I'm pretty sure the only reason why it was purple in that movie was for that one scene at the end when the klingon assassin gets killed and has red blood giving away that he was really human.

There was red blood on Worf's face, unless it was someone else's, (which would be really gross...)

I almost missed that little detail, fortunately, I upgraded to blueray for my HD

Again you see it when she wipes some on his lip. Yuck. No, it;s not from his hand and palm, you see it with no cut or blood.

Every writer/director has they own ideas on what's canon and what's not. Same with games.
I forgot about that one !

TUC is literally the odd man out when it comes to Klingons having pink blood.

Yeah, but that reason doesn't exactly provide an in-universe explanation...

Nope. That scene was not even IN the theatrical cut, only the video and DVD versions

The reason were the scenes on the Klingon cruiser with people getting blown to pieces.
You can't do that in a PG movie and show red blood.

Look at the back wall behind Kirk, there's the company logo for the yogurt advertising sauce.

Assuming you need one for this...well one that has been tossed around is that Klingon blood has a different colour in zero-g.
Doesn't really make sense IMO because then it should've changed back by the time gravity was restored...unless by then it had already congealed in combination with the oxygen to a point where it couldn't revert to its natural colour.

Another I just came up with is that at that time of the 6th movie the artificial atmosphere in Klingons ships was different from the one on the homeworld and that there was something in the atmosphere that caused the change in colour.
We know divers use an airmix different from what we usually breathe on the surface, maybe this is similar.
But possibly this airmix was no longer in use by time of Star Trek 7, explaining why B'etor's blood had looked red.

Possibly Colonel Worf was still able to tell Col West's blood apart from Klingon blood not because of colour but because of constency he did not say "this is not Klingon blood" until after he'd touched it.

I believe this explanation should cover the entire mess at least somewhat.

I bet it's one of those things Klingons don't like to talk about, like the cranial ridges (and lack of them).
