Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Though not a science fiction series per se, the British game show Space Cadets was predicated upon the sci-fi savvy of its contestants. On each episode, host Greg Proops and team captains Charles Craig (of Red Dwarf fame) and Bill Bailey donned the costumes of a popular TV outer-space program, then guided their celebrity guests through a dizzying question-and-answer session, with the prize money going to charity. Among the famous participants were Star Trek's William Shatner, Doctor Who's Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred, Blakes 7's Paul Darrow, Babylon 5's Walter Koenig and Claudia Christian, and Deep Space 9's Max Grodenchik. The ten half-hour episodes of Space Cadets were aired by Britain's Channel 4 in 1997.
