All the above sets come out on September 22nd. We are still waiting for box art for the other catalog releases for September 22nd (see article for more detail) as well as the Star Trek 2009 movie release coming November 17th (see article for more details). 

None of the September releases are available for pre-order yet. So far USA Amazon only have pre-release links for two of the Star Trek 2009 movie releases

We will provide updates as more pre-releases and box art become available.

Anyone hear anything on the Directors cuts of ST 1-VI on blu ray yet?

2. New Horizon - July 21, 2009

PARAMOUNT! Get the Robert Wise edition of the motion picture on Blue Ray already.

3. Jordan - July 21, 2009

Very sexy box.

4. SciFiMetalGirl - July 21, 2009

Love the image! But what’s a J-card?

5. I'm dead Jim - July 21, 2009

Yeah, nice box but I’ve got the DVDs and they look fine. When I HAVE TO get a blu ray player, we’ll talk.

6. Seany-Wan - July 21, 2009

After repeated viewings, “Generations” has quite a few good Star Trek moments. IMO, better than “Insurrection” and “Nemesis” (would love to have Nick Myer do a commentary on that film: NICK “Oh that is where they stole from my film…”)
Soran is definitely a better villain than most think. I also loved the music entitled “The Nexus / A Christmas Hug”.

Breaks my heart when Kirk talks about the clock and he says “I gave this clock to Bones.” Shatner’s Kirk should have died like George Kirk did in Star Trek.

7. ObiWanCon - July 21, 2009

Did I miss a Star Trek movie called Star Trek: Evolutions or is that something else included in the Box Set.

8. Shatner_Fan_Prime - July 21, 2009

Won’t buy these, but might Netflix ‘em just for the commentaries.

Re: 4 SciFiMetalGirl- “what’s a j-card?

From Wikipedia: A j-card is the paper card inserted in the plastic storage case of most pre-recorded audio cassette releases, as well as cassettes of bootleg or copied concerts of the jam band scene. The j-card usually contains an image of the album cover, a track listing, credits, and copyright information.

The j-card gets its name from being folded into the shape of the letter J (when viewed from the side) to fit inside the cassette’s case.

Today, custom made CD-R covers are often called J-cards. J-Card style covers were used in CD’s covers in the 90′s for single cases when bands release singles and are still used today.

i really hope this is true high def and not upconverted like the TOS set is

and yeah what’s Evolutions?

12. BaltarStar Galactica - July 21, 2009

I don’t know why that posted twice.

13. Seany-Wan - July 21, 2009

Anyone know if they will have the “Generations” teaser on these discs?

14. Alex - July 21, 2009

If the Star trek 09 is a two disk set [Star Trek (Two-Disc) (2009)] then why does Amazon say only one disk is included (Number of discs: 1)?

15. Pat Payne - July 21, 2009

I think in this context though the J-card means the wraparound card around the box itself, cotaining marketing stuff that can be safely removed without destroying the rest of the box.

16. Mathias - July 21, 2009

Star Trek Evolutions….the unreleased TNG send-off? THE crossover movie? :p

17. orgcaptainnemo - July 21, 2009

What is Star Trek evolutions?

18. James Rye - July 21, 2009

sweet mother of mercy!

$690,639

In what week 15! thats astonishing…

19. Scotty Mon - July 21, 2009

Star Trek Evolutions is the bonus disc for this set like Round Table discussion with Kirk in classic series set. There’s various featurettes.

20. FlyingWok - July 21, 2009

I was struck by the TNG box set artwork, and not in a good way. When compared to the TOS artwork, the TOS artwork looks optimistic as the Enterprise sails away from Earth into parts unknown, blazing new trails. On the other hand, the TNG box art shows the Enterprise-E seemingly fleeing from the massive, evil Borg Sphere.

There’s no sense of wonder, excitement, joy, or hope in the TNG artwork. There’s only fear and darkness as the Borg Sphere overshadows the Enterprise and blocks out the star field with its black mass. I suppose that’s a little indicative of the tone of the movies themselves, with TNG tending to be darker, and more subdued than the TOS entries.

Still, the TV TNG had hope and wonder in spades, and to me, that’s the truer sense of TNG that the box art fails to convey. Also, it strikes me as a little inappropriate to feature the Borg so prominently on the box art even though they only account for 25% of the TNG movies.

