Team history

The history of Starstrike could be said to begin with the Hexagon, where Brian worked on several technological projects including Ranger weapons, pocket dimensions, and even traveling to other universes. Some time after the fall of the Hexagon, Brian became friends with Kiyr, who had a deep love of Ranger history.

Over his years of involvement with Earth, Kiyr had seen an increasing distance from the notion of Power Rangers and a reluctance for government and para-military organizations to continue Ranger programs. This attitude was strongest on Earth itself, but was also found to some degree on the planets that were Earth's allies. While it was appropriate to retire older powers that had served their seasons, it was the decision not to use the Grid to defend against future threats that caused Kiyr great concern.

He and Brian began building morphers using their collected knowledge. Brian also became a certified Ranger support operative through the Xybrian government during this time. They made a few dozen morpher cases in the early stages, before they even had a functioning prototype. Then the prototypes were made in red, yellow, green, cyan and blue, with the understanding that more colors were possible. Kiyr found himself wondering if the entire color wheel would be necessary at some point.

Rumors grew and spread of losing contact with outputs and settlements, of an invading army that left little evidence of its passing other than the complete disappearance or destruction of whatever life had been there. Kiyr and Brian worked harder at refining their morphers and gathering the necessary foci. Then suddenly this force struck nearer to Earth than anyone had expected: KO-82, a new outpost right under Triforia's nose. Scans and photography showed nothing left of the several villages and over a thousand people that had been there before - and yet small enemy ships soon rose out of KO-82 to harass the rest of Karova, leading people to believe that the settlers were still there and being forced to work for the enemy and shielded by a kind of cloaking technology. As waves of monsters and footsoldiers attacked from this stronghold, new soldiers were called upon to be the Astro Rangers and defend KO-35 and the other nearby worlds, with mixed success.

There was no more time. Kiyr asked his old friend Adam for help finding a group of young people, preferably some who were already friends, to wield his morphers on a mission to rescue the colonists. Adam scouted the chain of martial arts schools he worked for and found three friends of good character: David, Tyler and Liam. Adam had hoped to find five or six people, and the idea of there being only three reminded everyone uncomfortably of the Hexagon Rangers, but they had little choice. Kiyr, Brian and Adam successfully recruited these three and gave them the red, yellow and blue morphers. The Grid accepted them, and their first morph was a sight to behold. Liam invented the name "Starstrike" for the team, and Tyler was named the leader, with Kiyr and Brian as support.

While that was going on, word had gotten through the grapevine that a new team was forming. Eric's daughter, Alexis, wanted to join the team. ...

The new team contacted the Karovans to state their mission and ask if any resources could be spared for transporting them to the scene - and for zord-building. The response was grim. Yes, a shuttle could be sent soon to bring the Starstrike Rangers to KO-82. And yes, in fact, the Karovans could adapt the new zords they were working on to the new team. But there wasn't much hope. KO-82 was under a sort of magical blackout that defied any sort of reconnaissance. Ships in orbit around KO-82 were not attacked unless they began to descend toward the planet, but from orbit they were unable to discern where anything was, other than by maps of the colony. A rescue team had teleported down to the surface, but communication was immediately lost and never regained. Without a way to see through the cloak, they probably would not stand a chance. Nevertheless, the team was determined to go. The shuttle would arrive in less than a day.

As David, Tyler and Liam went about getting ready to leave Earth, Kiyr and Brian were notified of an alarm going off in their laboratory. This alarm was related to an old project, an inter-universal tracking device that Brian had left in another universe on a test run. It indicated that the position of the device had changed significantly. Fearing another threat, they rushed to see what was going on. To their surprise, two young women from different universes had arrived. One of them, Karen, had been a child when Brian left the device with her in the form of a trinket. The other, Zhera, had the natural ability to travel from one universe to another. They had come peacefully to investigate the people who had made the technology to travel in this way. Most importantly, they both had a strange ability: they could sense the presence of people regardless of obstacles, seeing them as points of light. Combined with stealth technology, this ability would give Starstrike the edge they needed.

Both Karen and Zhera were willing to help Starstrike, but Zhera was still very suspicious and defensive. The team granted Karen the green power and, with some encouragement, convinced Kiyr to take on the cyan power. The shuttle had arrived and was very nearly ready to take off when one more newcomer appeared.

Notes

  • Here are some ways I have tried to make the team subvert trends:
    • Red is not the leader
    • Female Green Ranger
    • Female Black Ranger (sort of; the suit is black to most human eyes)
    • Male Ranger using a bow as an individual weapon
    • "Sixth" Ranger is similar in power level to the core team, with a more powerful one coming later
    • Human Ranger who is not young
