Commander Nhan was a 23rd century female Barzan Federation Starfleet officer. During her career, she would serve on at least two Federation starships, the USS Discovery and the USS Enterprise.

Starfleet career

Serving on the Enterprise

As some point during her life, Nhan joined Starfleet where by 2257, would obtain the rank of Commander, and was serving as an engineer aboard the USS Enterprise under Captain Christopher Pike. (DIS: "Brother")

Serving on the Discovery

Along with Evan Connolly, she accompanied Captain Pike onto the USS Discovery when the Enterprise suffered a malfunction. She was also a part of the team that investigated the crashed wreckage of the USS Hiawatha. (DIS: "Brother")

Nhan later transferred to the Discovery and served on the bridge crew, later assigned as chief of security. (DIS: "An Obol for Charon", "Saints of Imperfection")

Nhan accompanied Michael Burnham and Airiam to board Section 31 Headquarters, which led to a series of events where she had to eject Airiam from the airlock before Control could take the Sphere's data. (DIS: "Project Daedalus")

She attended Airiam's funeral afterwards, and later apologized to Burnham for her actions. Burnham assured Nhan that she did the right thing. (DIS: "The Red Angel")
