Product Description

Amazon.ca

Star Trek V left us nowhere to go but up, and with the return of Star Trek II director Nicholas Meyer, Star Trek VI restored the movie series to its classic blend of space opera, intelligent plotting, and engaging interaction of stalwart heroes and menacing villains. Borrowing its subtitle (and several lines of dialogue) from Shakespeare, the movie finds Admiral Kirk (William Shatner) and his fellow Enterprise crew members on a diplomatic mission to negotiate peace with the revered Klingon Chancellor Gorkon (David Warner). When the high-ranking Klingon and several officers are ruthlessly murdered, blame is placed on Kirk, whose subsequent investigation uncovers an assassination plot masterminded by the nefarious Klingon General Chang (Christopher Plummer) in an effort to disrupt a historic peace summit. As this political plot unfolds, Star Trek VI takes on a sharp-edged tone, with Kirk and Spock confronting their opposing views of diplomacy, and testing their bonds of loyalty when a Vulcan officer is revealed to be a traitor. With a dramatic depth befitting what was to be the final movie mission of the original Star Trek crew, this film took the veteran cast out in respectably high style. With the torch being passed to the crew of Star Trek: The Next Generation, only Kirk, Scotty, and Chekov would return, however briefly, in Star Trek: Generations. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars So....This is Goodbye...... Feb. 8 2004
Format:DVD
Following the disastrous critical and box office reception of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Paramount could have easily dropped the original cast in favor of The Next Generation. However, sentiment prevailed and Nicholas Meyer, who directed The Wrath of Khan (still the most popular film with most Trekkers) and who co-wrote The Voyage Home (still the highest grossing Trek film), was called in. He, along with Leonard Nimoy, fashioned a script which features most of what has made Trek endure through the years: a relevant story drawing on then current events (i.e., the lightning paced changes in the relationship between the United States and the then Soviet Union, which precipitated the end of the Cold War), with plenty of action, drama, humor (appropriate humor, not slapstick) and character development. Thus, the original cast would be able to exit the franchise with their heads held high.
The pacing of this film is much smoother than the earlier films (even Treks II & IV took too long to get moving) starting swiftly and accelerating to the pulse-pounding conclusion. The overall tone of the film is darker and edgier than any previous Trek (perhaps the filmmakers were taking a cue from 1989s Batman, which obliterated Star Trek V at the box office). The directing is fluid, with Meyer's camera swooping around the bridge (a notoriously difficult set to film in) and the other sets, and the editing is tight. Although the story primarily (and correctly) focuses the action on the triumvirate of Kirk, Spock & McCoy, the supporting cast is given plenty to do as well. Sulu, in particular--finally Captain of his own ship--has greater involvement.

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country has probably the best plot of all the Star Trek films. It was criticized at the time for seeming to copy the real life fall of the Soviet Union. However, the intention was only to link events of the end of the original series to Star Trek: The Next Generation. The film is full of suspense and the cast at some of their best performances. I first watched this movie just out of boredom, but was pleasantly surprised. It made this former Star Trek hater into an instant fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let Slip the Dogs of War ! Jan. 26 2007
Format:DVD
"The Undiscovered Country" was the sixth of the Star Trek movies and hit the movie screens in 1991. Like "The Wrath of Khan", this film was directed by Nicholas Meyer, and tells the story of the last mission undertaken by Captain Kirk and his crew.

The film opens in 2293, with the USS Excelsior returning home from a three-year mission charting gaseous anomalies in beta quadrant. Under the command of Captain Sulu, it monitors a devastating explosion on the Klingon moon, Praxis - one that literally tears the moon apart. As well as losing a key energy production facility, the Klingons are left with a more pressing problem : within fifty years, the Klingon homeworld would be uninhabitable due to the resulting damage to its atmosphere.

Several months later, Kirk and most of his senior staff are mysteriously called to a meeting with Starfleet's top brass. Three months away from retirement, they're a little confused as to why they have been summoned - and why Spock is, apparently, missing. The mystery is presently cleared up : they are briefed on what happened on Praxis and informed that, as a result, peace talks have opened between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. Further details are then provided by the Federation's Special Envoy : Spock. Compounding Kirk's surprise at Spock's role in proceedings is his dismay that Spock's plans for the Enterprise and her crew. Spock has volunteered them, without their knowledge, to escort Gorkon (the Klingon Chancellor) to Earth for a peace conference. Obviously Kirk - having spent his career fighting Klingons and still smarting from his son's death at Klingon hands - does not approve.

5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding -- the best star trek movie ever July 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Unlike Nemesis, which kind of left you scratching your head at how The Next Generation series of movies could go out in such an average (for TNG's high standards) bang, The Undiscovered Country closed out the original Star Trek series of movies with a BANG in 1991. This is easily the best ST movie ever, about how overmining of the Klingon moon causes a catastrophe on their planet making in uninhabitable and causing them to come to the Federation with talks of a truce. But a deep conspiracy unravels, in some ways predictable, in other ways not.......enough of my blabbering, not like you wanted to hear me tell you any more anyways, if you did I still won't spoil any more. Scenes of this movie were emulated in Next Generation movies (a certain space battle scene is emulated almost exactly in Generations, although nowhere near as well). Get it, watch it, and watch all the original Star Trek movies (except maybe the first one, unless you are INSANE for star trek). THe original movies are the best, and can be loved even if you aren't a Star Trek fan.
