TNG 25th Anniversary Event In Theaters July 23


http://www.startrek.com/article/tng-25th-anniversary-event-in-theaters-july-23

Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season One will arrive on Blu-ray on July 24, and the restored episodes are so pristine and of such cinematic quality that they not only belong on movie screens, they will, in fact, play on movie screens. Star Trek: The Next Generation 25th Anniversary Event, a one-night-only, in-theater celebration is set for Monday, July 23, at theaters around the country. NCM Fathom Events, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution will present two of TNG’s most-popular episodes, “Where No One Has Gone Before” and “Datalore,” both handpicked by longtime Trek experts Mike and Denise Okuda.

Fans attending Star Trek: The Next Generation 25th Anniversary Event will also be treated to sneak peeks of the Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season One Blu-ray special features, which delve into the elaborate, comprehensive restoration project. Further, those in attendance can also expect to see an extended preview of Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season Two, which will be released later this year.

“We’re thrilled to be able to introduce Star Trek: The Next Generation to a new generation,” said Ken Ross, executive vice president and general manager of CBS Home Entertainment. “Seeing the episodes in a theater setting is the perfect way to show off the pristine picture that high definition allows and launch the first season on Blu-ray.”

Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events, added, “The Next Generation series is timeless. It’s hard to believe 25 years have gone by since this iconic show premiered on television. This special event celebrates the magic that made this beloved series so memorable.”

Tickets for Star Trek: The Next Generation 25th Anniversary Event will be available starting Friday, June 8, at www.FathomEvents.com and at the box office of theaters participating in the event. Visit www.FathomEvents.com for a list of theaters and pricing details. And keep an eye on StarTrek.com for additional news about Star Trek: The Next Generation 25th Anniversary Event.

No thanks. They were shot for 80s Tv which means its basically a square. Pointless on a rectangular or widescreen movie screen.

I wouldn't pay the inflated prices to see any old TV show in a theater.

While I think this is great, the sad truth is the first two seasons of TNG largely suck and aren't worth buying. The biggest problem was trying to offer up the assclown Ferengi as a serious rival and anything regarding Wesley.

I'll buy from three on, just like I did with the DVDs.

You can still project the image onto a large screen and it will look fine. It's not like you're going to see giant black bars in a dark movie theater. Who cares if the image is a square or a rectangle? I mean you could crop it to make it a rectangle but what would be the point?

They also redid a ton of special effects shots so it looks good in HD.

Don't forget Pulaski, beardless Riker, and weird robotic Troi.

I love STTNG and all things ST related but I'm not gonna shell out money to go and re-watch the series. That said, Dr. Pulaski was the single worst regular cast member of STTNG.

/the best Star Trek EVER was the Dominion War in DS9

She's not in either of those episodes.

In place of Where No One Has Gone Before (hate the PC title), I would have chosen the Big Goodbye. I suppose it was chosen because its more visual for the big screen. Season one had few good episodes as the show had trouble finding its own voice from the start. I suppose they couldn't use Encounter at Farpoint because it was already two hours. Although the episode run at 43 minutes. Unless they are adding extra features, they could run 3 episodes before trying an audiences patience.

Posted via Mobile DeviceThat's actually not true. The blu-rays are not transfers or remasters, they literally re-edited the programs using the original film elements:The great part is that since the show was actually entirely shot on 35mm film and then mastered to video for TV release, this means we can get actual proper 1080P transfers from the film itself (as opposed to the tape masters). The challenge there is that the film was not edited, and is technically all still rough, so the team has had to go back and re-edit directly from the film exactly as the episodes were (when they aired between 1987 and 1994), and have also gone through and re-composited every special effect (as opposed to simply upconverting from the video masters), and the audio has also been transferred to HD 7.1 DTS Master Audio. http://icebergink.blogspot.com/2012/02/blu-ray-review-star-trek-next.html

I don't think that would happen today.

Come to think of it, is there even anything that's first-run syndication these days? Like TNG and DS9 used to be, or Xena or Hercules. Or Babylon 5. Or Andromeda? The last one I remember was the Sword of Truth series.

The Inner light was the best episode evah. Way better than those two episodes. Agreed with other comments. Season III is when the series started becoming a consistent quality series.

They should have played "Yesterday's Enterprise". Would have shown up well on the big screen.

That's my personal favorite.

Speaking of this, I think I've mentioned in the past my friend who deals in movie/TV memorabilia. One of the items he currently has is the uniform Tricia O'Neil (Captain Garrett) wore in this episode. I was over at his house and saw it about an hour ago.

That's from the third season.

I'm sure they'll get around to it.

Personally I would go fucking nuts for the best of both worlds on a movie screen.

I realize this episode comes way later but the best episode of STTNG ever was the two parter "Chain of Command" (season 6).

Yep, it's better with the fade out and TO BE CONTINUED and then everyone in the living room screams out loud, suddenly realizing that they have to wait 3 months.

Holy crap, I had to google "Where No One Has Gone Before" just to see what episode it was, it is so forgettable.

I can't believe they picked this gay piece of shit to put on the big screen.

Someone needs to die for that decision.

They were essentially experts hired by the show for continuity, set design including the computer consoles and advise on technology used in the series. Okuda wrote the Star Trek Encyclopedia.

That's bullshit.

Any episode with Lore is amazing.

See "Brothers," which also features Brent Spiner playing Dr. Soong.

Brent Spiner playing 3 characters in one episode FTW.
