After trying for several hours Dr. K was finally about to get the rangers' back online. The attack on her control room had caused significant damage to the rangers' morphing capabilities. Dr. K seemed confident enough to test the system.

As a precaution she had each ranger morph one at a time.

The first was Scott. His transformation was mostly successful in that his power was restored. There was one problem however.

“I'm yellow!” He shouted. “Why am I yellow?” The other rangers laughed.

“The power spectrum setting for Series Red is out of calibration. It will take a few hours to fix.”

“We may not have a few hours, Dr. K” Scott said.

“Your powers shouldn't be at all diminished,” Dr. K assured him.

“I can't fight like looking like this!” he argued. “I'm Ranger Red!”

Flynn was the next to morph.

“I'm green!” he said.

“Well, I guess everyone's suit will have to be re-calibrated” Dr. K said. “For now, Operator Series Blue, you will have to be Operator Series Green.”

“But I don't like green,” Flynn complained.

Ziggy was next. “Yes! I'm red!” he cheered. “It's because you have a thing for me, isn't it?”

“Operator formerly known as Series Green, the only thing I have for you is a lack of patience,” she said irritably.

Summer morphed next. “I guess I'm blue now,” she said.

Dillon was last to morph, and he was the least happy with his color change. “I'm Pink!?”

“Look! It's the Easter bunny!” Ziggy guffawed. Everyone laughed, even Dr. K.

Dillon promptly de-morphed. “You did that on purpose!” he said angrily.

“Aw, you look pretty,” Scott joked.

“Watch it, Brillo!” he shot back.

“Operator Series Pink, no one thinks any less of you because you wear a different color; least of all, Venjix.”

“Never call me that again!” Dillon growled. “I'm still the black ranger and you will change me back, NOW!”

“Negative. The harmonics of your suit's energy took months to calibrate” said Dr. K.

General Truman appeared on-screen. “Dr. K, grinders have entered the city,” he said earnestly. “I need backup as soon as possible to these coordinates!”

“Roger that” Dr. K responded.

“I'm not going” Dillon said.

“Yes, you are, Dillon. That's an order” Scott said sternly.

“Since I'm Ranger Red now shouldn't I be giving the orders?” Ziggy blurted.

“Alright, Ranger Red, what are your orders?”

“He goes with us,” Ziggy said confidently.

“Alright, but I'm not wearing a pink suit!”

“If I can be yellow you can be pink!” Scott told Dillon.

Dillon grumbled.

Meanwhile inside the dome Tenaya 7 leads a team of grinders and a muffler shaped robot. The robot had a tailpipe shaped head, black eyes, and a narrow slit for a mouth. “With the rangers out of the way, the city is ours!” Tenaya declared.

“Not yet it isn't!” Scott hollered back as he and the other rangers arrived a the scene.

The grinders charged at them and the rangers fought them hand-to-hand. Dillon as usual took out more than his share of grinders.

Tenaya ordered the muffler-bot to keep Dillon preoccupied so that she and the grinders could take on the weaker rangers. The bot pummeled Dillon mercilessly, forcing him to morph with a shout of “RPM! Get in gear!”

“I like your new look, Mr. Pink!” Tenaya 7 taunted.

“Alright! Dillon!” Ziggy cheered as he struggled to free himself from the clutches of a pair of grinders.

Following Dillon's example the other rangers morphed into yellow eagle, green lion, blue bear, and red shark.

“What is this? Musical spandex?” Tenaya snipped.

“It's not spandex,” Ziggy said, tossing aside a grinder, “It's advanced microfiber overt infiltration… I don't know, but it's definitely not spandex!”

Dillon jabbed at the muffler bot, pounding it with his fists. Each time he hit it a puff of black smoke blew out the top of it's head. He managed to tear a hole in it's chest and was enveloped in a cloud of black smoke before the bot fell crashing down.

Dillon strode out of the black smoke and stood stoically.

“Hey look!” Flynn said. “Dillon's black again!”

Actually, he only looked black because he was covered in soot.

Meanwhile, Venjix ordered a download of power to the muffler bot, reviving it and growing it to giant size.

The rangers, meanwhile, transformed to their proper colors.

“How'd you do that, doc?” Scott asked.

“I exchanged the color of your biosuits with other objects,” she said. “I've done the same with your zords.”

The rangers combined their zords to form the High Octane Megazord and the Valvemax Megazord. They defeated the muffler bot and forced Tenaya and her few remaining grinders to retreat.

Later at the garage, Dillon decided to let off some steam by playing pool with Scott. He pulled a ball out of a corner pocket. To his surprise it was a pink 8 ball. He also found a green 2 ball and a red 6 ball. “If this is someone's idea of a joke it's not funny.” Dillon growled to Scott.

“It wasn't me,” Scott said.

“I'm the one responsible,” said Dr. K from behind them. “What do you think I used to change your suits back to their proper colors?”

“And the zords?” Dillon asked.

“Well, Operator Series Black,” she said as she pulled a blue banana out of her pocket, “let's just say that Flynn won't be going bowling tonight.”
