THE RETURN OF THE FIGHTING 69TH

GUEST STARRING:
Elizabeth Allen, Eddie Firestone, Peter Graves, Robert Hardy, Robert Quarry, K.T. Stevens and Woody Strode

THE PLOT:

While on a training mission, Buck and Wilma are asked to chase a stolen freighter which leads them to a dense astroid feild which results in the deaths of the recruits as they charge into the field.

Buck finds out that the frighter was carrying antique nerve gas stolen by weapon smuggers Corlis and Roxanna Trent. But the only thing these two want is revenge on the Earth, because three years ago, they were horribly disfigured while trying to escape a patrol, a patrol lead by Wilma Deering.

So the only way to stop these maniacs from using the nerve gas and kill everyone on Earth is to bring Noah Cooper out of retirement. But Noah won't do it without his old squadron the Fighting 69th. But they were grounded by wilma for being two old, can Buck convince Wilma to allow the Fighting 69th to pentitrate the field or is Earth is doomed.

THE OPINION:

This is a pretty good episode. Peter Graves did a great job as Noah Cooper. The villians were great and the plotline works. It's interesting to see an old enemy of Wilma arrive.
