Explanation:
Or possibly also Prolog. (Cf. the English reference below)

Jede Episode der TNG startet mit einem Teaser [12], der in komprimierter Form bereits den Konflikt der Episode andeutet und einen Lösungsansatz bereit hält (BSP). Dies ist allerdings erst bei einer Rückwärtigen Betrachtung erkennbar. Nach der Exposition setzt ein Problem ein, das im Laufe der Episode zu überwinden ist [13].
[12] Das ist der Teil der Episode, der direkt vor dem Vorspann gezeigt wird.

Da sich Elite Force aber wie eine reale TV-Episode mit Teaser und Trailer präsentiert, wurde hier auf Klasse statt Masse gesetzt.

There are a couple of other acts that don't have numbers but, instead, have names. If you have these, there will be no more than one before Act 1 that might be called TEASER, COLD OPENING, or PROLOGUE. There might also be one following the final act called EPILOGUE or TAG. In a sitcom, a teaser, or cold opening takes place before the first commercial break and the tag takes place after the last commercial. Both of these parts of the script don't have anything specifically to do with the story and could be removed from the show (which is often what happens when a show gets syndicated so that the syndicators can squeeze in more commercials).
