After the explosion of Praxis, one of the moons of Kronos, which destroyed almost all of the Klingons’ livelihoods, the conflict between the Federation and the Klingon Empire ended. It’s time for peace talks, but as it turns out, not everyone wants peace – some are satisfied with unceasing war.
Kirk and his loyal crew, already “five minutes retired,” are given the secret assignment to conduct the first, preparatory round of peace talks with the Chancellor of the Klingon Empire. But the unexpected happens–the Klingon ship is attacked, the Chancellor is killed, the negotiations are disrupted, and the Enterprise, specifically Captain Kirk and Dr. McCoy, are blamed for the atrocity.
While the top Federation officials ponder what to do, the Klingon court sentences them to imprisonment on a detached, ice-covered asteroid. But they don’t give up hope–because they are Starfleet officers, and because Kirk has a mission–he has long guessed that this is a plot to derail the peace talks, and gradually he begins to uncover it.
Meanwhile, the Enterprise, commanded by Spock, secretly flies to their rescue…

“Star Trek is already a legend and a masterpiece of science fiction. For a long time yet there will not be such a series that will overtake “Star Trek” in popularity and scale. All of America and half the world knows about the amazing and incredible adventures of the brave admiral, then captain, James T. Kirk and his crew. How many years we’ve been with them, pining, hating and loving, and all the while wondering what is out there where no man has set foot? Beginning in 1966, Star Trek became not just a cult series, but a real live reality, living a life of its own. Series after series, movie after movie, for 25 years we have watched our favorite characters – James Tiberius Kirk, Spock, Leonard “Bones” McCoy, Montgomery “Scotty” Scott, Uhura, Hikaru Sulu and Pavel Chekhov – and tried not to miss the chance to see their faces again. But everything comes to an end. And it came on December 6, 1991. No, Star Trek has not ceased to exist (it will exist even after I die), it’s just that we are saying goodbye to our TOS heroes. There will be no more Kirk, Spock, McCoy and others. It’s time for the younger generation, Enterprise is moving into new hands (the Next Generation series).
The latest film follows all the canons of “Star Trek.”
“Star Trek: Undiscovered Country” is the sixth film and the last for the TOS cast. But along with the cast, we say goodbye forever to the mastermind and creator of this great epic, Gene Roddenberry. He died unexpectedly 48 hours after the close screening on October 24, 1991. In his memory, this film is dedicated to him.
Captain Kirk and his crew retire, but before they do, they are given the simple task of conducting the first preparatory round of peace talks with the Chancellor of the Klingon Empire. A seemingly simple task, but a terrible thing happens – the Chancellor and the Klingon entourage are killed, and Kirk and McCoy are to blame. They are sent to a prison located in an asteroid. Kirk and McCoy realize that this is all a well-planned conspiracy play. The detective story begins…
The plot is very good, but the original story has reached us in a truncated form – affected by the reduction in funding. The prologue, a few scenes and dialogues not directly related to the plot were removed, and the number of set pieces was reduced. But this will not affect the movie viewing – everything is thought out to the smallest detail, there are no superfluous elements and details, everything is well planned. In addition, the film is embellished by good action dynamics – Kirk’s entanglements with the prisoners, the firing of the Klingon entourage, the scuffle in the Palace of Soviets. New special effects technology does a great job of embellishing the film, especially the antigravity and battles in space. And the camerawork is amazing – there are no aberrations, no flaws. The battle in space is shown perfectly – there are no words. There has never been a Star Trek like this before. Also well integrated new races – there is a huge number of them, pleasing to the eye. And of course our favorite Klingon language is honey for the ears.
The film grossed $97,000,000 worldwide on a budget of $30,000,000. This is a very good result, considering that this film was not planned to be made, but wanted to create a prequel to TOS. The creators wanted to tell the audience about the years of study of Captain Kirk. The script was ready and preparation of the scenery began. But suddenly Paramount Pictures makes a decision to stop working on the prequel and start shooting the sequel, because the majority of fans of the epic waited just for the continuation. The film itself was nominated for two Academy Awards – Best Effects and Best Makeup – and for a 1992 Hugo Award in the Best Dramatic Action category. The film was really beautiful and dramatic, it’s impossible to contain emotions at the last words of the wonderful crew:
Uhura: “We are being asked to return to the airlock immediately. We are being retired.”
Spock: “If I were human, I would say: “Go to hell.” If I WERE human.”
Chekov: “Course, Captain?”
Kirk: “To the second star on the right and forward till morning!”
