We finally set our sights on Tom Paris. I admit that gingers are my weakness, so I’ve always had a bit of a crush on Paris. Jeff Gamet of Smile Software and former editor at The MacObserver (who happens to be a ginger) is this episode’s guest as we talk about what makes Paris tick, and why his character is redeemable.
This episode’s homework is “Thirty Days,” which shows us how Paris gets demoted and confined to the brig. So even if you don’t like Tom, maybe you’ll enjoy watching him be dressed down by a very angry Captain Janeway.
