Seems like a good price for 3 of the better star trek films on Blu-Ray.

Titles comprise:

Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan: It is the 23rd century. The Federation Starship U.S.S. Enterprise is on routine training manoeuvres, and Admiral James T. Kirk seems resigned to the fact that this inspection may well be the last space mission of his career. But Khan is back...

Aided by his exiled band of genetic supermen, Khan - the brilliant renegade of 20th century Earth - has raided Space Station Regula One, stolen a top secret device called Project Genesis, wrestled control of another Federation starship, and now schemes to set a most deadly trap for his old enemy Kirk . . . with the threat of a universal Armageddon!

Star Trek: The Search For Spock: Admiral Kirk's defeat of Khan and the creation of the Genesis planet are empty victories. Spock is dead and McCoy is inexplicably being driven insane. Then a surprise visit from Sarek, Spock's father, provides a startling revelation: McCoy is harbouring Spock's living essence. With one friend alive and one not, but both in pain, Kirk attempts to help his friends by stealing the USS Enterprise and defying Starfleet's Genesis planet quarantine. But the Klingons, led by fearsome Battle Commander Kruge, have also learned of Genesis and race to meet Kirk in a deadly rendezvous...

Star Trek: The Voyage Home: William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and the rest of the U.S.S. Enterprise crew come down to earth in one of the most acclaimed and intriguing Star Trek adventures ever.

It's the 23rd century and a mysterious alien power is threatening Earth by evaporating the oceans and destroying the atmosphere. In a frantic attempt to save mankind, Kirk and his crew must time travel back to 1986 San Francisco, where they find a world of punk, pizza and exact-change buses that are as alien as anything they've ever encountered in the far reaches of the galaxy. A thrilling, action-packed mission for the Enterprise crew!

Always think this is a strange set but not a bad price all the same.

Is this this films 2, 3 and 4? Wierd

Like everyone said, makes little sense as a boxset thematically. But hot deal if you are collecting the films individually. Though they are probably just the theatrical release not the special editions (only released on dvd unless I am wrong?).

Think the theory is that these three in particular are connected and could be seen as a trilogy.

ii. Spock dies and cool cloaked bird of prey introduced
iii. Spock reborn a bit weird and cool cloaked bird of prey nicked from Klingons
iv. Spock gets his act together and cool cloaked bird of prey used to time travel back to save earth.

The rest are all stand alone (particularly the first which is way different!)

Well...that's the theory. Still strange though.

The events from 2 lead into 3 and the finale of 3 leads into 4.

Yeah, the sequelling is still quite loose. They are still more like separate films. Trouble is if you get this boxset then you still have to buy the other films separately.

I think this trilogy makes perfect sense. 2+3+4 can be watched as one continuation and they all follow on immediately from each other.

The end of 2 - Spock's death - is immediately resumed at the start of 3.
The end of 3 - Spock's rebirth - is immediately resumed at the start of 4. He is even wearing the same white robe and, with the enterprise gone, they now have the Klingon bird of prey which cloaks in order for their return to earth (1986).

I am no Trekkie but I can see the logic in this.

Why expired? It's still on play for sale

Not expired, I've just ordered it!:D
