Nate develops new technology from a captured Gigadrone and Devon struggles with fully trusting his team.
- An Aesop: Trust your teammates' suggestions as their ideas can help you in the long run.
- Awesome, but Impractical: Devon's rocket looks cool, but the placement of the wings made it fly out of control when launched.
- Continuity Nod: While launching his rocket, Ravi shouts "NASADA, here I come!" - referring to the space program featured in Power Rangers in Space.
- Disproportionate Retribution: Evox threatens to have Blaze and Roxy recycled as Tronics if they fail to destroy the Megazord.
- Foreshadowing: During Meltatron's attack in the hanger, Scrozzle steals some Grid Battleforce tech along with the beetle robot's head from the previous episode, hoping to use it for his plan for Evox.
- Jerkass Ball: Devon gets abrasive when Ravi tries to suggest a couple of things to him (such as raising the shields up during the simulation and how his rocket looked impractical). Fortunately, he learns his lesson and is back on good terms with his team at the episode's end.
- Meaningless Villain Victory: While the villains did steal some Grid Battleforce tech along with seeing Slicerdrone destroyed (meaning the Rangers can't mine any usable data), they wasted a good amount of Morph-X just to do all that.Evox: YOU DARE TO CALL THIS MISSION A SUCCESS??!!
- Shout-Out: Nate mentions that he could use Slicerdrone's data to create a system to detect Gigadrones before they materialize on Earth. In Go-Busters the Energy Management Center (their equivalent of Grid Battleforce) has the ability to detect incoming enemy Megazords, complete with an onscreen countdown timer. It remains to be seen if Beast Morphers ever does this.
- Virtual Training Simulation: The Rangers train to form the Megazord using VR helmets to simulate combat with a Gigadrone.
- What the Hell, Hero?: After Devon snaps at Ravi following the failed simulator test, Commander Shaw calls him out on his unwillingness to trust his teammates.
