R.I.P. Ricardo “Khan” Montalban

I haven’t been online in a couple days and was just informed by my friend at The Offical Star Trek Convention myspace page that Ricardo Montalban passed away Wednesday. He was 88. Ricardo was most famous for his role of “Khan Noonen Singh” who he first played in the 1967 Star Trek episode “The Space Seed” (one of the all-time best) and later reprising that role in one of sci-fi’s greatest movies, “Star Trek 2: the Wrath of Khan”. Ricardo was also a star of one of my all time favorite TV shows “Fantasy Island” where he played the role of the legendary “Mr. Rourke”. You will be missed Mr. Montalban…
