Star Trek – The Beginnings was a VHS collection released in the US featuring the pilot episodes of the first three live-action Star Trek series.

While the two tapes featuring the pilots of The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine were also available individually this was one of two releases in the US (the other being The Premiere Episodes set) to include the two Original Series pilots on a single tape (releases normally having one episode per tape).

The collection would be superseded by the release of Star Trek - The Premiere Episodes in 1996, which also came with "Caretaker", the pilot episode of Star Trek: Voyager.
