Can't decide where I should put this (which thread), but I just realized something.
Ishan Anjar shares a surname with Ishan Chaye
. Coincidence? I think not!
(Actually, it's very possible that either Una or DRGIII made allusions to this coincidence in either of their novels and I've just forgotten. But still.)
I haven't recognized any overt references to Chaye or to the events of "Things Past," but I've been aware that President Ishan shares a surname with the victim in Odo's memory in that episode since shortly after it came out. Someone on the BBS posted it. It DOES present some interesting possibilities, if Anjar and Chaye are related....
