You may also be looking for the city Marseille.


Marseilles was a hologram, based on Tom Paris, that was a character in a holonovel written by The Doctor entitled Photons Be Free.

He was the helmsman of the USS Vortex. In "Chapter 1: A Healer is Born", Marseilles was brought to sickbay by Commander Katanay with a slight concussion, having been injured during the incident with the Caretaker. When the person playing the EMH refused to treat Marseilles first, wanting to see to a more seriously injured patient, Captain Jenkins would kill the other patient so that Marseilles would be treated. He was a womanizer, although he was married to Torrey, a character based on Paris' wife B'Elanna Torres. The Doctor described the character as being self-indulgent and immature when compared to the real Paris. (VOY: "Author, Author")

The character name "Marseilles" was derived from the city of Marseille, France. Tom Paris spent much time playing pool in a tavern called Sandrine's in Marseille. (Paris later re-created Sandrine's on Voyager's holodeck in 2371, stardate 48546.2.) (VOY: "The Cloud")

Like Paris, Marseilles was portrayed by Robert Duncan McNeill.
The name appears to have been chosen as a joke, since Marseilles is a city in France, as is Paris.
