Buck becomes involved with a futuristic rock group named Andromeda when a series of riots break out at all of their concerts. Buck's investigation finds that the band's manager, Lars Mangros, (Jerry Orbach) has been secretly encoding the group's music with behavior-altering sounds that create the riots. Buck is forced to convince Andromeda not to play at galactic-wide broadcast from the space station Musicworld, to prevent Mangros from causing chaos throughout the galaxy.
The song Andromeda plays during this episode is actually a song called "Odyssey Pt. 1" by Johnny Harris. It was released as a 7" vinyl single in 1980. The b-side was an alternate version called "Odyssey Pt. 2".
