Shiftless, selfish, bone-idle twits. These are apparently "space hippies", told by their great leader (a computer?!) to be useful.
Their job is to go blow up a planet.
Sadly, the Robinson family is vacationing on that planet at that time.
I dunno. The 'hippies' seem more like thuggy little brutish selfish toddlers than anything else, the 'spacecraft' they travel on has got to be the most ridiculous concoction ever (don't worry folks, they re-use the prop in later stories...), and the noise those "drills" they use seems more irritating than accurate. This one can readily be pased, there is nothing even remotely redeeming here.
