With three other distinguished Ranger captains, Brooks witnessed and helped promote the transformation of the elite Frontier Battalion into the Ranger Force. As a state legislator, he brokered the creation of a South Texas county that bears his name today, and where he served for twenty-eight years as county judge.
He was the quintessential enforcer of frontier justice, scars and all. Spellman has authored five books, including Captain John H. By then, pop guns were considered old-fashioned, and even the Buck Rogers franchise was losing its luster, having been overtaken by real-world events and the prospect of actual manned space flight. By , Daisy lost its exclusive license to the Buck Rogers name and even dropped any pretense of making a toy raygun.
Its final offering was a reissue of the XZ with a garish red, white, blue and yellow color scheme, dubbed the Zooka. The Buck Rogers rocket pistol that had started it all 20 years earlier had been overtaken by the real world bazooka. A proper raygun needed to actually project some sort of ray if it were to capture the imaginations of would-be space travelers of s Americans. Enter the era of the plastic battery -powered flashlight raygun.
Pressing the trigger activated not only the flashlight beam which had interchangeable colored lenses for differently colored "rays" but also an electronic buzzer.

It could, therefore, be used as a pretend raygun but also as an actual Morse Code signal device. This toy, and its successor, the Norton-Honer Super Sonic Ray Gun , was featured prominently in the actual Buck Rogers newspaper strips of the time, many of which concluded with a secret message in a Morse Code variant called the Rocket Rangers International Code , the key to which was available only by sending as self-addressed stamped envelope to the newspaper syndicate or the " cheat sheet " included in the package with the toy.

The first is a vintage version of Buck Rogers as he appeared in the original comic strip. This scale figure of Buck wears the s period uniform including visor leather like plastic helmet and vest, a glass bubble space helmet, a red light up plastic flame jet pack, a mini gold colored metal XZ Disintegrator Ray Pistol and a wooden slotted lid box with the limited edition number up to Buck Rogers' name has become proverbial in such expressions as "Buck Rogers outfit" for a protective suit that looks like a space suit.
For many years, all the general American public knew about science fiction was what they read in the funny papers, and their opinion of science fiction was formed accordingly. Such was the fame of Buck Rogers that this became the basis for one of the most fondly remembered science fiction spoofs in a series of cartoons in which Daffy Duck portrayed Duck Dodgers. There were also two sequels to this cartoon, and ultimately a Duck Dodgers television series.
Buck Rogers is featured in Steven Spielberg 's blockbuster sci-fi movie E. The Buck Rogers appellation has become a particularly descriptive term for vertical landings of spaceships , which was the predominant mode of rocket landing envisioned in the pre- spaceflight era at the time Buck Rogers made his original appearance. While many science fiction authors and other depictions in popular culture showed rockets landing vertically, typically resting after landing on the space vehicle's fins , Buck Rogers seems to have gained a special place as a descriptive compound adjective.
For example, this view was sufficiently ingrained in popular culture that in , following a successful low-altitude test flight of a prototype rocket, a writer opined: "The DC-X launched vertically, hovered in mid-air The spacecraft stopped mid-air again and, as the engines throttled back, began its successful vertical landing.
