Lieutenant Taewon Narang was the Science Officer of Lexington. He had studied quantum chemistry as a hobby and was fascinated with the Arika alloy. He lived in A1.

He was interested in Erebus and Delta Pavonis V and used to read "Theory of Artificial Quantum Singularities III - The Role of Virtual Particle Creation in Energy Production". He rebuffed the rumors that the mission was about a new Earth-type world. He also could know the Lexington's classified position but would not tell. He had a heated argument with James Poole on April 20 over the causes of the war when some of the officers were relaxing in the Wardroom.
