Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast

Standard Orbit 147: Beyond Blu-Ray

Star Trek Beyond on Home Video.

November 1, 2016 marked the release of Star Trek Beyond on home video, and there have been several versions made available to consumers. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Norman C. Lao returns to help us break down what makes each release unique and pros, cons, and differences between them!

Has a replica of the USS Franklin been on your wishlist? Do you like the way SteelBooks display on your shelf? Is behind-the-scenes material more your area of interest? These are all important factors to consider before deciding which version of Star Trek Beyond to get on Blu-ray. Target, Amazon, or Best Buy...where should you make your purchase? Ultimately that's for you to decide but we do our best to educate you into making the most informed decision!
