Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has released a first-look photo of the new recurring engineer character Pelia, who will be joining the series in the upcoming Season 2. Played by Emmy and Oscar-nominee Carol Kane (The Princess Bride, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Pelia is described as "highly educated and intelligent, this engineer suffers no fools. Pelia solves problems calmly and brusquely, thanks to her many years of experience." Sounds like she'll fit in just fine with the skilled coordination and wonderfully barbed banter of the Enterprise crew.
