And I think 'genetically engineered' is just updating the Khan story for the 21st century. The details are just changed - not the intention. Genetic engineering wasn't dreamed of realistically in the 60s or 80s.
Genetic engineering was the update in TWOK.
my point still stands. Even if my failing memory doesn't.
I don't care whether they said it in the 80s or 2010s.
If they update certain bits for current scientific thinking I'm not getting all upset.
Even though selective breeding seems more deliciously sinister than genetic engineering.
