Thelin later in his Starfleet career

Thelin th'Valrass was a half-Andorian/half-Aenar thaan who served in Starfleet in the 23rd century.

Commander Thelin served as second-in-command of the USS Ticonderoga. One year after his posting, he was killed in an avalanche during a survey of an unexplored planet. (TOS novel: The Fire and the Rose)

It is unclear when Thelin's assignment and death took place, but would seem to be in the same general time as the events of "Yesteryear".

Alternate universes

Commander Thelin in 2269

In an alternate universe created by the death of Spock in 2237, Thelin became first officer aboard the USS Enterprise in 2264, and continued to serve in that capacity until 2269, when he resigned from Starfleet and join the Andorian Science Institute. (TAS episode: "Yesteryear"; TOS novel: The Fire and the Rose; TOS - Myriad Universes novel: The Chimes at Midnight)

In 2272 of the same timeline, Thelin was engaged to Thali sh'Dani but the Eveste Elders would not allow them to mate so they broke up. Due to the trauma of this event Thelin decided to rejoin Starfleet. Also in this timeline, Thelin was promoted to Captain and given command of the Enterprise at some point before engaging Khan Noonien Singh.

In the 2280s, Thelin was present at the destruction of the USS Enterprise by Kruge and the ravaging of Earth by the Cetacean Probe. He also led the attempt to reclaim Earth's atmosphere aboard the USS Copernicus, but was stopped when the Klingons invaded Earth.

In the ensuing war Thelin was promoted to admiral and led forces in combat, including a succesful campaign in the Archanis sector. He was then chosen to take the IKS Katai (a Klingon vessel Thelin had captured) and deploy the Genesis Device on Praxis ending the war. After this action Thelin was considered a war criminal by the Klingons and was voluntarily extradited to the Empire for trial to maintain the new, fragile peace. (TOS - Myriad Universes novel: The Chimes at Midnight)
