    Bunnicorns are cute and Kestra should not be shooting them.

    She murdered the rabbit equivalent of Twilight Sparkle. :(

    That said, her hair hanging down as she hung off her bunk to chat to Soji was very adorable.

    So I was curious to find out if Kestra was empathic to any degree.

    How old is this kid supposed to be?

    It was venomous though so I'm picturing more of this:

    So you're saying ugly animals, on the other hand, deserve to die!

    Just kidding ;). I have the same cute animal bias :).

    She's 3/4 human and 1/4 Betazoid. So I suppose the chances of her being empathic might be relatively lower than if she were half Betazoid. That is, unless the writers want her to be empathic, then the odds get much better.

    The actress is 14, so I'm guessing the character is something like that. She did seem 13 to 14-ish, but seeing how she lives a bit of a sheltered life in the woods (or it appears she does) the character could appear younger than she is/be less street-wise.

    Kestra is probably empathetic on some level. She may not even be consciously aware of it. It could be more intuitive.

    The actress was very could. Child actors who can act aren’t common but they do exist.

    One interesting thing. This amazing child who played Kestra is Brian Brophy's granddaughter.

    Actually, I thought she was appropriating from Princess Mononoke. Geez, she looked like she stepped right out of a Miyazaki film!

    Took a shine to the actress. Somewhat less to her character.

    We'll sadly never get to see these two characters together onscreen but Lwaxana and Kestra woud be a fun to watch.

    I liked the Kestra character a great deal.

    True. Because I can't think of a more outrageous recast than the Maddox replacement. A recast of Lwaxana Troi! Majel would turn in her grave.
