Is DAX a double entendre also referring to a character on Star Trek Deep Space 9?

DAX was a symbiant life form living in a number of different humanoid beings in the Star Trek series. Perhaps the most memorable was Jadzia Dax:

Is there any truth that the DAX feature commemorates this great role?

("Honestly, dear, it ISN'T that woman on Star Trek that I'm lusting over, it's a feature for my new Flex Radio!")

We were talking about this just yesterday and I was joking that we could have 3rd party programs with a "DAX Inside" logo .... get it?

Matt came up with the name and he isn't a trekkie so it wasn't in mind when the name originated ... but it came right to the mind of the trekkies here. Of course, someone could have used a Vulcan mind meld on Matt and we'd never know.
