Synopsis

In 1987, NASA launched a space exploration shuttle, Ranger 3, controlled by Captain William "Buck" Rogers. But, caught in a meteor rain, its flight plan is diverted and it derives in space in a state of hibernation to reappear until 5 centuries later.

The flagship of Draconia, a dynasty that made a master of ¾ of the universe, crosses its path while going to earth to sign a cooperation treaty. In fact, Princess Ardala hides hostile intentions, but the sight of this space shuttle inspires her a ploy likely to reveal the secret entrance to the defensive shield of the planet. It therefore returns Buck Rogers and its shuttle to the ground after having previously hid on board a transmitter.

Many things have changed in the twenty-fifth century: ravaged by a nuclear holocaust, the land is populated at 95 % of criminals and other mutants. With the exception of New Chicago, a new city which, protected from anarchy and radiation, is home to the headquarters of the Earth defense board.

Buck Rogers is greeted by Colonel Wilma Bearing, Doctor Huer and Doctor Théopolis, an electronic brain worn as a medallion by Twiki, a small robot with summary language.

When the transmitter is discovered, the federal directory condemns him to death ... Buck Rogers will eventually prove his good faith and save the land from the attack by Draconians ...
