Should I Let My Kids Watch "Star Trek?"

Being a parent in the age of peak television/peak streaming has its positives and negatives. On the one hand, we are no longer beholden to a broadcast schedule, with a limited number of choices being shown only at particular times, which makes homework and after school activities more tricky to navigate. We can choose from hundreds of shows, tailoring our viewing to our preferences, and watch them at exactly the times that work for us!

The problem, then, is that very thing - choosing what to watch, and figuring out our preferences. What should my kids watch? What levels of action, violence, sexuality, and adult themes are appropriate? Should they watch "Star Trek?" 

To explore strange new worlds... to seek out new life and vaporize it in a
bloody cloud when it crosses you.

The USS Protostar emerges 4,000 lightyears away from its last position in the Delta Quandrant, and now finds itself in the Gamma quandrant, with its engines down.

What could possibly go wrong?

I think this "new" ship was put together by monkeys.
