I can't believe no one else has taken the moment to review this episode if for no other reason than to throw that in. lol.


Good episode. The 20th century historian was a downside, imo. Not all that believable.


At least it was realistic about how it took a simple matter of advanced technology (though a simpler example of it) to take down Khan long enough to get the ship under control again.

A classic episode and one of the best. I agree about the historian. I don't see how anyone that weak-willed could be in Starfleet. She deserved her fate on Ceti Alpha 5. I like Khan's line " has advanced little man himself has changed". Very acute statement.

A classic ep later revisited in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, the movie that really set the movies off into warp speed! I agree about the historian being far too weak a character to be a believable Star Fleet officer.

one of the most well written characters in TV fiction is Khan. Just watch the episode and compare him to the rest of the villains that appear on this series, and he has the most presence and there is no comparison. Forget the movie that came afterwards and this episode, in a weird way, almost makes more of an impact. Just as a story by itself, it is brilliant.

It will always be considere a classic, I think. It must have given its writer much pride, to see it turned into a film-one of the most popular in all so far.ut, they certainly got things stuck in a spot, 'history-wise', with the Eugenics Wars/sleeper ship concept, until Greg Cox 'unwound' the complications-if not canon-inhis books. And look at the great one-liner we got out of it eventually. Heck, I'll say it again, myself..KHAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNN!!!!'' Too many letters?Nah. Can't have enough on that one.
