Star Trek: The Next Generation Motion Picture CollectionMuch like Star Trek: The Original Motion Picture 50th Anniversary Collection, the Star Trek: The Next Generation Motion Picture 50th Anniversary Collection is a basic re-issue of the 2009 Blu-ray release collecting all four Star Trek: The Next Generation feature films in a single collection. As with the other release, it’s a bit of a mixed bag with some, but certainly not all, of the extras available in the movies’ individual home video releases.

The highlight of the collection is Star Trek: First Contact (the second, and by far the best, of the Next Gen movies). Also included are the problematic Star Trek: Generations (which struggles to unite the original and Next Generation franchises), the disappointing Star Trek: Nemesis (which wastes the Romulans only big screen appearance), and the almost completely forgettable Star Trek: Insurrection.

Star Wars Rebels - The Honorable Ones

“The Honorable Ones” is a completely unexpected episode that fleshes out one of show’s important reccurring characters. The episode begins with the crew of the Ghost walking into a trap on Geonosis set by Agent Kallus (David Oyelowo). Separated from the rest of the battle, Kallus and Zeb (Steve Blum) continue their fight aboard a damaged escape pod which crash lands the pair on the snowy moon of Bahryn. Here the enemies will be forced to work together to survive the harsh climate and the indigenous Bonzami while hoping to be rescued before they succumb to either the cold or the creatures.

Star Trek: The Original Motion Picture CollectionStar Trek: The Original Motion Picture 50th Anniversary Collection is a basic repackaging of the 2009 release which collected the original six Star Trek movies together in a single set on Blu-ray. As with most collections of this type, some of the basic extras with each movie are included but not as many as you will find each individual release. It’s likely you already own the movies you want from this set, but if not the $50 price for all six movies isn’t too shabby (and currently you can actually find the set heavily discounted at about 60% of that price online).

The real trouble here is you are only getting three good movies for this price (Wrath of Khan, Voyage Home, and Undiscovered Country), two rather mediocre ones (Star Trek: The Motion Picture and Search for Spock), and one even die-hard Star Trek fans don’t like talking about (Final Frontier).

[Paramount, $49.99]
