CIC VideoEdit

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.

Planned releaseEdit


  1. This volume receives a special catalogue number, out of sync with the rest of the season one releases.
  2. Early proofs of the cover for this volume – showing a slightly different design – appeared in Star Trek Monthly issue 5. The cover carried the episode titles of "Parallax", and, inexplicably, "Intrepid, Part II".
  3. The last volume containing episodes broadcast in season one.
  4. 4.0 4.1 Contains episodes broadcast as part of season two.
  5. In the case of sets, the certificate is over the set as a whole (unless stated otherwise).
  6. This rating (provided by appears anomalous – all four pilot episodes individually are rated no higher than PG.
  7. One of three feature-length videos (along with "Best of Both Worlds" and "The Way of the Warrior") released to tie in with the premiere of Star Trek: First Contact.
