  • Coming Soon


William "Buck" Rogers, Wilma and Hawk leave for a planet to search for crystals needed to power the Searcher. After landing they find a young girl inhabiting the planet, and also a strange mummy-like creature that continually attacks the search party. The super-computer Crichton believes that the amnesia-stricken girl will, in time, mutate into a mummy creature herself, as it is the natural evolution of her species.
