A young woman, Felina Redding, has been kidnapped by criminals because she knows a great deal about the corporate secrets she possesses. Her employer, notorious smuggler Amos Armat, is also her father as well (the truth which Felina is unaware). Buck Rogers works with Major Marla Landers at the orbital casino resort Sinaloa, the gambling capital of the galaxy, in order to rescue Felina. However, Buck meets another damsel in distress, the beautiful Tangie, and must take on her employer, feared crime boss Morgan Velosi, who manages Sinaloa. While Landers uses her charm to distract Velosi, Buck rescues Felina before a hired interrogator, Carl Morpheus, can conduct a deadly mind probe on her. Written by

When the series started, it was not a certainty that Erin Gray
would sign on to reprise her movie role of Wilma Deering. As a result, Buck has a few different female sidekicks in early episodes, notably Juanin Clay
as Major Marla Landers in "Vegas In Space". Clay was intended as a possible replacement for Gray, until it was decided she would continue in the series. See more
