** Aisha probably took care of the paperwork once time righted itself, so her parents no doubt know that she's doing volunteer work in Africa (Alpha probably could forge the neccesary documents to make it seem like an official program or something). Tanya's parents are IndianaJones style archaeologists, so she probably contacted them after time righted itself asking for money for an apartment; they show up in Zeo and don't seem to mind that he daughter is on a different continent than where they left her. Also, given that time warping was involved, its possible that Tanya had been in Africa in the '80s, and thus when time was reversed, but had been in California in the present time. [[MST3KMantra Don't think about it too hard.]]

** Leaving Angel Grove meant they lost that option of cover - living in a town not under attack by monsters, they couldn't explain their sudden absence to go fight the monsters. Makes it much easier for someone, for example, to piece together 'every time there's a monster attack being reported happening out of town, you suddenly disappear.' At least when everyone has to evacuate for a monster attack, it's easier to hide your disappearance in the panic of the civilians.

* In the MMPR episode "Blue Ranger Gone Bad," one of their classmates makes a statue of Billy for an art project and Zedd turns it into an evil Billy clone. Why wasn't anyone concerned about the fact that a girl they barely knew made a statue of Billy. I know he had a crush on her, but it's still kind of creepy.

* So why was Damon so convinced that the Megaship was "a museum, not a spaceship"? I mean, this is the season after the Power Rangers had been using it as their base of operations and Megazord, it would regularly come down to Earth and do battle with the monsters. It's not even like Alpha or Andros had rendered it inoperable or anything, as moments later, they do turn it back on to full power, which means it was clearly kept in space-worthy conditions. And yet he's the 'expert'?
* Why did Leo have to stowaway on Terra Venture? His brother has a high position, reporting directly to the Commander. While there is the matter of resources for a colony vessel unable to restock with any kind of ease, why are the requirements for joining the crew apparently so exacting that they won't allow the crew's families to join?
** And, in blunt terms, why, apparently, is the old woman who Leo retrieves the pass for prioritized over an able-bodied young person? Based on her attire, she appears to be just a civilian, traveling to the 'new world,' not apparently any kind of scientist (as we see Kendrix and other scientific staff already aboard Terra Venture), and yet she's been given a ticket, while Leo isn't?

* That's what bother you? In Super Sentai, it has been going on for 40 years. The citizens living in Japan I mean. They have the Super Sentai, Kamen Riders, Space Sheriffs, etc. to protect them. But anyway, it is pointless to move from places to places whenever there are monster attacks because it is very and I mean extremely expensive to do so. Maybe the billionaires and all those people won't be affected but eventually their income will drain out from moving too much. Might as well spend money in the same place than move away, spend money there, gets attacked, move away again, spend money there again, get attacked again, etc.

*** That doesn't explain cases when they don't even mention the attacks from the previous year. In any case, it's been inconsistent since Ninja Storm. In that, Power Rangers were considered comic book characters. This was the first full Disney/New Zealand season and the line was probably used to make a break from the past. After that, previous team's existence is usually confirmed in some way. In Jungle Fury, Casey said, "Who hasn't?" when asked if they'd heard of them and Theo said he wanted to be one since he was a little kid. The whole thing is something of a sticking point with Linkara.

** Budget? SPD is an official agency, so they must be tax funded in some way. Since the Red Ranger is officially the superior officer, it's likely the budget only allowed for one balltizer and it was keyed to the senior officer on the team.

** Most likely, the won't mention it at all. However, the best thing is to just use comic book time. Spider-Man has been around since the sixties but his origin is pretty much always "10 years ago" no matter what year it is. They still mention the current year, president, make current pop culture references, etc. Likewise, SPD is always 20 years in the future.

** You underestimate modern military might. Those squads of Humans won't be attacking head on, they would be hitting from a distance, both with small arms and artillery if need be. Can those mooks and Monsters of the Week have a counter for air power. Also those spaceships would be attacked as the world powers of Earth would modify nuclear ICBMs to reach orbital atmosphere.
