aliens: Star Trek – Airiam

Star Trek: Airiam

Ten years before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise, the USS Discovery discovers new worlds and lifeforms.

In Star Trek: Discovery Airiam (Sara Mitich) is science officer on Discovery; she is a ‘synthetic-human hybrid’ or ‘augmented human’. As a recurring character she appears in a number of episodes in the first season but has no storyline or backstory (unusual where there is such an investment in character design and makeup) – maybe in the second season.

The makeup

Colin Penman was the makeup department head; Indiana Allemang was the key makeup artist.

Glenn Hetrick (Alchemy Studios) & James MacKinnon were the joint heads of prosthetic & special F/X makeup; Paul Jones (Paul Jones Effects Studio) was responsible for additional prosthetic makeup (Toronto).
