For the first time, Star Trek: The Original Series will be released on Blu-ray with SteelBook packaging. Every episode and over nine hours of bonus features will be contained inside these new SteelBook case designs.
Star Trek fans can pre-order the SteelBook Star Trek: TOS set here on Amazon for $109.99 (24% off) with a release date set for September 7th. Note that you won't be charged until it ships, and you'll automatically get any additional discounts that occur during the pre-order period.
Collectible SteelBooks are all the rage in the Blu-ray space these days, though you'll be paying a hefty premium on this set. At the time of writing, the standard Star Trek: The Original Series Blu-ray set is available here on Amazon for only $59.98. It appears to include identical content.
Again, Amazon will automatically give you the biggest discount on the Star Trek: The Original Series SteelBook Blu-ray set when you pre-order. We wouldn't be surprised to see the price drop quite a bit further before the release date, and when it does you'll automatically lock it in. It would need to drop quite a bit to make the SteelBook upgrade worth it for anyone outside of superfans and collectors.
