I am trying to remember what this show was from when I watched it in my childhood (I grew up in the 90's).

It was a sci-fi television series with a crew of children/young adults that were stranded in space on their ship. They spend the series trying to find a way back home. Just before I stopped watching it for whatever reason, they crash-landed in a jungle - whether it was on earth or not, I do not know...maybe it was part of the suspense.

I remember two characters: -A humanistic female android.

-A guy with ears shaped like spirals. He had excellent hearing. I remember this because in one episode the android was stuck in quicksand and he could hear her muffled cries.

I remember two episodes: -One involved the crew encountering a sort of doppleganger crew. They appeared in a similar ship and offered assistance, or something like that. The real crew left after they sensed the other crew had less than good intentions.

-The other episode was the aforementioned plane crash in the jungle. I believe it was the same episode with the android almost suffocating in quick sand (children's show logic).

It was probably on nickelodeon, but I could be way off there. I keep thinking the title is "lost in space" but clearly that's a different show.

Space Cases

Produced by Nickoleodeon

This show featured exactly the crew you describe.
Radu is the spiral ear guy, he can hear very well and is "super strong".
There is a female android named Thelma.
A girl from Mercury named Rosie.
The main character "Harlan Band" is from Earth.
A girl from Saturn with her alternate personality (Catalina and Suzee)
Then there's Davinport and Goddard, their teachers, (Davinport and Goddard do the best they can, it's Spaaaaaaa-aaaaa-aace Cases).

Bova was the clear star of the show.

They are a crew of cadets who get stranded in space and have to find their way home.

  • Beat me to it - I will add that the episode with the duplicate crew members is called 'Trouble With Doubles' and the one with quicksand is called 'New Places, New Faces'. A fan site with descriptions of episodes can be found at spacecasestv.com
