Ultraman Tiga Era
At the dawn of the twentieth century, TPC was created by its first leader Sawai to ensure peace on Earth. Among its umbrella organizations was GUTS (Global Unlimited Task Squad), an elite paranormal investigative and rescue unit.
When giant monsters and invading aliens started to appear, TPC responded by converting GUTS into a military unit to combat this new threat to mankind. They also began investigating the ancient organization after Ultraman Tiga first appeared.
In the year 2012, two years after Tiga's final battle, Saeki revisited the R'lyeh Island and engineered Project F: to use the Ultramen as weapons. However, the plan failed and he died along with his followers save Iruma when the Giants of Darkness were released thanks to him. Eventually, a restored Tiga managed to defeat all the Giants of Darkness.
Ultraman Dyna Era
In year 2017, TPC had reached their greatest success following the terraformation of Mars. But another threat would came in when a new Ultra appeared and continue Tiga's legacy. As the giant first battled Darambia, the older TPC members sees him as Ultraman Tiga with an alternate appearance but others say that it's not Tiga, but a new Ultra with a resemblance to him. As time passes and Kihachi Gondo reengineers the late Saeki's Project F by kidnapping Asuka and creating the manmade Ultra, Terranoid, but when the Spheres takes over his creation and he sees Asuka selflessly protecting everyone, he develops a change of heart and sacrifices himself to save Dyna/Asuka. With Gransphere vacuuming almost all of the Solar System planets including the artificial sun, TPC assist Super GUTS by equipping Clarkov NF-3000 with Neo Maxima Cannon to ease Asuka/Dyna's battle with Gransphire but the victory turns sober due to Asuka being sucked into the wormhole.
After 15 years, TPC under General Hibiki has successfully operated the Mars Base. Hibiki briefly appeared in a hologram where he celebrates the 15th year anniversary of Asuka’s sacrifice.
