Absolution

Yes, I was a fan of Power Rangers growing up. And as a matter of fact, I might actually be regaining my previously-lost interest in the series, as it nears Legendary Wars, aka "fanservicesplosion" as I've nicknamed it (but to be fair, I'd be crazy not to look it up once it's out XD). But the truth, no matter is, is that even though you're "always a Ranger", you need someplace to think your strategies and analyze your opponents, as well as just someplace where you can reconvene and rest for the day after beating up a tough giant monster with your own giant robot. As such, I'll begin the PR lists by analyzing Command Centers. 

The criteria is based on: design, protection, location, commodity, and utility, however diversified the latter is.

5 - Command Center/Power Chamber, Mighty Morphin to Turbo
Design: 8/10
Protection: 4/10
Location: 7/10
Commodity: 3/10
Utility: 7/10


The first command center. Now naturally, it serves its function well as being what the title implies. But being simple, in this case, comes with a few prices. For starters, it's not exactly a place you'd go for absolute refuge, knowing that the place is not exactly cloaked or even that shielded, but rather just distant. Aside from thermal shields, I didn't hear anything about a cloaking device or anything. The storming of the command center, at least, would mark one of the series' archetypes that happens often during the season finales, and an iconic moment in the show, like most of the first Saban seasons on their own.


4 - Animarium, Wild Force
Design: 7/10
Protection: 7/10
(depending on the number of Wild Zords present)
Location: 8/10
Commodity: 5/10
Utility: 7/10


The floating city of Col-- I mean, the floating island named Animarium, once part of Turtle Cove, floats over the clouds and houses the Wild Force Rangers' Zords, which are all sentient animal-like bio-mechanical creatures with decent power of their own. In terms of protection from usual forces, it's VERY hard to enter it. Very hard, however, doesn't mean fully safe, since it can still be invaded by a few of the Orgs, like Toxica and Master Org himself in the climax. Aside from that point, however, while it can also be very accommodating (think camping, only at a temple within a jungle, and with the guard dog being a lion and several other ferocious animals), it also IS hard to reach and locate from a civilian point of view. So I don't really see footsoldiers coming up, I guess that's ok.


3 - Hartford Manor, Operation Overdrive
Design: 7/10
Protection: 4/10
Location: 7/10
Commodity: 8/10
Utility: 6/10


Tired of your old cave command center or an observatory somewhere in Israel? Well come on over to Andrew Hartford's manor and make yourself at home! The season you'll be presented in might end up sucking harder than a straw, but at the very least you'll have all the commodity you'd need, being a Power Ranger and all. Along with a top command basement, you also have the rights to a butler, a pool, hammock and specialized bedrooms, as well as a relatively remote household that makes tracking hard, even if that serves to compensate for the IMMENSELY easy-to-break vault holding the jewels of the crown macguffin you're looking for, all over the world! Come to Hartford's! Where our Black Ranger will later prove to be a MAJOR heartless scum for stealing from sick children. (A/N: Look up "Samuell Benta steals from Power Morphicon" on Google and you'll see what I mean.)


2 - Astro Megaship, In Space
Design: 9/10
Protection: 8/10
Location: 10/10
Commodity: 7/10
Utility: 9/10


A command center that moves? Good. A command center that defends itself with lasers AND by becoming a Megazord with only two components? Great. A command center that lets you access the farthest reaches of the galaxy and maybe even beyond that? Awesome! A command center that gives you AI-piloted protection, of simple design, and so familiarizing you grow a bond with it like it's a member of the family that you now have to save the world, and then later becomes a secondary command center for the incoming Ranger team? COUNT ME IN!


1 - Terra Venture Colony, Lost Galaxy
Design: 9/10
Protection: 9/10
Location: 10/10
Commodity: 10/10
Utility: 8/10


So what can POSSIBLY top a starship with a homely AI and a bumbling robot sidekick? Why, a GIANT TOWN AND GREEN AREA SECTORS inside a starship! Maybe you won't get the homely AI, but you still have the bumbling robot! And besides, for all of the improvements that the Megaship gave to the Rangers in terms of localization, Terra Venture takes that concept and cranks it up to 11. A dome-city colony with environment sectors divided in their own domes, its own specialized defense team, and powerful engines that are lasting and resilient (until season finale). You don't even need to get away from home to use it! Your home IS the command center, or at least inside it on the dome city upstairs. Which also allows for snack bars and shopping malls, constantly restocked each time the colony has to restock on friendly planets, or when it isn't being attacked by Trakeena. Heck, if you're tired of going to town, settle down at the bridge for a coffee or juice provided by beloved fan favorite Farkas Bulkmeyer and Professor Phenomenus, or enjoy the accommodating living quarters! Come see space and its immenseness today! ...Or at least until you have a REALLY well shot crash scene at a distant planet's moon.

Icon by :iconpoolvosje:

What can I say?? I do it for the fans. To show them that you CAN accept the new stuff, even if it backs away a little from the main plot. You don't have to hate it! Do it like me and endure it! Search something you like about the game. Or just don't say anything. Writing fan-fiction also works :)

And I, being Brazilian, speak 100% portuguese. Whoever told whoever's reading this that we speak Spanish, that's a common mistake, and you have all the right to assume that.

Current Residence: Brazil, and that's all I'm gonna say about it.
Favourite genre of music: Anything BUT Brazilian funk..
Favourite photographer: I don't know any photographers.
Favourite style of art: Literature and manga.
Favourite cartoon character: XANA from Code Lyoko. Jeremie is cool, too...
Personal Quote: "Every game is an experience. Live yours today!"

LTNS, Speeds. Given your permission, I might do a crossover with my OCs, MLP and your characters. Imagine their reactions.
