Paramount Home Media announced its first — of many — post-Labor Day releases this past week and it is a doozy!
On Sept. 6 — the first street-date Tuesday after Labor Day — they are unleashing 30-disc mega set on Blu-ray titled Star Trek 50th Anniversary TV and Movie Collection. The packaging is almost too good … why would you want to break the seal (but you must)!
Included are all three seasons of the original Star Trek television series — featuring William Shatner, the late Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei and second-season newcomer Walter Koenig — all six films featuring the original cast (from Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979 to Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country in 1991) and the short-lived animated series (1973/1974).
All of the bonus features included in the individual releases are also to be found in this “KEEPER” collection. These include the likes of the documentary, Star Trek: The Journey to the Silver Screen, and such featurettes as “The New Frontier: Resurrecting Star Trek,” “Maiden Voyage: Making Star Trek: The Motion Picture,” “The Genesis Effect: Engineering The Wrath of Khan” and “End of an Era: Charting the Undiscovered Country” (to name just a few).
There’s also a collectible Starfleet pin a six-strong collection of mini-posters (one sheet replicas) for the six films in the series.
