Lawrence Konner (born 14 September 1949; age 66) was credited as co-writer of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, along with Leonard Nimoy and Mark Rosenthal. He and Rosenthal have been writing partners since 1985. Nimoy later alleges, in his book I Am Spock, that Konner and Rosenthal actually had nothing to do with the finished script, but the studio gave them credit for political reasons.

Konner began as a television writer, writing for the shows Little House on the Prairie and Remington Steele. He and Rosenthal first worked together on the motion picture The Legend of Billie Jean (with Dean Stockwell). This was followed by such films as The Jewel of the Nile, Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, The Beverly Hillbillies, and Mercury Rising. The latter film features Kevin Conway in the cast. Konner, without Rosenthal, wrote three teleplays for the HBO series The Sopranos (starring Steven R. Schirripa). He was nominated for a Primetime Emmy award for his work on the first of those teleplays, the third season episode "Second Opinion."

More recently, Konner and Rosenthal worked on the remakes for Mighty Joe Young (featuring Lawrence Pressman and Scarlett Pomers) and Planet of the Apes (featuring David Warner). Their latest films were Mona Lisa Smile and Flicka, released in 2006. Konner cowrote the 2010 New York set fantasy film The Sorcerer's Apprentice from hit producer Jerry Bruckheimer and costarring Alice Krige.
