Can anyone define (and point me in the direction of some reference material) what degenerated triangle strips are, and why they are used. Thanks.

There are no real degenerated strips, but people use degenerated triangles in strips to be able to connect two strips that couldnt fit together because of different vertex ordering/overlapping. Vertex ordering is very important in strips.
