The American author Greg Cox has written three novels of Star Trek in which Khan appears, published under license by Pocket Books , but whose stories are not considered to belong to the canon of Star Trek . In the two volumes of The Eugenics Wars: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh narrated the science experiments that give birth to Khan, his rise to power and his exile in Botany Bay by the action of Gary Seven to avoid his machinations on Earth. The continuation of the story, To Reign in Hell: The Exile of Khan Noonien Singh, was published in 2005 and recounts the adventures of Khan and his army of supermen on Ceti Alpha V to the events held in The Wrath of Khan. This last part was adapted as a cartoon with the title Khan: Ruling in Hell in 2010 .
In the first novel tells how a group of scientists in genetic engineering created somewhere in the Indian subcontinent, the "project Crysalis" to create enhanced humans, of which Khan would be the perfect example. This would have been born in 1970, his mother's own project director, Sarina Kaur. As one of the scientists of the project, the axiom of Khan's life would be "a superior ability feeds a higher ambition." In the second novel in 1992, a group of genetically enhanced humans, including Khan, simultaneously take control of more than 40 nations on Earth. Until 1996, Khan rules over a quarter of Earth's population, from Asia to the Middle East , an area comparable to the Mongol Empire of Genghis Khan . It is considered a benign dictator, whose influence prevents civil wars and massacres, but soon went to war against tyrants in calls eugenics wars . Ultimately defeated, Khan and 84 of his followers, who have sworn eternal loyalty, escape assaulting a sleeping interplanetary spacecraft DY-100 class, the SS Botany Bay. The third novel focuses on the decline into madness Khan , especially after the loss of his wife, Lt. Marla McGivers, the Enterprise, after the orbital distortion suffered by the planet Ceti Alpha V.
Khan's character and all that implies is in the context of other episodes, comics and novels in the saga of Star Trek. For example, in the episode A Matter of Time Series The Next Generation , Captain Jean-Luc Picard comments that violate the first guideline may result in the creation of a next Adolf Hitler or Khan Singh "question" to all students freshman philosophy since the first worm holes were discovered. " Khan's tyranny and war eugenic cause throughout the United Federation of Planets is prohibited genetic manipulation of human embryos, but there is a black market allowing resequencing the DNA , of that benefit people like Dr. Julian Bashir , one of the stars of Deep Space Nine . In the words of Admiral Bennett, who is the positive case of Bashir, "for each Julian Bashir that may be created, there's a Khan Singh waiting in the end. "
In 2004, the Star Trek franchise recovered part of the arc from Khan in the series Star Trek: Enterprise . In the episode Borderland , Cold Station 12 and The Augments , a scientist of the century XXII , Arik Soong, revive several embryos from genetically enhanced Khan era and thus creates a new race, called "intensified" ("Augments"). The series producer, Manny Coto , described these children as "mini Khan Noonien Singhs." One of the descendants of Soong, Noonien Soong, named for his admiration for Khan, is the inventor of the android Data , B-4 and Lore.
The writer and British screenwriter James Swallow wrote a short story with an alternative story of Khan, entitled Seeds of Dissent, for the anthology Myriad Universes: Infinity's Prism, published in 2008, in this, Khan, after winning the wars eugenics and conquer States together , opens an interstellar empire, is facing the Romulans and dies at the age of 213 years. However, transplantation does his memory and personality into a computer, ruling his empire and forever. "
