|This article is about a/an planet in Power Rangers in Space, the last installment in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers saga.|
KO-35 is the home planet of Andros, Zhane, and Karone. It is also one of the original Power Ranger worlds, and the power of the Space Rangers was developed there, possibly by Zordon with the help of the KO-35 scientists.
Around the year 1996, KO-35 was invaded by a huge army, resulting in the near death of Zhane, and the abandonment of the world by its people (further rushed by an invasion of deadly insects, caused by Darkonda). Since then, the world remained empty, until the Space Rangers helped them move back home after stumbling across their new homeworld.
During his mass invasion of every major planet of the universe (during Countdown to Destruction), Dark Specter had the Machine Empire attack KO-35. It was the death of Zordon which released a pure beam of energy that wiped out the invaders and freed the world.
By the year 2025, Earth and KO-35 had formed an alliance, and the Space Patrol Delta had a prison facility in KO-35's orbit. (Power Rangers: SPD). It is also possible that the powers of the A-Squad S.P.D. Power Rangers were developed there, as the suits closely resemble those of the Space Rangers.
Behind the scenes
KO-35 was one of several planets in the Power Rangers universe which would appear on a regular basis in Hexagon, the original plan for the season after Wild Force. The Hexagon Rangers would travel to these familar locations to respond to threats of evil.