Oh well, I guess it’s what’s inside the box that matters :)

21. DC - July 21, 2009

They should fix the DNR problem with the original series movie Blu-Ray set. That’s the only thing keeping me from getting it…..well, that and money :P

22. Chisel - July 21, 2009

this packaging is truly nice.

23. jas_montreal - July 21, 2009

Gotta love the new TNG set art. I really like the black box art. Looks sleek. Fits well. Hopefully the HD transfers are up to par with the box art, lol.

24. Izbot - July 21, 2009

Taking some artist license with the relative sizes of the Ent-E and the Borg sphere, I see. Looks more like the Death Star by comparison.

“That’s no moon!”

27. star trackie - July 21, 2009

I’ll pass on these, though I may rent Generations in order to see the special tribute to Matt Jefferies, that inexplicably, landed on this movie rather than the TV season set.

28. Ryan O'Brien - July 21, 2009

Can’t wait! Tried watching “First Contact” on Universal HD but took out my DVD and compared by flipping back and forth to the same scene. UHD was only slighty, and I mean slightly better in terms of less grain but color depth was sacrificed.

These better look good. I think “Generations” is the best looking DVD I own and I am so jazzed about hearing ‘Jumping the Ravine’ in full Dolby True HD

29. Rudy M Alapag Jr - July 21, 2009

it’s better collecting the move picture collection in a box DVD set. instead of choosing from my DVD shelf to take one out and put it back. with this one, i get to not only watch the movies but watch and see the Star Trek Evolution. now what’s that about?its all in one box and i’m thinking handing my other star trek movies to my old cleaning crew-mate to him. i’m sure he doesn’t have any of the star trek at all. i like collecting shows or movies on a DVD box sets.

30. DATA476 (MATTHEW BURNS) - July 21, 2009

20. Flying Wok

I think your point about the Borg featuring so ‘prominently’ is a good point, especially when you say they only make up 1/4 of the TNG movies made.

However. In all honestly does anyone blame paramount for doing just that… financial AND popularity AND critical response for First Contact was miles ahead of Generations, Insurrection and Nemesis. Honestly that was TNG’s ulitmate peak in the movie world. I don’t think its hard for any one of us to trully argue why paramount chose the Borg as the basis for their artwork.

31. Mr. Delicious - July 21, 2009

Star Trek: Evolutions…aka “The Return”….dammit I knew Shatner would find a way!!

32. Chadwick - July 21, 2009

I love the box art and design for both the TOS and TNG movies. I am throughly enjoying my TOS blu-ray collection, can hardly wait for the TNG box set.

33. Dan - July 21, 2009

the image and sound transfers to these films better be spot on or Paramount won’t get a dime of my money!!!!!!

34. DavidJ - July 21, 2009

Eh, think I’ll skip these.

I just watched the regular DVDs on my Blueray player, and the up-conversion already made them look pretty damn good.

35. Ultimate Trekker - July 21, 2009

33- i had to skip the tos set because of lousy reviews on the picture. see amazon,the average rating is 2/5

36. Jeyl - July 21, 2009

“Featuring Captain Picard”

*SHOCK* No!

37. JIM - July 21, 2009

Hey!
Watch that unbelievable fan-made video from that german trek-site:

38. John from Cincinnati - July 21, 2009

Pretty sad. For such an enjoyable series, the only good movie was ‘First Contact’.

39. John from Cincinnati - July 21, 2009

Still waiting for the Director’s editions of The Motion Picture and The Wrath of Khan

40. captain_neill - July 21, 2009

looks awesome and fits in with the TOS box set design.

I wonder if the invidual covers be done same way as the TOS movies?

I have grown to like them, even though I wold have prefered the cinema posters but its the content which is important and like the TOS blu ray set this will be amazing.

41. Dan - July 21, 2009

#35 Ditto!
#39 Me too!

42. captain_neill - July 21, 2009

39 – me too

In regards to the theatrical cut of TMP, I like it that I have both cuts now

43. DavidJ - July 21, 2009

38

Agreed, but I gotta say, I still find the last two worth watching for the characters– especially now that it’s probably the last we’ll ever see of them.

Generations, on the other hand, is just awful in every way.

44. cleverclogs - July 21, 2009

So, I own all 10 films on DVD in a box set. I would love to buy all the movies on blu-ray, BUT, I’m not willing to shell out just for some DNR and so forth. Please please Paramount, rescan the real film, and give us directors cuts, PLEASE.

