Devin Faraci of CHUD fame has a new site and today he has news from one of his reliable Bothans within the Star Trek II production that Khan is out as the villain, and the movie won’t have a traditional “villain” at all. Aside from the Klingons, which are obviously expected in the story in some way, his source says that the adversary part of the story will be one of these five Classic Trek characters:
1. The Horta
2. Harry Mudd
3. The Telosians
5. Gary Mitchell
Devin feels that the last two are the most likely, and we agree. However, we can’t help but imagine how awesome it would be if Abrams cast Shatner as Harry Mudd.
