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.

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.

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
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 -

Just brilliant. Out of the original crews films,this is my second favourite after wrath of khan. Great transfer too.Published 2 days ago by R. G. Hancox
When peace is sought there are those who aspire to prevent it. Thus it becomes Star Ship CSI, 'Perry Mason', and then 'Escape for New York'.Published 4 months ago by ellison
