Star Trek Into Darkness introduced a new generation of moviegoers to Khan Noonien Singh (played by Benedict Cumberbatch), one of sci-fi’s greatest villains. (Assuming they hadn’t met him before in his last incarnation. They probably did. It isn’t like Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan is some obscure Solaris-esque cult classic.) Now, as the J.J. Abrams-helmed flick tries to boldly go where the franchise has never gone before (a second consecutive $200 million domestic gross; the first $400 million worldwide gross ever), a different part of multimedia Star Trek entertainment machine is commemorating/merchandising Captain Kirk’s initial tussle with the genetically augmented super-human. Yep: The Star Trek retro poster campaign is finally giving fans “Space Seed,” the 22nd episode of the mothership’s first season, with Ricardo Montalban as Khan. The artist — as always — is Juan Ortiz. Here it is again in high res.
