In the present day, AdventurerArchaeologist Andrew Hartford has at last found the crown - but the discovery frees the brothers, Moltor and Flurious, from their respective prisons. Realizing that they and other villains would come seeking the crown's power, Hartford uses his wealth to assemble and equip a team to track down and claim the crown's five gemstones before they fall into the wrong hands. He assembles a team of four people with unique histories - Rose Ortiz, a former ChildProdigy and a teacher with incredible intellect, Ronny Robinson, an F1 driver, Will Aston, a notorious thief, and Dax Lo, a Hollywood stuntman with dreams of acting. Hartford grants them their Overdrive Morphers and one by one enhances their DNA to have genetic powers. Hartford initially intends to take on the Red Ranger role himself, but he's prevented from doing so by an attack from the villains. His sheltered son Mack transforms himself to save him, earning him the last spot on the team.

* {{Fiction 500}}: Andrew Hartford has a mansion with 27 bathrooms complete with a secret cave underneath with genetic scramblers, ranger technology and zords, all which he basically designed for his own private use rather than needing to have it go public in any way. He owns a film studio, had Will break into his own bank, has pioneered holographic recording technology and even [[spoiler: built his own absurdly lifelike robot]] just for his own use, and even has time to spend "twice the net worth of new mexico" just to go treasure hunting in his spare time. It's pretty crazy.

* RecruitingTheCriminal: Will. It's never spelled out wither or not he's a ReformedCriminal when the series starts, but during his ten-minute retirement in ''Once A Ranger'', he's shown working as a security consultant. It takes a thief and all that.

* ShoutOut: Every monster is designed to look like a previous Megazord, albeit in abstract (this is a carry-over from Boukenger, which was a big milestone celebration series).
** When the rangers go to St. Lucia (in the Caribbean), they talk about how it's haunted by the ghost of Brownbeard the Pirate. Dax says, "A ghost pirate? That's so cool they should make a movie franchise about that!". Since Power Rangers was owned by Disney at the time, it's a excuse to promote "Pirates Of The Caribbean".

* {{Tagline}}: On Creator/ABCKids, various commercials for ''Power Rangers Operation Overdrive'' used the phrase "Kick into overdrive!" at one point or another, sounding similar to the "Shift into Turbo!" [[ByThePowerOfGreyskull morphing call]] from ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo''.

The series also contained the [[MilestoneCelebration 15th Anniversary special]] "Once A Ranger" where a new villain comes into play, the son of [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd]], Thrax. Targeting the [[MetaOrigin Morphing Grid]] itself, they manage to cut the Operation Overdrive Rangers off from their powers. To stop their plan of decimating the entire grid and eliminating all Power Rangers, the Sentinel Knight [[CrisisCrossover commissions Rangers from previous seasons]] to form a new team (all of the Disney-era shows, with one before they took over) [[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce Xander Bly]], [[Series/PowerRangersSPD Bridge Carson]], [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Kira Ford]], [[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm Tori Hanson]], and [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Adam Park]] (most characters were {{Ensemble Darkhorse}}s, the return of JohnnyYongBosch especially was appreciated). In addition, Alpha Six takes on a role. The two-parter involves the Operation Overdrive Rangers worrying about being replaced.
