      That's a clever idea regarding Seven of Nine's name and I'm not familiar with the 47 gag either.Reesa

      What 47 gag? I don't recognize the reference!

      It probably had more to the 47 running gag in the more recent TV shows than
      the TOS episode.

      Obviously the TOS character "Gary Seven" predates VOY.
      The book came out not long after "Seven of Nine" appeared.

      I just wonder how/why that naming came about!
      Had one of the show-writers been catching up on TOS?
      Had someone seen an early draft/heard talk about the book?

      "Seven" is the only 2-syllable-single-digit-number, so maybe it makes a
      better (better sounding) name.
      But still.......
