"Space Rockers" is the twenty-first episode of the 1st season of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.


  • Coming Soon


William "Buck" Rogers becomes involved with a futuristic rock group named Andromeda when a series of riots break out at all of their concerts. Buck's investigation finds that the band's manager, Lars Mangros, has been secretly encoding the group's music with behavior-altering sounds that create the riots. Buck is forced to convince Andromeda not to play at galactic-wide broadcast from the space station Musicworld, to prevent Mangros from causing chaos throughout the galaxy.


  • The song Andromeda plays during this episode is actually a song called "Odyssey, Part 1" by Johnny Harris.  It was released as a 7" vinyl single in 1980.  The B-side was an alternate version called "Odyssey, Part 2".
