ON February 16, 1967, NBC aired episode #22 of the original Star Trek series. The title of that well-known, ground-breaking episode was “Space Seed”, and it introduced the world to a genetically enhanced super-human known as Khan Noonien Singh.Fifteen years later, Paramount Pictures would re-introduce Singh to a much wider audience in a film called “Star Trek II – The Wrath of Khan”.
Both the original “Space Seed” episode and the subsequent film starred popular Latin-American actor, Ricardo Montalban, as the determined Khan, and while many comedians have lampooned Montalban’s portrayal of an aging superman, the film is considered classic Trek. But is there more to it?
Khan Noonien Singh’s name is interesting for a start. The character, we’re told, came from the Punjab region of northern India. Singh is a Hindi word based on an ancient Sanskrit word Simha which means ‘lion’, and it’s a surname associated with the Sikh religious sect, often given to a male child once he becomes a member. Khan of course reminds of of the infamous Ghengis Khan, who forged a Eurasian empire from blood. As for his middle name, it’s interesting to note that the scientist who invented (some may say ‘created’) Data from the Next Generation series and films, was named Dr. Noonien Soong. Are Trek fans to make a connection that moved from supermen to superandroids?
According to the backstory of Space Seed, a eugenics war began in 1992, when a group of genetically enhanced men and women seized power in 40 nations simultaneously. Of the group, Khan proved the most ambitious and dangerous. Not satisfied to rule one quarter of the world (Southeast Asia plus most of the Middle East), Khan set his sites on ruling the entire earth. By 1996, outraged citizens rose up and defeated the supertyrants (The Eugenics War). Khan and 84 of his fellow enhanced beings stole a ‘sleeper ship’ and put themselves into cryonic freeze — only to be ‘found’ 300 years later by James T. Kirk.
Yes, but all of this is fiction, you say. Why would Gene Roddenberry encode Star Trek with globalist messages? Evidence suggests that Roddenberry’s circle included a group that hovered around Andrija Puharich. This counter-culture group set up “Lab Nine” (Deep-Space 9?) at Ossining, New York to falicitate contact with a group of so-called ascended masters called “The Nine”. In fact, Roddenberry spent an entire summer writing a script for a film to be called “The Nine”. What makes this especially creepy is that Aleister Crowley once wrote: “I serve my great master Satan and the august Council of Nine.”
How does this connect to Khan Noonien Singh and globalism? Consider that the roots of the modern globalist agenda are long and deep and reach back all the way to Babylon — and even earlier. Soon after Adam and Eve fell victim to the serpent’s lies, their progeny filled the world. At that time, civilization centered in one landmass, possibly a land mass before the break-up of the continental plates. Regardless of geologic parameters, this concentrated group of humans were being watched. Modern science would like us to believe that our ‘watchers’ then and now are — at best — advanced space aliens (space seeders — and you can bet the connection to Star Trek’s episode #22 is deliberate). However, God tells us that these ‘watchers’ were what we call angels. Since the word angel means messenger, it’s a poor way of describing these creatures.
Genesis 6 tells us that the Watchers observed human females and found them beautiful. New Age believers might say what followed was an evolutionary leap — human and angel hybridization yielding ‘super-humans’ known as the Nephilim. These genetically different humans grew to become giants — both physically and mentally — and before long, all of mankind worshiped them as gods. The Lord of lords looked down upon this and found the rampant idolatry of such hybrid beings sinful and rebellious. He searched for one man who might still bear the original genome of humanity — and He found one: Noah. Genesis tells us that Noah was perfect in his generations. From Noah’s descendents, a Savior of mankind could still be born. God closed the door to the ark He’d taught Noah to build, and then sent a flood to purify the earth.Noah’s family multiplied many times through the subsequent years, and soon towns sprang up, followed by great cities.
However, the angelic watchers still gazed after the beautiful women of the earth, and before too long, interbreeding recommenced. In the heart of the region called Uruk (modern Iraq), a man named Nimrod claimed to be part angel. His “kingdom” comprised Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar, otherwise known as the land of Nimrod (Gen. 10:8–10; Chronicles 1:10, Micah 5:6). It is Nimrod who is credited with building the “Tower of Babel”. Nimrod, the mighty hunter (and perhaps the foundation of the Osiris stories), unified the majority of the world into one, and God did not like it. This time however, because He had promised Noah to refrain from further floods, God chose to divide the earth by confusing the languages. This schism sorted the world into regions, and eventually into countries.
