Nah genetic material can't be transmitted through non-canonical books.
"Whoever" is @DavidAGoodman, and he's a member here. His profile says that he hasn't posted in a while, but maybe he'll be kind enough to answer this question for us.
As a kid I just found it odd, that the president not even once called someone a dumbass.
That 70's Show was still seven years in Kurtwood Smith's future. At the time he was still best known as Clarence Boddicker from Robocop.
I never mistook the Prez for a Klingon, but I also never realized he was blind 'til it was pointed out to me. So, y'know.
Never confused me, and I've loved that movie since childhood. When it comes down to it, a great deal of Star Trek aliens are bumpy headed variations.
I really liked the president, and the callback to ST:IV
Yes, one of my favourite lines from TUC is: "This president is NOT above the law!", which was a clear homage to Boddicker. I laughed out loud when I heard that on opening day.
Blind? How do you figure that?
I didn't figure it at all, that's just apparently the intention of the filmmakers. (Presumably his glasses work somewhat like Geordi's VISOR.)
Where did you hear that?
I honestly can't recall where I heard it for the first time, but MemAlpha says it came up on the DVDs Okuda text commentary. So either there, or someone else who mentioned it here.
It's backstage notes that Efrosians are either blind of have very poor eyesight due to the conditions on their homeworld. The silvery-haired aid see at Khitomer was meant to lead him around and I think there was a deleted scene that showed this.
The Saratoga helmsman didn't seem to be blind...
He does do a lot of staring though.
Obviously the Efrosians weren't affected by the Augment virus then, or were they?
