It is the 23rd century. The Federation Starship U.S.S. Enterprise is on routine training manoeuvres and Admiral James T. Kirk seems resigned to the fact that this inspection may well be the last space mission of his career. But Khan is back. Aided by his exiled band of genetic supermen, Khan - brilliant renegade of 20th century Earth - has raided Space Station Regula One, stolen a top secret device called Project Genesis, wrested control of another Federation starship, and now schemes to set a most deadly trap for his old enemy Kirk... with the threat of a universal Armageddon!

3:56 Well, the outfits are better than last time anyway.
7:40 “Galloping around the cosmos is a game for the young.”
9:50 Oh, he said “prig”, I heard that wrong.
15:37 I don’t want to be judgemental but that effect, whilst good, is blowing from left to right whichever way they are facing.
22:14 I don’t recognise Khan but i do remember the story, so that’s something.


I’ve not been having a very good time with these Star Trek films so far. The first was pretty dire, and I couldn’t get more than half an hour into this one. Part of me feels bad that I didn’t give it a good go, but the other part of me just doesn’t want to even think about worm things crawling into people’s ears.

Maybe I’ll try again another day but for now this is has to end up on the unfinished pile.
