I've removed a bginfo sentence which stated:

"According to Simon Pegg, Commodore Paris was probably Tom's grandmother. [1]"

This info is effectively already presented in the bg info section, which is why I removed this note. --Defiant (talk) 13:28, September 5, 2019 (UTC)

Paris' bio

I haven't noticed this floating in any obvious places, and the screencap I uploaded is semi-terrible (I can make out "Starfleet Academy" in the first line) but it seems this might be worth investigating at some point. --Alan (talk) 16:07, March 18, 2020 (UTC)

From "Vis à Vis", biographical database:

France for physical training in his second semester of the Academy. [According to Academy discipline records] [Paris] spent most of his time that semester at Chez Sandrine, a bistro [near his living area].

The son of a Starfleet admiral, Tom Paris was a graduate of Starfleet Academy and was involved in a fatal accident that claimed the lives of three other Starfleet officers. Paris initially denied responsibility for the accident, but later admitted he had falsified reports to hide his culpability.

Forced to leave Starfleet Paris became a mercenary for the Maquis but was arrested by Federation authorities while on his first assignment for the resistance group.

He was imprisoned at the Federation Penal Settlement in New Zealand on Earth, but was released in 2371 at the request of Voyager captain Kathryn Janeway. In exchange for his parole, Paris agreed to help the Voyager locate his former colleagues in the Maquis.

While carrying out this mission, Paris and all Voyager personnel were swept into the Delta Quadrant, where they were forced to join forces with the Maquis crew in order to survive. Janeway subsequently reinstated Paris's Starfleet commission and assigned him to the ship's conn.

Paris experienced some discomfort at working under Commander Chakotay, a former Maquis officer.

In 2372 Paris made history by becoming the first Human pilot to cross the transwarp threshold and attain a warp 10 velocity. The experience accelerated the evolutionary process in his cellular DNA, mutating him into an amphibious creature.

So above is what appeared on screen, it was taken directly from the Star Trek Encyclopedia, I'm guessing the 1997 second edition, with a couple minor tweaks, as it omits a reference from "Fair Trade" that appears in the 1999 Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 346-347) third edition (which is where I copied the text above from). The bracketed stuff in the first paragraph is different than the STE text and is my best interpretation of the text. --Alan (talk) 03:48, March 19, 2020 (UTC)
