Star Trek Generations Blu-ray cover Region B

Region B cover

Star Trek Generations is the Blu-ray Disc release of Star Trek Generations. This release features the theatrical cut of the film. As well as the extras originally featured on the Star Trek Generations (Special Edition) DVD, excepting the text commentary by Mike and Denise Okuda, the release also includes new special features in high definition.

Region B saw a 2016 reissue in the Steelbook variant, which was initially intended to be a part of the 10 Movie Star Trek Collector's Set - Limited Edition Steelbook Collection. Nonetheless, all ten films saw almost concurrent individual European general, non-limited retail releases in the UK, Germany, Italy, and France, the Steelbooks typically packaged in transparent plastic slipcases with the usual Blu-ray band imprinted at the top. In all cases the text imprints on the back of the Steelbooks were language adapted.

While in some cases still being marketed as region-restricted, of the 2016 reissues is known that these are in actuality region-free as this has increasingly become commonplace for the Blu-ray format.

Improved 2023 reissue[]

In April 2023 the Star Trek: The Next Generation 4-Movie Collection box set was released, which contained the in 4K UHD 2160p resolution re-remastered four Next Generation Star Trek films which were also issued separately. Additionally, to 1080p downscaled Blu-ray versions of each film were concurrently issued as well. The Generations reissue was essentially the technically improved upgrade version of the otherwise identical 2009 original release, featuring the same below-mentioned special features. The Region A release though, had an additional digital download version available as well, obtainable by a to North American geo-restricted redeemable code, which was not included on the Region B release.

Contrary to the 2009 editions though, no DVD counterparts were released for the reissue editions, as has increasingly become commonplace.

Background information[]

The Blu-ray debuted originally in the 22 September 2009 Star Trek: The Next Generation Motion Picture Collection set along with the other three Next Generation Star Trek films. For unknown reasons, three of the them, Star Trek: First Contact excepted, had to await their own individual releases for nearly four years in North America. Enigmatically though, all of them did see an individual 2009 release in Japan, whereas Region B already saw their releases in the Spring of 2010.
