I am Bobby of Borg. You will be assimilated. Your life as it has been... is over. Resistance is futile.

Why, yes. I am excited to see Best of Both Worlds on the big screen. Why do you ask?

Star Trek: The Next Generation's season 3 cliffhanger and season 4 premiere is arguably one of the series best stories. In fact, the cliffhanger ending to Best of Both Worlds Part 1 still ranks as one of the greatest cliffhangers of all time. Back in the pre-internet days (back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth) it was a long wait until season 4 returned. We had no idea if Patrick Stewart's Captain Picard would return or how the Enterprise and her crew were going to stop the Borg.

It was a long, torturous wait.

On Thursday, April 25, 2013, for one night only, Fathom Events is showing The Best Of Both Worlds as a feature length film at select theaters across the country as part of the marketing for the new Blu-Ray release of Star Trek: The Next Generation season 3. Completely restored with cleaned up, and in some case brand new, special effects, this is a must see event.

If you've never seen Best of Both Worlds, I highly recommend this. For a nice double feature, follow up with a viewing of Star Trek: First Contact, which is pretty much a sequel to this two-part episode.

I've already got my ticket. See you there.
