Theodore Jay Jarvis Johnson, or TJ, as he prefers to be called, is a fictional character in the Power Rangers universe, starring in the Power Rangers Turbo and Power Rangers in Space TV series. He is played by actor Selwyn Ward.
While on route to the fictitious city of Angel Grove, California, TJ, who was traveling with Cassie Chan, runs to the aid of Pink Ranger Kat Hillard, who was attacked by the villain Divatox, and ends up fighting off a group Pirahnatrons with the help of Cassie. Because of his bravery and his assistance in saving others (including Tommy Oliver), Tommy picked him to lead the team as the new Red Turbo Ranger. Although he was a capable team leader, he ended up having one of the worst final showings of any Red Ranger. The end of the series saw the destruction of two Megazords, one of which was set to self-destruct per his order in a failed attempt to destroy a foe, the loss of two vehicles, and finally the loss of the Turbo Ranger powers.
Making his way into space to pursue Divatox, he meets Andros, the Red Space Ranger from a distant planet. Although not initially receptive of their presence, Andros would later give the four remaining Turbo Power Rangers new powers that matched his own, and T.J. would become the Blue Space Ranger and second-in-command of the team, and in turn give leadership of the team to Andros. During the course of the series T.J suffered at least two serious head injuries. The first incident was when he was attacked by Darkliptor (a being that was a merging of Ecliptor and Darkonda), which left him with temporary amnesia. The second occurred when Psycho Blue nearly killed him, placing him in the intensive care unit aboard the Astro Megaship. He would remain the Blue Space Ranger for the remainder of the series and would participate in the final Battle against the United Alliance of Evil.
He was also in the Power Rangers Lost Galaxy episodes "To the Tenth Power," arriving with Cassie, Ashley and Carlos to aid Andros and the Galaxy Power Rangers against the resurrected Psycho Rangers, and "The Power of Pink," intending to spend some down time on Terra Venture with the other Rangers. He fought next to fellow Blue Ranger Kai Chen. T.J. and the Space Rangers continued to fight alongside the Galaxy Rangers against Deviot and Psycho Pink until Kendrix's sacrifice, then returning to their duties to protect Earth.
