  • Overview
  • Details
  • Cast
Despite triumphing over the evil Khan, Admiral Kirk's victory is a hollow one -- McCoy (DeForest Kelley) is going insane, and Spock (Leonard Nimoy) is dead. Or is he? Kirk (William Shatner) jeopardizes his career by commandeering the U.S.S. Enterprise for a mission to the Genesis Planet. If he and his aging crew can defeat a deadly crew of Klingons, they may just be able to rescue their absent friend.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Star Trek III includes plenty of violence, with hand-to-hand combat (and a knifing), in addition to the usual bloodless phaser fire. There's quite a sense of sadness and loss, too, and a certain heroic starship is destroyed. Kirk and the rest of Spock's friends disobey direct Starfleet orders -- a real first, in a very military discipline-oriented series -- in order to carry out their personal rescue mission.

Sexual Content

Not applicable

Violence

Phaser and photon starship battles, hand-to-hand combat with casualties, and characters evaporated by death rays. Planets and spaceships blow up.

Language

"Bastard" is uttered in the famous line, "You Klingon bastard, you killed my son!"

Social Behavior

There is a continuing theme throughout about how to react with courage and resourcefulness in a seemingly hopeless situation. Themes of loyalty, sacrifice, friendship, and love run throughout.

Consumerism

Star Trek itself is an enormous commodity.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking, toasts, and a 23rd-century bar.
