13JUPITER II FROM LOST IN SPACE
Okay, this is a film list, not a TV list. Certainly the most iconic version of this ship was featured in the 1965-’68 television series, Lost in Space: the more numerically named Jupiter 2. It basically looked like your typical 1950s flying saucer. But it more or
less does make an appearance in the 1998 movie, as Jupiter I, the vehicle that launched Jupiter II into orbit. Have we confused you with the names yet? And Netflix is evidently preparing to reboot the series, so we’ll certainly have yet another version of Jupiter 2/II. Jupiter Dos, maybe? Jupiter 2.2?
The film version was fairly slick in its own right, much more streamlined and oval, but still retaining the essential saucer shape. The movie itself was nothing to write home about, sucking the campy humor out of original series and taking itself way too seriously. But at least they made some nods to the original, including that Jupiter 2-ish Jupiter I.
