Niko is a fictional character from The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers, a 1980s animated science-fiction western. Niko is a member of the Galaxy Rangers, an Earth-based interstellar law enforcement organization.
Niko is known as a brilliant archaeologist specialising in ancient cultures. She also possesses limited precognition, psychometry and psychokinesis. Niko's powers can be amplified for limited periods of time by BETA computers, via her Series Five Implant. She must touch an object to view images of the past and future - the stronger the charge from the implant, the more effective her powers become.
Born on the failed colony world of Alspeth, she was found after the destruction of her colony by Ariel from the haven world of Xanadu. Having been relocated to her new haven, Niko was raise and her innate psychic abilities were nurtured. At the age of 19, she left Xanadu to return to her people and joined the Galaxy Rangers. After the academy, she was accepted into the experimental Series 5 program.
She was later assigned to the Series 5 Rangers as their mystic and archaeological expert - due to the number of missions they embarked on involving new cultures and varied belief systems.
Niko's utility belt is equipped with a medical scanner, a radiation detector and various visual and audio recorders supplied by BETA and a consortium of universities interested in any data she may collect during her missions with the Galaxy Rangers.
