Nemesis definitely deserved it's PG-13 rating. If they want to appeal to a larger audience it would be logical to maintain the PG rating. Sexualty is not for children.

The most important thing I saw was..."physcial and virtual" That's a good idea....
This guy has me on board with the human aspect.

The ratings are about "themes" as well as nudity and violence...I really hope that the themes of this movie are grown up enough to warrant at least a P3-13.

A good movie doesn't need PG-13 to be grown up or serious. Hopefully the powers that be know this.

If it's both grown up and serious, it will be PG-13.

Star Trek TMP was rated G, I think. It was pretty grown up and very serious. Kinda slow, yeah, but I thought a really good movie. Hard to believe it had the same director as West Side Story!

I don't know. They can go either way with this but I think it will be a PG-13 rated movie.

Swore it was G and the director's cut was PG. Oh well. Anyway I liked the director's cut quite a bit, they really flushed out the VGER ship. But guess that's another thread.

I have TMP on VHS "Special Longer Edition" and it says rated G. I still think that J.J. will aim for PG-13 because they can do a lot more stuff violence, language, and sex appeal wise, which may not be necessarily good for the kids or a Trek movie in particular, but it is what a sci-fi film in this day and age usually gets.

hmm....not sure I want any other movie to aspire to Star Trek The Motion Picture.

However, ratings are tighter on "theme" issues now than they were 25 years ago. A lot of what was PG then would be PG 13 now (in part because the PG 13 designation did not exist. That only came into play after the first Indiana Jones movie... Steven Spielberg argued that there had to be a distinction between movies parent needed to monitor for 7 year olds and movies parents needed to monitor for 14 year olds).
