He's BIG! The lizard, not the guy. Did he outgrow his cage?

I loved that novel! Jinx was such a sweetheart :3 I was so happy when she finally got her name (Another Star Freedom to-Eeiauo - that would be too long for a pet's name, wouldn't it? XD)

Actually, no. He didn't outgrow his cage, but he wasn't safe around little children. Otherwise, I wouldn't have gotten rid of him.

Not Star Trek, but Doctor Who; I briefly had a dog I named Nyssa. Unfortunately, while she was good with people, when left alone she destroyed everything in the house that she could.

My original TrekBBS name was JinxtoEeiauo.
When I got hooked on Enterprise, I changed it.
It's my favorite Trek novel.

Re: Pets with Star Trek names...

The first two dogs my wife and I had were Labs named Worf and Odo. Our last dog was an American Eskimo Spitz named Saratoga after the U.S.S. Saratoga from Star Trek IV. And we have had cats named Farragut (after U.S.S. Farragut) and Kira (although my wife and I differ on why we call her that, 'cause she's a Dark Crystal fan ).

We have also had cats named Xander (Buffy), Chloe (Smallville), Neo (The Matrix), and Mia (after the Pizza Hut pizzas we were eating a lot of - she was rescued from the dump when we were taking a bunch of the boxes off. ) And a Holland Lop (bunny) named R. Sebastian Bach (the "R" is for Rabbit, in honor of Isaac Asimov).

Oh, and they aren't pets, but our son is named after a character from L. Ron Hubbard's Mission Earth series, and our daughter's middle name is Nerys. (That one is indisputable. )

Re: Pets with Star Trek names...

I have a cat named Wicket after the leader of the Ewoks. He is the smartest cat I've ever had and can open a door from the outside of the house by leaping straight up about 4 feet, hanging onto the handle and swinging his weight into the door to open it. He can open a few other doors too. He has certainly lived up to his name.

I used to have a guinea pig named Nero who did not have any Romulan qualities but it suited him.

What T'Laina said. That is an awesome novel, one of my favorites. What a great name for a cat

My mother has a cat named "Moogie." Which I think is great. She's not one of my favorite characters or anything, but "Moogie" is just really fun to say. Try it! Moogie moogie moogie moogie moogie moogie moogie...

See what I mean?

One of our cats is named Dax. My 11 year old named her after her favorite DS9 character. Our other cat is Hermoine, from Harry Potter.

I had a fish named Livingston after Picard's Lion Fish. A boyfriend and I named his dog Dax after Curzon. (Even as a puppy we thought he looked like a crotchety old man.)

And now I want an iguana.
