Hello and welcome to my user page.
I first got into Star Trek in the early-mid 90's with Star Trek: The Next Generation when it was being shown on Sky One. Subsequently I saw most of Star Trek: Voyager and the all of Star Trek: Enterprise as they were shown for the first time in the UK, also on Sky One. I didn't have much experience with the other series prior to getting them on DVD during 2006-2007.
I first came across the site around 2004 during the final season of Enterprise and started making minor contributions anonymously. It wasn't until 2007 when I decided to create this account I became more active.
Currently working on the US VHS release pages.
Released c. 2004 by Thakral Home Entertainment. First 9 films were dubbed in Mandarin Chinese, no subtitles. There were two versions of Nemesis, one dubbed in Chinese and another which was the original English version. The release of The Motion Picture may have been of the Director's Edition cut, at least the cover uses that logo anyway.
Deltamac released VCDs starting from 2001. One of three areas to release Into Darkness.
Reliance Home Video & Games/BIG Home Video. Two versions of Star Trek and Into Darkness have been released. One being the English original and another with Hindi dubbing. Around 2009 (though their site also suggests 2008) they also released Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (English only). Apparently previously in 2002 Paramount signed a deal with another company, Excel to release VCDs in India. They did release some in 2003 but only some of the films and even then they were out of sequence.
The first 10 films were released c. 2002.
HVN Entertainment. They released the first six films in 2002. Insurrection (and presumably the rest of the TNG films) followed around 2003. Last release was of Star Trek in 2009. The earlier release of The Star Trek Collection appears to be by another company with no connection to HVN.
Magnavision Home Video released at the very least Star Trek. They possibly released the previous films too though those may have been by another company.
At least two companies have had the rights the release VCDs in Taiwan. The first one was King's Multimedia who released the first 9 films around the early 2000s. By the time Nemesis was released in 2003 the rights have appeared to have passed on to another company, Catalyst Logic. Along with Nemesis they also re-released at least the first six films. Like later in Mainland China the second release of TMP uses the same artwork as the Director's Edition DVD though unlike the China release it leaves out the "Director's Edition" part of the title.
MVD were the licenee for thise area. At least Insurrection, Nemesis and Star Trek have been released here. One of three areas to release Into Darkness.
The first 11 films were released on the format here. Unlike other areas Paramount Home Entertainment themselves appear to have released these.
