    While it's nice that Paramount and CBS are re-releasing the Star Trek movies on DVD with new packaging, it's a sad thing that Paramount only released the Star Trek trilogy (ST: II, ST: III, ST: IV).

    Anyone know why Paramount isn't re-releasing ST: TMP or ST: V-X?

    I didn't view it as a re-releasing of the movies, just a package of the trilogy.

    I actually might pick it up since the only movie I have so far is 6 and these are the only others ones I want, so it will save a little shelf space for me to get this set.

    Are they selling these separately or just in a box?

    Just as a boxed set. It is rather disappointing. I was hoping to buy all of the movies in the new packaging. It's just sad that they released the first six movies in a boxed set for blu ray but not as a set for DVD.

    Just FYI:

    Based on what I've been reading, the "Wrath of Khan" transfer in that box has been remastered and looks noticeably better than the last DVD release. The other two movies look just like they did the last time they were released to DVD.

    The movies don't look the same, read the Digital Bits and DVDBeaver reviews. Khan benefitted from a restoration where as 3 and 4 have been remastered. Picture in all 3 movies is different.

    The question is will a new ST 1-6 boxset be available for us lowly DVD owners?

    It's not like they haven't been released multiple times on DVD before.

    I'm sure there will be an uber-set of 1-11.

    I just hope that Paramount gets off their duff and realize that there are a lot of consumers still buying the DVD format and release the Star Trek movies in DVD.
