I see Nick Meyer's Trek as something separate from every other vision of Trek. Did pink Klingon blood bother you?
The pink blood wasn't Meyer's vision; it was a compromise he had to make to avoid an R rating. Given how gore-soaked TWOK was, he clearly didn't have a problem with red blood. But the microgravity blood drops floating around in TUC were too shocking for the MPAA, so the only way they'd give it a PG rating was if he changed it to a less bloodlike color.
