“The Best of Both Worlds” is a new version of the classic STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION 2-part episode from 1990. The first part (episode 74) was the June cliff-hanger and the second part (episode 75) was the season opener in September. This new Blu-ray version has been digitally restored, converted to high-definition quality, and enhanced with new special effects.
As you Trekkies might remember, these are the episodes where the Enterprise and the Federation have to take on the Borg. The stunner is the Borg assimilation of Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart). I remember wandering around all summer in 1990 wondering what was going to happen. September couldn’t have arrived fast enough! If you’re a fan of Star Trek, you’re going to love this restored classic. “The Best of Both Worlds” has also been broadcast in Regal Theaters as part of the promotion of the new Star Trek movie, Star Trek: Into the Darkness which opens May 17.
