Trip's death served NO purpose at all. Just terrible writing.
"Trip was always my favorite character on the show and I wanted to kill him." Braga said. "I can't give you a coherent response. We wanted to do something that had emotional impact and had consequences, which is something we were never allowed to do."
So you see, there WAS a purpose... It just failed at it. Miserably. In fact, Braga achieved just the opposite of what he intended.

Trip dies, and Malcolm, Hoshi and the other guy bitch about lousy seats?
