A police detective in the asteroid belt, the first officer of an interplanetary ice freighter and an earth-bound United Nations executive slowly discover a vast conspiracy that threatens the Earth's rebellious colony on the asteroid belt.
Set ninety-seven years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, when a spaceship housing humanity's lone survivors sends one hundred juvenile delinquents back to Earth, in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.
Follows the journey of a time traveler from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will nearly destroy the human race.
Set 30 years in the future, colonization in space is now a reality, and the Robinson family is among those tested and selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. But when the new colonists find themselves abruptly torn off course en route to their new home they must forge new alliances and work together to survive in a dangerous alien environment, light-years from their original destination. Stranded along with the Robinsons are two outsiders who find themselves thrown together by circumstance and a mutual knack for deception. The charismatic Dr. Smith is a master manipulator with an inscrutable end game. And the roguish, but charming Don West is a highly-skilled, blue collar contractor, who had no intention of joining the colony, let alone crash landing on a lost planet.
This version has a similar plot to The Robinsons: Lost in Space (2004). In both, several Jupiter ships carrying different families are being transported by a mother ship, which ends up being damaged by an alien attack and the separate ships disperse in different directions. Jupiter 2 ends up getting lost in space. See more »
I really wanted to like this series. The special effects are excellent but that is about where it all ends. The writing is pretty amateurish, the acting is terrible. the father is pathetic in all respects and the mother is a pain. Dr. Smith's efforts to be nasty don't fit with her weak character acting and she just doesn't ring true.
I like the robot and his presence is enhanced by the lack lustre family he has been saddled with except maybe Will and Penny.
As dated as it is I think the original series had pizzaz this lot could only dream about. What a shame because besides looking good it is just awful.
