      Wal-Mart currently has all three seasons of TOS for about $55 each.
      Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

        It is almost never the case that a station is an affiliate for more than one major network, like NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox. (The exceptions are a few areas served by four or fewer TV stations. In those cases stations may decide to take different nights from different networks, or even different shows on the same night from different networks. But there are very few such remaining, and even in those areas cable and satellite usually make the full network feed from the "excluded" network[s] available.)

        The major networks all schedule many hours of network programming, in day and evening hours, 7 days a week. The only stations that could be affliated with more than one network under normal conditions were the ones that took WB and UPN shows when each network only offered a couple of night's original programming. Since those have merged into The CW, there are now more independent stations around, and therefore more a syndication market than existed a year ago.

        In any event, this is all moot. The Trek reruns are being syndicated, not airing on any network at all, just as B5, DS9 and TNG were. That means they are sold on a station-by-station basis for airing in off-network hours. Independent, network affiliate, doesn't matter. (In my area B5 aired in the 7 to 8 PM ET slot on the UPN station - right before Voyager. ) But those were all syndicated originals, airing for the first time, and more likely to get primetime or near-primetime slots. Trek is a 40 year old rerun, albeit one that has been given a new coat of paint, so less likely to get prime scheduling real estate.

        The networks are not involved at all in the whole operation. CBS/Paramount corporation owns the rights to the show because CBS and Paramount became corporate siblings, but the CBS network, which is a different entity owned by the same parent, has nothing to do with this reissue.

          Was anyone else dissapointed by the ruddy facial closeups and amateur CGI renderings?

                I was referring to JDM's long, yet uninformative diatribe on the nature of network affiliates and how CBS is not involved with the syndication of Star Trek.

                  Amazingly enough, I saw this ep for the first time last night. It was a pretty convoluted plot, and I felt that they were trying too hard to be clever, but it made sense and was good.

                  The best moment was when Sloan revealed that he recruited Bashir not because he'd do what they wanted him to do, but because he'd do what they DIDN'T want him to do. Just awesome.
