Multiple realities
(covers information from several alternate timelines)
"Do you believe every sad story you hear?"
– Kalara to James T. Kirk, 2263 (Star Trek Beyond)

Kalara, formerly Jessica Wolff, was a Human female who served as a Federation Starfleet officer until she was stranded on the planet Altamid. Wolff became the alien Kalara after the use of energy transference technology severely mutated her body.

Early careerEdit

Wolff served as a Starfleet officer during the 22nd century serving onboard the USS Franklin. In 2164, the Franklin was displaced by a wormhole while inside the Gagarin Radiation Belt. The ship crashed on the distant planet Altamid, with Captain Balthazar Edison, Anderson Le and herself as the only survivors. (Star Trek Beyond)

Stranded on AltamidEdit

Becoming KalaraEdit

On Altamid, Edison, Le and Wolff found technology left behind by a previous civilization, including Swarm ships, a drone workforce, and an energy transference process that allowed her to "drain" other individuals to prolong her own life. Using their newly acquired Swarm, Edison, Le and Wolff captured scores of alien ships and drained their crews to survive, which also mutated their biology to resemble that of their victims. In time, Wolff became "Kalara", suppressing much of her Human identity and ceasing to speak in English. (Star Trek Beyond)

Searching for the Abronath Edit

In 2263 of an alternate reality, Kalara was sent by Krall to the Federation Starbase Yorktown to pose as an alien in distress in order to lure the USS Enterprise to Altamid where it was attacked by Krall's forces. Surviving the destruction of the Enterprise aboard a Kelvin pod, Kalara joined Captain James T. Kirk and Ensign Pavel Chekov on the surface of Altamid. Boarding the wreckage of the Enterprise's primary hull, Kalara hoped Kirk and Chekov would lead her to the artifact and super-weapon Abronath, but was tricked by Kirk into sending a communications signal to Krall, thereby exposing his location on the planet.

Kalara's death by the saucer section

Reinforced by several Swarm soldiers, Kalara engaged Kirk and Chekov in a firefight, but was waylaid by the Starfleet officers when they engaged the crippled Enterprise's thrusters and escaped back to the surface of Altamid. Managing to escape the ship herself, Kalara gave pursuit but was killed when the Enterprise saucer section, propelled by the firing thrusters, flipped and crushed her. (Star Trek Beyond)

Background informationEdit

Kalara was played by actress Lydia Wilson. Her alien voiceovers were provided by Sara Maria Forsberg.

The make-up for Kalara was designed by Joel Harlow. "Kalara was extremely difficult," he said, "because her face was so smooth. It had to be done in one piece – if I broke it anywhere you would see the edge. It was basically an entire face that had to be glued on." (Cinefex, No. 148, p. 85)
