Trek Untold-Episode 143: Behind the Scenes of “The Wrath of Khan”
Behind the Scenes of “The Wrath of Khan”
John and Maria Jose Tenuto are the authors of the new book, “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan: The Making of the Classic Film”. You've seen these two before in “The Toys that Made Us” and other pop-culture shows discussing sci-fi and other awesome geeky things, and now they've taken that passion to a new level with this meticulously researched book that left no stone, or Ceti Eel, unturned.
We learn a ton of new surprises as the Tenutos dug deeper than anyone has gone before to uncover the truth about this legendary film, including the original long-term plans for Saavik, understanding the Chekov/ Khan meeting, the “Khan baby,” and demystifying and debunk many myths surrounding the movie.
The Tenutos are also sociology professors, so we discuss the sociology of Star Trek and how to examine it through this lens, the best characters that use sociology as part of their growth, a sidebar on their weird Star Trek merchandise collection, and using sociological constructs to examine Trek toys. Plus, the best order for a Star Trek noob to watch the movies! This jam-packed episode has a load of information, so sit back and enjoy talking Trek with the Tenutos!
