Alexander? Edit

Is his first name mentioned at all in the movie? If not, this should probably be moved to Marcus (Admiral). - Mitchz95 (talk) 01:09, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

Was it in the credits? 31dot (talk) 01:16, May 21, 2013 (UTC)
Khan was the one who said he referred to marcus as Alexander Marcus so yes it was in the movie.

Yes, his first name was mentioned in the movie, by Khan. Here is the dialogue:
KIRK: “Why would a Starfleet admiral ask a 300-year-old frozen man for help?”
KHAN: “Because I am… better.”
KIRK: “At what?”
KHAN: “Everything. Alexander Marcus needed to respond to an uncivilized threat in a civilized time and for that, he needed a warrior’s mind – my mind – to design weapons and warships.”
So, there you go. :) --From Andoria with Love (talk) 05:08, June 11, 2013 (UTC)


Has Marcus been compared to any 21st century person?

I remember a Yahoo article comparing him to Dick Cheney, but given how small the article is for now I deemed a pop culture section similar to Khan and the Klingons' articles inappropriate. On the Blu-ray, the writers might compare Marcus to the Bush administration, but Weller's comparison to Curtis LeMay is here as a reminder militarism is not unique in history. --Alientraveller (talk) 10:24, May 27, 2013 (UTC)

Main Information Edit

Since when is Admiral Marcus the head of Starfleet? What happened to the President and Federation Council? Anonymous ---- 00:00, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

In the Prime universe, there was a Commander in chief of Starfleet aside from the President and the Council, so it would stand to reason there is in the alt reality too. I suggest you read the Background section of that article for some exploration of the subject you bring up. 31dot (talk) 00:03, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. I think that should be mentioned in the article in case others have the same question. I would do it myself, but I don't want to mess anything up. Anonymous -- 06:52, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

I saw the movie again yesterday, and Kirk explicitly referred to Marcus as the head of Starfleet. - Mitchz95 (talk) 17:19, June 2, 2013 (UTC)
