Whilst investigating some energy readings they found, Maya and Kendrix are ambushed by Furio, Trakeena and Stingwingers. All hope looks lost, but then the other Rangers come with their new Astro Cycles and rescue them. Furio then shows the Rangers a large box, which has Mike inside. Leo goes after them and finds the box, but Mike isn't in there. The other Rangers come and find Leo watching Furio and Trakeena; they make a plan which gives Leo a chance to free Mike. Mike tells Leo of the Lights Of Orion and that they need to get them before Furio can. They go to the cave where they are kept, Leo finds the box, but then is attacked by Mike afterwards who takes the box and leaves Leo in the cave alone. Mike turns out to be a monster named Mutantrum who then gives the box to Furio, but is stopped by Leo. Mutantrum grows and the Rangers call upon their megazord for help, who destroys the monster. Furio gets the box, only to discover that there was nothing in it.
