Buck Rogers in the 25th Century Wiki

Roxanne Trent was one of the antagonists in the episode Return of the Fighting 69th

Character Biography[]

Her plan was to use 20th century nerve gas to destroy Earth in revenge for the injuries she sustained in an earlier confrontation with Wilma. Roxanne sustained these injuries when she fell into the burning cargo hold of her ship, after the illicit weapons she and Commander Corliss were transporting exploded. Roxanne only survived due to Corliss risking his life to pull her to safety.[N 1]

Powers And Abilities[]

As a result of her injuries, Roxanne possessed a robotic hand of enormous strength.  She was able to crush Wilma's hand until she began to writhe in agony, and could also dent metal when striking it in anger.


Despite the apparent destruction of their base, Roxanne and Corliss were captured alive, and received medical care from the Earth Defense Directorate.[1]



  1. Wilma pointed this out to Roxanne when Wilma and Buck were held captive by Roxanne and Corliss in October 2491.
