Have you ever tried pan-fried catfish? It’s pretty awesome, and another example of how Trip was a real person with real traits and characteristics. I met Connor Trinneer at a Star Trek convention in London back in 2012 and he was a genuinely nice guy. We had a really good chat and he was one of the most down-to-earth characters I have ever met.
Captain Archer: If I asked your parents what you like to eat, would they be able to tell me?
Commander Charles ‘Trip’ Tucker III: Are you kiddin’? My mom would give you her recipe for pan-fried catfish and wouldn’t let you go till you promised not to screw it up.
