Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
The Canon #95September 26, 2016
Writer and Trekkie Dave Schilling joins Devin and Amy this week to discuss the iconic 1982 film “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.” They cover how director Nicholas Meyer’s detachment from the series affected the final product, the influence Star Wars had on the run of the series, and why the viewer shouldn’t invest too much in the craft of the film. Then, Dave explains specifically what it is about Star Trek that he holds dear, the gang debates whether Spock’s character is underutilized, and sparks fly as Amy airs her grievances with certain elements of the film. Should “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” boldy go into the Canon? Cast your vote on the Earwolf forums!
