|“||So, you've discovered their true identities. Very perceptive of you. Yes, there was a time when these Zords were the Rhino, the Phoenix, and the Shark Galactabeasts, but three thousand years ago they lost their powers in a great battle, doomed to float forever in an asteroid field. I captured them and rebuilt them for my slaves - the Stratoforce and the Centaurus MegaZords, and the Zenith CarrierZord. Now the only spirit these Zords will ever know is transmitted to them from this controller.||„|
After Trakeena ran away from Scorpius, Deviot found his way onto the Scorpion Stinger, where he became the insect overlord’s new general. However he secretly wanted to enter the cocoon Scorpius had prepared for Trakeena so as to gain the power it offered. Deviot captured the Blue and Green Galaxy Rangers and forced them to fight each other so as to get energy for three Zords that he possessed, Stratoforce, Centaurus, and the Zenith Carrierzord. Deviot succeeded in activating them and they easily took on the Galaxy Megazord and Defender Torozord since they refused to fight back because Deviot’s zords were also Galactabeasts. However they broke free of his control and joined the rangers.
After this, he managed to trick Scorpius into thinking that the Power Rangers had Trakeena as their captive. The insect overlord engaged the rangers but was struck a fatal blow in the process and he told Deviot to enter the cocoon as his successor. However Trakeena returned and Scorpius told the treacherous cyborg to serve her when she took over. Deviot did so and constantly conflicted with Villamax due to the fact they had almost opposite personalities. At one point, he managed to get his hands on the data cards that the Psycho Rangers were imprisoned in and released them. However the Psychos were destroyed by a teamup of the Galaxy Rangers and the Space Rangers. Deviot managed to retrieve Psycho Pink and brought her to Trakeena, but she refused to work for the insect princess.
After other constant failures to defeat the rangers, he eventually got his hands on the legendary Galaxy Book and used the Keonta spell inside the book to mutate into a more powerful form. Despite this, Deviot was defeated and later regained his normal form after absorbing energy from another monster in the service of the pirate, Captain Mutiny, who he then joined forces with. After Terra Venture escaped the Lost Galaxy and the pirate followed it with Deviot in tow, Mutiny’s ship was blown up by Trakeena. Deviot survived and attempted to convince her that he had been forced to work for Captain Mutiny, but she didn’t believe him. Deviot tried to enter the cocoon, but Trakeena attacked him and they both ended up in the cocoon. They fused together and Trakeena emerged, but now with Deviot’s ruthless personality.
