THE SKY PIRATE
EPISODE SYNOPSIS: Tucker, a sky pirate, makes a forced landing on the planet as his spaceship is urgently in need of repairs. Holding Will as a hostage, he bargains with the Robinson to repair his ship in order to get the boy back. Will is fascinated by Tucker and his tale of pirate adventures in space. Tucker is being pursued by a “THING” from the planet Cygnet 4, his last stopover. He doesn’t know why. The “THING” tracks him down and, to escape it, Tucker and the family take refuge in the Jupiter 2. But when it looks as though they will all be destroyed Tucker leaves the ship to save the others. In his headlong flight he drops a curious forecasting instrument he had picked up while on Cygnet 4.
