There's only one way to find out (two actually, but the other method is boring.)

,,Oh, Talana? Could you come here for a second? Look, I've got this lovely invisible necklace. Mind if I put it on you to see how it looks?" (Let's hope she doesn't realize that you can't see invisible necjklaces, so there's no use in seeing how they look on her.)

And the other method? Ask her. But where's the fun in that?

This experiment could very well end with her seeing what color comes out of you, when she sticks you with that dagger of hers. But maybe that's what you consider to be the fun part.

Oh, but there are some things you can do to prevent that. Such as wearing a nice bit of armour underneath your clothes. Even nowadays we've got stuff that's quite light and could stop most of the metal. (It may be all the rage there, but I definitely won't dress up like her. I would catch a cold. Not to mention I'm male, and I would feel emberassed if I dressed up like that.)

Or, you simply hire someone else to do it. I don't know how strong a Syreen is, but I prefer not to find out personally. My muscles aren't exactly...big.

And the last precaution? A fast ship, all fuelled up. Then I can run to the other end of the galaxy. I know what happened to the Mycon when they angered the Syreen, and I don't want to be next.

And to be totally safe, it would be a hell of a  lot easier to first put a bunch of sleeping pills in her food. You can still see the colour without having to worry about anything. (with the excepton of other Syreen and security cameras)

I'd just ask a Syreen doctor.

It has been pointed out that Syreen and Humans may not be genetically compatible, despite outward appearance.  Talana and the Captain might have adopted (my "it all fits" idea is that they adopted some 'synth they saved from Orz), or Talana may have used a human donor egg.

If u remembered correctly in SC3 it was revealed that the early evolution of humans and syreen were almost identical except that the syreen didnt develop the "male dominence" that our cultures have had. So i would think they would be genetically compatible. Later the syreen developed their phycic powers. Also the fact that the kids have non-blue skin doesnt prove that they arent half syreen and half human. It may be like when a black person and a white person have kids. The kids are almost always black cus those are the stronger genes or something like that. The kids might get other traights from there mom like her phsycic powers. Also those werent his kids those were his grandchildren if u remember correctly.

As for black-white parents, the children are usually intermediate. They are however, very noticably darker than white, and (due to this and other less savory cultural factors) tend to get lumped in... but if you look at it simply they really are pretty much in the middle.

As for the Syreen, I thought that info was revealed in SC2.

As for the grandkids, I figured that they were children of their children and a human, so that the human genes ended up dominating.
For example, if Syreen skin tone is determined not by one gene but by a complex network, and a nonfunctioning network produced no tint... then quarter syreen would almost always have no syreen tint.

 the children are usually intermediate

I can't really agree with this. Most of the children I've
seen of mixed race have been at one end of the
spectrem or the other.

It is true the children shown at the end of SC2 are the
Captain's grandchildren. So, I suppose they could be
one of any number of mixes. I don't see any claws
or extra eyes...

you'd think religion would disappear by then.

That will never happen. Religion will always be around in one form or another.

"in one form or another" is very general. You could say that a diet is a sort of religion.
But what I mean is that beliefs in a God will wane and eventually disappear. Though I only forsee that happening after we finally make contact with other sentients Tongue

According to the Supox, Druuge, Spathi, Ilwrath, Pkunk and others, there's a greater likelyhood to believe in a monotheistic style diety (one more far reaching than elemental spirits).
