PRAISE FOR CT
Berman cited Connor Trinneer ("Trip Tucker") as a prime example of those who will most likely be passed over. "If Connor were on any other freshman TV series right now, he would be the buzz of the trades in terms of getting a nomination," said Berman. "But he's on Star Trek, and we're forever hopeful, but the history doesn't show he has much chance." Source: Startrek.com
Rick Berman says he and writing partner Brannon Braga are always trying to find good material for all their new prequel-era characters, but if one had to be singled out, it'd be Connor Trinneer's: "I would say that the actor that I just can't get enough of and whom we are constantly looking for stories to develop and focus around is Connor Trinneer. I think Connor is just a remarkable actor. I think that if there is anybody who hasn't been given enough focus, in terms of stories centered around their character, it is probably Trip."

David A. Goodman (Consulting Producer) said on the TrekBBS recently: "At the center of the episode [Precious Cargo] is Connor's performance, which, as always, is spectacular."
