An unmissable episode.
24 November 2007 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Another great episode from the first series, chock full of late 70s cheese, Cruise Ship To the Stars is particularly notable for the appearance of tragic Playboy playmate Dorothy Stratten, whose promising career was cut short two years later when she was killed by her estranged husband.

Stratten plays Miss Cosmos, an almost genetically perfect female who, whilst on a space cruise, becomes the target of two criminals (one of whom is super strong and can fire laser beams from her hand) who want to slice her body up with a laser, in order to sell it on the black market. Buck (Gil Gerard), Wilma (Erin Gray) and Twiki go undercover as passengers to try and stop the baddies from carrying out their ghastly plan.

Whilst on board, Buck meets Allison, a pretty passenger who suffers from blackouts and waking nightmares, who is on board with her boyfriend Jaior. But Allison is actually a transmute—a mutant with two personalities—and it is her alter-ego, Sabrina, who, along with Jaior, is planning on carving up the beauty queen for maximum profit.

With Stratton on board, the series' regular stunner Erin Gray has her work cut out for her getting noticed, but manages to do so (despite her awful wig) by first displaying her wonderful pins in a revealing dress, and then by indulging in a spot of crazy disco dancing whilst wearing what looks like a spotty shower curtain.

Also cutting the rug on the illuminated dance floor is Twiki, who gets his nuts in a twist over a gold ambuquad named Tina (whose catchphrase is 'Booty, booty, booty').

Meanwhile, Buck gets on with catching the villains by placing an order for some sonic pistols and ear-plugs (all will become clear by the end).
