The Star Trek movies have (with rare exception) usually featured a special guest villain, and this trend has continued into the Kelvin Timeline era. Nero, John Harr---Khan, and Krall have all faced off against the new cast of Captain Kirk and the Enterprise, and this week on Standard Orbit hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore discuss and rank them.

Was Nero just another Khan rehash or something more? Would John Harr---Khan been better off had has indeed merely been John Harrison? As the only one of the three not to get a fleshed out backstory in the Star Trek expanded universe of books and comics, is Krall ripe for more exploration as a character? All this on this week's Standard Orbit, boldly listen!
