#342 – Spotlight On: Star Trek VI – The Undiscovered Country
4 days ago
With The Final Frontier thankfully behind us, we set sail into The Undiscovered Country, a film with a plot ripped from the headlines of the time, and one which ended up paying off a character beat that was introduced three movies prior. But even more than that, Star Trek VI would be the final film to feature the entire original cast together onscreen, and be released twenty-five years after the show premiered, no less. It was a pretty big occasion, and after the dismal outing that was Part V, expectations were high for a proper swan song for the crew of the Enterprise.
Now, over twenty-five years later, we take a look back at the sixth entry in the Star Trek franchise to see if they were able to step over the stupidly low bar of Star Trek V and give Kirk and Co. a proper send off for the fans.
I’m your host and Captain, David Snider, and joining me as we bid farewell to the Enterprise-A are fellow crewmembers and Rura Penthe ex-cons Lt. Commander Chad Griner and Ensign Nick Goathoof.
Topics of discussion in this episode include the shocking revelation that William Shakespeare was actually a Klingon; Nick defects to the Klingon Empire after witnessing Spock’s brutal interrogation tactics; and finally, we learn that Leonard Nimoy will NOT stand for sexy shenanigans on the bridge of the Enterprise.

My #1 weekly staple
These guys keep me company at work. I've been listening for 3 years and we live a state apart but they would no doubt have refrigerator privileges at my house. David, Cody, Chad, and Ryan I don't always agree but I always love to hear your opinions on movies. My husband is a movie buff and this gives us some common ground. 10 years of marriage leaves you sparse on discussion topics. Thanks for the entertainment and interaction. I've enjoyed it so much I thought I'd take a moment to let everyone know. :-)

Clerks - Verified
These guys are certainly clerks with a capital "C" and they're just polished enough to let you enjoy that fact, without being annoyed by it. Great geek-out fan show for all things movies, TV and the kinds of interests we had because we weren't dating... And I mean that as a compliment.
