If Deckard is a replicant does he have a 4 year life span or were special Blade Runner replicants designed?

Hooray! Another 'Deck is Rep' thread!


Erm, Rachael didn't have an expiry date (she was 'special') and so it's possible that Deckard didn't have one either.

I also seem to remember reading that J.F. donated his DNA to the Nexus 6 project - they wanted his defective genes; his 'accelerated decrepitude'.

But, we could push this thread slightly off-topic by asking 'Would a replicant, that hasn't got an expiry date, age like a human?'

Personally, I would say yes, they would die eventually as they have the same organic parts that a human has.

I think so too, they would probably live a bit longer though.

I was always under the impression that very few replicants actually had expiry dates. I thought this was a concept introduced with the Nexus 6. Because they were begining to develop their own emotions, which would make them difficult to detect as a replicant. SO the 4 year life span was a safety mechanism. This is the impression i got from the conversation Byrant had with Deckard

deckard is a replicant,because his eyes glow red during the scene in his apartment, where he is standing behind Rachel.
Also in the directors cut, the memory implant of the unicorn backs this up. :shock:

"you're talkin about memories!"
