Trivia: Tom Paris was originally written to be Nick Locarno, the cadet Robert Duncan McNeil played in the 'Next Generation' episode "The First Duty." Because the character was the intellectual property of that episode's writers, royalty fees would have had to been paid for every new episode in which Locarno appeared. To avoid the unnecessary expense, the 'Voyager' producers instead created a new character, using Locarno as a building block.Cubs Fan
