STAR TREK is a sci-fi action adventure film about a starfleet battling a vicious and vengeful enemy.


Fight scenes include heavy blows to the head and body, and brief sight of a man's bloodied face. There is also a scene in which a man stamps on another man's fingers as he clings on to a high ledge, and one in which a man is run through with a sword and which includes sight of the tip emerging from his chest.


Some prolonged and intense scenes include the destruction of a spaceship, and the death of the lead character's father. There is also a scene in which a man is strapped down, and threatened with a slug held over his open mouth, and another scene in which people are chased by monstrous creatures.

A woman comically tells a man that he is likely to be the sort of person who would have sex with farm animals.

In one scene, a man and woman kiss and cuddle on a bed; however, there is no further sexual activity.

In another scene, a boy drives a car at high speed, and narrowly escapes serious injury when he leaps from the vehicle.

TIn the background of one scene, a use of strong language ('f**k') can be made out in the lyrics of a song. However, it is unclear because of other sounds occurring at the time. There is also some mild bad language (for example, 'bullshit', 'bastard', 'damn', 'God' and 'hell')
