I am aware of the gestation periods of Betazeds is 10 months and (obviously) humans, but is the time span ever addressed of Klingon gestation? (Perhaps VOY might have a reference with B'Elana's pregnancy, but I'm looking for purely Klingon)

From Memory Alpha:

Klingon pregnancies normally ran thirty weeks, but with mixed species, gestation times were shorter.

Presumably those are standard Earth weeks.

  • Is Memory Alpha referencing the 30w #? – DVK-on-Ahch-To Apr 1 '14 at 14:58

    @DVK Yes, the link goes to the physiology section and that's where the quote comes from. I'm pretty sure the number itself comes from ST:VOY "Lineage". – mu is too short Apr 1 '14 at 16:34

In the Voyager episode "Lineage", the EMH discusses Torres' pregnancy with her husband;

PARIS: When is the baby due?

EMH: Normally, Klingon pregnancies run thirty weeks, but with mixed species it could be sooner.

Given that the EMH contains "the collective information of 2000 medical references", I think we can assume he's reasonably expert on the subject.
