"Buck Rogers in the 25th Century" Planet of the Slave Girls (TV Episode 1979) Poster

Trivia

Answering Buck's query on where he learned his starfighter skills, Gordon says he was doing this before Buck was born. This line was actually Buster Crabbe and Gil Gerard stepping out of character temporarily. This is a reference to when Crabbe played Buck Rogers in the original 1939 series (Gil Gerard was born in 1943).
