If you submitted a change, and they're not included, they're still on a printout. ;)] DISCLAIMER: "Star Trek", "Enterprise", and all other related items are copyright and trademarks of Paramount Communications. Any infringement of these lists on Paramount's legitimate copyright and trademarks are purely unintentional, and will be corrected upon proper notification. These lists are for the enjoyment of the reader only, and may not be sold. Some items in these lists are taken from Mike Brown's "ST:TNG Program Guide", and no copyright infringement is intended. This list is only intended to supplement Mr. Brown's guide, not replace it. You are highly recommended to purchase Mr. Brown's guide. This is the Star Trek TNG Lists of Lists. It contains a listing of all the episodes for "Star Trek: The Next Generation" TV series, plus some added notes. (Due to length considerations, there is a separate TOS/TAS, Movies, and DS9 List of Lists) This list comes out around the 1st and 16th of every month, except July and August, when it will come out on the 1st only. However, a posting may not come out due to events beyond my control. If you are wondering why I compile these lists, it is strictly out of the enjoyment of "Star Trek", and enjoy a wealth of information from other people who post on the electronic networks. After being irritated by the ever constant requests for episode lists on Usenet, I decided that, in the middle of 1990, to post a list of episodes on a regular basis. It soon grew from that, and, with the contributions of other people, these lists grew to what you see today. (And still growing). The only payment I ask is thanks and contributions, I am not making a dime off these compilations.

Sep 19 92 Sep 21-Sep 27 227 - *>Season Six Premere<* [No official description is available] Syndication Notes ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Star Trek: The Next Generation" is a syndicated program that is sold to each individual station. It is not part of the FOX network, although many stations that have purchased TNG are also part of FOX. The first run episodes are uplinked to the local stations on the Saturday and Sunday of the Satellite Date. This uplinking is done through Keystone Communications (formerly WOLD Communications), through Telstar 301. The program is uplinked on saturdays through Transponder 9 (5V) at 1800 ET/1500 PT, and on sundays through Transponder 9 (5V) at 1400 ET/1100 PT. The carriers are wide-band, and are: 6.2-left, 6.8-right, and 5.8-mono. No scrambling is employed in the uplink. The station then airs the episode for the first time anytime during Paramount's official week of (Monday through Sunday). It is currently against Paramount contract to cut short the closing credits and the Paramount logo in first-run episodes. If your station is cutting the credits, then write to both the offending station and: Paramount Pictures Corporation TV Syndication and Promotion 5555 Melrose Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90038 Currently, the episodes from seasons one through four (up to "In Theory", "Redemption I" is not included) are currently available for daily syndication from Paramount television. With the exception of "Encounter At Farpoint", there is no editing by Paramount television in order to make room for more commercials. Any such editing is being done by your local station. "Encounter At Farpoint" is being distributed as a two-part episode, with several scenes being moved around, some other scenes being shortened or cut, and some of the audio being changed. Currently, it is permissible for Star Trek: The Next Generation to be subject to "Syndication Exclusivity" rules. Thus, if, on your local cable system, both your local station and a out of town station both carry TNG, your local station can have the out of town station's TNG broadcasts be blacked out on cable. Currently, Columbia House Video Library is distributing TNG on VHS video tape. "Encounter At Farpoint" is carried on these series of tapes as a two-hour movie, as seen originally in 1987. However, the box says two-part, since the original run of cassettes was the two-part chopped version. All the other episodes are being distributed in a uncut form. The episode are ordered according to Production Code number, and the cassettes being distributed only go up to the first season, although a second season may be offered. To order, call Columbia House for more information at 1-800-538-7766. "Encounter At Farpoint", "The Naked Now", and "Code Of Honor" are available directly from Paramount Home Video in both video tape and (possibly) laser disc through your local video store. However, there is no word on when or if more episodes will be released. -- Mark Arthur Holtz <:> UUCP: PacBell.COM! -> mholtz!sactoh0 * Keeper - Star Trek List of Lists <:> ucbvax!csusac! / * Compiler - "The Simpsons" Air Dates <:> and "The Simpsons" Episode Guide <:> Internet: mholtz@sactoh0.sac.ca.us
