Buck is haunted by the sight of a woman, who looks like his 20th century girlfriend, alive on present day Earth. Buck follows the young girl, but she continues to give him the slip until he catches her in the resort town of City-on-the-Sea. The stranger, named Leila, reveals that it is no coincidence that she looks like Buck's long-lost girl friend: her appearance has been purposely altered by an alien named Reev so that she could serve as a lure. With Buck captured by the aliens, Reev demands that Buck stop a shipment of arms to a planet his people have plans to conquer. Buck gets Wilma to detonate a warhead to fool Reev into thinking the shipment is destroyed. Reev orders his men to kill Buck, but Leila steps in front of Buck to take the laser blast. Buck defeats the aliens, but loses Leila, and his lost love again, as she tearfully dies in his arms. Written by
