Re: STAR TREK the enemy of LOST IN SPACE?

How about the shuttlecraft interior that clearly doesn't fit into the exterior?

Re: STAR TREK the enemy of LOST IN SPACE?

That's pretty minor, don't you think?

And in any case that was mainly done to make it easier to shoot on that set.

The J-2 interior/exterior was off by a good 40 to 50%. The shuttlecraft 10 to 20% at most.

Of course at the time the J-2 model was made the ship was supposed to have only a single level. After that was changed, Irwin Allen wasn't willing to spend the money on a new model. Or a new full sized mock-up that would have been needed to go with it.

Re: STAR TREK the enemy of LOST IN SPACE?

The thing that's really out of proportion is how much more some people object to issues in the Abrams movies versus entirely equivalent concerns with the earlier movies or shows. But then, a decade ago, people were applying the exact same double standard to ENT's problems vis-a-vis earlier shows' equivalent problems. And a quarter-century ago they were nitpicking TNG to death the same way. It's not that the newest thing has bigger flaws, it's just that we haven't had as much time to get used to their flaws and gloss them over/rationalize them in our minds.

Re: STAR TREK the enemy of LOST IN SPACE?

My point is that it happens in just about every TV show. Arguably, the hangar deck we see in Trek doesn't fit into the ship, either, and neither do a lot of the movie sets fit into the Enterprise hull.

It's a lot more obvious when you see the actors getting in and out of the Jupiter 2 mockup. The exact scale of the Enterprise and its shuttlebay isn't something you're going to notice until you start drawing up your own deck plans.

I'll bet that most viewers of Lost in Space never noticed, either.

I was a viewer of LiS and I noticed. Not when I was 6, but by the time I was 10...

It's blatantly obvious even to casual viewing. "Hey, that ship isn't any bigger than my living room...how do they fit all those rooms in there?"

Yeah... I often wondered how the second level could fit inside the Jupiter II as shown, and the third level was even harder to swallow.

Agree. The season three episode "Space Creature" revealed the Jupiter II third level Power Core which was a set way too big.

It's quite simple. Doctor Smith designed it. Doctor.......Smith.

Did you also notice that the Brady and Bunker house interiors couldn't fit within the exteriors shown?

During The Brady Bunch season 2 it is stated that the attic was a crawl space height and then in season 4 the attic was now a full sized room that became Greg's bedroom.
