That famous moment from Wrath of Khan is now in claymation
Khan even pursued Kirk into the stop-motion universe!

It was the KHAAAAN heard 'round the world. Even people who have never watched an episode of Star Trek know about it, due to the way this scene has been shared, memed, referenced and parodied over the years. In Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Khan (Ricardo Montalbán), the superhuman last seen in the Original Series episode "Space Seed," has leveled up in villany over the years and now has stranded Kirk and co. on a dead, empty planet. As he details how Kirk will die abandoned and alone, Kirk shakes with anger and finally lets loose with his infamous cry: "KHAAAAN!"
This scene has been recreated in a lot of different ways since the 1982 movie. But this might be the first time it's being shown in claymation.
Dust, a new streaming service, brought the scene to life in stop-motion as a way to promote their platform. While the clip itself is only a few seconds long, the amount of detail (they even nailed Kirk's lip quivering in rage!) means that the production involved a lot of time and shots.
Take a look at Admiral James T. Kirk in claymation glory. You can even see clay McCoy in the background!
