Default That missle in "Countdown"

I love Space and its finalie. But there is one problem I had with "Countdown". The way that planet destroying missle was just conveniently there for Darkconda to use against Specter. Its silly the villains would have that kind of power without using it. And even sillier for Darkconda to be able to just steal it. It also seemed like an all too easy way to defeat Specter. Even if it made a good visual.

Its odd that Specter could be taken down so easily. And not even by the Rangers themselves.

Just another case of arrogance bitting evil in the behind.

Astronema had no reason to destroy the Earth before the final battle. The Rangers would try to hide if she did that. At least this way she could usually Find the Rangers in one spot.

It was pretty duex ex machinaish but that was part of the appeal of "Countdown".

Its likely Astronema was planning on using it on Spector after the invasion was over. Wanting to use it against the Earth was just a fake excuse to have it in board without arousing Specter's suspecions. Darkconda just did her a favor by using it for her.

Astronema was so devious. She probably figured Darkconda would steak it to betray Specter so she could take power. It just shows how evil and self serving Karone really was.

It was odd to have a missle that was that powerful just sitting there. If the UAE had power like that why didn't they use it?

it was probably just recently built and Astronema was probably planning on using it as a last resort - perhaps she was hoping to use it on Dark Specter since she had wanted to destroy him but perhaps she was expecting Darkonda to steal it.

I was always disappointed that the Rangers didn't destroy Specter themselves.
