The first thing that struck me when i opened this set is its size. Its pretty large in the days of silm line box sets, about 9 inches by 9 inches (8 inches tall) and dominates my DVD collection. The box top lifts off to show the 11 dvd boxes side by side (the 11th box being the extras). No inserts in the boxes which is a shame.

It contains all star trek movies from 1-10 as described, they are the theatrical versions and not the extended versions. Each film has the language options of English / French / German (bar the extras disc, this is English only). All Discs have subtitles as well, including on the commentary, in the following languages;

Subtitle languages - English / English for hearing impaired / Danish / Dutch / Finnish / French / German / Norwegian / Swedish

Commentary Subtitle languages - English / German / French

In short, pretty box, good movies, slightly disapointing extras. If you are a fan who dosnt currently have the DVDs, its a good price to get them.

Having had the Star Trek movies on Video, Laserdisc, DVD and now Blu-ray I can state without fear that the Blu-ray discs are the best I have seen these movies, why does everyone go on about the Directors cut, the only movie that was a directors cut was the motion picture (and much improved it was too), Star trek 2 & 6 had extra scenes which to be honest are my preferred cuts but as the Director has stated in the recent edition of Star Trek magazine he refused to let the DVD releases be call Directors Cuts as they were not, they just has a few seconds of footage inserted that he lost the fight over at the editing stage prior to release.

Was I disappointed that Star Trek I, II & VI were not the extended editions, of course but even so sit back and savour Star Trek in glorious HD, you will not be sorry.

This is a nice as a set of Star Trek history.

The cardboard box slip cover is embossed really well. The text is all raised along with the ship and it's blue hue is slightly metallic, very nice facing out on a shelf. The main case itself is a large amaray style with a removable page turner disc holder. They all hold firm and this makes for really easy access. The films are the best I have seen them outside of the cinema experience. Each transfer is sympathetic to the original release. I wouldn't personally hope for anything more in a release of this size covering such a time period. The included booklet feels a little 'thrown in' but it takes up no space and is nice to have, it features similar artwork to the US release. I did like the look of the US box set presentation but the amaray design employed with this set feels much more truly next generation.

This is very much a particular edition of these films. As a result of this I felt that each film was a little soulless. All menus and interactions are in a standard Starfleet Insignia format. I would have liked to have seen something of a theme from each individual film. Each film is set to it's own musical score during the menu screen which does redress the issue a bit.

The physical discs are all grey for the first 6 films and they then adopt a star field pattern with individual colour tones for the last 4, splitting the timeline as it were. Interestingly Star Trek II is not labelled with the 'II' merely Star Trek: TWOK. (TSFS starts the numbering with 'III')

Each disc has a good deal of extra features pertaining to the film in question and each has a Libray Computer or PADD feature depending on the generation. This accesses film data and seems pretty comprehensive. It is difficult not to compare this set with the Alien Anthology which was physically poorly packaged but with great digital interaction, film features and presentation. This complete Star Trek release wins with both packaging and design but misses a trick with some fan service.

The extra two discs I have not watched but have noted that they also follow the generation split in their appearance this bookends the set well.

All in all a really well put together and a complete collection of original releases. Highly recommended.

I bought this set based on the majority of the reviews here that said the picture quality, especially over the original case films was much improved over the DVD versions, and having watched movies 1 - 4 so far I cannot argue with that assessment, they are indeed a lot sharper and much clearer. This will be immediately obvious in the very first scene of the very first movie with the three Klingon ships approaching the VEGER cloud, a massive difference. However there are some oddities in this first film, the first is when Kirk is being given a tour around the refitted Enterprise in the shuttle, as the shuttle pulls out in front of the gantry a part of the cloud on the planet below passes in front of the gantry! It catches your eye the first time making you uncertain what you saw. Next, when he is going under the saucer section and the screen switches to a view up to the underside there are some very large and obvious dirt marks on the camera, at least three that I counted. Finally, when Aylia is walking down into the VEGER pit it is really grainy, so it looks like this scene could not be made better. In the end none these things really matter to me, they are a minor and fleeting annoyance as the set is well worth having purely for the better quality.

