THE SHORT VERSION: Paramount owns Star Trek and everything to do with it. I make no money off this site; it's just for fun. For more details, read the long version. Live long and prosper.

 
History

Update history and random photos.


Robe Alert!

Trip {sighing}: Ah wish Cap'n would turn up the thermostat -- the halls are awful drafty.
Malcolm: But think of your fans, Commander. They do so enjoy glimpses of your lovely --
Archer: Lieutenant! This is a PG-13 website!
Malcolm:
-- knees. He's got quite fetching knees, don't you agree, Captain?
Trip: Fetch me some aspirin, wouldja, Mal? Ah definitely feel a headache comin' on.

July 4, 2006: Happy Fourth! Fourth Birthday to TripHammered, that is. :) No revamp for this anniversary, since TrinneerHammered is just a subsection and not (yet) worth a promotion to the nav bar. As always, thank you for coming to my humble site, and I'll keep trying to find ways to amuse you. Oh, and Happy belated Canada Day to my northern fans, and Happy Independence Day to my fellow 'Merkins, which makes this Thumb Your Nose at Britannia Week. :D

I wouldn't call this "amusement" as much as "entertainment," but it's hot: this is the first time I've found a YouTube video which warrants a public link. Stevie Wonder does a fantastic, nearly seven-minute live rendition of "Superstition," on Sesame Street of all programs, allegedly back in the first season (1969-70). Why don't they work that back into repeats rotation?! (Because it's nearly seven minutes long, and the Street's current audience doesn't have that kind of attention span. Sigh.)

July 10, 2006: An actual ENT link: an ENT/Monty Python spoof, Captain Archer and the Holy Grail. Plus this little computer origami geek thing: How to Make a Starship Enterprise Out of a Floppy.

July 17, 2006: Two TrinneerHammered updates this week: a one-paragraph blurb on SGA's "No Man's Land," and a full recap for "Michael." My great thanks to Hoshissis, who provided many of the screencaps. Warning: there are over 40 images in this recap, so if you're still on dialup, it's going to take a little while to load.

July 24, 2006: Added a blurb for SGA's "Misbegotten." Wrapped up the storyline, but Michael himself got fairly short shrift (although we did get to see Connor sans latex again). Since his death wasn't confirmed, there's always the chance he could return.

Zeke very nicely passed on the new location of Enterprise Oddities, which was sorely missed. Thanks!

July 31, 2006: Find a chair and get comfy: Star Trek: Minutae has a long and extended list of Trek parodies, lists, jokes, and images (I'm fairly sure it's all clean, but I haven't checked every link, so be advised), although it seems that it hasn't been updated since VOY ended.

August 7, 2006: A Trip-centric Get Me Rewrite!

August 14, 2006: Trip always brings out the best in the captions. Keep 'em coming! In the meantime, I am lifting a link recommended by Zeke: Star Trek Inspirational Posters, based on the Motivational (and the Demotivational) posters which blight some offices. These are very funny, and if anyone is similarly inspired to throw some together for ENT, I'll be happy to post them.

August 21, 2006: Archer4Trip found a site which lets you create your own motivational posters. You can use photos from the official site or places like TrekCore, you supply the word or phrase and the "motivation," and it creates the image. Send me your creations and I'll post the best.

In the meantime, how many Trekkies does it take to change a light bulb?

Oh, and two different attendees at the Las Vegas Creation con, where Connor and Dominic were both guests, reported that Connor told the audience he was returning to film another Stargate: Atlantis spot, as Michael. No word yet on when or doing what. But yay anyway!

The Odd C'ouple

Trip: That stinkin sonofa -- he hung up on me again, didn't he.
Soval: Yes.
Trip: Just because he's got a new series --
Soval: The second, I believe.
Trip: Nobody could even see his face on Prison Break! That doesn't count.
Soval: Nevertheless, he has severed our connection.
Trip: Fine. Jus' fine. We'll just have our get-together without our two-ridge-faced friend. And what's he so damn excited about anyway? He's one of nine leads in the new show. He was one of seven with us. He'll get less screen time.
Soval: Perhaps the emotional upheaval of two successive roles has, I believe the vernacular is, "swelled his head"?
Trip: Ah'm gonna swell his lip if he hangs up on me again.

August 28, 2006: Okay, I had way too much fun making these posters. The original link which Zeke mentioned used some lines from his site's fivers, so if you want to make your own hint hint you can look for properly-credited inspiration there.

September 4, 2006: You may remember that I've promoted a webcomic called "Sheldon," drawn by the funny and talented Dave Kellett. Recently the strip ran a series about "Lame Sci-Fi Characters," and I thought it was funny enough to share with the rest of the class. Enjoy. In fact, if you really enjoy it, email Dave and tell him so.

