Peter, are you refering to the "Space Seed" episode with Ricardo Montalban in
the original series?  Though it was reprised in WRATH OF KHAN (Star Trek II),
it was in the episode that Khan alludes to Milton ("Better to reign in hell
than serve in heaven").  In the movie, Khan quotes more from Melville, albeit
in a Miltonic mood.
