Ivy, my bestest of friends and an "Iddiot" of legendary status, has an idea regarding the introduction of Herarat Aviation in this week's episode of 'Lost':

I've got a cool new Lost theory -- mine own, too.

After discovering that Herarat Airlines is an anagram for (Amelia) Earhart, I posit what we know. Earhart's plane disappeared in the South Pacific in 1937. My mother believes that she was accompanied by a male co-pilot. [Toby's note: His name was Fred Noonan.]

No wreckage was ever found, no sign of bodies. They simply...disappeared....

And I believe they wound up in the cave on Lost Island where they are known to the producers as "Adam and Eve."

It's an interesting idea, but even though Ivy is, as I said, my bestest of friends, I'm hoping she's wrong.

Because in Toobworld, we already know what happened to Earhart and Noonan. In 1937, they, along with many other Earthlings of that year, were kidnapped by an alien race known as the Briori who brought them to the Delta Quadrant to serve as the genetic basis for repopulating a planet there. They were kept in stasis until the year 2371 when they were discovered by the crew of the starship Voyager. ('Star Trek: Voyager' - "The 37s")

We also saw an elderly Ms. Earhart kept in a cell by a very unique collector named Dr. Glendon back in the early 1970s. When we saw her, Glendon was adding one of the last of the old-style gangsters to his collection, August Kolodny. ('Night Gallery' - "Rare Objects")

However, I think Glendon was duped into believing that he had Amelia Earhart. She was not the real thing but an incredible simulation. That sort of fake passed off as the real thing happens all the time to collectors, who find they must continue to present the forgery as the original in order to save face and their investment.

So that splains away that discrepancy!

But Ivy may eventually be proven right in regards to the identities of "Adam & Eve" from the caves on 'Lost'. If so, then I'll have to figure out some other splainin to cover the discrepancy between 'Lost' and 'Star Trek: Voyager'.
