Blu-ray Disc (BD or Blu-ray) is a high-definition home entertainment format on the standard 120mm optical discs. Launched in 2006, it competed briefly, but fiercely from 2006 to 2008 with HD DVD before becoming the standardized high-definition home entertainment format.

Star Trek releases on Blu-ray commenced in April 2009 with season one of The Original Series. Star Trek: The Next Generation is currently being released, with Star Trek: Enterprise to follow in 2013. CBS have commented that a Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Blu-ray release is a possibility.
