Re: why didnt Kirk put khan back in the freezer at the end of Space Se
About Kirk never going back to check on Khan.
Wouldn't Marla McGivers' family ask Starfleet to go back and check up on HER at least, or try to appeal against Kirk's decision to leave her with him? I mean sure, she was utter treason what she did (and for pretty lame reasons to boot) but you'd think there'd be some objection to it from her family.
Unless she was an orphan or something.
Her family was likely told she was missing in action. Starfleet wouldn't want anyone to know that 80 supermen had been deposited on a world somewhere.
