Bear in mind that newsgroups tend to have long lives.  This strikes me
as a somewhat short-sighted naming scheme.

I would suggest that you start with a single newsgroup.  If this proves
not to work, then you will have a good case for splitting the group,
perhaps along these lines:

    uk.media.tv.sf.startrek.misc
    uk.media.tv.sf.startrek.tos
    uk.media.tv.sf.startrek.tng.season-1
    uk.media.tv.sf.startrek.tng.season-2
    ...
