The series premiered in
1955. Stopped in 1974.
The character of Jeff Hawke started
out as an RAF pilot, but soon he was travelling
space - supposedly during the 1990s - as a Flash
Gordon-like, heroic character. The righteous
Hawke (who is known as the First Citizen of the
Space Age) uses his many skills, which include
avial education and scientific knowledge, to help
the goodnatured aliens he meet. Strangely, many
of them look like sexy ladies, which makes Hawke's
tasks extra interesting, but he also maintains an
ironic distance to his work.
