Yes. In the pilot episode, the robot was programmed to destroy the life support system and the automated navigation system of the spacecraft. This way, from the telemetry they'd receive on earth, it would look like the ship had suffered a massive systems failure that killed the passengers in suspended animation and shot the ship randomly off course at maximum speed. Since the telemetry would show everyone aboard as dead, and since they could never build/launch a ship in time that would catch up with the Jupiter II traveling at maximum speed, they'd simply write the ship off as a loss and never investigate further. However, Dr. Smith got trapped aboard. He tried to stop the robot from destroying things on his own, and when he failed, began to wake the sleeping crew for help. They managed to stop the robot from destroying life support, but not navigation. Hence, they became "Lost in Space". During the robot's rampage, it droned: "Destroy... destroy... destroy". It was both frighting and comical! Dr. Smith was actually pretty sinister in that first epiosde. They quickly morphed him into the cowardly, selfish, sniveling crybaby.
