It was great! I loved the special features, and it was cool to see the episode on the big screen. Some of the costumes and make-up didn't look so good on the big screen, but it was still fun.

The presentation began with a half-hour long documentary on behind the scenes interviews with the crew and members of the set (endlessly clamoring over themselves)...but I digress. What really got to me was the way it served as the ultimate spoiler by revealing how the effects were made and repeatedly showing the final sequence with the Borg ship. I know I've seen it before, but the "magic" of why I wanted to revisit it was wiped away. I really wish the documentary would have come after the show. I mean, would I want to see a magician's act after they tell us the secrets of their tricks?
When the show finally began, I noticed the images were very dark, so much so that the blacks in all the scenes were crushed. I walked out, knowing that it would look much better on my 42" screen at home on Blu-Ray. I did, however get my money back. Perhaps it's the fault of the local Regal theater here in Westbury, NY, who knows. Maybe I'm just too picky,

Spent 30 minutes before the episodes watching every major plot point be spoiled and ruined by a documentary with the cast and crew, which would have been awesome to have been AFTER the film and not BEFORE the film.
To top it all off, once the main event started, about 15 minutes into it there was a "data sync" error on the screen, it displayed wonky pixels for about 10 seconds and then skipped ahead about 20 minutes. We went from introductions of the upstart blonde LT to Picard being abducted by the borg. No one from the theater came in to explain anything and eventually half the room got up to go see what was going on. There never was any official word on what actually happened, and gave me the impression we were paying to watching a crappy DVR projected on a screen that had lines in it.
Very disappointing, was my first experience with these types of special events and I see no particular reason to ever go back again.

Completely restored with great sound and awesome picture quality. A must for any Star Trek fan.
The bloopers at the end of the show were the best!

Yesterday's showing of this very special Star Trek event was a disaster. Twice during the showing at the Regal Stonecrest, the download was lost and each time about 10 minutes of the special event were lost. Many boos!
The theater did try to overcome this by giving all who attended a free ticket to any upcoming movie. The theater was full.
Overall, I can't understand why 'downloads' like this are not done early and checked out before showing them.
Sadly, this will cause many not to attend future Star Trek events.
My "so-so" rating is not for the Star Trek show, but for the execution of the whole event.
