Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
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.

Star Trek III: The Search for SpockClose
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.

- Phaser and photon starship battles, hand-to-hand combat with casualties, and characters evaporated by death rays. Planets and spaceships blow up.
- "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.
- Star Trek itself is an enormous commodity.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
