Beginning Monday, November 13, TV Land will feature "Space Week" -- an on- air programming event featuring special space-themed episodes of TV Land shows as well as guest appearances by members of the Star Trek cast (before they were Trekkies). The week will feature William Shatner on Gunsmoke, Leonard Nimoy on Bonanza and space-themed episodes of I Love Lucy and Benson, among others.

In the final culmination event, TVLand.com will host a live video chat on November 19 at 9pm ET reuniting cast members George Takei, Walter Koenig and Nichelle Nichols.

This futuristic series is set in the 23rd century and follows the adventures of the U.S.S. Enterprise. Their mission is to travel across the galaxy to explore new worlds and seek new life forms and civilizations. Commanded by James T. Kirk (William Shatner), accompanied by his first officer and best friend Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy), a half-human/ half-Vulcan with pointed ears. The Enterprise encountered confrontations with such now-famous aliens the Klingons and the Romulans, as well as other strange forms of life. Other characters in the series include Dr. Leonard McCoy (DeForest Kelley), a surgeon and diagnostician; Sulu (George Takei), the chief navigator; Uhura (Nichelle Nichols), the communications officer; Scotty (James Doohan), the chief engineer and Nurse Christine Chapel (Majel Barrett).
