Screenplay DennyMartin Flinn, Meyer, based on a story by Leonard Nimoy, Lawrence Konner, Mark Rosenthal. 109 mins. Colour.
   After the disaster of STAR TREK V: THE FINAL FRONTIER (1989), this film may have been a cynical decision to cash in on Star Trek's 25th anniversary and squeeze the last possible dollars out of the box-office. It is a watchable wrap-up of the series, or at least of the series as starring the original and now elderly cast. The story, a metaphor about Russian-US glasnost, deals with the dawn of more peaceful relations between humans and Klingons, with Kirk's dislike of making any such accommodation, and with an unholy alliance of right-wing factions on both sides whose purpose is to sabotage the peace process by assassinating leaders among the peacemakers. Plummer plays the Shakespeare-quoting villain, Chang; strangely the film's title is amistake; Shakespeare's phrase "the undiscovered country" refers not to the future, as the film has it, but to death. Like all but the first of its predecessors, this low-budget affair has the feel of a blown-up tv episode, but is enjoyably melodramatic.The novelization is The Undiscovered Country * (1992) by J.M. DILLARD.
