Re: your ideas for Khan before STID?

Well, original Khan was said to be 5 times as strong as a normal man with an increased intellect and ambition.
But Nukhan has near Spiderman-like leaping and strength abilities!
Actually, as with all characters in Nutrek his natural talents were probably dialled up to 11, so maybe this was a clue after all! :-)

I soooo wanted the villain to be Garth of Izar.

RIGHT UP until he said "my name is Khan" I thought it was likely someone else, which in retrospect is astonishingly dense
i just saw STiD again...and it seems like hecould easily be Garth..just as a little gray. And instead of shapeshifting, his power , gained from some other alien race (or maybe the same one???), gives him the power to heal amazingly quickly. But maybe they need a live transfusion to work.

But the radiation seems like waaaay to impossible (even for Trek).

You and me both. Based on prior recasting decisions, it didn't seem conceivable that BC could be playing that role.
i was in that mindset too. So sad i was wrong.

Strength isn't just weightlifting. 5x human strength means vastly improved jumping, too. It's stuff they just couldn't afford to portray in the 60's or 80's.

Re: your ideas for Khan before STID?

Well, muscle relates to mass on a cubic ratio. So he might be 5 times as strong as Kirk, but he'd be so massively heavy that bouncing around like a rubber ball would be out of the question.

Maybe the magic blood had something to do with it?

Re: your ideas for Khan before STID?

currently listening to the bob orci Mission Log podcast and at around 28:30 onwards orci says the original intention was to do a sort of 'Heart of Darkness' with khan (I believe that was the original premise for Insurrection), then talks about the whole process of getting to STID..

Re: your ideas for Khan before STID?

Yeah, Garth of Izar would have been a better choice. You could have still have had the vengeance aspect, especially if Starfleet had thrown him under the bus in order to hide the plans to go to war against the Klingons.

I can picture it now... "That's not Garth of Izar, his boots are the same colour! Abrams hates Star Trek!!"
