Was that when Troi was impregnated by the 'energy ball'?

Since Ian, her son, also grew at a very fast rate, I expect that there was some very advanced biology at work in his conception.

I always wondered why Riker didn't get some rather knowing looks from the rest of the crew.

edit: I don't remember them saying he had her DNA, but I see now what you mean, if it had been a girl then it could have been her clone, but since it is a boy, it's impossible, whatever kind of biology was at work.

Yeah, that was my point - they said something like "it appears there is no DNA apart from hers" or something like that.. sheeshhh ;)

But yeah, the briefing was quite funny - she looked very embarassed but I think some more funny looks - perhaps Data looking at Riker would have been funny.
