    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. :techman:

    Good point. Wonder why Beverly, Phlox, Bashir and The Doctor never used it?

    Because anything to do with genetic engineering has been banned on Earth since 1996?

    The tribble wasn't frozen in a cryo tube.
