ISLAND IN THE SKY
EPISODE SYNOPSIS: Island in the Sky
In the Derelict Alien ship’s control room, John had discovered a neighboring planet with a mass nearly equivalent to Earth. They decide to land there to make necessary repairs. While they orbit the planet, Robinson leaves the ship to land & investigate further. Smith who reprogrammed the Robot to respond only to his commands, tries to take over & return to Earth. Don foils him but, in the process, the ship crash lands. No one is hurt & the family sets out to find John who was only able to activate his ‘Para-jets’ in the nick of time before touching down on the planet’s surface. They find him on the edge of a crater along with a monkey-like creature that Penny adopts and names Debbie. Meanwhile, Smith reprograms the Robot to destroy anyone he finds alone excepting Don, whom Smith needs to pilot the ship back to Earth. The Robot finds Will alone & prepares to destroy him…
