Connor Trinneer (born March 19, 1969) is an American film, stage and television actor. His highest profile roles have been those of Charles "Trip" Tucker III on Star Trek: Enterprise and Michael on Stargate Atlantis.
Trinneer was born on March 19, 1969 in Walla Walla, Washington, but spent many years in Kelso, where he attended elementary, middle and then Kelso High School. He attended Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma. While at PLU, he played college football. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in acting, then went on to obtain a Master of Fine Arts degree from University of Missouri–Kansas City.
He first came to attention in Arcadia at the Huntington Theater Company in Boston. Much of his work to date has been in theater, specifically a long association with the Circle X Theatre Company in Hollywood.
He has had several guest-starring roles on television, including One Life to Live, Sliders and Touched by an Angel. He also had a significant role in the TV adaptation of A.R. Gurney's Far East, playing the conflicted gay officer Bob Munger.
In 2001, he auditioned for Star Trek: Enterprise. At the time he was unaware of the significance of the franchise as he didn't follow science fiction. He said that he gained the role of Charles "Trip" Tucker III through sheer luck, as he anticipated that more than a hundred actors would have auditioned for the part. Trinneer didn't know what to expect from the part, as during the audition he had only the seven pages of script to base his performance from as he was only told that the character originated from the Southern United States.
After the cancellation of Enterprise, Trinneer returned to guest-starring roles on such series as Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, 24 and a recurring role as the Wraith Michael in Stargate Atlantis.
Trinneer married Ariana Navarre on May 29, 2004; they have a son, Jasper born in 2005.
