I think Girard used the Book I prelude because the Friederich
biography reported (wrongly) that the Book I prelude was the one
included on Voyager. But Girard seems to get most of the "blame" for
the error, probably because even people who read the biography
remember the movie scene before they would remember a brief mention in
a book.

Gee, I wonder if they included any Beatles songs on Voyager? Sorry,
couldn't resist!
