Tom Paris, the son of Admiral Owen Paris whom Captain Janeway served under, majored in astrophysics
while at Starfleet Academy. As a cadet, Paris chose the Starfleet base in Marseilles, France for
physical training during his second semester. He recreated Chez Sandrine, a bistro in Marseilles in
Voyager's holodeck. While serving on the USS Exeter he was involved in a fatal accident that claimed
the lives of three other Starfleet officers. After admitting to falsifying reports to hide his
culpability, he was forced out of Starfleet. Paris later joined the Maquis as a mercenary, but arrested
by Federation authorities on his first mission and sent to the penal settlement in New Zealand on Earth.
In 2371, at request of Captain Janeway, he was temporarly paroled to assist Voyager in searching for
a missing Maquis raider in the badlands. Shortly after joining Voyager from Deep Space-9, Voyager was
swepted into the Delta Quadrant. Janeway reinstated Paris's Starfleet commission at the rank of
lieutentant junior grade as Voyager's pilot assigned to the conn and later, nurse in sickbay. In 2372,
Paris was the first human to break the warp 10 threshold. In 2375, he designed the Delta Flyer, a new
advanced shuttle. That same year he was demoted to ensign for breaking the Prime Directive and held
in the brig for 30 days. His rank of LTJG was reinstated at the end of 2376.
Robert Duncan McNeill previously played Cadet Nick Locarno in "The First Duty" - TNG. His middle
name is in honor of Gene Roddenberry.
