The Hubble telescope picks up a large cloud of unknown particles. An analysis reveals that they contain a chemical that could be used for cryogenic suspension experiments. Anthony “Buck” Rogers, a former US Air Force pilot, is selected for the mission to get a full reading of the cloud's chemical elements, so they can be genetically duplicated. The quest could have not come at a worse time for him; he is about to get married to the authoress Gwendoline Parnell. Being a former geology student, she supports the endeavour placed on his shoulders. Spurred on by the promise that he and Gwen will marry on his return, he sets off to achieve his objective. However, the NASA scientists have underestimated the gravitational forces, and the shuttle, Challenger XII, is drawn into the cloud. The elements freeze his life support system, which initiates a form of cryogenic suspension, which lasts for four centuries. He awakes aboard an alien spaceship in the year 2508, but tells himself that he is dreaming. “Buck” is soon made aware that this isn't the case, when he tries to contact Houston. He is intercepted by several strange spacecraft, and guided to a city within a dome situated in one of the oceans. Once there, he learns that he has slept for four hundred years. His arrival raises suspicions that he is a spy for space pirates. Recalling that he saw one of their ships aboard the spacecraft that rescued him, he decides to prove that Earth is about to invaded by Draconian forces.
