Today is the twenty-fifth anniversary of the premiere of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. The last film for the entire original cast, it follows the adventures of the Enterprise-A as they try to broker peace with their archnemesis the Klingons, only to become embroiled in a conspiracy threatening to bring the galaxy to war. It was constructed as a hopeful metaphor for the end of the Cold War with the Klingons being the Soviet Union and the Federation as the United States. The film was a hit with fans and critics garnering positive feedback. It was the highest box office opening for the film series and went on to earn two Academy Award nominations and is the only Star Trek film to win the Saturn Award for Best Science Fiction Film. It was also the last film in the series seen by original creator Gene Roddenberry, who saw the completed cut before his death. The film features the talents of Nichelle Nichols in her finale performance as Uhura, George Takei as Hikaru Sulu who takes command of his own ship, David Warner in another Star Trek role as Klingon Chancellor Gorkon, and Michael Dorn as defense attorney Worf who is the grandfather of his The Next Generation role.
