Everyone is excited that Rocky’s Uncle Joe, the famous quarterback, is speaking at the high school. Most excited is Allen, who plays football for Angel Grove, but has constant problems in class with numbers and letters. Back on the Moon, Rita and Zedd create the CENTIBACK monster who can change people into footballs. They send the monster to Earth and the monster transforms Bulk, Skull, Uncle Joe and all of the Rangers except Rocky into footballs. Rocky retreats to the Command Center and he and Alpha create a devise that can reverse the energy fields. Rocky solicits Ninjor’s help and together they face the Centiback. The device works and the others are returned to their normal state. The Centiback grows, but is no match for the Ninja Megafalconzord and Ninjor. Allen is diagnosed with dyslexia and gets the help he needs to overcome his learning disability and stays on the team.
