The Cochran(e) surname might be a fictional familial association, or merely an allusion by the writer. When Christy Marx wrote the JEM television series (based on Hasbro's line of toys), she named the fictional Emmett Benton as an allusion to Dr. Stephen Benton, who developed rainbow holograms. (Emmett Benton created the holographic computer, Synergy.) No in-universe association is implied.
