In an interview with /Film’s Vanessa Armstrong, Navia gave just a slight hint of what’s to come for the rest of the season. “We’re going to see more sides of Erica and more looks at Erica,” Navia shared, after noting that talking about the show without spoiling anything makes everything feel like “a landmine.” “We’re definitely going to see sides of Erica that we’ve never seen before,” she explained. “And we’re also going to find out more about her as a soldier, which, like I said before, everyone, the writers and the showrunners, knew about that in Season 1.”
While details have rarely surfaced on the show so far, Navia says she knew about Ortegas’ background early on. “When I booked the role, it said Erica was a pilot and soldier,” she told Armstrong. “That’s always been a big part of what I put into the character, and the way we created her is that she has this military background, and so we’re definitely going to talk about that more, c ‘is on.” While obviously all soldiers are different, I can see how Ortegas has certain qualities of a military man. She’s good at following orders, staying engaged, and prioritizing, but she’s also always up for trying a bold maneuver with the Enterprise if necessary, like she’s used to finding ways out of a scrape. .
