Connor Trinneer (Charles 'Trip' Tucker) recently joined in the chorus of the many other Enterprise actors who have called the final season's mirror universe act their favorite experience of the year.
"The mirror universe episodes were pretty cool," Trinneer told the British Dreamwatch Magazine (via the Sci-Fi Pulse). "You got to see his evil doppelganger, and that was fun to play. Those shows were sort of a side note to our experience on Enterprise, especially because there was quite a bit going on with the relationship between Trip and T'Pol in the last few episodes that I think is good stuff."
Looking back to earlier seasons, Trinneer named "Shuttlepod One," "Cogenitor" and "Similitude" as three of his favorite episodes. And in general, he felt that Enterprise treated his character well, and said he enjoyed the opportunity to play Trip. "He experienced the highs and lows of what it's like to be out in the field exploring and experiencing things."
The actor briefly spoke about what made Trip such an appealing character. "At the core I think he seems to be the person on the show who was given the responsibility of being the everyman character," he said. "So we saw through him what it would be like for an everyman to go out into space, be one this crew and go on this journey. They really gave me a lot to play with over the course of the four years."
