More Sad News for Star Trek

I am sorry to report the loss of another member of the Star Trek family.

Ricardo Montalban, who you may know as Khan from Star Trek, Senor Armando from the Planet of the Apes movies, Vincent Ludwig from The Naked Gun, and Mr. Roarke from Fantasy Island, died this morning at the age of 88. No cause of death has been given yet.

Ricardo Montalban as Khan from Star Trek II: The Wrath of KhanForgive the levity. Thank you, Ricardo Montalban. You will be missed.
