No, I don't think that would work.
Nick Locarno is a smarmy jackass who tried to cover up his involvement in a crash that killed a teammate and encouraged the rest of Nova Squadron to do the same.
Tom Paris may have also gotten a teammate killed, but he came clean and admitted it. He could have got away scot free, but he confessed to what he did. Locarno would never have done that.
Tom Paris was redeemable; Locarno was not.
It's not redemption if you have nothing to redeem.
