In "The Secret From Space", an episode of 'The Sarah Jane Adventures', the "Ancient Lights" had come to Earth and possessed a phony psychic. They gave him power over the astrological signs in hopes of taking over Earth Prime-Time. (Apparently, they had come to the TV Universe from an alternate universe which was destroyed in the Big Bang.) When their plan failed, the Ancient Lights departed Toobworld, taking the psychic with them.
It took a few more centuries, but those same Ancient Lights returned to bedevil the people of Toobworld, but this time in the final frontier of space. Claiming that they came from the dead planet of Zetar (which could have been their home during the interim since their last appearance), the "Lights Of Zetar" tried to possess Lt. Mira Romaine on board the starship Enterprise. But the chief of engineering, Montgomery Scott put Mira into the pressurization chamber which killed off the non-corporeal beings, who had become too accustomed to the vacuum of space. (That last encounter with humans occurred in 'Star Trek'.)

Of course, this is just speculation on my part and I don't have to prove it. All of our televersions in Toobworld will be long dead before that event takes place......
