Must be a star nearby called Tonix.

Any HHGTTK fans will know what I'm talking about.

Funny, Al. I got it without HHGTTK membership (send me the bill / tab). Maybe it is a double star, then you can lobby for it!

I thought it was in homage to the character on Star Trek Next Gen (Whoopi Goldberg's character). Though, that is spelt as Guinan.
