First Six Star Trek Movies getting 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray collection, standalone releases

First Six Star Trek Movies getting 4K Ultra HD collection, standalone releases

The comprehensive 15-disc collection includes the first six big-screen adventures featuring the original series crew in 4K Ultra HD

Star Trek fans will soon have new items to add to their home media shelves, as the first six Star Trek movies are getting released in 4K/HDR Ultra-HD — both as part of the 15-disc Star Trek: The Original Motion Picture Collection and as single-film releases. The Director’s Edition of The Motion Picture released earlier this year on Paramount+ is also getting a special home media release.

Fans can already watch the first four Star Trek movies in 4K/HDR thanks to the excellent Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection released last year. But now Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (which has taken on renewed attention recently thanks to a certain Star Trek: Strange New Worlds episode), and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, the last TOS-era Star Trek movie, will be watchable in 4K/HDR for the first time ever as part of Star Trek: The Original Motion Picture Collection, and as standalone releases.

The Star Trek: The Motion Picture included in The Original Motion Picture Collection is the painstakingly restored Director’s Edition, which recently became available for streaming on Paramount+. The Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan release includes that movie’s director’s cut, which was released in 2016, and theatrical cut. Star Trek III: The Search for Spock is only presented in its theatrical cut, as is Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. The Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country release includes the theatrical cut of the film, as well as the Director’s Cut that was released in 2004.

The Director’s Edition of The Motion Picture is getting a limited-edition collector’s set release, which you can pre-order here. This edition includes that movie’s theatrical cut and the “first-ever widescreen presentation of the Special Longer Version of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, originally created for broadcast television in 1983,” according to the press release, as well as deluxe packaging with exclusive collectibles, including reproductions of original promotional material, a booklet with behind-the-scenes images, stickers, and more.

    Anyone know if iTunes will auto-upgrade digital copies of each to 4K if they were previously purchased? Only asking because I think that that’s typically what they do, correct?

    Soooo… what if I’m interested in all six UHD releases, but want the extra TMP Theatrical/Longer Cut disc? I have to forego the set and buy them all individually?

      You could but the individuals for II thru VI, and the Complete Adventure set. Then you’d have it all content-wise in 4K.
