Kheireddin Reis, pirate, killer, slaver, plunderer of 100 worlds and hunted across a dozen sectors by his enemies, most notably the Imperial Klingon State and the Federation. Quite a legacy to live up to for any Orion but even more so for his grandson and namesake, scion of the now respectable Reis trading company.

Following the pirate Reis's disappearance with his ship 'Heavens Fist' 52 years ago after a fateful confrontation with the USS Enterprise, in which the crippled ship disappeared down a worm hole with all hands. Rumours persist to this day that the Fist's holds were stuffed with the fruits of successful plunder including examples of cloaking technology belonging to the Romulan's and the sword S'harien -Pierceblood.

After Kheireddin's disappearance his favourite concubine (the only one to have given him a son) Gaila, seized his known wealth and used this ill gotten gains to buy forgiveness from the federation and found a merchant house, which she controls to this day. Realising quickly that the Orion colonies were weak and divided Gaila was ruthless in tying her houses fate to the Federation and it was her decision which saw young Kheireddin join the Starfleet academy in 2340.

Reis did not make a good first impression on his instructors, arriving with four concubines and an unwillingness to take orders from those he considered to be his social inferiors. It was only through judicious applications of his grandmothers money and influence that he survived the four years of basic training.

None could say Reis didn't learn though from his mistakes, entering the security branch in accordance with his grandmothers wishes (who wanted access to the Federations records on Kheireddin's encounter with the Enterprise), he learned how to fight, but more important how to keep tabs on his fellows, one never knew when knowing a fellow officers dirty little secrets or interests could prove useful for ingraciating himself to a superior or disgracing a competitor).

Despite serving without distinction on the Robert April and Vladivostok, his grandmothers money and his own extra curicular activities ensured his continued advancement. Reis was instrumental in providing Gaila with the results of surveys and contacts with new worlds months before her competion heard of these opportunities often allowing her to set up monopolies and acquire new technologies for market. A number of retired star fleet officers sat on her boards of directors and the Reis Corporations links to the Federation grew.

Serving on the M'Benga, Reis nearly died in a shuttle accident which took the lives of his entire security team, though officially this was written up as an accident, unofficially Winch Corp had discovered how Gaila was getting the jump on her competition and decided to level the playing field a bit. A nasty Corporate war was fought for months until Winch Corp was brought up by Reis Group after the loss of dozens of defence and colony supply contracts.

For his own protection Kheireddin started taking an interest in his duties appointing those who were competent rather than lickspittles and flatterers, realising his own survival might depend on his teams skills and for the first time was promoted on his own merit. On other side effect of the incident was Kheireddin had a fear of boarding any shuttle he did not personally fly and even then was uncomfortable, preferring transporter technology.

Reis next posting was to the USS Ares where he was involved in a number of boarding actions against Orion pirates (conveniently all from clans that were hostile to his family), his use of Star Fleet kill teams to knock out critical enemy personnel, thus minimising casulties amongst the rank and file was applauded and he was swiftly promoted and sent back to California to train cadets at the academy.

It was here that Kheireddin fell in love with the zero G ballet dancer Taris and neglected his duties to spend time with her, it was regretable that she was exposed as a Romulan spying for the Imperial Klingon State by Lt Junior Grade La Forge, worse that Reis apparently botched the attempt to arrest her leading to her hijacking a shuttle and successfully fleeing to Remus and it would be catastrophic to his career were it known that the two of them shared a highly encripted communication still, in part in an attempt to trace 'Heaven's Fist,' to see what could be salvaged.

Facing a court martial and dishonourable discharge Reis was saved by Admiral Cunningham, who sent the newly promoted Geordie La Forge to the Enterprise before whitewashing the whole affair, posting Kheireddin to the Royal Andor which was being sent on a long voyage to explore a newly discovered sector of space. Duty done Cunningham promptly retired to a directorship in one of Reis Corps subsiduries.

Reis dutifully sent reports of interesting worlds to his grandmother and in the main served four quiet years, only interupted by one short war, mainly gaming with the crew. It was here he met crewman Simon Frost an engineer with a passion for the holodeck and cards. After pardoning a few debts Reis had a friend for life and someone who was happy to spend hours programming the holo decks with training programmes for security teams and other more profitable programmes such as 'Dread Pirate Reis' the most profitable holo deck program of 2359, which made Kheireddin himself a considerable sum of money.

With a little careful investment of funds, Reis and Senior Crewman Frost were able to buy promotions onto the USS Stephen Decatur hoping for a quiet life, but sadly were once again plunged into a war zone, an enviroment in which Kheireddin ironically thrived, losing only 13 of his security personnel in the whole war. Regretably this was to a crewman Michael Knight who was driven insane by months spent as a prisoner of the Kzinti rebels they were fighting and who ran annok in the rec deck with a phaser, killing or injuring 45 crew before he was put down. After this incident Reis banned non security personnel from carrying weapons outside designated areas with the exception of red alerts and kept a kill team in the transport bay ready for immediate deployment at all times, this led to the next Kzinti Manturian candidate being stopped in seconds.

Reis arranged to be posted to the Dauntless after Taris contacted him, informing him that it was believed another entry to the wormhole which 'Heaven's Fist fell into opened into the sector the ship was due to patrol. Kheireddin was promoted once again thanks to an extremely favourable report from his captain and with Lt Junior Grade Frost,he would begin setting about moulding the Security Section to his own idea of efficiency and continue profitting from the ships explorations.
