History

The Galactic Ranger Force was an interstellar military that worked on behalf of the Galactic Federation which consisted of countless extraterrestrial species. (Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers v1 #7)

Once the Insecton threat was dealt with, the Tiger was prepared to depart for its next assignment though Earth's military forces on the ground attempted to detain them. However, Captain Victory ordered a 'zap out' and had his forces depart the world. Around this time, Ranger Station Vega was attacked by the Wonder Warriors on behalf of their master from Quadrant X where they stole the facility's information core. (Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers v1 #8) Upon arriving at Quadrant X, the Tiger was ambushed by the Wonder Warriors but managed to capture four of the criminals but the Rangers were unable to match the powers of Paranex, the Cosmic Fetus.
