Buckshot: Farewell, Khan and Number 6.

Two men who created iconic science fiction characters, in addition to their many other fine performances.


Ricardo Montalban, 1920-2009


Wrath of Khan is not just the best Star Trek film, it's one of the great science fiction films of all time.


Patrick McGoohan, 1928-2009


I am, sadly, only now discovering The Prisoner, thanks to AMC featuring every episode on their website. It's a fascinating show, and truly ahead of its time.
