Re: What would a half-Andorian, half-Vulcan child look like?

it might even be possible for an XZ child to have gotten his X from his XW parent.

I'm not a big fan of the 4 gendered idea. It seemed a bit contrived to me.
IIRC, we noticed in the previous long discussion that the Andorian zhavey (birth mother) doesn't actually contribute genetic information. However, she's the one with the lifetime bond with her offspring, while the others often drift away, so it could be hormones from her own system that affects the foetus, which had received genetic information only from the other three parents.

I'd like to see that discussion. Any clue what it was called?
I just Googled "xxxx andorian therin" and found two old threads:

I said: If so many ST races can interbreed, why ever can't Bajorans and Cardassians?
Of course, it can only happen when both partners have Inhebitians.
