Blow out the candles for Star Trek's 5Oth anniversary party and prepare to plunk down a planet-sized wad of bills for this stellar new Star Trek mega-collection Blu-ray box set. I can tell you right now exactly what I'm asking my wealthy Aunt Laurie on Maui to get me for MY birthday this September when CBS and Paramount beam the beautiful 30-disc behemoth down to Earth. The Star Trek 50th Anniversary TV and Movie Collection is crammed with sparkling HD transfers of the entire run of the original Star Trek TV series, Star Trek: The Animated Series, all six Star Trek feature films starring the legacy Enterprise crew, dozens of hours of special features, interviews and documentaries and a brand new multi-part examination of the Star Trek phenomenon titled The Journey To The Silver Screen. Also packed into this sensational salute is the recently released director's cut of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Whew! I'm gonna need a bigger TV set to contain all that Trek awesomeness.
No exact word on price yet, but prepare for something slightly north of $200. Will you cough up the cash for this epic Star Trek 50th box set, or are you content with your boring old editions?
