Synopsis

At last! Screenwriters are boldly taking fans of this TV and movie franchise where they have never gone before -- back into the pasts of James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and his trusty companion Spock (Zachary Quinto). This prequel will finally answer how the Captain became so confident and cocky, and how the Vulcan acquired his logical and unemotional demeanor.

Content Details

Why Is Star Trek Rated PG-13?

Star Trek is rated PG-13 for sci-fi action and violence, and brief sexual content.

See Canadian Movie Ratings

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Star Trek...

Dealing with Romulan rebels is never pretty. Many scenes in this film depict conflict sequences on both a wide scale (spaceships shooting each other) and a personal level. Characters engage in frequent hand-to-hand combat, often with bloodied injuries shown. Other scenes depict characters using futuristic weapons. Deaths occur from these encounters. Characters are also injured or killed by falling, impaling, being engulfed in fire or crushed by falling debris. A character nearly drowns. A man is shown strapped to a table in a torture situation—he is verbally threatened and a parasite is put in his mouth. Strange beasts chase and attempt to eat a human. A boy is bullied and pushed by others at school. A brief scene shows a shirtless man and woman in underwear in bed together (their sexual intentions are quickly interrupted). Another female character undresses and is shown in a bra and panties. A few mild profanities and terms of deity are heard. The script includes some sexual innuendo and a single joking reference to bestiality. Drinks are served in a bar, and a somewhat inebriated character begins fighting with other patrons. A man drinks from a flask. A child drives recklessly and is chased by police.
