starsrift: No, you fatuous idiots. If you were truely a fan of both sci-fi's, you would know that Khan was genetically engineered to be a superior human, was smart enough to reason it true based on logical metrics, and was rejected by the planet and society that created him. His villainy in his first appearance on the TOS Trek is a result of a lifetime where "normal" humans have proven duplicitous and impossible to trust, and he also has a quite reasonable desire for vengeance, if misdirected. He wasn't "born bad", the whole humanist approach of that episode is to say that nurture is more important than nature - and nurture had failed Singh.
