Chris Carter is Piper's Godfather, that might be a clue as to why he named an episode for after her.

I'm not sure about this, it's been about 2 years since I read about it. But in either Dod Kaulm of Piper Maru, The Boat Says 9-25 which is Piper's B-day Sept 25

Maru is not only Japanese for "ship", which was particularly fitting for the episode, but it's also Polynesian for "calm, gentle" which is primarily why Gillian Anderson gave her daughter that name.

yes... and the boat is named Drop Dead Red in tribute to Gillian Anderson. As any good X-Phile should know

The boat is also the Piper Maru, which boat was Drop Dead Red? I guess I have to watch that ep again, but I'm missing 15 minutes of it. :-( Yea, I have the whole series except for that much, and 3 more eps.

The Japanese also use 'maru' in the names of their ships (I'm not sure of the exact reason). For example 'The Kobayashi Maru' from Start Trek II.

The wrecked Mustang at the bottom of the sea in that episode had the words "Drop Dead Red" painted on it...IIRC it was supposed to be escorting a bomber with an a-bomb to Japan, or something...

I read it somewhere, and maru means "peaceful waters" or something like that.....also, it's the name of the episode, not the show...
