Star Trek, Where Are They Now: Connor Trinneer


Last time around we looked at Linda Park’s career after Enterprise, now lets take a look at what Connor Trinneer is up to post-Trek.

ICYMI: 5 reasons Trip Tucker was the best engineer

Continuing on my quest to look at the post-Trek careers of some of my favourite Star Trek actors, I wanted to take a look at what Chief Engineer Trip Tucker was up to these days. I previously wrote an article about how I think Trip was the best engineer from the Star Trek franchise, and the producers of Enterprise certainly rated him highly as an actor so he should have had little trouble finding new roles.

Over the years since Enterprise, Connor Trinneer has been involved with several television productions including Numb3rs, Stargate Atlantis, NCIS, Without a Trace, Family Guy, Criminal Minds, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, 24, The Mentalist, and Pretty Little Liars. The roles were usually short stays but they were always big productions.

More recently, Trinneer has enjoyed success in his latest movie, a western horror called A Good Day To Die. See the trailer below:

The plot seems interesting…

"“Baron Emerson uses his vast wealth to travel the world and hunt. He does not hunt animals, he hunts warriors. The Baron arrives at the American frontier and is looking for his next prey. An outlaw gunslinger named Chamberlin who is in jail and set to be hanged. The Baron arranges for Chamberlin to be freed so that he can hunt him like an animal in a bloody game of life and death in the Wild West.”"

Trinneer stars alongside Robert Koroluck, Nadia Lanfranconi, Jay Kown, and Leia Perez. The movie has already been released in Europe and enjoyed some success.

Connor is also active on the convention scene and regularly meets and greets his fans. I had the chance to meet him myself in 2012 Destination Star Trek London and he seemed like a really nice person.

Conner also featured in the hit series American Odyssey alongside Anna Friel. The show received good ratings and his performances were very entertaining. Trinneer is also set to star as George W. Bush in an upcoming movie called Mena, alongside none other than Tom Cruise; exciting stuff from our former Chief Engineer!
