Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country

Corrected entry: The shapeshifting woman at the dilithium mines where Kirk and McCoy are sent changes her shape often to a big monster, small child, etc., but her voice always remains the same. However, when she takes Kirk's shape she also takes Kirk's voice.

Correction: We also see that she can change her voice before then anyway. When she is leading them through the mine, just before changing into the little girl, she calls out something to the klingon guards in a voice that is most obviously different from her regular voice. She probably didn't change her voice when speaking with Kirk and McCoy simply because they would not have recognized her otherwise, but she was playing with them when she changed into Kirk.

Continuity mistake: After the bird of prey first fires on Enterprise, Kirk is thrown right out of his chair to his left and lands on the floor. The camera pans around the bridge briefly, seeing the rest of the crew staggering and holding onto things. In the very next shot Kirk is back in his chair shouting "back off, back off" and the crew back in their positions as if nothing has happened.

Trivia: The Klingon who defends Kirk and McCoy at the trial is Michael Dorn, the actor who plays Worf in The Next Generation. The Klingon makeup is also identical, even though it is supposed to be a different character. (The makeup is actually more subdued than the makeup for TNG [flatter] but it looks similar because he is actually playing one of Lieutenant Worf's ancestors.)

Question: Is it my imagination, or does the opening theme sound similar to the classical piece "The Planets - Mars" by Holst?

Chosen answer: There are certain similarities, yes. Whether any specific aspects of the piece were deliberately incorporated into the film's opening theme is an open question, but the overall feel is undoubtedly very similar.
