|Family|| Skye Tate, daughter|
Before Terra NovaEdit
She had a daughter, Skye, with a unknown man.
At Terra NovaEdit
Deborah was stricken with Sincyllic Fever and was believed to have died at or close to the same time as her husband; however she somehow traveled to the Sixers camp, where she is being treated with a medicine that apparently alleviates the symptoms of the fever but does not cure it. The Sixers withhold treatment from Deborah if Skye fails to provide intelligence to them.
Deborah later learns the truth from Skye on what the Sixers made her do to guarantee Deborah's survival. Deborah states that she is proud of her no matter what and that her father would've felt the same way. Deborah and the medicine were later extracted from the Sixers' camp by Curran and brought to Terra Nova. Nathaniel Taylor was surprised that she was kept alive all this time as Elisabeth Shannon plans to have a synthetic copy of the medicine the Sixers have been giving her.
- On the extended version of "Occupation-Resistance" released on the Season 1 boxset, Deborah encourages Skye to apologize to Taylor (as they'd been at odds since he found out she was the Sixer spy) when he and the other soldiers are about to leave the colony to welcome the Eleventh Pilgrimage and the possible army that would go through the portal.
- How was her death faked?
