    Real Martok still bled red whenever he cut himself.

    Then Maybe he was an anti-Tyler, IE a human transformed into a Klingon to spy on them... (J/K)

    When Soran struck B'Etor, her blood seemed about the same color as human blood.

    Yeah, I know, the only time ever when we see that pink blood is in the movie.

    Minor spoiler...
    ...but we saw it in the background on DSC Season 2, too...in the same shot as red Klingon blood. Alien diversity?

    It would be nice to have alien diversity. Nice catch!

    I think it was...
    ...when Georgiou came through the wall and zapped a bunch of Klingons to save the Chancellor and Tyler. In the splashes of blood, multiple colors could be identified.

    I'll be sure to look for it the next time I watch that episode.

    I'm looking through screenshots of the episode in question, "Point of Light," and I'm not sure I'm finding it. There's this: https://dsc.star-trek.info/thumbnails.php?album=26&page=83
    The color doesn't look quite like in TUC, to my eye. It's more of a magenta.

    Pity it wasn't ultraviolet, requiring a special flashlight to see. Now that would open up a lot of plot possibilities! :D

    Klingons have two types of blood, one pink, one red.





    ...because they have to have 2.