Make it so

45. Devon - July 21, 2009

#35 – TOS Movie Set? The rating is 3.5/5, at least on AmazonUS.

46. Delta Waves - July 21, 2009

Man oh man, when is the next TNG movie coming out? We really need another. Let it be direct-to-DVD, with maybe a limited theatrical release. Or better… an HBO mini-series! That would be fantastic!

47. Demode - July 21, 2009

I don’t know if the powers that be would let HBO or SCI-FI do a TNG mini-series. I would love it if they did to. I imagine that DVD sales would go through the roof! They should really look into this. The show still has a huge audience.

48. That Guy - July 21, 2009

Give me Titan!

I think TrekMovie already reported on that video. It was an intro to a convention made by Tobias Richter, who does special effects for Battlestar Galactica, Lost, and other TV shows. Prominent cameo in Trekkies also.

50. Enterprise - July 21, 2009

Already own these movies. Don’t really need to upgrade them. Only FC needs to be on Blue Ray.

51. darrksan - July 21, 2009

DO NOT GET THESE!
The Remastering has removed details of the film.
Shots have been smoothed out too much.
Allot of hull designs have been smoothed.
Also the Features are lame.

The past DVD Collector Editions 2-disk sets are way better.

52. Kent Butabi - July 21, 2009

I thought remastering brought out the detail?

54. Chris M - July 21, 2009

The artwork for both box sets look awesome!

Do we know when we get to see the cover for Star Trek (2009)? Assume it will be one of the movie posters or a version there of?

55. Montreal Paul - July 21, 2009

Looks good.. I may rent them on BluRay when I get one.. but as for buying them… I already have the original cast movies on VHS.. then I bought them on DVD.. Not gonna spend on a 3rd format. I actually have TMP on laser disc too!

56. Hat Rick - July 21, 2009

Lens flares! (Original Series box cover.) :)

57. Aaron - July 21, 2009

I really didn’t like Insurrection or Nemesis the first time I saw them, but watched them again recently, and was surprised to enjoy them a lot more this time around. Nemesis is still not amazing, but the big spaceship duel that takes up the last third of the movie has some pretty clever ideas in it. Insurrection is probably the best acted of the Next Generation movies. It seemed like the cast had been working together long enough to almost be relating to each other as themselves and not just the characters. It makes the characters seem more real, in a way that only happens when people have been acting alongside each other for quite a while. I felt the same way with Star Trek VI.

58. Spockish - July 21, 2009

The German film clip looks very good, Reminds me of a clip that came out a month before ST:TM promoing the Dallas FedCon. Oddly this film clip is promoing Fedxcon in Germany.

Let me take a big guess, the Dallas people know the Germans or the other way around.

And the DVD boxes look like standard Paramount type Star Trek DVD boxes. Or at lest the ones I’ve seen do resemble each other.

59. Matt Wright - July 21, 2009

53 — Old news, I convered the issues in my review here at TrekMovie when the TOS movie set came out.

We do not know how the TNG movies (most of which are quite a bit newer) were treated.

———————————————————–
More likely the same as TOS movies.
more likely the same DNR treatment.
I think the age of the films will not matter.
It is just so sad, I have been waiting for the trek films in HD for a long time and How I guess I will have to wait longer for the next set (We all know that there will be one).

61. Andy - July 22, 2009

The TOS sets weren’t up-converted. It says right on the box it’s TruHD

62. Jim Smith - July 22, 2009

@ 60 We don’t *know* until we see. Anything else is just surmise and speculation.

63. DJ Neelix - July 22, 2009

@11 Ultimate Trekker

TOS was shot on 35 mm film, so it’s rather down-converted if anything.

I like the box art for this one too. I’m pleased to see that they have chosen the original TNG movie font on this one, because I was afraid that they would “ST09 it” like they have done with previous packagings (including the TOS movie set – the TOS series font was used on all covers although it was never used on any of the film releases).

64. DJ Neelix - July 22, 2009

@61 Andy

Dolby TrueHD is referring to the audio format, nothing else.

65. Sulvac - July 22, 2009

#20. I was particularly struck by your comment that the TNG era films had a darker theme/quality/sense to them. I concur with this assessment. I find it fascinating anf ironic because the series itself was such a more optimistic series than it was portrayed in the 4 films. The characters were seldom in their familiar setting (I presume one could argue that the Enteprise E lends itself more to this than the D). However, as I was saying, the TNG episodes were much brighter and optimisitc, I think. It was with the DS9 that the series was darker. I realize this doesn’t really ahve much to do with the topic at hand, but that just really struck a chord with me.

