The perfect box set for any Trekkie...

"I was thrilled when I found this box set containing the first six "Star Trek" films in their two-disc collector's editions. I had to get it. Let's take a look shall we?"Star Trek: The Motion Picture" Rating: 3.5/5
This is the long-awaited director's cut which actually subtracts about 12 minutes and adds a few necessary special effects. The film isn't as boring as it used to be and the focus is now more on the story than the special effects. The second disc is pretty good as well with three interesting documentaries and a load of deleted scenes."Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" Rating: 5/5
This timeless sci-fi classic is now in beautiful widescreen with all the action and intensity in tact. This is even the director's cut with three more minutes of footage, though granted you don't even notice the added scenes. Overall it's a great movie and the features on the second disc are very worth the money."Star Trek III: The Search for Spock" Rating: 4/5
This third film adventure for the original crew of the USS Enterprise is an exciting and action-packed ride that almost equals it's predecessor. A very enjoyable film with great special features."Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" Rating: 4.5/5
This is the black sheep of the bunch in the sense that it's mostly a comedy, but it's well-done and an enjoyable adventure worth seeing."Star Trek V: The Final Frontier" Rating: 2.5/5
This is probably the worst of the movies, period. It tries to blend the action and adventure of films two and three with the comedy of film four and fails on an epic scale, not to mention shoddy special effects at the end."Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country" Rating: 5/5
Nicholas Meyer returns to direct this final voyage and it's excellent. This wraps up the story with the Klingons and sets the stage for "The Next Generation," which had been on the air for a few years by the time this film came out.Overall, it's a fantastic box set for any Trekkie or sci-fi movie buff. Each movie has a running audio as well as text commentary as well as documentaries on the makings of each film, trailers, and interviews. It's well worth it!"
Hold out for the Extras

"I am a huge Star Trek fan. So far I have bought four of the DVDs: The Next Generation triology and ST:IV. I was very disappointed in the lack of extras. Star Trek: Generations did not even contain a movie trailer. (ST:IV contained some decent extras.) Most serious Trek fans would love commentary from the directors and/or actors. It is well known that there has been footage that was not included in the theatrical releases of almost every Trek film. Most notably, ST:II, where missing footage was shown when it was originally broadcast on TV. This footage made a GREAT movie even BETTER. None of this was included in the DVD. It is rumored that Paramount will be releasing Special Editions of the Trek films, including a 2-disc set for ST:II. Don't pay Paramount twice. The Trek films are all on TV so often, that you can tape a rough copy while you wait for Paramount to give us the extras we want and deserve. (The reason I gave the set 2 stars is because they are decent movies.)"
Star Trek the legend

"Star Trek is truely a legend. To celebrate this legend after 25 years (in 1991), they put out this great box set of the first six Star Trek movies. And the case is beautiful too, so it'll look nice in with the rest of your videos. It's a must for any true Star Trek fan. If you don't have it yet, get it. It's worth it."
Get the 2004 Edition!!!

"I liked the original box series very much. All of the extra special features discs contained enough production and interview sequences on each of the six films. Some of it was filler like "is time travel possible" or "terra forming" where a lot of experts get very far off the subject of Star Trek. Paramount did an honest job of remastering each film to DVD, they are clear, sharp and crisp. It would have been nice to see more of the deleted scenes from Star Trek V so many could see why Bill Shatner pooped on Paramount for butchering the film into under 2 hours. But you honestly can't complain. It's a great set. Get it while Amazon still has it cheaper than eBay and everywhere else."
