Doctor Brown was a male Human civilian of the 23rd century. He was an assistant to Dr. Roger Korby and a friend of Christine Chapel. Her affectionate name for him was "Brownie".

Sometime after arriving on Exo III in 2261, with Ruk's help and with the records he could find, Korby constructed an android copy of Brown. In 2266, Chapel evidently felt Brown's reaction to seeing her was less than she expected; when Kirk noted this, she attributed it to five years spent in the dark ruins of Exo III.

Korby did not wish for Kirk to communicate with his ship. To prevent him from doing so, Brown threatened him with a phaser, and during a brief scuffle that followed, Brown was shot at close range, damaging him enough to render him inert.

Events at Exo III ultimately revealed that android copies of living beings weren't the precise duplicates Korby believed; this may have accounted for Brown's reduced emotional response to Christine Chapel, and his somewhat simplistic behavior. (TOS: "What Are Little Girls Made Of?")

Dr. Brown was portrayed by Harry Basch.
In the script of "What Are Little Girls Made Of?", the android version of Brown was described as "a rather ordinary looking man, mid-forties" and, in an ultimately unused line of dialogue, the Human Brown was said to have been dying when Dr. Korby created the android copy of him. [1]
A new Brown android made an appearance in the Pocket Books novel Double, Double. The android identified himself as Dr. Aaron Brown.
