Dates in italics are approximations based on release frequency, where no exact date is available. UK products are normally released on a Monday.

CIC Video

From the makers of The Next Generation; Beyond the Final Frontier

CIC Video included stardates on its covers for each episode. These appeared even when no stardate was given in the episode. The back cover carried a quote from one of the episodes contained on the video.

The volume numbering system changed from this season onward. Whereas in the past, volume numbers had simply advanced consecutively from one season to another, releases from now on would be numbered by season and volume. Therefore, the first volume of season three was designated volume 3.1, and so on. The video sleeve displays this number prominently on the front cover.
