Wife of Everett Young. Emily was looking forward to the end of her husband's tour of duty with the U.S. Air Force, but became frustrated when he revealed that he wanted to take on a command position -- the one that would take him to Icarus Base.
Young's military priorities were not the only wrinkle in their relationship, however. Emily was aware of a past extramarital affair between her husband and Tamara Johansen, and the realization that the two were stranded across the universe together was almost too difficult for her to bear.
