- "Quantum Power!"
- ―Eric's morphing call
Eric Myers was raised in a poor family where he had to fight for everything and became resentful of those born with a silver spoon in thier mouth. An unknown number of years ago, Eric attended a prep school where he met Wesley "Wes" Collins the son of the billionaire Albert Collins. They spent an unknown amount of time together there but Eric eventually stormed out and left the school because it was full of "lazy rich kids wasting their time" and he had bigger plans. Sometime later, he was able to join the Silver Guardians as a soldier.
Eric is first seen when the Silver Guardians are hired by Mr. Collins to defend Silver Hills and they foil a jewelry store heist by Nadira and the Cyclobots. He then meets Wes again but acts overly cold and disinterested to him, assuming that he's out with his friends wasting thier wealth before leaving.
After discovering that Wes is the Red Time Force Ranger, Eric attempts to find his own powers and becomes aware that the Time Force Rangers are looking for the Quantum powers and he gets to it first and forcibly becomes the Quantum Ranger much to the displeasure of Wes' teammates. Eric is able to defeat Brickneck but is unable to earn him the leadership of the Guardians as Mr. Collins is unimpressed.
Eric is able to win the position of Silver Guardian Commander by gaining control of the Quantasaurus Rex which manages to win Mr. Collins' favor and finally becomes the leader of the Guardians. Mr. Collins offers Jen, Lucas, Trip and Katie to join the Silver Guardians and unite the Rangers and Guardians teams with Eric as their leader but the Rangers refuse due to his questionable motives.
Eric becomes a reluctant ally to the regular Rangers, remaining separate and occasionally aiding them at certain times in the interests of the city although his cold attitude remains.
When Ransik and Frax launch their final attack on the city, Doomtron emerges and opens timeholes to destroy the city. Once the Silver Guardians arrive, they evacuate the city as Eric morphs into the Quantum Ranger and summons the Q-Rex but Doomtron easily defeats it with overwhelming firepower. Before the battle can continue for long however, the Time Force Rangers stop Eric from fighting because the Trizyrium Crystals are making the wormholes grow and the different sets being in such close proximity to each other is just exasperating the problem. However, Eric refuses which results in much of Silver Hills being sucked into the time-holes and erased from existence. Desperate, Wes sends the other Time Force Rangers back to 3001 so that they're safe whilst he and Eric remain to defend the city.
That night, the timeholes have combined into one gigantic vortex even as people rally to the local hospital as a safehaven. However, as Eric and Wes contemplate having sent back the other Rangers later the same night, Ransik finds out where they are based thanks to a patrolling Cyclobot. He then launches an all-out assault on the Clock Tower with an army of Cyclobots to flush out and destroy the two. Although the two fight bravely, they are easily overrun and are forced to destroy the building with the Electro Booster and escape on the Strata Cycle and TF Eagle. By the next morning, Doomtron returns and an army of Cyclobots invade the now completely deserted city to find and kill Wes and Eric. The two engage a group to rescue Mr. Collins but Eric is badly wounded when he shields Mr. Collins and Wes from a stray surviving Cyclobot so he hands over the Quantum Morpher so that Wes can use the Q-Rex. After Ransik surrenders and the Rangers depart for the future, Mr. Collins offers Wes command of the Silver Guardians who will now protect the city from evil for free and Wes accepts 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. After writing her up, Eric and Wes talked about Taylor being the type of troubled girl.
The next morning, Eric, Wes, and the Silver Guardians receive a disturbance call from Cranston Plaza, He and Wes battle against the Mut-Orgs in their Ranger forms, but are easily defeated Eric thought that all the mutants are captured and they were sent to the future, but before the Mut-Orgs can finish them off, the Wild Force Rangers arrive. However, the Mut-Orgs escaped. Eric is recognized by Taylor as the police that give her a ticket and is scolded by her.
The other Rangers calm the situation, Eric and Wes confused by the word Orgs by part of the Wild Force Rangers, they decide contact Trip from the future, aware that the Mut-Orgs are fugitive from the year 3001 and the strange disappearance to Jen, Eric and Wes decide work in teaming up with the Wild Force Rangers. They decide to have a battle in team against the Mut-Orgs but are brutally defeated by them until Jen appears in his and the others rescue.
Second Battle against Mut-Orgs
Back in the Animarium, Eric and the other Rangers heard Circuit's call from the future, listening that the other Time Force Rangers returned to the past. The Time Force Rangers have a reunion after much time until Ransik and Nadira appears, in the Animariun Eric like the other Rangers found out that Ransik created the Mut-Orgs, when the Time Force Rangers spend the night at the Animarium. During this time, he developed a love-hate relationship with Taylor Earhardt resulting that they will get to know a little more, the next day Eric along with the other Time Force Rangers, Wild Force Rangers, Nadira and Ransik go to the power plant and divide into groups. Eric goes with Taylor and Katie in the reactor room, where they fight the Putrids to give Trip time to shut down the reactor. He allowed Taylor to use his Quantum Defender and destroy the reactor.
