It is unclear if Kamin really existed and volunteered for the project and thus had his memories imprinted onto the probe. It is possible that he was an amalgam of several people's memories supplemented by detailed materials about his planet's culture. He relates very specific details about his culture such as customs and his memories seem to be focused on key events such as marriage, having a family and in many respects are ideal representations of a person's life.

Speculation. --LauraCC (talk) 16:52, August 10, 2016 (UTC)

While never stated in the show, IRL it has been confirmed that Kamin was not a real person and was, instead, a simulation created specifically for the probe. Hence why he has memories of the probe leaving, all of the memories are artificial. --Peter 10 (talk) 01:58, August 24, 2016 (UTC)

Where was that said? If you can find a link to cite, that would work well as a background note rather than as part of the text. --LauraCC (talk) 15:58, August 24, 2016 (UTC)

The writer, Morgan Gendel, stated it at Phoenix Comic Con in 2011 on a panel he held. Unfortunately I can not seem to find a recording of the panel. I was there personally and was the one who asked him how Kamin had memories of the rocket launching if the memories would have had to have already been aboard. That's when he replied about how the entire persona and life of Kamin was created solely for the probe. --Peter 10 (talk) 01:10, August 25, 2016 (UTC)

Okay. Great. But saying things like "it is possible that" generally isn't done as an in-universe note. As I said, it would make more sense as a background note. :) It's neat that you know personally because you asked. :) --LauraCC (talk) 16:34, August 25, 2016 (UTC)

Right, I understand that. I'm not the person who originally added the information you removed. I just knew this piece of trivia and wanted to know if/how it could be used on the page. --Peter 10 (talk) 16:44, August 25, 2016 (UTC)

Then I wonder who it was? Someone else who was there and heard you, mayhaps? :) Yes, it could be used as unofficial but interesting info. :) --LauraCC (talk) 16:48, August 25, 2016 (UTC)

Removed #2 Edit

It unclear if Kamin was a real person or a simulation created specifically for the probe. It is reasonable to assume that Kamin was a fabrication, specifically designed for the probe. Specifically, Kamin relates very specific details about Kataan's customs and society. Additionally, Kamin's life, in many respects, seems idealized focusing on family life.
