Four Original Star Trek Films Hit 4K Blu-ray In September

The first Star Trek episode aired on September 8th 1966, which means that the franchise is about to celebrate its 55th anniversary. Naturally, that means new Blu-ray releases - starting with a SteelBook edition of the complete Original Series. Paramount Home Entertainment will also deliver four of the original Star Trek films in 4K Ultra HD for the first time ever.

Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection will include Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (both the theatrical and director's cut), Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home in 4K UHD and Digital. Each film was newly remastered and presented with Dolby Vision and HDR-10.

Why this set only includes the first four films is anyone's guess, but it's safe to say that Star Trek V: The Final Frontier and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country will end up in a future 4K release. On that note, StarTrek.com has revealed that a restoration of the Director's Edition of Star Trek: The Motion Picture has just been greenlit, and is expected to take 6-8 months to complete.

Pre-orders for Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection are live here on Amazon for $70.48 with a release date set for September 21st. Odds are that the set will get a discount before the release date, and fans that pre-order early will automatically get it (you won't be charged until it ships). Bonus features on the set have been released previously, and are listed in their entirety below along with technical specs.
