The BBC has bought an American space-adventure series to replace "Dr. Who," the children's serial. Called "Star Trek," it will be shown every Saturday evening on BBC-1 from July 12 until the end of the year.

The "Star Trek" adventures take place in the year 2069 aboard a space-ship called Enterprise, which carries a crew of 450 and is the pride of earth's space-ship fleet.

The second officer is a Mr. Spock, was described as "half-human, half-Vulcanian.". He has pointed ears and has become one of the cult characters on TV in the United States, where the series attracts a big audience.

Leonard Nimoy, who plays the part, was recently guest of honor at a dinner of the National Space Club to which many scientists and spaceflight technicians belong.

The BBC say that Dr. Who return early next year.
