THE FIRST THANKSGIVING ON A NEW WORLD!
A few tidbits: according to some sources, Prof. Robinson, in addition to all his other accolades, was originally conceived of as being an ordained minister as well. Although he was not so portrayed, there is still an interesting connection to the real historical Pilgrims, who of course celebrated the First Thanksgiving in the New World — as our little band of pilgrims is doing above.
In the 1600s, as you remember, a small group of Christians broke away from the Church of England to worship God in their own manner. They called themselves Separatists, to indicate their separation and independence from the Church of England. Because of persecution, they fled first to Holland, and finally to the New World — to what became the lovely seaside town of Plymouth, Massachusetts. Sadly, one member of their group had to stay behind in England because of his advancing age. The Pilgrims were very sad at leaving this man behind, because he had been their spiritual leader for many years, providing spiritual guidance and comfort to the small sect. He was a learned man, had served as a professor at Cambridge University, and had been a priest of the Church of England.
His name was John Robinson.

In The Written Word —our popular science fiction trilogy, Through Endless Skies! Together, the three stories A Penny Saved, Symphony Of An Angel, and Through Endless Skies comprise one complete novel-length collection of Lost In Space adventure, romance, thrills, humor, and maybe a even a tear or two. We’ve also published Lost In Space Adventures, five short stories which re-think and re-imagine a number of actual episodes which had some very good ideas in them, but didn’t make it to air time as everything they might have been. Essentially, they have been rewritten as serious science fiction for grown-ups. Well, mostly serious. Dr. Smith remains the thorough scoundrel he originally was, but he does lend some light touches still!
Also, under The Written Word, there is a collection of our non-LIS “fanfics” (I really dislike that term!) An eclectic assortment of our other writings, there just might be something there that tickles your fancy! Please enjoy….

Look under “Gallery of Beautiful Models” for some of our latest work in beautifully built models — the Chariot, Pod, Robot, and more! And in the drawer labeled “Steampunk Jupiter 2” is a customized build of the Polar Lights brand Jupiter 2 model kit, done in the steampunk style: if you’re not familiar with that, imagine the Jupiter 2 constructed based on the technology and science of the Victorian era! Lots of steam piping and gears and such are what usually mark out steampunk. This project is presented as if it were a scientific journal of the era, recounting the recent flight of the “Aether Ship” Jupiter 2 to Mars and back. Basically it’s a lot of photos and some backstory. Please enjoy!
Also see our video gallery!!
We have to be very careful posting video, as Lost In Space is still copyrighted material, but we have a growing gallery of short clips featuring some of Penny’s best scenes, and other related material. Check out our first clips now! Mark Goddard fans, be sure and visit the Golden Wheel Saloon, where we’re showing complete episodes of Johnny Ringo, co-starring Mark in his first TV series as deputy “Cully” to Sheriff Johnny Ringo in old Arizona Territory. A classic Western from the Golden Age of the American Western! The first five episodes of Johnny Ringo are now playing in the Golden Wheel Saloon, and an updated torrent link where the entire series can be downloaded.

Well, in the picture, I guess she really does need to be let down. But that’s not what I meant. I mean, I’m sure you knew that, I know you’re pretty bright. But just in case — Yes, Penny dear, I’ll shut up now.
