The First Four ‘Star Trek’ Movies Getting 4K UHD Blu-ray Release

Paramount Home Entertainment has announced the first four Star Trek films will be getting a refit to 4K Ultra HD.

Star Trek premiered on September 8, 1966, and on September 7th one day before the 55th anniversary Paramount Home Entertainment will release for the first time the original four Star Trek films – Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home — in 4K Ultra HD, along with the digital copies of the theatrical versions of each film and hours of previously released bonus content. The first four Star Trek films with also be available on individual Blu-rays with all the same bonus content.

If you are a fan of the franchise, you are obviously wondering when the other movies will also be getting the 4K upgrade? Most likely one or two follow-up sets should be coming featuring the other six films. Split between Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Generations, First Contact, Insurrection and Nemesis.

Releasing the first ten Star Trek films in small sets makes some sense as its easier to ask those fans who want to upgrade to the remastered 4K versions to do so two or three times than in one large set that could be price prohibiting. As of now there is no specific news or time frame for the other six movies.

The new 4K Ultra HD collection arrives on September 7th

Paramount Official announcement:

For the first time ever, experience the original four Star Trek films in stunning 4K Ultra HD. Newly remastered from original elements for optimal picture quality, each film is presented with Dolby Vision® and HDR-10.

This exceptional collection includes four Ultra HD discs, as well as four remastered Blu-ray discs with hours of previously released bonus content.

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 are presented on both the 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Discs, along with access to digital copies of the theatrical version of each film.
