NEW YORK, Nov. 2 -- TV Land celebrates the launch of the cult classic series Star Trek as the network and its website prepare for Captain Kirk and The Starship Enterprise to continue to "live long and prosper." The celebration includes the following: free streaming episodes of the series on TVLand.com (first time ever offered free on the Web); an online Star Trek videoclip game with fun factoids about the series; TV Land's "Space Week" featuring special space-themed episodes of the network's shows, episodes of TV Land's programming that feature guest appearances by members of the Star Trek cast and the full-length feature film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan; a marathon showing a total of 30 episodes of the series and a live video chat on TVLand.com on November 19 at 9pm ET reuniting cast members George Takei, Walter Koenig and Nichelle Nichols. Star Trek will air in its regular time slot of 11pm (ET/PT) on TV Land beginning November 20.

TVLand.com kicks-off the festivities as the website is offering free streaming full-length episodes of Star Trek beginning now through November 8. During this time, fans will have access to five of the most popular episodes of the series including: "Where No Man Has Gone Before," "Space Seed," "The City on the Edge of Forever," "Amok Time" and "The Trouble with Tribbles." This is the first time Star Trek episodes are available for free on the Web.

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. Then, on November 17th through 19th, viewers can enjoy marathons of the classic series with a total of 30 episodes in the event as well as the full-length feature film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

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).
