Season 2 Theatrical Event Date Revealed
 
Quote:

Several theaters in the U.S. are now stating that the Season 2 special (entitled "Star Trek: The Next Generation - A Celebration of Season 2") will hit the big screen (in selected theaters) on Thursday, November 29 (for one night only). The Season 2 blu-ray set would then be released just a few days later on Tuesday, December 4.

I thought it was better to start a new topic so people don't miss out on this news. Now the big question will be which two episodes will they be going with?

I'm so there. Totally worth it the first time and seeing Q Who? on the big screen is gonna be wild! :bolian:

"The Measure of a Man" and "Q Who" would be my guess. They're season 2's one-two punch that turned TNG in the right direction and into a revered TV classic.

Time Squared and Shades of Grey, naturally.

I actually liked Time Squared. It was one of the better season two episodes. :)

Yeah me too. One of those high-concept, more adventurous sci-fi episodes that pervaded S2. That's what I like best about the season. They still took chances but the writing was 10x better than Season 1.

As discussed elsewhere, "Contagion" would be cool too.

That would be a great action episode to show alongside "Q Who".

I have my doubts "The Measure of a Man" will be shown. It is a great episode, but it's a court drama that really wouldn't benefit from being shown on the big screen.

Why haven't CBS announced what the two episodes are yet?!

Do they expect us to get tickets without knowing what they are? What if the episodes they are showing turn out to be "The Outrageous Okona" and "Shades of Gray"? :lol:

The sad part is I'd still go. (I mean Terri Hatcher as the hi-def transporter ensign... :drool:).

on a related tangent...

In 1989 I went on one of those Sea Trek convention cruises. Majel was onboard and she announced she had a special surprise.

She brought along the eps "Q Who?" for a special screening in the ship's cinema. It was before the first airing and it wasn't a finished edition (still needed some sound mixing and soundtrack work).

But we got to see "Q Who?" on kind of a big screen at sea, before it even aired on broadcast.

So I count myself as one of the few to have already seen "Q Who?" on the big screen, in a roundabouts way decades ago.

So this screening is going to be far more limited? That sucks. :(
