Personally, I’m going to pass on the screening since season one is pretty weak, and the series hadn’t figured out what it wanted to be, so it basically copied better episodes of the original Star Trek. However, I wouldn’t mind if these showings became a regular thing. I would totally buy tickets for a screening of “The Best of Both Worlds: Part 1 and 2″.
