Re: Reason for Reliant's number?

Where does the name Reliant come from? It's an odd name as such, a starship that is reliant on others rather than stalwart or inflexible or vengeful or whatever...
My own personal theory is that since Ricardo Montalban did a series of commercials for Chrysler starting in the late 70s for Chrysler, and their "fine Corinthian leather" and then Chrysler then came out with their very affordable 'Reliant K' cars in the early 80s and that this was a nod to that.

In reality, that is probably not the reason; but in my reality, that is exactly why it happened.
