Storyline

After an uprising of miners on the asteroid Toros, the mining operator Kerk Belzak wishes to replace the human workers with robotic drones. He kidnaps Twiki so he can investigate the diminutive drone's unique circuitry and make cheap duplicates of Twiki to work in his mine. Buck Rogers goes after Belzak's enforcers, the Omniguard, three female paranormals with psychokinetic powers to save Twiki. Meanwhile, Wilma Deering has her hands full with a huge floating chunk of frozen oxygen that could destroy most of Earth's population once the iceberg veers off course. Written by Woodyanders

Buck Rogers: "Twiki is Missing"
19 August 2017 | by WuchakkSee all my reviews

PLOT: An authoritative operator of a mining asteroid (John P. Ryan) kidnaps Twiki in order to dissect him and create similar drones to work in his mines. Three females with psychokinetic abilities are commissioned, the lead woman being Stella (Anne-Marie Martin), who is manipulated via threats against her son. Meanwhile, Wilma contends with a colossal chunk of frozen oxygen that threatens to destroy a third of the Earth.

COMMENTARY: The best part about this episode is Anne-Marie Martin as Stella, particular when she's wearing the jaw-dropping black outfit in the last act. It's also heartwarming to observe Buck's love for Twiki as his little friend and, later, Twiki amusingly piloting a vessel to rescue Buck.
