TrekMovie concludes its week-long anniversary celebration of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country with a look at the film from a fan’s perspective. Much like in his previous remembrance of The Voyage Home, Steve Vivona not only takes a look at the film, but also bring us back to 1991, when fans across the world were able to cap off the franchise’s 25th anniversary with a rousing farewell to the original cast.

On November 26, 1986 Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home debuted on movie screens across the United States. The film’s lighthearted tone and environmental message struck a chord with moviegoers, and became the first Star Trek film to have crossover appeal with mainstream audiences who normally wouldn’t be interested in the adventures of the Enterprise crew. The movie often referred to as “the one with the whales” continues to charm audiences today, and we wanted to mark its 30th anniversary with a remembrance not only of the film, but of the time it was made in. We hope you enjoy it.
