Factoid: Ricardo Montalban volunteered to discount his salary to 100K so the film's budget could accommodate all the expensive FX features it needed. He enjoyed playing Khan so much the role wasn't about money for him.
The ONE and ONLY STAR TREK. For me, the VERY BEST Star Trek movie ever made. ONLY the ORIGINAL STAR TREK for me !!!!! Everything else pales in comparison. 👍👍
Great scene. Masterful maneuver by Kirk. Richardo and ONLY Richardo is KHAN !!!! ☺☺
I was trying to listen to music…then I saw this clip….🤣. 10 mins later….I'm watching the movie.
I love the Miranda class ships and the pulsed Phaser Canons That are used during this time period.
More of the fact I grew up on this and both TOS and NG of Star Trek.
It Still busts me up to see the grand lady get all Shoot up
That asshole Kahn! F**king up my beautiful Enterprise!!There was initially a bit of criticism of the design of the Miranda Class Starship. We all remember our 1st glance of the Reliant, fully expecting it to be a Connie! Instead it was a sort of Connie Variant. IMHO it was/is a cool design! One problem: Where is the Navigational Deflector?I'm guessing that the Reliant was influenced by the Ptolemy Class Transport Tug from the Star Trek Blue prints that were published around 1976! I actually designed a few Constitution Variants of my own by tracing directly from those blueprints. My fellow Trek-Nerd friends were really impressed!!
The amazing part is how Ricardo Montalban sells the idea that he's on a starship, in space and firing weapons on the Enterprise. In reality, he's just on a sound stage yelling FIRE! into the camera and hoping it all comes together with special effects & music later on to sell it to the audience!
Everytime the Reliant is on screen I am fully erect
Welcome to faauntasy island.
I wish Khan's crew had a few more lines of dialogue. Still love the film though. Iconic.
What? No Shaky Cam(tm)? No average 1.2 second per cut? I thought that was what made movies good.
Classic film. Exciting scene. 🖖
Where is the crew of the reliant?
That is exactly what any admiral would ask in that situation. In JJ abrams millennial redos the skip over that realistic dialog and go straight to pew pew pew
There is one thing that people forget with these old movies is that they were made for a limited number of pixels. With modern televisions and DVDs we begin to see some of the actors makeup and flaws more which is why I like watching these on the older formats.
Seen this countless times over the years, but every time I watch this scene I can't help willing Kirk to get those damn shields up.
What I tell I'm aloud to do I'm loud to watch TV I'm aloud to play video games and aloud to buy a new console aloud buy game copy s, aloud watch movies and aloud to go everywhere with my mother, ,,!!!
The fake probably meangmeant, outsiders, are unthing but, a bunch of little kids at a school yard, and the real property management team wouldn't harass people like that?
One of the best directed movies period..
Khan, the supposedly superior intellect, got out-smarted and out-tricked by Kirk who was in a bad situation.
"Let them eat static"…How I love this movie and the return of Khan! The Wrath of Khan and First Contact are my all time favorite Trek movies!
I swear Montalban absolutely relished his part. When I was a little kid I saw Khan as a genuinely scary character. Looking at it with grown up eyes, you see how he really made this part his own.
That was Khan's sons who died later in the film. Chances are most of his crew were his spawn.
Best pulsed-laser visual effects ever. I think the creator of that method also did the same for Terminator 1984. 🖒Edit: watch effects on high resolution display, in slow motion!
I think Kirk knew he messed up when he didn't order shields to be raised.
3:08,,, "I Can't BREATHE! I Can't BREATHE!!". Scotty should've said, "If yer screamin and a yellin' then YER a BREATHIN'!!! Now Get Back To Yer Stations Ya NOOBS!!!".
Spock could have told Sulu to raise shields. That would have been the logical thing to do…
She knew about regulations, but had no clue about a starship's individual command consel!
I Love the classic movies. But people should admit that the "YELLOW ALERT" was invented by script writers trying to avoid the plot hole logic conversation of why a freaked out Captain wouldn't just yell Red Alert in the first place, and raise the shields avoiding the next hour of the movie…
Just like a Submarine they have no O2 in space……..Life support Aux. Power and Battery back ups rather then the Gas, Nuclear, or Steam power. Battery Lithium Ion power?? Or Carbon Nano-Tube infused battery power……….?? Nuclear Battery?? Or giant copper tops
You know, for a ship called "The Reliant", it was not a reliable ally.
This is how you create drama. Instead of keeping secrets from the audience to try to surprise them, keep secrets from the characters to build the tension.
I still love these uniforms!! Anyone else?
Khan does know a Klingon proverb?
Messed up communications, a threat to classified materials, and a ship not answering hails? Screw it, just stay at yellow alert. No need to raise shield. Shut up Lt Savack
After watching Montabans acting In this, I thought why was he being wasted on Fantasy Island.
Love this movie
Khan’s Son: We can’t fire, sir!
Khan’s Son: They’ve damaged the photon control and the warp drive! We must withdraw!
Khan: So then why can’t we fire phasers? Those are still working, right?
Kahn’s Son: If we do that, we’ll destroy the Enterprise, and we won’t be able to have a climactic battle in the nebula!
Khan: I see your point…
I think it's the best space battle scene in the history of Sci fi.
WHy would anybody want to be in engineering?
I always enjoyed this scene but would always scratch my head as to how suddenly Kirk tells Sulu to “…lock phasers on target.” when just moments earlier Kirk had asked Scotty if he could get them phaser power and Scotty said something like “We’re fused short…” or something like that…which pretty much indicated to Kirk that they didn’t have access to their phasers.
Am I missing something? Did the writers literally expect the audience to just forget that the ship had no phasers moments ago but suddenly did?
Don’t get me wrong please. I love the film, but this seems like a big loophole in the plot for the sake of keeping the action going and our beloved characters alive.
Sulu, get those shields up…! ! !Well, Dumbass if you'd have listened to Kristie they'd ALREADY be up..
I wish they would still make star trek like this. The best.
Probably the best out of the movies. All the newer ones are garbage.
The Borg would have assimilated both of them. You, too, will adapt to service… us.
