After its opening episodes attained tremendous viewing figures in the States, the series suffered a ratings dip that it never quite recovered from. . It has a few solid fans for the dark, almost poetic stories it told. This is the first series to actually kill good guys, although two got better and the other one got to be reunited with his son, so it was okay by him. Since then, ''Lost Galaxy'' has been favorably compared to what's seen as the better seasons; primarily ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'', ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce'', and ''Series/PowerRangersRPM''.

* BatmanGambit: Treacharon while imprisoned give Trakeena a map, to a silver goblet, to give to Scorpius. He then breaks out of jail and confronts Trakeena intending to expose her betrayal to her father. Of course this plan would compltely backfire if he wasn't certain Trakeena would retrieve the goblet herself, instead of taking the map to her father.

* IBrokeANail: This happens twice to Trakeena. The first time (back when she was still Daddy's Little Villain and more concerned with her apperances than anything else) it happens when she practices her fighting skills with some Stingwingers. One of them accidently breaks one of her nails and she angrily vaporizes the Stingwinger in retaliation. The second time it happens during her TrainingFromHell with Villamax, who simply responds to her angry reaction that he only has 9 to go then.

* LimitedWardrobe: Sure since the beginning Power Rangers has followed the "Each Ranger has a basic color to match their Ranger color" but this is the first season where the Rangers never wear anything but one outfit. Sure Kai, Mike, Kendrix, and Damon are in uniform, Maya and Karone come from another world, and Leo was a stowaway who wouldn't have thought to pack clothes but surely there was a shopping mall to buy clothes for the latter three.
** Early on Leo was a huge exception to this rule before his outfit was finally nailed down right around the time Mike takes over as the Magna Defender.

''Lost Galaxy'' occupies an interesting place in ''Power Rangers'' continuity. Starting with this season, Saban adopted the Sentai practice of producing self-contained seasons with little or no links to previous years; ''Lost Galaxy'' featured a completely new group of Rangers receiving completely new powers and carrying out missions largely independent of previous teams. Having said that, it also maintains some links to the six-year "Zordon Era" that preceded it, particularly in the presence of supporting characters, the PsychoRangers, and the [[CoolSpaceship Astro Megaship]]. In short, it was something of a PassingTheTorch moment in terms of how Power Rangers seasons would be conducted, being something of a PostscriptSeason to the Zordon Era whilst simultaneously launching the season-by-season approach. Finally, it was also the first time the show averted the "RecruitTeenagersWithAttitude" trope it named: four of the six main characters (counting the SixthRanger) already have accepted positions within the Galactic Space Alliance.

The series also was the subject of much behind the scenes controversy adaptation-wise. Despite adapting a nature themed Sentai Saban went ahead and turned it into another space theme series after the positive reception of ''In Space''. Also, problems arose with the cast as one of the Ranger actresses became ill and had to be replaced, the plan for them to bring back the ''In Space'' Pink Ranger fell through after filming her first episode, and ''she'' was replaced with yet another ''In Space'' refugee, although most feel this worked out for the better.

The series also was the subject of much behind the scenes controversy adaptation-wise. Rather than working closely with the creators of ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' to find out what kind of show ''Gingaman'' would be, Fox and Saban went ahead with the notion of another space-themed series due to the popularity of ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace''. Sadly, what they got was a nature-themed show with horses and the space vehicle zords that they thought were going to be the main Zords became the back-up Zord for the show. Also, problems arose with the cast as one of the Ranger actresses became ill and had to be replaced, the plan for them to bring back the ''In Space'' Pink Ranger fell through after filming her first episode, and ''she'' was replaced with yet another ''In Space'' refugee, although most feel this worked out for the better.

Once on Mirinoi, Mike, Kendrix, Kai, Maya and Damon pull the Quasar Sabers from their stones, fulfilling the prophecy and becoming the Power Rangers. Unfortunately, possession of the Quasar Sabers is what Scorpius' minions were after, anyway, and this leads to a fight. Mike is killed, insisting Leo [[SadisticChoice save the Quasar Saber instead of him]], and Leo becomes the Red Ranger [[ReplacementGoldfish in his brother's place]]. Scorpius takes the whole thing as a free ticket to attack Terra Venture whenever he wants to get the Sabers for himself and turns the people of Mirinoi to stone. Naturally, the Rangers choose to fight him. But when Scorpius' search turns towards a power called the Lights of Orion, things start getting more complicated...

After its opening episodes attained tremendous viewing figures in the States, the series suffered a ratings dip that made for problems between Fox and Saban. The series was pulled from the airwaves for several months before the last couple of episodes could air, in order to give the time slot to the recently debuted ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' dub. It has a few solid fans for the dark, almost poetic stories it told.

* MrFanservice: Leo, the guy has one of the most awesome shirtless scenes in Power Rangers history, got into a little JamesBondage on occasion and is depicted as being a bit of a flirty romantic and good with kids, and he's played by one of the best-looking men to ever put on the red spandex.
