Episode 11: Cruger tells the rangers of a story from his past. "My home of Sirius was invaded by Gruumm. Sirius had assembled an elite squad of galactic defenders - Space Patrol Delta, the first SPD. We battled for months without sleep. Though our men fought valiantly, we were no match for the endless army of Troobians. While we fought their soldiers, Gruumm turned his Giant Robot loose on the defenseless city - General Benaag led those troops against use. We were overrun, we were defeated. When I awoke, I was alone, my people were gone, I was the last of my squad, the last of my kind. I have failed my planet, my squad, my... I vowed never to pick up my sword again. That is my story."
Episode 12: Doggie Cruger tells the rangers that when he told them of his past, he did not tell them everything. "While the great battle for Sirius was raging, I was fighting at the front, Benaag snuck in from the back and captured my wife Isinia. I was overrun, I couldn't save her. I never saw Isinia again."
General Benaag had navigated 3 galaxies to find Doggie Cruger, now located on Earth. Emperor Gruumm sends Benaag to Earth to eliminate Doggie Cruger.
Benaag captures Kat Manx to lure Doggie out to fight. He places a Demolecularization Belt around Kat's waist. As Doggie and Benaag get ready for battle, the belt begins counting down from 20 minutes, and if time runs out, Kat's molecules will scatter and she will be gone forever.
Benaag tells Doggie that he must defeat 100 Krybots before they battle. So Doggie takes out his new Patrol Morpher and becomes the Shadow Ranger, easily destroying all the Krybots. Doggie and Benaag battle, and Doggie begins to loose the fight after Benaag shows him that Kat is in a truck nearby running out of time. Benaag fires a blast at Doggie and Doggie uses his Shadow Saber to deflect the blast at the belt, freeing Kat, While only 1 second remained.
Doggie uses his morpher on Benaag to be Judged for his crimes. Benaag is found guilty of obstruction of justice, the destruction of five planets, and atrocities throughout the galaxy. Benaag was then Judged for the disappearance of Isinia Cruger - Doggie Cruger's wife, but was found Not guilty. Doggie then uses his Shadow Saber to 'Card' Benaag.
