Thomas Eugene "Tom" Paris, played by Robert Duncan McNeill, is a character in the American science fiction television series Star Trek: Voyager. In that show, which aired on UPN between 1995 and 2001, Paris serves as the chief helmsman and an auxiliary medic aboard the Federation of Planets starship USS Voyager, which must make its way home after being stranded on the opposite of the Galaxy as Earth with a motley collection of Starfleet and aliens as crew; the character's middle name, "Eugene", is a tribute to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. Tom Paris is the son of Starfleet Admiral Owen Paris and a scion of a family with a long history of illustrious service in Starfleet. Following in his family's tradition, Paris attended Starfleet Academy sometime in the 2350s and majored in astrophysics. A gifted pilot, Paris earned an assignment to the Academy's honor squadron, his relationship with his father was not a good one. Admiral Paris disapproved of his son's tendency to get into fights and his resulting punishments.
Soon after his graduation from Starfleet Academy, Tom crashed a shuttle he was piloting near Caldik Prime, killing three other Starfleet officers. Afraid he would lose his commission, Paris falsified records that would reveal the cause of the accident as pilot error, his efforts to cover up the error succeeded, yet still, overwhelmed by guilt and regret, he confessed. He was court was dishonorably discharged from Starfleet; this caused a major rift between his father. Following his discharge, Paris left San Francisco for Marseille, where he started spending his time drinking and playing pool in Sandrine's, a waterfront bar. There, Chakotay, a former Starfleet officer now serving with the Maquis, recruited him to serve as a mercenary pilot for the Maquis Rebellion against the Federation; this adventure went no better than his earlier stint in Starfleet as Paris was captured by Starfleet while piloting his first mission for the Maquis. Tried and convicted of treason for aiding the Maquis Rebellion, Paris was sentenced to serve time in the Federation penal settlement near Auckland, New Zealand.
Kathryn Janeway, captain of the starship USS Voyager, obtained Paris' temporary release from the penal colony. Janeway, charged with finding and capturing the Maquis ship commanded by Chakotay, offered Paris early parole in exchange for serving as her informant on Chakotay and the Maquis. Janeway and the crew of Voyager, while searching for the Maquis ship, were thrown into the Delta Quadrant by a massive energy wave created by an alien known as the Caretaker. Once there, they located the Maquis ship docked at the Caretaker's array; the survivors of the incident became stranded about 70,000 light-years away from Earth. The Maquis ship was destroyed and its crew joined the Federation crew on Voyager; the marooning of Voyager in the Delta Quadrant provided Paris with a new beginning. Janeway gave Paris a field commission as a Starfleet lieutenant and made him chief helmsman of Voyager, he had a rough start, however, as Maquis alike viewed Paris with suspicion. Paris worked hard to earn his crewmates' respect.
During this time, he became best friends with Ensign Harry Kim, a young officer on his first mission who defied his crewmates to befriend Paris. Paris was accepted by the crew and became one of Janeway's valued officers. Paris' duties were not limited to piloting Voyager. On Janeway's orders, he trained as a field medic and assisted The Doctor until the Doctor recruited Kes as his primary assistant. Following Kes's departure Paris once again served regular duty shifts in sickbay. In the episode "Thirty Days", while disobeying direct orders in order to do what he felt was morally right, he was reduced to ensign and thrown in Voyager's brig for a period of 30 days. About a year after working diligently at his duties, he regained his former rank; this occurred just before the events of "Unimatrix Zero", during which it is revealed that he is fourth in the chain of command. While serving on Voyager, Paris nurtured a long-hidden talent for holo-programming, devising several programs for the entertainment of his fellow crewmembers.
His most popular programs included a re-creation of Sandrine's bar, an Irish town called Fair Haven, a 1930s-era sci-fi movie serial entitled Captain Proton. Paris married Lieutenant B'Elanna Torres, Voyager's half-Klingon/half-Human chief engineer, in 2377. Torres gave birth to their daughter Miral Paris during the events that led to Voyager's return to the Alpha Quadrant and Earth. Tom Paris at times displayed resentment toward Owen Paris; this situation improved over the course of the journey, due to Janeway's willingness to offer him redemption, to his relationship with B'Elanna Torres. Paris has a deep interest in 20th-century Earth pop-culture utilizing such in his holo-programs; the knowledge helped the crew during time-travel incidents. He became good friends with Harry Kim from the start and at times displayed protectiveness in the face of Harry's customary naiveté. In the first episode he rescues the ensign from a manipulative Ferengi; the only member of the crew with whom Paris had a somewhat difficult relationship was Chakotay because of their history in the Maquis.
