Star Trek: Discovery - Season One is a DVD release, featuring the complete first season of Star Trek: Discovery. The five-disc set was released in North America on 13 November 2018, with other international releases beginning on 19 November 2018. The release was issued as a standard plastic snapcase within its own cardboard foldout slipover cover.

This release was a year later reissued as an otherwise unaltered part of the Region 2-only DIS L'intégrale des saisons 1 & 2 collection, two years later followed as such by the DVD DIS Seasons 1-3 Collection.

Special features[]

Remarkably this release features the same amount of special features as its Blu-ray counterpart, constituting something of a break in release policies as the franchise had up to that point in time favored the Blu-ray format with the inclusion of more special features. Quite conceivably this had been an intentional franchise attempt to avoid the 2014 "The VAM controversy" that had followed the home media format releases of the first two alternate reality films.

The Region 2 and 4 releases had the special features split off on its own, 5th disc.

Background information[]

This particular release is one of the few individual Star Trek releases followed by the professional industry site The Numbers and for which domestic US home video format sales are known; The Numbers has reported that by November 2023 domestic sales had been realized of US$9.5 million for both this and its Blu-ray counterpart releases. [1] The for a brand-new Star Trek production seemingly disappointing sales could be explained by the sharply divided fan reception the series had engendered. However, there were by this time also generic societal trend issues at play, which had nothing to do with Star Trek, additionally explaining the diminishing sales of physical home video formats.
