Season 1Edit

In 1987 National Aeronautics and Space Administration launches a manned probe on a 5 month trip around the solar system. The probe's pilot is Captain William "Buck" Rogers. Something goes wrong, however, and Buck's life support systems are frozen and he is propelled into deep space. When the spacecraft returns to the vicinity of Earth, the year is 2491. Buck awakens from his deep cryogenic sleep to find Earth in the aftermath of a late 20th Century World War III. Because of his piloting skills Buck becomes a valuable member of the Earth Defense Directorate, which is headed by Dr. Elias Huer. Buck also finds himself a part of a fighter squadron headed by Colonel Wilma Deering. Among his other compatriots are Twiki--a likable robot who becomes Buck's pal--and Dr. Theopolis--a mechanical brain who is part of Earth's Computer Council.

Season 2Edit

In the show's second season, Buck, Wilma, and Twiki join the crew of a starship named Searcher. The ship, commanded by Admiral Asimov, is on a mission to locate the lost tribes of Earth -- humans who fled their home world after World War III. Also aboard the Searcher are scientist Dr. Goodfellow and Crichton -- a snobbish robot built by Dr. Goodfellow. The humans are later joined by Hawk -- a birdman whose people were hunted almost to extinction by a band of murderous humans. The second season of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century took a drastic change from it's first season. With only three of the original characters carried over, the producers were hoping for a larger audience as they made it a little more like Star Trek. Unfortunately, the show had even worse ratings then before and thus with a short second season the show was cancelled.
