If can find it there is a book out there. "To Seek Out New Life" The Biology of Star trek by Athena Andreadis, Ph.D.

maybe the klingons genetically modified their blood to be more iron based or something. who knows. they had ridges. then no ridges. then ridges again. they had pink blood. then red blood. They should've stuck to pink blood.

"take us out"...

This is slightly off-topic but there was an episode in TNG where a Klingon died and Worf and all the Klingon guy's mates did this big scene about sending him off to the gods or something.

Was this ever repeated when other Klingons died?



Yes worf did it when alexanders mom died, when jadzia died and when gawron died

they also did it in the Klingon RPG computer game they put out years ago.

If that is the case then it may have something to do with the augment retrovirus was created back during Enterprise.

The "avoid the R-rating" answer is teh correct one.

I always figured that the zero-g environment had an impact on the blood or something.

Again, not something to really be concerned with. It's one of 1,000 inconsistencies associated with Star Trek.

It was rated PG. Would changing the pink blood to red made it skip the PG13 rating and go straight to R?

I honestly have no idea. I don't work for the MPAA. But, it's fairly well-documented (in at least 2 books I own) that this is a fact.
