In 1987, NASA launches the last of America's deep space probes. Piloted by Captain Buck Rogers, the Ranger III spacecraft is blown out of its trajectory by a shower of meteorites. Rogers' life support systems are frozen by the searing cold. Unconscious, he is unaware that his ship is hurtling through space at incredible speed . . . into the 25th century!
Buck Rogers finds Earth of the 25th Century to be quite different than when he left. He works with the Earth Defense Force to save the planet from it enemies both human and alien.
