TIME OF THE HAWK PART 1 & 2
Barbara Luna, Lance LeGault, David Opatoshu and Sid Haig
Wilma and Buck are now asigned to the Earth ship Searcher, searching unexplored planets in the hopes of finding Earthlings
that might of fled to the stars when the nuclear war all but destroyed the Earth.
But they come across a starship that is all but destroyed and warns them, beware of Hawk. Turns out Hawk is one of two
last survivors of a once proud alien race who's last nesting ground was wiped out by drunken humans. Now Hawk is on a crusade
to kill all humans he comes across and Buck is sent to bring him in alive for trial.
As I said when this episode first debut in January 1981 after waiting months for it. "WHAT THE HELL?" Just because
the "NEILSON" ratings slip half a point, they totally re-write the show, which is bad enough, but they didn't even
have the balls to do a pilot movie telling us why Buck and Wilma joined this little intergalatic search party, what evidence
did they find to make them even think humans escaped the nuclear death by fleeing into space? How did they talk Buck into
going? These are all questions they didn't even bother answering. But as for Hawk, he is my favorite of the new characters
this season and makes a good villian and hero.
