Heather Jarman commented: "I did get to create a new minor character--the counselor that replaces Ezri on DS9. After Deanna and Ezri, I had fun playing with a new shrink-head. I hope to do more with Lieutenant Commander Phillipa Matthias and her family in the future. Her husband is a Bajoran, an orphan exiled during the Occupation, and I think he could offer an 'everyman' kind of POV...In Phillipa, I wanted to create a normal person--a well-educated, well-rounded person who didn't have any extraordinary abilities or celebrity parents or infamous history. With the O'Briens being gone, I think we're missing that mom-dad-kids dynamic that provides a counterpoint to all the angst going on with everyone else". [1]

In Star Trek Online Matthias is voiced by Lani Minella, who also plays Subcommander Mivek, Admiral T'nae, and provides the voice for the Federation computer (following Majel Barrett's death).
