I don't know if I want to see that in the films.
You mean like Khan superblood?
He's an augmented human who recovers from injury quicker than normal humans as explained in "Space Seed". Blood plays a part in the healing process. What other explanation is needed?

I want to see a prequel where we learn that the real reason for Khan's strength and miracle blood is an unusually high midichlorian count.
I was wondering, what are midi-chlorians?
They're microorganisms in your blood that provide affinity to the Force. The higher your midichlorian count, the stronger you are in the Force.

In other words: Techno-babble.

In other words, trying to apply a biological explanation to what was supposed to be a religious/spiritual concept, which is an incredibly stupid idea.

That's a problem with internet comment threads generally, though, and is not in any way peculiar to Trek sites. If one prefers to avoid negative comments, it's best just to skip the comment threads.
The anonymous have been hating on the Pope for several days now. Further proof that the internet is the instrument of Satan.

An energy field generated by biological life, actually. The ability to manipulate said energy field was known to be something inherited from one's parents back in 1983. The biological aspect is nothing new, just another fact that fans like to ignore when it suits their purposes.

Re: how do people feel about robert orci and Kurtzmen returning?

I wonder if a transfusion of a Jedi master to someone without midichlorians will mean the recipient will become a Jedi? If that doesn't work then perhaps a bone marrow transplant?

Maybe they could extract midichlorians from the blood and sell it in Jedi tablets ? Become a Jedi for 9.99?

Since there is an explanation right in my post, from the episode that introduced Khan, "none" does not apply.

What? That blood brought a tribble back to life.

According to the experiments of one Hego Damask, the answer appears to be no.

Blood is a key element in the healing process, even in normal humans.

1) Khan has remarkable recuperative abilities. They say so in "Space Seed". He brings himself back from near death.

MCCOY: Maybe. Heart beat dropping.
KIRK: Circuit shorting.
SCOTT: Probably some dust.
MCCOY: Heartbeat now thirty, dropping fast. It's a heart flutter. He's dying.
KIRK: Bones?
MCCOY: He'll live.
KIRK: My compliments.
MCCOY: No, I'm good, but not that good. There's something inside this man that refuses to accept death. Look at that. Even as he is now, his heart valve action has twice the power of yours and mine. Lung efficiency is fifty percent better.
(McGivers enters)
KIRK: An improved breed of human. That's what the Eugenics War was all about.
MCCOY: I'd estimate he could lift us both with one arm. It will be interesting to see if his brain matches his body.
2) The little girl in act one is saved by Khan's blood.

3) The tribble is brought back to life by Khan's blood.

Connect the dots.

Go watch "The Neutral Zone" from season one of TNG. The Federation cured death in the Trek universe way back in 1987.
