Much 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.
Star 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).
Offering the show the opportunity to use footage from the unaired pilot episode, the First Season’s only two-part episode featured rebellious Spock (Leonard Nimoy) standing trial for stealing the Enterprise and taking it to the forbidden planet of Talos IV and the return of the show’s first captain Christopher Pike (Sean Kenney/Jeffrey Hunter). “The Menagerie” is possibly the best example from the original series of the human side of the Vulcan science officer getting the best of him where his loyalty to his ship and captain comes into conflict with actions that, at least on the surface, are highly illogical.
