[Kicking Back with Jersey Joe] Khan Finally Gets Revenge on Admiral Kirk

Of all the Star Trek movies ever produced, the second film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is generally regarded by fans as the best.  Khan, a generically engineered human seeks revenge on Admiral Kirk after stranding him on a dead planet on the original TV series.  Kirk and Khan get into several epic battles during the film, but this version I found on YouTube was sadly, not part of the original feature.  Had the two battled in this manor, perhaps the end result would have been different?

 

Khan is a super intelligent human; it was engrained in him as part of his genetic engineering when he was created back on Earth.  His “superior intellect,” as he calls it, allows him to be a superior tactician.  It’s this intellect that helped him to become the largest ruler back on Earth and narrowly be defeated by Captain Kirk in their first encounter on the season one episode.

 

But, as you will see in this video, it’s not phasers or photon torpedoes that Khan uses against Kirk. It becomes a mind battle!

 

 

So, do you think Khan is the winner?

JERSEY JOE RECOMMENDS:

 

I happened to be surfing through YouTube the other week and came across this.

 

I love when fans add fun gags to already existing films and upload them to YouTube.  Hopefully, it won’t get taken down due to copyright violations, but let’s thank Tom Gigliotti for his awesome work on this.  The video has been online since May 2008 and has scored almost 140,000 views.
