Star Trek is a two/three-disc "special/collector's edition" Blu-ray Disc release of Star Trek. The release includes a digital copy of the film for use on PCs and portable devices. The cover has so-called "augmented reality" features – the use of a webcam presents a three-dimensional holographic tour of the USS Enterprise.

Remarkably, this edition was released a year prior to the single-disc basic, "vanilla" release, which constituted a break with franchise tradition – predominantly employed for the DVD format – as this had until then the other way around for the previous Star Trek films, Star Trek: The Motion Picture excepted.

While still being marketed as region-restricted, this release was actuality confirmed, as one of the very first ones where Star Trek was concerned, to be already region-free before this had increasingly become commonplace for the Blu-ray format. [2](X)
