New crew suggestions: a pachyderm and something mouldy

Please can I suggest two new oddball crew:

Elephant - reference Shore Leave - a scene using an elephant was cut before filming. Gregg Peters, newly promoted to the rank of assistant director, had been detailed to take care of the elephant. During the shoot, the cast and crew teased him about the pachyderm, asking when it would be used. For many years thereafter, when Peters attended Star Trek conventions, the fans would greet him with a chorus of, "Say, Gregg, when do you get to use your elephant?" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shore_Leave_(Star_Trek:_The_Original_Series)

Cheese - reference Learning Curve - "Get the cheese to sickbay" - Neelix nearly destroys Voyager trying to make his own cheese, which is resolved by giving the ship "a fever", curing its biological systems https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Learning_Curve_(Star_Trek:_Voyager)

    The cheese should be depicted in its native bell jar and have skills medicine (in sick bay), command (commandeered the ship), engineering (in honor of Torres). It should come with the voice line "get this cheese to sick bay". If Original Timelines character, I suggest it should have tentacles.

    The elephant should be pink and wear a tutu as it served for decades as the elephant in the room.
