Star Trek: Fan Collective - Alternate Realities is a DVD collection released by Paramount Pictures. This set contains episodes from Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise. This is the third Fan Collective set to feature episodes from all five live-action Trek series, and the only one to feature episodes from the remastered Original Series.
The collection includes six of the eight mirror universe episodes (with the exceptions of "Resurrection" and "The Emperor's New Cloak" as four episodes from the five series was the limit), as well as episodes dealing with "parallel dimensions", "twisted realities", and "alternate lives". Featurettes about these episodes are included, along with some audio commentaries. The audio commentaries have been omitted from the Region 2 version of this release, however.
The initial shipments of the collection included a mail-in offer for a Diamond Select Toys figure of Captain Geordi La Forge, as he appeared in "Timeless".  Interestingly, this is the only "Fan Collective" set not to include the word "Fan" in the title.
