In the year 2082, the Earth was invaded by aliens after it was long determine that existence of extra terrestrials was long thought to be science fiction. Major cities crumbled from the destruction of the beings from beyond the stars. The invasion came to a halt when Earth's own armed forces led by Col. John Robinson fought off the invaders and thus Earth won the battle which came to be known as "Robinson's Raid". 15 years have passed by and John Robinson attends a ceremony for his retirement from his services in defending the Earth from alien threat. It was an honoring ceremony, except John's kids aren't that excited about it because John hardly spent that much time with them.

This unaired pilot was not picked up for a series. See more »
When Will and David are threatened to get blown out into space, they seem to be suspended in mid-air, just grabbing some handle. However, Will's cables are clearly visible in two or three shots. The wires and the temporary music tracks would have been removed if this pilot had been picked up. See more »
I found this while browsing, don't remember where. The quality kinda sucked (352x240 at 1150 kbps) but I was curious about it. Sadly, I wasn't overly impressed with it. It was kinda standard TV, but still almost entertaining enough.
Huge goof: When Will and David are threatened to get sucked out into space, they seem to be suspended in mid-air, just grabbing some handle, However, Will's cables are clearly visible in two or three shots.
Also kinda goofy is the use of 2003 Battlestar Galactica music (Richard Gibbs' "Are You Alive?", "Main Title" and "By Your Command") and right after that, Thomas Newman's music from American Beauty (track no. 9 Bloodless Freak").
The morphing of Penny into a baby is mildy surprising, maybe they were gonna use it as an arc, like Penny gets sucked into so time-space warp and returns as a teen, preteen or fully grown adult, depending on which actress the network owes a favour to.
And Jayne Brook as mom Maureen is hotter than Adrianne 'big chin' Palicki as daughter Judy, that's never a good sign. I'm not sad that it's not picked up, but i'd not have minded watching it on TV. Buying it or giving it space on my hard drive, nah.
