|nudity||11:18-11:31 - Sulu while on leave meets what appears to be his little girl. After giving her tons of kisses he walks away arm in arm with another man, appearing to caress his back while walking. The backstory per the studio is this was originally supposed to feature a homosexual kiss. The finished scene could still be viewed homosexual but could just as easily be viewed and a guy greeting his niece or daughter and meeting up with his brother.|
|violence||The film contains numerous sci-fi action scenes that take place between the aliens and the crew of The Enterprise. These 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. As the scenes are prolonged and intense, they would be more appropriate for a teen audience.|
|profanity||Infrequent mild language. An incomplete utterance of the stronger expletive, "motherf**ker", may be present in a deleted scene under some home-video releases (i.e. Blu-Ray, DVD). Two uses of "horsesh*t", 4 uses of "dammit", 1 "my God", 2 "bastard", 1 "damn", 2 "hell", and 1 "ass".|
|frightening||'Star Trek Beyond' revolves around the crew of the USS Enterprise who embark on a rescue mission at the fringe of the charted galaxy after receiving a distress signal. However, they find themselves running into a trap and coming under attack by a seemingly unstoppable swarm of alien ships commanded by the villain Krall. Official MPAA Rating: Rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi action and violence Note: The extra features under some video-home releases (i.e. Blu-Ray, DVD) may include a segment under 'Beyond The Darkness' where members of the crew discuss the character of Zulu, the casting of an appropriate actor as his husband, as well as the reason behind the depiction of a homosexual family unit in the film.|
