Power Rangers Beast Morphers
After years of waiting, it is now just hours away from when Mayor Adam Daniels will pull the switch for the first time for clean Morph-X Energy to flow from the Power Rangers’ Morphin Grid into the Morph-X Tower network throughout the city. They are tapping into the energy source that gives the Power Rangers their powers. They plan to use clean Morph-X Energy to power the entire city including automobiles.
At the city’s youth center – Riptide Gym, Blaze instructs some students during a karate training session. Blaze is wearing a bracelet of some kind. One of the students, Devon doesn’t follow along as he wants to learn more challenging moves. So Blaze attacks but Devon fends him off. Also there wearing bracelets are Ravi and Roxy. The Mayor shows up at Riptide Gym to take his son for a ride – Devon Daniels.
Riding in a limo, Adam Daniels has a talk with his son. Devon was supposed to be at a job interview that his dad set up for him but he went to the gym instead. Devon learns that his dad is going to Grid Battleforce Headquarters where it is rumored to have this incredible battle simulator that is unbeatable but his dad tells him that he can’t go. His dad explains, that’s where they tapped into the Morphin Grid and he believes the whole Morph-X experiment is a dangerous mistake and doesn’t want Devon to go near the place. But Devon uses his phone to sneak a photo of his dad’s Security Approved Visitor ID Pass.
The limo driver drops the Mayor off at Grid Battleforce Headquarters and is to drive his son home. But Devon exits the limo to enter the building as he loves a challenge.
As two security guards – Betty Burke and Ben Burke, overly perform a body scan of the Visitor (the Mayor), Devon sneaks inside using the photo on his phone to get pass the scanners.
Zoey Reeves from the laundry department helps the Mayor get pass the guards. She trained to be a Battleforce cadet but got cut. She loves helping out and solving problems.
Commander Shaw leads the Mayor into the main laboratory where she shows him Morph-X. Nate Silva, the child prodigy and chief scientist at Grid Battleforce explains that it exists as pure energy in the Morphin Grid, but he refined it into a liquid. Nate came to Grid Battleforce when he was just 6 years old. At 10, he discovered how to tap into the Power Rangers’ Morphin Grid.
Devon strolls into the Morphing lab and looks around. Commander Shaw, Nate and the Mayor enter the Morphing lab so Devon hides. Nate reveals to the Mayor what they have been creating in secret – When the Mayor activates the Morph-X Tower network for the first time, Morph-X flowing through the lab will combine with animal DNA then flow into their three human subjects, mutating their DNA to create Power Rangers. Nate then reveals the Rangers’ equipment – Beast-X Blasters, Beast-X Sabers, Beast-X Morphers and Morph-X Keys, and reveals they also have transporters. The Mayor is impressed, though the identities of the three human subjects are kept secret from him. The Mayor leaves for the ceremony.
Devon discovers the three human subjects are Blaze, Roxy and Ravi. He then sees an avatar of a cobra, a virus in their computer network. He warns them of the avatar but is placed in a holding cell. Commander Shaw tells Nate to run a full check on the computer system.
Roxy and Ravi were a couple and still want to be together but the rules say, ‘Rangers can’t date Rangers.’
No virus is detected in the system and the countdown continues. The Morphin Grid interface is activated and Morph-X flow is initiated. The Mayor pulls the switch.
Nate and his assistants begin Morph-X DNA reconstruction for the three subjects but the virus – Evox, takes over the system and infects the Morph-X. Evox wants the Morphin Grid.
The holding cell malfunctions and Devon escapes.
An evil Ranger avatar of Blaze is created and the real Blaze falls to the floor unconscious. Devon and Zoey enter the Morphing lab. An avatar of Roxy is created and Roxy falls unconscious. Devon interrupts the process before an avatar of Ravi could be created.
Devon, Zoey and Ravi fight the two evil avatar Rangers. But avatar Roxy captures them and attempts to have three more avatars created but Nate rescues them and initiates the Morph sequence and a new team of Power Rangers is created. Devon is the Red Ranger. Zoey is the Yellow Ranger. And Ravi is the Blue Ranger.
The animal DNA inside the Rangers gives them special abilities. Mutated with Cheetah DNA, the Red Ranger can move at extremely fast speeds. Mutated with Jackrabbit DNA, the Yellow Ranger can jump at great heights, higher than other Rangers. Mutated with Gorilla DNA, the Blue Ranger can increase his strength.
Nate and the Rangers use the transporters to transport the evil avatars away to another dimension.
Blaze and Roxy can’t be awakened as they are linked with their avatars through the Morphin Grid and the only way to save them is to destroy their avatars.
Ravi is Commander Shaw’s son. Ravi leads Devon and Zoey to the battle simulator…
