Lieutenant junior grade Kayshon was a Tamarian male who lived during the late 24th century. He was the first of his people to serve in Starfleet, and served as an operations division security officer.

In 2381, he was assigned to the USS Cerritos as the ship's new head of security. On his first away team mission, he joined several Cerritos lower deckers in cataloguing the treasures of noted collector Kerner Hauze. An energy beam on Hauze's ship turned Kayshon into a puppet, but Dr. T'Ana was ultimately able to restore him. (LD: "Kayshon, His Eyes Open")

Shortly thereafter, he was present on the bridge when Lieutenant Tom Paris visited the Cerritos. He laughed at Captain Carol Freeman's joke about not getting them lost in the Delta Quadrant when she allowed Paris to take the conn. (LD: "We'll Always Have Tom Paris")

He attempted to lose weight, but had difficulty due to the convenience of replicators. (LD: "wej Duj")

Kayshon could generally be understood by his shipmates. However, the universal translator occasionally slipped up, and presented his speech as Tamarian cultural references. (LD: "Kayshon, His Eyes Open", "The Spy Humongous")

He later participated in the training drills presented by Shari yn Yem . (LD: "I, Excretus")
