Power Rangers Time Force is a television series and the ninth season of the Power Rangers franchise, based on the 24th Super Sentai series Mirai Sentai Timeranger, running for 40 half-hour episodes from February to November 2001.[1][2] It was the last season to be distributed by Saban Entertainment.

Originally, a Time Force film was planned,[3] but ultimately went unproduced in light of the commercial failure of Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie and the purchase of the franchise by Disney. However, Buena Vista Home Entertainment did release the series' final four episodes as a film-length home video in 2002 entitled The End of Time. A video game based on the series was released in November 2001 for PlayStation, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance.


In the year 3000, Time Force is a police agency that deals with the crimes of mutants, outcasts of society who have developed super powers. Ransik, one of the most dangerous of the mutants, is arrested and sentenced to life for his crimes including murder and the plan to travel back in time to take over the world. However, after sentencing, he escapes and manages to go back in time to 2001, but kills Alex Drake, the Red Time Force Ranger, in the process. Alex's fiancée Jen Scotts, as well as Time Force members Lucas Kendall, Katie Walker, and Trip Regis, decide to break protocol and go back in time after Ransik. However, upon arriving in 2001, they find that the rest of their Chrono Morphers are locked, and cannot be used until someone with Alex's DNA uses the Red Ranger morpher. To that end, they travel to the town of Silver Hills, Washington, and find Alex's ancestor Wes Collins, the son of billionaire tech businessman Albert Collins, who unlocks the Morphers and then helps them battle Ransik's army of mutants as the Time Force Power Rangers. However, Wes does not initially see eye-to-eye with Jen, who is still upset over Alex's death.

As Ransik continues his quest for total domination of Earth, archaeologists discover a box that, unknown to them, contains the Quantum Ranger Morpher and powers. Both Ransik and the Rangers are well aware of its contents, and make attempts to retrieve it. This leads to the team crossing paths with the Silver Guardians, a private security force organized by Wes's father to make a profit protecting the city's wealthy citizens, and the box eventually falls into the hands of Silver Guardians member, Eric Myers, Wes' old rival from prep school. Eric activates the power, and becomes the Quantum Ranger. Eric, however, becomes cocky and irresponsible with his power, forcing Wes and the Rangers to at first, try to get it back from him; however, Eric soon learns the responsibility of using the Quantum Powers and becomes the leader of the Silver Guardians as the Quantum Ranger, and eventually becomes an ally to the Rangers.

Eventually, the Rangers begin receiving help from an unseen ally from the future in the form of the Time Shadow Megazord. Soon, this ally arrives in 2001 and reveals himself to be Alex, stating that he is alive because something the Rangers have done in the present has altered the future, and that he has returned to fix it. Alex reveals to Wes what was meant to happen in the original timeline and encourages him to take action to set it right. Wes reluctantly agrees, and relinquishes control of his Morpher to Alex so he can take care of his father's business while his father lays gravely injured in the hospital after being attacked by Ransik. Alex then briefly leads the team, but his relationship with the Rangers becomes strained when they realize Alex has changed. Alex eventually realizes that Wes is the true Red Ranger and having destroyed his relationship with Jen, returns the Morpher and returns to the future, but not before he uses future tech to heal Wes's father.

When Ransik makes his final assault on Earth, with a powerful army in large amounts, Alex orders the Rangers to return to the future, for fear that if they hesitate, they may not be able to return at all. Wes, however, would have to remain behind, since he's not from 3000. The Rangers refuse, and fight Ransik alongside Wes, who, knowing his friends can't stay, forces them into returning to 3000, leaving only himself and Eric to stop Ransik, or die trying. When the Rangers return to the future, they learn that Silver Hills was saved, but Wes died in the process. The Rangers are ordered to have their minds erased of their memories from 2001, and encouraged to resume their lives. Angered, Jen returns Alex's engagement ring, and the Rangers return to 2001 to help Wes and Eric. During the final battle, Ransik accidentally injures his daughter Nadira and, ashamed that his hatred of humans almost costed him the one person he cared about, surrenders to the Rangers. Right before the Rangers return Ransik and Nadira to the future, Wes and Jen, having soothed over their initially rocky relationship, profess their love for one another. As the Rangers depart, Wes's father states that he will be offering the Silver Guardians' services for free now, and offers to let Wes lead them. Wes accepts, on the condition that Eric co-leads the Guardians with him, which he accepts, and Wes brings the series to a close with a final remark. "I think the future looks pretty bright."

Ransik prepares to attack the city. Alex orders the Time Force Rangers to return to the future, as the Trixyrium Crystals are causing temporal disruptions, telling them that if they don't leave now, they might not be able to return to their own time. The Rangers refuse and try to prevent the attack. Wes knows that his friends can't stay in the present and has a plan to send them back. Wes forces the other Rangers back to their own time with the plan to fight to the death to save the city, making him and Eric responsible for defending it. Meanwhile, Gluto finds where Frax is hiding and informs Ransik. While apprehending Frax, Ransik sees his latest robot, Doomtron, and plans to make one final use of Frax. Meanwhile, Nadira learns the value of humanity when she and Trip help deliver a baby.

In the future, the Rangers discover what happened; the city was ultimately saved, but Wes lost his life fighting for it. They're ordered to have their minds erased of their adventures to adjust back to their lives in their own time. However, they're unwilling to give up their memories and decide to go back to help Wes. Jen gives Alex back her engagement ring, and breaks up with him, but not without Alex telling the Rangers how to go back to 2001. Eric gets injured, so Wes is left alone to fight the Cyclobot army, armed with Eric's Quantum Morpher and Quantum Defender. Meanwhile, Ransik has Frax reprogrammed, so he no longer remembers anything about being human or being born as Dr. Ferricks, but not before he desperately tells Nadira that she doesn't have to hate humans. When she learns about Frax's brainwashing, she becomes disenchanted with her father's mission.

As the battle with Ransik's army rages on, the other Rangers arrive and temporarily disable Doomtrom. After the Rangers defeat the Cyclobot army, Wes, now in control of Q-Rex, neutralizes its Trixyrium Crystal with the Quantum Defender, stopping the time disruptions and allowing him to use it on Doomtron and Frax, destroying them both. Nadira mourns Frax' death, but Ransik berates her and pushes her aside. The Rangers then battle Ransik but are overpowered. During the fight, Ransik accidentally shoots Nadira, who was protecting a baby after changing her opinion on humans, and uses the baby to convince Ransik that humans aren't so bad. Ransik willingly surrenders to the Rangers, and the Rangers have to return to the future without Wes to their great sadness. Then, Wes and Jen confess their love for each other. With the other Rangers gone, Mr. Collins offers his son command of the Silver Guardians who will protect the city for free. Wes agrees as long as Eric is his co-commander, which he agrees to.
