Ricardo Montalbán: 1920-2009

Ricardo Montalban as Kahn in Star Trek

The year is not starting out too well for Star Trek Alumni. Majel Barrett-Roddenberry died a few weeks ago, and Ricardo Montalbán passed away just yesterday. He was 88 years old.

Even though Ricardo stared in one of my other favorite childhood shows, Fantasy Island, I’ll always think of him as Khan Noonien Singh, the genetically engineered super-villian from Star Trek.

Rest in peace, Ricardo.
