space. Then the six Power Rangers pressed their communicators and disappeared in 6 different color lights.
Tommy: (Getting off the ground, and helps Justin up) That was close. Well let the search begin Tommy took out a scanner from him backpack and starts to analyze the area for traces of the detonator.
Tommy: That's strange I'm not picking up any readings in the area, that match the detonator.
Justin: Maybe it's possible the detonator didn't land here. It might of broke off somewhere around here.
Tommy: Your probable right, lets split up, I'll met you back here in one hour. If you find anything suspicious let me know. Oh and don't forget what Dimitria said about avoiding yourself or any other ranger.
Tommy and Justin took off in opposite directions.
An Hour Later, Tommy and Justin met back at the hill.
Tommy: Find anything?
Justin: Nope, it seems hopeless, we've search the entire park, where else could it be.
Tommy: Justin don't give up hope yet, we have to find it our future depends on it.
Justin: Your right, but can we go get a drink it's getting hot out here with all this sun.
Tommy: I agree, but how are going to go into the Youth Center without us being notice.
Justin: Well I don't have to worry about being notice because nobody knows me out here, so I brought you a hat. Well actually Alpha picked the hat out. ( he pulls out a brown cowboy hat, from his backpack)
Tommy: Usually I would refuse to wear something like that, but what choice do I have. (he takes the hat from Justin and puts it on his head. He tilts the hat so it covers his eyes.) How do I look Justin: (Thinking he looks stupid) ok, just like a cowboy in a red T-shirt (Tommy walks ahead of him, and Justin starts to giggle).
Both Justin and Tommy stopped right in front of the Youth Center. Justin said, "Are you ready?" "Yeah", responded Tommy. He took a deep breath and started to walk towards the Youth Center's doors. When they both got inside they looked around for a table, that would give them an easy get away if their was trouble. They then agree to sit at the table in the middle of the Youth Center. They walked over to the table, trying not to make eye contact with anyone.
Justin: I'll go order us some water, ok.
Tommy: (Nodded in agreement. He sat down at the table and kept his head down. He looked out from the corner of his eyes, trying to identify the people who were around him. He also kept his ears wide open, in hope of hearing some gossip that might help them)
Justin walks up to Youth Center's counter. He sees Ernie and a guy in blue overalls and glasses, watching the latest battle of the Power Rangers on the news.
Ernie: (Looks at Justin) May I help you?
Justin: Yes, I would like two waters.
Ernie: Coming right up. (He takes two glasses off the shelf, and starts poring water into them.) I haven't seen you around here before.
Justin: Well I'm not from around here. Me and my friend over their were just going for a walk through the park and decided we needed some glasses of cold water to refresh us. Before we go back on the road. It's pretty hot outside.
Ernie: I'm sure it is. (Hands Justin the glasses)
Justin: (Turns his voice down, in hope that only Ernie could hear him) Have you seen or heard about anything unusual in the park. Like for instant, a device with a timer on it. My friend lost it a few hours ago and we haven't a clue where it is.
Ernie: Someone today just told me they saw a device that matches that description by the pond, but when they went to check it out it was gone. I told them it must of been the heat playing tricks on them.
Justin: Thanks for the information. How much do I owe you?
Ernie: Nothing the waters are on the house.
Justin: Thanks! (Walks away from the counter and returns to the table)
Ernie: (He takes his eyes off Justin as he leaves and went back to talking with the customer at the counter) Strange group of guys, don't you think Billy?
Billy: I agree.( He keeps his eyes on the boy as he returns to his table. He thinks to himself, and says in a tone for only him to hear.) Actually that kid was more then suspicious, I think I should keep an I on those two until the others get here.
Tommy: What took you so long Justin?
Justin: I was getting some information.
Tommy: What did you find out.
Justin: Erie said, that some guy found a similar device around the pond. But also said when the guy went to go check on it, it disappeared. Is it possible that the detonator could be alive?
Tommy: I'm sure anything is possible. That's probably why we can not track it. It might be moving away from us. We got to stop it from leaving the park.
Just then a group of teenagers entered the Youth Center.
Zack: Isn't great were all a team again.
Jason: This calls for a celebration.
Tommy(white): Man I never thought this day would come again.
Trini: Goes to prove dreams do come true.
Kim: (Holding Tommy's arm) Yeah! The teens walk up to the counter.
Jason: Six drinks of soda, Ernie.
Ernie: Coming up.
Zack: Hey Billy, what's you looking at?
Billy: Those two guys over their. The kid was asking about a device with a timer on it. Says his buddy lost it.
Billy: Its just suspicious.
Kim: I agree, that cowboy hat doesn't go with that red shirt.
Tommy(white): Maybe we should talk to them. See if we can help them find whatever their looking for.
Jason: That's not a bad idea, you never know who Zed might send after us.
Trini: Who's going to ask?
