Khan Noonian Singh has passed.

Ricardo Montalban, the Mexican-born actor who became a star in splashy MGM musicals and later the wish-fulfilling Mr. Roarke in TV’s “Fantasy Island,” died Wednesday morning at his home, a Los Angeles city councilman said. He was 88.

[...]

Montalban had been a star in Mexican movies when MGM brought him to Hollywood in 1946. He was cast in the leading role opposite Esther Williams in “Fiesta.” He also starred with the swimming beauty in “On an Island with You” and “Neptune’s Daughter.”

[...]

A later generation knew Montalban as the faintly mysterious, white-suited Mr. Roarke, who presided over an island resort where visitors were able to fulfill their lifelong dreams. “Fantasy Island” received high ratings for most of its 1978-1984 span on ABC television and still appears in reruns.

And in between, Trekkers like yours truly knew him as the genetically-enhanced prince/ruler of the “Eastern Coalition”, Khan Noonian Singh, who escaped on the SS Botany Bay, and was later found by Kirk’s Enterprise, banished by Ceti Alpha V, rediscovered and ultimately destroyed by Kirk.

The Realm™ extends condolences to his family.  Not many actors were finer in their craft, and he will be sorely missed.
