US Releases etc. Edit

I've noticed that there isn't much info on the US releases so I've been digging around to see what I can find out.

US release schedule (hopefully I'm not missing anything):

  • TOS: Few select episode releases in the 80s, Two complete releases (I think) in the late 80s/90s, one episode per tape at retail (like the Betamax release, not done) and a "Collector's Edition" with two episodes per tape (page already exists). Retail re-release later in the 90s.
  • TAS: Already done.
  • TNG: Two releases, one episode per tape at retail and a "Collector's Edition" from Columbia House with two episodes per tape.
  • DS9: Same as TNG.
  • VOY: As with TNG/DS9 there were two releases, retail with one episode per tape (these appear to only go up to the "Scorpion" two parter) and a "Collectors Edition" with two episodes per tape of which I am not sure how far it got. Last series to come out on VHS in the US.
  • ENT: Never got released on VHS in the US.
  • Movies: Up to Nemesis released a few months after the movies hit cinemas, two versions of TMP (threatrical and "Special Longer Version") and TVH (second being the "Director's Series" release). Only re-release I'm aware of (not counting boxsets) is around the time of the 25th anniversary in 1991 for the first five movies. If this page is to be believed the Directors Edition of TMP got a VHS release in the US.

Pages/stuff to add:

  • Movies: One page per film, two to cover both releases of TVH and three for each release of TMP. I'm not sure though where this would leave the current Movies UK VHS page though.
  • Series: Add to the existing UK pages and rename those to say just "TNG Season 1 VHS"? Better ideas welcome. Seperate pages for the "Collector's Edition" releases. StalwartUK 16:57, February 21, 2013 (UTC)
Once upon a time this was on a list of things I intended to do, and I had started reformatting the pages to match the DVD format. There were some problems though, and it fell by the wayside. I figured this info might be useful. - Archduk3 17:11, February 21, 2013 (UTC)
