Buck Rogers in the 25th Century[edit | edit source]
In 1987, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) launches Ranger 3 on a five month trip around the solar system. The probe's pilot is Captain Buck Rogers. However, something goes wrong, Buck's life support systems are frozen and he is propelled into deep space. When the spacecraft returns to the vicinity of Earth, the year is 2491. Buck awakens from his deep cryogenic sleep to find Earth in the aftermath of a late 20th Century nuclear World War III. Because of his skills, Buck becomes a valuable member of the Earth Defense Directorate, which is headed by Dr. Elias Huer. Buck also finds himself a part of a fighter squadron headed by Colonel Wilma Deering. Among his other compatriots are Twiki--a likable robot who becomes Buck's pal, and Dr. Theopolis, a mechanical brain who is part of Earth's Computer Council.
