Does the movie mention Section 31 altering Khan's appearance?
It's pretty obvious (to me anyway) that Khan was given plastic surgery, since he's still a wanted war criminal in the 23rd century and his face is most likely very recognizable from historical texts.

What Star Trek needs is not another makeover, it needs to return to the basics: science, politics, spirituality and morality. Yes, add in a bit more drama and action, yes have a decent pace, but each movie and (hopefully) new episode needs to have a lot more food for thought. Even with the bad Trek movies and episodes you always stopped to think about what was going on even if that alien race was cheesy or things didn't quite gel.
Oh please. This movie isn't any different than the last twelve ones, or the various series itself! Here's a reminder:

I have highlighted two of the most popular pre-JJ Trek movies in the fandom.
Trek was an action franchise from the second movie installment onward. To suggest otherwise is to completely ignore everything beyond The Motion Picture.