The box is nice but way to overpowering in size for my liking so I have made a custom 10-DVD case to hold these films and put the box away in the attic saving space on the shelves and looking better (in my opinion) in the bargain. The cases as individual films though would look really nice together on a shelf if you, like me, do not want to use the box.

None of the films are the special or extended editions, not really a bad thing as the specials and extended versions did not really have a lot more in them, certainly not enough to make owning these a bad thing.

The four movies with forced stream subtitles work perfectly and are all automatically switched on, at least on my Panasonic. This is an important point as on the same machine one of the DVD's did not do this and I had to select it manually when I wanted to watch the film.

On my Onkyo AV Receiver I am getting something called Dolby EX 5.1 Surround (connected via HDMI) which I have never seen before. The sound is crisp and clear, bass is superb and not overpowering, a vast improvement over the original DVD's in every way.

This is a great release of the ten Star Trek films. If you are looking here you're probably familiar with the films, so I will just discuss the release itself.

The films have all been remastered, cleaned up and presented in the best possible quality. Having owned a few of the previous editions I can say that the picture quality is excellent. Especially on the older Kirk and Co films the difference is really noticeable, and they look almost as though they were filmed last year. The sound has also been fully cleaned up, and is presented in 5.1 surround. Again, the effort is noticeable and the result superb.

The ten films are each in normal wide DVD boxes, all gathered into a large, stylish cardboard cube. My only gripe is that the box is too big to fit in my DVD shelf, it would have been easy to make it a bit smaller.

There are a wealth of extras with each film, and a further 2 discs of extras. In the main these are reasonably interesting and add to the set, but I suspect some of them will be of interest to the more serious Trekkie.

In summary, for the low price being asked when I bought this, it's an excellent set. The films are in the best possible condition, and it's really worth replacing the previous editions with these.

I bought this to replace an old 1-7 VHS collection as having recently watched the two newer movies, I had an interest in seeing the older ones again. There is very little to mention in the packaging. It is a simple, multiple DVD single set, similar to the type used on many TV series box sets and the accompanying leaflet is thin and uninteresting. The extras on the DVDs are mostly rather dull - some commentaries, alternate language versions and a rather naff "Starfleet Academy Brief" which is basically an actress in Trek Uniform showing a few clips from the movie. Not worth watching more than once. Of more interest are the recent interviews where cast members go over their memories. There are some with Brent Spiner and Walter Koenig, but the best is one called The Summit (The Captain's Summit, somewhat erroneously, on the packaging) where Shatner, Nimoy, Stewart and Frakes sit around a table with host Whoopi Goldberg and chat. This is genuinely enjoyable, particularly for the amount of laughter going on and a very funny Leonard Nimoy putting William Shatner firmly in his place any time he gets a bit too pretentious. In summary, this is not worth having if you already have the movies on DVD, as it does not offer enough to differentiate it, but if you are replacing an old well worn set of videos, then this is a good value to get the Trek movies back into your collection.

OK Its Star Trek, its going to be great!! But the Box sets are NOT Special Editions. Ok you will moan at me saying who cares about 5 -10 minutes of extra filming or different versions etc. I say "good point" however, IF they have released the Box Sets before with everything, including Directors Cuts, why not just do the same with the Blu ray? I have noticed most films have been down graded for Blu ray release only to be up graded once you have bought the others. See my point? I still have my old Box Set on DVD from 2006 release with all the directors cuts, no point getting the Blue ray versions yet!!

Buy this for the Trekkie in your family! All 10 movies from Kirk Scotty & co's first big screen outing up to the last from Capt.Jean Luc & his crew in one beautiful big cube.
Husband & I bought this as a gift - for ourselves!
We had seen it at a far larger price elsewhere - so thanks Amazon!

Some have complained that this release is missing this and that, or that no-one would buy this because they should have bought some other edition. So what. I wanted the movies on Blu-ray. I didn't have them. Now I do and I am very happy with this set for the price that I paid - just over £7 per film.
