There are universes without Rangers, universes where there are far more deaths or far fewer deaths, universes where actors and students and scientists never have to become soldiers.
(Would it really be worth it to have a world without the legacy of the Rangers? A world where there is never a rainbow of teams, where the mountains are not full of generations of Rangers when the Armada arrives?)
There are worlds where Rita Repulsa or Ecliptor or Xandred or Gruumm invade and win, where humanity falls because there is no one to save it.
There are some universes where Dai Shi is never released, where Sledge turns away from earth, where Venjix is never created, and thus Rangers never have to arrive.
There are worlds where there are kids who never grow up to become Rangers, who live peaceful lives never knowing the taste of steel against their skin or the smell of the inside of a helmet, and there are worlds where some kids never grow up at all.
