Malcolm is beginning to realize, though, that the crew of Enterprise is different. They are his family now, and he is beginning to feel comfortable enough with them to reveal more of himself. Still, Reed was somewhat uncomfortable when Archer invited him to breakfast so that they could get to know each other better. Reed has been trained not to fraternize with his superior officers, and only feels comfortable discussing work with the captain. He also believes the captain could show a bit more caution in certain areas, though he will admit that Archer's style has its advantages.
He was an Eagle Scout with 28 merit badges, including exobiology (more than Captain Archer). His health is a bit delicate - once he was the only crewman on board to catch a head cold, apparently from a virus lurking inside a case of plasma coolant. Plus, he suffers from a number of allergies including dust mites, oak pollen, tropical grasses, and various plant enzymes, including bromelin. For several years he's been taking regular injections to help his body tolerate bromelin, because that's an enzyme found in pineapple, which he loves. When his crewmates presented him with a pineapple cake for his birthday, he was quite impressed.
Reed's knowledge of ship's weaponry, his professionalism and his dedication to duty make him vital member of the crew as Enterprise enters the mysterious area known as the Delphic Expanse.

Mr. Mayweather still carries with him some guilt over leaving his home ship, the Horizon, to join Starfleet. His father had expected him to one day take over the Draylax-Vega cargo run, but Travis' destiny led him in a different direction.
Ensign Travis Mayweather is the NX-01's resident "space boomer" - one of a generation of children born and raised on interstellar cargo freighters, which gives him natural instincts for space travel that surpass those of his crewmates. He is also one of the most skilled pilots of his time, making him uniquely qualified to sit at the helm of Starfleet's first deep-space exploration vessel.
Boundlessly enthusiastic, Travis is still bright-eyed about being in space despite having grown up there. In fact, he can't call a place home unless it comes with a pair of warp nacelles. One
