Important things that happened[edit]

  • The first part focused on Don Dogoier as the hero who slew the dragon.
  • After watching his forces defeated by the Gokaigers, Akudosu Giru agrees to Insaan's pleas of giving Damarasu another chance. Upon hearing this, Damarasu breaks from confinement by himself and before setting off to confront the pirates, he confronts Basco ta Jolokia for not killing the Gokaigers when he had the chance, but he offers to spare the privateer's life in return for his help.
  • Aboard the GokaiGalleon, the Gokaigers is shocked to find Doc in a magazine, labeled as a hero who was said to have died defeating the an evil planet-eating dragon. Doc apologizes for lying that he was a refugee from a Zangyack planet while admitting that he has no memory of doing such a thing.
  • In hopes of regaining his memory, Doc dines at a fancy restaurant with Luka, Gai, and Ahim where the story of how he joined the Gokaigers is revealed.
  • Soon after, on their way to find dessert, the pirates are attacked by Damarasu as Captain Marvelous and Joe arrive, the latter recognizing their foe. Transforming to fight him, the Gokaigers find themselves outmatched as Damarasu lives up to his reputation as the Space Empire Zangyack's greatest warrior. They attempt to fall back, but Basco and Sally block their only escape route.
  • As the others are taken out by Basco and Sally, GokaiRed is defeated by Damarasu. Basco then incinerates the others as Doc is knocked aside with Damarasu taking Captain Marvelous to have him executed, while Basco takes his Mobirate and Ranger Key.
  • Left alone, Doc is horrified that his shipmates are killed and his captain is in mortal danger.
