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!
