At the end of the film, after Beech and Tech 49 Jack sacrifice themselves and destroy the ship Julia is then seen with a child (who looks about 3 years old). She is then re-introduced to Tech 52 Jack and the way I perceived this was Tech 49 Jacks child but how is this possible if he is dead and there was nothing more than a kiss shown to happen between them?

I'm a firm believer that parents should be the ones explaining how babies are made. – hexparrot Apr 24 '13 at 22:08
Didn't Julia spend a night in the cabin with Tech 49...? – AidanO Apr 25 '13 at 7:44
@AidanO You're right I forgot about that. If you write it as an answer I'll accept it for you – jampez77 Apr 25 '13 at 13:07
Don't happen to know the answer to my other question about this film by any chance?… – jampez77 Apr 25 '13 at 13:08
I think the original Jack must have known they were expecting a daughter. In the end voice-over from 52 he refers to a daughter "I wonder if you see me when you look at her". – user4839 May 12 '13 at 3:22

The "Jack" who found Julia and saved her from her ship wreckage, slept with her at the hideaway, this is when she got pregnant. A year or two later, the other "Jack" was found and brought to her. All of the "Jacks", had the same memory of Julia...thus, they still loved each other.

Julia was in Delta sleep for 60 years. She might have been pregnant before Delta sleep. Delta sleep apparently halts aging and embryonic growth, until the person wakes up again.
