Goodbye Ricardo Montalban

I know this is a little bit late, but I think I should still take note of the death of a great actor. Ricardo Montalban died on January 14, 2009. Montalban will always stand out in my mind as Khan Noonien Singh, one of James T. Kirk's nemesis' in the original Star Trek series and the only villain worthy of his own dedicated Trek movie Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. This was one of my favourite Star Trek films as a child, so Montalban will always hold a special place in my heart. Well, as much as any actor who I've never met and whose personal life I know nothing about can hold a place in my heart. The other role that I remember is his part in the Planet of the Apes saga. He was a great actor and will be sadly missed.
