If the words “Star Trek: The Next Generation“, “$10 million restoration” and “enhanced special effects” get your motor running, then you probably already know about this event. You probably heard about it at the last Star Trek convention, where you dressed as the lesser known Orion slave girl from the original Star Trek series.
For those uninitiated to the finer details of Star Trek Generations, it was created over 20 years after the original Star Trek series, and became the longest running series of the Star Trek franchise, consisting of 178 episodes over 7 seasons.
On 17 July, for one night only, Star Trek Next Generation episode 106 “Where No One Has Gone Before” and episode 114 “Datalore” are being aired on the big screen. This is not only an opportunity to see a sci-fi classic on the big screen, but it’s also a chance to get a second wear out of that costume you bought for that Star Trek convention…
WHEN: Tuesday 26 July, 7pm
WHERE: various cinemas (see below link)
It comes as no surprise that Melbourne has cheekily emerged as Australia’s digital-scene capital at the fourth annual Pause Festival.
Back for its second year, this environmentally-conscious film fest sees the premiere of Gus Van Sant's Promised Land.
We speak with festival director Masafumi Konomi to find out what we can expect on the Melbourne leg of this travelling tribute to Japanese cinema.
