Picard’s Christmas fantasy in “Star Trek Generations” – airing on the Space Channel
In Canada they’re playing a Star Trek Movie marathon, starting tonight, on the space channel. They plaed Trekkied 2 as well today a few times.
There having a ST movie marathon in Canada? We had one in the U.S. about six years ago, which was called the UPN network, but it only aired ST: II through ST:V. Luckly Canada gets to air all ten films.
“… [F]or Canadians, there is a Star Trek movie marathon with all 10 Trek movies starting Christmas eve and running through Friday ….”
Hmmm… sign of a civilized country. I’ve got nation-envy right now. ;-)
Any news on what its like over in Ireland/England???
Couldnt be bothered checking the RTE guide….
TMP and Christmas.
You telling me Sci-Fi isn’t playing “The Inner Light”? Or “Best Of Both Worlds”? Or “Yesterday’s Enterprise”?
Who the heck’s programming this marathon? Chimps?
Sci-Fi could have at least aired Generations with Picard spending his imaginary Christmas with his imaginary family in the Nexus.
9 – “… spending his imaginary Christmas with his imaginary family in the Nexus.”
Hey, that’s what I’M doin’! :-D
Hey the Scifi channel is not what it used to be. But at least there still showing Trek. I bet you they will show a lot more trek as we get close to the New movie.
I’d rather watch the movie marathon
I wonder why there arent many more little Canadians born in the summer, since they’re all snowed in by now….
“”You telling me Sci-Fi isn’t playing “The Inner Light”? Or “Best Of Both Worlds”? Or “Yesterday’s Enterprise”?””
They’ve ALWAYS shown those in previous marathons – it’s nice that they’re actually changing things up for this one. There are SO MANY episodes, and I hate that feeling of ‘man, Best of Both Worlds AGAIN????’
Thanks, SciFi – you’ve made my holiday-less day off a winner!
I don’t get your comment.
14—its called snowed-in baby boom… tons of people, snowed-in, are bored so they have sex and get preggers…then the kids are born later on…though to correct #12’s comment thered be a huge upsurge in births around the anniversary of the beginning of trek (september 8th), not summer, although technically early september still is summer so idk…lol
MERRY NEXUS CHRISTMAS!
Nothing in the Uk. Virgin 1 show their regular mix of all 4 of the modern series though
Having my own Trek-A-Thon, it started in May. Now up to TNG Season Three.
Sad they aren’t playing ‘All Good Things’…
Noticed this on my tv this morning. Not exactly a list of favorites, although there are some pretty good ones on there.
A Matter of Perspective is crap.
Yeah a movie marathon would be real cool. I would like to see all of them back to back but then again who does not have all the DVD’s?
More stupidity from the SciFi Channel. .
Who made the episode choices? Obviously the staff at this channel are complete idiots.
Excellent choice of classic TNG episodes. My personal choice would have been not much different.
‘Sarek’ is definitely a classic.
Good choice of eps for the TNG marathon. I am pleased to see some of the lesser-known episodes in there, rather than all the heavy-hitters. Would’ve ben better if we had Canada’s present though of all 10 movies.
I wonder how many people from this site would actually watch these marathon shows. I imagine most of the posters here either own them
or have seen them a numerous times & will watch Trek when it suits them not the Sci-Fi stations.
Perhaps these screenings will hook some channel-surfing newbies and continue to build momentum for the next movie.
I got to watch quite a bit of the SciFi Trekathon, and enjoyed it very much! It wasn’t a “best of” marathon, just a marathon, and it was nice to see a few eps that I haven’t seen in a while! Very cool!
wish i had “Space”
I’m not a TV DVD purchaser, so I appreciate the occasional marathon. I haven’t seen some of these for years.
SciFi has been utter crap for years. Battlestar Galactica is the exception, as is the occasional Trek.
Now, I’m probably wrong, but it looked like the movie marathon on Space featured restored versions of the films, cause from what I saw (sorry, didn’t have the time to watch it all, but I would switch over to it once and while for extended viewings), and they looked fairly good, even though I don’t get the channel in HD, it just looked like some work had been done to clean them up. All of them were played in the OAR letterboxed forms, and it seems VI was the long lost (or so I thought) theatrical version, simply omitting a few scenes here and there.
