Welshie was a redshirt Star Trek actor, who replaced James Doohan in the 2200s, because Doohan had trouble yodelling. He has an unnamed cousin.

However, when the Planet Express crew ran into the former cast of Star Trek on Omega 3, Melllvar finally appeared to explain how he had kept the Star Trek cast alive, though in obsession with being the biggest Star Trek fan, he would often focus his anger on Welshie, which eventually killed him, much to Fry's dismay.

Additional Info
