With Star Trek’s 50th anniversary in full swing, today we can report that STAR TREK: THE ANIMATED SERIES is getting a high-definition Blu-ray release later this year.

According to Digital Bits, the 22-episode, two-season animated series will see a 2016 holiday release. It’s still unclear whether new bonus material will be included. However, the prior 2006 DVD release included commentary tracks, text commentary, a “making of” documentary, a storyboard gallery and a history of the series.

Star Trek: The Animated Series aired from September 1973 through October 1974 on NBC.

In addition to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness will see a re-release in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format.

    So far this is the best thing to come from CBS or Paramount Home Entertainment this year. My hopes for this new set is that all the DVD extras are ported over, the episodes are remastered into HD (seems like a given) and they color correct the series. If they do that much, I’d happy! 😀
