If you really wanted Doc to be a stranger to the others, you could have started him on Devonia, as Fritz is doing with Donoma.
One, I told you I did not care, where he started, just needed a reason on why he was there.
Two, you suggested a starting place and I said that I didn't care.
Three, IF I had known that you were going to fast forward a group of us and not some of the others, I would have been picky about where Doc started.
Four, I didn't realize that flashback/backstories were going to be an issue.
