Background: Emmett is the oldest son of Warren and Ruth Ann Carter. His wife, Melody, died in the same plane crash that claimed his father's life. Emmett doesn't live at the central ranch house with the rest of the Carters - instead he maintains a cabin a few miles from the main house. Emmett is an accomplished mechanic, as well as an experienced gunsmith and marksman.
When the Fleet departed Oasis, Emmett remained on the planet.
