Re: Your pick for most egregious SYNDICATION CUT for a Trek Series.

"The High Ground" UK History lesson:
The BBC banned it in their 1992, 1997, 2002 screenings of season three.
Sky DID show the episode BUT IT WAS CUT to omit the Ireland line, contrary to what an earlier OP stated.
CIC Video released it in its entirety in 1992.
The Beeb finally showed the episode, uncut, in 2008, a mere sixteen years after season 3 received its first UK broadcast!!
I remember watching that episode on Sky One 6 or 7 years ago and that line was in there. I didn't even know that was any controversy about the episode until I read it on Memory Alpha a few years ago, but I'm Irish and I remember being surprised hearing that in the show. It was a long time ago though so I could well be wrong.
