Show Notes

"Do you know the Klingon proverb that tells us revenge is a dish that is best served cold? Well, it is VERY cold in space." We welcome our long-time Trekkie pal Brian as our second-ever guest on NNUTS to discuss one of the Starship Enterprise's most illustrious villains: Khan. From William Shatner's unbelievable longevity, to Ricardo Montalban's suspiciously rippling pectorals, to the phenomenal cast of JJ Abrams' remakes, we deconstruct these contributions to Trek lore from the controversial to the contemporary. This is surely our longest episode yet, so listen long and prosper.

Media covered:

"Space Seed" from Star Trek: The Original Series (1967)
