When I was growing up, many of the kids in my hometown loved watching Buck Rogers. I would watch it with them, but I must admit I was really just going through the motions. My heart belonged to classic Trek and to a lesser extent to Battlestar Galactica. Still, when you are young, a friend’s enthusiasm can be very contagious. I remember one friend being very excited when it was announced that they were making a video game version of Buck Rogers, and he must have been the only one to line up for a copy of “Buck Rogers: Planet of Zoom” when it came out.
