Re: Brannon Braga: Not a Diane Carey Fan?

The thing about names reminds me of an interview about Brinkmanship, where the interviewer commented on the Cardassian's spy's name's similarity to tv cardassians. In that case Una was deliberately doing worldbuilding - names are common societal signifiers, that don't often mean known relation. Lols about the small world mentality in fictional worlds that means everyone must be related by some recent, important connection!
