    Did a search here and saw no mention of this.

    Was looking through my channel guide to see when Next Gen would be back on, and stumbled onto Voyager joining the BBC America schedule - Jan 1 at 5am EST. Looks like they're kicking it off with a marathon.

    If it was regular BBC they would all have to be dubbed in different accents to reflect the different people in the UK. And Ireland of course but who knows.

    Good news. It's always fun to catch a stray TNG ep from time to time and now VOY.

    I wonder if they will ever carry DS9 or Enterprise.

    Happy New Year! Turns on BBCA and discovers VOY on.

    A show with no British actors!

    Skipping DS9...

    A show with Brit and Irish actors and characters! Yea! :rommie:

    I didn't think things had to be dubbed for different accents. They are still speaking English.

    Perhaps these re-runs will spark a renewed interest in 24th century trek.

    DS9 is on a lot in the UK, Voyager not so much.

    Kind of ironic. :lol:
    I'd imagine it has to do with the stand alone nature of the shows. They often show various episodes in a random haphazard manner.

    I've never watched through the entire DS9 series yet. Syndication made viewing the show difficult in my area as it was preempted for basketball on Saturdays often. I think I've watched all of the episodes at some point but not in order. It was a pretty good show I will say. Although Brooks overacting at times puts the Shat to shame. ;)

    I caught the tail end of the episode The Chute on BBC recently. It appears they cut part of the scene at the end where Tom and Harry are talking after they've left sickbay. Like Harry still feeling so guilty and Tom says he only recalls Harry protecting him. All I saw was them leaving sickbay and then turning the corner talking about what they will get to eat. That seems like a rather important bit to cut out.

    But it could be in English English like in Austin Powers.

    Is it me or Star Trek: Voyager is offering itself a second youth and/or breath though a new releasing on DVD box and an airing on Netflix*, BBC America, etc.... It's GREAT!!! :techman:

    * can you imagine that, just for France, this show was never aired on any of our major broadcasting ... before that Netflix decides to propose the program in its list with others sereis from ST franchise?! (I managed to watch the show first, thanks to a friend living in Qu├ębec who had recorded them and 2) thanks to DVD sets purchased on Amazon.
