I’m slow to the news this week, but I did hear this yesterday and forgot to say something… Richardo Mantalban, beloved to the Star Trek universe as Captain Kirk’s super-genius nemisis, Khan Noonian Singh, died on January 14, 2009. I knew he was having quite a few medical issues, though I’m not sure exactly to the nature of them. He was 88 years old.
I also used to watch Fantasy Island as a kid. But I loved him best as Khan, hissing “Keeeerk!” as he spat lines from Moby Dick. RIP, Richardo Mantalban.
