Just as they did for the release of Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s first season on Blu ray, CBS and Fathom Events are teaming up again to ring in the upcoming release of the series second season on December 4th. A few days ahead of that, Trekkies and other curious parties have the chance to check out two of the season’s best episodes, remastered for glorious high definition and up on the Big Assed Screen:

NCM Fathom Events and CBS Home Entertainment are coming together again to celebrate Season 2 of the iconic series Star Trek: The Next Generation in a special one night big screen event.
Star Trek: The Next Generation – A Celebration of Season 2
In Select Movie Theaters Nationwide
Thursday, November 29th at 7:00 PM (local time)
Only One Night
This not to be missed movie theatre event will feature two of the most popular Next Generation episodes, “Q Who?” and “The Measure of a Man” which will include, for the very first time, about 13 minutes of never before seen additional content.
This special event will also include exclusive looks at the extensive restoration taken to make Season 2 look better than ever before, never-before-seen interviews with the original cast members, a behind-the-scenes look at the artists who created the original FX elements and photography and a reunion with the original cast members, captured in December 2011, as they celebrate 25 years of this unforgettable series.
Set in the 24th century, The Next Generation was created by Gene Roddenberry over 20 years after the original Star Trek series. The Next Generation became the longest running series of the Star Trek franchise, consisting of 178 episodes over 7 seasons. Star Trek: The Next Generation – A Celebration of Season 2 is the first opportunity to see a transcendent digital presentation and the world premiere of the extended cut of “The Measure of a Man” in select movie theaters nationwide on Thursday, November 29th at 7:00 PM (local time).
Oh, hell yeah!
Unlike the event for Season 1, I have no doubts about wanting to see these two episodes on the big screen. Both are standout entries from the TNG’s second year, each for very different reasons.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on November 2nd, but you if you follow the link provided by StarTrek.com, you can buy tickets in advance at participating theaters in your areas.
