Storyline

A pair of time travelers from Earth's distant future are sent back to the past by their superiors on a mission of observation. However, the pair use the trip to plot for the eventual takeover of Earth in the future by wiping out most of mankind with a deadly virus and using the planet of the giants as a staging base. They eventually run into the castaways and use them as unwitting accomplices to their plot. Eventually Steve, Mark and the others find out the pair's scheme and try to stop them before they change mankind's future. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Richard LaSalle score plagiarism -- nonsensical plot
6 April 2015 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Before anyone praises Richard LaSalle's score for this episode too much, let it be said that the opening segment -- especially over the flight of the "space pod" or whatever it is called here, quotes quite liberally and directly from Ralph Vaughan Williams' "Sinfonia Antartica" (Symphony No. 7), composed in the late 1940s and still very much under copyright, then and now. As to the episode itself, the plot is loonier and loopier than the worst ideas that Irwin Allen permitted to be foisted on VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA, with time travel and alien omniscience making most of what's gone on not much more comprehensible to us than it is -- which is not at all -- to the stranded Earth travelers. It's stories and episodes like this that helped bring LOST IN SPACE (which had worse, I agree) to a premature end, and killed this series after only two seasons (well, LAND OF THE GIANTS did have higher production costs, too . . . .)
