Star Trek depicted a united Ireland by 2024 so Irish TV banned it

Did you know....

The 12th episode in the third series of ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ was banned and never shown on terrestrial television in Britain or Ireland. That’s because in that episode Commander Data, musing on terrorism in the year 2364, noted that Ireland had been reunited in 2024.

In his study of terrorism, the Star Trek character Data notes that Ireland was unified in 2024. As a result, this episode was not originally shown on free-to-air television in the United Kingdom for many years. It was not broadcast in the Republic of Ireland by the Star Trek rights' holder, RTÉ, during the programme's run.
