#161: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country

Up this week: The last TOS Trek film! Highlights: We discuss the TOS crew’s hard-earned open-mindedness and Kirk’s well-chosen words of diplomacy, note Valeris’ magic pole, wonder if Klingons really expect so little of their freighter captains, ponder the difficulty of getting old and accepting change, suggest that maybe Col. West’s presentation might’ve carried more weight if it wasn’t on a large pad, and generally get a huge kick out of the ultimate handoff from TOS — traveling into the undiscovered country and playing such an important role in creating the TNG-forward universe.
