This page details Keenser in the primary universe; for the Keenser in the Kelvin timeline created by Nero's temporal incursion see Keenser (Kelvin timeline).

Keenser was a Starfleet cadet in the 23rd century, the first Roylan to leave his homeworld of Royla.


Early life[]

Keenser was bigger than a regular Roylan on Royla, making him mocked by others. In the year 2230, after first contact with his people was made by the Federation Starfleet ship USS Kelvin, Keenser demonstrated his engineering skills to the Kelvin's first officer, Lieutenant Commander George Kirk, and security officer, Lieutenant K'Bentayr, by giving them a complete diagnostic and pinpointing the problem. With his parents' best wishes, Keenser was allowed to leave with Kelvin's away team to become the first of his people to leave. He experienced space sickness on the way to the Kelvin. (TOS comic: "IDW Star Trek, Issue 14")

Starfleet service[]

By 2233 Keenser had been attending Starfleet Academy. (TOS comic: "IDW Star Trek, Issue 14")
