The first Star Trek Blu-rays will beam down in April and May

Our buddy at broke the news today that CBS and Paramount will release the first sets of its Star Trek franchise on Blu-ray in April and May, right around the May 8 release date of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek movie.

A box set of season one of the original TV series comes out April 28. Following on May 12 are collections of TOS films: Star Trek Original Motion Picture Collection (The Motion Picture through Star Trek VI) and the Star Trek Motion Picture Trilogy (II, III and IV). The latter set will also come out on DVD on May 12.

The season one box set will feature a Blu-ray transfer of the high-definition "remastered" episodes, which were previously released on DVD in November 2007, but the Blu-ray set will also allow you to view the episodes with their original 1960s visual effects.

The new movie sets feature high-definition remasters of the theatrical versions of the six films, along with new special features in HD. Click through to for more details.
