Star Trek: Discovery - Season Three is a Blu-ray Disc release, featuring the complete third season of Star Trek: Discovery in 1080p high-definition. The set was released in North America on 19 July 2021, followed by an international release six months later.

A SteelBook® edition was near-concurrently released with the standard release(s).

While in a few cases still being marketed as region-restricted, the releases are in actuality region-free as this has by 2021 become standard practice for the Blu-ray format – explaining the unified contents for all regions.

Background information

  • As with the previous two releases, this release features the same amount of special features as its DVD 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 "second VAM controversy" that had followed in the wake of the home video format releases of the first two alternate reality films. However, It has yet to be ascertained whether or not the Blu-ray "15 Claps" Easter egg, located on its fourth disc, is also included on the DVD counterpart.
  • 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 March 2022 domestic sales had been realized of a mere US$2.4 million for both this and its DVD counterpart releases. [1] The for a Star Trek production seemingly disappointing sales could be explained by the sharply divided fan reception the series had originally engendered. However, there were by this time also generic societal trend issues at play, which had nothing to do with the fan's perception of Discovery, additionally explaining the continuing diminishing trend of physical home video format sales (see: main article), which for this particular release was actually only less than half of what the previous home video format sales had achieved and less than a third of the release preceding that one, despite the better reception of the series' third season.
