‘Star Trek: Khan’ Miniseries To Examine The Villiain’s Origin

His identity was a matter of speculation for months, but now that the release of Star Trek: Into Darkness is safely a couple months behind us, IDW is releasing a brand-new, six-issue miniseries to offer up the details of big bad Khan Noonien Singh’s origin. Writer Mike Johnson and artist Claudia Balboni will work with Roberto Orci, one of the screenwriters of the movie, to tie the series into the film.

“[Star Trek:Khan will add dimension and depth to this new iteration one of the most classic villains in all of Star Trek lore,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s chief creative officer and editor-in-chief.

The series will cover the Eugenics Wars, the conflict over selective breeding that led to Khan’s status as a world conqueror in the early 1990s (yes, the 1990s). At least, that’s according to the story of the classic-series Khan, who was played by Ricardo Montalban. Much of that ground about the alternate Khan has already been covered in Star Trek novels; one would assume this series set in the movies’ alternate universe, with Benedict Cumberbatch as the character, will take things in a different direction. Maybe they’ll even explain why this version of Khan is white!

The new mini coincides with IDW’s ongoing Star Trek series, along with the Star Trek: Countdown to Darkness movie-prologue mini.
