Mike goes to Captain Mutiny's slave camp, wanting to free the slaves. So he allowed himself to be captured by Barbarax and taken to the slave camp. Meanwhile, Kai reads the Keonta Spell backward and an inter-dimensional portal opens, providing an escape from the Lost Galaxy. Mike befriends a slave named Haley and together they free the slaves, including her grandfather and make it to the Astro Megaship. But, Mike and Haley are stopped by Captain Mutiny, Barbarax and Deviot blocking their way to escape. So Mike chooses to stay behind and fight off Mutiny, just so the Astro Megaship could escape to the portal. He fought off Mutiny only to be defeated, himself. Just when Mike felt that all hope is lost, he received contact with the original Magna Defender's spirit, telling him to never give up because he has one final task to do. As the portal begins to close, Mike shows up in the Defender Torozord and manages to reopen it, however the Zord is destroyed in the process. Terra Venture makes it through the portal, pursued by Captain Mutiny who pilots his castle through intent on conquering the new galaxy he's found, only for Trakeena to show up who quickly destroys the castle, killing Mutiny and his crew. Mike survives, however he lost his powers in the process. Later, the spirit of the Magna Defender appears to Mike thanking him for continuing his legacy with honor.

- Terra Venture is incorrectly shown to have all its engines working.
- Mike volunteers to be captured as the villains wouldn't know who he was, however he was personally responsible for foiling Hexuba's nightmare spell (while unmorphed).
- It may be that the villains still had not actually made the connection that Mike was the Magna Defender, simply assuming that he was a plucky civilian.
- Despite having being under heavy guard previously, Leo and Kai were shown to have possession of the Galaxy Book with no explanation.
- Defender Torozord was grossly oversized in this episode, holding open the portal which was as big as Terra Venture despite having always been shown to battle inside the colony's far smaller domes.
- Considering that Terra Venture only passed through the portal after Torozord exploded, it may be that the force of its destruction expanded the portal to a size where Terra Venture could pass through it after Torozord simply stopped it closing.
- Leo recovers the unmorphed Mike floating in outer space. Mike should have died from exposure to the vacuum of space and lack of oxygen.
- This episode marks the first time in Power Rangers that a sentient zord is destroyed.
- This episode marks the return of Trakeena, Villamax & Kegler.
- This episode marks the final appearance of the Galaxy Book and the end of the Lost Galaxy arc.
- There isn't much Sentai Footage.
