Khaaaaaaaan! Khaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!

A very apt scene of pop culture history, oddly amusing given the name of the villain, Khan. Another Mr. Khan’s criticism of Donald Trump has been covered in the news ad nasuem. Trump is in the Captain Kirk role.

KHAN'S VOICE
I've done far worse than kill you, Admiral. I've hurt you. And I wish to go on hurting you. I shall leave you, as you left me -- where no one will ever find you: poetic justice; marooned for eternity in the center of a dead planet -- buried alive.

KIRK
Khan -- !

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is one of my favorites. I’ve seen it so many times that I’ve lost count. A classic, Shakespearean drama.

The screenplay is quite different from how Ricardo Montalbán delivered it, and I think it’s better because of the editing and the shortening. It’s simplified and direct.