Jason: I will.
Kim: Count me in.
Jason and Kim start to walk over to Justin and Tommy's table.
Back at the table.
Justin: Tommy two people are walking our direction.
Tommy(red): (He takes a quick glance from under his hat.) It's Kim and Jason. I knew this was a bad idea to come here.
Justin: What are we going to do?
Tommy(red): Leave, but try to act natural. They might not be coming toward us. Both got up from and table and slowly started to walk to the door. Neither of them looked back. Kim and Jason walked faster towards them. Then Jason tapped Tommy(red) on the shoulder, and said, "Excuse me, I was wondering if we could have a word with you guys." Tommy froze, he didn't know what to do. He couldn't turn around. All he could do was hope that Justin had a plan.
Justin turned around, and looked at the concern look on Tommy's face. He then faced the two rangers that were questioning their actions. He then decided to survey his situation. He looked to his right, their was Bulk and Skull making some whip cream pies for the bake sale. Justin started to show of a wicked grin, he knew how to get out of this situation.
Justin: No you may not have a word with us.( He picked up two pies off the cart) Tommy duck! Tommy did as Justin told him. That pie went right into Jason's face. Justin pick up another and threw it at Kim. The pie went right on Kim's new pink shirt, and she was angry. He then yelled, "RUN!" Tommy ran for the door as fast as he could. Justin tried to do the some, but slipped due to the floor being covered with pie. He tried to get back up, but Kim grabbed onto his shirt. Tommy turned around, when he got to the door. He was about ready to go back for Justin, when Justin said, " Tommy get out of here before your seen, I'll be all right."
Tommy knew this was true and said, " I'll be back for after I find it." He then quickly leaves the Youth Center. Zack, Tommy(white), and Billy then tried to go after him but lose track of him, as soon as they went outside. Trini hands Jason a towel and then helps Kimberly grab a hold of Justin.
Jason: Did you get him?
Tommy(white): No, we lost track of him.
Jason: Why did you do that kid? (Looking at Justin, while he wipes the pie off his face.)
Justin: (Who was now covered in pie from head to two said nothing, but smiled. He just hoped that Tommy would be able to complete their mission with out him.)
Ernie: (Walks over to Justin) Well whatever your reasons are for doing this, your going to clean it up, then your going to contact your parents.
Justin: (His eyes widen. He thinks, my parents, how am I going to explain to them that my parent don't even know me in this time period) I can't call my parent, their on vacation. My friend Tommy was taking care of me, until they get back.( Justin thought is that the best I can come up with.)
Jason: I have a better idea Ernie after he cleans up this mess he can
help us out with some work.
Justin: I like that idea better.(He thinks, that will be the perfect time to escape.)
Tommy made it to the pond. He starts thinking," How could I of been so stupid to go there. I let Justin get caught. I should concentrate on the mission then I'll worry about Justin." Tommy decides to stop thinking and starts to scan the pond area for the detonator. The scan then starts to pick up a faint reading. Tommy said, "Even thought it's a faint reading it's a start."
On the moon.
Zed: What is Tommy up too? (As he looks at an image of Tommy by the lake)
Goldar: I thought he was wearing white?
Zed: Don't mind that, Goldar take some putties down their and find out what he's doing. (Goldar agrees, and disappears with 4 putties.)
The signal on Tommy's scanner was growing stronger. Then he saw the detonator. "So there you are", he said. Just as he was about to pick up the device, Goldar showed up with 4 putties.
Goldar: Now I've got you white ranger.
Tommy: (Looks at him, and thinks, he must think I'm the white ranger, boy is he in for a surprise.) Goldar it's been awhile.
Goldar: (He looks confuse, by what Tommy said) Putties attack!
Tommy was surrounded by putties on all four sides. But he wasn't worried. He knew that putties were a pie of cake compared to paranatrons. He then shouts to Goldar, "This is going to be a quick fight." After fooling around with the putties he decided now would be the time to stop fooling around. He first did a forward thrust, and destroyed two putties coming at him. Kicked the other two as they jumped at him.
Tommy: Is that all you got, Goldar, that wasn't even a challenge.
Goldar: You want a challenge, well your going to get it.( He starts to walk forward towards Tommy, but is interrupted by the voice of Zed)
Zed: Goldar come back to the moon, I have a plan.
Goldar: (Growled) Yes, my lord. Just wait until next time Tommy. (He then disappears back to the moon)
Tommy: I hope Zed doesn't know that their are two Tommys.
He turns around to where the detonator, was when he last looked. But it was gone. He scanned the area, but he had no trace of the detonator. He said, "Where did it go, it's like it disappeared in thin air, Zed!" Tommy was worried, Zeds possession of the detonator could alter time. The earth might be no more if he doesn't stop him. Tommy realized that he was going to need help.
On the moon.
