Star Trek Generations is the VHS release of Star Trek Generations.

US release Edit

Star Trek Generations was released to VHS for rental outlets in the summer of 1995. However, a retail release did not follow until 16 February 1996. This first retail release featured a lenticular holographic cover using the film's theatrical poster. Later reissues omitted the lenticular cover. The general VHS release featured a 30th anniversary trailer with Kate Mulgrew, along with a trailer for the Patrick Stewart-narrated From Here to Infinity.

Star Trek Generations has been released on VHS in the UK several times, both individually and as part of boxed sets, since 1995. The film was released by CIC Video up until 1998, and by Paramount Home Entertainment thereafter.

The film was first made available for sale as part of the Star Trek - 30th Anniversary Movies Box Set in November 1995, with the standalone release following a month later.
