Chōonpa Sentai Gatcharanger (超音波戦隊ガッチャレンジャー Chōonpa Sentai Gatcharenjā translated into English as Ultrasonic Squadron Gatcharanger), will be the 56th entry in the Super Sentai series. It will be produced by Toei and Bandai with concepts from Tatsunoko Productions. It will air on TV Asahi at 5:00 PM every Friday from January 2, 2032 to June 23, 2034, with a total of 130 episodes.

The show is the second to be inspired by Kagaku Ninjatai Gatchaman after Choujin Sentai Jetman, and can best be described as Gatchaman and its sequels Gatchaman II and Gatchaman Fighter combined and done as a proper Super Sentai show with a mecha for each hero and additional heroes (Sixth or Seventh Rangers).

In addition, some elements of Gatchaman's American adaptations will be mixed in such as the machine beings 7-Zark-7, 1-Rover-1 and Susan from Battle of the Planets; and character names from Battle of the Planets, G-Force: Guardians of Space and Eagle Riders will be used as aliases and code-names for most of the characters.

It will be translated by Saban Brands for American and other English-speaking television audiences as Power Rangers: Hypersonic Heroes.

Plot

Over thirty years ago to the contemporary time, the criminal organization known as Galactor was just another mafia in the mold of the Cosa Nostra (Sicilian Mafia), the Yakuza of Japan, the Triads of China, and other mafias and mobs of Earth. They operated conventionally in regular trades (assassination, human trafficking, extortion, counterintelligence and money laundering), until an alien calling itself the Luminous Spirit of the planets Spectra and Selectol in the Andromeda Galaxy arrived and took command. The operatives of Galactor called this new arrival Leader X, and X began a search for the chance to create the brightest and most brutal beings who could surpass X and rule the galaxies near and far.

Usurping and absorbing all the other criminal syndicates in the world, Galactor began to accumulate more resources from the shadows - and yet it was dealt a major blow by one of its primary operatives planted in America's government, President Donald J. Trump, having been served impeachment and dwindling prospects for the 2020 election. With Trump and his ilk shooed out, a more United Nations and climate-friendly administration began taking action. During the first months of the new civilization, an unknown force carried out a string of assassinations on the ruling party of North Korea leading to the collapse of the nation and its absorption into its southern neighbor to become a single Korea.

Without a doubt, those in the international counterintelligence communities knew that only Galactor was capable of a stunt like this. With a number of operatives in Galactor having grown disillusioned and disgusted with the atrocities being committed, two of its science operatives named Giuseppe and Katarina Asakura (both Sicilians of Japanese descent) tried to defect. They were murdered by their own comrades, but left behind a primary school-aged son George who was also presumed dead, but survived with a vengeful hatred for Galactor. In the meantime, X had their greatest scientists discover breakthroughs in genetic manipulations, bionics, and enhancements to make their dreams a reality.

In order to combat climate change and promote responsible living across the stars, the United Nations and America's scientific groups which included NASA, banded together to form the Intergalactic Science Organization which would perfect spaceflight to allow for travel that appeared to exceed the speed of light, facilitate clean-ups and revivals of natural heritage and resource sites, and promote processes of terraforming to create sustainable space colonies on other planets and moons for humanity using ecologically friendly resources and renewable energies. But the forces of Galactor are about to take their boldest steps towards both the overthrow of the human race and total intergalactic domination.

To combat the forces of Galactor; the Intergalactic Science Organization's most renown scientist Dr. Kozaburō Nambu, his machine assistants 7-Zark-7, 1-Rover-1 and Susan recruit a "science ninja team" that use enhanced biological and bionic superpowers similar to the birds their bird style costumes are modeled on, as well as advanced machines, weapons and fighting styles to stop Galactor and its new leaders - Lord Berg Katse and Lady Gel Sadra. At first consisting of five youths which include Kenneth Washio the Eagle, George "Joe" Asakura the Condor, Jun Shiratori the Swan, Jinpei Tsubakurou the Swallow and Ryu Nakanishi the Owl; two more will join to form Ultrasonic Sentai Gatcharanger!