66. Trekwebmaster - July 22, 2009

@ #53

YUCK, that one picture of Spock in The Undiscovered Country looked HIDEOUS in the Blu-Ray version. I wouldn’t watch that version. Give me a DVD version anyday! I would rather watch a DVD version instead of awefully DNR’ed versions of Blu-Ray.

Great comparison and contrast on AVS Forum. Is it really too difficult to ask for QUALITY these days? This makes me want to never get HD if DNR is so over-used…DNR used that way is hideous and it distorts the film as the director intended it to be. Getting rid of film grain is not a good thing. Even in Visual Effects you add a Gausian Blur (1% or less) to soften HD media so it will match well with other formats. Somebody is not paying attention and rushing these things out.

Thanks, but “No-Thanks,” I personally, would rather watch a DVD version than a sub-standard Blu-ray HD DNR-ized perverted version. And what’s with all of those cheap non-director’s cut versions? Can’t you put out the “best of the best” and show films the way the director intended? Sounds like someone is trying to “cash-in” on the HD and Blu-Ray movement with sub-standard versions.

I don’t like what I see, DNR looks like CRAP!

67. Jim Smith - July 22, 2009

Flitting between fandoms like I do I’m always amused by how some fans demand films as originally presented theatrically regardless of all other concerns (except maybe ones they’re not thought of) whereas other demand films in a manner other than that originally presented theatrically regardless of all other concerns. The fan hind-brain is interesting, na?

68. Zanpher - July 22, 2009

I agree. If they are not real hi definition blurays (aka 1080p), then they are fake, and your getting scammed.

Any news on that yet (for tng), and the (real) release of the TOS bluray movies?

69. Dr. Image - July 22, 2009

#66 I’m with you!
Who the hell is responsible for all that grain blurring?? I’ll take standard DVD any day if they’re going to be screwing these movies up!

70. Ken Nambu - July 22, 2009

Where’s Archer?

71. Matt Wright - July 22, 2009

Of course you guys bitching about the Blu-ray realize that aside from TWOK and TMP, the same masters that were used for the DVDs were used for the Blu-ray versions right? You can find snapshots of the same DNR, frozen grain, etc. from the previous DVDs as are in the Blu-ray versions.
The bigger travesty here then, is that Paramount seems to have used old masters that weren’t really up to par, and compensated by first blurring (DNR) and then resharpening them.

However, there is indeed a increase in detail and resolution, of course it also filtered like crazy, but there are noticeable differences for the better on the discs.

I of course don’t like that a bulk application of DNR was used, but for people with 50″ sets or smaller I doubt you’d notice it much if it all.

The TNG movies are indeed newer, and require much less “covering up” of their age.

I saw First Contact on an HD movie channel late last year and it looked quite good, so I can only think that the less compressed version on Blu-ray will look even better.

72. Jon B - July 23, 2009

The new box looks great. It compliments the original well. I can’t wait to see the films in HD. Granted, I might want to see the originals first (particularly to see how bad the DNR is).

Quick note: If you want to rent the Blu-Rays on Blockbuster.com, type the name of the box set. The films aren’t separated.

73. TonyD - July 24, 2009

#20 – “There’s no sense of wonder, excitement, joy, or hope in the TNG artwork”

That’s because there wasn’t much sense of wonder, excitement, joy or hope in the movies either. The TNG films were a bunch of misguided efforts from the getgo. Berman & Co. really abandoned the sense of optimism that the series tried to project in favor of low rent action and black-hat heavies.

The TNG movies tripped right out of the gate with Generations; it was such an uneven movie and the death of Kirk and destruction of the Enterprise were unoriginal stunt gags designed to get headlines instead of serve the plot. For me, they never recovered after that. All the TNG movies leave me cold and I won’t be going anywhere near that collection.

Just hope Paramount released Director’s Editions of TMP and TWOK and cleans up TUC in a future release.

74. captain_neill - July 24, 2009

I loved the TNG movies and cannot wait to get them onto bluray. I like all the movies.

I loved the new one, despite my gripes with the changes Abrams made, I found the new Trek lots of fun.

But I still loved the TNG movies, First Contact is one of my favourites along with Wrath of Khan and Undiscovered Country.

Agreed Nemesis was weak but it had moments I enjoyed
