Commandocon was selected by Ransik because he has the ability to open time portals, which he does to go after the lost Q-Rex. The Red and Quantum Rangers follow him but are unable to stop Commandcon from controlling Q-Rex. He opens another timehole and takes Q-Rex to present time 2001. Commandocon is recaptured by the Q-Rex Megazord, newly under Eric's control. "Clash For Control, Part 1 and 2"
