Someone in Concord must be a real big Star Trek fan.

In honor of actor William Shatner’s upcoming visit to Concord for a question-and-answer session and hosted screening of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, the city of Concord has proclaimed next Friday as KHAN!CORD Day (lol):

Shatner famously played Capt. James T. Kirk of the starship USS Enterprise in the Star Trek TV series (and, later, movies). But one scene in particular quickly became the stuff of legends: His screaming of KHAAAAAAAAN! in Star Trek II. (In the movie, Kirk and his crew chase the evil Khan Noonien Singh, aka Khan, through space.)

Live long and prosper, Concord. 🖖
