In the not-too-distant future, Earth is home to various alien races. Thus, to keep the peace, an interstellar law enforcement agency known as Space Patrol Delta, or SPD, has established an academy on the planet. Three young members of its B-Squad cadets, Sky, Syd, and Bridge, each with genetic abilities and a desire to become a Power Ranger like those on the A-Squad, are assigned the task of arresting a pair of "Robin Hood"-like teens, Jack and Z, who turn out to also have genetic powers! As Troobian Emperor Gruumm, SPD Commander Anubis "Doggie" Cruger's old enemy, plots to bring his armies to Earth, the struggle between the B-Squad and the pair of thieves ends up interrupted by the intervention of Troobian cyborg soldiers, called Krybots!
Though given the chance to escape imprisonment, Jack and Z instead return to the ambush of Krybots, and aid the newly morphed B-Squad in their first fight as SPD Power Rangers. The pair of thieves are soon arrested despite this, but given a second chance, allowed by Commander Doggie Cruger to join the B-Squad. Z eagerly agrees, though Jack refuses and remains jailed. When Z realizes what she and Jack had that the Troobians wanted, can the B-Squad recover the device in time, against an assault by a Bluehead and Krybots? Or will they need a Red Ranger to make their team complete?
Emperor Gruumm's Troobian forces attack the Helix Nebula, prompting Doggie to send the A-Squad in response. With the resident Ranger team off Earth, the B-Squad cadets are given greater responsibility. Jack, already uncomfortable with being part of the team, soon discovers the perks of being Red Ranger, and abuses his status to an arrogant degree, putting him on the outs with the other Rangers. Can his ego be deflated and the team restored before they have to take part in their first Megazord fight?
Sky, falling back into the role of loner more now that he's been overlooked at being chosen as the Red Ranger, refuses to join in any of the teams' activities, and repeatedly argues with Jack during battle. His temper is only made worse when Jack and Bridge are given new super charged bikes, while he's not! Meanwhile, Gruumm and his minions scheme to steal a truckload of diamonds in hopes of converting them into a new source of energy. Will Sky's confliction with Jack end giving the Troobians what they want?
Syd becomes annoyed by the antics of the S.P.D's malfunctioning and obsolete robotic dog, R.I.C. But while investigating a series of missing person reports (all humans converted into gooey energy-fuel by Gruumm's newest alien lackey Rhinix), RIC saves the Pink Ranger from a Krybot attack. She talks computer experts Bridge and Boom into attempting an upgrade to the robot, but when it appears he's still working improperly, will Syd's persistance in believing in the robo-pooch pan out?
The team is on the lookout for an intergalactic bank robber. They see a suspicious-looking alien, T-Top, near the vicinity of the crime. Assuming that they have their man, they try to arrest him, but T-Top puts up a fight and evades them. Although the evidence points to T-Top as the bank robber, Bridge is not convinced of his guilt and asks to conduct his own investigation. The others are dubious of Bridge's methods as he tries to look beyond the obvious facts and uses his intuition.
Sam, a shy young boy, exhibits special teleportation powers, the use of which causes him ridicule among other children. Seeing that Sam has no friends, Mora lures him into helping her in her latest folly: using her Bugglesworth monster to turn humans into dolls, perfect for her collection. Sam aids the alien in teleporting an entire office building worth of doll-ized humans away, but in doing so, is spotted by the Rangers. Z sees a kindred spirit in the homeless child, and follows him, learning what she suspects about him is true, he's not evil, just looking for a place to fit in. He's wary when she tries to befriend him, and a jealous Mora intervenes by unleashing Broodwing's most powerful Troobian soldier, an Orangehead Krybot!
Time's running out for the humans turned into dolls, in a short while they'll be toys permanently! Z relates to her teammates the trauma of her childhood, in how it relates to her sympathy for Sam. Doggie adds his own trip down memory lane, and reveals the shared heritage between the B-Squad Rangers and the boy called Sam. Can Z convince Sam to embrace his uniqueness and use his special powers for good, or will he aid Mora and Bugglesworth in further crimes?
An SPD ship crashlands on Earth, carrying with it Dru, Sky's best friend, who has been missing for over a year. The two quickly reconnect their relationship, and Dru's perfect, top class cadet ways clash with Jack's ego. When an assassination attempt is made on Commander Cruger, Dru is blamed. Can Sky put aside his emotions to bring him in to face justice?
Jack & Syd go on a stakeout, watching over the former partner of a recently escaped alien criminal, Sinuku, who needs a device from her in order to activate his demagnitron weapons for Broodwing. But Jack's disregard for Syd's birthday, and his infatuation with the scientist they're supposed to be spying on, causes tensions to flare between the Red and Pink Rangers. To make things worse, Piggy joins their stakeout!
