I live in a spaceship that travels so 快地,
along with a doctor who I find 真帅的,
my features are 美丽,
my name rhymes with 内力,
it's my job to fix if the engine goes 坏了.

Who am I?

Surely you must be

Kaylee from Firefly.

First of all, all the clues are partly in Chinese.

In the series, all the cursing was done in Chinese to avoid an R rating.

I live in a spaceship that travels so 快地,

The spaceship Firefly travels very 快地.

along with a doctor who I find 真帅的,

This guy is, indeed, quite 真帅的.

my features are 美丽,

my name rhymes with 内力,

"Kaylee" does indeed rhyme with "Nèilì"

it's my job to fix if the engine goes 坏了.

She is the mechanic of the spaceship, and the engine does actually go 坏了 occasionally.

If you don't read (or speak) Chinese all too well, don't worry, neither do I, and neither did the cast.

According to google translate:

I live in a spaceship that travels so quickly,
along with a doctor who I find really handsome,
my features are beautiful,
my name rhymes with Internal force,
it's my job to fix if the engine goes broken.

Assuming the translation is a bit off so it ruins the rhyme, I'm going to guess you're:

Montgomery Scott/Scotty from Star Trek

Because:

He lives on the Enterprise.
So does Leonard McCoy/Bones, a handsome doctor.
If memory serves, he has a big ego.
Not sure about this part, but I'm guessing google translate ruined it. Scotty is the chief engineer and always fixing the engine.

    $\begingroup$ The translation looks good. This is pretty close, but like you said the fourth line doesn't really fit. $\endgroup$ – jafe Oct 10 '18 at 13:26

Not sure if it is the intended solution, but-

Space travels with doctor kinda sounds like Doctor Who, SO that would make the answer his companion - Sarah jane
