That jackass engineer that somehow felt the need to say his full name - first, middle and last - every time he got on the comm system.
Yes, but EVERYBODY rolled their eyes! That made it great!

Lieutenant Commander Leland T. Lynch FTW.

No other officers in the entire history of the series has ever felt the need to announce themselves using their entire rank and full name including middle initial.
Captain James T. Kirk would like to talk to you...
Captain Jean-Luc Picard would also like a chat...

The novel "Kobayashi Maru" had the best reaction to Kirk using "Captain James T. Kirk" as his introduction on subspace. First the Klingons going; 'What, THE Captain James T. Kirk?....oh I'm sorry, please don't kill us' type response, followed by the "dead" navigator cracking up in his seat.

Lieutenant Commander Leland T. Lynch however, feels it necessary to give his full name and rank during routine shipboard intercom conversations. Maybe he adds his serial number in subspace communications.

Neither of which introduced themselves in such a manner in every. Single. Communication they had with other people.

Lore was a dick.
Sirma Kolrami was a smug little prick that got pwned by Data.
Norah Satie was a racist asshole.
Nechayev was a total beeotch.
Ensign Ro was an insufferable bukyak.
Caveman Riker should have been tried for murder, after breaking that ensign's neck in Genesis.

In what way?

Satie was paranoid to a fault, yes. She saw conspiracies around every corner. But I see no indication that she was racist.

If you're implying that she had a hatred of, say, Klingons, just because of her attitude towards J'Dan, I remind you that she thought quite highly of Worf.

So, I'm rewatching The Next Generation.
There have already been a couple of Officers who are complete arses...
So far, Lt. Logan is the biggest one.

He tries to have Geordi second guess himself, then tries to convince him to leave the Away-Team on the Planet.

Then, when Geordi decides to leave the Away-Team, Lt. Logan acts all incredulous and high-and-mighty, like he wouldn't do that when he was the first to suggest it!

Who and why do you feel belongs to this list?
LaForge had a lot more patience than I would have. And, Troi - realistically - gave LaForge support. (Note: I have came across people like Logan in 'real life' - pretty much self-appointed managers - so I can definitely relate).

I do nominate the Admiral from "Ensign Ro" as well.....but I can't necessarily nominate Nechayev. She's stern, but a reasonable individual. (I've also known people like her. As long as you respect their position, show intelligence...they'll respect you).

I think he's referring to her treatment of Simon Tarses, accusing him of treason because he was 1/4 Romulan.

Well, pretty much her treatment of EVERYONE on the ship, including Worf, after it was made clear the accident in engineering was a mechanical malfunction and not sabotage.

Re: StarFleet Officers that are A..h...s

Oh. Tarses. Right.

Although isn't Satie's problem with him not *that* he's 1/4 Romulan, but that he lied about it? In which case I could understand. You don't lie on an Academy application, no matter what the circumstances.
