Khan Noonien Singh (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)
After the first Star Trek movie kind of flopped, someone in the idea department got smart and found a great villain for the sequel: Ricardo Montalban. First seen in a 1967 episode called "Space Seed," Montalban's Khan was one of the genetically-engineered Human Augments. After marooning the crew of the Reliant on Ceti Alpha V, Khan sought out Admiral Kirk to have his revenge for leaving him there in the first place. Khan's encyclopedic knowledge and thirst for vengeance is what makes him so memorable.