Commander Cruger's mood swings are exacerbated, when Troobian General Benaag, who led the forces which destroyed Doggie's homeworld of Sirius, comes to Earth with a vendetta against him. But Doggie's previously vowed to never again take up arms against an enemy! Will his entire team of SPD Rangers be placed in danger, or will he go back on his word? Also, Piggy wins the lottery, but will he trade in a life of garbage for a life of luxury?
General Benaag holds Dr. Manx captive, using her as bait to call out his old enemy Doggie to battle. Commander Cruger comes clean to the B-Squad with the major detail he left out about the fall of Sirius, and how it relates to the current situation. With the Rangers busy dealing with an Evil Giant Robot planting Proton Spikes around in the city in an attempt to create an ultra violent earthquake, Doggie has to deal with not just Benaag, but a hundred Krybots, alone at the rendezvous site! Will he use Kat's gift to him to save her, even if it breaks his vow of peace?
"The Evil", a stone of immense power said to have come from the depths of the abyss itself, is up for its centennial awakening. Gruumm wants its for himself, and sends an alien to seek it out from its warrior guardian. The Rangers will have their hands full, especially when their taking their newest teammate for granted to the point Shadow Ranger refuses to aid them in battle!
Mora recruits an alien named Valko to be Gruumm's second-in-command, whose first plan is to revive and control a dreaded cyborg beast known as Goradon. The key to taming it lies at the SPD Academy, with Bridge's new friend Sophie, who isn't what she appears to be.
The Rangers realize their mistake in expelling Sophie from the academy, and seek her out, only to have Valko find her first. He uses the female cyborg's supercomputer processor to harness Goradon, who proves to be too tough for the Delta Squad Megazord. The only hope lies with the Delta Base Security Defense system's Phase Two, which will take a not-quite-human to get it online in time!
Boom's lies to his parents about having not dropped out of SPD training, and leading them to believe he's the one and only Orange Ranger, comes back to haunt him when they come for a visit! When Morgana's schemes to impress Gruumm enough for him to restore her to her youth, leads to Jack & Sky going on a forced multi-dimensional escapade, Boom's masquerade puts the Rangers in danger. It'll take owning up to his mistakes, not to mention being true to what he does best, to rescue them.
While taking him in for questioning, Sky and the alien criminal named Wootox switch minds. As the Wootox-minded Sky makes like a trojan Ranger in infiltrating the Delta Command Megazord, the Sky-minded Wootox is hunted down by his former teammates.
Gruumm brings the legendary alien Samurai warrior named Katana from the year 1865 to present day Japan. The confused protector of Kyoto is tricked into believing the Rangers are his enemy by Broodwing. As the Rangers are dispatched to investigate this potential menace, Jack learns valuable lesson about fair swordplay.
The grouchy, bird-based Supreme Commander of SPD, Fowler Birdy, arrives at the Earth academy. His own ideas for how to run it better clash with those of current Commander Doggie Cruger. When Birdy orders Doggie to split the Rangers up when investigating Troobian attacks, he refuses, and ends up being relieved of his command! With Birdy now running the place, and dividing the Rangers up, it leaves them vulnerable when Gruumm comes to Earth on a souped-up motorcycle, prepared to destroy anyone who gets in the way of his desired rematch with Doggie! Can Cruger be called out of forced retirement in time, and what new gift of Kat's will aid against the newly mobilized Emperor?
Each one of the SPD Rangers has their own version of their latest battle, and each one tells it to Doggie, with expected exaggerations and differences.
Boom picks up a distress message from the future, claiming to be marking the 15th anniversary of the Troobain takeover of Earth, and today being the day it's supposed to happen! As Morgana takes up battle armor, and joins with a pair of the most dangerous alien criminals around in attacking the Rangers, it looks as though the warning is coming true.
Down to one Megazord, unable to recieve assistance from SPD High Command, and facing unstoppable foes, the Rangers, and the planet Earth, appear to be at the brink of defeat. The sudden arrival of the Omega Ranger might very well change that, but where does he come from, and what does he have to do with that time traveling orb of living light?
Morgana recruits a washed-up alien magician named Mysticon, giving him a magic wand, the abilities of which make him, and his dinosauric pal Al, capable of commiting numerous thefts. In exchange for this power, Mysticon puts on a magic show, in an effort to attempt to capture a leading microbiologist to aid Gruumm in his ultimate scheme, and ends up also putting would-be assistant Syd under a spell! Meanwhile, Doggie's favortisim of Omega Ranger over the others begins to get on the nerves of the B-Squad.
The Rangers run up against several alien criminals they've faced before, and all of whom are still captured! Sky, upset about not being given the new Battlizer Kat and Boom have developed for Jack, is sent to interrogate an imprisoned alien named Mirloc. He learns the source of the copycat criminals is a creature called Slate, able to change into others at will. But the information comes at a high cost for Sky, who has to relieve the sad fate of his father.
Sky learns that Mirloc, who manipulated him into helping his escape prison, is responsible for the death of his father! The alien criminal uses his abilities to teleport through any reflective surface to taunt and capture each of the Rangers, one by one, until only Omega Ranger stands! Even if he can be freed from Mirloc's mirror cell, can Sky finally obtain justice for his father and put to rest his own desire to become Red Ranger like he was? Meanwhile, Piggy finally chooses a side.
