How Khan joined the Tourney
Khan makes his introductory appearance in the episode Space Seed, first broadcast on February 16, 1967. According to the backstory revealed in the episode, Khan is one of a group of genetically engineered super-humans, bred to be free of the usual human mental and physical limitations, who were removed from power after the Eugenics Wars of the 1990s. Khan had been both the most successful conqueror and the most benign ruler of the group, ruling more than a quarter of the Earth's area across Asia to the Middle East from 1992 to 1996 with a firm but generally peaceful hand until he was deposed. While most of the supermen were killed or sentenced to death, Khan and 84 others escaped Earth by way of the sleeper ship SS Botany Bay. The Botany Bay is discovered by the crew of the Enterprise in 2267, with Khan and 72 of the 84 crew members of the Botany Bay still alive, cryogenically frozen in suspended animation.
