Paramount+ is the exclusive home of Star Trek TV in the USA, but since late 2022 the first 10 Star Trek feature films have only been available on HBO Max (now Max). Next month that will change.
Star Trek movies back home on Paramount in June
Paramount+ has announced that the 10 Star Trek movies that exited the streaming service last October will be back starting June 1. This includes the six movies featuring the cast of Star Trek: The Original Series, including both the theatrical and new 4K edition of the Directors’ Cut of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Also coming back are the four movies featuring the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
The full list arriving on June 1:
Star Trek: The Motion Picture
Star Trek: The Motion Picture – The Director’s Edition
Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan
Star Trek III: The Search For Spock
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
Star Trek Generations
Star Trek VIII: First Contact
Star Trek: Insurrection
Star Trek Nemesis
Max has also confirmed this same set of movies are exiting on May 31, making Paramount+ the exclusive home for the movies, at least in the short term. Paramount+ currently features the three Kelvin-verse movies (Star Trek 2009, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Star Trek Beyond). June will mark the first time all thirteen movies have been available on the service at the same time in over a year.
Paramount+ first had the full Trek movie collection back in 2021. Unlike how Paramount Global has made a point of holding the exclusive streaming rights of Star Trek television shows, both legacy and Paramount Plus originals, they have continued to licence the feature films to other streaming services. Throughout 2022 various Trek films would exit the service for months at a time until the mass move to HBO Max at the end of 2022. It isn’t known if there are any deals in place that will see any Star Trek movies exit Paramount+ again in the coming months or if the streaming service will finally become home to the full franchise, as Disney has done with the Star Wars movies and television series.
First 4 movies coming to Comet
The first 4 Star Trek movies will also be airing on Comet the broadcast and cable sci-fi channel in the USA. They are kicking things off on June 16 with a 32-hour Star Trek marathon of movies and documentaries. They are also giving away T-shirts and there is a costume contest.