However, throughout Voyager's seven-year journey home and Chakotay reconciled and became good friends. Tom was a full lieutenant at the beginning of the series a lieutenant junior grade in the first-season episode "Faces"; the writers planned to use the character of Nicolas Locarno as a template for Tom Paris, played by McNe
Quantum Leap is an American science-fiction television series that aired on NBC for five seasons, from March 1989 through May 1993. Created by Donald P. Bellisario, it starred Scott Bakula as Dr. Sam Beckett, a physicist who leaps through spacetime during an experiment in time travel, by temporarily taking the place of other people to correct historical mistakes. Dean Stockwell co-stars as Admiral Al Calavicci, Sam's womanizing, cigar-smoking companion and best friend, who appears to him as a hologram; the series features a mix of humor, romance, social commentary, science fiction. The show was ranked #19 on TV Guide's "Top Cult Shows Ever". Quantum Leap follows the narrative of Dr. Sam Beckett, a physicist who has become stuck in the past as a result of a time-travel experiment gone wrong, his attempts to return to his present, the late 20th century, by altering events in the past for the better, with the aid of a hologram of his friend Admiral Al Calavicci, monitoring him from Sam's present.
In the series premiere, Sam has theorized the ability to travel in one's own lifetime and is the lead scientist of the government-funded Project Quantum Leap, operating from a secret laboratory in New Mexico. When Al learns that funding for the project is in danger of being pulled because no demonstrable results have come from the project, Sam takes it upon himself to step into the Quantum Leap accelerator to prove that the project works; when Sam gains consciousness, he finds himself suffering from partial amnesia, is more surprised to find that his appearance to others, including what he sees in the mirror, is not his own face. He finds that Al has come to his aid as a hologram that only Sam can see and hear, as it is tuned to his brainwaves. Al, working with the project's artificial intelligence Ziggy, determines that Sam must alter an event in the current period he is in so as to re-engage the Quantum Leap process and return home. Al helps Sam overcome some facets of his "Swiss-cheese memory" and provides information on history as it happened.
He updates Sam on future events and relates possible outcome-probabilities using a handheld communication device in contact with Ziggy. The device is temperamental and must be struck a few times as it emits electronic beeping and whirring sounds before the information is revealed. With Al and Ziggy's help, Sam is able to change history, leaps out, only to find himself in the life of someone else in a different period of time. Episodes in the series subsequently follow Sam's reaction to each leap, working with Al and Ziggy to figure out his new identity and who he needs to help to "set right what once went wrong" and trigger the next leap. An episode ends as a cliffhanger, showing the first few moments of Sam's next leap, repeated in the following episode's cold open. Though Sam's leaping is believed by Al and the others on the Quantum Leap team to be random, the characters come to believe in seasons that someone or something is controlling Sam's leaping, this is a central focus of the show's finale episode, "Mirror Image".
When Sam leaps, his body is physically present in the past, although he appears to others as the person into whom he leaped. In one case, after leaping into a Vietnam veteran who has lost both legs, Sam is still able to walk but appears to others as if he is floating. Sam's body and mind may become jumbled with those into. In one situation, he leaps into a woman near the end of her pregnancy and feels her birth pains, while in another episode, he leaps into Lee Harvey Oswald and feels an intense pressure to assassinate John F. Kennedy, despite knowing that it is the wrong thing to do; the persons into whom Sam has leaped are brought into the future, where they appear as Sam to the others. In most of Sam's leaps, the changes he makes are small on the grand scale, such as saving the life of a person who might otherwise have died, or helping making someone's life better. Selected episodes, demonstrate more dramatic effects of his time travels. In one episode, Sam's actions lead to Al's death prior to the project, Sam finds himself aided by a new hologram, "Edward St. John V", must work to prevent Al's death.
