Overview

While out on routine training maneuvers, a starship encounters a powerful and supposedly exiled foe from the distant past: Khan. Only Kirk can stop the Moby Dick-quoting, vengeance-crazed genius from bringing about universal destruction in this warp-speed thrill ride. A continuation of the plotline begun in episode 24 of the original series, "The Space Seed."
Khan, a genetically engineered "superman" prone to megalomaniacal delusions, was exiled years ago to the barren planet Ceti Alpha 5. He blames Admiral Kirk for his hard fate, as well as for his son's death, and vows revenge. When Commander Chekov mistakenly beams down to Khan's lair, the villain finally has a means of escape. Using a parasitic creature that allows him to control the minds of his victims, Khan seizes command of the Starship Reliant. From there he hopes to lure Kirk to his death, using equipment stolen from an experimental research project. These devices allow him to trigger something known as the "Genesis Effect" -- a means of generating new life from existing matter. Khan plans to use the creation machines as weapons, because the same fire of life that creates new worlds must destroy what existed before. Kirk and crew need all the courage and cunning they can muster in order to save their friend and silence Khan forever.

    Film was also known as "Star Trek: The Vengeance of Khan."

    Estimated budget: $12 million. Color by Movielab.

    "II" wasn't part of the title when the film was initially released.

    One of the film's advertising tag-lines was: "At the end of the universe lies the beginning of vengeance."

    Paramount consulted focus groups before beginning production, in order to test audience reaction to the film's story -- especially its unexpected ending, which they worried might upset longtime fans of the series.

    Re-released on video in the United States in 1991 to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the first "Star Trek" television episode.

    Additional credits include: Hal Landaker (Video Supervisor); Chris Evans and Frank Ordaz (Matte Artists); Arthur Repola and Peter Amundson (Effects Editor Supervisors); Don Kracke and Rodger Johnson (Title Design); Alan Howarth (Special Sound Effects); Dr. Richard Green (Technical Adviser)

    A sequel of sorts to the "Star Trek" TV epidode "Space Seed", which first aired in 1967. Ricardo Montalban reprises his role as Khan.

    Rated BBFC A by the British Board of Film Censors.

    Shot in Panavision.

    Available to buy in the UK.
