    I've noticed that star trek's tng, voyager and enterprise are constantly in circulation on sky one but to date, I've seen no sign of Deep Space Nine - does'nt sky have the screen rights for this series?

    I think they do have the rights, they just are choosing to show it at the moment. They did show it in a weird 6AM timeslot a few months ago, but it hasn't been shown at a decent time for quite a while.

    It could be that Sky thinks it doesn't have the same appeal to the casual viewer due to it's larger story arc, but that shouldn't make much difference.

    Tad disappointed with Sky not showing DS9, arguably the est of the Trek series IMO. TNG seems to get endless repeats on Sky One and Sky Mix. A shame considering all the options Sky have if they have the rights to all the series. Here's hoping for some more DS9 soon.

    I'm sure it wasn't that long ago that DS 9 was showing on Sky mix at around 7pm ! I imagine DS 9 is taking a break from the current Sky Schedule. Voyager was noticeably absent for a while until it returned last year. Your best bet is to contact Sky and show there is a demand for it, the more people who e-mail, the more likely it will return.

    Apparently season 4 is a bit of a let-down

    Not according to my mate, who has downloaded all the episodes shown so far in the U.S. He tells me i wont be disappointed - and although he's a big fan, he would still admit if there were any stinkers..
