This event will be different from the Paramount/CYA.LIVE virtual screening of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan last Saturday. The IGN Watch From Home event requires you to bring your own copy of the film. If you don’t have a copy, it can be rented for $2.99 at Apple, Google, Vudu, YouTube, and other digital movie providers. There is no charge to join the Watch From Home stream, which you can watch live on IGN.com, and IGN’s YouTube channel. You can also participate in the live chat using their Discord or Twitter.
Jonathan Frakes began his directing career on Star Trek: The Next Generation and made his jump to feature films helming Star Trek: First Contact in 1996. The film was the most successful of the four TNG-era movies in terms of both box office performance and critical response.
