Episode Involvement (Contains Minor Spoilers)[]

Lang was introduced in "Brothers in Arms", attempting to apprehend Castithan fugitive Pol Madis.  In "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times" he returned, attempting to bring displaced astronaut Gordon McClintock back to the E-Rep.  In "If I Ever Leave This World Alive", he and Joshua Nolan raced to find a cure for a plague afflicting the people of Defiance. His ultimate aim, politically, was to help bring Defiance under E-Rep control.

He is deceased, killed by Datak Tarr.


Connor Lang is a ranking member of the E-Rep from the East Coast who, by his own admission, has a great deal of clout.  In "Brothers in Arms", Lang indicated he and Amanda Rosewater had been in a relationship, which had broken off mysteriously.  Lang, however, was interested in rekindling the romance and attempted to woo Amanda while they searched for Pol Madis.  Indeed, he offered to take her from Defiance to protect her.

In "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", Lang stated that he and Amanda could have been "a family."  This was elaborated on in "If I Ever Leave This World Alive", wherein he revealed that their three-year relationship had ended after Amanda had conceived.  Amanda ultimately chose to terminate the pregnancy.
