Steven Spielberg's Amblin Studios produced this rather slow-moving cross between a soap opera and Lost In Space. It was set 200 years in the future, a time when earth's pollution had forced humans to live in confining space stations and produced a generation of children who were sick from the lack of a normal environment. Hoping to help her young son Ulysses (who already had to wear clumsy life-support apparatus), courageous scientist Devon Adair hijacked a spaceship and with an intrepid group of adventurers set off for an unspoiled Earth-like planet that promised a new beginning. Devon's little band included John, a high-tech mechanic, and his resourceful preteen daughter, True; Julia, the group's physician, who turned out to be a spy; Yale, a cyborg; Alonzo, a cocky but gifted pilot; Morgan, a conniving, cowardly government agent; and Morgan's young wife, Bess.

Unfortunately, they crash-landed on the wrong side of the planet, so the pioneers patched together their remaining equipment and set off in their big red Hummer vehicle on the long journey to their target destination, New Pacifica, where other humans were supposed to be waiting. Along the way, they encountered a variety of bizarre life forms, who looked threatening but were not necessarily unfriendly. Among them were the Terrians, corpselike dwellers of the underground who communicated with them through Alonzo's dreams; Grendlers, raggedy, slobbering scavengers; and little Kobas, who were cut but potentially lethal. Most of the stories were moralistic, about caring, trusting, and how Earth 2 and its denizens will be good to us if we can only be good to them.
