It's the end of an era, as Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country comes under the watchful eye of The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour Spectacular. Glenn & Scott examine the final voyage of the collected Original Series cast, including its story's parallels to the end of the Cold War, the celebration of Star Trek's 25th anniversary from the perspective of its 50th, the crew's abruptly increased space-racism, the return of Nicholas Meyer, logic as the beginning of wisdom, things and supplies, and more adventures in budgetary restrictions. There's also no small amount of debate as to what exactly one should call Spock's violation of Valeris. (Warning: discussion of rape and torture from 38:31 to 53:40.)
