Re: Saavik's pregnancy and the novels
Spock and Saavik are both half Vulcan and we know that Vulcans have a great deal of control over their bodies. Who is to say the gestation has to follow on immediately following fertilisation ? Or that in the 23rd or 24th century there are not artificial means available.
Even if Spock and Saavik had missed their natural biological window, there are always possibilities...
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
