generally refer to Melfina as 'the naked chick in a box'--Hilda, Gene,
and Jim opened a briefcase supposedly full of something valuable and
it turned out to be HER inside, cryogenically frozen. She's an android,
trying to figure out why she was made; nonetheless, she's a very 'human'
android, who can feel emotions, eat, etc. In the ship Outlaw Star,
she takes off all her clothes and gets in a clear cylinder of gel
to serve as navigator. Weird stuff. She's still trying to figure out
what she is, exactly.