In another episode, when again the project's funding is threatened, Sam helps a young woman pass the bar. In the episode involving Lee Harvey Oswald, while Sam and Al do not prevent the assassination of Kennedy, Sam's actions prevent Oswald from making a second shot that killed Jacqueline Kennedy in the original fictional history; because of the time-travel aspect, many episodes allude to famous people or incidents indirectly, such as Sam suggesting to young Donald Trump that New York real estate will be valuable in the future, suggesting the lyrics of "Peggy Sue" to a teenaged Buddy Holly, showing young Michael Jackson his signature moonwalk dance for the first time, giving Dr. Henry Heimlich the idea for his namesake maneuver by saving him from choking, setting in place actions that lead to the discovery of the Watergate scandal. Two notable episodes place Sam

A ritual is a sequence of activities involving gestures and objects, performed in a sequestered place, performed according to set sequence. Rituals may be prescribed by the traditions including a religious community. Rituals are characterized but not defined by formalism, invariance, rule-governance, sacral symbolism, performance. Rituals are a feature of all known human societies, they include not only the worship rites and sacraments of organized religions and cults, but rites of passage and purification rites, oaths of allegiance, dedication ceremonies, coming of age ceremony or rites and presidential inaugurations and funerals, school "rush" traditions and graduations, club meetings, sporting events, Halloween parties, veterans parades, Christmas shopping and more. Many activities that are ostensibly performed for concrete purposes, such as jury trials, execution of criminals, scientific symposia, are loaded with purely symbolic actions prescribed by regulations or tradition, thus ritualistic in nature.
Common actions like hand-shaking and saying "hello" may be termed rituals. The field of ritual studies has seen a number of conflicting definitions of the term. One given by Kyriakidis is that a ritual is an outsider's or "etic" category for a set activity that, to the outsider, seems irrational, non-contiguous, or illogical; the term can be used by the insider or "emic" performer as an acknowledgement that this activity can be seen as such by the uninitiated onlooker. In psychology, the term ritual is sometimes used in a technical sense for a repetitive behavior systematically used by a person to neutralize or prevent anxiety; the English word ritual derives from the Latin ritualis, "that which pertains to rite". In Roman juridical and religious usage, ritus was the proven way of doing something, or "correct performance, custom"; the original concept of ritus may be related to the Sanskrit ṛtá" in Vedic religion, "the lawful and regular order of the normal, therefore proper and true structure of cosmic, worldly and ritual events".
The word "ritual" is first recorded in English in 1570, came into use in the 1600s to mean "the prescribed order of performing religious services" or more a book of these prescriptions. There are hardly any limits to the kind of actions; the rites of past and present societies have involved special gestures and words, recitation of fixed texts, performance of special music, songs or dances, manipulation of certain objects, use of special dresses, consumption of special food, drink, or drugs, much more. Catherine Bell argues that rituals can be characterized by formalism, invariance, rule-governance, sacral symbolism and performance. Ritual utilizes a limited and rigidly organized set of expressions which anthropologists call a "restricted code". Maurice Bloch argues that ritual obliges participants to use this formal oratorical style, limited in intonation, vocabulary and fixity of order. In adopting this style, ritual leaders' speech becomes more style than content; because this formal speech limits what can be said, it induces "acceptance, compliance, or at least forbearance with regard to any overt challenge".
Bloch argues that this form of ritual communication makes rebellion impossible and revolution the only feasible alternative. Ritual tends to support traditional forms of social hierarchy and authority, maintains the assumptions on which the authority is based from challenge. Rituals appeal to tradition and are continued to repeat historical precedent, religious rite, mores or ceremony accurately. Traditionalism varies from formalism in that the ritual may not be formal yet still makes an appeal to the historical trend. An example is the American Thanksgiving dinner, which may not be formal, yet is ostensibly based on an event from the early Puritan settlement of America. Historians Eric Hobsbawm and Terrence Ranger have argued that many of these are invented traditions, such as the rituals of the British monarchy, which invoke "thousand year-old tradition" but whose actual form originate in the late nineteenth century, to some extent reviving earlier forms, in this case medieval, discontinued in the meantime.
Thus, the appeal to history is important rather than accurate historical transmission. Catherine Bell states that ritual is invariant, implying careful choreography; this is less an appeal to traditionalism than a striving for timeless repetition. The key to invariance is bodily discipline, as in monastic prayer and meditation meant to mold dispositions and moods; this bodily discipline is performed in unison, by groups. Rituals tend to be governed by a feature somewhat like formalism. Rules impose norms on the chaos of behavior, either defining the outer limits of what is acceptable or choreographing each move. Individuals are held to communally approved customs that evoke a legitimate communal authority that can constrain the possible outcomes. War in most societies has been bound by ritualized constraints that limit the legitimate means by which war was waged. Activities appealing to supernatural beings are considered rituals, although the appeal may be quite indirect, expressing only a generalized belief in the existence of the sacred demanding a human response.
