3 years later, in 1964, the same network, CBS, launched a sitcom about a young woman android called "My Living Doll" with Julie Newmar and Bob Cummings. Her name was "Robot 709" which was changed to Rhoda. It's thought that the naming of semi-cyborg Seven of Nine on Star Trek: Voyager was a tribute.
