The Star Trek – 3 Movie Collection is a Blu-ray Disc triple pack, released in November 2016, collecting the single-disc Blu-ray releases of Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Star Trek Beyond.

Germany saw a "Three Movie Collection" variant release the following month as the repackaged limited six-disc "steelbook" edition, with the majority of the special features separated from the main films on separate discs. Confusingly, the release featured the cover art from the Star Trek: The Compendium Blu-ray released two years earlier, falsely suggesting that the complete contents for the first two films on that release were included on this one, which was not the case; only the contents of the regular (two-disc) releases were included. Nonetheless, in this the German and French six-disc releases were actually superior to the other three-disc "3 Movie Collection" releases, specifically where Star Trek was concerned, as these only featured the contents of the regular, "vanilla" single-disc releases without the extras for Star Trek.

A near identically packaged Region A release had preceded the German one on 17 November in South Korea, though it only contained the standard three-disc version, [1] whereas a French Region B six-disc version followed suit on 17 December.

While marketed as region-restricted, the releases are in actuality region-free as this has increasingly become commonplace for the Blu-ray format.

Background information

This 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 June 2020 domestic sales had been realized of US3,579,190 for both this and its DVD-counterpart releases. [2] A seemingly moderate result, it must be realized that most Star Trek fans already had acquired the films in one format or another, and that this release was primarily intended for new/late comers to the franchise and casual film collectors.
