I didn't think Geordi would trail behind.
Geordi was just so vanilla as a character. Outside of the visor, there was nothing to really distinguish him from background extras.

I don't know if he counts as an engineer, but what, no love for Kosinski?

(Just kidding, nobody loved Kosinski.)

On a side note, it's kind of odd that we never saw Lily do anything remotely engineering-related. Yes, we know who she was and the dialogue indicated that she did plenty, but it was all tell and not show (compared to Cochrane, who justifiably had a few scenes working with Starfleet personnel). Still, her practical attitude and Alfre Woodard's performance still earn her high marks, and I'd be happy to have her as part of my crew.

^This.

Argyle and MacDougal were in Galaxy's Child?! Makes me wonder if I ever watched it! How do they explain their apparent demotions?

And, truth be told, unless it's a romantic weekend on Risa, Scotty's probably more fun off duty, too.

I think Singh could be labeled a lot of things but he wasn't known for engineering.

I thought he meant Khan Noonien Singh. The other two didn't really do anything.

Am I really the only one who noticed Nog was listed instead of Rom?

Nog served as chief engineer of the Valiant. In a poll with lesser characters, I think Nog belongs.

Rom should definitely have been included in the poll, though.
