Space Rangers is an intergalactic action-adventure in the best tradition of "Star Wars". Created by Pen Densham, "Space Rangers" is a compelling story about a group of adventurers for whom no task is too great. This six part miniseries features an ongoing cast of rugged, likeable peacekeepers who must do battle against a new set of obstacles in each of six closed-end episodes. The year is 2104. Explorers have stretched civilization to the farthest reaches of the galaxy establishing remote outposts. They've discovered new worlds and learned to share them with new races. A few elite men and women have volunteered to go to the frontier, not to rule, but to uphold the law. These are the "Space Rangers", part Peacekeepers, part Marines. Much like the pioneers or cavalry before them, who tamed the Wild West, the "Space Rangers" have left behind their old, comfortable life to seek new frontiers and challenges. With this quest come new enemies as well. None are as fierce as the "Banshies", who are akin to the Apaches to those who were trying to colonize the Old West. These brutal warriors are the greatest fear and impediment in the galaxy. While "Space Rangers" deals with life on the frontier, the program also addresses our current problems in a futuristic setting. Topics such as honor, responsibility or losing one's job to automation underscore the adventurous elements in each episode. This sense of morality or "message" is subtely interspliced into each episode, taking "Space Rangers" one step beyond the average sci-fi show.

Space Rangers - Planets - Netflix
New Venus -A former Earth colony that was overrun with Banshees. While most of the men elected to abandon the colony, the women chose to stay and fight off the invaders. As a result the colony became an Amazon-like matriarchy. Jojo Thorsen originates from this colony and harbors a deep hatred for Banshees. Skaraab -A desolate planet where the days are so hot that the suns burn away all surface life in a matter of one day. The planet's vegetation has to grow back overnight and is so aggressive that it will even consume animal tissue in order to survive. It is also home to an ancient Graaka burial temple. Earth -Home to the Space Rangers Corps & its Central Command. It is several weeks away at lightspeed from Fort Hope. Avalon -Home to our heroes' colony of Fort Hope. On the outside it looks much like the Painted Desert in the American southwest. Katraz -Penal colony. A place where the galaxy's worst are dumped off never to be heard from again. There are no guards and no ways to leave. The planet is ruled by anarchy among the inmates. One inmate named Rec heads the majority of factions on the planet. The name is no doubt derived from the former San Francisco prison of Alcatraz Island which also had the reputation for being impossible to escape. Blood Nebula -A favorite hiding spot for smugglers and slavers. Its red clouds jam most sensors making enforcement in this area difficult at best. Vee'Lon Prime -A wet, sandy, and tropical planet home to the reptilian Vee'Lons.
