Synopsis: In 1997, the Earth suffers from overpopulation and natural resource depletion. Professor John Robinson, his wife, Maureen, their children, Judy, Penny, Will, and their friend and pilot, Major Don West, are chosen to travel on the Jupiter 2 to Alpha Centauri to colonize a habitable planet discovered in that system. After the Robinsons are placed in suspended animation, but before the launch, staff medical doctor / foreign double agent Dr. Zachary Smith sneaks aboard to sabotage the mission. He reprograms the ship's robot B-9 to destroy the ship shortly after it leaves Earth. He becomes trapped during launch, however, and his extra weight throws the Jupiter 2 off course, causing it to encounter a meteor storm. The robot's rampage causes the ship to become lost.
