  • Episode Description
  • In the year 1997, the Robinson family is cryogenically suspended before their launch into space in the space-saucer Gemini 12 on man's first mission to colonize a planet orbiting Alpha Centauri. Soon after leaving Earth, a meteor swarm sends the Gemini 12 spiraling out of control, ending in a crash landing on an unknown planet. The Robinsons survive the crash and set up camp, but their preparations to head south to avoid the sudden onset of the cold season are hampered by One-Eye, the giant cyclops, trapping John and Don in a cave. After Will saves the men, and Penny is recovered after a turtle ride, the travellers journey to the tropics encountering along the way, the One-Eye again, fierce electrical storms, an underground city and a stormy sea crossing where they become caught in a whirlpool.moreless

    • Don West: (about flying the spaceship) If you wake up and you find me driving you'll know you are in trouble.

    Notes (3)

    • Dr. Zachary Smith, the "villain" of the regular series, does not appear in this un-aired pilot.

    • This series pilot is known as No Place To Hide, though this title appears nowhere in the production. The original working title for the planned series was originally The Space Family Robinson.

    • Many of the special effects sequences for this black and white pilot film were actually shot in color so that they could be reused later.

    Trivia (6)

    • The space ship that the Robinsons are launched in is called the Gemini XII, as an extension of the old Gemini space program. This will be changed to the Jupiter II in the regular series.

    • Maureen and John Robinson have a rare on-screen kiss.

    • The Gemini XII uses liquid oxygen or LOX, one of the physical forms of elemental oxygen, which is used by NASA to this day.

    • The song Will plays on the guitar is Greensleeves.

    • In this unaired pilot, the ship crashes as the result of a meteor shower, rather than from sabotage as in the second pilot/first episode.
