Re: Star Trek: Unspoken Truth - Discussion (Spoilers)

May I ask if/why you chose to base Captain Miranova so completely on Helen Mirren?

Don't get me wrong, I liked the character, Dame Helen is one of my favorite actresses, and that was probably my favorite part of the novel, but every time I would read "Galina Miranova," I would think of Mirren's real name, "Ilyena Miranov" (as I imagine I was supposed to) and it yanked me out of the story.
