Fair use rationale for Image:Sierra logo.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Sierra logo.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Article incorrectly uses the term "back door pilot" under Setting?[edit]

Under Setting, the article currently states, "The series was spun off as a back door pilot episode of Emergency!."

I do not believe this to be correct. While "Sierra" was produced by the same people as "Emergency!", and while it was established in the "Sierra" episode, "The Urban Rangers", that the two shows do indeed exist in the same universe (by guest-starring "Emergency!" lead characters Roy DeSoto and Johnny Gage), "Urban Rangers" was fifth aired episode of "Sierra's" one (and only season).

A "back door pilot" in this case would mean the producers introducing the "Sierra" characters and/or concept on an episode of "Emergency!" first and as far as I can tell from having seen all of the episodes of "Emergency!" that aired prior to the start of "Sierra" in the fall of 1974, there was no "back door pilot" episode of "Emergency!"

The Wikipedia article even points out that the actual pilot episode of "Sierra", titled "The Rangers", was originally held back and not actually aired until last of the twelve "Sierra" episodes to air, on December 24, 1974.

I recommend that the sentence referring to the "Sierra" series being spun off as a back door pilot" be removed.

Seconded, neither referenced page even mentions the term backdoor pilot. LA (T) @ 01:38, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
