His boss Dorn (Rainer Strecker) finally wants to increase the proportion of women and hires the self-confident Pamela (Gisa Flake) on a trial basis. The former competitive athlete not only packs a punch, but is also unimpressed by the rough tone.

Even more troubling for Rey (Daisy Ridley) is the fact that she's forged an immediate bond with her nemesis Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) across the vast expanses of space.

The local police chief Caleb Hale (Dirk Borchardt), who is actually not making any progress, does not like this.