Goldar: I wanted to fight him.(Says in a moaning voice.)
Zed: You will have your chance, so this is what Tommy's after. ( He hold's up the detonator)
Goldar: What is it?
Zed: You numskull, it a detonator. It will make the perfect monster to destroy the rangers. ( Zed shoots a red beam from his staff, and the detonator become a monster known as Demolition. He looks at Demolition.) When the time is right you will lead a full scale attack against the power rangers.
Demolition: Yes master.
Zed: (laughs) Nothing and no one can stop me now!
At the Youth Center, Justin is mopping the floor. He thinks, as he mops up the pie mess, "I hope Tommy has found that detonator by now, this mopping is making my back hurt. I should be helping him not mopping the floor." He looks at the floor, it looks shiny and completely clean. He thinks, "Done, now's my chance to sneak out before anybody notices." He places the mop down and starts to head towards the door. Then all of a sudden, Jason walked in wearing clean clothes and headed over to Justin. "Rats," Justin thinks.
Jason: (Looks at the floor, then to Justin) I see your done cleaning up are you ready to do some more work.
Justin: (Lets out a huff) What kind of work?
Jason: Well me and my friends are picking up the park for charity, and we could use another person on the team.
Justin: (Thinks to himself, "Didn't I just do that last week!") all right, it's not like I have a choice, it's either that or call my parents.
Jason: All right, then lets get going. Umm wouldn't you like to change first?
Justin: (He looks at himself covered in pie) Your right, give me a minute to change.( He grabs his bag and heads to the locker room, and change his clothes with the spare he brought with him. Then he comes back out and joins Jason.) Ok, I'm ready to go.
Jason: All right, the group is waiting for us.
Both left the Youth Center together and walk towards the park.
Jason: (Wanting to start a conversion) Let me introduce myself, I'm Jason. (Offering his hand for a shake.)
Justin: (He shakes Jason's hand) Justin.
Jason: Please to meet you, even if you threw a pie in my face. So if you don't mind me asking, this fella, Tommy, is suppose to be taking care of you. Why did he run off, and better yet why did you start a pie fight?
Justin: (Thinks, "Oh boy what to say.") Tommy is not a people person, he thinks someone is always out to get him, since he has problems with the law. So when you tapped him on the shoulder he freaked out, so I decided to give him a clean or in other terms a sloppy get away.
Jason: (Thinks, "Some how I don't think he is telling me the truth.") Well your friend has nothing to worry about, me and my friends are nice people. Any ways your friend is very strange.
Justin: Yes he is, he has always been like that, it must me a sickness.
Jason and Justin finally reach the park, and joined the rest of Jason's friends.
Zack: Jas my man, you missed an great speech from the mayor and I see you've brought a friend.
Jason: Guys I want you to meet Justin our notorious pie thrower (Gesturing towards Justin) This is Zack, Trini, Billy, Kimberly, and Tommy(white).
Justin: (Nods his head to everyone and starts to stare at Tommy, Gosh Tommy what on earth did you do to your hair.) Please to meet you all, I'm sorry about the pie fight, no hard feeling.
Kimberly: (Smiles) No hard feels.
The seven of them, then headed on their quest for garbage by the pond in the park. At the same time Tommy(Red) is trying to figure out where the detonator had gone, and what to tell Zordon. He then noticed the seven teenagers coming over the hill. He ducks behind a bush. Justin starts to pick up trash, he then heads over to the area when Tommy was hiding.
Tommy(Red) then grabbed Justin.
Justin: (Looks to Tommy(Red)) Did you find it?
Tommy(Red): I did, but now it's missing again. I think Lord Zed might have it. I've scan the area twice, I'm quite positive that Lord Zed has it.
Justin: What should we do?
Tommy(Red): We aren't going to do anything. You have to say with the Power Rangers and look out for the detonator. Me I'm going to seek Zordon's help.
Justin: All right.
Jason: Hey Justin where did you go?(Looking around for Justin)
Justin: I'm over here, just picking up some trash over here by the bush.
Tommy(Red): Talk to you later.
Justin: (Glances at Tommy, and walks back over to the group)
Jason: (Looks to Justin) For a second their I thought you took off.
Justin: Don't worry, I'm not planning of going anywhere.
All of a sudden Demolition appeared in front of the Rangers with seven
putties by his side.
Zack: What the heck is that?
Trini: Another one of Zeds monsters, it looks like a time bomb.
Justin: (Talking to himself in a low tone) It's the detonator, I hope Tommy(red) hasn't left for Zordon yet.
Demolition: You have met you doom. Putties attack!
Jason: Justin get out of here!
Justin: I can't just leave you guys!
Tommy(White): Justin go! Now!
Justin: (Thinks maybe I should go get Tommy, but he told me not to leave them. I have no idea what this monster is capable of.) NO!
Billy: Don't forget to hit the 'Z'.
