XR was created by the LGMs as the second robot Space Ranger after [[XL]].

He was destroyed by [[Warp Darkmatter]] (now Agent Z) during this mission, and the LGMs attempted to rebuild him without the use of their [[Uni-Mind]]. This gave him a human-like personality, and he was temporarily reassigned as a janitor until he eventually joined Buzz's team after helping to save the galaxy from Zurg's mind control machine.

“I came, I saw... I interfaced.”

XR is a robotic Space Ranger who was originally created by the LGMs to be Buzz Lightyear's new partner, but wound up becoming a member of Team Lightyear and the first offical robot Ranger in Star Command.

Physical AppearanceEdit

XR is a robot that sports Star Command's colors (purple, green, white) and logo on his chassis. He has a disembodied gold/bronze-colored head with yellow optics, encased purple circles and green eyelids. However, sometimes the optics appear green or red depending on his mood. He possesses short arms and legs which can stretch out to any length he wants. He also possesses continuous treads encased in green for feet and purple hands. His head is surrounded by an oval glass dome.

HistoryEdit

The Xperimental Ranger, or XR for short, was created by the LGMs as the second robot Space Ranger, following the failure of the original XL model, programmed to learn from one of the best Rangers, Buzz Lightyear. On his first mission, he imitated Buzz repeatedly during their attempt to save the LGM homeworld from the Evil Emperor Zurg's dark forces, and was destroyed by Buzz's old partner in Zurg's employment, Warp Darkmatter (now Agent Z). The LGMs attempted to rebuild him, but the loss of their Uni-Mind to Zurg left them off their game, leading them to rebuild him with improper parts. This gave him a human, less professional personality, and he was temporarily reassigned as a janitor alongside Booster Munchapper until he eventually joined Buzz's team after helping him save the galaxy from Zurg's Uni-Mind powered mind control machine.

PersonalityEdit

Originally XR was obedient, imitating all Buzz's actions to learn how to act as a ranger. However, after his reprogramming he developed a huge ego and sarcastic sense of humour.

Despite having great intelligence, XR's personality is deeply selfish and self-serving, frequently looking out for his own self-interests rather than the good of the universe. Should an opportunity for money, women or fame present itself, XR's priorities are known to flip in an instant. He is as childish as Booster, and will openly tease and taunt those around him for his own amusement. He also gets cocky after a single success, yet fearful after he can't repeat the same success twice. Despite his numerous personality flaws, XR is genuinely loyal to his friends and team, and at his core is a dedicated Space Ranger.

Despite being created by the LGMs, XR views Commander Nebula as his father, due to the fact that it was his (unknowing) signature that approved XR's creation in the first place. Nebula, who openly dislikes machines, is quick to become agitated when XR expresses this familial love, though deep down he does indeed care for the mechanical ranger and recognizes his efforts. 

XR possesses deep hatred and anger for Vulturans, due to their scavenging behavior upon spaceships, space stations and, most disturbingly, robots. In the presence of Vulturans, XR will usually descend into a violent rage, attacking with wild abandon.

AbilitiesEdit

As a robot, XR has many abilities. To serve in his job as a Space Ranger, he has a version of the standard Star Command jetpack built into his chassis. He can pull out multiple guns from his back and hands, and also has one big gun in his chest. His chest compartment can hold a wide variety of items, some of them nonsensical. He has many other features such as a built-in stove, a jamming signal, and others. He has the ability to be rebuilt after any damage he receives, either by the LGMs that built him or via self-repair systems, depending on severity. Though XR is known to fall apart without much effort, his parts in themselves are highly durable, allowing him to survive many instances that would be otherwise fatal to a Space Ranger.
