Well, Jenna is referred to as "superior grade", so maybe:

* Superior
* Alpha
* Beta
* Delta


Meaning Jenna is superior to everyone else... I, and I daresay Ms Knyvette, will go with that theory from now on. Pfft


I thought you might Grin

Percy????
I have concluded that Jenna is Blake-aware, Blake is Avon-aware, Avon is self-aware and Gan is rarely aware. Vila is merely wary. Cally is frequently more away than aware.

Hi Paula,

It is stated:

AVON What about Ushton?
BLAKE He's my father's brother. I thought he was dead. He ought to be dead. He's been a prisoner on that planet for years.


But who's to say that surnames follow exactly the same logic in the time of B7?

Yeah, she figured that out right after she posted, and deleted, but you were too quick.

There have been many theories over the years. One surmises that the naming convention follows the east, where the surname comes first, thus Kerr Avon's family name is Kerr, and his given name Avon.

Like all theories though, it eventually falls to pieces, as when Inga lovingly calls Blake, Roj.

As I stated earlier, trying to find continuity in a 70's television show will drive you mad.

That reminds me of Major Major in Catch-22. As I recall, it was his first and last name as well as his rank, so he was actually Major Major Major.

There's also Del Grant, called "Grant", and Del Tarrant, called "Tarrant". We know these are surnames from their siblings Anna Grant and Deeta Tarrant.

Hal Mellanby's daughter is Dayna Mellanby, but I can't recall off the top of my head if he was addressed as Mellanby, or at all. (Perhaps only by Servalan?)

Must get hold of it again and re-read. Brilliant book, tragi-comic, dark, hilarious... It's been years - decades! - since I read it. I was in my teens when our local cinema was showing the movie and I went to see it three times and read the book twice just to figure out the time line! Years later, when everyone was going 'gosh wow' over Tarantino's 'Pulp Fiction' playing around with narrative order, I just thought 'Pah, Catch-22 did it first and better!'
