In September 1987, new Star Trek episodes were back on the air for the first time in 13 years. (The Animated Series had concluded in 1974. It was 18 years, however, since the last first-fun live action episode of the Original Series aired. And it’s ironic that there would also be new episodes in one series or another for the next 18 years, but I’m digressing…).
New Star Trek episodes were on the air in the guise of an entirely new series with a new cast and crew and a whole new set of characters called Star Trek: The Next Generation!
It’s now been 25 years since that time, and NCM Fathom and CBS are celebrating by bringing two remastered first season episodes to the big screen (“Where No One Has Gone Before” and “Datalore”) on Monday, July 23. Rave Bayou 15 is the only theater in the Pensacola area you’ll be able to see them, but they will be two showings: one at 7:00 p.m. and the other at 10:15 p.m. The Continuum, of course, will be there to help celebrate the entire night.
And if you’re interested in more public Star Trek showings, keep checking back to this website within the next few weeks. The Continuum is preparing whole new set of monthly events that we’re hoping to start in August. More details on this to follow.
