    The two airings of STD could have been cleared away for airings of IV and VI instead. Just sayin’.

    Come to think of it, is it just me or does TVH never seem to make it into these Trek movie marathons? I swear I never see it in the cable listings, though the other five flicks have gotten cable airplay fairly regularly through the years.

    Which is odd considering that IV is very, very popular.

    The new movies are the showcase of the franchise; EPIX was just supposed to ignore them for you and the other haters? Get real.

  • Why are they showing #3 twice and #4 not at all? That doesn’t make sense. Not only was #4 quite popular, it’s the conclusion to the story arc begun in #2!
