Re: Into Darkness and the novelverse [SPOILERS]
^Except they did show a photo of Khan on the briefing room viewscreen once they knew who he was. It's just one of those plot holes that show up in series TV sometimes because they don't have time to think through the ramifications of every detail. Like, how come nobody knew that Data was Noonien Soong's creation even though he looked exactly like Noonien Soong?
Yeah, I just rewatched the episode and saw that. He's even wearing the same clothes.
