The eighth season of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', successor series to ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy,'' and adapted from ''Series/KyukyuSentaiGoGoV'. It was the first ''Power Rangers'' series to be completely independent from its predecessor, and to drop the secret identity trope. Lightspeed Rescue was a government-sponsored agency, dedicated to protecting the city of Mariner Bay from the return of Queen Bansheera and her minions.

''Lightspeed'' is somewhat divisive among the fandom; some consider it to be one of the better seasons, while others consider it to be sub-par. Most people cite the villains and some of the acting as weak points, while the storyline and action sequences are often claimed to be the show's saving grace. The fact it was succeeded by [[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce what is considered by some to be the best season]] probably didn't help matters much. In general this season is considered the weakest of the Judd Lynn era.

* ShotForShotRemake: Zigzagged. While the season used most some of the plot from ''[[Series/RescueSentaiGoGoFive GoGoFive]]'', it also has given the characters their own personalities which are not too similar to their Japanese counterparts AND have its own many original plots as well (specifically: the Titanium Ranger, the Tomb of Forever, Bansheera's fate, etc.).

** There was even one episode, called "Yesterday Again", where Carter cannot come to the other Rangers' aid on time because of his difficulties in piloting his Mobile Armored Vehicle (which started to malfunction, on top of that) and actually witnesses the other Rangers [[spoiler: getting ''[[KilledOffForReal killed]]'' by Olympius (yes, you read that correctly; and it was ''onscreen'' -- but no blood). And no, they did not pull a [[PowerRangersLostGalaxy Kendrix]], if you know what we [[BackFromTheDead mean]]. Luckily, and oddly enough, his malfunctioning vehicle gave him the chance to do some time-travelling, thus repeating that same day, which allowed him to prevent their deaths.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical:
** The Supertrain Megazord. While it's larger and more powerful than zords it carries, the Supertrain Megazord required a lot of power to operate, and overloads would often harm the Rangers, until Ms. Fairweather stabilized the Megazord's power output.
** The Lifeforce Megazord. It was potentially more powerful than the Supertrain Megazord, but its power source was drawn from the Rangers' LifeForce, making it a weapon of very last resort. The Rangers are forced to use it when all of the other Megazords were either destroyed or disabled.

* MythologyGag: Combined with FreezeFrameBonus; if you look closely a few times in the Aquabase's Transport Bay (where the Rangers often head out to the Train Bay, or in the Rescue Rover), you'll see a small green robot standing around with the Lightspeed emblem for a face. This was Mint, from GoGoV; there he assisted the Rangers by analyzing things, or by piloting the Rail Rescues when they couldn't.

* AllYourBaseAreBelongToUsAllYourBaseAreBelongToUs: The Batlings take over the Lightspeed Aquabase. Rather uniquely for a Power Rangers series, the Rangers responded by turning the trope on its head and invading Bansheera's temple for the finale, destroying her!
