Brigadier Gordon (no first name given) is a retired training instructor and former flight officer in the Earth Defense Directorate.
He came out of retirement in 2491 a.d. when the Directorate was disastrously short of the fighter pilots needed for an urgent pre-emptive assault on an enemy fleet.
Gordon was portrayed by former Olympic athlete and veteran actor Buster Crabbe, who also played Flash Gordon in the 1936 movie serial of the same name and its two sequels, and in 1939 played the title role of the Buck Rogers serial.
