For our Atlanta readers, we have a pair of tickets to give away for a screening of the episodes “Q Who” and the never-before-seen extended edition of “The Measure of a Man”.

Only One Night In Select Atlanta Movie Theaters

Thursday, November 29th at 7:00 PM (local time)
This not to be missed movie theatre event will feature two of the most popular Next Generation episodes, Q Who? and The Measure of a Man which will include, for the very first time, about 13 minutes of never before seen additional content.
This special event will also include exclusive looks at the extensive restoration taken to make Season 2 look better than ever before, never-before-seen interviews with the original cast members, a behind-the-scenes look at the artists who created the original FX elements and photography and a reunion with the original cast members, captured in December 2011, as they celebrate 25 years of this unforgettable series.
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 – A Celebration of Season 2 is the first opportunity to see a transcendent digital presentation and the world premiere of the extended cut of The Measure of a Man in select movie theaters nationwide on Thursday, November 29th at 7:00 PM (local time).
The mischievous entity, Q, sends the Enterprise hurtling 7,000 light years across the galaxy. Far from home, Picard and company make first contact with the deadly Borg, a hive-like society. The Borg are powerful, relentless, and have absolutely no interest in negotiation. Worse, they are now heading toward the Federation — and Earth.
THE MEASURE OF A MAN – EXTENDED VERSION
At the newly-established Starbase 173, Picard learns that Data, the android officer, is to be dismantled for scientific research. Data objects to the risky procedure, but is ordered by Starfleet to submit to disassembly. When Picard appeals the order, he finds himself pitted against Riker in a trial to find if Data has the right to choose for himself. Presiding over the trial is Captain Phillipa Louvois, a woman with whom Picard was once romantically involved. This is the world premiere of the extended version of this episode.
