The film, Undiscovered Country had Klingon blood as a purplish color.  But when Enterprise took Klang back home, when the "klingon-in-charge" cut Klang's hand to retrieve the message, the blood was red.


Any thoughts to this?

The only problem there is what happened with Klang took place before the experimentation with human augment DNA took place.  But, knowing me, I could be over-analyzing it all. LOL

I think the powers behind Enterprise were just using their artistic license.  Personally, I always thought the "Pepto-Bismol" blood from Undiscovered Country looked kind of silly coming out of the bad-ass Klingons.

Well, while in ZERO G's (and some time after), klingon blood is pink, and in 1 or more G's, its red. (If the sorse I red from IS canon

If that is the case, then they made a huge mistake.  They could have simply had the  weapons not draw blood.  If they wanted to show off the behavior of liquid in zero G, they could have just used whatever other liquids would have been present such as beverages, which would have avoided the continuity issue entirely.

Had a source.


It was well reported back in the day in both Trek magazines and Star log from what I remember.The only thing I can find right now about it is at wiki


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek_VI:_The_Undiscovered_Country#Effects


The effects artist looked at NASA footage of floating globules of water to inform the physics of the blood particles. Initially, the blood was to be colored green, but the filmmakers realized that McCoy had referred to Spock as green-blooded. The final color was violet, a color Meyer disliked but had to go ahead with, because his first choice—red—would almost certainly earn the film an "R" rating from the MPAA.[

Wow, thank you. I had never heard of that.
