The Prisoners of Space

EPISODE SYNOPSIS: The Earth People are indicted by the Galaxy Tribunal of Justice for crimes committed in space. Their camp-site is enclosed by an energized fence keeping them all prisoner. They are summoned, one at a time, to answer charges. A visual memory machine recounts all their adventures to date. Smith, afraid of being found out, tries to escape but is forced to return by the Robot. The Tribunal eventually finds the Robinsons not guilty but Smith guilty on all counts. While the Tribunal is debating his punishment, the Robinsons think of a way to save him by declaring him insane. The Tribunal accepts this defense and orders Smith for the future to be placed in the custody of the Robot.
