Space Patrol -  Galactic police force featured on the children's sci-fi adventure SPACE PATROL/ABC/1950-55.

Cast of SPACE PATROL

Set in the 30th century, the Space Patrol maintained law and order in the solar system from its headquarters on the artificial planet, Terra, located midway between Earth and Mars.

Space Patrol members/associates included:

  • Ed Kemmer as Commander Buzz Corry
  • Lynn Osborn as Cadet Happy
  • Ken Mayer as Major Robbie Robertson
  • Nina Bara as Miss Tonga, an ex-con
  • Paul Cavanugh as Mr. Carlisle, Secretary General of the United Planets
  • Virginia Hewett as his daughter, Carol Carlisle

The Space Patrol's trusty spacecraft was the Terra IV (and finally the Terra V), a long dart shaped ship with portholes and fins that ran two-third the length of the craft. The ship took off and landed vertically.

Space Patrol's nemesis was the evil Prince Baccarratti (Bela Kovacs).
