    You had me surprised for a moment. You shouldn't have included that link though.

      Zakharov is not a very unusual name in Russian families. I'd be more freaked out if you found a child named Prokhor Zakharov who was born late in the 1990s, though, as that would be a coincidence with SMAC.

        I actually believed you before I read the other two posts twice and finally decided that I should check the link out ...

          note hes from Belerus - the language is close to Great Russian, IIUC, so name may common there also, or is this guy ethnically Great Russian?

            Prokhor doesn't seem to be too popular. Except Mwabudike it is the only first name of one of the "first" seven faction leaders which gives a Google reference to SMAC on the first page. Most other references are to some Saint Prokhor of Sarov.
            Btw. officially, Zak is born in Russia and not in Belarus, and we do know date and place of his birth. Perhaps someone of you can hack into the official registers of Cherskij?
            Why doing it the easy way if it is possible to do it complicated?

                    Some funny references:

                    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...684451-5866325 - Apparently there is a Deirdre Skye who reviews books at Amazon.com;

                    http://www.espnstar.com/dreamteam/bios/maincontent.html - There's a reference to Pravin Lal in the Hari Lal link;

                    http://pravinmahajan.tripod.com/proj...der/people.htm - This is a personal site with reference to some sort of "Project Spider". Go the section titled "Back to School", there he is, Mr. Pravin Lal.

                    And finally, someone already chose the cast for a future Alpha Centauri movie. There's even a story outlined for it. Here's the link:
