And what about Druisilla in Bread and Circuses? And she's a sex slave!

Re: Why is almost every hybrid on the show half human?

You know I like Kirk's reputation. Why are people always trying to reboot him into less of a ladies man?

Even though we didn't see every liaison it's clear he had a lot of girlfriends in his past and that women were very attracted to him. You can tell by the way their faces get all soft and unfocused whenever they speak to him. Heck sometimes when I'm watching TOS my face begins to feel positively angelic and my lips part slightly. It's the damnedest thing.

Maybe because they don't want him to seem uncaring.

Kirk cares. He's one of those guys who fall hard and feel bad when things don't work out.

Oh yeah. Look at what happened to him with the android, Rayna. Total wreck at the end. And she wasn't even flesh and blood. Or perhaps, he saw how perfect Flint made her and imagined the limitless possibilities in bedroom.

And remember, Miramanee was his WIFE at the time, and he almost married Carol Marcus. Not exactly casual sex, either.
Still, you'd think by then they'd have perfected birth-control.

I don't know what he was expecting would happen. It's not like the Enterprise can orbit these planets forever and they can't come with them. Short-term relationship is all he's gonna have.

I didn't get the impression that David was 'unplanned'. For all we know, they both wanted a child. They just had different expectations on how to raise him.

Miramanee was from a planet that likely didn't have birth control, and as for Carol Marcus, it's possible that when David was conceived it was a heat of the moment thing which didn't allow time for birth control. Or maybe it was planned and they ran into relationship problems later.

I would think that by Trek's time, birth control is as simple as a one-time shot with a hypospray which is forever 100% effective until reversed with another such shot.

Although in the ST III novelization, it is implied that birth control is a simple matter of will (David and Saavik are talking about it and David says something about "I passed all my exams in bio-control").

Re: Why is almost every hybrid on the show half human?

A matter of will,

So if it's just reversible shot (and I think this is mentioned in DS9) then why was Kirk not up to date? One of the deals where the doctor has to nag the captain to get to sickbay I bet.

Well, according to some politicians, woman have ways of preventing pregnancy by sheer willpower even now! Especially if it was a legitimate rape!

On DS9, Kasidy Yates got pregnant primarily because bother her and Sisko forgot to take their birth control medication. If such a thing can happen in the 24th century, it can happen in the 23rd.

Nothing's ever 100% effective, except hysterectomies. Would the magical medicine of 24th century Trek really have a way to remove a uterus via hypo and return it with another hypo?
