The old "Star Trek" episode with Khan (1967)

The upcoming movie Star Trek: Into Darkness has inspired me to get up to speed with some Trek history and learn a little more about Khan---I suppose it's no surprise anymore that Khan is the main villain in the new movie (it was a secret for months).

So this weekend I watched the old "Star Trek" episode with Khan (Ricardo Montalban) - thanks to the old reliable Y-Tube.

I've heard about this episode for years, but never actually watched it. And it was pretty good, explaining Khan's history and everything.

Next up, I plan to watch the movie "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan"; I've never seen the whole movie yet.

So hopefully by the time the new movie comes out, I'll have enough background to understand what's going on. :)

  1. "Space Seed" was a first-rate STAR TREK episode and sets up THE WRATH OF KHAN nicely. It's almost as if Harve Bennett intended to make a sequel to that episode all along.
