Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country Appreciation Giveaway

Every Star Trek movie appreciation this week will have an accompanying giveaway specific to that movie. A bit of history, or something tongue-in-cheek, or something random...whatever feels right.

For today’s Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country coverage we’re entreating you to read Hamlet as it was meant to be read: in the original Klingon. (Try to resist taunting your enemies with it as you pummel them from your invisible ship, though. That way leads to some serious comeuppance.) taH pagh taHbe’!

The Official Rules: To enter, post a comment in this post. Duplicate comments won’t be counted. One winner will be randomly selected by 3 PM EST on Friday, May 6th. Please check your email in the 24 hours after the giveaway has concluded; if we don’t hear back from a winner within 24 hours of being contacted, another winner will be chosen.

Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of and would fly itself apart to rescue the Enterprise crew at a moment’s notice.

The sight is dismal and our affairs from England come too late. The ears are senseless that should give us hearing, to tell him his commandment is fulfilled, that Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead.
