Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (The Director's Edition) is a special two-disc widescreen Director's Edition DVD of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

The release contains a slightly different cut of the film from the theatrical release and the previous DVD release. The run time is slightly longer, due to extra footage and different takes being inserted into scenes. Some of the footage comes from extra or alternate footage seen on ABC-TV broadcasts of the film; some of it added specifically for this release. At least one line of the extra footage ties directly to a scene from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, helping to make the continuity between the movies that much more cohesive.

Summary

Taken from the back cover
IT IS THE 23RD CENTURY
The Federation Starship USS Enterprise is on routine training maneuvers, and Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner) 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 (Ricardo Montalban) – brilliant renegade of 20th century Earth – has raided Space Station Regula One, stolen a top secret device called Project Genesis, wrested 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!
Co-starring Kirstie Alley (Cheers) in her stunning motion picture debut.
