Kirk and McCoy are arrested and sent to the Klingon penal colony Rura Penthe, while Spock and the rest attempt to solve the mystery of who the true murderers are, in the style of a popular detective that Spock thinks he’s related to. Thrown in the cast mix this time around is the Vulcan Lieutenant Valeris (Kim Cattrall), who graduated top of her class at Starfleet Academy; Cattrall’s performance here is much better than that of Kirstie Alley or Robin Curtis. David Warner, seen in the last film in a bit part, returns as Gorkon, and the heavy is a Klingon general named Chang, played by Christopher Plummer, who is well-versed in English literature. At an uncomfortable dinner gathering, we are told “You have not experienced Shakespeare until you have read him in the original Klingon.” Star Trek 6 is full of misappropriations like this, as when Spock talks about an old Vulcan proverb: “Only Nixon can go to China.” Later on, he’ll make a statement implying than one of his ancestors is the fictional character of Sherlock Holmes, while General Chang, with his eye-patch and evocation of Fu-Manchu, spews out literary quotations from just about every Shakespeare play I can think of. “I’d give real money if he’s just shut up,” says McCoy… at this point I felt the same.

The idea that Star Trek VI is to be a metaphor for the end of the cold war/fall of Soviet Communism (with Klingons being the Russians, of course) kick-started by an intergalactic Chernobyl is a good one. But too often it seems like Meyer is trying to force square pegs into round holes; for example, the bigotry of everyone in the film seems overboard considering what we know of the characters. Scotty’s reference to “that Klingon bitch” and a crew member’s statement that “they all look alike” makes it appear that nobody learned anything in 300 years, surely a rebuke of Roddenberry’s intentions.

In the end, I welcome Star Trek 6 as a worthy conclusion for the original series characters, especially after the bad aftertaste of the previous sequel. Truth be told though, when all is said and done I wish that the Trek films had gone in a different direction – towards exploration of the unknown instead of showing more of the alien species (Klingons, especially) that we have known since Trek’s inception. Naturally, box office determines this more than anything, not me – so be it.

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (Remastered) [Blu-ray]
The original theatrical cut finally makes its appearance on Blu-Ray. This version is superior to Meyer’s subsequent “director’s cuts” for a few reasons – the main one being that many of the groan-inducing sequences from those versions are not to be found. Specifically:

  • “I bet that Klingon bitch killed her father”. – This conversation between Scotty, Spock, and Valeris is gone, and that’s just fine. We don’t need to see Scotty’s blatant racism (and cursing, which doesn’t really fit in the Star Trek universe) and we also don’t hear Spock talk about Klingons having no tear ducts, which doesn’t make a whole lot of sense anyway.
  • Colonel West. I like Rene Auberjonois as much as anyone, but his scenes are not only extraneous, they’re just, quite frankly, dumber than hell. First we see him giving a briefing about attacking the Klingons with the Klingon ambassador right outside the door, and with the Romulan ambassador still in the room! What the hell? Not to mention the lovable old paper flipcharts! Even in the 20th century we still had a little thing called PowerPoint. Does Meyer live in a cave? And then, the whole “unmasking” sequence at the end – straight from Scooby Doo – I don’t even want to talk about it.
  • The Spock/Valeris mind meld scene has been toyed with a few times. The original version from the theatrical release is the best. We don’t need to see flashbacks – we know who the conspirators are. Besides, keeping the camera on the Vulcans keeps us emotionally invested in the scene.
