Both myself and my wife are latecomers to ST:NG and have been watching on Netflix. We had not seen Best of Both Worlds yet, so the fact that they showed the Behind the Scenes BEFORE the movie RUINED the suspense of everything!, We now knew what was going to happen so the whole cliffhanger appeal was gone. I would have liked if they played Part I first, then a 5 minute intermission, and then Part II, then the Behind the Scenes last.
The sound was great, the re-mastering pretty good but I thought the color saturation was slightly overdone and a little artificial.
That said, we enjoyed the evening and really love the idea of special events like this. More please!

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.

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 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.

The Best of Both Worlds is one of the finest episodes of the Next Generation series. Unfortunately Fathom Events did not do it justice. The video quality was acceptable (not HD quality) and the audio left much to be desired. All the audio was in the front of the theatre with little stereophonic effect, no surround and little bass. Next Gen was one of the first TV Series not only broadcast in stereo but also had Dolby Surround. It sounded better on my home sound system when it first aired than it did last night at the theatre. The advertisement for the Blu-Ray release of Next Gen Season 4 had better video and audio quality than the main feature. I'm not sure it was worth $15/ticket to see it on the big screen without the benefit of the quality of the theatre's projector and sound system.
