Broken Bow

26 Sept 01

Trip actually gets off lightly in the pilot; he doesn't have to sit on the couch slack-jawed in astonishment while listening to that THEME SONG for the first time. The infamous Decon Gel Scene is primarily painful for the audience. Kidnapped by Suliban, although not roughed up, and then caught in Suliban crossfire. Shimmy- Shimmy- Shakin' Shuttlepod. Insulted repeatedly by T'Pol. Minor Klingon Fu.

Fight or Flight


03 Oct 01

No damage. That's because in the next two episodes he really earns his paycheck.

Strange New World


10 Oct 01

Trip's trippin'.



17 Oct 01

Impregnated against his will! And without his knowledge! And then he has to tell the Klingons!

Terra Nova


24 Oct 01

No damage. A boy needs time to recover.

The Andorian Incident


31 Oct 01

Gets skeeved by Vulcan mummies and cobwebs. Brief but moderate Andorian Fu.

Breaking the Ice


7 Nov 01

They could have called it "Breaking Wind," but that's about the only embarrassment Trip doesn't have to suffer. Our boy obligates himself to read a very personal letter for T'Pol and then busts himself for it, gets stuck with the "poop question" from his nephew's fourth-grade class, and for a grand finale squirms through a "birds and the sehlats" Vulcan cultural exchange.



14 Nov 01

No damage. And he doesn't even have to watch Archer try to play Kirk.

Fortunate Son


21 Nov 01

No damage. Fortunate Trip.

Cold Front


28 Nov 01

Watches Crewman Daniels get painfully FOOMed. I consider that at least emotional trauma, whether he liked the guy or not.

Silent Enemy


16 Jan 02

Cap'n doubts his team's ability to do as well as Jupiter Station's boys. Reed pisses him off by making risky modifications without getting permission first. More like "Sulky Front."

Dear Doctor


23 Jan 02

No damage. Not much screen time either. I do not consider crying at a sad movie to be "damage;" it's a healthy emotional response.

Sleeping Dogs


30 Jan 02

No damage. He wisely stayed out of Sickbay when the Klingon woman was conscious.

Shadows of P'Jem


6 Feb 02

Archer dangles a visit to a Coridan shipyard in front of him like a steak, then takes T'Pol. Gets hung up on twice. Kidnapped and tied up briefly. Minor Andorian Fu. Gets caught in Andorian-Vulcan-Coridan shoot-em-up.

Shuttlepod One


13 Feb 02

Reed whines and pines until Trip threatens to open up a can of cranky-ass, then they both get roaring drunk and nearly freeze solid before bonding.



27 Feb 02

No damage. Whoever's running the "Folded Spindled Mutilated T'Pol" page gets this one.

Rogue Planet


20 Mar 02

Has to listen to Archer recite mediocre poetry and drool over a shapeshifter who looks like she (it?) was auditioning for an Herbal Essences shampoo commercial. And didn't get the job.



27 Mar 02

Runs around for half of the episode in tight blue Starfleet-issue skivvies. (Yum.) A little Ferengi Fu.



3 Mar 02

Saved from a finger-toasting by a Kesalike, but then discovers her family is kind of light-headed.



24 Apr 02

No damage. Clearing his mind for the next episode.

Vox Sola


1 May 02

Snot me, Cap'n!

Fallen Hero


8 May 02

T'Pol recommends that Trip (and the rest of the crew) need to get some action. When he shows up on the bridge in a Hawaiian Shirt Friday ensemble, she explains she didn't mean "lei'd." Archer seconds the original implication. At dinner, Trip is inadvertently rude to a visiting Vulcan diplomat, and she teasingly scolds him. The Chief Engineer then panics when asked to get the wimpy-ass engines up to a screaming Warp Five.

Desert Crossing

8 May 02

Beaten at a sports game, sunburn, heat stroke, dehydration, hallucinations, bombing, "in Russia we don't eat this part of the dog" soup, and -- the unkindest cut of all -- sand down his shorts.

Two Days and Two Nights


15 May 02

aka Two Dopes and Two Muggers. More skivvies, some booze, gratuitous ogling, a little B&D. This ain't no kid show! This episode was the finale of the hat trick which convinced me to launch the site.



22 May 02

Another Shimmy-Shimmy-Shakin' Shuttlepod and a mild concussion, both in the teaser, but he's up and griping shortly after the credits finish rolling.

Minor Abrasions


Single photos from episodes which didn't have enough damage (or plot) to warrant a full page, and other miscellany.
