For the ENT episode of the same name, please see "Hatchery".

A hatchery or breeding facility was a facility where a species' young, typically known as hatchlings, were hatched from eggs.

Several Xindi-Insectoid ships had hatcheries that were incubation facilities for the crew's eggs. (ENT: "Hatchery")

The Dominion bred the Jem'Hadar in hatcheries, something Damar felt made them appear expendable to their breeders, unlike their adversary, the Federation, who did not. (DS9: "Penumbra") The Dominion maintained a Jem'Hadar breeding facility on Sheva II. (DS9: "Once More Unto the Breach")

Background information Edit

Portraying a Xindi-Insectoid hatchery was one of the first ideas conceived in the development of the episode "Hatchery". Commented Brannon Braga, "We always liked the idea of an insect hatchery." (Star Trek: Communicator issue 151, p. 32) A Xindi-Insectoid hatchery that appears in the episode was scripted, in the installment's final draft script, to be "a spacious, dimly-lit chamber."

In David Weddle and Jeffrey Lang's Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Section 31 novel Abyss, Ethan Locken (β), a rogue Section 31 member, uses an abandoned hatchery to breed Jem'Hadar soldiers loyal to him.
