#1 Oct 2010
The First Six Months
Left on Ceti Alpha V with cargo containers for shelter and the engines of the SS Botany Bay for power, as long as the fuel holds out, Khan, his woman, and his surviving brethren set out to conquer their new world with confidence. Although there are many hazards, there are none that can’t be handled by products of selective breeding and genetic engineering, except perhaps an exploding planet.

The First Six Months
Solicitation: When the most infamous villain in STAR TREK history is last seen in the Original Series episode Space Seed, Khan Noonian Singh's an elegant, proud warrior-king. When he's next seen in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, he's a grizzled maniac, twisted by loss and an unquenchable thirst for revenge. What has happened between these two points in time to so radically alter what seemed to be an unbreakable will?

Holding Out Hope
Khan has to remind his people that they have nothing to fear following the explosion of Ceti Alpha VI. Nevertheless, the environment of their new home deteriorates. Crops fail, game animals disappear, debris strikes near home and people become ill with some sort of paralysis. The younger colonists conclude that the planet's orbit has shifted and is dying. They demand that Khan take action. Khan is certain of two things, his people can thrive on adversity and Kirk will come.
