(Poprtrayed by Warren Munson and Richard Herd)

Starfleet Admiral, instructor at Starfleet Academy, commander of the U.S.S. Al-Batani, and father of U.S.S. Voyager helmsman, Thomas Eugene Paris. A demanding taskmaster, he and his son had a tortured relationship ever since Tom was a boy. Kathryn Janeway served under Admiral Paris on the Al-Batani. After contact was made with the missing USS Voyager, Reg Barclay's Pathfinder Project and all ongoing contact with the distant ship was overseen by Paris, who was relieved to find his son and his crew were alive. The admiral even assisted the EMH Doctor in his quest for legal rights to his holonovel against an unscrupulous publisher in 2377.
