Plot Summary

  • In 1987, Captain William "Buck" Rogers pilots his space shuttle on a mission but a meteor storm freezes him into an orbit that returns him to Earth 500 years later. In 2491, his shuttle is found and captured by the Draconian flagship, under the command of Princess Ardala and her second-in-command Kane. Reviving him, they return him to Earth after planting a homing beacon aboard his shuttle to track a path through Earth's defense barrier. Buck is under arrest for espionage and learns that Earth has been rebuilt over the centuries in his absence following a nuclear holocaust. Buck Rogers must now adjust to the 25th century, and convince the Terrans that the Draconians are planning to conquer Earth.
