The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers!!!!

Err....OK... If you don't know what I'm talking about....

It was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid....err... younger. ;-)

ANYWAY... I was thinking of a campaign setting in which a group of heroes with special abilities are gathered together to fight crime in the "wild frontier"

I always enjoyed the setting... a sci-fi Western with metas... In the original show the four main characters are all enhanced in some way. In the show the "upgrades" are she Series-5 Brain Implants, or "S5 implants". The S5 implant enables a dramatic boost of innate abilities due to its unique conversion of bio-electrical power generated by alpha radiation stored within the badges worn by the Galaxy Rangers.... In a nut-shell... super-powers.
<From Wikipedia>
Zachary Foxx
Zachary Foxx is the captain of the series 5 Rangers. His entire left side was replaced with bionics which allow him to fire blasts of energy with his left arm and gives him extraordinary strength. Within Captain Zachary Foxx, the implant's function is simply to act as a power conduit: triggering the badge activates a sequence of events that supercharges his left-side bionics and enables either a boosting of the myomer muscles and tendons, or a channeling of bio-electrical energy through the bionic amplifiers to produce an energy blast of up to 16 standard carbine shots, which makes him capable of blasting a wall apart, spot-welding circuitry, or possibly punching through a ship's hull.

Shane Gooseman
Shane "Goose" Gooseman was genetically produced in a test tube as part of a government genetic experiment to create a group of enhanced mutant soldiers known as "Supertroopers". His series 5 bionic implants allow him limited control over his body's molecules giving him the ability to heal, absorb energies, and adapt to various environmental conditions by temporary shape-shifting his body to adapt based on his situation or environment. Ranger Gooseman's implant supercharges his genetic bio-defenses, enabling them to react almost instantly, instead of minutes or hours, as would normally happen.

Niko
Niko is an archaeologist specializing in ancient cultures, and has innate psychic abilities. She carries a large gun and knows martial arts. Her series 5 implant boosts her psychic abilities and she can create shields, lift objects, and has clairvoyance. Ranger Niko's implant acts as a psychic amplifier, boosting her innate psychic abilities by adding power from the converted radiation into a psionic boost which can increase her range from simple tactile up to light years distant. She can also generate a shield of ambient energy which will dramatically drain her implant, but can be augmented by touching the other rangers and drawing power from them. T

Walter Hartford
Walter "Doc" Hartford is a swashbuckling character who fights with a sword, a gun, and his fists. He is a computer genius who, along with the BETA Scientist 'Q-Ball', is responsible for most of the automated systems that the Galaxy Rangers use daily. His series 5 implants allow him to communicate with, and control, special programs called 'tweekers' which appear as flying holographic computer animated geometric shapes.

Having said all of this...

I see a variant of the series involving metas...

Any thoughts?

Love this series. In my head it and Bravestarr were both in the same universe, but Bravestarr dealing with more mystical stuff due to his unique abilities.

I could easily the overall Galaxy Rangers being made up of people with unique skills and abilities. The "booster" aspect of the badges would be for Rangers who have some latent potential but limited to no special abilities of their own. The Ranges would, however, actively recruit people like Bravestarr who have their own innate powers.

I'm pretty much online with Ares here. The Rangers was a great series and would be active in recruiting top tier individuals from all races. The heroes team would be some of the ""Best of the Best"" which is why they're a focus of the series.

I loved the Galaxy Rangers, it's one of the few things I still "Fan boy" about, even in my 40's lol
