Plot

"Together, four people from the year 3000 and a man from our time write a new chapter in history...."
―Opening narration[src]
In the 30th century, time travel becomes illegal after a time paradox crisis. The Time Protection Department is established to watch for and stop time crimes. Four new enlistee cadets of the TPD are tricked by Don Dolnero and his gang into letting them time-travel to the 20th century to commit various crimes. To protect history, the four cadets pursue them. There they encounter a severe problem: the Timeranger program requires five members for the first operation. They thus coerce a present-day martial artist, Tatsuya Asami, to join them, allowing them to become the Timerangers. Afterwards Tatsuya rents a building for them to live in and they start a small odd jobs business called Tomorrow Research to financially support themselves.

Over time, the four cadets begin to realize that their presence would inevitably change the future in the form of the City Guardians, a security force under the employment of the Asami Corporation to protect the city from the Londerz. The City Guardians gain a tenuous relationship with the Timerangers, especially when Tatsuya's old rival Naoto Takizawa becomes TimeFire and later the City Guardians' Captain. In the series finale, the Timerangers go back to their regular lives. A year later Tatsuya is jogging when he sees five people who resemble the other Timerangers (including Naoto), but realizes it isn't them.

Notes

  • This is the only series where the opening theme song does not have a final line with the name of the team (comparatively, many teams from Gaoranger on end with a different word but do mention the name of the team's name as part of the final line of the song).
  • This is the only series where the heroes capture the Monsters-of-the-Week, rather than destroying them.
  • This is the first series with only a female singer for the opening theme song, and the second since Gorenger to have a female vocalist for the opening at all. 18 years later, they have a female singer again for opening theme song of Lupinranger VS Patranger  (duet), specifically for the Patranger component of the theme.
  • This is the second Sentai team to not have a mentor.
  • The first season to have a Sixth Ranger that wears red. This happened again with Houou Soldier in Uchu Sentai Kyuranger. Lupinranger vs. Patranger also have two red Rangers, but they were split into separate teams and none of them is a Sixth Ranger.
  • This is the last season until Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger to feature a Pink Ranger and a Green Ranger in the main team
  • This is the first season to feature the official Super Sentai logo at the beginning of each episode.
