Quotes from

George 'Buddy' Wade: I wouldn't call Dr. Huer exactly handsome, but I sure would give a lot to see his face right now.
Buck Rogers: [laughs] I bet you would Buddy.


Buck Rogers: I don't understand, sir. Who is this man called Killer Kane?
Professor Huer: He is the result of the stupidity of the men of your century. You failed to stamp out lawlessness and in the end the criminal became stronger than the law.

Facts about

This serial is probably based on an unofficial Flash Gordon story in which Flash Gordon travels to Saturn; this story was not and has never been part of the original Flash Gordon universe (it was illegally published in 1936).
The bullet cars used in the movie were the same ones used in Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars.
In the original Buck Rogers novelettes, Buck's enemy was the Han; in the comic strip, his enemy was the Mongols and later the Tiger Men of Mars. Neither of these impressive foes appeared in the serial - Kane was made the main villain. Buck's full name - not mentioned in the comic strip - is Anthony Rogers. Nowlan may have ordered it altered for length reasons.
