Today In STAR TREK History: August 28th

There's a 98% probability it's a truck.
Welcome to our round-up of the Star Trek episodes which received their premiere broadcast on this day throughout the show's long history, along with anything else of note that may have taken place. All viewing figures quoted are for U.S. premiere broadcast (unless noted).

August 28th
The 37's was originally filmed as the season one finale of Star Trek: Voyager but along with three other episodes it was held back for the start of season two and so premiered on this day, August 28th 1995. Rather confusingly, the four episodes were shown out of order, meaning this original season one finale became the opening episode of season two. The 37's would've been episode 20 of season one, this was then followed by the originally planned episode 18, then 17, and finally 19, before new season two episodes began with Non Sequitur on September 25th. All of this is quite apparent thanks to the stated stardates in the first four episodes, they bounce around in the 48xxx's before episode 5 jumps to 49011.

As for The 37's itself, 7.5 million viewers saw the Voyager crew investigating the origins of a 1936 Ford truck found floating in space, before discovering a group of humans from the 1930s in stasis on a seemingly abandoned planet, including the lost Amelia Earhart.

Join us again next time for another round-up of the episodes broadcast, the movie's released, the special events, the birthday's celebrated and anything else of note that went down on this day in Star Trek history.
