In the year 2058, the Earth will soon be uninhabitable after the irreversible effects of pollution and global warming! Professor John Robinson, lead scientist of the Jupiter 2 Mission, will lead his family to the habitable planet Alpha Prime to prep it for colonization. The Jupiter 2 is equipped with a hyperdrive that allows faster-than-light travel, which will eventually be employed to evacuate the citizens of Earth. However hypergates must be constructed on Earth and Alpha Prime to provide stable points of departure and arrival. Dr. Zachary Smith is bribed by a terrorist organization to sabotage the mission, and ends up an unwilling stowaway as the ship blasts off.Written by

The best thing about this movie is the Close Captioning.
This movie is a monument to its own inanity. The Earth is dying, we have 20 years until the world cannot support human life. Resources are dangerously low, so what do the big brains do? Build a HUGE ship on earth to launch a little ship into space in the most inefficient manner possible. They should have built the little Jupiter 2 on that big space station. They send 1 family and a robot to build a hyperspace gate at the new world (keep in mind it is taking a LOT of resources and manpower to build the earth-based gate, there is no mention as to HOW the Robinsons are supposed to build the second gate. Upon arriving at Alpha prime they will need to build electronic factories, farms, mining operations and a space program to launch all the stuff they will need from Alpha prime into orbit around alpha prime so the family can build a gate to match the one back on earth. That should only take ... oh 150 years or so... HELLOOOOOOOOO? From this poorly planned last ditch effort we move along to getting "lost in space" and pretty much abandoning the human race to die, which the human race deserves if the people in charge actually expected this plan to work...
