It was first commissioned three years after the Science Special Search-Party, or SSSP faced the forces of Planet Zetton. Kiriyama became the captain of this defense squad as Ultra One and was then joined by Furuhashi, Ultra Two, then Soga Ultra Three, Amagi Ultra Four than finally Anne who was codenamed Ultra Five. A few months later they fought Alien Cool which is when Dan Moroboshi joined as Ultra Six. He joined in their effort to protect the Earth from alien invaders and/or their terrible monsters. Then during Alien Cool's attack on Earth another alien appeared, but instead of attacking the Earth like Alien Cool the new alien defeated Alien Cool and rescued all the hostages Alien Cool had kidnapped, amazed by the new alien's help, the Ultra Guard made the alien their unofficial seventh member, Ultraseven. Unknown to them until their last battle with Reconstructed Pandon, Anne revealed that Dan was Ultraseven. The fate of Ultra Guard following Reconstructed Pandon's defeat varied. In the main timeline, it was decommissioned and was replaced by a completely different defense team few years later.
Heisei Ultraseven (1994)
The Heisei Ultraseven series reveals an alternate timeline where the events that occurred in Ultraseven was the only age of monsters, and Ultraseven was the only Ultra to come to Earth. The Ultra Guard were under Furuhashi's leadership and after Ultraseven's return to Earth but in a comatose state, the team and the whole TDF resort to protect him by placing the Ultra inside a warehouse. When two Alien Pitts tried to invade the Earth by having Anne's son, Dan as a hostage and killing Ultraseven. However, the Ultra awoke from his slumber and foil Alien Pitts' plans with the help of TDF. Since then, Ultraseven had been assisting the new Ultra Guard in protecting the Earth.
Heisei Ultraseven (1998 - EVOLUTION)
When most of the Ultra Guard members had promoted to the TDF officers, new members joined in lead by Captain Shiragane. Dan/Ultraseven secretly assisted them by capturing one of them, Masaki Kazamori and placed the boy inside his capsule while disguised as the said boy.
Sometime later, Alien Valkyrie had destroyed the TDF Lunar Base and sets his eye to eliminate Ultraseven by possessing each members of the Ultra Guard as Dan/Seven knocked them one-by-one until there was only Kazamori under his control. At his own pleading Dan shot the boy, mortally wounding him. With his host now useless Valkyrie attempted to take over Dan, but he realized that his possession on Ultras would be beyond his powers and instead grew into giant form to battle Seven. After Seven emerged victorious, he was forced to merge with Kazamori but since he had his own human form, this resulted their bodies swapped. Nonetheless, Dan/Kazamori teamed up with the Ultra Guard to exterminate extraterrestrial threats. During the final arc of the 1999 Heisei Ultraseven, "I Am an Earthling," Kazamori/Dan's secret had been exposed by a female Nonmalt that wanted revenge for her people's genocide. Dan/Kazamori was chased by xenophobic humans, which included Kaji, a former member of the Ultra Guard who became a TDF officer during this time; until the Ultra Guards freed him as Kazamori turned into Ultraseven and went to the TDF vault to find the content about the already excavated casket. Following the relevation of the latter, Dan/Kazamori confronted the disguised Nonmalt, transformed into Ultraseven and killed Zabangi, which was summoned by the Nonmalt to destroy any evidence about the confidential Omega File. Ultraseven separated with him as the boy's prior injuries had fully healed and he had to return to the Land of Light to face his punishment after his interference in a civil war.
Five years after Ultraseven left the Earth again, Kazamori, alongside Satomi, had retired from the team. While they were gone, Yuki Kisaragi, who had previous experiences as a TDF security staff, was added to the team. Following the incident involving Rumi's abduction by an Alien Pegassa, Satomi resumed her duties as an Ultra Guard member.
