In various episodes of Star Trek: Discovery, we can see a character on the bridge of the eponymous USS Discovery named Airiam:
Is she supposed to be a robot or an android of some kind? Her facial features look like they are of synthetic origin, her overall appearance is decisively mechanical, and we already know about the seemingly advanced cybernetic and robotic technology of ST:DIS.
Despite what seems to be the obvious answers, it does not seem like there is a consensus about her true nature: various sources indicate her as a synthetic-human hybrid, as an alien, and as an augmented alien.
Do we have more information (maybe from interviews, production materials or other background sources) about the nature and origins of this character?
