Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
An accident on the Klingon moon Praxis forces the reluctant Klingon Empire into a peace treaty with the Federation. Kirk, despite his mistrust of the Klingons after they murdered his son at Genesis, is forced to escort a Klingon cruiser carrying the Klingon Chancellor to Earth for the meetings. During the voyage the Klingon cruiser is attacked, and Kirk & McCoy are taken prisoner after the Chancellor is murdered by two Starfleet crewmen. Spock immediately begins an investigation, while Kirk & McCoy are sentenced to life on Rura Penthe - a deep-frozen asteroid. Spock, meanwhile, has discovered that a Klingon Bird of Prey - one that can fire when cloaked, and under the command of Kingon General Chang - is the ship responsible for firing on the Chancellor, and the 2 assassins came from the Enterprise. A rescue of Kirk & McCoy is successful, after which they discover a conspiracy among Starfleet, Klingon, and Romulan officials whose plan is to incite a full-blown war! The Enterprise & Excelsior - under the command of Hikaru Sulu - head for a deadly rendezvous with General Chang at the peace summit to prevent war from breaking out...but will they be too late?

More Movie Taglines:
- The battle for peace has begun
- The crew of the starship Enterprise fights not to win battles, but to end them forever.
- On the verge of peace. On the brink of war.
- [Dictating his personal log] Captain James T. Kirk: Captain's log, stardate 9522.6: I've never trusted Klingons, and I never will. I could never forgive them for the death of my boy. It seems to me our mission to escort the Chancellor of the Klingon High Council to a peace summit is problematic at best. Spock says this could be an historic occasion, and I'd like to believe him, but how on earth can history get past people like me?
[on whether to help the Klingons] Captain James T. Kirk: They're animals. Captain Spock: Jim, there is an historic opportunity here. Captain James T. Kirk: Don't believe them. Don't trust them. Captain Spock: They're dying. Captain James T. Kirk: Let them die! [pauses... Spock cocks his head in surprise. Kirk recoils and proceeds] Captain James T. Kirk: Has it occured to you that this crew is due to stand down in three months? We've done our bit for king and country! You should have trusted me.
Captain James T. Kirk: Bones, are you afraid of the future? Commander Leonard 'Bones' McCoy, M.D.: I believe that was the general idea that I was trying to convey. Captain James T. Kirk: I don't mean this future. Commander Leonard 'Bones' McCoy, M.D.: What is this, multiple choice?
General Chang: We need breathing room. Captain James T. Kirk: Earth, Hitler, 1938.
Captain Spock: Logic, logic, logic. Logic is the beginning of wisdom, Valeris, not the end.
- Portraits of American president Abraham Lincoln and Vulcan ambassador Sarek are visible in the officers' mess. The first is an idol of Kirk's (from the TV episode The Savage Curtain) and the second is Spock's father.
The subtitle, "The Undiscovered Country," comes from Hamlet's famous "To be or not to be" soliloquy, as do many of General Chang's quotes. Two of the more obscure lines Chang speaks during the final battle between the Klingons and the Enterprise are "Our revels now have ended..." from "The Tempest" and "The game's afoot" from "Henry V."
The welcome speech that Kirk, McCoy, and the others receive on arriving on Rura Penthe is an homage to the speech made by Colonel Saito to the British POW's in The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957).
The name of the prison planet, Rura Penthe, is a reference to 20000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954). It is the name of the slave labor camp that inspired Captain Nemo's rage against society and that was the location of his death.
Spock (Leonard Nimoy) tells the crew, "An ancestor of mine maintained that if you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the solution." The "ancestor" Spock quotes is Sherlock Holmes, another fictional character well-versed in logic. Nimoy and co-star Christopher Plummer have both played Holmes on stage and screen. Also, director Nicholas Meyer is the author of several Sherlock Holmes novels, including "The Seven Percent Solution," considered by many to be the best Sherlock Holmes story not written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
