Star Trek: The Original Motion Picture Collection (BLU-RAY)

The first Star Trek movie is the only Star Trek film where phasers are never fired.

Star Trek, although coming first, always seemed like the poor man's Star Wars to me.  After seeing the newest Star Trek movie, my interest in the franchise piqued a bit.  And, by piquing, I mean that there was slight interest because I never had even a little before.

The Wrath of Khan looks incredible, remastered in complete high definition, you would guess it was from the early 90s as opposed to 1982.  The other movies, kind of take a backward stumble in picture quality while sound stays pretty steady throughout.

Star Trek The Captains' Summit: Roundtable interviews with past cast members William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Patrick Stewart, Jonahtan Frakes and Whoopi Goldberg

The most interesting of bonus features is the bonus disc, Star Trek The Captains' Summit, but it's a shame that they were only able to gather 5 previous cast members (I know, I know, the four big captains), but it would have been more engrossing had their been a couple roundtables also featuring supporting cast.  The quality, considering the age of these films, is actually pretty impressive, especially in sound with the, arguably, best of the franchise, The Wrath of Khan, standing tall above the crowd.  Also not included? Star Trek Generations, which also featured Spock and Kirk, but including that would have messed up the order.
