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.)

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

Another quick question about The Rings of Time, Greg, if you do not mind. I was reading some Strange New Worlds stories, and I noticed that "Assignment: One" named Shaun Geoffrey Christopher's (first) wife "Debbie". And The Rings of Time does as well. However, there are major incompatibilites between "Assignment: One" and your 20th/21st century novels. Did you take "Debbie Christopher" from "Assignment: One"?

That's not a coincidence. I certainly read "Assignment:One" while writing my book, and lifted the name of Shaun's wife from there.

I wasn't going to drive myself nuts trying to reconcile the two stories, but I took what I could from that story. If somebody has already given the wife a name, why not use the same one?

I see. Thanks, Greg!

Too bad Myriad Universes - Seeds of Dissent didn't follow suit. Oh well.
