Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]
I think McCoy got the cryo tube to preserve Kirk in readiness for the transfusion? If so they could wait hours even years to get the blood because he is in suspended animation, long enough to get some blood from mr augment.
I might be wrong, but I doubt you can keep someone in suspended animation once he's dead. There is nothing left to keep animated, is there?
