Power Rangers Crystal Beasts is an upcoming fanfiction PR series created by CureKurogane. It is planned on being a crossover series that takes place after the events of Voltron: Legendary Defender where one of the Paladins teams up with four teenagers on Earth, who bestow the power of five gemstones called the Crystal Gems and five crystallized robotic animals called the Gem Beasts, where they fight Gaaron, an ancient Galran who is trying to obtain both the Gems and the Gem Beasts to grant immense cosmic power. It is planned to have the story be posted on FanFiction.net.
The concept of the series was developed by CureKurogane after becoming exposed to the 2016 Netflix animated series, Voltron: Legendary Defender and then reading a fanfiction which was a crossover between the said series and Power Rangers and it sparked complete interest in making a story that had elements of Voltron, but with characters of different series who fight as the Power Rangers.
The show starts many eons ago when five crystallized robotic animals crash land on the planet Altea, where they were found by the Altean people, each of the robot takes the form of the five animals: lion, pegasus, dragon, eagle, and tiger. Not only that, these robots take the essence of five gemstones: ruby, emerald, sapphire, diamond, and rubellite; embodying the five elements that make the universe.
But they weren't alone, the five robots each held a gemstone that represented both their power and essence. Fascinated by their power and now believed that they weren't a threat, the Alteans named them the Crystal Gems and the Gem Beats.
However, their power catches the attention of one person, causing him to become mesmerized. Gaaron, a member of the Galra race realizes that with the Crystal Gems and the Gem Beasts power, they can be used for greater things since as dominance and control. Because of his corruption, the first king banishes Gaaron, stripping him from gaining access to the Crystal Gems and the Gem Beasts. He returned years later and unleashed an attack on the Royal Altean family, claiming the Crystal Gems and the Gem Beasts, but when he finally get to both the Gems and the Beasts, he was blinded by a great light released by the relics thrwarting him and wasn't seen ever since. Not only that, the Crystal Gems and the Gem Beasts have disappeared after his defeat.
Years later, one of the Gems have been found. In a planet called Aoloa, Keith the Red Paladin of Voltron has stumbled upon the Ruby Gem, followed by its Gem Beast, Ruby Lion. But when Aoloa was attacked, his team along with Princess Allura and Coran have been captured as well as the legendary defender, Voltron. This forced Keith to flee with Ruby Lion and the Ruby Gem for Gaaron has returned to claim them for his power.
He crash lands on Earth, where he ends up in Angel Grove, California, home to the famous superhero team known to humanity: the Power Rangers. He encounters four young teenagers, who he discovers that they have found the other Crystal Gems. But they were now approached by Sendak, who demanded the Crystal Gems and the Gem Beasts. However, the Gem responded to Keith and the four holders and gave them not just their elemental powers, but new abilities to fight as a new team of the legendary Power Rangers.
