Storyline

After the galactic beauty queen Miss Cosmos is attacked by a mysterious woman, Buck Rogers and Wilma Deering are assigned to protect her while she travels aboard a luxury space liner. There, Buck encounters Alison Michaels who suffers from periodic blackouts which her boyfriend, Jalor Davin, dismisses as mental stress caused by hypertension. After another attack against Miss Cosmos, Buck confronts the assailant, Sabrina, a wild-haired woman with superhuman strength and deadly psychokinetic powers. He begins to suspect and Sabrina and Alison are the same and that Jalor has been exploiting her powers so they can capture Miss Cosmos and sell her perfect genetics on the black market.

Buck Rogers: "Cruise Ship to the Stars"
14 August 2017 | by (Ohio/PA border) – See all my reviews

PLOT: Buck & Wilma are commissioned to protect a beauty queen (Dorothy Stratten) while traveling aboard a luxury space liner. Two passengers scheme to kidnap Miss Cosmos so they can cut her up (!) and hawk her perfect genetics on the galaxy black market. One of them is a wild-haired hottie with stunning super powers (Trisha Noble). Meanwhile, a troubled petite girl struggles with extreme bi-polar issues (Kimberly Beck) while her beau acts suspiciously (Leigh McCloskey). Brett Halsey is on hand as the cruise vessel captain.

COMMENTARY: Although blond Dorothy Stratten might be "genetically perfect" she's curiously not as beautiful IMHO as Wilma or the formidable Sabrina, the wild-haired villainess, or even the anxiety-ridden Alison (Kimberly Beck). Beck went on to star in 1984's "Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter," perhaps her most famous role in a respectable TV/B-movie career.

This is one of the more Star Trek-ian episodes with the split-personality angle being particularly interesting and effectively depicted. Twiki amusingly apprehends a girlfriend on the ship who has the peculiar catchphrase "Booty, booty, booty."
