chief medical officer, Dr. Carolyn Lam is a civilian given the plum appointment by General Jack O'Neill
himself. She is General Hank Landry's
daughter, and arrived on the base soon after he took command. Their relationship has been strained for years, and she has implied that she might have turned down the job had she been told that Landry would be in charge.
Carolyn maintains a relationship with her mother, Kim Lam, from whom the General is separated. As a child her father was often gone, often unable to tell her and her mother about what he was doing, because of his line of work. It's something that drove a wedge between them from a young age, and that Carolyn is only now beginning to understand now that she herself works at a top-secret government facility. After serving with him for two years, Carolyn's relationship with her father was markedly improved.
Lam replaced Dr. Janet Fraiser more than a year after Fraiser's tragic death in the line of duty.
