Fasten your seat belts and set your phasers to stun, for the miniature Sodis Trek review is ready to accelerate straight to warp 6! Yes – Spock is back, the needs of the few have outweighed the needs of the many, and the dominion of reckless actor-directors that lasted for three films has ended. The USS Enterprise-A is returning to its classical course – navigated by Meyer, the spiritual leader of the Starfleet. With its Shakespearean title, The Undiscovered Country is not only the final joint venture of the old TOS crew – Shatner, Nimoy, Nichols, Takei, etc. – but also an absolute, contemporary sci-fi allegory of the Soviet Union’s dissolution (the film premiered on December 6, 1991, and the Soviet Union ceased to exist exactly twenty days later).
