Star Trek – Greatest Battles was a VHS boxset – catalog number VHR 4732 – released by CIC Video in the UK on 16 November 1998. Comprised of four videos, indicated on the back of the individual slipcovers as Volumes One through Four, the set contained thirteen episodes, covering all four live-action series at the time. The set also contained the documentary Inside Star Trek - The Real Story, as well as a trailer for Star Trek: Insurrection. The box featured a flashing red LED on one side of the exterior packaging.

The set is not to be confused with the similar US VHS boxset released in 1997 – although the two do contain some of the same episodes, the US boxset omits the documentary and most of the episodes.

Dutch VOLUME EEN slipcover

There was also a release in Germany over a year later, as usual for that country dubbed in German. The German release omitted the Inside Star Trek – The Real Story documentary but otherwise had the same selection of episodes.

An earlier release in the Netherlands also took place with the same contents as the UK version, with the original English soundtracks, though subtitled in Dutch as was usual for that country.
