Also with Khan being such a threat it would seem that at the least Chekov & Star Fleet would have remembered where Kirk had dropped Khan off and it wouldn't have been such a surprise. Why did they not just beam up from inside the containers, you do not have to go outside to beam up...also, when you do go outside and see those figures why would you not beam up then? Why did the earwigs make the captain and Chekov only take orders from Khan? They should have been susceptible to suggestions from anyone, which means they would not just turn "bad" and do Khan's bidding.
Even though I had Khan in my list, yes, there are some stupid things about it as you pointed out. And Chekov never met Khan because Space Seed was in season 1 of TOS, and Chekov arrived in season 2.
But I still love it because of its history in eugenics, and the genesis device being able to rearrange matter into new life, and it is a good kick-ass revenge story all wrapped up into Trek.
