Product Description

Amazon.ca

Spanning two decades and countless light years of interstellar adventure, Star Trek: The Motion Pictures Collection is a testament to the enduring goodwill of Gene Roddenberry's optimistic sci-fi concept. Long before Star Wars sparked an explosion of big-screen science fiction, Roddenberry had planned a second Star Trek TV series; the project fizzled, but its pilot script evolved into the first film in Paramount's most lucrative movie franchise. Despite its sluggish pace and bland "pajama" costuming, Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) offered a welcomed reunion of the "Classic Trek" cast, packed with Douglas Trumbull's still-dazzling special effects. Trekkers were even more ecstatic when The Wrath of Khan (1982) revived the spirit of the original series, even though director Nicholas Meyer was a Trek neophyte. With Leonard Nimoy directing, The Search for Spock (1984) began where Khan left off, with a th! rilling (albeit contrived) obligation to resurrect the formerly ill-fated Mr. Spock.

A box-office smash, Nimoy's The Voyage Home (1986) is the franchise's most accessible adventure--a high point offset by William Shatner's comparatively dreadful Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989). Meyer (and his penchant for quoting Shakespeare) returned for The Undiscovered Country (1991), a conspiracy thriller that put the series back on track, inspiring fans to invoke the "even number" rule in rating their franchise favorites. Generations (1994) gracefully passed the torch to TV's The Next Generation, bidding farewell to Captain Kirk with honor and integrity intact. Highlighted by the evolving humanity of Brent Spiner's android Lt. Cmdr. Data, First Contact (1996) explored Star Trek history with a logical (hint) surprise encounter, and Insurrection (1998) provided an adequate expansion of the successful NextGen series. Taken as a whole, these ten films demonstrate the consistent vitality of Roddenberry's original vision, stoking any Trekker's appetite for "ongoing missions" in Nemesis and beyond. --Jeff Shannon

I have always enjoyed the Star Trek movies since I was a kid, and I have now completed my collection of all the Star Trek movies. I at first started to get them individually, I first bought the S.E. of ST VI, then I moved onto getting ST II, but Best Buy didn't have any, but did have the box set with 1-10, 1-5 being in special edition, then 6-10 being the original releases.
Because I already own the sixth one in S.E. I wasn't as fazed, but it's ridiculus for them to release such a set like this, espeically when it's all the movies as they were released, just in a cardboard box.
Box sets like these make me sick, the best box set that was ever created was the Nightmare on Elm Street box set, and that's cause the movies all look the same and blend in with the box itself. This one unfortunely is not like this at all, in fact this is the third box set I've seen for the Star Trek movies: A Box set for the original cast, an incomplete collection of the new cast, and this; the complete, varied edition, box set. Frankly there is nothing special about the box set, you get no extra DVD with special features, no identical DVD cases for the movies, NOTHING. Your just paying for 5 of the special editions and 5 of the original DVD releases, plus the box itself.
So do yourself a favor, buy them individually(it's cheaper) or wait till they release a FINAL box set that is much in the respect to the Nightmare on Elm Street box set or the Alien Quadrilogy Set.

Why is it so hard for Paramount to release a box set containing only all of the Special Editions they have ready so far? Every Star Trek box set is like this -- several movies with Special Editions and several more movies that you'll end up having to repurchase seperately because they are not the Special Editions.
If you're looking to buy something for the Trekkie in your life, I strongly suggest looking up the Special Editions individually and buying them like that and avoid buying the movies that are not out in Special Edition yet -- save those for future gifts when they get released. Whatever extra you end up spending by doing it like this will ultimately be saved by not having to buy the regular edition now and then the Special Edition later.
Perhaps the casual Trek fan will enjoy this box set but even for the casual viewer, I don't see why you'd want the regular edition of some of these movies now when you can wait a few months and get a much better edition later.

Call me an ungrateful whiner if you want, but I'm REALLY gettin' tired of this DVD-double-dip B.S. (see my guide on the Dreaded DVD Double-Dip Ploy at http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/guides/guide-display/-/3CVFIEG84F2PF/ref=cm_aya_av.sylt_sylt/102-3198679-2483309 )! Why does Paramount put together a box set of Star Trek movies on DVD where the first five are in fully-loaded 2-disc Special Edition format, but the rest are the regular versions? To hose the Trekkie (yes, Trek-KIE!) Nation, that's why! They figure the uberfans will buy anything and everything with a Star Trek label slapped on it, no matter how shoddy and inferior the product is! And Paramount's doin' this while they're still putting together and releasing SE version platters of the other flicks in the future! It's enough to drive a Trekkie (yes, Trek-KIE!) to go postal at the next big convention! BTW if you ARE planning on going postal at the next TrekCon, do me a favor and fire a few phaser shots set on "slow and painful death" at Wil "Wuss-ley Crusher" Wheaton, please? Thanks much...
Anyway-- as you may've guessed after reading the previous paragraph, I strongly recommend that you NOT fall into the DVD double-dip trap-- do NOT buy this box set! Either purchase the Special Edition platters as they come out one by one (the first five have streeted as of this writing, with The Undiscovered Country coming out in late January 2004), or wait until they're all released and snap 'em up in one shot in what should finally be the LAST FREAKIN' TREK-FLICK BOX SET Paramount will put out! While it's true that you'll hafta wait a while for the latter option, I believe it'll be well worth the wait. After all, haven't you been hosed enough?
'Late
Post Script: I've heard rumors that Paramount will be re-releasing the original series in complete season box sets some time either in late 2004 or 2005. Does the hosing ever stop with these jerks?!

Look, they go to release all ten movies and they don't even bother to go and beef up the other five. That's reason why it gets 3 stars. I believe that Paramount could have done better with this release and well being the trekkie that I am it won't be bought until its fixed. But all in all hey at least they made an effort.

Look, the more recent movies come with a decent amount of material. Stop moaning over the undiscovered country. If you are a trekkie and it really matters to you, you know that ST VI was not that great. And if it really matters that much, throw away 6 or give it as a gift and buy the new version when it comes. This is offered to give buyers a chance to have all 10 movies in a uniform package, and all in one view. Get it for 13.99 when Amazon releases it (it's in the same style), and get a life outside of TV. Buy it from a zShop for 140.00 and save the 30 bucks. Then you can buy The Undiscovered Country for 14 and get the super saver shipping. You will have saved a big 16 bucks. Hey, thats enough to get you a "PENNY PINCHING, UNGRATEFUL TO THE PEOPLE WHO BROUGHT IT TO YOU AT ALL GEEK" T-Shirt. Big props to PARAMOUNT AND AMAZON for bringing these great sets.
