Well so long as the number of chromosomes matched it should work, I mean that may not even be a factor. Im no geneticist, but I think that would be an issue.

If anyone has an Orion Slave Girl, Klingon, or Trill female sitting around, send em over and Ill definitely let you know!

I think he's talking about the time Trip stuck his fingers in the magic pebbles with Armadillo girl and he got preggers, which prevented the Klingons from killing everyone because they were laughing their frakking @$$es off. ¿:honorable: ¿:laugh: ¿:p ¿:D ¿:cool:

I remember T'Pol being very judgemental towards Trip in that episode

gul dukat's daughter zeul was half cardassian and half bajorian

This is the only one I can reasonably believe, however, was attained without medical intervention. That is, it's hard to believe that a Cardassian Gul and his Bajoran mistress would INTENTIONALLY have a child--look what Ziyal's life was like. Moreover, I thought there were mentions of other such hybrid children who were refugees of the conflict.

And yet it seems the unlikeliest of species for the easy-conception scenario. Perhaps proximity in space speaks to some ancestral connection...

Lucifer pretty much nailed the plot resolve on that episode, all right. Then Trip had to spend 3 hours or more with them in Decompression or whatever and again on the way back, putting up with the smell and with their no-doubt very cruel verbal abuses and ridicule for his situation.

But that brings to mind another pertinent point: the Klingons themselves were not particularly suprised at an accidental inter-species pregnancy, which suggests it does in fact happen around the galaxy sometimes, when a guy (or female Xyrillian) is particularly randy and careless.

The way hybrids appear all over Star Trek, it seems ridiculously easy. Which is weird. But so are a lot of Star Trek things.

When I saw this topic, my brain immediately started trying to make a list of all the hybrids I could actually recall from the shows. Some of the main ones that jumped out at me are:

Klingon/Human: 4 examples that I could think of. Alexander's mother was 1/2, Alexander was 1/4, B'Elanna was 1/2, and B'Elanna's daughter was 1/4. So, not only hybrids, but hybrids that are NOT STERILE. Very odd, when you consider what tends to be the norm for hybrid animals right here on Earth.

Klingon/Romulan: At that secret colony Worf found, there was at least one example of this. I can't recall if there was more than one.

Klingon/Betazoid/Human: In an alternate reality, Worf and Deanna had a daughter and a son that were 1/2 Klingon and 1/4 each Human and Betazoid.

Betazoid/Human: Deanna Troi, of course.

Romulan/Human: Tasha Yar's daughter, Sela.

Cardassian/Bajoran: Gul Dukat's daughter, Ziyal, and also his second child that he had while leading that cult thing. Now, if you ask me, this might be more of a case of Dukat and his amazing Bajoran-impregnating super-sperm. :whatthe: LOL!

Anyway, those were just the ones I thought were really interesting.

That's a good point; I hadn't thought about that. :)

But it's the 24th century! That's got to help with inter species procreation.
