except Scotty IMO because he is just to much of a departure...
A departure from the Scotty of "Tribbles", "Wolf in the Fold" and ST IV?
Too much of a departure overall - yes. TOS Scotty was left in charge of the Enterprise on many occasions. NuSulu would make an excellent officer of the watch. NuScotty seems to lack the discipline and focus to carry that off. This plays into the fallacy that being a fabulous engineer means you should be chief engineer. Being a good officer means you should be chief engineer. You can use the brains of your more qualified sub-ordinates where necessary. TOS Scotty was both. NuScotty so far has only been a fabulous engineer.
