Forum:1994 Viewer's Choice Marathon
In May 1994, as part of the airing of the last episode, there was a five hour marahon with the top five viewer's choice episodes. I watched those (of course) but my memory is failing me as to which ones were selected.
Anyone remember which those episodes were? I have searched with Google for quite a while now and just can not find them... -- Koenig 01:55, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
- "The Inner Light"
- "Yesterday's Enterprise"
- "The Best of Both Worlds"
- "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II"

- I have started an article about this at Star Trek: The Next Generation Viewers Choice Marathon. --Bp 03:39, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
Thanks! As I said, I have searched wide and low for this. If any place is appropriate for this kind of information, it has to be this site. Good plan to add a page for it. -- Koenig 07:49, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
The Wikipedia article on "The Inner Light" refers to it having been #4, not #2. It also suggests this viewer's choice program happened in 1994 on UPN. Since UPN didn't start until 1995, this naturally makes me suspicious of the claim, but it also makes me think that they may be referring to another ST:TNG Viewer's Choice Marathon. Perhaps this article should specifiy where this marathon was broadcast, and maybe even change its title to be a little more precise. Given that Space will be broadcasting the Enterprise Boxing Day Viewer's Choice Marathon in Canada , I can't believe there's only one ST:TNG Viewer's Choice Marathon to have ever existed.

- WP is wrong. The episode appeared second, and it was not a countdown format. The order on this page is correct. The marathon did not air first on UPN, but in syndication with the final episode of TNG in 1994. I may have been replayed later on UPN. The article is named correctly. --Bp 22:06, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
I was going through my original VHS recording of the US broadcast, which started with the "Journey's End" special and was followed by the five episode marathon. Now, this tape contained all of the original commercials, one of which was for DS9: "Crossover" which was advertised as airing that same night. Since "Crossover" originally aired on May 15, 1994, it suggests that the Viewer's Choice Marathon aired on May 15 as well, not May 24th as listed in the article.
I'd say that's pretty concrete evidence of an airdate dispute and I've edited the article to reflect it, unless someone can provide some contradicting evidence... Kyle C. Haight (talk) 23:07, November 2, 2012 (UTC)
