Running alongside Star Trek‘s original series at the dawn of the Space Age, Lost in Space presented a strikingly different vision for the future of human exploration in space. Lost in Space imagines deep space colonization as homesteading: the series is based on the classic novel The Swiss Family Robinson, and it blends domestic squabbles among members of a nuclear family with malfunctioning robots, emergency landings, rocket suits, Cold War espionage, and perilous alien encounters.