National flags, for example, may be considered more than signs representing a country. The flag stands for larger symbols such as freedom, free enterprise or national superiority. Anthropologi
Hide and Q
"Hide and Q" is the tenth episode of the first season of the American science fiction television series Star Trek: The Next Generation, aired on November 23, 1987, in broadcast syndication. The story was written by Maurice Hurley but went under numerous re-writes by the show's creator Gene Roddenberry; the episode was directed by Cliff Bole, saw the return of John de Lancie as Q. Set in the 24th century, the series follows the adventures of the crew of the Starfleet starship Enterprise. In this episode, Q returns to the USS Enterprise following his original encounter with the crew in "Encounter at Farpoint". Q transports the bridge crew to a landscape where they are attacked by humanoids and grants Commander Riker the powers of a member of the Q Continuum, which he is forced to use to resurrect both Worf and Wesley. Riker promises never to use the powers again, but after a rescue mission he breaks down and grants each of the bridge crew a wish, which they refuse, with Riker subsequently rejecting his new powers.
Q is recalled to the Continuum in failure. Writer Maurice Hurley requested that he be credited under the pseudonym C. J. Holland in protest against Roddenberry's re-writes, which he regretted; the problems with the scripting of the episode changed the way the staff handled subsequent script developments for the series. Bole subsequently praised the abilities of de Lancie during the course of filming the episode. Reviewers thought that while the episode was predictable, the relationship between Q and Picard was praised, "Hide and Q" received average overall scores; the USS Enterprise is en route to Quadra Sigma to aid colonists caught in a methane explosion when Q re-appears and demands that they abandon their mission to compete in a game. He teleports Commander Riker and the bridge crew, with the exception of Captain Picard, to a barren landscape and appears in front of them whilst wearing a uniform of a Napoleonic era French marshall, he explains the rule of the game is to stay alive, after Yar refuses to compete, he transports her back to the bridge of the Enterprise in a "penalty box".
Q returns to the bridge too. He explains that the Q Continuum is testing Commander Riker to see if he is worthy of being granted their powers. Picard, having the utmost faith in his First Officer, takes the bet, as winning it would mean Q would get off their backs. Meanwhile and his team are attacked by what Lt. Worf reports as "vicious animal things" wearing French soldier's uniforms from the Napoleonic era and armed with muskets that fire energy bolts instead of the classic projectiles. Q returns to Riker and tells him that he has granted him the powers of the Continuum, Riker promptly returns his crew mates to the ship but remains behind with Q to reject the powers. Q brings the crew back with Picard; the crew are attacked once more by the aliens, both Worf and Wesley Crusher are killed. Riker uses the powers of the Q to bring both Worf and Wesley back to life. Riker makes a promise to Picard never to use the powers again and the ship arrives at Quadra Sigma. A rescue team discovers a young girl who has died.
Riker is tempted to save her. Tension between Picard and his first officer grows as Riker now seems to be embracing his powers, his behavior toward the crew begins to change. At Q's suggestion, with Picard's blessing, Riker uses his powers to give his friends what he believes they want, turning Wesley into an adult, giving La Forge his sight, creating a Klingon female companion for Worf. All the recipients reject their gifts, with Data anticipating and declining Riker's attempt to make him human. Picard declares that Q has failed, when Q attempts to go back on his word, he is forcibly recalled to the Continuum. Picard is pleased to see Q gone, praises Riker for confirming his trust in his "Number One". Writer Maurice Hurley requested that his contributions to this episode appear under the name of C. J. Holland because of the number of extensive re-writes by the show's creator Gene Roddenberry. Hurley described the situation as a "misunderstanding" as the situation was subsequently resolved and proved to be a turning point for the series in how scripts were produced.
Subsequently Roddenberry spent less time conducting detailed re-writes. Some of the elements of Hurley's original story expanded on the back story of Q's species, explaining that there were only three Qs but another hundred thousand residents on their planet who required relocation as the planet was dying; these elements didn't subsequently make it into any future episodes. The episode marked the return of John De Lancie as Q. Cliff Bole was returning as a director for the series, knowing that de Lancie would appear as Q, Bole watched "Encounter at Farpoint" in order to maintain Q's tone, he found after shooting began that his research wasn't required as de Lancie slotted back into his previous role naturally. Bole described the episode as "a lot of fun" and de Lancie as "a joy and a creative guy to work with". De Lancie would next return in the second season episode "Q Who". Meanwhile, the removal of the character of Deanna Troi from this episode alongside three other episodes made actress Marina Sirtis believe at the time that she was about to be cut from the show.
