Star Trek: Generations - This Is Not Klingon Blood-Worf (TUC)
In The Undiscovered Country we find out that Klingon blood is Purple, however when Soran punches Lursa, or Be'thor...i forget which, she is bleeding RED Blood. Now either shes not a Klingon, or she has some kinda anatomy problem.

Try this approach: the affect of zero gravity and the environmental sabotage upon the Klingon vessel resulted in the discoloration -- much like human blood is blu-ish without oxygen. Klingon blood is, in fact more red in its natural state -- as seen in any other Star Trek episode (TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT) or movie. The real explanation that carries the most weight ... though apparently not good enough for many Trekkers & Trekkies ... producers wanted the PG rating. Sorry -- it is what it is.

Lot's of people point out the pepto bismol blood in ST VI as opposed to the red blood that has been pumped out of klingons elsewhere. The producers of the movie made the blood pink so they could keep their pg rating. as far as explaining this in the context of the ST Universe -- Why can't the Klingon Empire consist of two or more races that look similar but have different blood colors? The Federation consists of dozens of human looking races that did not originate on earth.

> The producers of the movie made the blood pink so they could keep their PG rating. Let's sum that up (politely) - wrong. In Star Trek VI, there was a pool of red blood coming out of the dead "Klingon" at the end (Colonel West), AND in the Klingon ship shootout earlier in the movie, a Klingon's arm is shot off - pink blood or not, that's violent. > As far as explaining this in the context of the ST Universe - Why can't the Klingon Empire consist of two or more races that look similar but have different blood colors? Because they are KLINGONS. Hence the name: "KLINGON EMPIRE". One race, no more. > The Federation consists of dozens of human looking races that did not originate on earth. Yes, but it doesn't validate your previous point. The "Federation" is not a single race, it is actually the "United Federation of Planets", an alliance. Easy :)

Klingons. One race, one blood color. The red blood isn't a mistake because it was done on purpose. One could surmise that the change that made the Klingons have bumpy heads starting in ST:TMP was still taking place on a deeper level (internally) in Klingons. However, the new series will TOTALLY screw that theory up by using bumpy-headed Klingons.

Tnkewnke- You are right about #5, wrong about #6. 5 is basically about as valid as any Star Trek book.. in other words its crap. Star Trek 6, on the other hand is completely valid, and so the red blood in Generations was a mistake.

Yea, I know about the way they changed everything in TNG. I mean, what in the heck happened to the Klingons anyway. Remember when DS9 went back in time with Worf and Julian, and Miles (and a few others) and they asked Worf what happened to the Klingons? He never answered. And I thought that was hilarious. But they changed so many things from TOS to TNG. And I don't think it was just the post-Roddenberry thing, because Worf looked like that when Gene was still directing it.

Star Treks 5 and 6 are considered to be non-canon or apocryphal. They don't really fit into the "real" trek universe
