Star Trek 2: Wrath of Khan

On July 3, 2013, Sharon, Jack and I watched Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. After seeing Star Trek into Darkness in June, we are going to start a project to go back and see all of the other Star Trek films in order like we did with the James Bond films.

Released 1982 by Paramount Pictures, the film is the second feature based on the Star Trek science fiction franchise. The plot features James T. Kirk (William Shatner) and the crew of the starship USS Enterprise facing off against the genetically-engineered tyrant Khan Noonien Singh (Ricardo Montalbán), a character who first appeared in the 1967 Star Trek television series episode Space Seed.

This is a much better film than the first Star Trek movie. I particularly liked Ricardo Montalbán's performance. At some point, I need to go back and watch the 1967 episode in which Khan first appeared.
