No Khan in the new Star Trek: Huzzah!

Well, the news out of Hollywood is that Khan will not be in the second Star Trek movie. And I am relieved (and I expect that Lee is also pleased by this news).

There had been rumors that they maybe the producers wanted to go in a Wrath of Khan direction with the franchise, but really how could they do The Wrath of Khan when at this point no one has done anything to him in the first place.

And you don't think Spock is going to be really wary of Khan now knowing what happened to himself in the original history?

They basically have a blank slate to work with, and I think it would be more interesting if they explored different things in these movies than the original ones did, and it looks like that is exactly what they are going to do.

Very happy.

Time to tell some good old fashioned Wagon Train to the stars type stories :)

Actually that probably not right either, I don't really know what they should do but Khan was not it.

The story needs to be compelling race against time kind of stuff - I eagerly await what they'll come up with
