Episode ST.6: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, part 1

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

This is a breath of fresh air after the mess that was The Final Frontier, and we can be thankful that the powers-that-were made this movie, to say goodbye to the original cast in some sort of style, rather than leaving a bitter taste in the mouth. And we get to see Janice Rand at least get a speaking role to bookend Grace Lee Whitney's career in Star Trek too.

And Sulu finally gets his own command, too. You get a good sense of how kick-ass he'd be as a captain in this film - a tantalising glimpse at what could have been if a series had been made chronicling the exploits of Captain Sulu and USS Excelsior.
