(written from a Production point of view)
The Star Trek films have been released on VHS in the UK several times, both individually and as part of boxed sets. Typically, with each new film release, a boxset was produced to collect the entire run. The films were released by CIC Video up until the 1998 rereleases, and by Paramount Home Entertainment thereafter.
