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.

STTNG Celebration of Season 2 was great! Wish we could see more TREKS (STTNG & TOS) on the big screen! The remastered stuff is awesome to watch! Let's have MORE!

While there are several advertisements for the first two seasons of TNG on Blu Ray, they have done a great job. The video looks great on the big screen and the surround sound audio is clear and immersive. One of the episodes that they showed, "Measure of a Man", had additional footage and it was great to see the added content. Most of the "specials" are very entertaining and give a great behind-the-scenes look at the show, without being too sappy. My friends and I went to both the season 1 and 2 viewings and were very satisfied with the experience. Overall, I'd recommend the next showing to all Star Trek fans.

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.

I joined fellow SF fans at the screening of remastered Season 2 episodes of Star Trek: the Next Generation. I enjoyed the camaraderie, special features, and look back at one of the best space opera TV shows as it hit its prime 25 years ago.
"Q Who?" introduced the Borg, which would become one of the franchise's greatest villains. John de Lancie's mischief maker played off nicely against Patrick Stewart's Capt. Picard and the rest of the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The remastered special effects were clean, although the colors or lighting seemed a bit too dark at times. The audio was excellent, with the starship sounds more pronounced during the opening credits and space battles.
"A Measure of a Man" included 13 minutes of restored scenes from Melinda Snodgrass' thoughtful script. Jonathan Frakes as Cmdr. Riker, Stewart, and Brent Spiner as Lt.Cmdr. Data shine in their roles examining android Data's rights. Overall, this did whet my appetite for more heroic, idealistic SFTV.
