Uh-huh. So they’ve just eliminated death forever.
Kirk was dead for many, many minutes of radiation poisoning, right? He gets injected with Khan’s blood —
A synthesized version of it.
— even better. So what wouldn’t Khan’s blood fix? Decapitation, but most other mortal wounds? Poisons? Phaser blasts, I bet. Certainly most other illnesses and cancers and such. And probably aging, at leats to an extent. So basically Bones has discovered the secret to eternal life, and not only will no one on the Enterprise ever need to die again unless their body is somehow destroyed, but all of the civilization — heck, probably galactic civilization – will be irrevocably changed because of this amazing discovery.
Uh, I don’t think so. I think they just save Kirk and then forget about it.
