Both of the Star Trek films featuring Khan, Captain Kirk’s worst enemy, explore the consequences of egoist versus altruist views. In Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan , we learn that Khan’s murderous anger towards humanity is partly a result of Captain Kirk’s earlier action of marooning Khan and his people on a then hospitable planet—which later suffered an environmental disaster killing most of Khan’s people. This is a clear illustration of the ethical egoist’s claim that trying to act in others’ interests may be immoral. Furthermore, Kirk’s failure to check up on Khan on the planet suggests that Kirk was not really acting altruistically, but rather egoistically, supporting the views of psychological egoism. Meanwhile, Khan believes that he has a natural right to dominate, based on his superior intellect and strength, a view commonly associated with rational egoism and Ayn Rand. Of course in the end, Mr. Spock demonstrates altruism by sacrificing himself to save the rest of the Enterprise crew, repeating an idea clearly meant to prove that altruism is more rational than egoism—“the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”
