Star Trek: Voyager Season 5 was released on VHS in the UK in a two-episode-per-tape format by CIC Video in 1999. Season 5 was the final season to be released by CIC - the company dissolved at the end of the year, and distribution of Star Trek and other Paramount releases was brought under the control of Paramount Home Entertainment.

Sleeve change

The sleeve underwent a major redesign for this season - the episode band was moved up towards the middle, and a character montage of (from left to right) Tuvok, The Doctor, Janeway, Seven of Nine and Chakotay placed beneath it.
