    Recently word came down that Benicio (?sic?) Del Toro, Alice Eve and Peter Weller have been cast in the 2013 Star Trek film by JJ Abrams.

    Many Trek fans speculate that Del Toro will be a rebooted version of Space Seed's Khan Noonian Singh. Or that the actor will be playing a Klingon character from the classic TV series (Kang, Koloth, Kor).

    But what if JJ Abrams and the writers have another genetic superman in mind for the antagonist? In the classic Trek TV series a character named Colonel Green was used in the episode The Savage Curtain. Whereas Khan was a genetic superman from India the cruel tyrant Colonel Green was from America.

    Might Del Toro as Colonel Green be on the loose to threaten the crew of the USS Enterprise? Check out a photo of the Colonel Green character from The Savage Curtain. Then compare that actor's image to Del Toro's image.

    What of Alice Eve and Peter Weller? My first thought was Alice Eve as Nurse Chapel and Peter Weller as Ruhk (?sic?) -the-Ancient-Android from the classic TV show episode What Are Little Girls Made Of?. Weller and the actor that played the original Ruhk share some facial traits.
