Star Trek: The Next Generation 2.0

"Prepare to be assimilated."

Star Trek: The Next Generation 2.0 was G4's special edition of Star Trek: The Next Generation which premiered on 15 January 2007.

TNG 2.0 was broadcast in a format in which an episode was shown in a mortice surrounded by fan-interactive features similar to that of Star Trek 2.0. The four sections included:

  • Trek Facts: Located at the top of the screen, this section included a scrolling information bar at the top of the screen (similar to the ones found at the bottom of the screen on CNN or Fox News Channel) that contained obscure facts about the episode and the actors who appeared in it.
  • The Spock Market: Located at the right of the screen – this section was an interactive "stock market" meets fantasy sports feature containing the changing stock prices of companies named for various TNG characters and items (such as Jean-Luc Picard = JLP) that dipped and rose according to certain "trigger events" that were seen in each episode. Viewers were invited to participate online on the G4 website to create an online portfolio in order to trade such stocks to amass a fictional fortune in gold-pressed latinum. Players were assigned Starfleet ranks according to their total net worth. The top Spock Market trader was named the Grand Nagus. Stocks included the following:
