Different Versions Edit

Well, Paramount or Bad Robot or both have made our lives difficult. Not only are there different versions in the United States - with 5 at last count, but there are country to country differences as well. I am not sure how accurate this article will be when all is said and done. For instance, the version in Australia will have the deleted scenes and bloopers and easter eggs, while a version in Germany will have most or all of the special features.

The release has been given a real thrashing by some critics due to this, such as by The Digital Bits. Anyone else think we should note this in the article? StalwartUK 13:56, August 30, 2013 (UTC)
The best way to list things (I suspect) would be to make a series of notes in the special features to show what appears on what release and where. -- sulfur (talk) 15:28, August 30, 2013 (UTC)

It's not the features that are going to be different. TrekCore has reported that there will be differences in the film aspect. For the domestic release, the scenes specifically shot for IMAX have been cropped to fit the rest of the film. However, in Germany, they may be getting the film with the IMAX scenes in full aspect. And, the decision to do this may be not be fully Paramount's fault. Word is that Bad Robot had a hand in this fiasco. Something about Star Trek being in JJ Abram's world, and Parmount not wanting to challenge Abrams.

Should the Target exclusive release get it's own page? Edit

The Target exclusive edition of Star Trek Into Darkness has a different number of discs and a different set of special features so why doesn't it have its own page? For the other Star Trek movies, we have a separate page for the original DVD, the Special Edition DVD, the 2010 DVD because each release has its own set of special features. 110.174.166.224 11:54, November 19, 2013 (UTC)

To my recollection, there were 4-5 "exclusive" editions. If we make one page, we need one for each. (Note: I'm on the fence on this, but leaning toward -- no, they should be all collected on one page at the moment) -- sulfur (talk) 12:57, November 19, 2013 (UTC)
I think Best Buy and Wal-mart each had their own too. I'm also leaning against separate pages for each one, though we certainly should mentioned the different features per establishment on this page. 31dot (talk) 18:37, November 19, 2013 (UTC)

For Star Trek Into Darkness, there's the standard DVD, the standard Blu-ray, the standard Blu-ray 3D, the Target exclusive Blu-ray and the Target exclusive Blu-ray 3D. I think they all need a separate page because they each have a different combination of special features (in the DVD's case, no features at all). I'm unsure about the Best Buy edition, since the exclusive special features are not on the disc itself (at least in the US version). I've never heard of a Wal-Mart edition. Is there any reason not to have a separate page for a unique Star Trek product? It's not like Memory Alpha is running out of space. 110.174.166.224 07:14, November 20, 2013 (UTC)

It's not separate products. It's the same product repackaged with different fluff for different retailers to boost sales. I think the Wal-mart special version came with a model of the Vengeance or something like that. 31dot (talk) 10:36, November 20, 2013 (UTC)

Is it considered the same product because all the different versions were released at the same time? 110.174.166.224 12:44, November 20, 2013 (UTC)

For the not-quite-but-almost exhaustive list, check out the link in the article about multiple retailer editions [1]. -- sulfur (talk) 12:55, November 20, 2013 (UTC)
