Pamela Hensley as Princess Ardala
The character of Princess Ardala, as portrayed by Pamela Hensley, simply oozed sex.
Always slinky to the extreme and wearing the least amount of clothing possible, Royal Princess of the dreaded Draconian Empire, and daughter of Draco, was both fascinated by and admired Buck Rogers - who much to her frustration continually refused her sexual advances.
Although the sexually charged princess only appeared in three episodes ("Awakening," "Escape From Wedded Bliss" and "Ardala Returns"), the beautiful and erotic Hensely and her character's complicated and engaging relationship with Buck made a lasting impression.
