This page is a list of appearances of the number 47.

The tradition to include the number 47 in episodes after episodes was begun by Joe Menosky, the Executive Story Editor during the fourth season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. The number 47 has since then been used by many other editors.

To read a more detailed explanation about the number 47 you can read the article about it.
