Indeed, silly poll.

About Khan, he'd only work if they either changed a lot of parameters e.g. no sleeper ship or focused on the eugenics part IMO.
But it's not like Trek has not already explored the theme in-depth: two Khan stories, another Augment story, Kodos, Colonel Green and with his "student" Paxdon we have even see the transition from eugenics to xenophobia, or in other terms the revelation that the underlying thinking is both times fascistic and racist.
What more is there to tell?
