Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan Turns 30 (Updated)

Thirty years ago, on June 4th, 1982, arguably one of the best Star Trek films and now a film classic was released. After Star Trek: The Motion Picture nearly crippled the franchise; this film revitalized Trek once again and insured it future. Khan is what all Trek films are compared against and often fall short with mix of character, theme, and perfect villain. So much so that even now most fans are hoping that Abrams is doing their take on Khan for next year's Star Trek film. Long time Star Trek novelist Dayton Ward gives his thoughts on the film at TrekMovie. Below is the original trailer and fan edit version. 30 I feel old. Cheers to an entertainment masterpiece.
