Star Trek VI - The Undiscovered Country

Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country is the sixth Star Trek movie. It was made in 1991 and contained lots of Klingon dialogues.


Captain Kirk and Dr McCoy get accused for murdering the Klingon Chancellor Gorkon. In a show trial, they are sentenced to death, but the sentence is transmuted by the Klingon judge. They are sentenced to "spend the rest of their natural lives" on the penal asteroid Rura Penthe. They are brought to the prison inside the asteroid right after the trial.

2. Kronos One under attack

These phrases were shouted by several crewmembers during the attack on the klingon vessel Kronos One. In few cases, one can identify the speaker[citation needed]. Some of them were not subtitled, but could be understood.
