Kirk vs Khan: The Way It Was Meant to Be

Remember back when Captain Kirk battled Khan Noonien Singh and they made a good movie about it?

Yeah, unless you’re like, 35 years old (or older), you weren’t around during that blessed time. Some money-grubbers remade the movie swapping lens-flare for pathos and back story, but I suggest you skip that one.

Anyway, the original one had, of course, lots of tie-in merchandise, including a recorded book (on vinyl), which I purchased at a thrift shop some years ago. I think I bought it back in 2004 – August 2004 to be more precise. Jennifer and I were vacationing for our anniversary, and I spotted this record still in its original packaging.

Fast forward to July 2013: I’m moving our record collection from one cabinet to another cabinet, and my son sees the record. He says he wants to listen to it. I tell him we will later.

Last week, we finally did listen to it. Watch this short documentary on the event, below. If nothing else, I get a kick out of the excitement in Owen’s expressions:

    This is still the best of the Star Trek movies.

    Have you given this a whirl:

    I started watching the first episode, but quickly realized that I should, first, go and watch the original series. I should probably watch the movies as well since I can only remember the sixth one (and maybe a few scenes from the fourth).

    Thanks, finley.
    Agreed, Cory.
    I was unaware of that, David. Thanks. The original “five-year” mission was completed with the two-season animated series, so it’s not like it wasn’t finished. Regardless, I’m intrigued. I like the idea of a more solid ending for “Turnabout Intruder,” which was a decent episode, but was a poor finale. I’ll watch them soon.
