Why would Trip not be in season 5? Even if we take "These Are the Voyages..." as canon (personally, I think it was a bad holodeck program Riker was running), it was supposed to be a jump years into the future, ten years I think. Plenty of time for more ENT.

The downside I see is that the actors haven't been kept on ice all this time - they're all visibly older than they were.

Also, I cannot in good conscience lend my report to any proposal which I cannot read without gritting my teeth. You do not need to put an apostrophe before every single terminal S!! That's to be used when the terminal S is part of a contraction (as in "that's", a contraction of "that is"), to indicate something has been taken out in contracting two (or sometimes more) words into one. It is not merely "a thing that goes in front of an S!" </rant>
