Win tickets to a screening of "The Best of Both Worlds" in Chicago!

April 17, 2013|Elliott Serrano, for Redeye

If you're a Star Trek: The Next Generation fan in Chicago, I would hope that you've been able to check out one of the previous screenings that Fathom Events have been putting on in the area. As CBS Home Entertainment has been issuing the re-mastered seasons of the show, Fathom shows select episodes from each season on a limited number of movie theaters.

I've attended screenings of episodes from Seasons One and Two - which were fun - but now they're up to Season Three and will be screening a remastered version of the 2 episodes that finally made me a Star Trek TNG fan.."The Best of Both Worlds"!

Really, I tried getting on board with TNG in Season One, but just found the acting and dialogue to be wooden and bordering on campy. You could tell they were trying too hard to emulate the feel of the classic Star Trek series.

The show really found it's identity with the 3rd season, when the Enterprise crew found themselves facing the threat of the Borg, characters that would go on to be the most memorable of the series. And the season 3 cliffhanger was a real jaw-dropper!

Now Trekkies (or is it Trekkers? I'm never sure) can enjoy that memorable moment on the big screen with showings at area theaters. Here are the details on the event, and how you can win a pair of tickets to a screening:

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.

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.
