    I'm a little confused as to why in 'Terra Prime' a cross species baby was created by a xenophobic terror group?

    TP wanted to show that cross-breeding is possible. Thus leading to the dilution of the Human gene-pool due to future fraternisation with aliens.

    Sure. Even in the 22nd century, the first instinct would be "Humans & Vulcans can't cross breed".

    Though, most of the inter-species characters we end up seeing throughout Trek seem to have needed "help", right?

    I totally misjudged the tone of this post. I read the title as "Terra Prime, baby!"

    I think Paxton's plan was kind of silly when you think about it. He decides to menace Earth with the threat of... an adorable baby! But I can see a xenophobe thinking everyone secretly hates the Vulcans as much as he does. Nonetheless, I bet First Contact night included a few to several inebriated humans trying to introduce the new visitors to human mating rituals...

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    What if on the sly, Paxton made sure the clone was only going to live for one week?

    "Hey! You make a baby with one of those things from outer space, and it will die immediately, there is no future, there is no legacy or dynasty, the only thing you'll find in their sexy sexy genitals is a disappointing barren dead end."

    No one told Amanda and Sarek.

    Little know fact, earlier drafts of Colonel Green's speech railed against the loss of mankind's "mojo" and described genetic purity as "shagadelic."

    Welp, y'all have awakened a zombie thread 2 years dead, and the posts are not what I would call substantive. So I've called Buffy to stake the poor dead thing and put it to rest again. It's been fun.
