Are Keenser and Lily Dog Galactically Related?
F.Y.Y = Keenser as a Roylan from the planet of Royla, where he lived with his parents. He was often ridiculed by his so-called "Roylan Friends" because he was taller than all the others of his kind. In 2230, after first contact with his people was made by the Federation Starfleet ship USS Kevlin, Keenser demonstrated his engineering skills to the Kelvin's first officier, Lt. Cmdr. George Kirk (father of James Tiberius Kirk) and security officer Lt. K'Bentayr by giving them a complete diagnostic and pinpointing the problem. With his parents' best wishes, Keenser was allowed to leave with the USS Kelvin's away team. Keenser of has the rank of Lieutenant Keenser and ended up working with Lt. Cmdr. Montgomery Scott at an automated Federation outpost on Delta Vega. He was Scott's only company for months before Spock and James T. Kirk arrived. Scott often belittled and berated Keenser, particularly regarding Keenser's tendency to climb up on things and the fact that his species required very little food. In actuality, it is very clear that they are equally fond of each other.
