Star Trek: Short Treks I suppose is a decent bridge between seasons and if you’re a big fan of Star Trek: Discovery and its characters, these might be entertaining short episodes.

Star Trek Discover: Season Two I found to be an okay season I suppose but I’m not steeped in the history of Star Trek as a whole so any changes or updates didn’t bother me, although it’s pretty obvious to keep fans, they needed to include the old guard.

The Star Trek: Picard – Movie & TV Collection is not a release for fans of the franchise but those who have a low or at best moderate interest in the series but never purchased the original TNG movie collection.

Star Trek: Enterprise is considered the bastard child in the Trek universe and perhaps dead last compared with others like The Next Generation, Voyager and Deep Space 9. And while certainly there were some bad episodes, I did find as the seasons went on, I found them to be mostly entertaining.

Star Trek: The Animated Series is a fine release from Paramount and although the animation itself has all the hallmarks from the 1970s, the stories at least are well written and these serve nicely as unofficial fourth and fifth seasons of the original series, highlighted by its original cast.

50 Years of Star Trek isn’t a bad documentary but by the same token, nothing overly special outside of that it features the final interview with the late Leonard Nimoy and perhaps that alone is worth the price admission.

Star Trek Into Darkness is a sometimes fun summer blockbuster featuring a great cast, decent story (even with some of the lazier plot points) and amazing visual effects. It’s a nice addition to the Star Trek franchise though my hopes any problems with the plot, or lack of originality, is corrected with the upcoming Star Trek Beyond.

Star Trek (2009) is an incredibly fun and innovative way to reboot the long-running franchise. The story is interesting enough but what makes the movie excel is with the ensemble Abrams and company put together from Pine to Quinto to Urban, who often steals the show.

Star Trek: The Next Generation”: The Complete Series would make the perfect set… for the few who don’t already own the individual releases. While it is nice to have the series in one box, I actually kind of prefer the season sets as they are easier to handle, but as it is, and if you can get it at a good price, it might be worth picking up.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is not only the best film among the Trek franchise but one of the best science fiction movies below The Empire Strikes Back. The performances are all great but Ricardo Montalban easily steals the show. This new release finally includes The Director’s Cut which should’ve been with the original collection.

“Star Trek”: The Original Series is a cheap option for those non-Trekkies to get a few solid episodes from the three seasons the show aired. Of course, if you are a fan, you already have all of these, even in high-definition for the Blu-ray releases, you get nothing out of this “best of” collection.
