It could be any lol! If they had a few kids they may well look all different..like the brown/blue eye theory mentioned above! Thats how genetics works!!
So they might have 3 kids..one each with one two and three eyes!!! tongue

Their kids would have maybe one big eye and one normal one... or maybe he/she would have one eye, or two eyes..

OK, I'll leave you people alone to talk about your human/cyclops hybrids.

If Leela isn't human, then she and fry would'nt be able to carry a child, because she is a different species. If she's a mutated human (from another planet) she and fry might be able to carry a child, with the risk of passing the mutation down to her offspring. We have'nt covered Genetics in Bio yet, so I'm not sure how logical this sounds.

So, how do you explain Torres and Spock?

Horses and donkeys are able to produce offspring, but the mules are usually sterile due to chromosome mismatches (horses have a certain number of chromosomes, donkeys have a pair less).  I don't remember Spock's perdicament, but I know B'lanna had a child, which might indicate a genetic compatability between Klingons and Humans.  If Leela were an alien, then she might have an entirely different genetic system altogether.  It might be a mean-mutator system like I suggested in my fic, or a pseudo-cloning process.  Who knows?

Both Spock and Torres were half human.  THen Torres and Paris had a baby, making her (the baby) quarter Klingon.  Thus (In the Star Trek universe), inter-species mating is so much more than a possibility.

Wasn't Paris pure bred human (Jeeze I sound like a racist)

If so wouldn't that make the baby 3/4 human 1/4 Klingon?

Even if she is an alien(which she very well could still be, mutated alien) Who's to say the Specie's chromosomes don't match a humans, personaly I think yer talkin' to much science and too little Science-Fiction anyway  tongue

One huge eye instead of a head, with two eye-like protuberances on the front.
Or no eyes at all!  evil laugh

That would be horrible!! but it could happen if Leela is a mutant.  Who knows what other strange latent mutations could exist in her DNA, only to be expressed in thier children?
Personally I think it would vary between 1 and 2 eyes.

Maybe the recessive gene would pop up and they kid would have tentacles passed down from Grandma, and a sideways mouth from Grandpa, but still have orange pointy hair and one eye like Fry.  Imagine it!

I'm debating whether or not to drop a bombshell (or maybe just bomb) theory on Leela's ancestry into a fanfic...it would (1) settle the mutant-or-alien controversy without preventing further development, in that it would say what but not precisely who, (2) explain exactly where the subterranean mutants came from, and (3) closely relate her to another important character...

(Cue Empire Strikes Back music)

LEELA: "No...that's not true...that's impossible!!"
?????: "Well, I'd show you the baby pictures, if I had baby pictures. You'll just have to take my word for it."
LEELA: "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

Just Chris's explanation has been the best, most feasaible thing said, and it went ignored. Unless Just Chris is my invisible friend that only i can see, you suck. wait... yeah.

K'Ehleyr was also half human, half Klingon, which would make Worf's son Alexander 1/4 Human.  There was also Gol Dukat's daughter who was Cardassian/Bejorian.  And a few others, too.

Don't forget, in the ST universe, the first humanoid species that evolved in the galaxy found it empty and 'seeded' many habitable planets with their DNA so the primitive life forms might eventually evolve into humanoids. (ST:TNG ep #146 "The Chase&quot wink So it's likely that the DNA are similar enough to allow crossbreeding.

 Both Leela's parents are cyclopsian, aren't they? If so, we can assume there's a 50% chance that the trait is a recessive and 50% dominant because if both of them had the gene (or set of genes, more likely) expressed, but either way Leela would have ONLY the genes for one eye- little chance of a recessive "two-eye" gene. So, her egg making up half the DNA for the kid would mean that the kid has a 50% chance of becoming a cyclops. However, the point was brought into it that Fry's had his sperm messed with- think of the massive doses of radiation from using the PE ship as a hairdryer, for example- and you can no longer assume that his  half of the chromosomes will be normal. Without intervention, there's no doubt the kid's gonna be SOME kind of mutant.
 
 BUT. Remember the episode where they were in the steam room? "Look what life was like before genetic engineering" - in other words, this whole argument is moot because kids are modified to be whatever the parents want.
 In which case I think the kid's gonna have one eye.
 The end.  smile
