Erin Gray, as Wilma Deering, was one of my earliest crushes. She supplanted Barbie Benton and Cheryl Ladd as the one woman for me. I really enjoy the first season of Buck Rogers in the 25th century and how strong she was. There were more than a few out of character moments in that first season. Those were nothing compared to the second season where she was demoted to mere “eye candy” and a prop. The annoying robot, Crichton, had more to do with the weekly plots than she did. It was a shame, but I am still a huge fan of, what I will always remember to be a strong character.
