G4 to Launch The Next Generation 2.0

G4 will debut an interactive version of Star Trek: The Next Generation in January.

Building upon its successful Star Trek 2.0 initiative, Star Trek: The Next Generation 2.0 will include on-screen live chat, behind-the-scenes information, trivia games and interactive features that viewers can access via G4’s Web site.

Star Trek: The Next Generation debuts on the network Monday, Jan. 15 at 9 p.m. (EST/PST). Star Trek 2.0 was introduced in April.

“The young-male demo is driving today's media revolution," G4 president Neal Tiles said in a prepared statement. "Increasingly, they are demanding a more interactive, multiplatform experience. Our goal is to offer them TV that guys can get their hands on -- literally.”
