Space Academy is a sci-fi adventure series that aired on CBS.

Established in 3732, the Space Academy (located on an asteroid, often shown on camera) brought together the best of young minds, along with those having special skills and abilities, to learn about and experience the unknowns of space as Earth people continued to explore it in the distant future. (It is generally assumed that the show takes place in 3732 A.D. However, series star Jonathan Harris's opening narration says that the academy was founded in "the star year 3732", and the "star year" calendar may not correspond to the Gregorian calendar. Further, the stories could be taking place decades or centuries after the academy's founding; based on this limited information, the actual time frame of the series is impossible to determine).
