CBS Action- UK

8 posts in this topic

CBS Action in the UK is currently showing DS9 Season 1. When you hit the information button on your Sky remote it comes up for EVERY episode "Star Trek spin-off taking place on a space station orbiting the planet Bajor" before specifically describing the episode a wee bit. Sigh. Can you spot the mistake?

 

I would suggest "Third Star Trek series set on a Cardassian Space Station located beside a wormhole to a distant quadrant" (or something)

 

It's just, when they are broadcasting a tv programme to millions of viewers and want to put the same 14 word description on every episode you would think that they could at least get their facts right!

 

TNG - "Star Trek spin-off set on the Enterprise C ... "

 

VOY - "Star Trek spin-off set in the Gamma Quadrant"

 

ENT - "Star Trek series set after the Origina Series"

 

Duh :P :dude:

Really don't think it's worth getting upset over. It's a minor screw up at best (DS9 does start the series in orbit of Bajor) and they actually manage to get Bajor right.

Minor screw up? Your job is to write a 14 word description for a tv programme which is going to be broadcast to the nation with every episode and you get the facts wrong? Yeah, sure, minor indeed.

 

I would call a minor screw up putting too much salt on my dinner.

 

Depends who you are i suppose. :P

Now Sky 2 are reshowing DS9. Just watching Trials and Tribble-ations... CBS Action are showing Season One of TNG and they have hired a local Trekkie to introduce each episode (as they did with TOS Remastered recently) which is very admirable...
