Fans of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” may have thought their last chance to see Capt. Picard on the big screen passed when Paramount rebooted the “Star Trek” franchise under director J.J. Abrams.

But next week, in celebration of the Blu-ray release of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” Season One and the 25th anniversary of the “Next Generation” program, Picard, Data, Worf and crew return to the silver screen as part of a special Fathom Events screening.

“Star Trek: The Next Generation 25th Anniversary Event” beams to movie theaters nationwide at 7 p.m. local time Monday.

The event is presented by NCM Fathom and CBS, and will feature two Season One episodes of “Star Trek: The Next Generation”: “Where No One Has Gone Before” and “Datalore.”
