We can officially report that the upcoming Season 3 theatrical celebration of Star Trek: The Next Generation has been scheduled for Thursday, April 25... and will feature the much-anticipated movie-length edit of "The Best of Both Worlds" on the big screen!
Along with the ninety-minute, completely remastered screening of the episodes, the CBS/Fathom event will also feature a look at the disc-exclusive documentary featurette, entitled "Regeneration: Engaging the Borg". If we're lucky, we may also get a glimpse at the all-new "Best of Both Worlds" gag reel, which will also be included with the Blu-ray when it's released on April 30.
Currently, the only theaters scheduled to show the event are in the United States, and like Season 2, it doesn't look like the event will extend to Canadian theaters. Here is the official write-up for the event from Fathom:
Fathom Events and CBS Home Entertainment are coming together again to celebrate Season 3 of the iconic series Star Trek: The Next Generation® in a special one night big screen event. For the first time ever, The Best of Both Worlds will be shown bigger and better as a full-length presentation only on Thursday, April 25th at 7:00 PM (local time) in select cinemas nationwide.
This not to be missed movie theater event will feature one of the most memorable moments in TV history and exclusive clips about the making of The Best of Both Worlds and Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 3.
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 – The Best of Both Worlds is the first opportunity to see The Best of Both Worlds, one of the greatest TV episodes of all time, as a gloriously remastered full-length feature in select movie theaters nationwide on Thursday, April 25th at 7:00 PM (local time).
