Melora Pazlar Daphne Ashbrook Melora (DS9)
Melora Pazlar is a female Elaysian, a species from a planet where gravity is weaker than on most other planets. As of stardate 47229.1, she was an ensign in Starfleet, and a cartographer.

Pazlar came to the station before a mapping mission to the Gamma Quadrant. Because the gravity on DS9 was too strong for her, she had to rely on either a wheelchair, or an exoskeletal network of flexible metal beams worn over her body to help her move around the station. Doctor Julian Bashir devised a treatment to help her walk like the other humanoids on the station. Pazlar started the treatment, but when she realized that she wouldn't be able to enjoy low-gravity environments any more, she decided to discontinue the process.

The character was originally developed to be the regular science officer on the series. However, logistics made it difficult to use the effects required on a regular basis, and the character was used as a guest appearance instead.

Romulan Commander Maurice Roëves The Chase (TNG)
He commanded a Romulan Warbird that, while cloaked, followed the Enterprise-D and two Cardassian warships to a planet in the Vilmoran system. On the surface, he witnessed the holographic message from a humanoid who claimed that her race seeded the primordial oceans of many worlds with ancient DNA, thereby suggesting that humans, Klingons, Vulcans/Romulans and Cardassians are all related. Before leaving the planet, the Commander contacted Picard and admitted that, perhaps, their people were not so dissimilar after all.[16]
Romulan Commander Lou Scheimer The Practical Joker (TAS)
In 2269, he commanded three D7-class battle cruisers, which hid behind a Type-4 asteroid and ambushed the Enterprise as she approached. The commander claimed that the Enterprise had trespassed into Romulan territory and that he was forced to defend it. He also said that the invasion of Romulan territory was punishable by death. Later, when the Enterprise released a larger decoy balloon of itself, the commander pursued it at attack speed. After destroying it easily and learning that he'd been tricked, he was so furious that he followed the real Enterprise into Federation territory, hoping to destroy it. In so doing, he entered a strange energy field in space, and when his ships' instrumentation was rendered useless, he decided to vacate the field before his ships broke up. He ordered a course set for home. However, brief passage through the field caused his food synthesizers to malfunction. He and his crew were "knee deep in desserts" when last heard from.[17]
Romulan Commander Peter Vogt Tin Man (TNG)

Noonien Soong Brent Spiner Brothers (TNG) recurring thereafter
Human cyberneticist who created Data, also played by Brent Spiner. Soong has created three complete androids in the known Star Trek universe, Data, Lore, and a Gynoid replica of his dead wife Juliana, which is technically superior to his previous models, as well as three prototype androids including B-4 (in the same design as Data and Lore). Early in Dr. Soong's career he was widely hailed as Earth's foremost robotic scientist, but he became a recluse after apparently failing to create a positronic brain and was thought to have been killed with other colonists on Omicron Theta. The scientist actually settled on Terlina III and summoned Data there to fit him with his final invention, an emotion chip. He inadvertently also summoned Data's brother, Lore, who attacked him after obtaining the chip. Soong survived, but was nearing death and elected to remain on Terlina rather than go aboard the Enterprise for medical care.

The one thing that kept defeating Dr Soong was how to make an workable emotion response software for his android "sons." Lore was activated with emotional responses but had to be disassembled when he began to turn evil; Data was made without emotions. Soong had planned to reassemble Lore to find out what went wrong but was forced to flee for his life. Data tried to make a Gynoid daughter named Lal using his own positronic brain circuitry. However, like Lore, Lal had to be turned off because she had had positronic brain collapse due to the sudden emotional responses. Ironically, after 25 years, Dr Soong perfected an emotion chip built for Data, but Lore stole it and became insane. When Data was forced to kill Lore ("Descent") the emotion chip was damaged; Data considered destroying the chip but later implanted it in his positronic brain. However even repaired the chip was flawed-the emotions caused Data Positronic net to behave erratically (Star Trek:Generations); Data learned to control his emotions. Doubly Ironic is the fact that When Data was killed when he sacrificed himself, the only part left of him was the emotion chip ("Nem"); of the four androids constructed by Dr Soong the only one to experience emotions without any problems was the gynoid replica of his wife Julianna-and only because he managed to trasfer the synamitic responses of his dying wife to the gynoid instead of creating an emotion chip.

The name "Noonien" was first used in the Star Trek: The Original Series 1st-season episode "Space Seed" as the middle name of the antagonist Khan Noonien Singh. Gene Roddenberry used the name because he had lost touch with an old friend (Noonien Wang or Noonien Singh[23]) and hoped that Wang might see the episode and contact him. Roddenberry was still trying to find Wang in the late-80s when Star Trek: The Next Generation began so he decided to use "Noonien" once again as the name of Data's creator.[24]
