EPISODE SYNOPSIS: Smith and Will are approached by some handsome aliens whose leader, Nexus, says they have come from the planet Andronica looking for a king. When Smith hears that their world is filled with every imaginable luxury, he arranges to get himself chosen for this role. Attended by Andronicans in regal style, Smith is preparing to leave for his new kingdom when an ugly, hairy creature appears and tells him that these handsome people are not the inhabitants of Andronica but human-like robots made in order to deceive him into becoming their king. When he arrives he is to be sacrificed to ensure prosperity for his subjects. The Robinsons are uneasy about Smith’s future and have prevented the androids from contacting their spaceship. To allay their suspicions the ugly Andronican creates an exact robot replica of Smith which he sends to the Robinsons.
