This article is about a/an episode in Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue.

A Matter of Trust is the fifth episode of Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue.


Dana questions her father's faith in her abilities as a Ranger when he sends her on a seemingly unimportant assignment as the other Rangers are sent to guard a fuel cell. When one of Diabolico's monsters named Fireor turns up the heat in Mariner Bay, she discovers that the Rangers were guarding a decoy, and the real fuel cell's safety lies in her hands. She escapes Vypra and gets the fuel cell to the Aquabase, in just enough time to help her friends destroy the monster. Back at the Aquabase, Dana apologizes to her father for her behavior.



  • This episode marks the only mention of Dana's mother and Captain Mitchell's wife (what happened to her is not stated, although she is implied to have died).
  • Fireor seems to be smarter than the average monster the Rangers face, immediately guessing that Dana would have the power cell once he realized she wasn't there and that the others were guarding a fake.
  • This is one of the few times in the series in which a monster ends up being destroyed by his or her own attack.
  • Third episode in a row which Ms. Fairweather doesn't appear in.


  • The Rangers (sans Dana) escorted Dr. Hanson and the case supposedly containing the dangerous fuel cell in the Rescue Rover despite the fact an open top vehicle would provide them with little, if any, protection from attack. Although that didn't matter as the box didn't actually have the fuel cell.
