Part of what makes Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan such a compelling film is its incredible design and clever visuals — and these VFX storyboards, taken from the film's Blu-ray release, show the genesis (no pun intended) of some of the most arresting shots.

These storyboards come via the indispensible TrekCore — there are tons more over at the site, but we just wanted to share some of the most brilliant.

I'm convinced that Wrath of Khan is the apex of all things Star Trek. Without it, the franchise would have died on the vine. Think about it. It was such a turn around from ST:TMP, which did little to bring new fans or new life into the franchise. It's popularity spawned two 'sequels' (III and IV) probably helped launch TNG.
