Who wants to see Picard, Riker, Data, Geordi, Troi, Worf, Beverly, Wesley, and even Tasha on the big screen again?

Just the other day on the podcast I was talking about how on May 19, 2005 I thought, "This will be the last time I'll get to go to a theater and ask for tickets to Star Wars" (barring repeat viewings of Ep3 of course), and then lo and behold three years later, in August 2008 I got to do it again with The Clone Wars. And then again this year with Episode 1 in 3D.

Well, now it's Star Trek's turn. Now you might be thinking, "Well...duh Nic. They're filming J.J. Abrams' second Trek film now. You and a few others are talking about it on the ID Forums." True. But this is something different. Something very different.

StarTrek.com is reporting today about a special one-night-only event in movie theaters across the country on Monday, July 23rd. Two episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation will be shown in theaters ("“Where No One Has Gone Before” and “Datalore,”), along with a sneak peek at some of the special features on the TNG Season One Blu-ray (which will be releasing the following day). Also, there will be an extended preview of the Season One Blu-Ray, and an extended preview of Season Two, which they are announcing will be released later this year.

Here's the link:

It's probably not too far out of line for me to go ahead and say it here and now: Josh, Todd, and I will be there!

Peace and Long Life,
