* 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.

* 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.

* "Invasion of the Body Switcher" has a meta moment for Tracy Lynn Cruz, in her performance as Astronema pretending to beAshley. Cruz manages to do a pretty top notch impersonation of Melody Perkins' speech patterns and body language.
** Meanwhile, Ashley gets her own moment by tricking the monster into making her look like Astronema in order to trick Elgar into letting her go.

* This series overall saved Power Rangers from the damage ''Turbo'' had done, and ensured that it could carry on. Since then, this franchise has carried on to reach its ''twentieth'' [[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce anniversary]]. ''In Space's'' true [=CMoA=] is right there in the franchise it secured a future for. "Long live the Power Rangers" indeed.

* The serious tone of the series as a whole, and the deeper-running plot and themes, especially compared to Turbo.

* The first CurbStompBattle between the Space and PsychoRangers was absolutely awesome. And then T.J. actually uses strategy to fight back.

* 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 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 fact that the rangers morphed in full view of the public in the above scene. If you think about it, it's a massive sign of respect: ''Rangers don't hide their identities from each other.'''
