Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Khhhhhaaaaannnn! Today’s pic is pretty damn great if I don’t say so myself. From the set of Wrath of Khan we see a crew member making sure poor Walter Koenig’s wires are working well for what I presume is the moment when Khan grabs that weird little handle on the front of his space suit and demonstrates his awesome (obviously pectoral-originated) strength by lifting the little Russian dude up in the air with but one hand.
Many things about this photo make me smile, but the top two things are that one of Khan’s men (far right) seems to be making fun of Koenig and (secondly) Koenig doesn’t seem too happy about the situation he's in. In fact, if I were more driven I would try to make a “Chekov is not impressed” meme.
Thanks again to the good folks at the Practical Effects Group for bringing this one to my attention. Click to enlargen!

Tomorrow’s pic comes from another sci-fi flick with the number 2 in the title.
