  • "Encounter at Farpoint" is the first episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation to be aired.
    • Rather than airing on a network, the new series was sold into syndication, to be shown by various local television stations at a time of their choosing. Because of this, the initial airdates of each episode of the series varied throughout the normal calendar week based on the station airing the show.
