You have to watch the series to understand what im talking about. Its like he embodied all the best of scotty but was more friendly and slightly rougher round the edges. The romance story arc was dumb and his death was the most stupid thing to include and the end of the series, other than that a great performance.
I prefer to think that Trip did not die and it was just a ruse.
