Now, I have some information that I think will benefit the future of the "Lost in Space" page, but because I don't want the whole "Kung Pao Turkey" incident to happen again, I will share it here and see if it's suitable to actually put it on the page.
On this YouTube video, I think that Mike Barker might, repeat might, be writing this and that Jeff Fischer will go with Roger to his home planet.
Ok, with a little sleep I'm a little more rational. While I think that it is likely, I don't want to jump the gun and say for a fact that this is that episode at least until we get an official plot tied to this episode. Until a couple of years ago, I was pretty strict that unless someone said "THIS is what happens in THIS episode" that it wouldn't go in. I relented on a few of the apparently obvious ones a couple of years ago and it has come back to bite me in the ass at least once this year so I think we need to hold off on this until verified. For all I know it could be "Max Jets" they are talking about. The link could be useful as a note AFTER the episode airs though. (After thinking about it you may be right about Tank Bates, but again, there is room for doubt.) --Buckimion (talk) 08:19, December 22, 2012 (UTC)
Why isn't the Shapeshifter listed in the characters featured in this episode? I added it, but it was reverted by Bukimon. She had a more important role than Toby or Phil, after all. My apologies for not having an account here, just wondering. 188.8.131.52 04:04, May 8, 2013 (UTC)
Please read the American Dad! Wiki:Editing Policy. Unnamed characters do not get pages unless they become repeat characters like Clown with Glasses. (Who was actually given that as an "official" name.) --Buckimion (talk) 11:16, May 8, 2013 (UTC)
- Then why does the summoner get in? He was nameless too. Please be consistant. 184.108.40.206 15:58, May 8, 2013 (UTC)
Maybe it is lost on you, but there is an intonation which gives it weight, it is not the summoner, but The Summoner. The "shape-shifter" is merely a description. Something along the lines of being a "god" and "God". --Buckimion (talk) 16:10, May 8, 2013 (UTC)
- No more than the shapeshifter. I was under the impression that "summoner" was just the guy's job. It's a description of him. It just feels weird to ignore major characters because they aren't officially named. I also just read the Editing Policy, which says absolutely nothing about nameless characters. But since you clearly run this place and your opinion is the only one that holds weight around here, so I'll leave you to your monopoly. 220.127.116.11 16:32, May 8, 2013 (UTC)
I was trying to open a bit of a discussion on this matter, as it is a character vital to the plot. Obviously, you're not interested in other people's opinions on things like this. I do feel a lot of things in this episode can be taken differently depending on the viewer. I feel it is open for interpretation. The scene in particular that made me feel like the Shapeshifter is her legitimate name is when Zing referred to her as that near the end of the episode. He's called everyone else by their actual name, to my understanding. Sure, I may be beating a dead horse by this point, as you've politely pointed out with an emoticon, but I feel I have a valid point. I also feel you shouldn't instruct me to read rules when I'm breaking unwritten ones. I apologize for my attitude here, including things I've written in this paragraph, but I do feel I have a point here. I'm trying to understand the whole "important plot characters can't have their own page if they don't have an official name" rule, and I'm just not understanding the logic behind it. And please respond with more than a "no, you're wrong and I'm right". For what I assumed was supposed to be an encyclopedia for the TV show, it seems as though we'd be deliberately ignoring content. At least we can agree that the Magestic is a character, right? :) 18.104.22.168 17:10, May 8, 2013 (UTC)
So is jeff killed off for good?
Read the Episode Guide for the full story. TBS has changed the season count at least once a year every year under their control. We will only follow their original 2014 count until further notice. Season counts on other providers are NOT accepted here. --Buckimion (talk) 12:23, July 22, 2015 (UTC)
