Star Trek: The Wrath Of Khan (1982)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
It is the 23rd Century. The Federation Starship U.S.S. Enterprise is on routine training maneuvers, and Admiral James T. Kirk seems resigned to the fact that this 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!
At the end of the universe lies the beginning of vengeance.

More Movie Taglines:
- At the end of the universe lies the beginning of vengeance.
- Beyond the darkness...beyond the human evolution...is Khan. A genetically superior tyrant. Exhiled to a barren planet; banished by a Starship Commander he is destined to destroy. Left for dead, Khan has survived.
- [after being surrounded by Klingons in a starship simulator] Saavik: Any suggestions, Admiral? Kirk: Prayer, Mr. Saavik. The Klingons don't take prisoners.
Kirk: Galloping around the cosmos is a game for the young, Doctor.
David Marcus: Scientists have always been pawns of the military.
Carol Marcus: Please tell me what you're feeling. Kirk: There's a man out there I haven't seen in fifteen years who's trying to kill me. You show me a son that'd be happy to help. My son... my life that could have been... and wasn't. How do I feel? Old... worn out. Carol Marcus: Let me show you something that will make you feel young as when the world was new.
[On whether Kirk should assume command from Spock] Spock: If I may be so bold, it was a mistake for you to accept promotion. Commanding a starship is your first, best destiny; anything else is a waste of material. Kirk: I would not presume to debate you. Spock: That is wise. Were I to invoke logic, however, logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Kirk: Or the one. Spock: You are my superior officer. You are also my friend. I have been and always shall be yours.
- Director Nicholas Meyer envisioned the film as the ultimate extension of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry's idea of "Horatio Hornblower in space". Therefore, prior to filming he had the cast watch Captain Horatio Hornblower R.N. (1951) for inspiration.
Producer Harve Bennett viewed all the original "Star Trek" (1966) episodes and chose "Star Trek: Space Seed (#1.22)" (1967) as the best candidate for a sequel. Spock even remarks in the script that it would be interesting to return in a hundred years or so to see what type of civilization had grown there. This is the first time a movie was made as a sequel to a specific television show episode.
In "Star Trek: Space Seed (#1.22)" (1967) approximately 80 genetically-engineered supermen were left behind on Ceti Alpha V by the Enterprise. By the time of this film, only 15 (including Khan) are left. 20 were killed by Ceti Eels, the rest through other means (presumably as a result of the explosion of Ceti Alpha VI).
This is the only Star Trek film that features no appearances by Klingon characters.
The Enterprise Torpedo Room and Spacelab transporter sets were originally parts of the Klingon bridge built for Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979). In order to save money, shots of the Enterprise departing from dock, and in space, were taken from the first Star Trek movie. The Spacelab model is that of the orbiting space office turned upside down and with some cosmetic changes from the first Star Trek movie. This movie was produced by the Paramount Television division and released by the feature film division, in order to avoid the then-astronomical $43 million cost of the first feature film.
