    I finally saw my first episode with actual Trip/T'Pol action in it. To celebrate, I took a screen shot.

    I really don't understand why there wasn't MORE action. By the time I watched ENT I was under the impression that it had been a full blown relationship/affair. I was very disappointed.

    I liked the courtship too, it was the abrupt ending of the whole thing after consummation that upset me.

    GOOD!

    And let's hope it's not like Chakotay and Janeway's romance which had ONE NIGHT of consummation and then they killed her. Is it too much to hope for that Treklit would manage to do a romance well without these ridiculous "OMG separation" scenarios?

    Also I'm sick of Trip being a spy. Enough already.

    Thanks for the update. I thought what little TnT story Martin gave us in the last book as totally awesome!

    *le sigh* I don't read the novels. I have trouble with the Trip-is-a-spy scenario (though I'm grateful they were able to salvage him from the Abomination). So I happily read fanfiction instead.

    Frankly I never found the spy thing believable. Sure he's a very clever guy as well as having an engineers brain but he's also a "what you see is what you get" type IMO. That's a big part of his charm, he's genuine and wears his heart on his sleeve. Impersonating an entirely different race for months (years?) at a time? It just doesn't fit. Still, I read the ENT books anyway as there simply was not enough ENT on tv and they have been pretty good as far as Treklit goes. I enjoy having more ENT.

    But gah, I hope they drop the spy stuff soon!!

    I really didn't think of him as a "spy" at first. More, like, saboteur. In the beginning, he was accompanied by a *real* spy after all, and he was actually perfect for the mission because an operative without his kind of expertise wouldn't be of much use around experimental warp equipment.

    But I do agree that the whole "under cover" thing wasn't a good idea. There were better ways of bringing him back, surely.

    The way I would have done it - events in TATV still occur in 2061, but the relaunch only gets there at the end, while all the books take place between Terra Prime and it.

    In the end, the final book would have retcond TATV by showing the REAL version of events, in which Trip DOES in fact die, but heroically and meaningfully. Also, the T&T romance continues, but the two are VERY discreet, both being senior officers and all.

    Oh, and Trip dies in T'Pol's arms, a MAJOR tear jerking moment, and y'all baww like babies, but you keep re-reading it over and over because it's just THAT beautiful! :D

    Meh. I suppose I would be okay if his death had been far more meaningful and less contrived, but truly, in my head canon, he lives to be an old man. :razz:

    Hey, mod-lady (aka ko-kai)... Might we be allowed to post drabbles in this thread, related to this pairing? They're only 100 words long.

    Please? :D

    Why do I feel as if that avatar is a velvet arm-twister? ;)

    Hmm...the Voyager forum has a thread for show-related creations...fanfiction, music videos, photoshop goodies and such. And since this thread could use a little traffic, I think it might be fun to see what y'all have been doing to express your Trip & T'Pol luuurve. :adore: Let's give it a whirl and see how it goes.

    Let's start with posting links to drabbles and fanfiction if they've already been posted somewhere, okay? You can embed YouTube vids here for easy viewing, and any of you with wallpapers or avatars or other artwork, post away! We love pictures. :biggrin: Images that are humongous can be posted as thumbnails or links.

    And if you wish to recommend a favorite T/T story or video or wallpaper created by someone else, let us know and post a link, so we can enjoy them too.

    Remember that this is a family board, and some folks surf here while in the workplace, so if your creation is spicier than PG-13, post a warning.

    And now a fanfiction recommendation! Here's one of the all-time best Trip/T'Pol stories out there:

    Miscommunication, by Ragua

    Ragua's summary: Trip wants to learn Vulcan, so he goes to Hoshi for help. He makes her swear to keep their lessons secret, because he wants to surprise T'Pol. T'Pol misinterprets Trip's interest in Hoshi, as does Malcolm, and a great deal of misunderstanding ensues. When sent on an away mission, the three senior officers must resolve their problems.

    Warning: Make time, because you won't be able to put it down once you start it. :) It's engaging and funny and beautifully written. A masterpiece.
