I see nothing unethical happening here. It's what Kirk does, but happening on our planet. I will hear no double standards.

There was an EscapePod story a while back that had to have drawn its inspiration from this study.

It is what Kirk does.

I wonder what the dolphin-human babies will look like?

I missed the Kirk-Dolphin episode.

Would it make any difference whether the dolphin was male or female?

Where else on earth can you ask such a question and get a serious response? Well, a response anyway.

I'm not aware that there was a Kirk-dolphin episode. (Although with the new Ultimate Star Trek universe, we can't discount the possibility.) I'm referring to the way Star Trek species can have babies with each other no problem, even though they are from, like, you know, DIFFERENT PLANETS. A human/dolphin hybrid makes as much sense as a human/vulcan one.

Assume the hybrid is a female. The woman/dolphin (wolphin) could have a baby with Spock, which would be a huvulphin.

He could just eb referring to Shatner. From the stories I read the guy would rut anything that didn't move fast enough.

The dolphin connection could explain why Shatner thought his wife would be okay at the bottom of the pool.
Dispatcher: "I want you to take her out of the pool right now."

Shatner: "She's at the very deep end! --(He mumbles something unintelligible.)" (My wig?)
