Stephanie Harshaw

Stephanie Harshaw is an astrobotanist selected to join the Saena crew in Joel’s place when it is determined he will not be able to join. They are aware of each other in their respective fields (Joel focuses on human life in space, Stephanie on plant life); this translates into a bit of a rivalry leading up to the launch of the Saena. Once aboard, Stephanie becomes Leila’s confidant, and later partner.
