As part of our previous pre-order deal with SyFy, we're teaming up with the network to air a Star Trek marathon. On Monday, February 1, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., SyFy will air continuous episodes of Enterprise. And on launch day, Tuesday, February 2, from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., SyFy will air 13 hours of Star Trek: Next Generation. Enjoy the show as you're playing along in 2409!

Trek isn't on TV in Australia. Perhaps you could work wonders down here...

You know, if Trek was put on TV in Australia, we'd have even more European hate coming at the U.S.

The land of plenty doesn't have cable or satellite tv? The SyFy channel is on there.

Then we need Enterprise era uniforms for our characters!

You forgot "this is to keep you entertained, while the servers are down all day".

Hope some of the episodes include my favorite Andorian, Commander Shran and his female LT. He is an interesting character despite the ridiculously bright blue skin; very fiesty and combative. He was in a few episodes in the last season of Enterprise, which I think they will wrap up on SyFy before the marathon starts. It is all new to me. I only saw a few episodes of the initial broadcast of the first season, before I stopped watching. I will not be able to watch much of the marathon, that day, but will DVR as much as I can to watch as time allows.

I've love to see more StarTrek on SyFy channel, especially instead of all this stupid ghost hunter ******** lately. Spike TV runs as much or more scifi shows/movies as the SyFy channel

Their international channels are not showing the marathons but the Aussie SciFi is showing a TNG episode on Monday at least.

Edit: I'd rather watch just one episode of TNG than a marathon of Enterprise. lol

So if the people want the marathon, then contact their SciFi channels for it to join in on this. Apparently it was SciFi who decided to only put it on their US programming.

And outside the US they still use the normal spelling for it as in SciFi so maybe the international folks didn't know it's the same as SyFy. I see the old spelling on their non-US websites still.
