* NostalgiaFilter: Pointed out by Spock InUniverse. The human command crew view Khan through distant centuries, remembering him from their history classes fondly as the least evil of the Eugenics Wars' genetic supermen and they have the impression he was 'firm but fair'. Spock has a different and, it turns out, more accurate perspective that Khan was still a ruthless tyrant. This is probably meant to reflect how people romanticize historical figures like Napoleon and, indeed, Genghis Khan, as well as the old saw that Mussolini 'made the trains run on time'. (In fact, [=McGivers=] lovingly lists Napoleon as one of the figures whom Khan reminds her of.)

** Hey Kirk, do you think the girl who is enamored with the ambitious superman who is able to manipulate people should be allowed to hang out with him that much?
