i felt like trip was george w bush in space and the only flaw in the first seaon. maybe im the only one but i cringed every time he yelled out capt'n this or cap'n that, or got overly emtional and got overly high pitches at what ever issue was going on. I started to get more annoyed by him than i did of worf yelling out the stupidest option available (by the way worf was from a group of aliens that were overly emotional so it kinda of made sense.  Am i the only one that was happy when they killed trip as i felt his voice was annoying and that he was highly over rated by the producers. i watch the behind the scences footage and was left thinking this guy doesnt love, star trek it was just a jack pot pay check for him.hell even scott backulla didnt want the job ....sorry i will stop now

He's probably my favorite Enterprise character which isn't saying much. Although they're still great shows, ENT/VOY didn't have nearly as many good characters as TOS/TNG/DS9.

No, you are not. I usally fast-forward or focus on a different character whenever he's onscreen.


T'Pol gets similar treatment, but I don't despise her nearly as much as trip.


That the top three characters/actors were so awful really hampered the show. Which is too bad, since some of those episodes are really solid star trek, and the other four actors were good-to-great.

Trip was one of the characters I really liked considering this was my second least favourite star trek (Voyager is the worst IMO) the worst one was Reed he seemed to be pointless and annoyed me. Especially with the fake british accent I"m a brit and never heard anyone speak the way reed did

The only reason I think Voyager is slightly better than Enterprise is because it has 7 seasons instead of 4. That amounts to a lot more episodes obviously. By the way TOS is the worst one overall though in my opinion.

xmarklive Don't leave me hangin', damn it! Where do you come up with the line "hell even scott backulla didnt want the job"? If true, what cause did he have for taking the part in the 1st place? Surley, after Quantam Leap, Backulla could have had his pick of shows to star in.


Blalock & Nimoy were the best two actors in the Star Trek universe. Go Vulcans!

UninvitedGuest "TOS is the worst one overall though in my opinion." Some of the episodes were very poorly written, others were among the best written TV of any era. "City of the edge of forever," "All our yesterdays," (Kelly's & Nimoy's best work together), and "Devil in the dark," a very cleverly written episode, come to mind.

UnivitedGuest "Especially with the fake british accent I"m a brit and never heard anyone speak the way reed did"  Your comment reminded me of a story Dick Van Dyke told on himself. Some of the cast teased him no end about his british accent that he used in Mary Poppins. Guess we Yanks are not too good at that sort of thing.

i think tr getting the part after messing up the audition twice had to due with his george W likeability or his guys next door looks ... but i have to say he sucks and is the reason i sold my blu rays

Nope I cheered when he died! He was "The Cletus the Slack Jawed Yokel" of Star Trek! I thought Archer had a creepy  Dubya vibe to him, like what George W Bush thought he looked like when he was president even thought he was an empty suit!

>I would like to point out that some of the people who diss (is that how you spell it?) Trip think, like "Stickit," that the show "sucked ass."

Man, your butter knife sharp wit is devastating!


Listen,


I don't care if he was Gene's favorite charactor he was 2 dimensional and annoying! Just because a whole lot of people like something, does not make it good! Yes I have an opinion and I guess it differs from Braga's. You don't seem to want to question anything, that's fine, it's your choice. Personally I think people like yourself are why flaming piles of garbage like "Enterprise" where made and empty suits like Goerge W Bush where put in power but I won't deny you for being this way and that's my opinion, I have a right to my opninion just like you have the right to yours and you also have the right to be a mindless sheep who doesn't want to rock the boat! 


Good luck with that, I'll be over here with my opinion, asking questions and pointing out things that I find are wrong.

Some people claimed Kathryn Hepburn was 2 dimmmensional, some people do not understand acting. As for Trip, Simlitude was an excellent example of how good an actor he was. Everyone in ENT had the chance to shine. Park in Vanishing Point, comes to mind.

Although I've only seen Enterprise a few times here and there, I found the character of Trip to be well done.

ive seen conner aka trip post on twitter and i see why people like him, just like i see why george W is so well liked. its because he is the fun guy the guy you want to have a beer with, which is why the producers liked him and gave him chance after chance after fudgeing the audition time after after time. ( check the dvd behind the scenes )  Sorry but i bet conner gets payd with every convention and wouldnt show up other wise  . CAPt'n
