Synopsis

Buck breaks into a prison to free Jen Burton, where she has been falsely jailed for the murder of her boyfriend. The Earth Defense Directorate hopes to return her home so she can testify against the boyfriend, Malary Pantera, a pirate who has been raiding space lanes. Entering the prison while masquerading as a fellow prisoner, Buck finds Burton, frees her, and they head out across the barren desert terrain of the planet. However, traveling to the nearest spaceport is the least of Buck's problems, as Hugo, an indestructible android prison guard, is following their every move and will stop at nothing to capture the two Earthlings.
