Commanding Officer

Captain Tom Paris (formally Thomas Eugene Paris) is a Human Starfleet officer. He is best known for his tenure as the helmsman of the U.S.S. Voyager during the ship's journey through the Delta Quadrant in the 24th Century. He is also the husband of B'Elanna Torres and father of Lt. Commander Miral Paris. In 2410, he commands the U.S.S. Bern. As the commanding officer of Delta Flight, Paris also commands the U.S.S. Mercury.

History[edit | edit source]

The son of Admiral Owen Paris, Tom and his father had a poor relationship due to Owen pressuring him and making him feel inadequate.

In the 2360's, Tom attended Starfleet Academy and graduated with a major in astrophysics. His first posting was the U.S.S. Exeter. Tom was expelled from Starfleet after an accident on Caldik Prime led to the deaths of three of his fellow Exeter officers.

Following Tom's expulsion from Starfleet, he joined the Maquis, though was captured and imprisoned on his first mission with them.

In 2371 while serving at a Federation penal colony in New Zealand on Earth, Tom was recruited by Captain Kathryn Janeway who offered him a commuted sentence in exchange for his help in searching out the Maquis in the Badlands System. Tom accepted and was given the rank of Lt. Junior Grade and brought aboard the newly-commissioned U.S.S. Voyager as an observer. During the mission however, Voyager was hurtled 70,000 light years into the Delta Quadrant by the Caretaker. With Voyager's helmsman killed in the incident and Paris being the best candidate for the job, he accepted the posting.

Over the following eight years, Tom would help design the Delta Flyer shuttlecraft, attempt to break the transwarp threshold, marry fellow Voyager crewmember B'Elanna Torres, and with her give birth to Miral Paris before returning home to the Alpha Quadrant in 2378.

By 2410, Tom has achieved the rank of Captain and is part of the efforts to defend the Milky Way against the Iconian invasion.

Missions involved[edit | edit source]

Other involvement[edit | edit source]

  • "Tales of the War #1": Paris meets with Admiral Jorel Quinn to discuss the formation of Delta Flight.
  • "Tales of the War #22: Paris helps Captain Kagran compose letters of condolence to the families of fallen Starfleet officers.
  • "Na'kuhl": It is revealed that Captain Paris has been supplying Lieutenant Kyona with Captain Proton holonovels.
  • "Of Hawks and Doves": Administrator Kuumaarke meets with Captains Paris and Nog to discuss the Lukari ship-building program, which Starfleet is providing assistance with. The specifications provided by the Lukari Planetary Council are contradictory, with some emphasizing weaponry and durability, and others focusing on sensor and long-range capabilities. After some discussion of the merits of each approach, they agree to try to find a middle path between the two sets of specifications.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Tom Paris is voiced by Robert Duncan McNeill, the actor who played the character in Star Trek: Voyager.
  • Tom Paris is very fond of anything having to do with 20th Century Earth culture & technology, and often makes anachronistic pop culture references during the missions he appears in.
  • Some of the blogs released in conjunction with Season 10 and the first installment of Tales of the War mention that Paris was considered for promotion to Admiral and for a time was in command of Earth Spacedock prior to Fleet Admiral Jorel Quinn.
