Starfleet career Edit
Sometime in her lifetime, Paris joined Starfleet and eventually obtained the rank of Commodore and was given command of Starbase Yorktown, the newest and most advanced starbase the Federation had built to date.
Background information Edit
Commodore Paris was played by actress Shohreh Aghdashloo.
Despite being verbally identified as having the rank of Commodore, her uniform shows the rank stripes of an Admiral.
This character was added to Star Trek Beyond late in its development, with Aghdashloo's scenes being filmed in reshoots. She was first announced to be in Star Trek Beyond on 11 March 2016 (for comparison, the film's release date was 22 July 2016).
However, the character was initially referred to as "the High Command of the Federation" in news reports.
