Product Description

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country was the VCD release of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. It was the first Star Trek release in this format, and the US, UK and German versions were released on the CD-i version of the format, meaning they would only play on a CD-i player, while the rest of Europe got the VCD standard release.

This in my opinion is the second best original series Star Trek film, after The Wrath of Khan, which was also directed and co-written by Nicholas Meyer. For the crew's last voyage together Meyer gives us a potent fable about racism and peace with a dash of murder mystery. The latter aspect isn't quite Agatha Christie, but it's engaging. Meyer's also written Sherlock Holmes novels; the detection displayed here shows a talent for the genre.
A Klingon moon explodes, destroying their home planet's ozone layer. As a result, Klingon Chancellor Gorkon (David Warner) approaches the Federation with an offer of peace, and Spock recommends that Kirk be sent to escort him to negotiations. Kirk, whose son was murdered by Klingons, isn't happy about this, but does his duty. After dining with Gorkon, his daughter (Rosanna DeSoto) and General Chang (Christopher Plummer), however, the Enterprise seemingly fires on Gorkon's ship, while two disguised officers beam aboard to kill survivors. An innocent Kirk is taken prisoner for this, giving Spock a short amount of time to uncover what happened.
Many references to Shakespeare's Hamlet are made. Though the connection's weaker than it was in Wrath of Khan, where Khan identified with Moby Dick's Ahab, each quote adds flavour to the screenplay. "The Undiscovered Country" is itself taken from Prince Hamlet's famous "to be or not to be" speech. In the play the undiscovered country was death; here it's peace. Beneath its shiny surface this is a thematically rich film. Alongside peace are issues of race, and how certain people fear change even when thwarting it causes slaughter.
Kim Cattrall plays Vulcan lieutenant Valeris, Spock's protege.

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

The Undiscovered Country is probably my second favourite Trek film after The Wrath Of Khan so I was eager to finally get this on DVD. But I was disappointed to find that this edition has excised the Colonel West subplot. As such, the movie feels incomplete.

I had some doubts about getting this film. It is probably my favourite of the motion pictures, narrowly beating Wrath of Khan. The reviews I read suggested the transfer to blu-ray was not too hot. Having seen it I think it's actually much better than Khan.

I first saw this film at home on an early Philips Disk Player (VCD?) and I thought it was good then, but on blu-ray it is stunning. Christopher Plummer is great as are the rest of the cast and watch out for Christian Slater's bizarre cameo and Kim Katrell's even stranger hair-do!

I'm buying these one by one - first II, now VI and soon IV -

I my opinion, one of the better Star Trek films. The quality of the DVD was good but the Blu-ray version is worth having.

Well what can I say. I already owned this on a region 1 DVD so decided to buy it on Amazon Instant. Directed by the same director as Wrath of Khan, this is a great movie. It has the odd moment that seems cheesy compared to the new Star Trek movies but like Wrath of Khan has a great 'Sub Hunt' vibe in the last act with the first half of the movie being more like a detective story with Spock as Sherlock Holmes. I also like the elements of 'behind the scenes' that we get in that we see them dealing with hangovers after a dinner party with the Klingon ambassador, we see private little moments of reflection in the crew cabins, the ships galley and even tables being set for dinner. Somehow it makes this trip on the USS Enterprise feel more grounded in reality (until the fighting starts!). My only criticism is that I noticed a cut to the original edit near the end and in this version the big reveal about a Starfleet character is gone, I assume due to the fact that it also showed blood pouring from his head, but really, I think it was unnecessary. great movie

The original enterprise crew finally bow out in this sixth movie which is also one of the best. After the previous film saw the series degenerating into farce, with a silly plot and a tired feel, this one has a sense of excitement and energy not seen since the superlative Wrath of Khan, ten years earlier. The regulars may look like they're on their last legs, with an overweight Shatner, a creaky Nimoy and a positively decrepit Kelley, but director Nicholas Myer injects the same sense of dynamism he brought to Wrath of Khan, the plot unfolds beautifully, the space battles are awesome, the acting is of a high calibre, the locations look great and the finale with the old enterprise crew flying off into the sunset couldn't be more fitting. It doesn't quite top Khan for sheer emotional impact, but it comes a good second. This is an excellent quality DVD too, with superb picture and great extra features. A must buy for any Trekkie or sci-fi fan.
