Mardakko has stolen the Rashinban Kyutama that the Kyuranger's are using to find the Argo! The Kyurangers chase after Mardakko but she escapes through a black hole in space! It is said that 99% of those who enter a black hole do not return. However, in order to retrieve the Rashinban Kyutama, they have no choice but to go. Lucky shows no hesitation when he plunges in the black hole himself, but who he meets on the other side is...?!

- When Sen-Chan snaps D-Wappers onto Hammie, they are visibly too big for her hands. This is likely due to the props originally being made for Alienizers, portrayed by suit actors in thick rubber suits. As such, this is likely the reason why a force field-like visual effect connects Hammie's wrists to the D-Wrappers: the filmmakers recognized the error as well.
- As part of Super Hero Time, this episode aired alongside Kamen Rider Ex-Aid episode 35, Rescue the Partner!.
- Kyurangers featured in closing credits
- RyuTeiOh Combinations:
- Lucky Kyutama Luck Test
- Hint: Edamame
- Color: Green
- Kyulette Team: N/A
- This episode is a tie-in with Space Squad.
- This episode proves that Kyuranger takes place in a separate continuity from the rest of the Super Sentai Series.
- This makes Uchu Sentai Kyurangerthe first Super Sentai Series to be confirmed as taking place in it's own universe and, by extension, go by the VS World theory.
- Though Mardakko was destroyed in the mainstream Super Sentai universe without a chance to returning to the Kyuranger universe even if she regenerated herself, somehow in the following episode a fragment of her ends in the hands of Scorpio who revives her in the Kyuranger universe.
- Stinger, Balance, Raptor, and Spada don't appear transformed in this episode.
- Houji Tomasu, Marika Reimon and Tekkan Aira have a cameo in this episode, transformed in their respective Dekaranger identities, piloting the Tokusou Gattai DekaWing Robo with Sen-Chan and Umeko to keep the Black Hole open with Shou, Garu and Hammy in RyuTeiOh.
- The cold opening of this episode is reminiscent of Nero's entrance in Star Trek.
- Incidentally, both stories involve elements from their respective primary and alternate realities.
- As well as promoting the initial Space Squad double bill, this episode's events would be eventually followed by a feature-length crossover entitled Uchu Sentai Kyuranger vs. Space Squad.
