Astra Lost in Space Episode Guide


Episode 1: Planet Camp

Review: Astra Lost In Space Episode 01 – Best In Show

In Astra Lost in Space episode 01, “Planet Camp,” Aries Spring is super excited to go on a field trip, which means she gets to go to another planet with several other students. A thief tries to steal her purse, but quick thinking by Kanata Hoshijima almost saves the day — until the automated police think he committed assault instead of stopping a robbery! Fortunately, by launch time, all is sorted, and they depart. The ship drops them off on the planet, and things are going well when a large ball of energy approaches them. Thinking it’s just part of the experience, Luca Esposito approaches it — only to be sucked in and disappear. Kanata tells everyone to engage their helmets and run, but the thing is too fast. The globe absorbs all of them, one by one. The next thing Kanata knows, he’s spinning in space. There’s a planet nearby. His suit has limited resources. Can he find shelter in orbit? Can he find his classmates? And just what the heck was the globe of energy?

In Astra Lost in Space episode 02, “Wilderness,” Kanata HoshijimaAries Spring, and the rest of the crew set down on the planet Vilavurs to restock their food and water supplies. At first, all seems well — even the “dragons” didn’t seem interested in eating humans. But then Quitterie Raffaeli got into an argument over Kanata’s fitness for command, and one things led to another until Funicia Raffaeli ended up in harms way — as a potential snack for one of the “dragons.” Can Kanata and the crew save her?

Episode 3: Meteor

Review: Astra Lost In Space Episode 03 – Best In Show

In Astra Lost in Space episode 03, “Meteor,” Kanata Hoshijima racks his brain trying to figure out who might be the traitor. Despite spending a lot of energy on the subject, he comes up blank. Their arrival at planet Shummoor interrupts his efforts. A meteor slicing through the ship’s hull puts the subject, at least temporarily, out of everyone’s minds. The strike damaged their gravity generator, and they can’t land without it. Unfortunately, the planet’s gravity has other plans for them. Can Kanata inspire enough crew unity to effect repairs before their ship crashes into the planet? And even if they can, what can he do about the traitor onboard?

Episode 4: Star of Hope

Review: Astra Lost In Space Episode 04 – Best In Show

In Astra Lost in Space episode 04, “Star of Hope“, Kanata Hoshijima makes a command decision. If they can’t work together as a team, they’ll die individually, so he halts the search for the traitor. They land on planet Shummoor and at first, things seem to be going well. Sure, the animal carcasses they discover are concerning, especially given that there’s no overt cause of death. But they start finding water and some vegetable food, and it looks like they’ll be able to resupply without incident. But when some of the flowers starting going bad — very, very bad! — within minutes of being picked, that’s only the first bad sign. Charce Lecroix is the first to notice the second bad sign. Will he live long enough to warn the others? Or will Shummoor be the last planet they land on?

Episode 5: Paradise

Review: Astra Lost In Space Episode 05 – Best In Show

In Astra Lost in Space episode 05, “Paradise,” everyone in the crew thanked Yun-hua Lu for helping them survive until Kanata Hoshijima had gotten back with the antidote. She was almost overwhelmed, and it didn’t help that Quitterie Raffaeli called her “mega cute!” But she celebrated her newfound confidence by asking Luca Esposito to give her a haircut, which went over really well. They landed on a new planet to re-supply, and while they’re there, their parents back home met to discuss — calling off the search? Why was Emma Spring, mother of Aries Spring, the only one advocating to continue the search? Why was Luca’s father, a senator, not at the meeting? And why did Ulgar Zweig react so strongly when he learned that Luca’s father is a senator?

Review: Astra Lost In Space Episode 06 – Best In Show

In Astra Lost in Space episode 06, “Secret,” Ulgar Zweig held a pistol to Luca Esposito’s forehead, obviously leading the crew to conclude he was the traitor. He told them that no, he wasn’t their enemy, but he was still going to kill Luca. He then told the story of how Luca’s father the senator was behind his brother’s “accidental” death. Can Aries Spring’s good will change Ulgar’s mind? Can Kanata Hoshijima do anything to defuse the situation? And why does Luca seem angry instead of terrified?

Episode 7: Past

Review: Astra Lost In Space Episode 07 – Best In Show

In Astra Lost in Space episode 07, “Past,” Aries Spring’s realization that she didn’t remember Charce Lecroix from her biology class threw the crew into confusion, because he said he had been in her class. His explanation changed how they all thought of him — but was he the traitor? They land on a new planet. As expected, they find an ecosystem that they didn’t understand. Their lack of understanding nearly proved fatal when one of the skyscraper-sized “plants” tried to grab the ship. Zack Walker’s best piloting wasn’t enough to prevent a devastating crash. Is the ship really beyond repair? If it is, how will they adjust to living on such an inhospitable world? Can it really become their new home?

Episode 10: Culprit

Review: Astra Lost In Space Episode 10 – Best In Show

In Astra Lost in Space episode 10,  “Culprit,” the crew use their knowledge of history to compare notes with Polina Livinskaya, since they now know their home planet, Astra, is not the home planet Polina was expecting (Earth). The histories are practically identical up to the Cuban Missile Crisis, which unfolded very differently according to Astra’s natives. Later, they land on the last planet before Astra. As they begin gathering food, the glowing orb attacks Kanata Hoshijima, and he only escapes by encountering Aries Spring. Afraid that the traitor will now make a move, since there’re no more planets let, Kanata comes up with a plan. Who does he suspect? Who can he trust to help him apprehend the culprit?
