Jupiter 2 PodshipEdit

The Jupiter 2 Podship was one of many pods that were part of the Jupiter Mother-Ship in the unaired 2004 pilot, The Robinsons: Lost In Space.

The Mother-Ship would make the journey to the planet, Nova, with a host of pods and space colonists. Once at Nova, the pods would jettison from the Jupiter Mother-Ship, land on Nova, and then become the space colonists' homes. The Robinson family were assigned Podship 2, which would eventually become the Jupiter 2. However, the Mother-Ship never reached Nova due to the alien attack on the Jupiter Mother-Ship as it was leaving our solar system. As the Jupiter Mother-Ship was attacked, many of the space colonists escaped in their pods, including the Robinson Family in the Jupiter 2.

The Jupiter 2 Podship is not seen until almost the very end of the episode. It appears quite different from the spacecraft in the original show. It seems to be made of a type of dark-gray metal, but the images are so poor that it is hard to tell. Much of the darkness of the ship could be due to battle scars from the alien attack. 

The inside of the Jupiter (while still attached to the Mother-Ship) appeared mostly white. Although it might appear to some to be rather spacious and comfortable, Judy thought the ship to be rather small. Judy compares her room to a walk-in-closet. Unlike other Jupiter 2 from the original series, this one has a bathroom and toilet (although the original Jupiter 2 did feature what was supposebly a bathroom area, athough it was never used or referenced in the show). The Jupiter 2 Podship also had a viewport on the front top of the ship which contained the controls and two pilot seats. The bedrooms are never seen and it is unknown if there is more than one deck.

Although the Jupiter 2 Podship was actually meant to land on Nova and provide a permanent home for the Robinsons, the ship is still very spaceworthy and capable of high speeds. The fastest speed intended for the ship is Mach 8; however, with some fine tuning, the ship was able to reach warp speeds and was capable of hyper-space.
