Re: Unpopular Trek Opinions — What Are Yours?
5. Trip is the worst character ever created for Star Trek. Even Luxwana (who I hate passionately and unconditionally) wasn't as annoying.
I find the character to be highly immature, and this "brilliant engineer" that is so often mentioned seems to stem more from the scriptwriters forcing him to be that way rather than getting a natural impression as you would with, say Scotty.
