Default Lightspeed Rangers ages?

How old do you think the Lightspeed Rangers were? Keep in mind that Lightspeed was pretty much a government agency. You'd assume that they would have to be, at the very least, 21 years old. I looked up Alison MacInnis, who was born in 1980, which means on the show would have been 20 years old in real life. But for cannon's sake, I would assume she was a bit older.

I'm looking for clarification for a fan fic I'm working on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


And oh, by the way, I'm new. Hi everyone!

To be fair you can't assume anything in the Power Rangers universe since our laws go out the window. Putties can drive and P-trons can ride.

There's a such thing as aliens.

Humans can breathe in outer space with no outside protection.

That being said Captain said he had been training Dana for 18 years so I would think that would be a good starting point not to mention Ryan resurfaced on his 20th birthday which is another good indicator that you don't have to be 21 to join Lightspeed also keep in mind that he (Ryan) had referred to her (Dana) as his little sister which would also seem to indicate that she's younger than 20.

Thats one of the problems with those seasons. The characters were too old and not high school kids anymore.

Ryan's implication is that Dana was younger than 20 and that's too old? The senior Turbo Rangers were at best 18 and even the newer Turbo Rangers (minus Justin) were about 17 and that's if you take into account the U.S. school system of which as we all know we can't do.

I always hated how they were old. PR teams should always be teenagers

no they shouldn't a Power Ranger is a warrior that's meant to fight for the greater good so there should be no age requirement involved.

The nature of the season made it more sense to have llder Rangers.

The problem wasn't their ages. The Lightspeed Rangers were just boring characters. Only Joel was interesting but not enough to save the season.

It would have been nice to have them be teens. But the big problem was the characters just weren't interesting. The only exception is Joel. Who was very fun. His interactions with Fairweather saved the season for me. They tried to make Dana funny in the second half, but it didn't work.
