This has to be, if not the best, one of the best Star Trek episodes ever! To be able to see it on the big screen was terrific. The crowd in the theater was a small one, but it was all Star Trek fans. Everyone knew the episode well, and the applause at the end was spontaneous. This, for a two hour, 20-some year old episode of a long gone television series.

I've seen this/these episode/s a couple hundred times at least (when it came out on TV/re-runs and when I purchased the series on VHS back in the 90s). They restored it from the original negatives and it made watching it like it was HD to begin with. I took my daughter who is 13 and she loved it, and was happy to see that there was a lot of parents who brought their children. Everyone had a great time. Besides the episode/s they had trivia, interviews with crew/cast, they showed a lot of stills from the series that showed the original and restored versions, the best part besides the episodes was the blooper reel.

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.

If you like Star Trek, or suspenseful sci-fi, this is for you. It was well written, well directed, and very well acted, and the special effects are top notch. It is appropriate, funny at times, witty, but also dramatic and explosive. There are some pretty intense scenes and exchanges and I very much enjoyed it. This is a story about all of humanity hanging in the balance, but it also focuses primarily on some mega difficult challenges faced by Picard and Riker in particular. I believe you won't be disappointed watching this excellent production.

Saw it at the Regal Stonecrest in Charlotte and overall I did enjoy the experience. That being said, 1) the concession line moved at a snails pace so by the time I sat down the Making Of doc had already started. Also it had spoilers which many have already complained about. 2) During THE most crucial scene at the end of Part 1, the screen pixelated and we got an error message that the download link was lost!!!! WTF? When it was reestablished, it jumped ahead a few minutes so we missed Riker's line, "Mr. Worf... fire." and "To be continued", arguably one of the best TV cliffhangers ever. The image broke up again later. 3) It was not shown in HD like at some theaters, and the sound wasn't any better than my TV at home. I was surprised the theater was so full, and while it was nice to be among other fans, there wasn't any applause when it was over. Oh well. Some good news, though: When exiting, they gave everyone a readmission ticket to make up for the tech glitches. Only logical. LOL
