You know, the further we get away from the summer of 2016, the more I realize that Star Trek Beyond was really one of the gems hidden in a summer full of garbage. Sure, it's got its problems—not least of which is the third Star Trek villain in a row whose agenda involves getting revenge on Starfleet—but it was so much fun and so damn enjoyable that none of its shortcomings really matter while you're watching it. The good news is that you can watch it over and over to your heart's content beginning November 1!
That's right, Star Trek Beyond hits Blu-ray on November 1 and will be available in a number of different versions and retailer exclusives. I'll definitely be snagging the 3D Blu-ray as the 3D was pretty fantastic on this one (and it's got the best cover art), but the bonus features are the same across all versions...
