Khan's Child

Did you think you know everything there is to know about Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan? Did you know about the Khan baby?

Dvin Faraci of Badass Digest has the scoop:

You may think that, 30 years after its release, you know every inch of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan*. And it's possible that you know this inch, but it's a really rare one that almost never gets brought up, and it's unclear if any of the footage still exists:

Khan originally had a child. In the movie the child first appears as Terrell and Chekov come upon the Botany Bay; Chekov sees the kid through a window briefly, and then the child scurries away. It's a moment of added tension as the two examine the wreckage of the ancient ship.

Interesting. The article in the link discusses Lt. Saavik's heritage as being half-Vulcan/half-Romulan, which acounts for some slight emotion shown during the funeral of Spock on her behalf. It also raises the rumour that she totally boned Kirk's son David before he died in ST III. If i recall, there was also talk about Saavik being pregnant in ST IV, hence the reason she didn't accompany the crew for The Voyage Home, though that wasn't explained in the movie. I'd always thought she got knocked up by a young, brainless Spock on the Genesis Planet while he was going through an accelerated Pon Farr with her. Now I'm wondering is she didn't get te big belly from David?
