Neck break plot speed!!
12 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

This builds upon the great epic of Fugitive Alien. Don't worry if you missed the first and consider yourself lucky!

Captain Joe, Ken and the pals on the Baccus 3 are on a collision course with wackiness. Can the captured prisoner be trusted? What did Rocky eat for dinner? Will Capt. Joe abstain from drinking again? And what of Tammy's love for Ken? Lots of stuff happens. I thought the character development was better here since Rocky's "I don't like Ken" attitude is stronger than ever. Things get resolved, but Sandy Frank edits the whole thing and Ken ends up trying to liberate his home planet! I'm probably alone, but I wish this series went on!

Sandy Frank.....Sandy Frank....
