The Last Sunset

Main Mission Controller and second in command.

The original character in George Bellak's The Void Ahead script was named Vorkonen. No nationality is suggested, but the name is German or Dutch. His role was described as Koenig's "adjutant", an administrative assistant to a senior officer in the military. In a later draft he became "Main Mission Controller Bob Morrow", the surname of Scottish origin.

Hancock was 32 in 1974, so presumably Morrow is the same age in 1999, born 1967.

Morrow's father was killed when Voyager 2's drive cut in too soon (Voyager's Return). He is generally loyal to Koenig with two notable exceptions: Another Time, Another Place (when he gets to look like Moses) and The Last Sunset (where he acts like Moses!). He is passionate at times (Missing Link, Voyager's Return, The Last Sunset).

Paul is usually trapped at his desk, but infrequently he accompanies missions: Matter Of Life And Death, The Last Sunset, Mission Of The Darians.

Another Time, Another Place The Last Sunset

He is close to Sandra (Matter Of Life And Death, the end of Black Sun, married to her in Another Time, Another Place with two children, they kiss in The Last Sunset, The Full Circle).

Collision Course

Paul Morrow is an experienced Eagle pilot (Collision Course, Guardian Of Piri, The Last Sunset).

Black Sun Guardian Of Piri

His hobbies include guitar (Black Sun, Guardian Of Piri).

Featured in 23 Year 1 episodes. He is not in The Infernal Machine (Prentis Hancock was off to have an operation; in the episode Koenig explains "...he's not too bad. A couple of fractured ribs, broken ankle. Doctor Russell says he'll be out for a few days. But he'll be okay. Nothing serious."). There is no explanation for his disappearance from Year 2.

John Muir's The Forsaken describes him leaving Alpha with Tanya for the planet Pyxidea.

"Come on. Life here's not that abnormal. We eat, sleep, drink, even breathe air of a kind. Possibly there's something specific about this particular case." (Alpha Child)

"In there, cooped up, there are thoughts we just can't allow ourselves to think." (The Last Sunset)

"Two hundred people were killed because something went wrong. A whole community wiped out! My father was one of them. I know something went wrong." (Voyager's Return)
