Bridge. Trip strides on and orders May-Blond-On-Blond to set a course for Andoria. "Andoria?" Reed Britishes. Trip sits down in the captain's chair: "Maximum warp." Wait, is he leaving without his captain? Awesome. Trip's just so natural as the captain. He can take opinions and give orders without letting his ego and furrows get in the way of either. He's grown more than any other character, and no, I really don't consider being a CRACK WHORE "growth." I like him. There. I've said it. It's taken four years, but: I like Trip.
