They probably could, but the Hive mind is powerful and I'd imagine the first instinct of a synapse-less 'nid near a pariah would be to kill them.

The HH short story book notes that despite being filled with Sisters of Silence the Black Ships still need a Geller field, so no.

They didn't when he was alive, so I doubt it.

There's no reason not too, unless the blank/pariah gene messes with any of the organs, but that seems very unlikely.

Of course I can't be sure about any of my answers- blanks/pariahs are rather a vague thing, for example what is the differences between them? Are there different strengths of them? What would happen if a physic power was used to say throw a projectile at them from out of their blank range? Basically I don't think anyone knows very much about blanks and pariahs for certain.
