Possible Reference Edit

Is it just me or is that name a Cate Archer from No One Lives Forever reference? - 88.156.18.251 21:13, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

Based on what exactly? Lancer1289 21:28, August 23, 2011 (UTC)
Games, both are involved in terrorist-related plots, Cate -> Kate, Bowman -> Archer. Could be coincidental but there is a distinct possibility, game developers like referencing things. -- 88.156.18.251 21:31, August 23, 2011 (UTC)
This is nothing but a coincidence. The "reference" is not even the same name, and drawing the names to something else is just stretching it beyond the point of breaking. Lancer1289 21:34, August 23, 2011 (UTC)
It's a conspiracy! They could be trying to make you think it's not one by obscuring it a bit! In all seriousness - as I said, could be, could be not. No one asked the question before, either way, but there is a pattern visible to a human mind there, which is always a curious thing. Like "Hey, this cloud looks like a sheep". The dubious nature is why I didn't go running to add a trivia section and confined this to the talk page. - 88.156.18.251 21:39, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

I think it's totally obvious that Kate Bowman is a reference to Jonathan Archer from Enterprise. I mean, think about it. Kate starts with K. Jonathan starts with J. J -> K. And Archer -> Bowman. A -> B. (Subtle shifts in lettering and gender would be fairly consistent with known and confirmed name references - see Pressha.) And they've both been in space, both been in video games, both been involved in mining, mining operations, and mining colonies, and both have fought against alien terrorists. So many parallels here. Definitely more than there are between Kate Bowman and Cate Archer. :P SpartHawg948 22:29, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

You've convinced me, Spart.--Captainhu 23:28, August 23, 2011 (UTC)
