Eltar is Zordon's home planet, and the source of several Ranger teams' connection to the Morphing Grid.
Eltar is a green planet overshadowed by clouds. Its appearance from space hides the fact that some, if not much, of its surface is covered in highly advanced cities.
Eltar was the most powerful planet in the galaxy for millennia, center of the Universal Morphing Grid and a highly advanced civilization. However, when the United Alliance of Evil attacked in force, it was unprepared for the year-long war that followed. Zordon and Alpha 5 returned to fight, and even commissioned Fera to build a set of robotic Aero Rangers to help, but the planet was still conquered, Zordon was captured, but Alpha 5 managed to elude capture and escaped with the help of a reformed Guitardo, Octoplant and Somnibot (among other monsters) and was sent to live aboard the Astro Megaship, while they and a small group of monsters escaped to Earth to live reformed lives.
After thousands of years of envy and resentment, the monsters ran rampant on Eltar, particularly targeting members of Zordon's extensive family. There were a few scattered resistance movements, one led by Robot Cassie and another led by several Irkens, but by the end of 1998, they had all been stamped out; the Robot Rangers were destroyed and the Irkens retreated back to their homeworld in defeat. The Z-Wave purified most of the monsters and destroyed others, but did not repair the damage they had done. Still, the Eltarians were able to rebuild, and as early as 2005, the planet was even more magnificent than it had been before the war.
