In addition to the two episodes, which will be introduced by the Okudas, fans will also be among the first to get a glimpse of the brand-new special features including interviews with the team behind the restoration as they discuss the process and countless man-hours dedicated to the upgrade of “The Next Generation.” The evening will conclude with an extended preview of the Season 2 Blu-Ray, which will be released later this year.
