Worlds collided when Star Trek film star Chris Pine gabe audiences his best "Shacting" over the weekend. Pine paid homage to William Shatner's iconic performance as James T. Kirk on Saturday Night Live in a "lost episode of Star Trek" skit. Pine portrays Captain Kirk in the recent Trek films — Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek Beyond. Saturday, he left the silver screen for the small screen by hosting SNL. Part of his episode was a fake "lost episode" of The Original Series that "aired" on TV Land. 

Keenan Thompson introduces the lost episode as Neil deGrasse Tyson. Spock's half-brother "Spocko" is enlisted to help the bridge crew. Despite being related to Spock, Spocko lacks the tact and whit of Spock. Check out the skit below! 

While we can't promise you that we'll be airing this particular "episode" of Star Trek: The Orinial Series, we can promise you each real episode of the groundbreaking original, every weeknight and Sunday night at 8PM | 7C.
