Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
—not about a search for an unknown country—covers the rest of the story that began with Star Trek III, the attempts to make peace with the Klingon. Episode VI does not have the entertainment value of episodes IV and V, but establishes its value in carrying the story forward. The scenes of the court trials against Captain Kirk and Dr. McCoy are interesting. The ending of their trial has good, memorable scenes of snowy asteroids and Rura Penthe Mines. The storyline is solid. The conclusion good. The characters have been so firmly established that the character depth is there so audiences who appreciate the Star Trek stories will not be disappointed.

Maybe. It works as a lunch watch. The sequel film, Star Trek VII: Generations, introduces Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart).
