Description by OLDIES.com:

Before "Star Trek," there was "Space Patrol." Science fiction television has its roots in this live, action-packed series that captured the imagination of Americans from 1950 to 1955, when space travel was just a dream. Real-life World War II hero Ed Kemmer, who played Commander Buzz Corry in this ABC mega-hit, still receives letters from ex-kids claiming that "Space Patrol" changed their lives.

This book explores the freewheeling spirit of live TV, where anything could go wrong before millions of viewers - and often did. It spotlights (often in personal interviews) the risk-taking "Space Patrol" cast and crew who laid vital groundwork for television today. Included are episode logs for both television and radio shows as well as a complete guide to "Space Patrol" memorabilia. This book transports readers to a time when TV provided enduring role models for people of all ages, and it raises the all-important question: Where have all the heroes gone?