I'm getting in quite a few ENT motivators, and some BSG ones as well, to be posted next week. Keep 'em coming!

September 12, 2006: My loyal readers come through! I've expanded to a second page of ENT Motivators with help from VFlick and Kelly. Thanks! Please feel free to keep sending them -- and for any other Trek series or even BSG if you're so minded.

September 18, 2006: Gearing up for BSG2K's return in October (sometime... still not sure when), we have a set of BSG Motivators.

September 25, 2006: We have a few more ENT motivators. Please feel free to keep sending them if something strikes your fancy.

October 2, 2006: Garsh, more actual ENT content! Dodo kindly scanned pages from SFX magazine's October issue, which contains a brand-new three-page interview with Connor (page 1, 2, 3) and four pages of complied interviews with Jolene (page 1, 2, 3, 4).

And to get us warmed up for the two-hour premiere on Friday night, here's a BSG2K Get Me Rewrite! Usual disclaimers apply.

October 9, 2006: Commentary for "Occupation/Precipice" is up. A good, dense intro to the new chapter in the saga, with some questionable moral choices on the part of heroes and villains alike.

October 16, 2006: "Exodus, part 1" commentary is up. I was listening to the podcast for "Occupation/Precipe," and Ron Moore introduces his wife, "Mrs. Ron," and "our two new kittens," who proceed to knock things over and mew in the background until she removes them. Then the dog comes in. He has not a pompous bone in his body, does he?

October 23, 2006: I was in fact able to put together my commentary for "Exodus, part 2" on time, as well as do some housekeeping on the Off-Topic page. I've broken out the commentaries for BSG2K's seasons 2 and 3 onto separate pages, since it was starting to get unwieldy.

October 30, 2006: "Collaborators" commentary up. Kind of a cleanup episode, moving things from point A to B to set up larger arcs. An ENT Get Me Rewrite is coming up.

Mikey and the MentosOctober 31, 2006: Sheldon, that web comic I keep plugging because it's really funny, will be moving to its own server and off comics.com on November 7. New comics will appear on www.sheldoncomics.com, which will no longer refer to the comics.com site. Five years of archived cartoons will be available, plus you can buy both books, so please stop by!

November 6, 2006: Commentary for "Torn" is up. Plus we have a "Get Me Rewrite!" starring Trip and Mal in their tighty-bluesies. Please note: This is a PG-13 site. No crude or lewd punchlines, please.

November 13, 2006: Commentary on "A Measure of Salvation" is up.

November 20, 2006: Those crazy Diet-Coke-and-Mentos guys are at it again -- only this time, it doesn't merely fountain, it dominoes!

November 23, 2006: Here's the commentary for "Hero." No new episode this week, so the next one should be on time.

November 27, 2006: Classic writes to let everyone know that the Family Guy episode which Connor did, "The Road to Rupert," appears to be scheduled for January 7, 2007, and that Connor's Michael Kenmore episode, "Vengeance," is the penultimate SG:A for its season 3, airing in May or June. Thanks for the updates! I will post confirmations as the airings get closer.

December 3, 2006: Kneel before Zod! And vote for him!

December 11, 2006: Connor did a nice interview witih TheSciFiWorld.net, talking about both ENT and SG:A, and we've also got a new photo for "Those SHIRTS!"

December 15, 2006: A short commentary on "The Passage," plus a blurb on "Without a Trace" for TrinneerHammered.

December 18, 2006: That's more like it! I liked "Eye of Jupiter" better than "The Passage," which is not to say it didn't have its flaws. If Connor has any kind of a recognizable role on "Family Guy" I'll put something up.

December 25, 2006: Even the Mythbusters guys got into the Mentos and Diet Coke thing, in Episode 57.

Mal looking pensive

It was a hell of a run, wasn't it, my friend?

January 1, 2007: Since this is the time of year for endings and beginnings, it seems appropriate to make this transition now. ENT has been off the air for a year and a half, and all the new content has been related to other things. I think it's time to wrap this up. I will not be making any more regular updates to TripHammered. I could add material like the 800-odd limericks from the TrekBBS threads, or the calendar pages I've done for the House of Tucker, but it just feels like padding, and I'd rather go out leaving people wanting more.

The site is not being taken down. I will be leaving it online pretty much indefinitely, since people are finding the series for the first time even now, and the comments on the episodes are still relevant if you're watching them. I'll add to TrinneerHammered when Connor gets other work which qualifies, and post a notice here. While I enjoy doing the BSG commentaries, the new air schedule just doesn't give me the time to work on them.

I have met many wonderful people through ENT and through TripHammered, and it has been a privilege to entertain you. Long life and prosperity to everyone.
