Star Trek: The Next Generation movies have been remastered in 4k with Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby TrueHD 7.1 audio for release on Ultra HD Blu-ray from Paramount Home Media. The 4-Movie Collection (Street Date: April 4, 2023) includes copies of each film on 2160p (4k) Blu-ray, 1080p (2k) Blu-ray and Digital 4k UHD (via redeemable codes exp. 4/4/2025).

Star Trek: The Next Generation 4-Movie Collection includes Star Trek: Generations (1994), Star Trek: First Contact (1996), and Star Trek: Insurrection (1998), and Star Trek: Nemesis (2002), which are also available in single-movie editions simultaneously with the 4-movie collection.


Paramount does a nice job of restoring the TNG movies in 4k Ultra HD. The sharpness levels and depth of color is better than we’ve ever seen before in home media. Dolby Vision and HDR10 create a more realistic color rendering, allowing up to 10-bits of color. There is a gain Dolby Vision as the spec is dynamic from scene to scene, wheras HDR10 is one setting throughout the entire video stream. The increased depth adds detail in space and in the shadow areas of these dramatically-lit films.

The opening scene of Star Trek VII: Generations (the first of the TNG movies) starts with a bottle of champagne floating through space to commerorate the maiden voyage of the USS Enterprise-B. The sharpness of the bottle is so much better than previous HD presentations. And, the interior of the Enterprise’s bridge is rendered with rich color and sharp edges so clear that on larger sceens you can see the fabric stitching of the crew’s uniforms.

The video bitrate in each film averaged around 40Mbps – 50Mbps, and at times in the 50Mbps – 60Mbps range depending on the scene. These bitrates are not quite as high as some 4k discs, but nevertheless 2-3 times better than streaming bitrates.


Audio has been upgraded to Dolby TrueHD 7.1 from the Dolby TrueHD 5.1 tracks on previous 2k Blu-rays (new 1080p Blu-rays releasing April 4, 2023 will have Dolby TrueHD 7.1). This is a 2-channel improvement for surround-sound systems that adds a more immersive, albiet not Atmos, audio experience.

Subtitles are provided in English, English SDH, and French.

Bonus Material

There is bonus material included on the 4k disc, but only text and audio commentary. The rest of the legacy bonus material is provided on the Blu-ray Disc. The 4-Movie Collection includes hours of content such as the 4-part featurette “Brent Spiner: Data and Beyond,” “The Next Generation,” “Trek Roundtables,” “Library Computer,” “Industrial Magic,” and more. The extras are, of course, provided in HD quality.


The four movies are packaged in a 10-disc capacity plastic case (the 2 disc holders on the front and back stay empty). There is an insert with 4 different digital codes to redeem with either Apple iTunes or Vudu. The plastic case is housed in a cardboard slipcover with a spec on the back.
