Mr. Spock faced something worse than the wrath of khan on Thursday: the wrath of Congress.
khan looks youthful—even at 29, she seems like a teen—peeking out from underneath chunky bangs and wrinkling her button nose.
khan, who rarely interrupts, puts his hand on his chin and leans forward.
c.1400, from Turkic, literally "lord, prince," contraction of khaqan "ruler, sovereign." Known in Europe since 13c., cf. Latin chanis, Greek kanes, Old French chan.
