Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country Scene 5

Scene 5

Scene 5

  • Everyone is sitting down for dinner, enjoying a strange blue liquid. Romulan ale, folks. The Klingons seem perplexed by the purpose of silverware, which is hilarious.
  • Gorkon offers a toast to the "undiscovered country"—the future. Spock rightfully identifies this as a reference to Shakespeare. The Klingons seem to really dig the Bard.
  • McCoy offers a toast to Gorkon. This seems to be going well.
  • Then Chang speaks. He asks Kirk if the Federation is willing to "give up Starfleet."
  • There's a debate between Spock and Kirk over the nature of Starfleet, but Chang interrupts, saying that in space "all warriors are cold warriors." That's a T-shirt right there.
  • Things take a turn for a worse. The Klingons says that the peace treaty will lead to "the annihilation of [their] culture" in favor of human-centrism.
  • Kirk then compares the Klingons to Hitler. It's good to see that some things haven't changed in the future, we guess…
  • After dinner, the crewmembers say goodbye to their chummy guests. Gorkon tells Kirk quietly that their generation will have the hardest time adjusting to this new world.
  • Chang quotes Shakespeare a few more times before saying goodbye. What a weirdo.
  • Everyone looks exhausted. Yeesh. What a disaster.
