Pandora, the latest entry in a stream of new and returning summer series on The CW, is an action-packed sci-fi series set in the year 2199. Priscilla Quintana stars as Jax, a resourceful go-getter who finds herself orphaned after the colony of New Portland, where she lived with her parents, is mysteriously attacked. Following the tragedy, Jax is relocated to Earth’s Space Training Academy, where she is welcomed by the diverse assortment of students, ranging from clones to telepaths and a few alien types. The mix of characters and the actors who portray them play perfectly into The CW’s #OpenToAll and #DaretoDefy initiatives promoting diversity, inclusion and representation, but Pandora takes it all a step further. Jax is a badass. She is also bisexual.
