Star Trek: The Compendium is a Blu-ray Disc collection, containing re-releases of Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness. Released in North America in September 2014, the collection gathers together all of the special edition material for both Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness, previously broken up between various exclusive editions, as well as new material. It also includes UltraViolet digital copies of the films. No releases of the set are currently planned outside of North America.

Star Trek Into Darkness is featured in its IMAX form, with selected scenes in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio.

The release was secured after discussions between The Digital Bits' Bill Hunt and Paramount Home Entertainment, following extensive criticism of the division's approach to the bonus features on the Into Darkness Blu-ray release. [1] Prior to the release of the collection, on 19 August 2014, Paramount, implicitly conceding their "wrongdoings" – though having never explicitly admitted to such, unveiled a $5 rebate offer for US residents only, who had previously purchased Star Trek or Into Darkness on Blu-ray. [2]

When the collection was officially announced it was listed as a Region A release, though it turned out to actually be region-free, most likely to accommodate overseas customers, as this release has never been officially distributed in those markets. [3]
