Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country 
Original crew's swan song
3.5/4 stars

The final film to star the original STAR TREK cast is also one of the series' best, ranking up with II, III, and IV. Nicholas Meyer, who helmed WRATH OF KHAN, returns to the director's chair, and ILM returns to the visual effects department. Best of all, the entire cast give their best performances ever (in particular, Christopher Plummer's portrayal as a devious Klingon general is a treat). The surprisingly intelligent and strong plot involves an uneasy attempt at peacemaking between the Starfleet Federation and the Klingons. Things get ugly when a Klingon ambassador's ship is attacked, leading to a horrifying murder. Kirk and Dr. McCoy are unjustly framed, so it's up to the rest of the crew to prove their innocence and uncover the real killers before another person is killed. What's fascinating about this "trek" is the very real racial tension displayed in not only the Klingons, but even in the protagonists (Kirk has obvious reservations about trusting Klingons), providing a very "human" depth to the story. The picture builds masterfully to its surprise climax capped off by a very satisfying ending. As a "last hurrah" for Kirk and company, STAR TREK VI: THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY is fantastic entertainment all around.
