Why is Star Trek Beyond rated PG-13? Star Trek Beyond is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sequences of sci-fi action and violence.

Violence: Characters are in peril in many scenes throughout this film, although little blood or other detail of violent acts are shown. A weapon that uses small particles to break up larger objects is employed against living beings; we see this in action when a humanoid is disintegrated—no explicit detail is seen. A character tortures two other people who are hanging upside down and connected to cables that allow the attacker to extract a life force from them. Multiple scenes depict conflicts on a broad and individual scale. An enormous swarm of spacecraft attack other ships. Individual conflicts involve men and women fighting in hand-to-hand combat, augmented with a variety of futuristic weapons. Characters fall from heights. A character is seen with a large fragment protruding from his abdomen; another character attempts to remove it.

Sexual Content: A brief scene depicting life on the Enterprise shows a shirtless man being kicked out of a woman’s quarters. Another has a man and woman kissing in the doorway.

Language: Infrequent profanities include two scatological terms, some mild expletives and a couple of uses of names of deity used as expletives.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Characters briefly drink hard liquor and discuss their appreciation for it.
