Very sad news for all Star Trek, cinema and televison fans. Ricardo Montalban has died at the age of 88. Without his great villian character of Khan Noonien Singh, Star Trek would have never risen back to the cinematic status it enjoys today. Thanks for all the wonderful films Ricardo! :o

aww man this TRULY sucks

Trek's greatest villain,Trek's greatest movie,great actor will be missed.

He tasks me. He tasks me and I shall have him! I'll chase him 'round the moons of Nibia and 'round the Antares Maelstrom and 'round Perdition's flames before I give him up!

To the last, I will grapple with thee... from Hell's heart, I stab at thee! For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee!


Another sad day in fandom :(

Khan was the only villain I was sad to see Spock rescue Kirk's ass to beat.
