In 2258 of the alternate reality, Keenser was working with 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. It was clear that they were fond of each other, however; Keenser, in particular, was saddened when Scott transported with Kirk to the USS Enterprise.

Keenser appeared in the Esurance automobile insurance company flash game "Delta Vega: Meltdown on the Ice Planet (β)," where he was rescued by Esurance advertising mascot Erin Esurance. He also appeared in the Star Trek game, where he was depicted as color blind.
