* WhatTheHellHero: He gives one to Scott when the latter objects to [[spoiler: Young's orders to vent the atmosphere in Telford's cell and suffocate him. It turns out Young did so so he could resuscitate Telford and break The Lucian Alliance's mind control over him. When Scott demands to know why he didn't tell him, Young angrily shoots back that he shouldn't have to always have to explain himself to Scott for him to have a little faith in his orders.]] He's also on the receiving end of one of these from General O'Neill not long after when [[spoiler: he ultimately doesn't vent the gate room into space when The Lucian Alliance uses it to board because he didn't want to kill Telford, which results in a battle that leads to hostages and multiple fatalities, including his and TJ's unborn daughter.]]

* GoodIsNotDumb: He's not a genius scientist Rush or even Eli, but he's certainly up there in terms of intellect.

* GoodIsNotDumb: He's not a genius scientist like Rush or even Eli, but he's certainly up there in terms of intellect.



* OddFriendship: With Telford, surprisingly. They start out the series hating each other's guts, but Young notes that he was never like this until recently. [[spoiler: It turns out that Telford was subjected to Goa'uld mind-control by The Lucian Alliance to make him their spy in Stargate Command, and this is largely why he has been such an asshole. Afterwards Telford feels immensely guilty, not just for the things he did, but also for the way he treated Everett.]] It says a lot that even after everything, [[spoiler: when the Lucian Alliance was boarding Destiny and the ship was at risk, Young still refused to vent the compartment if it would cost Telford's life.]]

* ExperiencedProtagonist
* GoodIsNotDumb
* TheHero

to:

* ExperiencedProtagonist
ExperiencedProtagonist: A former STG leader and a full-bird colonel in the United States Air Force. It's safe to say he's probably seen a thing or two in his time.
* GoodIsNotDumb
GoodIsNotDumb: He's not a genius scientist Rush or even Eli, but he's certainly up there in terms of intellect.
* TheHeroTheHero: A flawed but ultimately decent man with plenty of admirable qualities who takes up the burden of making sure those under his command can one day return to Earth with quiet resolve.
* HiddenDepths: Everyone assumes he's kind of a washout, but it turns out he was General O'Neill's first pick to head up the Icarus Project, only for him to turn it down. He's able to keep up with [[ManipulativeBastard Rush's]] manipulations and keep the man in his place.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: Young beats him and leaves him for dead on a lifeless rock after Rush tries to frame him for murder. It's especially this trope because Rush's entire speech to Young immediately before this event was about how Young was a liability because 'he didn't want to make the life and death decisions.' He clearly didn't think the colonel had it in him.]]

* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's a very patient and forebearing man, but when he's finally pushed too far, ''he snaps.'' This includes giving Telford a beatdown for trying to ruin his marriage behind his back and pinning Spencer against a wall when he finally gets tired of putting up with the guy's cowardly, subversive behavior. [[spoiler: He puts up with a lot of Rush's manipulations, but when Rush frames him for murder and nearly causes him to lose command of _Destiny,_ (getting Doctor Franklin hurt in the process) Young decides he's had enough, beats the ever loving shit out of him, and leaves him to die on a barren world. Afterwards, he is incredibly cold to Wray, who was very quick to throw him to the wolves.]]
