John occasionally mentioned that he wrote for the TV show Lost in Space, but was vague about the details. I was curious, though; it sounded interesting. Although John was a science fiction fan as a teenager, he wrote very little in the genre, and I wondered what he would do with it. I eventually discovered that he did indeed write a seven-page plot outline, but that it was rejected. Here, then, is the first part; I’ll post the second part later this week, so you can enjoy the pleasures of serialization.
