This film was the peak for the original cast. The last time Star Trek would be this popular solely because of the OG cast.

The Undiscovered Country was quite a big hit as well. Fans turned out to see the send-off for that cast. The full audience in the theater I went to applauded during the cast signatures portion of the end credits.

Sure but it wasn't the same crossover hit. You said it yourself; fans turned out and the critics generally liked it but it didn't have the same appeal. TNG was also 5 years in, so that show's popularity boosted the Star Trek brand and had, for a time, eclipsed the original show's popularity. But The Voyage Home was the peak period for the original cast.

Fair enough.
