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

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

  • Trek Facts: Located at the top of the screen, this section includes 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 contains obscure facts about the episode and the actors who appear in it.
  • The Spock Market: Located at the right of the screen–this section is 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 dip and rise accordingly to certain "trigger events" that are seen in each episode. Viewers are 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 are assigned Starfleet ranks according to their total net worth. The top Spock Market trader is named the Grand Nagus. Stocks include the following:
