It looks like everyone’s favorite Eugenics War superhuman psychopath might be getting a TV series all his own. Nicholas Meyer, writer of Star Trek II, IV, and VI, is reportedly developing a new project based around Khan Noonien Singh, or simply, “KHAAAAN!”
Details for the series are scarce thus far. The limited series would take place between the Star Trek original series episode Space Seed and The Wrath of Khan. Khan and his fellow “genetically superior” warriors struggle to survive for years on the planet Ceti Alpha V, where Kirk and the Enterprise crew leave them until the crew of the U.S.S. Reliant finds them years later.
More recently, Meyer has been involved as a writer on Star Trek: Discovery. However, he quickly moved on from the series to work on his own super secret Trek project. Many assumed it would be a fourth installment in the rebooted film franchise, but that does not seem to be the case anymore.
Khan was originally played by Ricardo Montalban in the original series episode “Space Seed” and in The Wrath of Khan, and by Benedict Cumberbatch in the J.J. Abrams-helmed Star Trek Into Darkness.
