Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country released in 1991, was the last Star Trek film to feature the original television series (TOS) cast. William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, and the rest, made this their swan song to the series in what is considered one of the best Star Trek films.
The movie made references to contemporary political issues of the time, such as Chernobyl disaster, and Soviet Union, while still having a sense of humor, science, and adventure that Star Trek is known for.
This scene in the meeting room at Starfleet Headquarters captures the tension that the Federation had with the Klingon Empire. It’s a classic scene that should be studied by film students, and film lovers. The future of the Klingon Empire is doubt, their race to become refugees in space. This echoes the the Syrian refugees crisis of today among other things.
Kirk kind of comes off like Donald Trump saying, ‘They’re animals!’ Of course that statement is based on the many negative experiences he’s had with Klingons in the past.
Truly Star Trek VI is a true classic worth multiple viewings!
