I think this is the third one of these they've done in the past couple of years. They take classic TNG episodes (the awesome new remastered ones with shiny new special effects) and project them on the big screen so you can nerd out in person with other Trekkies.

This Thursday's event is playing what many consider to be the greatest episodes of The Next Generation's 7-year run, "The Best of Both Worlds" (Part 1 & 2), merged into one theatrical-length presentation

It's one night only - Thursday April 25 at 7pm, and there are 6 venues participating in Las Vegas, so there's bound to be one near you

See you there!

The Best of Both Worlds pt 1 was the best episode of any of the Star Trek series. Part 2, nothing special.

I remember my head nearly exploding when they ended pt 1 with the cliffhanger.

Incorrect... that very distinctive spot, best episode, goes to one and only one... and it's not even from the best series.

Star Trek Voyager... Season 2 Ep Death Wish

the most insightful, original and thought provoking episode by far... I almost forgot to mention also, the saddest

I love Voyager!

It's probably tied with TNG for my favorite series, mostly due to Janeway being the best captain ever.

Actually my favorite of the series was Deep Space 9. Since they didn't change venues constantly, they were able to really explore the cultures and develop a real sense of intrigue.

I'll have to see if I can find it somewhere. I don't remember it (by name.)

And on the topic, tickets are already on sale for the Wednesday May 17 fan sneaks (2 showings) of Star Trek Into Darkness (2 days before wide release) at the Palms IMAX in 3D

Normally the Palms only sells movie tickets 7 days in advance, but they're making an exception for this special event

Space. The Final Frontier.

Humans will go extinct at some point. And when we do, it will probably in in outer space as we desperately search for habitable places to live after our planet is not longer able to sustain life.

It is in our nature to die trying. To go down with a fight.

Either that, or we'll find another planet, and start all over again.

I know at least one CDer that is planning on attending this nerd fest. I'd be going myself if I didn't have relatives in town that night.
