Nice catch Whyaduck, I actually have been to Panama City and I never even thought about it.

Living in Florida, that one jumped right out at me, especially as Trip's made it a point to mention where he grew up. Not to mention the accent (people native to that part of Florida do have southern accents).

Was reading the novelization The Expanse. It has Trip's home by the Everglades (I guess 'cause they'd mentioned diving there). Well, it was written while the show was still running, and there are about a million facts eventually inconsistent with the show...

So...THAT's maybe why the women get away with grabbing & kissing Trip...so to speak.

Forget grabbing. I like to smooth my way into kissing a lady if she is interested. they melt every ?time... :sly grin:[/quote]
Kissing without grabbing? :D That IS a pretty smooth move...

The trick is to tell them you are telling them a secret, they come in close, then get close to ear. One moment later... soft kiss.

I can see that working. Or...a friendly kiss on the forehead, but hang around a little...to see if she wants something else!

I KNOW it must be hard to be the guy with social norms the way they are. Girls can manipulate situations, but guys still get most of the actual risk. :)

That is a total contradiction to what was presented in the show. In Fusion, Trip says:

TUCKER: I remember the first dance I ever went to. Bayshore Elementary Panama City, Florida.

The southern accent is consistent with living in the panhandle,  but the Everglades (including Everglades Nat'l Park) are in the southern part of the state.

Trip's family, his home town and just about everything in his life before he boarded the NX-01 is one huge inconsistency. They were just making it up as the went along. In "Fusion" he has a nephew and a brother, then in the "Expanse" he only has only one sister who died. In "Home" trip sounded like he was an orphan, then all of a sudden in "The Augments" he has parents in Mississippi. (Duck: "The Augments" also mentions Panama City). They were making Trip's past up as they went along. Zero planing. Then to top it off, when we get to the books, we find out his brother is gay.

I was totally expecting the gay brother to be in Ireland . . .since "Breaking the Ice" implies (or even states, I can't remember) that it's Trip's nephew's class they are answering questions from. . .but they are in Ireland. But Mangels made Trip's brother-in-law hispanic, not Irish.

But Trip's accent is definitely Northern Florida - Panama City. . . even though it didn't look like the Xindi weapon hit there.

The thing about his parents moving - I thought they moved there from Panama City before the attack, but I just went and looked at the dialog and it makes it sound like they recently moved there (which would make it post Xindi weapon).

TUCKER: They're fine. They moved into a new house in Mississippi. It's not like the old place in Panama City, but it's pretty nice.

I'm surprised someone like Mike Sussman didn't catch the inconsistencies.

Well Trips accent was defiantly northern Florida in the panhandle.  I have been to Florida numerous times for vacation and business, for the most part from my experience the majority of people in Southern Florida do not have much of accent.  That is likely due to that is where most of the Northerns moved.

Plus I remember in one of the books it was described as a Florida/Alabama accent, which obviously means the panhandle.

As for his parents, them not being home during the attack is not that big of stretch, they could have been at work, vacation or driven to the store during the attack.  But whyaduck is right they totally screwed up the location of the attack and the location of his home.

As for Trips brother, him being gay was a Mangles invention, was not a big deal, but was never mentioned or even hinted in the show.  Like I said not a big deal, although I do think the gay Klingon Admiral had a jumping the shark element.

Dbear is right. In South Florida, people have either a generic accent or one from where ever they moved (NYC, Boston, Central American, Cuba, etc.). Very few southern accents. My daughter went to college in Tallahassee and it being about 10 miles from Georgia, many people there have southern accents.

It's funny, but when people down here speak about North Florida when compared to South Florida (and it's North or South Florida, not northern or southern Florida :) ), they say, "Up in the south." :laugh:

And to further confuse things, the University of South Florida is in west Central Florida (Tampa).

I did not know about the South versus Southern and the North versus Northern, learned something new today.  Not bad considering I am sitting my sweats drinking coffee. :laugh:
