Star Trek Trilogy Blu-Ray


When we think of the big movie trilogys, we all think about  Star Wars, Back to the Future, and recently the Bourne films. What about Star Trek? With eleven films I can see why Star Trek may be overlooked. Starting with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and its two sequels we have a three-part story that branches over three films.  As a trilogy these films work well together. It just happens that the trilogy starts with part 2! Paramount has now released the trilogy as a three disc collectors boxed set on Blu-ray


The Story
Star Trek: The Wrath Of Khan found the return of Khan from the Original Series episode Space Seed. After the Reliant mistakenly lands on Ceti Alpha V, Khan and his followers take control of the Reliant seeking their revenge on Kirk. Khan also wants control of the terraforming Genesis device which would destroy a whole planet. The end of the film has Spock sacrificing himself to save the ship. The Search For Spock found the crew reuniting Spock with his katra, his Vulcan soul, which he passed onto McCoy before he died.  His body was placed on the Genesis Planet and reborn.  The trilogy ends with  Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.  An alien probe threatens to destroy Earth because there are no whales left to respond.  Kirk and crew travel back in time to 1986, and bring back two whales in time to save their planet. Each film deals with the logic that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one.

Special Features

This is a good way to introduce anybody to the world of Star Trek movies before J. J. Abrams. These three films were the best of the original cast films. This set is not for the hardcore fans. Trekkies will want all six films as a set.
