MPAA Rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi action and violence

Sex & Nudity

  • A brief kissing scene.
  • One scene shows a man and woman who are kissing passionately, and they enter a room and close the door behind them. Less than a second later, a different couple is shown, she in her undergarments, which only exposes her abdomen, and is only in a pair of long pants, hold his shirt, and we only see his back, while she is shown kicking him out of her room.
  • A lot less sex/sensuality than in the first two movies.

Violence & Gore

  • A dying character is shown onscreen. They've been hit with alien tech and are emaciated and skeletal before dying.
  • The film contains numerous sci-fi action scenes that take place between the aliens and the crew of the Enterprise.
  • These sci-fi action scenes mostly take the form of shooting with ray guns and some fist-fighting between the characters.
  • Some of the stronger portrayals of violence include one where the alien swarm crash their ships into the Enterprise, inflicting massive damage on the Enterprise with explosions and the crew being blasted about; a scene where a character is injured by a piece of metal embedded in the side of his abdomen, and the final battle which features fist-fighting with some heavy blows visible.


  • One incomplete use of "fuck". Several other minor profanities.
  • The term "horseshit" is used twice
  • Three uses of B**tard

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Kirk and Bones drink from a bottle of wine in one scene. Kirk appears to be intoxicated.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The idea of being stranded on a planet with almost no help of saving the Federation is scary.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The scene where the Enterprise is attacked by a large swarm of small spaceships is full of intensity. They crash into the Enterprise, the crew are shot at and taken hostage, and the characters who aren't taken hostage are eventually forced to escape in small pods and helplessly watch the Enterprise fall apart and crash. This whole scene lasts for about fifteen minutes.
