Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country

Sharon, Jack and I watched Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. After seeing Star Trek into Darkness in June, we started project to start a project to go back and see all of the other Star Trek films in order like we did with the James Bond films.

Released 1991 by Paramount Pictures, the film is the sixth installment based on the Star Trek science fiction franchise. The film marked the final appearance together of the original series' cast. It also marked the last appearance to date of Nichelle Nichols as Uhura in an actual Star Trek movie or TV episode, and the final appearance of DeForest Kelley, who died in 1999, as Dr. McCoy. Kim Cattrall plays Valeris, the Enterprise's new navigator and the first Vulcan to graduate at the top of her class at Starfleet Academy.

In the film, the destruction of the moon Praxis leads the Klingon Empire to pursue peace with their long-time adversary the Federation. The crew of the USS Enterprise must race against unseen conspirators with a militaristic agenda who want to disrupt any peace process.

I liked this film a lot more than the previous two films in the franchise. Sharon did not.
