"Star Trek: The Original Motion Picture 6-Movie Collection" contains all six big-screen adventures featuring the original series and spanning 1979 t 1991 on 4K Ultra HD. The collection includes the newly restored "Star Trek: The Motion Picture––The Director's Edition." The film successfully launched the Star Trek franchise beyond the original television series, despite having been rushed to theaters with incomplete special effects and forced editing choices.

In 2001, director Robert Wise revisited the film to refine the edit and enhance the visual effects. His updated vision was released on DVD in standard definition and embraced by fans but has never been available in higher definition until now. Meticulously assembled and restored by producer David C. Fein with post-production supervisor Mike Matessino, both of whom originally collaborated with Wise, the film has been prepared for presentation in 4K Ultra HD with Dolby Vision high dynamic range (HDR) and a new powerful and immersive Dolby Atmos soundtrack. Fein and Matessino assembled a team of visual effects experts, led by returning visual effects supervisor Daren R. Dochterman, and utilized the extensive resources in the Paramount Archives to recreate the effects not just in HD, but in Ultra HD. After more than six months of painstaking work, the updated movie looks and sounds better than ever while staying true to Wise’s original intention.

This comprehensive 15-disc collection includes the first six big-screen adventures featuring the original series crew in 4K Ultra HD with Dolby Vision and HDR-10. ("Star Trek: The Motion Picture—The Director’s Edition" also includes Dolby Atmos). Both "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier" and "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country" are making their 4K Ultra HD debuts.

The collection is comprised of:
