Spoilers for the ending of Lost in Space season 1 (2018):

In the season finale, we see the land rover park in the spaceship and the camera reveals some sort of glowing object attached to the bottom.

I kind of felt like this came out of nowhere but, according to Wikipedia

the robot had hid the alien ship's engine under the land rover.

Do we see this happen? Have we ever even seen this engine before it shows up beneath the land rover?

    In a prior scene, we see the robot access the engine. Hiding it on the rover was clearly done offscreen between scenes – Remy Lebeau Apr 20 '18 at 22:20

    The 'land rover' is called a chariot. – David Conrad May 18 '18 at 9:24

You can see the Alien Engine/Power source here, around 35 minutes into Episode 9: Resurrection. It appears to have been dismounted and slung underneath the chariot between scenes.

Alien Engine

The flashbacks following Dr Smith on the Resolute just before this state, but don't explicitly show, that a similar engine was installed there too. We just see Smith highlighted in the blue glow while looking through the restricted door following a conversation between two of the ship's crew. In the subtitles they are helpfully labelled man1 and man2. Though one of them appears to be Maureen's boss from flashbacks earlier in the episode.

"There was always a risk they'd come back for it."
"What do we do? You saw what that machine is doing--"
"Without that engine out here, we're all dead anyway. So you protect it at all costs"

  • How does this answer the question? – O. R. Mapper May 4 at 22:09
  • @O.R.Mapper the video shows where the engine comes from. The crashed alien spaceship. The rest is just context for what it is. – Jontia May 5 at 6:07
  • Granted, you answer the "Have we ever even seen this engine before it shows up beneath the land rover?" part of the question, but not the other part that asks how it got attached underneath the chariot (and whether we see this happen). – O. R. Mapper May 5 at 8:15
