While I wasn't sure about the slideshow of re-done scenes at the start of the event, I totally loved the episodes and interviews! "The Measure of a Man" episode was the original and complete episode that had been previously edited due its lengthy dialogue. I had never seen it before so I cannot give a comparison but I can say that this version was amazing in its depth and conviction. It reminded me of why I love this franchise so much and miss it so. Of course one of my favorite parts was the group interview. The TNG cast explained why they worked together so well and also why Dr. Crusher was missing from Season 2. I cannot wait for the release of Season 3 and highly encourage TNG fans to attend these events. It is rare to get to be in a room with others who sincerely appreciate Star Trek and TNG, unless of course you are lucky enough to go to Vegas or L.A. for the conventions.

This presentation was really fantastic. If the goal of putting this together was to sell Blu-rays, it certainly worked! Not only were we treated to two fantastic episodes of the series from Season 2 in HD but we were also shown lengthy snippets from the behind-the-scenes featurtte, the 2012 cast reunion in Calgary and most importantly -- the blooper reel! The signifcance of the latter can't be understated as Paramount has never been in the business of putting Star Trek outtakes out there for public consumption. These were discovered by the people going through the original negatives for the remastering, so in addition to never being seen before? All of the bloopers were in stunning HD! The whole presentation was neatly put together and I caught myself relishing the chance to see all 178 episodes in HD someday. Yes, these sets are pricey but if you are going to have a version of this beloved series on your shelf for years and years? It simply HAS to be these remastered versions.

I loved it, and can't wait for the rest of these events! Measure of a Man is definitely one of the best TNG episodes. Lots of fun to see on the big screen!

Took a friend of mine to see this screening with me and he didn't get it. He said he was bored! However, the extended version of "Measure of a man" was very well done and there were some scenes I had not seen before and were handled very well. The story is very much current in modern times and touches on philosophical problems of the past as well as the future.
Thoroughly enjoyed this very much - of course - anything that Gene Roddenberry created I'm all over it. Star Trek was and is a very positive story of the possibility that the 24th Century will be better than what it is today. At the very least, it gives us hope!!

The remastered episodes are wonderful and the extended version of Measure of a Man is perfect! My problem is with the venue -- AMC Desert Ridge in Phoenix AZ. The projector was NOT calibrated for this purpose and the image looked washed out for the entire presentation. I saw the first season event in Ventura CA and it was really well done. Hopefully I can see the season 3 event somewhere else.
