    Plucked out of time by the Molten Rock Guys

    Colonel Phillip Green was a despotic militia leader on Earth in the 21st century during World War III. Green, known for his motto: "Overwhelm and devastate", was notorious for striking at his enemies during treaty negotiations. (TOS: "The Savage Curtain")

    During the war, Green led a faction of violent eco-terrorists whose actions led to the death of some 37 million people. (ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II", display graphic).

    Barely two years after a cease-fire had ended the war, he ordered the euthanasia of hundreds of thousands of radiation sickened Humans so they would not pass on mutations to future generations. Green outlined his rationale by speaking to a crowd about how they must "reject the impure and cast it out".

      It'd be a way to hearken back to the Bad Old Days without recycling Khan.

      And ultimately we're just entertaining ourselves here with our ruminations.

      Really, any of the suggestions would be full of win. :)

      when they came up with Colonel Green.

      What if this is the guy who ordered the mass murders on the planet where Kirk was a child? ("Conscience of the King," I think, is the name of the TOS episode.)

        Except in the altered timeline Kirk's never there.

        So... he's still off doing Shakespeare in the stars, covering up for his even crazier daughter's craziness...
