This is Jaylah. She's a new character in Star Trek Beyond, and she's utterly badass. See for yourself:

1. Watch her stick it to some baddies.

2. Look on in awe as she literally kicks all kinds of ass.

Jaylah doesn't discriminate.

3. She will even take one for the team if she has to.

Taking out a henchman on a leap of faith? Check.

4. With just one look, she strikes fear into the hearts of her enemies.

*runs*

5. Her roar is fierce and terrifying.

*slayed*

6. She knows things...

7. ...like all the dopest, off-the-beaten-path sites that the alien world you're currently stuck on has to offer...

8. ...or crucial bits of intel about the vacay spot you booked this summer.

OK, so Cancún's out then.

9. She's always there to lend you a hand when you need it.