Soon, all the Rangers gather to face the Mut-Orgs. Eric and Merrick Baliton in their Ranger forms defeat a Putrid Army, Eric using his Megabattle and the other Time Force Rangers, the Wild Force Rangers are regrouped by the Red Rangers with their Battlizers attacking with the Chrono Blasters and Crystal Sabers destroy the Mut-Orgs. Battle now won, the Rangers rush back to Ransik and Nadira, Eric liked the other Rangers witness Ransik's retention, They all return to the Animarium for a picnic.
Battle against Machine Empire survivors
Sometime after Wes and Eric were called by Carter Grayson to team up, with the previous Red Rangers in a special mission led by Tommy Oliver at NASADA space port, Eric first meets the previously Red Rangers Andros, T.J. Johnson and Tommy. Jason Lee Scott, the original Red Ranger pulls up to the group on a motorcycle. Eric and the other Red Rangers aboard the Astro Megaship Mark II, during the travel to the moon, he's listening to the plans of the Machine Empire and the Evil Zord Serpentera.
On the moon, General Venjix and his other generals prepare to board Serpentera but they are then interrupted by the Red Rangers. Venjix sends Cogs to distract the eight Rangers while he and the others proceed to Serpentera. Eric do battle with the Cogs unmorphed and dispose of them with relative ease, Cole is rescued by Leo Corbett and Aurico on Leo's Jet Jammer, Venjix and the other Generals then arrive and are shocked to see ten Red Rangers before them. All of the Rangers then morph with their respective calls (except Aurico, who never appears demorphed) and do battle with the Generals in groups of two.
Eric and Aurico fight Tezzla and destroys her with Eric's Quantum Defender. With no time to get to the Ship before it takes off, Eric and the other Red Rangers rely on Cole with his Wild Force Rider to battle Venjix. Both Venjix and Serpentera are destroyed for good, truly ending the Machine Empire menace once and for all. Afterwards, the nine human Rangers part ways, and Cole remarks how Tommy appeared to be the "greatest Ranger ever" with the other Rangers bragging of their exploits, during which he jokingly bemoaned the fact that his Q-Rex could easily defeat his Dragonzord.
Sins of the Future
After Ransik's defeat, many Cyclobots are left in Silver Hills with no master to command them, leaving them to attack the city sporadically for many years. In 2007, as another army of renegade Cyclobots attack the city, Eric and Wes defend Silver Hills as Silver Guardians. Eric tells the army to stand down but, when Wes goes to attack the Cyclobots by himself as he is late to his date with Jen Scotts, Eric warns him that it is too dangerous. Wes is saved by Jen who comes from the future to rescue him so Eric greets Jen and reassures both of them that he is doing good against the Cyclobots so that they can go to their date in peace. After Jen and Wes are attacked by a mysterious Black Ranger, Eric rushes to save Wes who is left badly injured, Wes tells Eric that Jen has broken up with him and left to the future forever. Eric takes Wes to his apartment and later visits him to give him a coffee. He tells Wes that he should stop torturing himself with his impossible relationship with Jen as she is from the future. They both go to the Silver Guardians HQ and are informed of historical anomalies that occur recently.
Helping Orion in visions
Orion calls out to the power of all the Sixth Ranger, including Eric, in order to create the Super Megaforce Gold key. He also appears in the Legendary Final Strike during the second phase of the attack, slashing through the enemy with his Quantum Defender Blade Mode.

Tommy gathered all the existing Power Rangers, Eric returned with his fellow Time Force Rangers as part of the army of Legendary Rangers led by Tommy that helped the Mega Rangers to defeat the Armada once and for all, fighting in a huge battle against hundreds of X Borgs and dozens of Bruisers. After the demise of the X-Borgs, Tommy shook hands with Troy and teleported off along with Eric and the Legendary Rangers.
When events set into motion by Lord Drakkon cause the timeline to split into a pocket universe, each anchored on a powerset, the Time Force Rangers are split off into their own pocket universe.
Eventually receiving Zordon's call through the Morphin Grid, Eric is among numerous Rangers who rally to his pocket dimension led by the Quantum Ranger for the last stand against Lord Drakkon and unite in the Command Center.

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 respective 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.
Power Rangers Battle for The Grid
Eric Myers as the Quantum Ranger 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 extremely bitter and jaded and wanted 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.
Since then though, Eric has 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 have become real, genuine friends from their time as partners.
