    THE QUESTIONS MUST BE ABOUT ANY SCI-FI VIDEO,TV SERIES OR MOVIE EXEMPT STAR WARS.

    An interesting question, the original William Anthony "Buck" Rogers was,in 1932,
    according to Nowlan?s original stories and comic strips, Rogers is a former U.S. Air Service support pilot who served in France during World War I. After being mustered out, he worked as a surveyor in Pennsylvania where he was trapped in a mine by a cave-in and overcome by a strange, radioactive gas that put him in a state of suspended animation for 500 years. Upon awakening (the beginning of the story), the first person he sees is Wilma Deering, who mistakes him for an outlaw and tries to shoot him. Grabbing her ray gun when she trips a root, he kills the outlaws and wins her confidence. Spotting Buck as a man to be trusted, she brings him up to date and tells him of the Mongol plot to dominate the world. Donning the jumping belt of one of the fallen outlaws, he joins Wilma for a tour of magnificent cites of "metalloglass" where 25th century citizens eat synthetic food, travel by air (roads are almost nonexistent), and have a number of ingenious art deco gadgets to do all the drudge work. In no time at all, Buck has become a captain of Earth?s military forces, a secret agent, an intelligence officer and head of the Rocket Rangers, with Wilma as his co-pilot and the brilliant Dr. Huer as his advisor. They spend the next 38 years battling the Mongols, Killer Kane and his untrustworthy partner-in-crime, the malevolently beautiful Ardala.

    But in the 1979 Movie, followed by the TV series, Buck was sent into a long range recon mission by NASA, on board the Ranger 3 Shuttle, he is trapped in an ice stormn and frozen for 500 years, to be awakened by Queen Ardala of the Draconians on their way to earth to sign a peace treaty, Buck is assumed to be a Draconian spy by members of the New Earth Order military, in particular, Colonel Wilma Deering, who becomes his trusted wingman.
    The latest revamp of Buck Rogers is in the form of a short lived RPG from a few years ago, that had all the action taking place in our own solar system, the planets and moons of which are now inhabited by colonists and are now divided by political subterfuge and the "Draconian" party.

    Short answer: the USS Ranger 3

    Q: Whats the name of the marine mother ship in Aliens?

    I do believe that the mother ship was the USS SULACO. I won't post a question yet, as I don't know if I am 100% right.If someone can confirm this I will post a question ASAP.

    Don't know about the film, but in the series it's The Zephyr.

    Who created the Daleks?

    I would have said the Zephyr was a shuttle not a Corvette, and said the film version was the "Roger Young" and the series version "Valley Forge"

    I have no idea about the TV series, but the correct answer is the Rodger Young. So Grizzly gets a go.

    And, my guess on SM's question is Davros.

    You're supposed to include a new question with your answer (I don't think your answer was right anyway but I'm not sure what answer is).
    I'll provide a new question. What character from the movie Aliens, also appears in the series Red Dwarf?

    after a check of IMDB the answer is none... there is a Munson in RD and a Hudson in A2 but that is as close as you're gonna get. And RoughneckChronicles.com describes the Zephyr as a drop ship, but no class of ship as a Corvette :)

    In THX 1138, who was his partner?

    Actually, the captain of Red Dwarf is the same guy as the leader of the settlers in Aliens(Director's Cut).

    Davros is the leader of the Daleks, not the creator, I think SM is asking who made up the Daleks concept. Someone else can answer that and the THX question :)

    Well answered PL. The captain from Red Dwarf was also the leader of the human colony at Hadleys Hope at the beginning of the film. I guess it was a trick question since it referred to a deleted scene but the directors cut is probably watche more than the original version these days.
    Now the answer for the THX question. The guy that wanted to be his partner who he ended up escaping with was SEN 5241, though he much preferred LUH 3417.

    Darn. Forgot to ask a new question.
    Here's an easier one with no tricks. What was the name of the model who helped the boys from International Rescue in Thunderbirds?

    Leslie Nielsen played Cmdr. John J. Adams in FP
    and I think the guy Soneil and PL were referring to is Mac MacDonald (actor not character... picky picky picky) :)

    On the Thunderbirds theme... what is the new series made by Gerry Anderson called?

    He did a recent series called Space Precinct. I haven't seen it though. I've heard it wasn't that great.

    New question. An easy on this time.

    Which actor from Battlestar Gallactica also had a major part in a tv series about a mercenary team? If you can only name the characters I'll pay it. The actor's name will be even better.
