"Up the Long Ladder" was the 44th episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, the 18th episode of the show's second season, first aired during the week of 22 May 1989. The episode was written by Melinda Snodgrass and directed by Winrich Kolbe.

While the aired episode bore titles in a display font that rendered the name, typographically, as "Up The Long Ladder" (entirely in title case), The Star Trek Encyclopedia and other licensed sources render the title more correctly as "Up the Long Ladder".

Appendices

Background

The LCARS displays on Picard's desk viewscreen were matted in by the art department using a number of ship names not visible in the final television version of the episode. When the episode was remastered for HD, decades later, the text was re-done with subtle variations to avoid distracting the viewer with some of the joke references of the original. A preliminary draft of the art of the original was shown in the Star Trek: The Next Generation — The Official Magazine from Starlog.
