Sex & Nudity

None, however there is some implication that two characters had a child illegitimately.

Violence & Gore

There are a number of scenes of space combat between the Enterprise and Reliant. During interior "explosion" scenes, crewmen of both ships can be seen to be killed in the blasts. In a scene set in Enterprise's sickbay, a number of characters die, including one shown to be horribly charred and bloodied, who speaks for a brief moment with Kirk before dying. One character is terribly burned near the end of the film by an explosion.

An individual is shown with lesions oozing green blood as s/he dies from radiation poisoning.

Bloody corpses are hung from rafters on Regula One by Khan's men.

Two characters are disintegrated by phaser fire; no gore is shown. One of these is a suicide, although in context it is a heroic self-sacrifice. Later in the film, another character sacrifices his life for the good of others.

A worm-like Ceti Eel is forcibly introduced into the ears of two characters; it is shown crawling into Chekov's. Depending on the cut of the film, the exit of the Ceti Eel from Chekov's ear can be bloody (some cuts had a extreme closeup of the ear, with blood oozing out as the eel exited). This eel is shot by a phaser, leaving a pool of goo.


A few PG rated phrases here and there but again nothing graphic.

Two characters consume a fictional alcoholic beverage which is illegal (and implied to be very potent from the character's reaction to it). In real life it would be "whiskey" or bourbon.

A character runs into a bloody corpse hanging from the ceiling, and another disintegrates himself with his own phaser which may upset younger viewers.
