Re: Did they ever explain how Geordi...

And why was it many of the chief engineers were so unlikable?

OK, Singh was fairly likable, but then they immediately killed him. Usually whenever you see a character who is totally nice, you know they're gonna GET IT.

Lynch (sorry, Leland T. Lynch) and Logan were insufferable. I guess the only way early TNG could have conflict between the crew would be to have nobodies come in and cause the conflict (see also Kosinski). MacDougal wasn't much of a character either. She spent most of the time being annoyed.

I guess Argyle came off the best, since he got to be in it twice, but then the actor cheated to try and get the role full-time.
