Space Rangers was an American futuristic science fiction drama created by Pen Densham and Trilogy Entertainment Group. The short lived series aired in 1993 and ran for six episodes.
In the year 2104 the Earth colony Fort Hope on the distant planet Avalon struggles to survive. A small force of police/marines called the “Space Rangers Corps” are the first, last and only line of defence for the colonists against crime and the perils of interstellar exploration. The series concentrates on Captain John Boon and his team of Rangers aboard Ranger Slingship #377.
“Fort Hope” aka “Space Rangers” aka Pilot -A lone escape pod reaches Fort Hope, its passenger tells the Rangers of a transport ship that went down. The ship was carrying Boon’s former captain ex-Ranger Decker (Wings Hauser) and Graaka High-Priest Nazzer (Pat Morita) as it went down on the desolate planet Skaraab, a lifeless, sun-scorched wasteland, that’s also home to a sacred Graaka burial site. Boon picks up new team member Daniel Kincaid who is fresh out of the academy. Zylyn tells Boon a legend of an ancient weapon hidden on the planet a thousand years ago, and protected from intruders by deadly vegetation. The Rangers attempt a rescue mission that could cost them all their lives.
Banshees -Colonel Weiss asks the Rangers to trap one of the deadly space predators known as Banshees – a request that Boon refuses until he learns a young boy (Rick Latini III) is trapped on an abandoned slaver spaceship in the Blood Nebula with some of the creatures. Once aboard the spaceship, they have difficulty finding him and learn the secret of his exceptionally long survival. They also have to worry about saving their own lives against creatures they know little about.
The Replacements -The Rangers are assigned a new android trouble-shooter, who they dub “Ringer” (as in Dead), while they try to uncover the reasons behind a mining ship’s hijacking. They’re convinced that the ship is being used by a Hobbaba crime lord named Isogul for smuggling a deadly drug known as “Exjay”, but if they cannot prove it, they have to return it. They also discover that Colonel Weiss’s plans to eventually replace all human Space Rangers with androids.
To Be Or Not To Be -A has-been comedian Lenny Hacker* (Buddy Hackett) crash lands on prison planet Katraz on which there are no guards and from which no one ever leaves. Desperate to escape from yet another dress rehearsal for visiting General Kincaid (Danny’s father), the Rangers undertake to rescue the comedian. General Kincaid holds Commander Chennault responsible for his son’s safety. The team lands on the inhospitable penal colony and come face to face with its violent inhabitants, and the prisoners’ vicious leader Rec.
The Trial -Zylyn is accused of the murder of another Graakan. When they fail to find legal counsel for his defense, the rest of the Rangers are forced to defend him in court themselves. Convinced there is a conspiracy to bring discredit to the Graaka race, they hunt for evidence as to the identity of the real murderer. Meanwhile, Isogul, the ruthless Hobbaba crime lord, has a new card up his sleeve to destroy the Space Rangers’ defense system from inside. His master plan is to take over control of Fort Hope, but the Rangers also have a plan of their own designed to stop Isogul’s crime wave permanently.
Death Before Dishonour -Captain Boon twice accidentally offends a race of reptilian warriors known as Vee’Lons. The Vee’Lon’s dignitary Prince Gor’Dah (Sherman Howard), sentences Boon and his crew to death and declares war on Fort Hope & Central Command.
