Re: STAR TREK the enemy of LOST IN SPACE?

Well, Howell was defined more by greed and less by cowardice, and wasn't quite the pathological liar Smith was, but he took pride in his deviousness. Howell played essentially the same role in GI that Smith played in LiS or Dan Fielding did in Night Court: the comic villain, the member of the ensemble who repeatedly created conflict through his dishonesty and selfishness, while not being quite bad enough to be kicked out of the group or otherwise given a permanent comeuppance.
