The start of the article makes it appear that the show endured changes to help it compete with Star Trek which was far as I know isn't true in the sense that unlike Star Trek, Lost in Space was realtively pupular and had decent ratings.

I think the film should be split into its own article.

Agreed.

Also, I'm not sure which trope it would fall under (if any at all)... but the article doesn't mention the fact that several actors from the TV series actually did have a bit part in the movie! (Except for Dick Tufeld; it DOES mention that he reprised his role as the robot.)

Specifically, Mark Goddard (Don West) plays the part of the general who gives Matt Le Blanc (Don West) the order to join the crew of the Jupiter II; June Lockhart (Maureen Robinson) appears in the movie as the school principal; and both Angela Cartwright (Penny Robinson) and Marta Kristen (Judy Robinson) are reporters at the press conference before the launch of the Jupiter II!

Basically, they got as many of the actors from the TV series as possible (Guy Williams and Jonathan Harris had both passed away, and Bill Mumy had other obligations) and gave them bit parts in the movie (which I personally thought was a nice touch).

Since I don't know whether or not this would fall under one of the tropes, I'm going to add this information to the "Ensemble" section of the main article for now.
