Khan Not In Star Trek 2

By Rachel Menendez

Ricardo Montalban as khan movies i didnt getAccording to the website Badass Digest and an unnamed production source, Khan, a Star Trek villain played by the late Ricardo Montalban and made famous by his appearances in the original ’60s TV series and the hit sequel to the first Star Trek film, will not be a character in the sequel to the new Star Trek reboot.

Speculation was high that Khan would be the focus of the new film, but sources revealed that the new film will not focus on a singular “mastermind” villain. Instead, the plot may involve a collection of classic Star Trek characters.

Khan is often seen as Captain Kirk’s biggest foe by many Star Trek: The Original Series (1966) fans, but the new film will have to create its antagonistic tension without him.

But then who will be the main villain?

It’s definitely a character that will make fans of TOS excited. Think along the lines of Harry Mudd or Trelane or Gary Mitchell or the Talosians or the Horta. Actually, it’s one of those that I named.

This news disappoints some of the Trekkie hopefuls, as the fate of Khan as a character in the new Star Trek makeover remains uncertain, but it does please many of them that J.J. Abrams, creator of TV’s Lost series and director of the highly successful first Star Trek (2009) reboot film, is still considering characters from the original series.
