The episodes are not listed per air date. Should we list them by production number instead? Ottens 13:03, 1 Aug 2004 (CEST)

I support ordering by production number Airdate is accepted in some chronologies, but I feel it betrays the creator intentions, since there are some things that are continuous from week to week (crew extras, uniform details/changes) and mixing them up into NBC's rather judicious and arbitrary reordering just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. But then, I've been working on unnamed crew extras and uniform details lately, so I guess I'm the only one who is noticing these things.... --Captain Mike K. Bartel 15:19, 1 Aug 2004 (CEST)
Since the NBC isn't the only station airing these episodes, and they don't have any kind of monopoly over it, I dont's see wat their airing dat has to do with StarTrek in the first place. I support ordering by production number. -- Redge 16:04, 1 Aug 2004 (CEST)
I agree - order by production number. --Defiant | Talk 06:36, 1 Apr 2005 (EST)
Well, I see your point, but the problem is that the DVD and Blu-Ray box sets do have the episodes in order by original airdate. This list would be very confusing to someone using those as a reference. I would however like to go through and watch the episodes in production order just to see what it's like…I imagine that would offer some unique perspective on the series that I have never noticed before.
And furthermore, none of the episode listings for any of the other four (five counting TAS) series list them in production order, despite several discrepancies between when an episode was actually made and when it finally aired. For example, VOY: "The 37's" was originally filmed during VOY Season 1, but UPN (regrettably) decided to air it as the season premiere of VOY Season 2.--Antodav 04:37, December 15, 2010 (UTC)
Three things to note here:
1) The original discussion here ended in 2005 when the DVD sets as they exist now did not exist.
2) "The 37's" still aired in its original order. Just as the start of S2 rather than the end of S1.
3) The episode listing tables are sortable. By airdate, production number, etc.
Hope that helps. -- sulfur 11:05, December 15, 2010 (UTC)

New formatEdit

I'm adding episode browser templates to replace the ep list here; i'm adding a PNA message because i think there is a lot more content possible in the "season" pages than just a duplication of the main article's list. -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk 23:49, 26 Mar 2005 (EST)

What could be added to the information about DVDs? Which disc episodes are on? Details of special features? --Defiant | Talk 06:36, 1 Apr 2005 (EST)
That's what I did on the DS9 season pages. I did the same on the Enterprise season 1 page but it was reverted. --Rebelstrike2005 17:11, 1 Apr 2005 (EST)
Why was it reverted? --Defiant | Talk 17:17, 1 Apr 2005 (EST)
I'm not sure. What do you think of the DVD info on the DS9 season pages?Rebelstrike2005 17:18, 1 Apr 2005 (EST)
I think the DVD info for ENT Season 1 may have been deleted because of possible "spoilers", as the set hasn't been released yet. I think your info on DS9 DVDs has quite extensive information on the special features. An idea - why don't we have a DVD section, like the books department we have already? We could cover subjects like Special Features and list Seasons, arranged in the order they are in on the DVDs? --Defiant | Talk 17:28, 1 Apr 2005 (EST)
Good idea. There is a DVD discussion on Ten-Forward. Rebelstrike2005 17:37, 1 Apr 2005 (EST)

Legal questionsEdit

Any legal researchers have a reference to the Star Trek copyright cases? Did Paramount just threaten people, or is there an actual court case? Paramount couldn't actually "copyright" the episodes in 1978, since they'd been published in 1967; any notices claiming 1978 copyright dates are simply fraud plain and simple. They might have *registered* the copyright in 1978, perhaps; it would be worthwhile to get some more specific information on this. 04:20, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

in what order should i watch this? Edit

i have seen many episode lists and about 2 or 3 different orders at least. what order am i meant to watch it? i've been watching this order:

The order you've been using is the original airdate order. The order used in this list is the production order, which is generally considered as reflecting the order the producers intended them to be viewed. Most episodes are self-contained, the most obvious discrepancy is the way the second pilot episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before" was dropped in after two episodes made after it, despite featuring different uniforms and crewmembers. – Skteosk 17:44, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
