Nick was smooth and smarmy, like a used-car salesman.

Tom was smooth, but NOT smarmy. And if he ever sold a used car, he'd at least make sure it worked right.
Exactly. Tom was boring.

(I know you were probably posting in favor of Tom over Nick, so I just want to clarify that I got it. )
I despised the character of Nick. I also despise real-world used-car salesmen. Plus I despise funeral home directors who behave like used-car salesmen.

For a more interesting take on Tom Paris, I recommend Alpha Flyer's post-Endgame Tom Paris stories on There's adventure, humor, character development, an ongoing storyline that got me hooked and waiting for the next installment...
