Just in time for Star Trek Day, Paramount Home Entertainment has launched a special 4K ultra HD/Blu-ray bundle of the franchise’s first four movies to celebrate the 55th anniversary of the first-ever Trek episode on TV on Sept. 8, 1966.

The bundle, called “Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection, launched on Tuesday (Sept. 7) and contains ultra HD 4K and Blu-ray discs of “Star Trek: The Motion Picture,” “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” (both theatrical and director’s cut), “Star Trek III: The Search For Spock” and “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.”

Normally available for $90.99, you can get the new bundle for $77.48 — that’s 15% off — at Walmart, but we’re not sure how long this deal will last.

See what NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover sees in absolutely stunning 4K – CNET

Since landing on Feb. 18, the NASA Perseverance rover has had a chance to look around and scope out the surrounding landscape, which shows off some pretty typical Mars sights of dust, dirt and rocks. NASA/JPL-Caltech

The robot has barely moved from its landing spot, but it’s sending back a steady stream of visual data that’s freely available for anyone to play with.

The Mars 2020 Perseverance rover landed in Jezero Crater on the red planet less than two weeks ago, but the advanced robot has already sent back some of the most memorable motion pictures in history.

Cameras on the rover and the descent module that carried it through the Martian atmosphere documented the last few minutes of the long journey from Earth in a remarkable and spectacular way. With the dramatic landing out of the way, the far more chill but no less intriguing task of exploring the surface begins.

UK filmmaker Sean Doran has taken some of the first images taken by Perseverance from within Jezero Crater and processed them to create This is Mars, a short film that’s one of the most captivating 30-minute panning shots you’ll ever see.
