Another Star Trek: Voyager actor joins the five that are already voicing characters in the Star Trek: Online game.

Robert Duncan McNeill, who played Tom Paris, has joined the voice cast of the Trek-themed MMORPG.

Star Trek Online is pleased to announce that Star Trek: Voyager star Robert McNeill will be joining the cast of Star Trek Online and reprising his role as Tom Paris.

“The quintessential pilot, Paris was always the risk taker on Voyager. His rebellious streak would get him in trouble (and occasionally busted in rank) but it also got Voyager out of more than one tough scrape. Without him, the ship would have never made it home.

“Since returning to the Alpha Quadrant, Paris stayed in Starfleet and raised a family with B’Elanna. Rising (and falling) through the ranks, Paris now commands his own ship. He has a reputation for taking on the most difficult and dangerous missions, and is a valued member of Starfleet. Just don’t ask about that time they tried to make him an admiral. It didn’t work out.”

McNeill joins Jeri Ryan, Ethan Phillips, Robert Picardo, Garrett Wang, and Tim Russ.

Players will see Paris beginning in Season Ten, which begins April 21. In Season Ten of Star Trek Online, “the conclusion of a conflict [begins] that has been brewing in Star Trek Online for more than five years. The newest season reintroduces the Iconians – an ancient race that has remained dormant for years waiting for their time to strike. As the war approaches, new captains will emerge from Delta Recruitment to bolster forces in defense of the galaxy. It is up to Star Trek Online players to push back the forces of the Iconians. If they don’t succeed, there might be no galaxy left to fight for.”

  1. In the “expanded” Trek universe, even a convicted criminal can wind up with his own ship. Apparently they even tried to promote him to admiral, which is beyond ridiculous.

    Starfleet is so busy promoting everything with a pulse to the admiralty, it’s amazing they have anyone left to actually crew their vessels.

  2. There is precedent–Thomas Cochrane, Rear Admiral, RN, and head of the Chilean Navy during its war of independence, was someone made Admiral….after a conviction for stock fraud. A considerable while after, and needing a royal pardon, but was made a real serving admiral nonetheless.

    Cochrane was the inspiration for both Horatio Hornblower and Jack Aubrey (“Master and Commander”–the taking of a larger and mor powerful Spanish Xebec in that book is a direct homage of Cochrane doing the same in HMS Speedy).

  3. Does every balding man today go in for hair replacement simply because it’s available?

  4. No, but in the 24th century when it doesn’t cost anything and probably takes 5 seconds to do… lol.

  5. Or lower standards for ship commanders. Still, it’s marginally better than a yiffing frat boy.

  6. Well they’re still working on that one. It’s lower priority than hair follicles and boners.
