After 18 years Star Trek was back on the TV and in syndication from the start. This week marks the anniversary of the first airing of the pilot episode of The Next Generation. Do you remember the first time you saw Encounter at Farpoint?
For me I would first see Encounter at Farpoint three years later when the UK broadcaster BBC Two aired the show on 26th September 1990 (wow - 23 years ago this week!).
The pilot of The Next Generation would be the start of 18 years of first run Star Trek on the TV, ending in 2005 with Enterprise's final episode These Are the Voyages....
Happy birthday The Next Generation!
