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, the 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
