That's it.

Any way you cut it, its pretty lame.
Khan's original plan is pretty lame. Khan thought his crew was dead though when he had the "archive" blown up. Like DNA-1842 said Khan only found out his crew may still be alive was after Sulu sent the message to him and that was the only reason Khan surrendered.
