Seijuu Sentai Gingaman (Translated as, in literate English, as Starbeast Squadron Gingaman or Starbeast Squadron Galaxy-Man) is the 22nd installment of Tokusatsu's long-running Super Sentai series of Japanese children's programing that aired from February 1998 to February 1999.
Three thousand years ago, the Space Pirates Barban invaded Earth. The Starbeasts and the first Gingaman, warriors of the Ginga forest, fought them with the mystical power called Earth and eventually were able to imprison them. The Ginga people later cloaked their forest within marked boundaries and passed on the duty of Ginga warriors through generations.
Hyuuga , Hayate , Gouki , Hikaru and Saya are chosen as the 133rd warriors of the Star Beast Swords. Ryouma is very happy that his elder brother Hyuuga succeeds to the honorable title. When Elder Ohghi holds the succession ceremony of Star Beast Swords, an earthquake breaks the seal of Barban.
Ohghi orders the 133rd warriors to get the GingaBraces hidden in Roaring Mountain. However, the Barban attacks them to prevent the birth of the new Gingamen. During the battle, Hyuuga got swallowed into a crack in the ground which Captain Zahab of the Barban created. Enraged, Ryouma activates his hidden Earth power and awaken the Ginga Braces. The Gingaman fights together with the Starbeasts against the Barban, who desire to revive the Demon Beast, Daitanix, on whose 'corpse' they built their castle.

The Space Pirates Barban Edit
The Space Pirates Barban (宇宙海賊バルバン Uchū Kaizoku Baruban?) are group of pirates who have destroyed many planets along the Milky Way. They have their headquarters, the Rowdy Invincible Castle (荒くれ無敵城 Arakure Mutekijō?), mounted on the back of Daitanix. They once tried to invade Earth but the first generation of Gingaman and the Starbeasts sealed them in the bottom of the sea. 3,000 years later, an earthquake broke the seal and Barban was released, with plans of awakening Daitanix in our time. Its four great armies plot various strategies in order to achieve it.
