Did we miss something on diversity?

Great story; Should’ve been PG-13.

As violent as Wrath of Khan, with some PG swears. Great story.

Good movie, don't be so wimpy

This movie reflects the attitudes that were very strong during the close of the cold war. The gore that everyone speaks of is purple and ridiculous to be shocked by. The reference to smoking;so what, he didn't do it regularly and its a scene that takes 5 seconds at most. The space battles, again, so what. I watched Star Wars at 5 yrs old, and it did NOT scar me for life. People need to quit shielding children to the point where the REAL world will eat them alive; you are not doing them any favors. Otherwise there were some amusing parts, some suspenseful, alot of action, and most notably the requirement to think. The end is a little corny,we are talking Star Trek, but all in all , its a good movie.
