Ensign Layla Antar
Layla Antar was once a rising star, a promising young officer, and a talented test pilot. But her career has been pockmarked by disciplinary issues, a hot-headed arrogance turned to a surly disagreeability as superiors have tried to rein her in. Black marks were overlooked in the face of the Romulan War, until a disagreement where Antar struck her commanding officer; she was consequently demoted and grounded. Only the Phoenix NX-08's desperate need for qualified staff has put her at a helm again, in an arrangement which seems to suit nobody.
