Syreens and humans are genetically compatable and are capable of producing hybrid young. These hybrids are capable of breeding as well. This means that humans and Syreens are the precise same species, since otherwise they would produce infertile young or wouldn't reproduce at all.


I never thought about this, I always assumed that the grandchildren were Talana's genetic grandchildren, but that doesn't have to be true;  Talana and the Captain may have adopted children, or maybe they adopted some Androsynth (found after SC2), and these Androsynth adopted some human children.  Anyone know if there is dialog regarding genetic compatabilities between Syreen and Human (beyond mere physical compatabilities that we know already exist)?

Either that or Heinlein would be proud and Zelnick enters a multiple marriage.

Correct.  The ending also does not explicity say The Captain and Talana were the ones to get married.  It indirectly implies that.  But I wouldn't say the ending text makes that an absolute truth! :-/
