In six part family scifi drama Return To The Lost Planet (which was a sequel to The Lost Planet) space travellers Dr Lachlan McKinnon (John Stuart) and Jeremy Grant (Peter Kerr) find themselves marooned on the planet Hesikos ruled over by the Hesikosians especially leader Solveg and his daughter Asa.

According to the Radio Times the name of the planet Hesikos was chosen because it had been mentioned as a possible minor planet by Plato that had passed through Earth’s orbit 10,000 years ago.
