I wonder if we don't have this actress mixed up. Michelle Larson also has credit as a Super Scout, and I don't see any scouts this old. Meanwhile, there is a scout that resembles Melanie. --Steelviper 05:07, 3 January 2008 (CST)

Good catch. Yeah, I think we've got them swapped. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 10:41, 3 January 2008 (CST)
Well, us, and the rest of the internet. A search on Michelle Larson mostly returns hits listing her as Charity. Weird... --Steelviper 10:51, 3 January 2008 (CST)

Ok. Being married to Sam Raimi, you're going to have pictures floating around on the internet. Here's the ONLY picture I've been able to find of Gillian Greene-Raimi so far. She's definitely pretty darned brunette. (I mean, look at the kids.) I'm NOT objective in this case, but does it look to anybody else that Charity was likely played by Gillian Greene (meaning that Michelle Larson played the little blonde girl, and is likely one of the little blonde Super Scouts.) --Steelviper 19:51, 7 January 2008 (CST)

You know, looking at the picture and Charity's image, I guess they screwed up the credits for "Experiment in Terra" then, because Charity is credited as being played by Michelle Carol Larson. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 20:01, 7 January 2008 (CST)
Is it possible that we've gotten the names of the characters wrong? That is, Charity is actually Melanie and Melanie is actually Charity? (I don't have any access to the episode so I was curious)--OrionFour 21:36, 7 January 2008 (CST)
I was thinking that could be the case as well. We'll have to rewatch the episode to see if she how Greene and Larson are addressed. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 01:30, 8 January 2008 (CST)
They don't ever seem to get referred to directly. Part of this confusion may have just been some idiot (me, most likely) arbitrarily assigning names to the kids. Here's the only clue, via Michael: "No. You see the oldest girl is my daughter. The rest are hers." That would lead me to believe the brunette is his (and is Greene), and the rest are Larsons. --Steelviper 08:36, 8 January 2008 (CST)
Haven't watched that episode in a while, so my mind is likely hazy, but I believe the only character really referenced in dialogue was Baby Walker. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 11:13, 8 January 2008 (CST)
Well, Starbuck is mistaken for Charity by one of the androids, and the fact that Starbuck is blonde may point further to Charity being the blonde one. I'll wait till somebody else reviews it (it's waited this long) before swapping the pics. --Steelviper 12:15, 8 January 2008 (CST)
Alright I've got this solved. The picture of Charity is actually of Gillian Greene, who played Melanie. I was able to confirm this through her appearance on Bonanza. I went a little further and got a picture of Tracy Justrich and was able to confirm that she plays Starla in Galactica 1980. This also means that the picture we have of the blond girl with the curly hair on The Super Scouts is probably Georgi Irene, because there were three girl super scouts total, and the two we have pictures for don't look like Michelle Larson (now confirmed to be the blonde girl in "Greetings from Earth". Here's my proof:
Gillian Greene from Bonanza
Tracy Justrich from Knot's Landing
I now officially have OCD thanks to this.--OrionFour 21:55, 10 January 2008 (CST)
Wonderful work! You may have already had OCD already and just didn't know it... :D -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 21:57, 10 January 2008 (CST)
Ok, I've fixed the images for Melanie and Charity so they are correct now. ;-) -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 22:03, 10 January 2008 (CST)
Haha thanks, I've probably had it for a while. I should note that probably the only thing more painful than watching Knot's Landing is watching Galactica 1980.--OrionFour 22:20, 10 January 2008 (CST)
