UK DS9 Trekkers -help! Syfy runs!

Ok, this is really for my dear aging mother who doesn't have the DVDs. The UK versuon of SyFy channel has been running DS9 lately and she has been catching up with it (not having seen it since I was a young man living at the family home with the VHS's.). She's just bee watch the season 3 finale and it seems they are resetting things and going back to Emissary for the next episode. Does anyone here know what reason they might have to not show season four onwards? Or should I be lending her my DVDs?

Re: UK DS9 Trekkers -help! Syfy runs!

I suspect it's a rights issue. They maynot have the rights to air S4-7 at the moment. But bear in mind when SyFy (UK) first showed TNG they only showed S1-2, then the re-run after that went S1-4.

Not the UK version of Netflix, unfortunately.

They will get to the remaining seasons eventually; staggered throughout various runs (like they did/are doing with TNG)

It seems the majority of the episodes for all series are free to watch on StarTrek.com now. I know they've had TOS, TAS, and ENT for a long time, but I checked today and they also had full episodes of TNG, DS9, and VOY, which must be fairly recent additions

I would just lend her your DVDs. It would likely be more quick than waiting on Syfy UK getting the broadcasting rights.

None of them are available in the UK.

Re: UK DS9 Trekkers -help! Syfy runs!

I was going to suggest that you could contact the network as I've done that before here asking about when a new season of a show would be aired, though with a free-to-air network...and in Australia. Got a pretty prompt reply, though the answer was unsurprisingly vague.

Anyway, went to the website to see if I could hunt down contact info and just had a look at their online schedule and it looks like they are continuing forward with season four starting in about 2 weeks: Syfy.co.uk schedule

^ This.

Why would you not lend the woman who lent you her body for eighteen months a couple of bits of plastic?!

I was thinking exactly the same thing!

Lend your mother your DVDs!! God, I'd love for either of my parents to start showing an interest in Trek! (not the JarJar-verse though).

^I'd love it if my parents showed an interest in any of it. And I love the Abramsverse. It got my brother and sister-in-law to take a step into my world.

I know BBC America routinely shows TNG still. I believe Trek is still being shown quite routinely over in the UK and the rest of Europe.

Re: UK DS9 Trekkers -help! Syfy runs!

Unfortunately the SyFy run is probably the worst screening the series has ever had in the UK. It's been hacked to bits to remove even the slightest of trace of violence. As seen here;

God knows what Way of the Warrior'll be like when they get to it in a couple of weeks time. I fully expect the climax to be replaced by a piece of paper with the words "Then captain cisko spoke nicely to the klingons and they all had cake and ice creem and then went home and noone got stabbied". scrawled on it.