Gruumm pressures Piggy into making good on his promise to be evil. When Z & Kat come to him for a part needed to aid in the creation of a new armor upgrade, he enlists the aid of his two evil alien pals, Stench and Thresher, to plant a virus in it, allowing them access to SPD's computers! The criminals use the armor tech to give themselves a power boost, which spells trouble for the B-Squad. But the Rangers have bigger problems, namely their in-team bickering has increased to an all time high. Before they can get the SWAT mode needed to defeat the pair, they'll have to earn it by going through boot camp on another planet!
Pushed to their physical and emotional limits by Sgt. Silverback's intense training course, the Rangers, demoted and relieved of their Morphers, are forced to overcome their differences and faults to fully view themselves as a team. If the can pull their team back together, they'll finally wield the power of SWAT. Meanwhile, Shadow and Omega Rangers find the armored foes of Stench & Thresher to be more than powerful adversaries. Also, Piggy finds his allegiances pulled in various directions.
Bridge has a nocturnal premonition, where the Rangers' Megazord falls prey to three giant robots at once. Gruumm orders Morgana to draw up some new monsters, and though each of the three are defeated, the toll is taken on the B-Squad in the form of exhaustion. Unbeknowst to them, Broodwing is waiting for this opportunity, and has three of his criminal associates prepared to strike the tired and weary Rangers! Can Bridge follow his dreams and foil the evil plan before he relives his nightmare? And what special gift does Dr Manx have in store for them to aid in this venture?
Broodwing's associate known as Professor Cerebros alters the trajectory of a meteor, aiming it right for Newtech City. Between this, Jack & Sky's competitiveness over who gets to risk their life to save the world, and another Dragoul, the SPD Rangers are kept endangered and busy.
Given a promotion by Commander Birdy to chief technical advisor to the main SPD HQ, Dr. Kat Manx is torn between her role with the Rangers and that of a higher purpose. The B-Squad aid Boom in making it seem as though they can function without her, and she soon chooses to depart Earth. But with the inept Boom now in charge of the Rangers' technology, Broodwing recruiting the robot-making skills of her evil former classmate, Professor Mooney, and the promotion effectively ending her ability to do physical work herself, Kat will have to take on yet another role, as Power Ranger, to bring everything back to normal.
The karate-master alien criminal called Bork comes to Earth, aligned with the Gruumm-usurping Broodwing. He captures Bridge in a rapidly constraining cell, with a broken Morpher.
Summoned from the year 2005 into the future via an evil plot, Conner, Kira, and Ethan, the original three DinoThunder Rangers, quickly encounter 2025's resident team, the SPD Rangers. But with between Broodwing's giant monster Dragoul, and rival Emperor Gruumm's own Troobian assault on Earth occuring at the same time, SPD will need a little help in the form of their historical guests.
Icthior, Doggie's rival from his days at the SPD Academy, comes to Earth, working for Broodwing. He attacks the Rangers, taking an SPD badge from each one as a souvenir. Meanwhile, Morgana may get her ultimate wish if she can help Emperor Gruumm get the last component for his mysterious "Magnificence".
After a misunderstanding from hearing Doggie lamenting about the loss of A-Squad, the Rangers are upset to the point they're unable to get any sleep. They recall past adventures in an effort to boost their morale, and in the process make a starting observation. Meanwhile, Mora faces down the secret being inside Gruumm's Chamber of Magnifcence.
Jack slacks off on duty when he begins a romance, which quickly gets him in hot water with Commander Cruger. Soon, the Rangers are sent to Gamma Orion, following a distress signal that'll lead them to the missing A-Squad Rangers, if they can survive the experience. Meanwhile, Broodwing continues his scheme to take over the Earth with the human-lifeforce-battery operated criminal Delex, and the Magnificently brainwashed Mora bids goodbye to Cindy Sunshine.
The B-Squad SPD Rangers face the evil and far more experienced A-Squad SPD Rangers. To make things even worse, Broodwing, his three Generals, and an army of Krybots swarm the Delta Base, taking over! Meanwhile, now captive of Emperor Gruumm, Doggie Cruger encounters a familiar face from his past.
Captured by Emperor Gruumm, the Rangers get unexpected help from the person responsible for their imprisonment. Doggie faces Gruumm in a final showdown for the life of Isinia. Omni's Magnificence is finally created, and attacks Newtech City. Kat, Boom, Omega Ranger and the rest of the non-Ranger SPD cadets are all that stands in the way against a Krybot invasion of the Delta Base.
Emperor Gruumm utilizes a wormhole to pass into the past by 20 years, to 2004, in an attempt to conquer Earth without SPD interference. The Rangers must follow after him, and team-up with the year's resident team, the DinoThunder Rangers, to put a stop to him and his reluctant ally Zeltrax.
