Dr Ginger Corvette (birth name Con Ming-Zingibera) was an anthropologist.
Corvette met Leela on Mars and proceeded to join her, the Fourth Doctor and K9 Mark I to solve the mystery of the dying fish. In the process, they joined up with the members of Redpeace to try to prove the Ares Corporation's involvement in several terrorist attacks.
When they had defeated Paul Ares, they escaped on the Doctor's boat, the Dejah Thoris. There, the Doctor exposed Corvette as a traitor, working with Ares to help discredit Redpeace. Corvette was killed by the Last Martian. (PROSE: Crimson Dawn)
