Star Trek: Voyager has been released on VHS in several countries since its launch in 1995.

UK releasesEdit

The first five seasons of Voyager were released by CIC Video, with covers designed by Feref; the last two by Paramount Home Entertainment.

German/Dutch releasesEdit

Releases in these two markets were largely identical to those of the UK and like in that country were distributed by CIC Video and later Paramount Home Entertainment with two episode tapes and some seasons being available in boxed sets. The two countries also got both volumes of The Seven of Nine Collection.

US releasesEdit

Voyager ended up being the last of the Star Trek series to see release in the US by Paramount Home Entertainment. A full release of the series commenced on 4 April 2000. In all sixty tapes, each with a single episode going up to the third season episode "Darkling" were eventually released. Episodes were released and numbered in the order they were produced.

Prior to this a few episodes of the series were released in box sets with episodes from other series. The pilot "Caretaker" was included on the Star Trek - The Captains Collection and the Star Trek - The Premiere Episodes box sets in 1996, "Maneuvers" was issued on the Star Trek - The Greatest Battles set and "Time and Again" was released on the Star Trek - Time Travel Collection set, both in 1997.

From 1998 Columbia House started releasing their Star Trek: Voyager - The Collector's Edition tapes roughly every few weeks, each tape typically containing two episodes. These releases got further than the Paramount releases, getting at least as far as the beginning of the seventh season in 2003.

Paramount's releases were:

VHS • LaserDisc • DVD
