The Associated Press is reporting that Ricardo Montalban, the star of ABC’s Fantasy Island who was Capt. Kirk’s nemesis Khan in an episode of the original Star Trek as well as in 1982’s The Wrath of Khan, has died at the age of 88.
My ears cringe when I think of that movie, for two reasons: the horrible mind-control parasites that Khan drops into Mr. Chekhov’s ear, and the melodramatic “KHAAAAAAAAAN!” that erupts from Kirk when taunted by the megalomaniac.
