"Ahab" was a nickname commonly used, in reference to William Scully, by his daugter, Dana Scully. (TXF: "Beyond the Sea", "One Breath", "Quagmire") According to Dana Scully in 1996, the use of the nickname was originally inspired by her father repeatedly having read to her from Moby Dick during her childhood and, in turn, he would traditionally refer to her as "Starbuck". (TXF: "Quagmire") Dana Scully and her father kept these traditions up to the death of her father, shortly after Christmas, 1994. (TXF: "Beyond the Sea") Additionally, the use of these nicknaming traditions would influence Dana Scully to name a dog she had in 1995 and 1996 as "Queequeg". (TXF: "Quagmire", "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose")
