He hasn’t been to FedCon in a long time, so it was about time: Dominic Keating, well known due to his role as Malcolm Reed, is coming to FedCon 25.
Malcolm Reed – Star Trek: Enterprise
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed stems from an old British military family and serves as tactical Officer and chief of security on Enterprise-NX01. Reed is very introverted, he has little contact to his family or to other people. He also doesn't have deep friendships and only little private contact with Commander Trip Tucker on Enterprise-NX01. Reed is careful and suspicious concerning other species. In his opinion, Captain Jonathan Archer often is too careless. Reed is allergic to dust mites, oak pollen, tropical grasses and various plant enzymes, including bromelin, which, ironically, is found in pineapples, his favorite food. So in order to enjoy pineapples, he needs medicine regularely.
