Today In STAR TREK History: September 4th

Space. The final frontier...
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).

September 4th
As you may well know, Star Trek (The Original Series) premiered on US television on September 8th 1966 with the broadcast of The Man Trap, but a select few people got a sneak advance viewing of the series on September 4th that year when Gene Roddenberry showed the original version of Where No Man Has Gone Before at the annual World Science Fiction Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. This marked the first showing of Star Trek to the general public. Soon after, to the request of convention goers, Roddenberry also screens a black-and-white print of The Cage.

Wouldn't you have liked to have been in that crowd, eh?

Two episodes from Star Trek: Voyager for you know, Initiations and Basics: Party II, premiering on September 4th 1995 and 1996 respectively. Both viewed by 5.9 million US viewers.

The second episode from season 2, Initiations saw Chakotay become caught up in a young Kazon's rite of passage. As for the opening episode of season 3, Basics: Part II resolved the season 2 cliffhanger, seeing the crew return to basics in order to survive on a harsh world inhabited by alien natives and vicious predators. whilst Suder and The Doctor assist Paris' attempts to retake Voyager from the Kazon-Nistrim.

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.
