In 1987, Capt. William “Buck” Rogers, on a space mission to launch a probe, is accidentally put into suspended animation in an orbit that only returns his shuttle to our solar system 500 years later. His dormant ship is captured by a alien force called The Draconians, led by Princess Ardala.
Reviving him, they trick him into returning to Earth after secretly planting a tracer on his shuttle to learn the path through Earth's defence Barrier.
The Terran Space Force intercepts him and guide him in. Now, Buck Rogers must adjust to a new time, address the suspicions of the Terrans who are convinced he is a spy and protect Earth from the threat that the Draconians secretly pose.
