Summary
  • Contact: After an astronomer discovers communication emanating from the star Vega, she leads an international team in deciphering it, and travels through space to contact the senders of the message
  • Lost in space: The year is 2058. With the Earth's resources severely depleted human survival depends upon "The Jupiter Mission." This daring plan will launch an entire family-- the Robinsons-- into the farthest reaches of hyperspace to colonize "Alpha Prime, " the only other habitable planet in the galaxy. But when a stowaway sabotages the mission, the Robinsons find themselves hurtling through uncharted space, facing alien invaders, time- warp wonders and non-stop excitement
  • Sphere: Far below the surface in the mid-Pacific, U.S. officials have isolated what may be the greatest discovery in human history. They've found a huge spacecraft that plunged into the depths--300 years ago. What is the spacecraft's origin? After three centuries, could there still be a living intelligence aboard?
  • Red planet: Looking starward for a solution to the dying of Earth, something no one expected awaits
