This is the first Power Rangers series to not be a continuation of the previous series, with its own new cast and story. With the annual suit change that began with Power Rangers: Zeo and the annual cast and story change starting with this series, this is the first series to follow the practice set by the Super Sentai series. However, there were allusions to Zordon being the source of the Galaxy Power Rangers' powers. Also, the Space Power Rangers and Psycho Rangers returned. In addition, Paul Schrier and Jack Banning reprised their roles as Bulk and Professor Phenomenus, respectively, for an episode. Alpha 6 and the Astro Megaship were used again, and Melody Perkins reprised her role as Karone midway through the series. This is also the first season where the zords were actually alive and that a ranger died (though she was revived later).
Thus, the Lost Galaxy season serves as something of a transitional series and also a unique one in Power Rangers history: it is neither completely self-contained nor a direct continuation; it's a bit of both. The seasons would not begin to have completely independent stories until the following series, Lightspeed Rescue.
There are two different ideas in continuity with the Lost Galaxy series: it is believed to be set either one year, or five years after Countdown to Destruction.
According to trademark documents, the original title for the series was slated to be Power Rangers: Space Jungle.
In the fictional universe of Lost Galaxy, five teens from the space colony Terra Venture are seeking a new world like Earth. They later meet a jungle girl named Maya, who leads them to the five mystical swords known as the Quasar Sabers, on her home planet of Mirinoi. After pulling the sabers out of a stone, one of the teens, Mike Corbett, falls into a crevasse, but not before passing his saber onto his younger brother Leo Corbett. With the Quasar Sabers, the teens transform into the Galaxy Power Rangers, and use them to battle space villains from two different parts of the galaxy. These villains include Scorpius, Trakeena, Deviot, and Captain Mutiny. Along the way, they discover several zords known as Galactabeasts, and make an ally in the form of the mysterious Magna Defender, a galactic warrior who later dies, but not before revealing his host body is Mike Corbett, and passes the Magna Defender powers to him. When Deviot revives the evil Psycho Rangers, the Rangers of Power Rangers in Space show up to aid the Galaxy Rangers in destroying them. During this saga, Kendrix Morgan, the Pink Ranger, sacrifices herself to protect the Pink Space Ranger and Terra Venture from Psycho Pink. Karone, sister of the Red Space Ranger and former evil princess Astronema, is given the powers of the Pink Galaxy Ranger from Kendrix, who appears as a spirit, and joins the remaining 5 rangers in the battle to protect Terra Venture.
The Zords in Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy were actually Galactabeasts, ancient creatures that have their powers imbued within the Galaxy Sabers. They could transform into the Galactazords, and form a Megazord. The Magna Defender had his own Zord that could make him grow to Zord size, and then combine with him. The other zords were once Galactabeasts that were transformed into robots.
