    I will help.

    Back at the end of Season 1 of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, when the Green Ranger returned, it was to help keep the ratings high (Green Ranger was the most popular Power Ranger). But they were running out of footage. They had TOEI create a whole bunch of new monsters and new battle scenes simply for Power Ranger use.

    But they were going to run out of zord footage at some point, and they decided to go with TOEI's next installment for the zords, but there was no Green Ranger. So Jason David Frank was going to be lost in limbo. It was then that they decided to do VR Troopers (then "Cybertron"), and Jason David Frank was immediately cast in to the show as the main star. The show was even shopped out to various networks stating that the Green Power Ranger would be the main star of the show.

    Brad Hawkins, the guy who then played Ryan Steel in VR Troopers, was going to be the White Ranger until Saban was like "DUHHH" and re-cast Jason David Frank as the White Ranger. It was even more fitting that three cast members left, thus Jason David Frank could then take the role of "leader of the Power Rangers".

    Meanwhile, Brad Hawkins was then shipped off to do Cybertron, which was now VR Troopers. The show ultimately tanked.

    Enter "Power Rangers: Zeo". Towards the end of VR Troopers, Ryan Steel (Brad Hawkins) finds some sort of pyramid ... well, it's speculated that they were going to tie Power Rangers to VR Troopers by having Brad Hawkins show up in the pyramid (Pyramidus) as the Gold Ranger. This went as far as him voicing the Gold Ranger in Power Rangers: Zeo, but Saban was a fruitcake and decided that Trey should be triplets. But Brad Hawkins still did the voiceover work for the triplets (that's not their voices you hear!).

    The end!
