* I may be alone in this, but I personally felt that the first part of "From Out Of Nowhere" (yes, ''the first part'' of the ''very first episode'') was spectacular. It sets the stage and tone for the entire season '''to a tee'''. In particular, the sequence that starts as soon as the Rangers' shuttle is docked with the Megaship outside of their control is simply astounding. They find themselves on board an [[NothingIsScarier empty ship, traversing the deserted corridors and even finding just-made food that has been abandoned]]; it's the kind of thing you'd expect from an ''Alien''-esque blockbuster movie. It sounds simple in theory, but watching it, the tension is kept flawlessly high, ESPECIALLY if you'd just finished ''Turbo'' (and back in 1998, you'd probably have been waiting for two months to see what happened after "Chase into Sapce"). And this is ''Power Rangers''. A so-called "children's show". Just...''damn''.

** Followed shortly by another CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Bulk when he rallies the citizens to enter the fray, fighting alongside the Rangers against quite frankly impossible odds. Then he throttles a Quantron with one hand.
** The fact that the rangers morphed in full view of the public in the above scene. It can be taken as an awesome emergency action, or, more likely given the context, a sign of respect: On that day, '''everyone was a ranger.'''
*** The finale: holy hell, Earth's been enslaved by the bad guys and ''Bulk and Skull'' are the BigDamnHeroes! And the rest of the episode was just as awesome, even without knowing any of the context beforehand.

Ranger.

* Can we just discuss how awesome from a villain perspective the Psycho Rangers are? Their first episode alone shows how badass they are, easily beating the rangers without breaking a sweat. To put this in perspective, they ''Almost KILL'' the Power Rangers in their first episode!
* Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfFunny: Andros is walking down the hall, happy because ThePsychoRangers have been defeated--but look! There's Psycho Red, coming right at him! After a quick, heart-stopping fight, Psycho Red removes his helmet--it's [[SixthRanger Zhane]]! Who scared the living crap out of his best friend just for the hell of it! Go Zhane!

* The scene in "The Secret of the Locket" where Astronema zaps one of her own Mooks in order to prevent it from attacking two kids and their mother has always been a [=CMoA=] for me, due in large part to the audio. During the fights leading up to it, there's a lot of generic fighting music playing, but the minute Astronema kills her own Mook, there's absolutely no music at all playing. It reflected the shock and confusion that viewers (not to mention Andros, Ecliptor, and ''Astronema herself'') were experiencing.
** Following this, in "The Rangers' Leap of Faith", Astronema does the ReverseMole turn to GambitPileup proportions, giving the Rangers a tip that leads them into a trap and then turning in a room full of mooks. She tells Darkonda to [[NeverSayDie destroy]] the Rangers and once he readies to strike he is blasted and falls down, just like in the above scene. Darkonda is then finished off by some beams from a wounded Ecliptor, who fights his way through the mooks and supports his surrogate daughter in her HeelFaceTurn. Meanwhile, the Rangers form a circle around Astronema and Ecliptor and hold off a now angry mook army that wants to tear their BigBad apart. Ecliptor does a HeroicSacrifice, holding off a few dozen Quantrons and the like so to allow Karone enough time to escape. Poor Ecliptor, I always felt he was horribly mistreated by the Zordon Wave.
* Carlos' return from his {{Ten Minute Retirement}}, where he anticipates the same position-switching trick the {{Monster Of The Week}} fooled him with earlier and jumps off Adam's shoulders to nail it with his staff.
** From the same episode, Adam morphing with his damaged original morpher. With a familiar yell of "MASTODON!", he becomes the black Mighty Morphin' ranger one more time, risking his life to do so.

* Alpha and D.E.C.A. (the Astro Megaship's computer) in "The Impenetrable Web," fighting off Ecliptor with HomeAloneAntics after he breaks into the Megaship.
* OneShotCharacter Waspicable deserves one for his {{Heel Face Turn}}, taking a hell of a barrage of energy blasts from his former king and even running against them to get his own hits in.
* Despite being a major TearJerker, the ultimate defeat of nearly all the evil forces and the ultimate sacrifice of Zordon during the climax of the "Countdown to Destruction" GrandFinale has to be, by far, ''the'' defining moment for Power Rangers as a whole.

And this is ''Power Rangers''. A so-called "children's show". Just...''damn''.
* In "Wasp with a Heart," a good-hearted monster was shot and wounded by another monster, while shielding Cassie from the blast as she'd been overpowered and was helpless . When Cassie spots the injured monster, who she had grown to feel sorry for, in immense pain she turns down-right scary. At that moment, Cassie could have probably taken down Ecliptor and Astronema by herself unmorphed.
* The first CurbStompBattle between the Space and PsychoRangers was absolutely awesome. And then T.J. actually uses strategy to fight back.
** Let's just say the PsychoRangers in GENERAL are awesome, in a villainous way. Ever since the original Green Ranger became a good guy fans have been looking forward to a REAL team of Evil Power Rangers and the Psycho Rangers did NOT disappoint, proving they weren't just one shot villains. THEY MEANT BUSINESS. Most of the fights had the team DAMN NEAR RUNNING AWAY FROM THEM and the only reason they didn't kill the team was because Astronema's plan wasn't yet finished. Yes had her plan to drain Dark Spectre been complete THE RANGERS WOULD HAVE DIED.
* As a meta example, this season single-handedly SAVED Power Rangers. Ratings had been on the decline since ''Zeo'', ''Turbo'' was loathed by audiences at the time, and ''Pokemon'' had officially taken the Saturday Morning crown. The production team, which had been divided over the show's direction during ''Turbo'', banded together to produce a truly epic last hurrah under the assumption that ''In Space'' would be the final season. ''In Space'''s ratings were the highest since the MMPR days, and the series won over older viewers who left during ''Turbo'' and younger viewers just getting into the series. The critical acclaim and rating bump were enough to keep the show on the air. Without ''In Space'', Power Rangers would likely be remembered as just another nostalgic fixture of the 90s rather than the kids action show mainstay it is today.
