oh no!!! star trek biggies are on their way out. majel barrett-roddenberry passed december 18. today ricardo montalban. which star trek legend will die mid-february? can't be a red shirt. they're all dead already. at this point, no matter who it is, it would hurt, even if it were egomaniac shatner. but see montalban was pretty much the best original star trek villain ever, perhaps second only to the silicon egg laying pizza monster. who else made such an impact from the original series that s/he was brought back to reprise the role (in this case khan) in a movie 15+ years later? plus he had great moobs and broke racial barriers in hollywood and i'm sure was a sweet lay.
still i was kinda seriously creeped out by fantasy island, though i know many loved it. it came on after love boat and i didn't want to lose the light love boat vibe and get weirded out by that damn prop-filled, animatronic, time-distorting, '70s magic island. plus it was kinda on after my bedtime anyway. so i'll remember him as khan mostly but i know he was more than that. it's so difficult to resist the urge to freeze him so he can be revived hundreds of years from now, because that's how khan originated. but we all know freezing just turns everything to mush. still a fuck doll of him would be nice. i'm just saying.
