Woman from one of the planets in the Minaran star system selected by the Vians and tested in 2268 to see if her race would be spared the destruction of the impending nova.
Kirk, Spock, and Dr. McCoy were also captured and subjected to various forms of torture while Gem watched, observing their compassion and willingness to sacrifice their lives to one another. The Vians then observed Gem's reaction, and whether Gem learned the sense of compassion and sacrifice. Gem was a Minaran empath and was willing to give her life to save Dr. McCoy from his injuries, which were inflicted by the Vians. This action convinced the Vians that her civilization was the one to be saved from extionction. ("The Empath")
