->''"As [[TheScrappy legendarily hatable]] as Mel is, and she is one of the most roundly mocked characters in all of ''Series/DoctorWho'', she's not nearly as misbegotten as all of that... But as poor as much of the writing for Mel is, the larger problem is that she's a companion with a strangely swallowed origin. Creator/JohnNathanTurner quasi-famously wrote an origin story for her in his book on the Companions that had [[WordOfGod her teaming up with the Doctor to stop the Master from an audacious computer hacking attack on the world's banks]], which, let's be honest, probably would have been terrible. But it's still preferable to what we got."''

->''"Remember Ensign Sonya Gomez from [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Q Who]]? That is an object lesson in how to introduce a secondary character and make it extremely memorable. She was quirky, ditzy and accident prone but most of all she was really likable. I remember saying at the time I wish she had been kept on. There’s no such insight in the introduction of the four wayward ''Voyager'' crewmembers here. The pre titles sequence is [[TheOner a long, tedious tour of the ship]] as we watch one of them pass a padd to another as they head around Voyager in their daily tasks. The problem here being that there is more focus on the padd (ie aren’t we clever for doing this extended sequence?) rather than giving any of these characters any kind of personality to attract them to the viewer. Who are these non entities that we have never heard about before and why are we bothering with them now? Remember those four Maquis members from Learning Curve? What the hell happened to them? Remember genuinely interesting crewmembers such as Seska, Suder, Hogan and Carey…what the hell did the writers decide to do with those potentially awesome characters? [[CListFodder Dead, dead, dead]] and [[PutOnABus missing in action]]. What about Ensign Wildman? How comes she’s never seen these days but [[KidAppealCharacter her kid turns up in every episode]]? ...If any of these people are seen again it will be nothing more than a fleeting cameo rather than anything significant and don’t pretend otherwise."''

And he was there when we all went to Cloudsdale together. And he showed up that one time Pinkie went insane for a day.
