The Last Sunset

Hancock was 32 in 1974, so presumably Morrow is the same age in 1999, born 1967. His father was killed when Voyager 2's drive cut in too soon (Voyager's Return). Main Mission Controller and second in command. 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 also an experienced Eagle pilot (Collision Course, Guardian Of Piri, 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. Other interests include guitar (Black Sun, Guardian Of Piri). Passionate at times (Missing Link, Voyager's Return, 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).

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

The original character name (in Bellak's script The Void Ahead) was Vorkonen. In a later version of the script he was called "Bob" Morrow.

"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)
