From the bits of dialogue I remember, we don't know that Khan would have performed "missions" for Marcus. Supposedly, Khan provided input on how to build new weapons, or at least how to improve on them. This may well have been a full-time job, but more importantly, it is likely to have been a short-leash one. Marcus wouldn't have much motivation to let Khan wander outside Section 31 think tanks.

At least not until he chose to use Khan as an excuse for starting the war with the Klingons. Did he choose that after Khan rebelled and escaped? Or was the rebellion and escape part of Marcus' plan?
I think there's some tie-in material online, stating that Khan did do some field work for S31, specifically investigating Klingon activity in the Phaedus system. Perhaps Marcus felt that with the rest of Khan's people in his possession, Khan would not try to escape or overstep his bounds, out of fear for their lives.

IIRC, Khan was involved in something called "The Praxxis Project" - it's kinda crazy that perhaps he's responible for the moon's premature detonation in this timeline.

"The Praxxis Project" is barely legible in the blanked-out portions of the reports here: http://trekmovie.com/2013/05/15/trek...ss-viral-site/

Re: Time between the movies

The Praxis Project was compromised? Judging from the film, it appears to have gone okay to me, assuming the purpose of the project was to destroy it, thus weakening the Klingon Empire.

Re: Time between the movies

"Compromised" in spy lingo would supposedly mean exposure - that is, the victims learned whodunnit. Makes sense that the Klingons would be extra pissed off!

Do we actually see this piece of communications onscreen somewhere?
