Was Rom Starfleet or did he work with the Bajoran? I wasn't aiming for Starfleet only but I guess now it is.

So I'm the only one to vote for Argyle. I always liked that man and I'm sorry that he didn't become a recurring character.

Re: Who's your favorite engineers? (Multiple choice)

IIRC Argyle asked the why questions for the audience (in the Lore episode), but as the character who asked them, he came off as a bit oblivious. Plus, I am a little biased toward him (and Sarah). It was an opportunity for O'brien to be on scene and I wanted him to be the Nurse Ogawa of engineering, though IMO Sonya would have topped him in that role.

If I had to pick, my top choice would be Soctty with second choice being O'Brien.

TOS Scotty, then O'Brien with Geordi trailing a distant 3rd for me.

I took: Trip, Miles and B'elanna.

Those three to me had more of an edge [than Scotty/Geordi etc] and I also just really like the three of them as characters. In some ways, they are three of the more relatable characters in all of Trek.

I chose O'Brien, but it was tough. Geordi, Scotty (both versions), Trip and B'elanna are all great characters.

Re: Who's your favorite engineers? (Multiple choice)

I voted O'Brien. It was between him and Scotty for me, I think the 'big three' approach to the TOS writing that excluded Scotty places O'Brien a little higher for me. He just got a lot more development.

Is this poll limited to Starfleet engineers? Why no Rom option?

How is Geordi a milquetoast? I never had that impression of him at all.

Re: Who's your favorite engineers? (Multiple choice)

I voted O'Brien and TOS-Scotty. Reliable no-nonsense men who get the job done.

I'm sure Geordi is a very capable engineer, but sometimes he comes across as a manager who lets his underlings do the real work from behind his desk/console.

B'Elanna.....it's a miracle she even has any underlings left, with her temper.

Trip. Well, he got the job because he knew the Cap'ten.

JJ-Scotty I can't take seriously. A barely competent clown, much like the rest of the characters in JJ-Trek.
