Whatever the virtues of the premise, this part simply isn't true. The original show was never going to end up "lost in space."
Probably not so much "lost" as "so deep into uncharted territory, they don't have a convenient connection to back home".
Although the original never went back to Earth, as early as Roddenberry's 1964 pitch document the Enterprise's mission included providing assistance to established Earth colonies.
Not so much "here be dragons" as "new frontier". It's five in the morning. So early I don't really give a shit about semantics.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
