    The ball on that may have gotten rolling with the invention of Colonel Green near the end of the series and his description as being involved in a "genocidal war early in the 21st century," clearly placing it after the Eugenics Wars. Then Gene and the creators decided on a nuclear World War III for Earth sometime around the mid-21st century in the premiere of TNG so it all had to be worked together, making the Eugenics Wars of the 1990s and the nuclear Third World War two entirely separate conflicts divided by fifty or more years.

    You know we should really weigh the pros and Khans of this La’An character. It Khan’t be all bad, could it? We don’t have much Khan-text yet. And I’d hate for us to be typical Khantankerous fans.

    I'm just worried the writers are showing little to no respect for khantinuity. Khanversely, sometimes you have to do a little creative retkhanning in the name of a good story khancept.

    Would it be fair to argue that the basis for the miniaturisation of the transporter tech and the targeting system is a step forward and counts as innovation but that, as happens often, the military then got their hands on it and repurchased it from whatever the initial use was and so the weaponisation is adaptation rather than innovation?

    It's Star Trek. It's technology that often doesn't hold up under much scrutiny. What's "Treklike" and what isn't is a real reach. As long as the story works fine.

    The boots. They're not overly decorated like the DSC ones, which is nice.

    I think they still go over top of the trouser cuff and the latter isn't flared like in TOS but the boots themselves appear to be plain black boots. This is a good thing.

    Which is what I think is the case in Greg Cox's Eugenics Wars novels.

    The 3rd world would be easy prey- they have armies meant to pacify their own people, not defend against a 1st world enemy. Would make sense for Kahn and his folk to cull the underclasses of the world. Less mouths to feed.
    As for the lack of records? EMPs.

    But...why would Khan be considered a "1st world enemy"? Not many nations that would traditionally be considered "First World Powers" in the Middle East or Asia. And I doubt he started his rise to power in Japan.

    His South Asian and Middle Eastern empire would encompass some pretty oil-rich and industrial areas including India, which even in the real life '90s was beginning to explode as an industrial power.

    Maybe Khan was from Mexico or Britain? He just decided to set up his base in Asia. Who knows how the Supermen divvied up the world. His cohorts had an international flair, so I assume they weren't native to his Empire. Could be the whole "Khan Noonien Singh" name was made up. Despite what a certain "historian" might claim. I'm going with Juan Harrison as the real "Khan". ;)

    In my head canon "Ferris" from "Whom Gods Destroy(TOS)" was the British Augment strongman who tried to overthrow the democratic government and monarchy.

    Yeah, but Khan was also lying there too.
