Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Almost as fun as IV!

Occasional language, and some strange exotic dancing (a felinoid and Uhura), but a fun entry in the series. Maintains the comedy of IV while exploring deep concepts.

Star Trek V

It is not their finest moment, but I don't think it deserves such low ratings. I find that it has lots of amusing moments. The plot was provocative.
