Just like all the films in this series, Paramount initially released a bare-bones edition when dvd's first came out, finally now this film gets the special edition treatment it deserves.
Although often paling in comparision with ST:2, Undiscovered Country is very underrated and easily one of the contenders for best in series. Carrying on some of the themes from Khan, such as old age and fear of change and combining them with an intelligent and effective plot. This is what the TNG crew should have had, a dignified exit, going out with an emotional bang, instead of a pyrotechnic whimper.
On the dvd there are multiple featurettes and you realise just what an arduous process it was to get this made. Nicholas Meyer confirms all the "rumours" that this film was based on "the wall coming down" and in the commentary actually talks a lot about politics and history which play a central theme. The final farewell is interesting and the tribute to DeForest Kelly is a touching finale.
All in all a fine package
