This event featured two of TNG's best episodes, "Q Who?" (where we first encounter the Borg), and "The Measure of a Man" (where a hearing is held to determine Data's status as Star Fleet property or an individual, sentient being).
"The Measure of a Man" included about 12 minutes of restored footage that had been cut from the episode, as it had originally ran too long. It was interesting to see the extra footage, though I could also see that it wasn't quite necessary to the story.
The best parts were the extras, including bloopers from second season, a cast reunion, and other interviews with people who worked on the show. It's very interesting to see how things were done, and to learn why certain decisions were made. I gained a lot of insight into what happened as they were making the show.
If you have no interest in Star Trek and TNG, then you won't be upset that you missed this. But if you are a fan of TNG and didn't go, you missed a great event.

STNG fabulous as always and a treat on the big screen. I especially enjoyed the reunion. What a first class group of actors. Why this series has not won every award in the book baffles me.
I hope STNG will be shown on the big screen in its entirity. And yes I would like to see tham all back in action. If they can show mature people in India why not in space. Go for it.
I think the series should be mandatory viewing - all ages can get something out of it-first rate acting -moral-plot-directing and a good time watching. Give hope that maybe humans can pull it off after all.

I love that they are releasing a couple episodes in the theatres. I know that it's mostly a marketing ploy to make you want to buy the blu-ray for all the extras (and it totally works), but being able to see my favorite characters on the big screen is so great!
I've attended both the first and second season releases and intend to attend all seven seasons, plus any other ST series that they release!
The choice of shows for the Season 1 release was excellent! I totally agreed with those. I wasn't quite in agreement with the second choice for the Season 2 release, but I still enjoyed myself thoroughly.

These Fathom Events featuring Special editions of TNG Episodes are an absolute must for any Trekkie! We had an absolute blast! Being in a room with 50 other Trekkies, all watching the episodes together outweighs any issues I had with lighting or sound of the presentation. Granted, the video itself was a bit dark, and the sound was a bit off, but I didn't care. TNG on the big screen, my fellow Trekkies in the room, experiencing it with me, this was the most fun I had at the moives in years (or at least since the Season 1 presentation)! I can't wait until Season 3!!

I loved the 2 features shown, the round-table interviews, and the documentary portions. A bit of everything just like a taste sample at an All-Sweets buffet! Of course this cast and crew are all top-notch... in my opinion, it doesn't get any better. Star Trek is for all ages, but should appeal to the very open-minded, outside-the-box thinkers. I really hope they do this for the release of all 7 seasons! I won't miss one, and will tell everytone to try and catch this once-in-a-lifetime theatre going experience! What an awesome treat!
