Biographical Information
Place of Birth: 2342, Earth

Tom is the son of Starfleet Admiral Owen Paris. Tom is an exceptional shuttle pilot. When the pressures of living up to the family name resulted in tragedy, Paris enlisted with the renegade Maquis, only to be captured and imprisoned by Starfleet. Given a second chance by Captain Janeway, Paris is determined to prove his worth. Tom's interests include 20th century Earth history and automobiles, rock climbing, and holonovel programming.

In 2375, he designed The Delta Flyer, a large warp-capable shuttle. In mid-2375, in his eagerness to help Monean scientist Riga, he ignored the Prime Directive, disobeyed a direct order, stole the Delta Flyer and attempted to destroy a Monean oxygen processing plant. Captain Janeway demoted him to the rank of Ensign and sentenced him to 30 days in the brig.