Elaine Nalee guest starred as a female survivor, while William A. Wallace appeared as the adult Wesley Crusher; the theme of the episode, where a h

Data (Star Trek)
Data is a character in the fictional Star Trek franchise. He appears in the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation and the feature films Star Trek Generations, Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Insurrection, Star Trek: Nemesis. Data is portrayed by actor Brent Spiner. Data was found by Starfleet in 2338 as the sole survivor on Omicron Theta in the rubble of a colony left after an attack from the Crystalline Entity, he was a synthetic life form with artificial intelligence and designed and built by Doctor Noonien Soong in his own likeness. Data is a self-aware, sapient and anatomically functional android who serves as the second officer and chief operations officer aboard the Federation starship USS Enterprise-D and the USS Enterprise-E, his positronic brain allows him impressive computational capabilities. He experienced ongoing difficulties during the early years of his life with understanding various aspects of human behavior and was unable to feel emotion or understand certain human idiosyncrasies, inspiring him to strive for his own humanity.
This goal led to the addition of an "emotion chip" created by Soong, to Data's positronic net. Although Data's endeavor to increase his humanity and desire for human emotional experience is a significant plot point throughout the series, he shows a nuanced sense of wisdom and curiosity, garnering respect from his peers and colleagues. Data is in many ways a successor to the original Star Trek's Spock, in that the character offers an "outsider's" perspective on humanity. Gene Roddenberry told Brent Spiner that over the course of the series, Data was to become "more and more like a human until the end of the show, when he would be close, but still not quite there; that was the idea and that's the way that the writers took it." Spiner felt that Data exhibited the Chaplinesque characteristics of a tragic clown. To get into his role as Data, Spiner used the character of Robby the Robot from the film Forbidden Planet as a role model. Commenting on Data's perpetual albino-like appearance, he said: "I spent more hours of the day in make-up than out of make-up", so much so that he called it a way of method acting.
Spiner portrayed Data's manipulative and malignant brother Lore, Data's creator, Dr. Noonien Soong. Additionally, he portrayed another Soong-type android, B-4, in the film Star Trek: Nemesis, one of Soong's ancestors in three episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise. Spiner said his favorite Data scene takes place in "Descent", when Data plays poker on the holodeck with a re-creation of the famous physicist Stephen Hawking, played by Hawking himself. Spiner reprised his role of Data in the Star Trek: Enterprise series finale "These Are the Voyages..." in an off-screen speaking part. Spiner felt that he had visibly aged out of the role and that Data was best presented as a youthful figure. Dialog in "Datalore" establishes some of Data's backstory, it is stated that he was deactivated in 2336 on Omicron Theta before an attack by the Crystalline Entity, a spaceborne creature which converts life forms to energy for sustenance. He reactivated by Starfleet personnel two years later. Data went to Starfleet Academy from 2341–45 and served in Starfleet aboard the USS Trieste.
He was assigned to the Enterprise under Captain Jean-Luc Picard in 2364. In "Datalore", Data discovers his amoral brother and learns that he was created after Lore. Lore fails in an attempt to betray the Enterprise to the Crystalline Entity, Wesley Crusher beams Data's brother into space at the episode's conclusion. In "Brothers", Data reunites with Dr. Soong. There he meets again with Lore. Lore fatally wounds Soong. Lore returns in the two-part episode "Descent", using the emotion chip to control Data and make him help with Lore's attempt to make the Borg artificial lifeforms. Data deactivates Lore, recovers, but does not install the damaged emotion chip. In "The Measure of a Man", a Starfleet judge rules; the episode establishes that Data has a storage capacity of 800 quadrillion bits and a total linear computational speed of 60 trillion operations per second. Data's family is expanded in "The Offspring", which introduces Lal, a robot based on Data's neural interface and whom Data refers to as his daughter.
Lal “dies” shortly after activation. His mother Julianna appears in the episode "Inheritance" and reunites with Data, though the crew discovers she was an android duplicate built by Soong after the real Julianna's death, programmed to die after a long life, to believe she is the true Julianna, unaware of the fact she is an android. Faced with the decision, Data chooses not to disclose this to her and allow her the chance to continue on with her normal life. In "All Good Things...", the two-hour concluding episode of The Next Generation, Captain Picard travels between three different time periods. The Picard of 25 years into the future goes with La Forge to seek advice from Professor Data, a luminary physicist who holds the Lucasian Chair at Cambridge University. In "The Child" Data clarifies to the newly arrived ship's chief medical officer, Dr. Katherine Pulaski, that the correct pronunciation of his name is Day'ta, not Dah'ta. Although several androids and artificial intelligences were seen in the original
