  • There is none of the drippy cuteness of ''Star Trek V.'' This is the best sort of adventure story, with good characters and excitement and lots of humor. [6 Dec. 1991, p.C1] show more

  • The film has a conviction and pulp-adventure integrity that cannot be underestimated. Director Nicholas Meyer keeps his camera hopping and the production has a dark, atmospheric sheen that persistently suggests mystery and danger. Not the best of the series, but a suitable farewell. [6 Dec. 1991] show more

  • Star Trek was never about gizmos, but about relationships - both among its crew members and with its audience. Star Trek VI more than upholds the tradition, making it a satisfying send-off for a mighty ship of foils. [6 Dec. 1991, p.1D] show more
