Five brave teens are sent on an exciting global treasure hunt filled with mind-crunching puzzles to decode, action, adventure and spectacular battles, on a quest to find the "Corona Aurora," a crown said to bestow ultimate power to the wearer. Dark forces from the past awaken and search for the missing crown, which is encrusted with five magnificent jewels from seven galaxies, which will make evil unstoppable. The jewels must be found and secured or evil will wear the Corona Aurora. Our world and the entire universe's fate rests in the hands of "Power Rangers Operation Overdrive."

While on an archaeological excursion in Africa, billionaire/adventurer Andrew Hartford unearthed the crown portion of what he believes is the Corona Aurora. The jewels of the crown were missing from the corona. Upon returning home, Standish is visited by the crown's ghostly Templar Knight who assured him he has found the crown, but in doing so he was now responsible for protecting it. If the crown falls into the wrong hands, it can mean disaster not only for Earth but the entire universe.

Now Hartford must scour the globe and find the five jewels that were scattered across the Pangea many eons before man even existed. He uses his intelligence and wealth to construct the technology and machinery, including morphing Trackers, which he entrusts to an elite team of specialists to track down the jewels and save the universe. He assembles Power Rangers Operation Overdrive. (Info from the OO Press Release).

Moltor offered him a deal to do his bidding and he'll turn him back.

Mack and Tyzonn show up at the base. Mack explains that they can trust him, and that Tyzonn is going to help find the Touru Diamond. Tyzonn pours lemonade on the Parchment. The citric acid in the lemonade reveals the longitude and latitude location of the diamond.

The two are defeated by the DriveMax Ultrazord.

Norg brings Flurious the bodies of Mig and Benglo. Flurious places the Gyros inside the Fearcats. The two beasts are revived with more power then before. Flurious orders them to obey him. He sends them off to San Angeles to destroy the rangers. Benglo and Mig play along... for now.

Tyzonn informs them that he wants to join the team, but can't. He explains that many years ago, he was part of an elite team, Intergalactic Emergency Responders, but something happened. They were called to a cave-in. Innocent people were caught in rubble. He sent his team into the cave on a search-and-rescue mission while he stayed outside and searched for other injured people. They came out carrying the cavers with them, one was very upset. Tyzonn then learned that the Fearcats were blasting the cave from the inside. Tyzonn's job was to rescue everyone and not just the innocents so he sent his team back in, assuming that the Fearcats were trapped inside. But the Fearcats had escaped somehow. They blasted the cave, trapping the four rescuers inside. Tyzonn tells them that rescuing was his life, but he will never jeopardize another team.

As Tyzonn is leaving, Ronny runs after him and explains that what happened wasn't his fault.

The rangers arrive in the city to find that Benglo and Mig are back. The Gryos transform the two Fearcats into more powerful Fearcats, with new battle armor and weapons.