Jesus told us that the last days would be similar to the days of Noah. Can we see this theme in today’s globalist agenda? And is it reflected in Star Trek? Certainly, today’s glut of television programs and films centering on enhanced human DNA and post-human societies reveal a cultural desire to be more than we are. Yet, such science has moved out of fictional realms into reality. One can hardly open a newspaper or read an online news source without finding reports that laud trans-human experimentation and cloning. We strive to eliminate disease, improve brain function, and — in essence — jumpstart mankind into the next ‘evolutionary leap’. The Age of Aquarius is upon us, and humanity is changing.
Is it possible, then, that somewhere in a secret laboratory, a genetic scientist is using a ‘Watcher’ recipe to mix up a batch of supermen and superwomen? When I first watched “Space Seed” back in 1967, I considered it fiction. Now, I see it as prophecy. Singh, like his real-life forebear Nimrod, craved control and kingship. His genetic superiority convinced him that only through his guidance could mankind continue.Do globalists see themselves in a similiar light?
Singh and his companions took control in 1992. In 1991, George H. W. Bush, 41st president of the United States, made the following statement:
Until now, the world we’ve known has been a world divided – a world of barbed wire and concrete block, conflict and cold war. Now, we can see a new world coming into view. A world in which there is the very real prospect of a new world order. In the words of Winston Churchill, a “world order” in which “the principles of justice and fair play … protect the weak against the strong …” A world where the United Nations, freed from cold war stalemate, is poised to fulfil the historic vision of its founders. A world in which freedom and respect for human rights find a home among all nations.
A New World Order? A world of freedom and respect for human rights exists among all nations? A Star Trek fan would instantly recognize these ideals as those of the United Federation of Planets. This same one-world, one-galaxy, one-universe, philosophy that took root at Babel has grown into an insideous little tree that will soon canopy over our world, our Earth. Consider the oft-repeated backbone phrase from Star Trek II, The Wrath of Khan: “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few — or the one.” To illustrate this, Spock, a counterbalance to Khan, offered up his life in a messianic manner (he’s resurrected in “Star Trek III – The Search for Spock”). Today, you and I are being asked to offer up our individual rights for collective rights. The one out of many philosophy — e pluribus unum — reduces you and me to supportive elements; cogs in the machine.
But a one world government? Impossible, you say. Even the globalists would never imagine such a ridiculous plan. One governing body for 6 billion people? The United States, Canada, and Mexico are merging into one superstate, similar to the European Union. Once regional superstates emerge, how long before these two combine into one conglomerate, based on the Military-Industrial-Economic model that currently runs individual developed nations?
Does Khan Singh exist in our modern day world? The Bible predicted such a man long ago — there in the pages of old testament prophets such as Daniel, you’ll read about a coming ‘Man of Sin’. In Revelation, John calls him “The Beast”. Most of us know him as “AntiChrist”. But no matter what you call him, you can bet that he’s coming. Soon.
When God destoyed the earth during Noah’s time, He used a flood, saving Noah and his family and the animals within an ark of God’s design. Khan Nunnien Singh and his fellow superhumans fled destruction of their world in a space ship. This ‘space seed’ would awaken when the world was ready for superhuman leaders. Are globalists preparing our world to accept a superhuman ruler? As a teenager studying scripture, I wondered how the peoples of earth would ever accept the restraints of dictatorship within the iron fist of a coming AntiChrist. Now, forty years later, I see a world that would eagerly accept such a man if he provided what the nations clamor for — the greatest prize of all — the gift Singh claimed he had given to an ungrateful earth — the gift of Peace and Security. And then — the end shall come.
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. – I Thes. 5:2,3
Are you ready? Do you know Jesus Christ as personal savior? Or do you look for a coming superman – perhaps from space – or from science to save mankind from utter destruction. God foresaw the end from the beginning. He loved you and me before we were even conceived — loved us enough to die for for us. For me. For you. For all mankind.Now’s the time to accept Christ. For tomorrow is promised to no one.
