An alien named Trey came to Earth to assist the Rangers in their fight against the Machine Empire.The danger arose of the Golden powers being lost forever, unless Trey transferred them to someone else. That someone else was Jason, the original Red Ranger, back with the team, and back to action. His return as the Gold Ranger was a short lived one however, since his body couldn't handle the alien nature of the Golden powers. With the Rangers' help, Trey was reunified and he reclaimed the Golden powers.
Jason returned to action years later as the Red Ranger, joining forces with 9 other Red Rangers on a mission to the moon, to prevent the Machine Empire from using Serpentera to destroy Earth.
