II - The mobile Land-Rover and
storehouse of scientific knowledge on the
live-action sci-fi series ARK II/CBS/1976-79.
Roaming the now barren landscape of Earth (A.D.
2476), damaged from centuries of pollution and
global holocaust, the Ark II sought out the
feudal tribes of the future attempting to
replant the technological seeds of a new
civilization. Its crew included Jonah, (Terry
Lester), the expedition leader; Ruth (Jean Marie
Hon), Samuel (Jose Flores) and Adam, a
chimpanzee companion. Their stated mission: "To
bring the hope of the new future to mankind."
The Ark II also housed a smaller four-wheeled
vehicle called "The Roamer" and a jet pack
which Jonah used for aerial surveillance.
