Re: TOS: The Rings of Time by Greg Cox Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Can someone explain to me the origin of the names "Zoe Querez" and "Qat Zaldana"? I've figured where "Zoe" and "Zaldana" come from but not "Qat" and "Querez".

Oh. I thought there was some real person named Qat Querez.

Honestly, at this late date, I can't remember how I came up with those names--except that I wanted to them to be similar but not too similar.

And, believe it or not, I'm not sure if I was deliberately referencing Zoe Saldana or not. It seems obvious when you point it out now, but it might have been unconscious on my part . . ..

I certainly wasn't imagining Zoe Saldana in the part. In my head, Zoe was more like Sarah Silverman--or maybe "Claudia" on Warehouse 13. A hip, smark-alecky wiseacre, not Uhura.

(True story: Zoe was originally going to be "Rain Robinson" from Voyager, but I discarded that idea early on.)
