Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Star Trek: Nemesis, which stars the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation, contains lots of sci-fi fantasy violence, including phaser fights, hand-to-hand combat, explosions, and even a fatal impalement. Only a few bloody wounds are visible, but a semi-gruesome mass death scene and the death of a main character may be too much for younger viewers. It also contains some sexual scenarios, including a brief love scene (no nudity) and some references to a telepathically initiated sexual violation. Social drinking is visible, and on one occasion gets a cast member drunk.
One scene involves a married couple being intimate in bed (but no nudity). A few sexual images suggest a sexual violation committed telepathically.
Lots of fantasy violence, including phaser fights, torpedo explosions, and space craft crashes. Few bloody wounds are visible, but physical fights lead to cuts and impalement. One scene features aliens horrifically being converted to ash. Crew members are shown being shot and blown out into space. A primary cast member dies in an explosion. An implication of sexual violence committed telepathically.
Like all Star Trek films and TV shows, this story highlights the importance of diplomacy, peace, accepting differences among people (and species), and conducting research ethically. Friendship and love are also themes here.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Wine, champagne, and alien brews (some illegal) are consumed at social gatherings. One cast member gets drunk at a wedding.
