Warp into one of the newer generations of Star Trek with this three-season edition of Discovery, which will catch you up to 2020. The franchise's emphasis on diversity expands to transgender and non-binary starring characters, and Discovery adds new ship elements such as tardigrades.
Star Trek is in a huge growth phase with a proliferation of new series. Any one of these Blu-Ray sets will help you get historical context with the new adventures, currently streaming on Paramount Plus, or with any of the more than dozen Star Trek movies of the franchise.
Star Trek: Discovery is ongoing and in its fourth season, while newer franchises such as Star Trek: Lower Decks and Star Trek: Picard already have full seasons out for you to enjoy.
The newest entry to the franchise, Star Trek: Prodigy, explores the world of Captain Kathryn Janeway as a follow to the highly-rated Star Trek: Voyager, which saw her crew stranded in deep space when something on their ship went awry.
Star Trek is standard orbit reference for a lot of real-life science, including medical tricorders and planetary sensors. Several astronauts are self-proclaimed Trekkies, and a few have been on the show. In fact, Captain James T. Kirk's real-life actor (William Shatner) made his own space voyage in 2021.
The show is also so widely known that it can be lampooned, to excellent effect. A new season of the Trek-inspired comedy The Orville should warp into view in 2022. Trekkies were also honored in episodes of Black Mirror and Saturday Night Live in recent years.
While money is obsolete in the latter Star Trek universe, for now these deals are the best way to get value for your time. Make sure to snag these Blu-Ray discounts before they beam away.
