-= Trip's Relationships =-

Is he the chick-magnet? Is he stuck with every Alien Babe Of the Week (ABOW)? Why do people think he and Archer are dating? What can I say, the man has chemistry with EVERYONE.  

How did * I * get involved in all this? When did * I * become a 'shipper? Well, in about Week One of Season One, when I read some of Jadis' magical fanfic, I guess. Part of the problem, as usual, is Trip's unparalled ability to get along with everyone he meets, even icy Vulcans (i.e., dinner in "Breaking the Ice"). So far, we have the following relationships, IN NO ORDER of any sort, I swear.

On-going Major Shipping

"Two Days and Two Nights" -- dorks on the make
