The Child is the seventh episode of Star Trek: Phase II.
Background information[edit | edit source]
The Child is based on the original script written for the ill-fated 1977 series, Star Trek: Phase II.
Jon Povill directed The Child. Povill worked with Gene Roddenberry on the series bible for the original Phase II, and co-wrote several of the first episode scripts, including that for The Child.
The original concept for The Child was that Lieutenant Ilia, a Deltan and the ship's navigator for its new voyage, was impregnated by a non-corporeal being seeking to experience what it's like to be a humanoid, with potentially disastrous consequences for the Enterprise.
