From an ad in The New Monthly: "A crossover novel in which the Jupiter-2 is rescued by the Enterprise
and is caught in the Trek adventures, until Kirk and company return the Robinson clan to Alpha Centauri.
Certain experiences in both crews' pasts play havoc in this 'Lost in Space' romp. Find out what
happens to all your favorite characters in this final chapter."
Reactions and Reviews:
Best part is actually the author's impassioned plea for the quality of the first season of Lost in Space,
which made me curious to see them and find out if I would agree. The story is entertaining but pretty
gushy. Enterprise is time-travelling to Earth to record events of the Eugenics War era, and rescues the
party of the Jupiter-2. Kirk tries to take them to their proper arrival date on Alpha Centauri, but is
thwarted with every try - first through solar breakaway moves, then at the Guardian. Meanwhile, the
Robinson party relive some of their episodes, through the Shore Leave planet and the Guardian. Will and
Penny each rescue future love interests, and much of the story revolves around eventual amicable
resolution of the craven Smith's relationship with John and Don, who actually do beat him up after
threatening for so long. Finally, going beyond the Barrier, they find the source of the interference - a
type of god made of neutrinos, who keeps worlds and times in place, and now judges that the Enterprise
must be destroyed. It is saved by Penny, who recognizes one voice as her "Mister Nobody" and makes
an emotional plea.
