Cult TV Essentials: Squadron Sport Ranger

Squadron Sport Ranger debuted in 2006 and ran for two seasons (32 Episodes). Similar to Super Sentai/Power Rangers the Sport’s Rangers had a theme to their powers – which in this case was sports.

The Sport Ranger’s battles the evil Starhunter – an alien tribe that steals all life energy on other planets and gathers their energy in the sixth dimension using “King Medal” and bringing it under their control. Soon they created “Knight Medal” when “King Medal” was not able to absorb all the energy. Hoping to conquer the Earth in one fell swoop, since they believed it would not offer much resistance, they brought along both medals. Fortunately, the ship carrying both medals got hit by crossfire in a war that was going on down on Earth. The medals were lost as the ship exploded in Siberia. Starhunter was forced to retreat and create new medals.

One of the medals was broken into 5 pieces.

The broken medal was taken by researchers headed by Dr. Earth, and the complete medal was taken by Dr. Heart. One day, Heart’s research lab exploded and the medal was nowhere to be found. Later Dr. Earth realised that monsters that had begun to appear were humans that had absorbed the energy from the missing medal when the lab exploded.

Upon further research, Dr. Earth created “SportDetector” to control the 5 broken pieces and special suits to utilize each piece’s unique power. He gave five youngsters the suits to stop these monsters.

Meanwhile, Starhunter is preparing their new invasion of Earth…
