|This article is about a/an building in Power Rangers: Shattered Hourglass.|
Hourglass Facility is located in the Canadian part of the Rocky Mountains, safe within a force field to keep Akra attention elsewhere. The main building is a tall, metallic tower, but it extends down into the mountain. There are eleven decks: a basement full of generators and emergency portals, a gym/pool area with a special filtered bath for Aquitians; floors for military, scientific and Ranger personnel living quarters; a general living space including a cafeteria and a simulator; Akra Containment and Research; Hourglass Tech Labs; Sickbay; Portals; and on the top, Hourglass Ops. This last room is walled with one massive cylindrical computer screen, the floor dotted with holographic emitters, so that staff can pluck images off the screen and toss them into the room, to manipulate them three-dimensionally.
Hourglass was originally created as a branch of Time Force under the command of Alex Drake, intended to investigate and remove Akra to keep the timeline accurate. It was eventually compromised when Alex's extended pursuit of the Akra leader allowed her to begin psychically influencing him to fall in love with her. From his mind she learned the location and capabilities of Hourglass Facility, which she used to build up her forces out of their reach and then attack and overwhelm them.
