Well, someone should find a way to believably fit the 2 1/2 decks of the Jupiter 2 into that small hull! I've seen many a J2 blueprint over the years, and none justify so much room within the hull.
If I correctly recall, when Bill Mumy helped script the plots for Innovations "Lost in Space" comic published in the 90s, in story it was established that a fair percentage of the the Jupiter's technology was based upon the reverse engineered hardware of an alien vessel having crashed on Earth and then "appropriated" by a mega-corp named, ahem, Allen Industries. Maybe the aliens whose tech we copied had partially mastered "relative dimensions in space" in addition to a compact hyperdrive.

Sincerely,

Bill
