Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Spotting a parachute carrying a passenger descending upon the island, Gilligan (Bob Denver) is certain that a rescue party has come for the Castaways. Alas, our hero is wrong again: The "parachutist" turns out to be an experimental Air Force robot. Even so, the Castaways are certain that they can program the robot to return to Hawaii with information leading to their rescue--and this well might have happened had it not been for the bungling of...aw, YOU know who! (PS: The voice of the robot is supplied by Charles Maxwell, usually heard as the ubiquitious "radio voice" in other Gilligan's Island episodes).
