    So did you clear the use of the name or did you just figure "What the heck"?

    It's just an homage. I've named Star Trek characters after actors, baseball players, scientists, friends, fans, rock stars, and family members. No one has complained so far — in part, I presume, because my homage characters tend to be depicted in a favorable light, rather than a defamatory one. It's also likely that the recipients of this dubious "honor" generally are unaware of it.

    Players from the St. Louis Cardinals, if I remember correctly. The security chief on the U.S.S. Ranger in the Star Trek Destiny trilogy was named after Cardinals pitcher-turned-outfielder Rick Ankiel. And I'm sure there are a few members of the recent NY Mets scattered throughout some of my other post-Destiny novels.

    With Rick Ankiel as security chief, I'm surprised Ranger was able to hit that Cube.

    As a Cincinnati Reds fan, i can only say: Fuck the Cardinals.


    I still like you Mack, just not as much as I did before. ;)

    Whatever. The Cardinals are my wife's team of choice. I'm agnostic on the whole sports thing.
