    One thing I noticed in DS9 is the color of the Klingon blood is red, not the pepto-bismol pink that was such a main point of Star Trek 6. I'm wondering if this will be corrected in the TNG Blu-Rays if and when Klingons show up.

    I would hope not... Star Trek Klingon the game used the pepto-bismol pink.... even with Gowron's intensity and crazy eyes, seeing him holding a pink stained dagger was just silly.

    No, it won't. Plus, Klingons had been shown to have red blood before ST6 made it pink, so ST6 is the one at fault.

    ST6 had the pink blood integrated into the story and dialogue, so that was a proper retcon. It's was no longer just about visual continuity.

    Nice pink silliness.

    At least it wasn't green... That would be confusing.

    It was only pink in ST6 to keep the MPAA off their backs. Trek is inconsistent often, get used to it. :lol:

    While were at it. Why is your user name so green-ish?

    Yeah, but it's actually integrated into the story, so it's not JUST because of the rating.

    It was only integrated in the home release. In the theatrical version it wouldn't have mattered what color it was. :)

    Perhaps because he's changed his username, he used to be Captain M. :shifty:

    Even if they were so inclined, I would think making the correction would be technological hurdle on a limited time and budget.

    I suppose they should make them all smooth-headed while they're at it.
