Buck Rogers and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century and all of their related marks, logos and characters are currently owned by Legendary Pictures, after a series of extensive lawsuits where multiple parties sought ownership of the rights to this classic character.  The writer of this site does not know if NBC Universal or Glen A. Larson Productions (responsible for the much loved 70s and 80s TV series) have any claim to either (Buck Rogers or Buck Rogers in the 25th Century) as of the time of this writing (July 2022).  The content inspired by Buck Rogers in the 25th Century on this site is not endorsed or sponsored by, or affiliated with, any known rights holders, and are works of fan fiction.

One the oldest and most endearing science fiction tales is that of Buck Rogers, and, as you can see from the above disclaimer, he’s probably one of the more contested intellectual properties around!

Before Flash Gordon, Star Trek and Star Wars, there was Buck Rogers, a man lost in time, who teams up with a beautiful woman from the future called Wilma Deering.

First appearing as Anthony Rogers in the 1928 novella, Armageddon 2419 AD, he wasn’t known as Buck Rogers until the 1933 novella, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, which rewrote his origin story.

Since then, Buck has featured in books, on radio, and in various incarnations on television and in film.
