As a Silver Guardian
Eric was first seen as a soldier working for the Silver Guardians, an organization established by Wesley Collins' father in order to protect the Silver Hills. Wes later revealed that they attended the same private school. Whereas Wes came from a rich family, Eric worked hard and was dirt poor, and eventually decided to leave the school, saying he had "bigger plans". Eric was resentful for having to work so hard and was looked down on by the snobbier students while Wes did not have to work at all. From this, Eric grew bitter and had few friends. Wes was one of the few people who didn't look down on Eric because of his background and tried to befriend Eric on several occasions, to no avail. Despite this, Eric had some sense of pride and nobility because he didn't take advantage of Wes' kindness, but more of wanting absolutely nothing to do with Wes.
As a Ranger
After discovering that Wes was the Red Time Force Ranger, Eric attempted to find his own powers. He became aware that the Time Force Rangers are looking for the Quantum powers, and he got to it first and forcibly became the Quantum Ranger, much to the displeasure of Wes' teammates. Eric then entered a 3-way struggle with the other Rangers and Ransik to gain control of the Q-Rex, and he prevailed, assuming control of the most powerful Zord in the Time Force arsenal.
Eric became a reluctant ally to the regular Rangers, remaining separate and occasionally aiding them at certain times. During the end of the series, Eric was wounded by a blast from a Cyclobot, and he handed his morpher over to Wes to use the Q-Rex. Wes was able to use the Quantum Defender and Q-Rex to great effect thanks to this. He recovered though and Wes gave him back his morpher, turning over a new leaf, establishing friendships and turning from anti-hero to hero. When the Rangers departed for the future, Mr. Collins offered Wes command of the Silver Guardians , who would now protect the city from evil for free and Wes accepted on the condition that a surprised Eric be his partner.
Meeting the Wild Force Rangers
Wes and Eric have become best friends during their duty as Silver Guardians, he is seen giving Taylor Earhardt a ticket for speeding a car.

Sins of the Future
to be added
When events set into motion by Lord Drakkon caused the timeline to split into pocket universe, each anchored on a powerset, the Time Force Rangers were split off into their own pocket universe. Quantum Ranger eventually received Zordon's call through the Morphin Grid and was among numerous Rangers who rallied to his pocket dimension for the last stand against Lord Drakkon, reuniting with Jen.
Video game Appearances

Eric as Quantum Ranger appears in the app videogame Power Rangers Key Scanner, amoung various other Rangers teams.
Power Rangers Legacy Wars
At the same time of Southworth’s reprisal and his Battle for the Grid’s release date, Eric is also a useable character in Power Rangers Legacy Wars. He is the third member of his respetive team to be released. He is the 25th 6th/extra ranger character to be released,he is a Legendary (Leader), Legendary (Assist) character,and represents Time Force Rangers with Jen and Wes.
Battle for The Grid
Eric Myers is a playable character in Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid. He uses his Quantum Defender primarily as his weapon.
When he was first introduced, Eric was very bitter and hateful, wanting to top Wes because of their different backgrounds, which is quite odd as Wes showed he wanted nothing more than to be genuine friends with him, despite their backgrounds; Wes turned down a party with a rich kid, wanting to hang out with Eric instead. As Eric put it from his point of view "[Wes] has all the money and connections; he just didn't know how to use them." It's likely that Eric was annoyed with Wes's laid back attitude, as he effectively treated everything, mainly school and life, like it wasn't a big deal, a luxury his wealth afforded him while Eric had to work extremely hard to reach a similar position.
As the series progressed, however, Eric warmed up to being with the Time Force Rangers. By the end of the series, he was not bitter toward Wes for taking over his position as leader of the Silver Guardians and they became real, genuine friends from their time as partners.

Behind the Scenes
- Eric is played by Dan Southworth.
- As the Quantum Ranger, his suit actor in Super Sentai footage from Timeranger was Yasuhiko Imai (今井 靖彦 Imai Yasuhiko) & his suit actor in US footage was Hiroo Minami (南博男 Minami Hiroo).
- Although he fights alongside them on several occasions, Eric is unique among Sixth Rangers in that he never officially joins the Rangers during their time as an active team.
- Eric was originally supposed to die, like his Super Sentai counterpart, but this was later changed because higher management was unsatisfied with the original ending. As a result, Eric healed from his injuries and returned to the Silver Guardians full time.
- He is the only Sixth Ranger to be a Red Ranger.
- In the first episode where Eric gets his powers, the face of his Sentai counterpart, Naoto Takizawa, is seen in certain shots. As both actors look quite similar, footage of Naoto was sometimes used throughout the season.
- When he first morphs the Quantum Morpher says "Fire" on it for his Sentai counterpart Time Fire; this is an error resulting from the use of Sentai footage.
- Eric was the first Ranger to wear the same color as another Ranger on the same team.
- Thus, Eric was the only Sixth Ranger to appear in Forever Red; the other Red Rangers were part of their respective core teams.
- While the Quantum Ranger does have his own unique Time Force badge, it is not shown onscreen.
- He is the first Sixth Ranger to obtain a Battlizer, and currently the only one to have one in-show.
- Naoto Takizawa - Super Sentai counterpart in Timeranger. See comparison page.
- Captain Ryuya as the other TimeFire
