Summary
  • "Before Star Trek, there was Space Patrol. Science fiction television has its roots in this live, action-packed series that captured the imagination of Americans from 1950 to 1955, when space travel was just a dream. Real-life World War II hero Ed Kemmer, who played Commander Buzz Corry in this ABC mega-hit, still receives letter from ex-kids claiming that Space Patrol changed their lives."
  • "This book explores the freewheeling spirit of live TV, where anything could go wrong before millions of viewers - and often did. It spotlights (often in personal interviews) the risk-taking Space Patrol cast and crew who laid vital groundwork for television today. Included are episode logs for both television and radio shows as well as a complete guide to Space Patrol memorabilia. This book transports readers to a time when TV provided enduring role models for people of all ages, and it raises the all-important question: Where have all the heroes gone?"--Jacket
