Wherein we recount the embarrassments,
humiliations, poking, prodding, snotting, running around in
underwear, smothering, folding, spindling, mutilating, freezing,
burning, shooting, and otherwise tormenting of Commander Charles
"Trip" Tucker III, chief engineer of the starship Enterprise
"Satire is the most aggressive
form of flattery." -- Charles Poore
Trip: Sorry, doc, Ah just can't
let you do it.
Phlox: But they're so cute!
Trip: Not while Ah'm in command.
Phlox: Hoshi said sehlats are just Vulcan teddy
Trip: Not precisely, Doctor. On Vulcan,
the teddy bears are alive, and they have six-inch fangs.
Welcome to TripHammered, the most
dedicated reporting (and mocking) of Trip Tucker damage
on the Internet.
TripHammered is primarily focused
on detailing the various distresses and disasters which befall
Trip Tucker, secondarily devoted to general ENT commentary,
and entirely done in fun. I'm an opinionated wiseass. I make
a lot of dumb jokes paired with (I hope) intelligent reflections
on the episodes as they aired.
"Star Trek: Enterprise" aired from
2001 to 2005. When Trip got, uh, hammered pretty badly, I
did a full recap of the episode.
If the damage was minor, it got one photo and a blurb. Plus
I rambled on the front page about what I thought went right
and wrong. Those yammerings, other screencaps with fun captions,
and all the other blather from the site's inception are
the History pages.
Related to the show are "Extras," which
ran during off-weeks and summers, ranging from caption
contests, Choose Your Own
ENTventure, and ENT Libs to
DVD commentaries, essays, April Fool's Day gags, and the
ever-popular Food Chain.
Anything not related to the show (which happened more often
after ENT went off the air) is gathered under "Off-Topic," which
has about two seasons of Battlestar Galactica 2K commentary,
a damage toteboard of Connor Trinneer's work on other shows
movie and book reviews, and random fun stuff about other
shows in the Trek franchise. And there's the obligatory Links page.
So welcome, and please come in -- there's lots
