In Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, the Enterprise leads a battle for peace in a spectacular Stark Trek adventure. After years at war, the Federation and the Klingon empire prepare for a peace summit. But the prospect of intergalactic glasnost with sworn enemies is an alarming one to Admiral Kirk (William Shatner). When a Klingon ship is attacked and the Enterprise is held accountable, the dogs of war are unleashed again, as both worlds brace for what may by their final, deadly encounter. Directed by Nicholas Meyer, this topical action-adventure soars with warp-speed excitement.
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
Just nice to watch one of the old Star Trek movies. Last movie with the original cast crew, I think. Sulu commands Excelsior which comes to the rescue! Read morePublished 3 days ago by Pat in Phoenix
Good but probably more fun for die hard star Trekkers, it was a bit disappointing to see the much loved crew aged.Published 3 days ago by anipilot

Does this version of the DVD suffer from the footage being presented in Standard format with black bars to make it wide screen? The one i have now is like this and on a widescreen TV the result is a windowboxed movie and overall a poor quality video.
