Or "Andy" as ford calls her, as according to the opening of this video:
I think that she is going to be like this alien secret agent sent to earth by one of the rival alien factions to steal info from adams.
and on the whole "love interest" side of things i was kinda hoping that the reporter chick would be it. she was hot lolz
you could barely see her and she was always on TV news reports that were all staticky. but from what i could make out though... wow. check out the comic book. shes got an april o'niel thing going on lol
