The Ghost Planet

EPISODE SYNOPSIS: The Jupiter is drawn irresistibly into the orbit of a strange planet. It is inhabited entirely by Cyborgs under the control of a gigantic Cybernetic Brain. The Cyborgs want to capture the Castaways and use them as slave workers. Smith is gullible enough to leave the spaceship, followed by Will. The Robot, who has been sent to reconnoiter the situation, swears allegiance to the Cyborgs and is set in charge of Will and Smith who are put to work on an assembly line. However, he is really waiting his chance to rescue them and helps the family make a fast getaway with the Cyborgs in hot, but vain, pursuit.
