About Khan Noonien Singh in brief
Khan Noonien Singh is a fictional character in the Star Trek science fiction franchise. He first appeared in the 1967 Star Trek: The Original Series episode ‘Space Seed’ He was portrayed by Ricardo Montalbán in the 1982 film ‘The Wrath of Khan’ In the 2013 film Star Trek Into Darkness, he is portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch. Khan is one of a group of genetically engineered superhumans, bred to be free of the usual human mental and physical limitations, who were removed from power after the Eugenics Wars of the 1990s. He was exiled to an uncolonized world, Ceti Alpha V, where he attempts to take control of the Starship Enterprise in 2267. He is thwarted by James T. Kirk and exiled on the planet. In Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan, Khan escapes his exile and sets out to exact revenge upon Kirk. In the alternate continuity, Khan is awakened almost a decade before the events of \”Space Seed\”. He is given the false identity ‘John Harrison’ and coerced by Admiral Marcus into building weapons for Starfleet in exchange for the lives of Khan’s crew. He ultimately rebels and comes into conflict with the crew of Enterprise. Khan was the most successful conqueror and the most benign ruler of the group, ruling more than a quarter of the Earth’s area across Asia to the Middle East from 1992 to 1996 with a firm but generally peaceful hand until he was deposed. Khan’s followers capture Captain Clark Terrell and First Officer Pavel Chekov of USS Reliant, and Khan explains that the barren world is Cet i Alpha V.
The sixth planet of the system exploded shortly after Khan and his followers were marooned. The cataclysm caused massive environmental damage, and many of the survivors—including Khan’s wife—were killed by an animal, eel. Only twenty of the surviving species survive. Khan seizes control of Reliant and seizes the mind-controlled device, rendering them vulnerable to attack. Khan then withdraws to make repairs, allowing Enterprise to inflict significant damage to Reliant’s shields, allowing Khan to withdraw and leave the ship. Khan later returns to the Reliant to take revenge on Terrell, but is forced to withdraw to make repair repairs. Khan lures Enterprise to the space station Regula I, and he launches a surprise attack that disables Kirk’s ship’s shields and he disables Khan’s spies by using a special code to remotely lower the shields of the ship’s vessel. Khan and 84 others escaped Earth by way of the sleeper ship SS Botany Bay. The ship’s historian, Marla McGivers, agrees to help Khan revive the other supermen, allowing him to organize an attempted takeover. Khan fascinates and charms McGivers while using his access to ship’s technical manuals to learn how to take over and operate Enterprise. Khan heads to engineering and sets the ship’s engines to self-destruct, whereupon he is incapacitated by Kirk. Khan accepts Kirk’s challenge—invoking the fall of Lucifer in Milton’s Paradise Lost.
