Lieutenant Commander Cox is the 3rd in line of the command structure of the battlecarrier Excalibur. While she grew up as a military brat, she is a dedicated officer and has worked very hard to get where she is. She knows what is like to be a lady.
She has flirtatious side off duty that can at times appear as a sassy comment when on duty. Do not cross her or you'll be scrubbing the floor of the cargo holds with a finger sized brush at the brisk morning hour of 0400. The Lieutenant Commander caught Admiral Owden’s eye as being a good candidate specifically for command when she was in the academy. He was most impressed with her teachability and adaptability in a crisis. It is one of the reasons Admiral Owden has the Lieutenant Commander high in Excalibur's command structure.
