Space (or SPACE) is a Canadian broadcasting channel. It is owned and operated by Bell Media. Its primary programming includes science fiction, fantasy, and horror related shows, whether scripted series or documentaries. Space currently airs Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: Voyager and at one time showed all of the series.

The station debuted in October 1997 with the film Forbidden Planet. Various Star Trek shows have been re-run on the channel, and each year around Christmas, they air one or more of the Star Trek films.

The station was notable for being the only in the world to have all 5 Star Trek series on their regular, Monday-Friday schedule for an extended period of time. However, Star Trek: Enterprise was dropped in 2007, TOS (in favor of TOS:Remastered) in November 2009 and also Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (without warning and with no reason given) in September 2011. In early July 2012, Star Trek: The Next Generation was taken off leaving The Original Series and Voyager left. However, in an email to Space, it was revealed that The Next Generation has only been removed for the summer lineup, and may return after the summer season. The Next Generation re-aired on September 4, 2012 after 2 months of being off the air.
