CIC Video included stardates on its covers for each episode. These appeared even when no stardate was given in the episode.

Although each cover of the two-episode tapes in this season have the titles of its two episodes arranged horizontally, with one title next to the other, some consideration went into arranging the titles vertically, as evidenced by a preliminary VHS cover printed in Star Trek Monthly issue 5.

The first season release was unusual in that it contained the four episodes originally filmed for the season that were held back to become part of season two. It therefore represents the original production order of the season, rather than the season as broadcast, as well as reflecting the running order used for UK broadcasts of the season.
