Stella Mudd was the shrewish wife of Harcourt Fenton Mudd. She had been left behind on Earth when the latter began his career as a con artist. When the android Norman allowed Harry to take over his planet, he made a replica of her so that he could verbally abuse her at will. When James T. Kirk removed the androids from Mudd's control, he left Mudd on the planet with five hundred uncontrollable replicas of Stella as punishment. (TOS: "I, Mudd") Stella was played by Kay Elliot.'She is wearing a dress originally worn by Martha Leighton in "The Conscience of the King", albeit it was reworked for this episode to feature an open neck part.
