In Inside Star Trek The Real Story, there is the following passage: "To make matters worse, NBC subsequently advised us they´d placed the show on Canadian television. "One small detail," they added. "Canada will be televising the series one week before the States. We hope this doesn´t give you guys any delivery problems." (In a twist of fate, in order to meet the Canadian schedule, an almost wet-from-the-lab 16 mm print of each week´s episode was air-freighted to NBC in New York, hustled by messenger across town to ABC facilities on West 66th Street, and then fed into Canada via NBC competitor´s transmission lines -- an unsusual practice for those, or any other, times.)." So did the series premiere on September first in Canada? Anyone knows?
