Star Trek: The Next Generation was awarded a Peabody Award for the episode "The Big Goodbye". The Peabody Board saw the series as a new standard in syndicated television, and set forth a challenge to the broadcast industry to produce other shows in syndication of the same quality.
Rather than give in to the usual realities of "first-run" and produce a low budget, but profitable program, the producers chose instead to opt for the highest quality in writing, decor, acting, and, indeed, all facets of the production. In doing so, they have set a new standard of quality for first-run syndication and this is exemplified in the episode "The Big Goodbye."
