"Khhhhaaaaaaannnnn!" Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) were bundled together and released by Paramount Home Entertainment as a two-disc double-feature Blu-ray on March 29, 2011.

Both films were previously issued on high-definition in various incarnations, most conspicuously as part of the Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection Blu-ray, which came out in 2009.

Khan and The Voyage Home — both of which were written by Nicholas Meyer, who also directed Khan (series star Leonard Nimoy helmed The Voyage Home) — are generally considered to be the finest two films amongst the franchise’s movies featuring the TV show’s original cast, including William Shatner. For those who’ve been holding out on purchasing the films, the Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan/Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home Blu-ray is a good set, especially as it carries a very reasonable list price of $24.99.

The two-film bundle also was issued on DVD for a list price of $14.98.

Here are the bonus features included on the Blu-ray and DVD, the majority of which were imported over from previous DVD and Blu-ray editions of the films:

  • commentary by Star Trek executive producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman
  • commentary by director Nicholas Meyer
  • commentary by Meyer and Star Trek: Enterprise producer Manny Coto
  • “Pavel Chekov’s Screen Moments” HD
