Professor Daryl Embrey was the head of the Ministry of Computer Science. Embrey ordered the computer to be shut off after some of B.D. Andrews men expressed concern at how he had ordered that the previously unused and untested computer from the SDF-1, the E.V.E., is to send it's data to a dead satellite, which could be infiltrated by the enemy. When Andrews retaliates, Embrey tries to escape to Alaska Base, with his daughter, where the master control for the E.V.E. is in a last ditch effort to shut down the computer and stop Andrews.
