Star Trek IV: The Final Frontier is a two-disc 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray/Blu-ray Disc/Digital set, first released on 5 September 2022, featuring the 4K UHD release version of the Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. As is currently usual with UHD/Blu-ray double releases of older productions, all special features (excepting the audio commentaries and isolated music score tracks, which are present on the 4K UHD disc as well) are only included on the Blu-ray disc of the release. The two discs are mounted in a standard plastic snapcase, which itself was for the North American release issued within a matching softboard slipover sleeve. The other releases came without the sleeve.

The 4K UHD standalone version of the film was released on the occasion of the completion of the long awaited[1] in 4K HD 2160p resolution remastered version of the Star Trek: The Motion Picture  (The Director's Edition) in 2022, and was simultaneously released as part of the Star Trek: The Original Motion Picture 6-Movie Collection 4K UHD set. The remastering of both The Final Frontier and its The Undiscovered Country - Director's Cut followup was only completed in 2022, and it was only then that an individual downscaled standalone Blu-ray version could be released, whereupon it was decided that that was the opportune moment to concurrently release all original crew films in individual standalone 4K UHD versions as well.

As usual with these releases (geo-restricted to North America only, as the – former Blu-ray Region B[2] – European/Australasian releases do not have these) a redeemable code is included to download the film in 4K resolution digitally.

As is increasingly becoming commonplace, no DVD counterpart was issued for this particular release. Those dwindling number of DVD customers still wanting one, had to make do with the original Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (Special Edition) DVD release from 2003.

Background information[]

  • In contrast to films II, III and IV, an individual standalone version did get released this time around in Scandinavia, as that territory had not seen their own separate The Original Motion Picture 6-Movie Collection set release, contrary to the former three films which had been included in that territory's preceding Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection release.
  • The two Australasian (Australia and New Zealand) releases had dispensed with a separate Blu-ray disc in the set, despite the fact that the The Original Motion Picture 6-Movie Collection had not seen a separate release in that territory either. Still, as Blu-ray versions had all become region-free as well by this time, any import would do in the territory.


  1. Talks of a High Definition release of the Director's Edition had been floating around since April 2013, but various reasons conspired against such a release for nearly a decade. For further background information on this subject matter, see main article.
  2. The Region geo-restricting encoding had, for all intent and purposes, been dispensed with all together by the industry upon the advent of the UHD format, even though that policy change has never been made public officially. This incidentally, has also applied for the Blu-ray disc format, whose region encoding was since late 2009 silently, but gradually, abandoned as well – which in Star Trek's case started with the Blu-ray releases of TOS Season 2 and Star Trek: The Next Generation Motion Picture Collection [1](X) – only to pick up speed from the mid-2010s onward.
