|Rank||Senior Chief Petty Officer|
- Reez: "And he returns triumphant with our princess."
- Rahman: "Don't you mean your queen?"
- Reez: "Sorry, your majesty."
A veteran of the service, Reez had previously served aboard the USS Tempest and was severely injured during a major accident aboard that ship in 2383. The engineers had been working on refinements to the ship's intermix chamber. The core began overheating to critical levels, despite the engagement of all plasma coolant tanks feeding into the system. When Reez and another engineer named Roshanara Rahman began evacuating the warp core compartment in preparation for ejection of the core, one of the plasma coolant tanks cracked, blinding Reez.
Rahman went back to Reez's aid, and both engineers were now trapped in the isolated compartment. Facing an imminent core breach, Lt. Commander Montanez, the chief engineer of the Tempest, continued with the warp core ejection, knowing that the two engineers would face painful, horrific deaths once the actively feeding plasma coolant system ruptured. Fortunately, Rahman's quick thinking protected the two engineers from the subsequent flood of plasma coolant.
Afterward, Reez underwent rehabilitation along with Rahman on Medical Starbase 253, and he was outfitted with ocular implants to give him his sight back. He eventually returned to active duty, this time aboard the Venture. In late 2389, upon learning that Rahman had become chief engineer of the USS Mercury, he sought transfer to that vessel, fulfilling a promise he had made to her after the accident.
The 89-year-old Denobulan is a father and married to three wives, one of whom is an engineer herself.
