Half of Earths population dies in the Eugenics wars ITTL’s Trek? Wow. Of course Gene Roddenberry isn’t going to go for that! I think the Khan series is interesting but wouldn’t most of it take place on Earth before Khan goes on the Botany Bay?The year is 2001. Earth is struggling to recover from the devastating Eugenics wars which have left over 3 billion dead. Khan Noonien Singh and his followers have escaped from the planet and have fled across the galaxy to escape justice.
What is left of Starfleet and the UFP have put together a team of enforcers to track Khan down and either execute him or bring him to justice. To do so Starfleet has built a one of its kind ship. A dedicated combat class cruiser equipped with the latest defensive and offensive technology. The USS Defiant.
