    To celebrate the 55th anniversary of the “Star Trek” franchise, Paramount Home Entertainment Sept. 7 will release a new Blu-ray Steelbook collection of the original series, as well as a boxed set of the first four “Trek” movies on 4K Ultra HD for the first time.

    The first episode of the original “Star Trek” series aired Sept. 8, 1966. The sci-fi adventure chronicled the adventures of the starship Enterprise in the 23rd Century and starred William Shatner as Capt. James T. Kirk, Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock, and DeForest Kelley as Dr. McCoy.

    CBS Home Entertainment is re-releasing the remastered Blu-ray editions of the show’s three seasons (1966-69) into collectible Steelbook packaging. The 20-disc Star Trek: The Original Series — The Complete Series set also includes nine hours of cast and crew interviews, commentaries, documentaries and archival materials.

    Meanwhile, Paramount is releasing the new Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection boxed set containing 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray versions of 1979’s Star Trek: The Motion Picture, 1982’s Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, 1984’s Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and 1986’s Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Newly remastered from original elements, each film is presented with Dolby Vision and HDR 10. The set also comes with a digital copy of each film, and a regular Blu-ray copy of each film with hours of previously released bonus content.

    Each of the original four “Star Trek” films will also be available individually on Blu-ray.

    How about they stop being cheap skates and release Voyager and DS9 on FRAKING BLURAY! I don't even care if it remains 4:3. I just want the series on bluray discs.
