Probably the best 2 episodes of the Next Generation franchise

This was so great! I have seen this episode many many times but on the big screen it's even better. About the only small criticism I have is that it should have been preceded with the Q Who? episode. The Q Who prequel would give non Star Trek fans a better understanding of the Best of Both worlds; but I suppose a 3 hour movie would be too much for some people. Maybe the 3 shows could be broken up with a say 10 minute intermission between The Best of Both Worlds 1 and 2 so people could take a bathroom or snack break. Please do more of these! I suppose it would be difficult to beat the Best of Both Worlds. Here are my favorites (ran out of space, so I'm listing them by series #). 21, 33, 42, 52, 58, 70, 63,74, 75, 77, 86, 88, 89, 93, 95, 98, 100, 101, 103, 107, 108, 114, 115, 119, 123, 125, 133, 126,127, 136, 137, 140, 141, 144, 145, 148, 151, 156, 157, 167, 168, 171.

How great this was up on the big screen with dolby stereo and all that high tech stuff!! I have watched these 2 episodes countless times on my VHS tape that I painstakingly recorded when they first aired and this was amazing. The theatre was sold out and people showed up in Star Trek attire, I would go again and again.

Great job on updating the episode

The effects of updating the show to Blue-Ray quality are outstanding. You can even read more of the features on the faces of the characters, which only add to the story. I probably would have played the episodes first before the commentary, just so there would not be any "spoilers" to those who had not seen the show.

Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Best of Both Worlds

I really enjoyed the movie presentation of the great NextGen cliffhanger/two-parter episode "The Best of Both Worlds". The theatre that showed it, AMC 14 Kent, WA, did a great job. The picture was vivid & sharp and the sound was clear & crisp. I really enjoyed the making of documentary with the insightful commentary from those in front of the camera and behind the scenes. Since I've seen the episode numerous times it was not spoiler-filled. Had I not seen the episode before I might have preferred to have had the doc run after the feature. The blooper reel run after the feature was fun and definitely had me leaving the theatre with a smile on my face. The only thing that would have made the night better was for them to run all the previews for the new Star Trek Into Darkness movie coming out next month. Live Long and Prosper!

STAR TREK #1 in Entertainment

It's as great as it/s always been. There will never ever be any thing better or even as good as STAR TREK, no matter what episode it is. I would like to see them do this for every episode of all the STAR TREK series. I would be there to see them all even though I have them all.
