A fairly tall and well built young woman, carrying more muscle than most. She wears her brown hair cropped short, in an almost masculine and highly practical style. Her features are just a little too heavy to be particularly attractive, and, in fact, she borders on homely. However, she is possessed of a ready smile that brightens her face. Her voice carries a British accent and is surprisingly light for her appearance.

Carrie Knox was born into the hospitality business...and hated it from day one. Unlike her brother, Terrence, two years older, she had no interest in the family business. Instead, she was fascinated with science and technology.
She went to a specialist science high school, but rapidly found that she preferred practical applications to theory. In fact, her hatred of academics was such that she avoided university, instead going to an engineering trade school.
StarFleet was not initially on her career radar, but that changed when she met Lisa, who dreamed of it and pulled Carrie with her...before dying in a shuttle crash. Carrie continued, although she was not 'officer' material. Instead, she enlisted, with an engineering specialty.
It suited her practical mind and she was fortunate enough to get a deep space assignment on the elderly (which only made her more fascinating) USS Drake.
Extremely practical, whilst not being particularly smart at pure academic skills, and with no interest in leadership - Knox is not officer material, but will be a solid crewman on whatever ship she is assigned to.
She follows orders well and rarely steps outside them, although she may spend more time working than is strictly necessary. Pleasant and outgoing, she is likely to make plenty of casual friends. However, she seldom lets anyone get to the deep core of herself.
Carrie has some issues with her sexuality, namely a certain level of denial towards her attraction towards other women. It might be that this will cause tension or problems in the future. She tends to keep her heart firmly walled away.
