Product Description

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

3.0 out of 5 stars Good But Not Good Enough Nov. 2 2003
Format:DVD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars This had so much potential, it's just sad. June 18 2004
By Ryguy
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ugh April 23 2004
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars For every silver lining, there's a dark cloud May 19 2004
Format:DVD
Well, for all you all or nothing at all people reviewing previously, I have to wonder; what's so special about a special edition? I like the little trivia nuggets & easter eggs, I like the extra features, but in my experience a special edition or directors cut usually changes the movie in such as a way that it loses its magic. What I see on the screen I like to see on my telly; most often adding footage and scenes just ruins the rythm & doesn't improve the story. Now, including the scenes in the bonus features, or having some way for the scenes to be re-integrated if you so choose when you play the film, that'd be swell!
These are movies, they're some of them special editions, director's editions, some are not. Take ST:TMP for instance. a quarter hour, 900 extra seconds of voyaging through V'ger. Some folks called this first Trek film "Star Trek: The Motionless Picture". Can you imagine what an extra 12 minutes without dialogue does? 780 seconds of actors pretending to be awed, overwhelmed, impressed? Even for an old school original issue Trekkie (YES! That's the *proper* definition for the fans who got the first space shuttle named Enterprise!) it's too much to bear. It's like an intermission. Rent a special edition before you buy it, lest you be saddled with a disappointing re-rendering of the film you enjoyed.

1.0 out of 5 stars The amazon review is wrong...AGAIN.... Dec 5 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is a very dreadful packaged set of movies from Paramount (Patheic) Pictures, with the review sounded like he was paied a lot of money to say possitive things about mostly disapointing films. Do not buy this rip-off of a DVD movie boxed set and boycott Paramount for ruining Star Trek.
