Quinn took pride in his duties, such as being a mentor to several young Starfleet officers, including Jason Fredricks.
Quinn was a man of somewhat advanced age, sporting combed back white hair with a slightly receding hairline.
On 18 May 2378 (54973.4), Commander Quinn, assigned to Earth Spacedock, welcomed the USS Voyager home after its return from being stranded in the Delta Quadrant. He informed Captain Kathryn Janeway that a docking bay was ready for their arrival and that the dockmaster would guide them in.
By 28 January 2409 (83165.2), Quinn had already achieved the rank of fleet admiral and was part of Starfleet Command. He hailed the USS Leviathan to have them join the rest of the fleet being sent to repel a Borg invasion of the Vega system. He was saddened to hear of the loss of Captain Masc Taggart, but he reminded the Leviathan's crew that the time to mourn would come later. Following the battle with the Borg, Quinn ordered the Leviathan to return to Earth Spacedock.
Quinn had Jason Fredricks report to his office on ESD where he offered him a promotion and permanent command of the Leviathan, as Jason had only temporarily taken command. Jason was initially concerned that Vo'Lok, a Vulcan captain whos orders he had disobeyed at the Vega colony, would have said something negative about him in his after-mission report, but Quinn revealed that Vo'Lok actually spoke highly of him.
Later, Quinn attended a memorial service for Taggart and the other fallen officers on the Leviathan and at Vega IX. Quinn commented to Vo'Lok that Jason would have made Taggart quite proud with his performance.
At the memorial ceremony for Taggart and the other fallen officers following the battle at Vega IX, Quinn and Vo'Lok discussed Taggart's choosing of Jason Fredricks over a list of more experienced officers. Quinn referred to Taggart by his first name, indicating the two of them knew each other fairly well.
Quinn considered Jason to be like a son to him, to which Jason reciprocated the father/son relationship.
