Reid Stories: Power Rangers Battle and VECTO Chapter 1.1

Here's a classic Mighty Morphin Power Rangers battle:

"Power Rangers is a long-running American entertainment and merchandising franchise built around a live action children's television series featuring teams of costumed heroes. Produced first by Saban Entertainment, later by BVS Entertainment, and currently by SCG Power Rangers LLC, the television series takes much of its footage from the Japanese tokusatsu Super Sentai, produced by Toei Company.[2] Its first entry, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, debuted on August 28, 1993, and helped launch the Fox Kids programming block of the 1990s, during which it catapulted into popular culture along with a line of action figures and other toys by Bandai.[3]" - Wikipedia

Here's where you can find the first series: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Complete Series.

And here's my VECTO scene of the week:

(Previously: Vecto questions why his friend Gyro had to die and blames Morphaal for it. He now learns that Morphaal has been revived. The scene switches to a new area.)

"Morphaal's back," Botland whispered. "I can't believe it."

He stood before a monochrome metallic door at the center of a dark hallway. His solid red powersuit covered his entire body--including his head--like a thick work glove. It appeared threaded with a leather type texture, about an inch thick from his chest and torso. A black stripe rolled down his sides, curving with his muscles.

If true, that Morphaal was alive, they'd have no choice but to track him down and kill him--for good this time, he thought.

He was flanked by two companions, one a fully clad cybernetic-armored entity known as Crysilis and the other a fully-armored ex-commander named Streamline.

"Any day now," Crysilis said. "Wouldn't want to keep them waiting."

Crysilis' cybernetic armor was shiny, splashed with a variety of blues. Two antennas slowly retreated into the sides of his blockish helmet as he stared blankly at the door through his visor, then he dropped his head in boredom.

"Exactly. What are you waiting for?" Streamline said as he adjusted the strap to his Omega Blaster Rifle that hung across his back. "I'm ready to battle."

Shiny medals and insignias adorned Streamline's battle-worn, plated armor. The armor had been black once upon a time, before decades of blood stains had left it a muddy brown. He, too, wore a fully enclosed helmet.

Botland was placid, staring at the door, tracing his finger across it. At last, he nodded in agreement. He pressed his finger against the door and shot a laser through it. The beam didn't come from any visible device. It came from his gloved finger, piercing the reinforced plating like needle through butter. Slowly, he guided his finger in an arch, the laser screeching through the sealed door.

Sparks reflected from Crysilis' light-blue visor as he watched, but he held no weapon for their expected greeters. Nor did it appear that Botland had any.

Streamline was loaded with them. He moved his Omega Blaster Rifle to his side and lifted its strap over his head to rest on his shoulder. Then he removed his disrupter gun from its side holster to inspect it, twirling it in his hand briefly.

"Do you think they'll talk?" he asked the leader.

Botland paused for a moment and looked at Streamline. "They have no choice."

"And if he's not alive, after all?" Streamline asked.

"We'll find out, regardless," Crysilis interjected.

Botland circled his finger back up from the bottom, finishing the makeshift entrance.

(Who is behind the door? What will they found out? Find out more in the next installment of VECTO!)
