WIN the Star Trek Films on Blu-Ray!


Thanks to Paramount Home Entertainment, Moviehole has 5 copies of “Star Trek : The Original Motion Picture Collection” to Giveaway on Blu-Ray! (Australian Readers Only)

This phenomenal new set (valued at $200 each) includes six discs, featuring the first six “Star Trek” films, which have been digitally remastered in high definition (”Star Trek II: The Wrath” of Khan has been fully restored) with new 7.1 Dolby TrueHD audio and over 14 hours of special features, including 2 ½ hours of all-new material.

The collection also includes a bonus disc entitled “Star Trek: The Captains’ Summit” that features a 70-minute exclusive round table discussion hosted by Whoopi Goldberg in which William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Patrick Stewart and Jonathan Frakes share candid moments and intimate details about life on the set.

If you’ve never seen the films that preceded J.J Abrams’ fantastically epic ”Star Trek” (2009) prequel, this is the way to go. I guarantee you’ll have a hell of a time with this 6-movie set – all the big-screen voyages (bar ”Star Trek: Generations” – which, though it did feature Captain Kirk, was essentially a ‘Next Generation’ movie) of Kirk and crew are here, and there’s not a dull moment to be had in any of them!

Umpteen years after it was canceled as a series, ”Star Trek” was given a new lease of life as a film franchise – and it’s all thanks to ”Star Wars”. With Twentieth Century Fox/George Lucas’s space saga raking up big bucks at the box office, Paramount quickly scrambled to see if there was anything they had that ‘like it’. Much to the surprise of the cast – Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner et al – and crew – the show was created by the late Gene Roddenberry – Paramount (I’d say ‘Quickly’, but that’s not exactly the case – they were actually a little unsure about Star Trek being their new science-fiction film series) called to say they’d all be required back on, er, deck.

Each film comes packed with extras. There are commentaries, deleted scenes, storyboards, vintage promo material, trailers, and numerous featurettes. You’ll have seen a few of the extras on the previously-released discs, but there’s a few new additions too – like, for instance, a featurette on the many drafts they went through of The Motion Picture which is super interesting; some newly-recorded commentaries (Nick Meyer and Manny Coto get together for ”Khan”, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, writers of the latest ”Trek” movie, provide the track for ”The Voyage Home”), and quite a few featurettes (some tributes to the series’ fallen stars) that haven’t been seen before.
