Star trek wrath of khan directors cut rerelease

I saw the release, of Star trek 2 the wrath of Khan
the directors cut. It’s held up over the years.
my only problem with it is what’s always been
for me. The character of Chekov did not
appear in the original star trek episode
Space seed . So I never understand how he
can remember khan.:neutral_face:

The explanation I’ve heard is that Chekov was on board, just not one of the bridge crew yet. There are hundreds of crew on the Enterprise, so its entirely possible that the two met, its just not shown in the episode.

You have a point.
