Crewman Kellin was a Human member of Starfleet in the 24th century.

In 2375, during the Dominion War, he was assigned to AR-558, a planet that the Federation Alliance had captured from the Dominion. His commanding officers were Captain Loomis, and Commander Parker. Fellow members of his unit included Reese, Vargas and Nadia Larkin.

Eight months later, the majority of the original members assigned to protect the planet's communication array were dead, including Loomis and Parker. Larkin now commanded the troops. Kellin was killed in the final Jem'Hadar attack against AR-558 before the arrival of reinforcements and relief from the USS Veracruz. (DS9: "The Siege of AR-558")

Kellin was played by Babylon 5 and Lost in Space star Bill Mumy. The actor had wanted to appear on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine ever since the show's first season, and was offered many alien roles. He waited until he was offered a Human role.
According to the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion, Kellin's name is an homage to film actor Mike Kellin, who appeared in the film Hell Is for Heroes. Mumy and Kellin worked together in one episode of Lost in Space.
