Star Trek fans will want to keep an eye out for these classic films.
Star Trek was a television franchise before it was anything. Premiering in the 1960s, it was a fairly successful show but was often looking up to more popular series in the same timeslots. The production cost and declining ratings caused its cancellation.
It was eventually relaunched as a movie franchise, which was, at best, an uneven creation of films. The first film debuted at a huge box office but was panned critically. The film series was saved by the second film, Wrath of Khan, and from there the series produced four more films.
Its popularity reached an apex and the film franchise ended up helping create a new television series. That series, The Next Generation, ran against the last several films of the original series, helping establish a wild time in Trek that helped fortify its future, and helping pave the way to get to where we are.
You can now own the first six Star Trek films with the highest definition possible
Now, those films that helped rejuvenate the franchise and launch it to untold levels, can now be yours in the highest definition possible. If you’ve seen the films and have Paramount+, maybe you don’t see why this would be a thing people would want. That’s fine.
Yet, if you’re a movie fan, or you don’t want to pay for yet another streaming service, then getting the Star Trek DVD set, in its highest definition yet, makes all the sense in the world.
The new set will bring the franchise into 4K Blu-Ray and will feature all six films, plus the extended and director’s version of the first film, Star Trek The Motion Picture.
