Factory, podcast co-host – The Arkham Sessions) and Erik Amaya (Editor-in-Chief of ComicCon.com, the Comics on TV Columnist at Rotten Tomatoes, co-host, Tread Perilously) to participate in a thorough discussion regarding Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991) in light of the film’s 30th anniversary, with topics including the film’s Cold War roots, the prejudices depicted within the Federation, the seemingly universal fear of change depicted in the film, and more.
