Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (Blu-ray) is the Blu-ray Disc release of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and had made its debut as part of the earlier issued Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection and the near-concurrently released Star Trek: Motion Picture Trilogy. Reissued as an individual release with new cover art, it features the widescreen theatrical cut of the film, digitally remastered from the original negative.

A SteelBook® of Wrath of Khan was released in North American on May 17, 2015 at Best Buy stores. [1]

This film version also became included on the in 2016 issued Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (Director's Cut) Blu-ray release.

Background information[]

  • While the DVD counterpart still had to make do with the standard Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack, this Blu-ray release did feature the new, superior Dolby 7.1 TruHD soundtrack.
  • While Oceania had seen its own Region 4 DVD counterpart, it had to make do with UK imports for the Blu-ray release.
  • This particular 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 US$245,580 for both this and its DVD counterpart releases. While this might seem paltry at first sight, it must be realized that Star Trek fans, weary of what they call "double-dipping", prefer to buy such individual titles as part of collection releases such as in this case the earlier in May released Star Trek: Motion Picture Trilogy and Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection releases, which have realized substantially better domestic sales of US$4.3 and US$15 million respectively in a similar fashion. [2] This release therefore was as such not so much intended for the Star Trek fan, but rather for the casual, generic consumer.
