The Wrath of Khan

Episode 83: Khan Noonien Singh

SUPERIOR ABILITY BREEDS SUPERIOR AMBITION

KhanThis week we focus on the greatest adversary Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the Starship Enterprise ever faced! We speak, of course, of Khan Noonien Singh!

We’ll examine the backstory of this genetically-engineered super human, look at his appearances in Star Trek and talk about the character’s evolution from Space Seed all the way to Into Darkness! Plus, we’ll also discuss some of Khan’s other appearances in books and comics.

Plus, we’ll give our picks for the actors we would have cast as Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness–and some of our picks just might surprise you!

All that and news–and did we mention we’re giving away a thing–all in Episode 83 of the Trek Geeks Podcast! You’ll want to chase us ’round the moons of Nibia and ’round the Antares Malestrom and ’round Perdition’s Flame before you give this one up!

Episode 42: The Wreath of Khan, Pt. 2 w/Ken Ray

ONE EPISODE JUST WASN’T ENOUGH!

Ep 42 - Wreath of Khan Part 2After all the fun and frivolity that we had with Larry Nemecek last week, we just HAD to continue our special Wreath of Khan extravaganza, and this week we have upped the stakes!!

Today, we continue our discussion about what may possibly be the best holiday movie ever with the one and only Ken Ray from Mission Log – A Roddenberry Star Trek Podcast!  Ken has a tradition of watching Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan every Christmas Eve, so it just made sense that we wrap up our 2015 Podcasts talking to the legend himself!  Enough of this A Christmas Story 24 hour Marathon on TBS nonsense…it’s time for a change to things around and have a full day of KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!

Ken will give us some great insight into his thoughts on ST:TWOK as well as why it is his holiday tradition.  Additionally, we discuss some other tidbits of information that he has in the brain that he hopes one day is living in a robot body!

Also, we have some special holiday thoughts and wishes for family friends, and you our wonderful listeners!

It’s all in Episode 42 of Trek Geeks – A Star Trek Podcast, “The Wreath of Khan – Part 2!”

KEEP UP WITH KEN RAY!

Today, we we bring you the first part in our discussion on Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan!  What’s that, you say? It’s not a holiday movie?! Hey, you can’t spell “wreath” without “wrath,” and that was all we needed.

We’ll be joined in our discussion today by none other than Dr. Trek, himself: Larry Nemecek!

Join us as we talk about some of the history behind Star Trek II, how it became more naval and militaristic, and some of our favorite and least favorite moments in the movie! We’ll also talk a little about the documentary Larry has been working on, “The Con of Wrath!”
