1 9 8 7 – 1 9 8 8 (USA/Japan)
52 x 25 minute episodes
Saber Rider is a futuristic sheriff who watches over a galaxy that has taken on aspects of the 1880s Wild West on Earth. He is the leader of the Star Sheriffs, a law enforcement unit of the Cavalry Command, the protectors of the universe.
Plaguing the galaxy are the Outriders, humanoid aliens from the Vapor Zone, who are led by the mysterious Nemesis and have the ability to travel between dimensions.
In later episodes Commander Eagle, leader of the Cavalry Command, and his genius daughter, April, create RAMROD, a spaceship that is capable of transforming into a giant robot.
The series is an edited and dubbed version of a 1984 Japanese series called Sei jûshi Bisumaruku (“Star Musketeer Bismarck”). Episodes were directly taken from that show but heavily edited and altered to appeal to the Western market.
Six new episodes were produced by World Events Productions to extend and explain their vision of the world of Saber Rider.
