The Star Trek movies have been released on VHS in the UK several times, both individually and as part of boxed sets. Typically, with each new movie release, a boxset is produced to collect the entire run. The movies were released by CIC Video until the 1998 rereleases, and by Paramount Home Entertainment from the 1998 rereleases onward.

Release dates for some releases are not known. Dates in italics are approximations where no exact date is available.
